The pain of living in a tropical country is once again knocking on our doors, as the cold season finally bid its farewell, giving way to the warm weather.
It is during this time of the year that families, friends, and coworkers plan their much awaited travel escapades to beaches and resorts, to finally get a cool splash of water after enduring the summer heat.
It is quite unsettling, however, to always have to hunt for a great place to stay, one that preferably has good reviews and complete amenities, while making sure that everything is still within the budget.
Now, imagine living inside a resort, only better: you actually have your own home, and you’re cooking breakfast while taking in a stunning view of the lake just outside your window.
Away from the hassle
The Lake at St. Charbel goes right ahead to giving you exactly what you want, and not just during summertime.
Situated just 21 kilometers south of Manila, this island paradise lets you skip the hassle of competing against other tourists and travelers for the best villa in a resort or the best hotel room at a beach.
A home at The Lake, one of Sta. Lucia Land’s residential offerings, ensures you everything you need for your weekend getaway is complete.
The 28-hectare gated community in Dasmariñas City, Cavite features a scenic lake where families looking for more than just a splash of water can enjoy kayaking. Lax groups may bring out their blankets and snacks at the island’s landscaped picnic area while taking in the serene beauty of nature.
If you’re staying just for the weekend and you’re looking for some time to spend with your neighbors, head right to The Lake’s clubhouse and sing the night away with karaoke and a few drinks or score some hoops at the full-size basketball court.
Meanwhile, old souls just wanting to spend some time alone can venture to the island’s coffee shop and snuggle with their latest read.
Dasmariñas charm
However, investing in a home is far from easy. Aside from the expense of finally having your dream come to life, you would always want to make sure that it would still give you the same satisfaction in the long run.
Why a home in Dasmariñas?
Being in close proximity to the Philippines’ capital city as well as the buzzing streets of Makati often troubles tourists. But Dasmariñas still boasts of the peaceful countryside charm.
Adding to the beauty of living in this city is that it is at the heart of various travel destinations in the south: it gives you easy access to Emilio Aguinaldo Highway, which is your way toward the cool winds and outdoor activities of Tagaytay City, the country’s second summer capital.
You can also bask in the beauty of nature while hiking at Mt. Palay-Palay National Park in Nasugbu, Batangas province.
Wait no more for a taste of summer vacation when you get that dream home in Dasmariñas, where you won’t have to suffer the struggle of fully booked hotels and beaches, all while never running out of new adventures.
