Pose ulit, sorry ginanahan lang. Ngehehe bakit, kayo lang ba ang marunong?

Overlooking Davao Gulf

The club house which is still under construction. Behind the building is Mt. Apo, there’s unfortunately nothing much to see of the majestic slope because it was covered with clouds.

Beyond nature. The country club lifestyle.
Swimming Pool (still under construction), one of the club house facilities.

A myriad of sports and leisure activities will be offered including:

At Villa de Mercedes, the beauty of nature more than just sits as a distant view from your home. It is nature at your very doorstep and the world unfolding before your eyes. The natural terrain of slopes amidst grassy meadows and local flora and fauna, greet you each morning.

The majesty of Mt. Apo bidding you good day as you leave home in the morning, is rivaled only by the calming welcome of Davao Gulf as you drive home at the end of the day.

Combining the best that life has to offer, Villa de Mercedes is situated within Toril at 535 feet above sea level, yet only 30 minutes away from the city. It is a breathtaking residential development nestled atop the hills of Catigan.

How true, how true! We went there this afternoon para matingnan ang site (my first visit since we bought our lot year 2005) at talaga naman pong ako ay nabighani sa kagandahan ng buong paligid. Talo po kamo ang Tagaytay noh? Buti nalang hindi ako nagpadala sa mga paninira ng ibang real estate agents sa Villa de Mercedes, orelse, naibenta ko na ito.

Speaking of real estate agents, super dami nila dito. You can see them in the malls and even in some beaches. Kararating mo palang sasalubungin ka nila ng mga brochures and by the time you stop, you bet they will nail you with all their blahs. Anyways, madalas ko naman silang nalulusutan by telling them na meron na kaming nabili. Pero may mga pagkakataon ding may mga agents akong nakaharap na super kulit at malakas ang loob na siraan ang ibang land developer. Like in my case, some said that Villa de Mercedes is so far away from the city, that the area – (depends on the weather) is stinky due to Nenita Farms at anek-anek pang paninira.

Okay, granted it is a bit far. But what is 30 minutes drive? I’d rather live in a place away from the city, where I can enjoy serenity, fresh air and above all…the beauty of the nature. Sabagay, iba-iba naman ang gusto ng mga tao. Some people love the urban life, hubby and I prefers solitude. Where we still have the freedom to play Tarzan and Jane (hehehe).

O ano, housing lot amidst the nature anyone?

Perfect Touch For Our New Home

I need to find some blinds for the new home we will be moving into next month. Since I still have no idea what I want, I decided to surf the net to see what I could find. Imagine my delight when I found premium basswood blinds. The wood blinds I fancy looks nice, modern, reasonably priced and handcrafted from 100% Grade A Basswood. A perfect finishing touch for our new home.
