I really needed to get away from it all this weekend! You know that kind of feeling when all you need is a whiff of fresh air and just a change of environment? We were invited to my godson’s first birthday party over at the Anvaya Cove so I decided to make a full weekend out of it. Never mind if there was an impending storm in the area, I was determined to get out of the city!
I work Saturdays, so right after work, we drove up to Anvaya. I was so surprised at how great the roads were. It was a really quick drive, not counting the traffic along EDSA. It took us under 3 hours, and my driver even said that without the outgoing city traffic, he could do it in under 2 and half hours. A family friend has a villa up there and they were so generous to let me borrow it.
Anvaya cove ROCKS! It was so beautiful! It was everything I really needed and more. The weather was quite weird – sunny one minute and rains and winds the next. I did not mind because I loved it! The house was perfect, as they had the Jacuzzi warmed up and we had many hours to relax in the pool with our wine glasses in hand! Even if it was just overnight, it was such a treat. I really wanted to stay longer but alas, work beckons. I do hope that I get invited again?
The lush greens and the impressive trees were just so poetic around the Anvaya cove. This is an Ayala land property. I think it's their first venture in the leisure market and I was very impressed!
This was the entrance of the villa we borrowed. It was really nice. Just the perfect size.
The villa is surrounded with so much greenery that you could really feel your lungs take in all the fresh air. I loved the Jacuzzi/pool as it was so inviting and relaxing. I went on a lazy mode immediately.
The plants here are so healthy!
We peeked inside the villa next door and I almost collapsed with the beauty of the view! OMG! The weather made the waves extra strong! I really really want a place like this!
The pool and the deck spread out to this amazing view!
Pauline came over to try out the Jacuzzi! We actually ended up quite late but it was truly a much needed break.
