Set within a family compound, this simple bungalow feels like an ancestral home, even though it’s not all that old. The house is a favorite gathering place of other members of the family—who live nearby—and has many spaces well suited to casual conversations and relaxed lounging. It also holds most of the old furniture from house where the family grew up. The native details, wooden furniture, and collected knick-knacks make it a truly Filipino home with a history—and a place where more memories are made every day.
