Why go to Baguio again and again if you’ve done all the tourist destinations already? It is widely acknowledged that Baguio has a muse, and quiet visits nurture and enrich your soul. For quiet, relaxing retreats in this hillstation, go to a B&B that will let you turn off—but still, have access to a strong wifi signal. If you're planning to visit the City of Pines soon, you may want to consider staying at Bliss Homestay. Here are reasons why it's worth it:

It has a quiet location.

Just a short stroll from St. Joseph’s and Wright Park—an even shorter ride by jeepney—Bliss Homestay is at the basement of a beautiful Baguio house surrounded by tall pine trees with a brook nearby. It is in a quiet residential area that gives you a taste of the local and not just of being a tourist.

The interiors will leave you inspired and curious about art.

Inside is a treasure trove of artistic works of art and antique collectibles of the Asian vibrant variety. The owners are vegetarian Buddhists who like engaging guests in meaningful conversations about travel, art, music, China and Japan, and nature, among others. You can request in advance for breakfast to be prepared, and know that they will be made with the freshest ingredients from the market in flavorful vegetarian style.

The 33sqm room can comfortably sleep four with mattresses piled on the floor. The receiving area is set off with a beautiful Asian divider and there is a working fireplace that you can request to be lit, especially on those cold, foggy nights that still happen in this part of the city.

There is a big wooden dining table from China with intricate carvings and a smaller table that serves as a snack nook. Most of the pieces are from the collection of co-owner Jim Ward, who has lived all over Asia for about 40 years and used to run the hugely popular Bliss Café.

Enjoy the cozy neighborhood.

There is ample parking, whether you have an SUV or mountain bike. Oh, and there is Oskar, the very friendly and frisky border collie. You can hang out at the garden with him!

Jeepney drivers plying the Pacdal route there know when you say “House of Bliss,” so they can drop you off right at the wooden gate.

Get the Look of Bliss Homestay:

If you loved the vibe and overall theme of Bliss Homestay, recreate it at home by investing in Asian-inspired pieces, bright colors, and a few prints. For starters, a visit to L'Indochine will give you tons of ideas on how to spruce up the different areas at home. You can also visit department stores and secondhand shops for mini decor pieces and various knickknacks that can add character to your space.
