we finally got to use the voucher i won from topaz mommy’s giveaway! 🙂
taken from their website: Crosswinds is a haven south of Manila inspired by the architecture of Switzerland. Rows of picturesque chalets sit serenely on a lush terrain at one of the highest points of Tagaytay. Over 20,000 pine trees perfume the property with its sweet scent, further adding to the calm while the music of interweaving winds soothe the senses.
yep, we definitely saw and smelled them pine trees!
Four distinct enclaves offer a variety of possibilities for its residents. The Swiss Quadrilles,with four homes to a structure, has three storeys to afford the indulgence of space. The Grand Quartier (we stayed here) is a medium-rise condominium that offers a breath-taking view of Tagaytay’s lush landscape. Deux Pointe is a row of duettos or two-homes in a structure situated at the highestpoint of the property. And finally, Custom Home Sites offers the freedom to design and personalized your own Swiss chalet.
this is the grand quartier
and look at our room! huge! miss k settled right in and tuned in to hi5 (she’s crazy about them. she watching their videos several times a day, the yayas and i have serious LSS!). 🙂
and the view from our bedroom? amazing!
we celebrated father’s day here. 🙂
kirsten loved the bed a lot!!!
this was truly a staycation of our dreams. we played, slept, watched television, ate, then played again all day long. ah sleep how i’ve missed you! 😀
the only downside for us (kasi gutumin talaga kami haha!) was that there were no restos open inside and nearby (the cafe across the grand quartier served only breakfast, and it’s a hassle taking that long drive amid steep slopes to go outside) so the very nice front desk staff provides you with a list of food chains offering delivery. we chose chowking and jollibee for lunch and dinner. 🙂
the next day, we trooped to breakfast. there was a nice selection of rice and viands, scrambled egg, cold cuts, cereals, fresh fruits, milk and chocolate drink plus coffee. we enjoyed it a lot. 🙂
and since there was not much left to do (the pool was closed for maintenance), we drove around and took some photos. this place is so relaxing and peaceful. if you’re tired of the city life and just want to get away from it all for a night or two, this is the place. daddy k and i appreciated the serene surroundings and fresh air, and the precious time we spent with our little one without any of the usual distractions.
thanks to topaz mommy for this wonderful staycation! will we go back? definitely! 🙂
