Relaxing pool staycation with lake and mountain view at Lily Vacation Farm House in Jala-jala, Rizal

Lily Vacation Farm House does not look like your typical farm or farm house. Upon entering the gate, our group was greeted by the green of grass and trees, and a charming white house standing out from the greenery. The homey interiors open up to a deck with a bright blue pool surrounded by a grassy expanse. Beyond are the calm waters of Laguna de Bay and the outlines of Mt. Banahaw and Makiling in the distance. It gave the vibe of a more luxurious staycation than a farm-cation.

Pool time! Best to wear sunscreen, especially an eco-friendly one!
When not dipping in the pool, it’s great to just have tea or coffee while taking in the view

There are still touches of farm life, though, as we saw the farm horse Chelsea happily munching on grass – I found out later that we could ride her if we wanted – and a white chicken paying us a visit in the house.

Chelsea, Lily Vacation Farm House’s “resident” horse. We chose to just watch her that day, though we were told we could ride her, too!
This friendly chicken visited us while we were sitting and chilling by the pool.

The house’s living room opening up into the pool has soft, comfy sofas we happily sank in after eating and swimming. The walls are decked with tasteful decors in earthy and sunny colors.

The beds in the bedrooms are incredibly comfy. They remind me of hotel beds. Each bedroom also has a flat screen TV great for chill movie watching with family or friends.

Soft, comfy beds!

Guests also have the option for glamping outside, though our group was small enough to stay in the three bedrooms. Glamping sounds like a good option in perfect weather, especially during summer.

With bigger groups especially in this pandemic, it would be good to take advantage of glamping so the big group would be spread out. Due to COVID restrictions, Lily Vacation Farm House only accommodates up to 20 people at the moment.

Other outdoor adventures are available at the resort-type farm aside from glamping, too. There are tire swings hanging from a huge acacia tree, perfect for kids and kids at heart. I haven’t really played with a tire swing when I was a kid, but it was fun trying it out as an adult. Other friends had a go, too, and were more used to riding it than I was.

These swings are perfect for the kids in all of us.

The farm also has facilities for outdoor volleyball and basketball. They have ATV rides, too, which we didn’t anymore have the time to try during our stay. Outdoor film screenings area also available upon request. That would be a perfect way to catch a movie in the big screen this pandemic.

Even just chilling in the pool and walking around the grounds make for a relaxing overnight stay, though. The grounds have a different beauty at night, with the lights in the trees and the pool’s changing colors. Guests also have the option to have a bonfire. Our group opted to just have drinking games and tell stories by the pool.

It was just an overnight stay, but it was enough to relax and recharge with nature, and to also drink and share stories with my staycation companions.
