by Ina Louise Manto | August 09, 2021
Nestled on a private beach, Banak Beach House is a beachfront hideaway that will let you enjoy a rustic and artsy atmosphere at the seaside. There are many resorts with modern interior design around Calatagan already; why don’t you spend your next vacation at a family-owned home boasting charming architecture and unique décor?
Banak Beach House
Surrounded by trees and an unobstructed view of the sea, Banak Beach House was built by an artistic family. They utilized wood planks and antique wood from churches and galleons, which makes the place more charming. Materials you’d find in old Filipino homes are also seen in the house, including capiz shell windows and nipa roofs. There are also murals on its walls, portraying the history and story of the coral reefs that you can explore nearby.
There are three rooms in the house, all of which are equipped with a private bath and can accommodate seven guests. Up to 14 guests can be accommodated without an additional charge, but extra guests must bring their own sheets and pillows. The same wooden material is also used in the canopy and poster beds. The rooms also feature artwork made by the family members.
The beach house features an open plan design, making the dining and living areas perfect for lounging and making meaningful conversations with family or friends.
There are two kitchens on the property: a fully-equipped indoor kitchen and a BBQ grill area outdoors. Several lounge areas can also be found around the property, including sunbeds by the beach.
The private beach is yours to explore during your stay at Banak Beach House. You can arrange an exclusive tour of Starfish Island that offers white sand and a stunning sandbar. It’s also dubbed as Batangas’ Little Boracay!
You can also learn about history when you visit Punta de Santiago Lighthouse or Cape Santiago, one of two province’s only lighthouses. Built in 1887, it’s Batangas’ oldest lighthouse and one of the oldest in the country.
