Many of us dream of building a rest house in the future. Whether it's only a quick drive from Manila or a destination that entails a longer road trip, a second home that's far from the hustle and bustle of the city offers a welcome respite. For families with young children, it's not a vacation when there's no swimming pool. When going on a trip, families pick a hotel or resort based on this amenity, and a pool makes a vacation house for rent a more attractive prospect.

So, to help pool-obsessed families for their next holiday out of town, we combed through Airbnb to check out homes with pools that are a few hours drive north of Metro Manila. Schedule a vacation soon and make sure you check out the details that make each property special. Who knows? You might need to come up with a mood board for your dream rest house, soon.

If you're looking for a home that's cozy, check out this bungalow home in Angeles City. Book it even in chillier months as the pool is heated. The kitchen is well-equipped, the living area is air-conditioned, and there's a videoke machine too. Guests, however, commented that the place may be too small for the advertised 12 guest accommodation. But, it's the right size for a family with kids and a couple of relatives tagging along!

Sta. Ana, Pampanga
P17,984/night for 15 guests

Designed with families in mind, this home is situated in a farm compound so surrounding the property are fruit bearing trees, a sprawling garden, and the chirping of birds. Doesn't that sound relaxing? Outdoor amenities include a swimming pool, a treehouse, a gazebo, a half basketball court, and a lawn volleyball court. Ask nicely and the caretakers can tour the kids around the farm which is home to roaming pigs, ducks, chickens and one carabao. You'll never run out of things to do! The home is fully-equipped but a cook can also prepare meals upon request for a fee.
