Chilline T House in Tagaytay City: Scenic Glass House with Beautiful Sunrise View

Last October during my sembreak, we Travel Tripsters together with some friends decided to have an overnight stay at Chilline T House in Tagaytay CityTagaytay City is just an hour and half travel from Manila so it's a great destination for a short vacation.

Chilline T House is located in 138 Talisay Road, Tagaytay City, Cavite.  To get there from the South Luzon Express Way, take the Santa Rosa Exit. Turn right at the top of Tagaytay Ridge and head towards the rotunda and make a left on Talisay Road.  The entrance at Talisay Road has a lot of locals offering Taal Boat ride offers.  Chilline is only one kilometer away.  You can spot its bamboo gate door with its house number 132.

As soon as we parked in the car port which has a capacity of 3 cars, the household helpers assisted us in unloading our things.  We were told that the last guest has just left because we came in.  But, everything looked in order already so I guess they were quick to prepare.

As we entered, we were all awed by its nice interiors.  Its white-wall structure reminded me of Greek-Balearic influence similar to Thunderbird Resort Poro Point in La Union

The stoned stairs and its wooden hand-rails is so beautiful.

The living room is well lit with its circular glass on top that lets in natural light and large glass windows and doors.  There's also small television where we plugged our Xbox to play Dance Central as a group bonding activity.

The living room is a great chillin' place because it has a scenic view of the pool side as well as the taal lake.

The dining hall has large stone table with well-cushioned chairs.  On its walls are abstract paintings which have the same theme with those hanged on the bed room walls.  By the side is a divider which has antique clay pots in display.  The divider can also be used as a buffet table.

Right next to the dining area is the kitchen.  The kitchen is well-equipped, it has a microwave oven, drip-type coffee maker, oven, stove, water dispenser and a two-door refrigerator with freezer.  They also have complete utensils from knife to spatula and glass kitchen wares.  The household helpers assisted us in cooking and preparing our meals.  They also did the dish washing.

The WiFi modem is stationed at the top of the fridge so the kitchen has the stronger WiFi signal.

The kitchen area, dining area and living room area all have meshed sliding doors leading to the pool area.

I love the pool area the most because it offers a nice cool air and a calming scenic view.  We decided to heat the pool at night to avoid the sun rays.  The pool area is well lit even at night.  However, there are some frogs in the area so we had to call the household helpers to shoo them off.  The pool had some cracked tiles too.

chilline tagaytay sauna

From the pool area, there is a stone trail towards the traditional rock sauna room.  The sauna room has a shower area adjacent to it and a rest room just beside it.  The sauna room has seats on two sides which could house up to 6 people.  Before we had our night swim by the pool, we already informed the household helpers to prepare this for us.  So from our chilly night swim at the pool, we headed here for a great relaxation and chatting session while sweating ourselves out.  After our sauna, we showered off before we headed back to our rooms. 

chilline tagaytay master bedroom

This is the master bedroom which not only has a wide floor area but also a wonderful view of taal and the sunrise.  It has a king-sized bed, terrace, dresser, closet area, two sinks, a non-functioning bath tub, toilet area and a shower area.

From the living room there is a stone staircase leading to the second largest room in the house.

The second masters bedroom is located just below the first one.  It has a table and chairs with a nice window view.  It also has a shower room.

The third bedroom is just opposite the main master bedroom.  It has a king-sized bed, a terrace which only had a backyard view and a bathroom with shower, sink and toilet.  Unlike the master bedrooms, it is equipped with air-conditioning.

The last room is found behind the dining room divider and just beside the kitchen.  Thus, its the room with the best Wifi signal.  It has two twin beds, a clothing cabinet and a bath room equipped with shower, sink and toilet.  It also has air-conditioning and a window view of the cliff side.

Since the house is old, we were a bit disappointed that some parts of it were not maintained. For one, the bath tub in the master bedroom is not working.  We were told that it was broken due to guests with kids who jumped on it.  Some floor areas have cracks.  There were also hazardous materials left within public view.  The terraces on the masters bedroom and the room opposite it were full of dust and cob webs.  The second hot tub by beside the pool area is also non-functional.

Sunrise

Despite the minor set backs of the house, all were forgotten as we watched the sunrise by the roof deck and the pool area.

The sunrise is just so beautiful.  As we asked the staff pool cleaner to take our photo, we were told that the Nescafe commercial was taken here too.

After we had our breakfast, the staffs were already busy preparing for their next guest.  They had set up tents by the pool for their wedding reception.

Overall, Chilline T House certainly has the most photogenic and scenic view perfect for events and commercial shooting.  The sunrise view it offers is simply mesmerizing. It's our Travel Tripsters dream to wake up to a beautiful sunrise like that every day.
