Waking up to scenic views of the beach, getting easy access to dive sites, and the laid-back and friendly atmosphere of the community, are just a few of the benefits of living by the beach. Two Batangas properties provide a glimpse into the charm of the beachside lifestyle that will inspire anyone to consider investing in homes near the coast.
The beachfront Crusoe Cabins in CaSoBé (Calatagan South Beach) are aesthetic cabins created from upcycled container vans covered in wooden details that blend seamlessly with the environment. Inspired by the spirit of Robinson Crusoe, the stand-alone accommodations in the prime leisure tourism estate by developer Landco Pacific, offer a taste of tiny home living.
Each modern and comfy cabin is fully air-conditioned and has a main bedroom, a separate living room area with a flat screen TV, kitchenette with minibar, ensuite bathroom, and porch terrace. Crusoe Cabins offers room configurations ideal for groups with two bunk beds good for six people and family units that have a bunk bed and a queen-sized bed that can accommodate five people. Visitors can choose from either Garden, Premiere Garden, Seaview, or Beachfront Cabins.
Meanwhile, Cocoons offers cozy and intimate sleeping spaces for couples and families with small kids. Made from large refurbished concrete pipes, Cocoons offers a glamping meets capsule-hotel-like experience. Each cozy room comes complete with a queen bed, efficient space-saving storage, coffee and tea amenities, TV, mini bar, and safety deposit box.
Guests are encouraged to commune with nature surrounded by Instagrammable open spaces and colorful environment-themed murals and artwork. All rooms are pet-friendly as well.
These custom-designed experiential sleeping spaces by Millennial Resorts, a sister company of Landco Pacific, don’t just offer unique stays. Their compact design serves a functional purpose, making it easy for developers to relocate and transport them once the beach lots are sold.
As part of Landco BeachTowns, the area that the cabins are currently sitting on offers prime residential, tourism and business hubs. The cabins are just a small part of the 15-hectare development of the master-planned leisure community of Landco that is currently open to beach home buyers, businessmen, tourists, and travelers.
With more Filipino families prioritizing work-life balance after the pandemic, the beach town offers a prime area for those who want to start a new business or live inside a beach resort with the convenience of hotel amenities, facilities and services.
The unconventional resorts were set up to drive interest among urban dwellers who want to invest in their own beach home property not far from Manila. The cozy digs also provide a comfortable base for future homeowners and investors to stay while overseeing property development in their lots. This way, they can fully enjoy the area’s facilities while creating a dream beach home worth passing down to the next generation of families.
While staying in the area, guests can also enjoy the bike-friendly Boardwalk, a beach promenade that features cabanas for day visits, with support service amenities that include outdoor showers and water sports equipment for rent.
The estate also has several dining spots restaurants including The Sands, a Filipino-themed seaside restaurant featuring freshly-prepared fare; The Swing Bar, which serves cocktails and light snacks on swing seats; The Coffee Shack, where you can get a coffee fix right by the beach; and Captain Barbozza, a pirate-themed beer shack that serves local and international labels.
Kids can also enjoy access to Aquaria Water Park, a water park that features 5 cove pools, a kiddie poo,l and a giant 3-story high pool slide.
CaSoBē is approximately a 3-hour drive from Metro Manila and 1.5 hours away from Tagaytay City. It’s also accessible via the Manila-Cavite Expressway (CAVITEX) and Star Tollway via Lipa City. Once completed, the proposed Cavite-Tagaytay-Batangas Expressway (CTBEX) will further reduce travel time by approximately one hour.
In case you’re looking for a unique beach getaway, a stay at either Crusoe Cabins or Cocoons offers a memorable experience. Who knows, it may even leave you seriously considering investing in your own beach house in the future.
