10 Cool Airbnbs in Metro Manila

We've found some great destinations for your next staycation!

(SPOT.ph) We know you've heard it before, but the "hustle and bustle" of the city is very real. Life in the Metro can sometimes get so hectic, you might end up feeling suffocated and want to press the eject button. Plus, the worsening traffic and life in general makes it difficult to get that long-overdue vacation you deserve. That doesn’t mean you can’t find other ways to get away from it all, though. Take a day or two off during the weekend, rent a unit, and enjoy a staycation away from home, your work life, and other people.

We scouted some of the most inviting Airbnbs around the Metro—they'll put you in the mood for rest and relaxation.

Here are 10 cool Airbnbs in the Metro for a quick staycation:

Stylish Pad – Your Home in the Heart of BGC


Bonifacio Global City
Entire condominium  three guests • one bedroom, two beds
Rates start at P1,900

This posh unit is quite a steal (or more like a “s-teal,” because of the dominant color, right?) for such a wide space. The dining area is a colorfully quirky bar fixture set against an equally vibrant teal-colored wall. Cheeky art and typography adorn the wall and little nooks of the condo. The extra large curtain dividing the bedroom and the living room is a charming touch. If you're heading out to party the night away, then don't miss the chance to put on your warpaint at the vanity desk—complete with lights bright enough to make you feel like a star. Pro tip: Mendokoro Ramenba is located downstairs, plus Bank Bar, a famous speakeasy, is nearby! We'll leave you to find it.

Entire apartment • six guests • two bedrooms, four beds

Who knew that there would be a Manhattan apartment in Mandaluyong? Hosts Fermil and Trish Añonuevo were inspired by the architecture of New York and provided handpicked furniture and fixtures. And because Fermil is a hardcore Eraserheads fan, there’s a special themed room that includes memorabilia signed by the artists. There's also an Oliver Marquez piece that’s only one of three in a series. The New York-inspired unit’s warm interiors channels a Friends-style pad and is great for bonding with the squad. (Fun fact: There’s a hidden liquor cabinet behind the dining area mirror!)
