ABOUT CASA LUMINARIA
Casa Luminaria was originally built as our family's provincial home. A stones throw away from the Metro, where we could go on weekends to detox from the stress and heavy traffic of Manila . Lipa was the perfect destination for this. In December the weather was cool, but stll comfortable in the summer. We knew it was a perfect place to build our home.
When we first designed and built Casa, we wanted to embody the design aesthetic of a rural Filipino home. We used ventanilas from Bacolod, planks from old Ilocos homes, reclaimed capiz windows, primitiive beds, and colored glass. Though rural, we also made sure to keep the comfort of a modern home. In our main house we have an open plan lanai , spacious powder room , modern kitchen, and a wrap around deck with hammocks and loungers. In our sleep cottages, nipa in style, are situated around the 3 hectare propert. All built to hold family of four and room for 2 more extra beds. All our cottagess have aircondiitioning and a private bath. We have a bath house close to the pool, a dining cottage, and grill hut.
I am often asked, what is there to do in Casa. I have often replied..I normally take the time out to enjoy the surrounding, eat my buko, lay in the hammock, and spend time with my kids. I don't do anything which my soul thanks me for. But for those who do want to be active, we have a chlorine free pool. Enough to keep the kids occupied. I do ask our guest to bring their football and frisbee. Mountain and road bikes are good too because it a great way to go on an adventure around the area.
Casa has become the a wonderful and restful retreat to our guests. In the past three years, we have welcomed people in our home. Doing our best to for them to feel the rest and calm that we do as a family. Welcome to our home.
