La Casita de Baclayon


A hidden Gem.

This would probably be the best way to describe La Casita de Baclayon.  Just a quick drive from Baclayon Church and the town market, this eco bed and breakfast is designed to be a modern take of the traditional “Bahay Kubo”. It also drew inspiration from Indonesian and Mexican architecture.


This is not the only thing that makes the place special, La Casita de Baclayon is also committed to promote Sustainable Architecture, Energy Efficiency and Water Usage, Environmental Protection, Waste Management, Local Food Sourcing and Community Development.


Sustainable Architecture

The main living room is designed to house two large ponds that isn’t just there for aesthetic purposes, it was designed to help keep the place cool.


Another thing about the living room is the absence of walls this provided the area ample ventilation so that there is no need for air-conditioning also it allows light to go in the house to minimize the need for additional lighting.


Energy Efficiency

Each of their bedrooms rooms have its own theme and character. Like the rest of the house, it is also designed in such a way that air can freely flow this is why the rooms didn’t need to have air-condition, a normal ceiling fan and the native Filipino “calado” (perforated wood ventilation panels) that surrounded the room kept it cool enough to stay in. It also has large glass doors and windows so that natural air and light can be utilize.




Local Food Sourcing

The next day we opted to have late breakfast since we woke up super early to go see the dolphins. As we arrived we were already hungry and didn’t expect to see this prepared for us.


To help reduce carbon footprint, La Casita de Baclayon based their menu on the produce that they can get around Baclayon and Bohol. Thank you Oliver for preparing us a very delicious breakfast!


Love the over all look of their kitchen! (won’t mind cooking here for a day)


Look even Ricky (the German Shepherd) is having a great afternoon siesta #alwaysonvacation

I’m so glad that my friend Zaira stumbled into this place, it is truly a hidden paradise. I would definitely love to go back and spend another night or two. Thank you sooo much for accommodating us Sally! we absolutely had a lovely stay.
