Casa Minerva Tagaytay

Casa Minerva, Tagaytay

Early January I got an email from owner of this house inviting me to check out her newly converted bed and breakfast (b&b) home in Tagaytay. Timing was perfect because my boss wanted to have an out of town planning for our team and she agreed to stay here instead of booking somewhere else. This post is basically an ex-deal but I shall try my best to give constructive comments and suggestions for improvement of the property. :)

Moving on.. According to the owner, the house was built back in 1999 and served as their vacation home during her younger years. When her dad died in 2008, the house got neglected and her mom wanted to get rid of the property by selling it. Of course she didn't agree so in 2013, they went back to check the condition of the house and from there they decided to restore and convert it to a b&b house.

Casa Minerva officially opened last November 2014. I asked her who's Minerva (LOL, chismosa ba?) and said she's her favorite Roman goddess.

Our team arrived around 1:30PM but decided to chill muna by watching a movie. There's cable TV and WiFi. Meanwhile, I kept myself busy by documenting parts of the house for my blog. :)

Here's the masters bedroom. It has its own bath but failed to take a photo (may tao kasi sa loob, lol).

Here's room number 1 that's good for 2 pax.

Meanwhile, room number 2 is good for 3 pax. There's an extra bed under the right bed.

Here's the common bath for rooms 1 and 2. My only complaint is that water pressure is low.. probably because someone was also taking a shower from the other bathrooms. But at least they have water heaters installed. ;)

By the way there's a 4th room downstairs that has its own bath too but forgot to take a photo. That's where our driver stayed for the night. ;)

Moving on, of course you're allowed to bring your own food and prepare it in their kitchen. Very convenient din coz you no longer need to go out. ;) But if I may suggest, maybe the owner can add a water dispenser para no need to bring our own right? While I'm at it, maybe you can also add towels. Not that I forgot to bring my own towel, for some travelers it's easier to pack without one.

I like that they maximized the space of the house by adding an outdoor area like the mini garden on the left and a pool on the right. Parang ang sarap tumambay dito with friends on a hot summer day.

The garage can accommodate 1-2 cars but I'm sure management will allow parking outside since di naman busy street yung location ng house. :)

What I like about this house is that it feels like home away from home. Yes, it may look a little bit old but at least they were able to restore and earn something from it. ;)
