First, Bea Alonzo took us around her family's farm, Beati Firma, in Zambales, which they acquired in 2011. The actress shared, "Back then, I was very young. Naisip ko, 'Kaya na ba naming mag-farm? Is it worth it? Matututukan ba namin?'" 10 years later, it's a place she considers her "sanctuary" and lucky us, we got a closer look at the properties in the area.

She shared that they actually spend a lot of time in the patio: "Yung talagang bahay, we designed it so that we can spend a lot of time outside because we want to eat al fresco and gusto rin naming ma-appreciate yung view ng mountains...so pina-extend ko talaga 'tong area na 'to." Fun fact: The house used to be a garage before she decided to have it renovated!

On the patio, they have a "breakfast nook," where she and her mom enjoys a meal before her morning run.


May poso rin nearby kasi they used to have one outside their house in Taguig: "It reminds us of our humble beginnings."

Their farm house has two kitchens: Bea's family celebrates a lot of occasions here so they spend a lot of time cooking and preparing food. All over the house, they have illustrations and signages and the one in their kitchen says, "The most important work you will ever will be within the walls of your home."

From the first part of her farm tour, you may recall that we saw signs for the "House of Basha" (guest rooms) and the "House of Santiago" (her brother's home). We didn't get to see the inside of the guest rooms in this vlog because her team's currently staying there, but we did get a peek at her brother's place and it's as homey as you think! Perhaps the most exciting part, though, is when Bea took us inside the main house. Oh my god, you guys. Ang ganda! Bea went for a rustic, vintage vibe inspired by American-style farm houses. I mean, let's all just stare at this living room:

There are beams in the ceiling to create some drama with the lights underneath. Bea highlighted this gorgeous mahogany table and said that they chose to maintain its normal textures.


She also pointed out the windsor chairs by the door: "I like it because it's a classic chair, it matches the entire aesthetic of the place."

By the photo wall is a beautiful bar cart made of wood, leather, and gold hardware.

And in the dining room, you'll find a custom-made table that's also made of mahogany and right next to it is a huge mirror that helps make the space feel a little bit bigger.


Her bedroom is small but very bright. Bea reiterated how special this farm is to her: "It really serves as my sanctuary whenever I'm feeling down. I just come here to feel rejuvenated and realize that I am very lucky to have a family like my family...to have a property like this, we've worked so hard through the years to achieve this, and it's good to always be reminded of the things that you have, especially when you can't have the things that you want."

The bed frame is made of rattan and beside it is a solihiya mirror. Her bathroom looked just as chic, complete with a solihiya cabinet, rose gold hardware, and machuca floor tiles.

Her farm house tour introduced a new dream I didn't even know I had, okay.
