Last June, I went to Tagaytay for the second time this year with the same squad for an overnight stay.

This is our way to relax and escape from the hectic life in the city. It was also our celebration for our groom-to-be friend who will take vows with his long time girlfriend in July this year.

It was Saturday. As usual, we started our trip in the morning. We were driving two vehicles, the first one went ahead to Tagaytay City. Our car needed to fix one of the wheels so it took us hours before getting off the road. Luckily, we found a service along one of  the gasoline station (stopover) in SLEX.

To catch up with our friends, we decided to exit in Mamplasan where an entrance to CALAX is connected to. When we reached interchange to Sta. Rosa, we took off the road going to Silang. We turned right to South Blvd. in South Forbes, Sta. Rosa. We drove ahead to Cardiac Rd. where we notice a huge portion of a golf course in the area. Then in just a few minutes, we already reached Brgy. Tibig Rd. in Silang, Cavite.

Watch our trip here:

ALTERNATE WAY TO TAGAYTAY

When we reached the end of Brgy. Tibig Rd., we took off the road in Brgy. Munting Ilog until we reach Brgy. Ulat Rd. Then instead of finishing off the Ulat Rd., we turned right to Pulong Bunga Rd. This give us an access heading to Emilio Aguinaldo Hi-way. We exited from a place where we saw a signage of Camella Silang.

Somewhere along Brgy. Tibig Road

Though it took us more meters on the road, that way saved us so much time avoiding the heavy traffic along Sta. Rosa - Tagaytay Rd. Specially, a lot of people travel to Tagaytay this time on a Saturday.

Just a few meters away, we took off the access road to the newly opened Tagaytay Bypass Road which brought us straight to Kaybagal North. This saved  us time from time from the jampacked Tagaytay - Nasugbu Rd.

MELIA'S FAMILY HOUSE STAYCATION

In less than 2 hours coming from SLEX, we arrived to our destination. It was past noon when we came in to Melia's Family House. It was a great Airbnb find by my friend, Basti. It is a 3-storey house with living area, dining area, kitchen (and dirty kitchen), a restroom and a guest room in the first floor, entertainment area and two bedrooms in the second, and a spacious rooftop with dining in the third floor. It also features high ceiling in the living area and a floor-to-ceiling glass walls.

The property has covered parking space, a little garden in front of the house and veranda in the second level. We were also given slippers to use inside and another pair of it in the rooftop.
Although we were only seven, the whole house is open for up to 10 persons per stay.

The location of the property is not that far from the city proper. However, it is recommended to bring own vehicle since it is located in a secluded area where public utility vehicles are not available. Though, Savemore in Mendez Crossing is just a few minutes drive away from the house.
Cheapest Flights and Airline Tickets Online Booking
You can book a stay at Melia's Family House on Airbnb app. Rate starts at P8,000 per night. You can use Waze app for directions to this vacation house. 

Hot tip! Buy your pasalubong in the morning (I suggest at around 8am) depending to the opening of stores or establishments in Tagaytay. In our case, we went to Mahogany Market for dried goods like Tawilis at 7:30am, then a quick visit at Balay Dako for their special Piaya and Kuuma Kakao for a pack of Cocoa.

Overall, I enjoyed our short trip to Tagaytay amidst of COVID-19 pandemic. Of course, we wore masks and face shields whenever we were out and about.
