Located along Binictican at Samahan Heights, Subic Homes specializes in vacation villas that are either for daily rent or for long term leases. Situated in a homey, village-like setting, these villas create a somewhat new kind of home away from home, with a neighborhood, and all the right leisure to accompany your vacation.
Subic Homes offers villas with 2 bedrooms, 3 bedrooms and 4 bedrooms, depending on how large the group may be. With very affordable rates, this vacation villa may just be the right option for those who are looking for a weekend away from all the buzz and hassle at home.
We arrived at Subic Homes at around 3pm, a few hours late from our original intended arrival. I checked the group in and retrieved the keys from the main office.
The main office looked like a house itself, fronted by a garage, a garden/yard and surrounded by trees.
In front of the main office was their very homey-style pool. What I noticed and loved about Subic Homes was the fact that there were so many trees around the area, creating good shades, a healthy breeze and the perfect place to rest on a hot day.
Our vacation villa at 72-B was a 3 bedroom villa located just at the side of the main office. When we entered, we were completely blown away by the homey atmosphere of the villa.
Inside the 3 bedroom villa, ground floor, we had a room for drivers and their own private bathroom, a comfort room, a cooking area, a dining table, a comfortable lounge area with a television and a centralized airconditioning unit.
The kitchen, complete with utensils, plates, bowls, refrigerator, stove, microwave and oven, was practically all-white, though not the sickly hospital white, creating a superior clean and sophisticated kitchen.
In the backyard, opened by a large sliding door, there is a carousel for hanging clothes (reminded me of our home in Papua New Guinea) and a barbeque stand.
Upstairs was divided into three rooms and a bathroom.
The master’s bedroom, which I coerced my friends into letting us girls (Kaiz and me) have, had a very large bathroom connected to its own dressing room. The master’s bedroom also had another separate room for what I believe may be its own cabinet area.
One room consisted of a double bed, while the other room had two single beds.
Each room consisted of its own cabinet, dresser table, night lights and a mirror. The huge windows were also an asset to the room’s atmosphere, providing an open spaced, light to the room.
Both bathrooms on the second floor were white, but only the common bath had a bathtub. Each bathroom was complete with shampoo, hand and body liquid soap (which by the way, smelled good) and a bar of soap. Guests are entitled to their own towels too.
The villa was definitely made for groups or families to feel at home away from theirs. Designed to be simple, but sophisticated, the rooms were decorated with paintings, plants and furniture that matched the cool wooden floors and off-white, tiled walls.
As travelers who had a lot of gadgets to charge, we didn’t have to worry, because each room in the villa was abundant with electrical sockets. The television was also equipped with cable, allowing us to enjoy an evening of travel documentaries and shows.
For those looking for a home away from the hustle of the city, Subic Homes recreates an awesome experience in an equally impressive neighborhood-type of resort.
Weekend getaways won’t disappoint as well because Subic Homes has great ties with Tree Top Adventure and Zoobic Safari, both just around the area, with Ocean Adventure as another source of entertainment.
