The rain doesn't have to ruin your weekend family getaway. We combed through Airbnb to check out homes a few hours away from Manila. These have amenities the whole family can enjoy even if the sun isn't out. When the rain stops, they should also have lots of outdoor activities. Here's what we found. Have a happy vacation!

The Kubo

  • Php1,800/night for 3 guests

Want a "maiba naman" vacation? Stay in the Kubo that's just as (or even more) cozy as the next vacation destination. Since it is located in a Numana Farm, there are a lots to do even when the weather's a little rainy! This home is simple but very charming (don't worry it's also airconditioned).

During your stay, the farm's friendly staff can set up lots of activities for you and the kids (make sure to tell them in advance). There's fruit picking, farm animal feeding, night-time bonfires, picnic setups, outdoor movie nights, massages (for mom and dad), and even videoke.

Looking for a quick and easy getaway for the weekend? This home can comfortably accommodate six to eight  people—it has fold-down and pull-out beds! There's also a full kitchen (rice cooker and electric kettle included!), ample seating for meals, and a balcony with a view of Taal Lake.

Head out of the condo, and you can take a dip at the pool (if the weather's good) or let the kids spend an afternoon at the indoor play area (if the weather isn't so nice).

Anilao Cliffhouse

  • Anilao, Batangas
  • Php8,500/night for 9 guests
  • See the listing here

Don't be fooled. You only see a small part of the property. Anilao Cliffhouse is composed of a studio, loft, and music room (with beds), and a spacious outdoor area (it can sleep up to nine people). With that, you get a full kitchen, a pool, access to the beach, and lots of things to do!


On rainy days, enjoy the kid's corner and chill in the music room (it does have instruments, a speaker system, and comfy pillows!) and swing area. When the sun's out, you and the kids can take a dip in the pool, go snorkeling, light up the bonfire, grill barbecues, have a picnic in the outdoor area, or relax under the mango tree. Sound good?

If you're bringing a few more relatives and friends along, Amberfields Farmhouse won't disappoint. Beautifully designed and decorated, the home is fully furnished with three bedrooms and a sprawling garden space. It accommodates a maximum of 30 guests. 

You'll also find a full kitchen (with rice cooker and coffee maker!), a barbecue grill, a billiards table, and kiddie lounge area (with a tent and bean bags!). There's WiFi, too, but with a temporary home this beautiful surrounded by greenery, it's likely the family would much rather get off their screens. 


Albergue de Santa Ana

  • Sta. Ana, Pampanga
  • Php 18,000/night for 15 guests
  • See the listing here

This home, designed with families in mind, is situated in a farm compound; fruit-bearing trees and a sprawling garden surround the property (you'll hear birds chirping, for sure!). Doesn't that sound relaxing? The home has a fully-equipped kitchen, but a cook can also prepare meals upon request for a fee. 

There's lots of space indoors for the kids to play when it's raining. Outdoor amenities include free use of bamboo scooters, a swimming pool, a treehouse, a half basketball court, and a lawn volleyball court. Ask nicely, and the caretakers can tour the kids around the farm, home to roaming pigs, ducks, chickens and a carabao. What past guests have been saying:
