CASITA AURORA BED & BREAKFAST - The best place to stay in Legazpi City!
A beautiful city that sits at the bottom of the world's famous Mt. Mayon Volcano. A land full of adventure and gastronomic delights. Legazpi City is a famous city in the Philippines that should be on everyone's bucket list! But, one place made our stay even more memorable, and it's the Casita Aurora Bed and Breakfast.
A Filipino inspired bed and breakfast infused with different beautiful ideas, Casita Aurora is a place where you will experience the true and warm Filipino hospitality.
This newly opened Bed and Breakfast along Dona Aurora St. in Old Albay District is basically a walking distance to different landmarks in the city such as the Cathedral and the City Hall. Casita Aurora is situated in an ideal spot where everything is just a tricycle or jeepney away.
What also sets this apart from others is the amount of inspiration that was put into Casita Aurora. Every detail was carefully planned and tastefully done. It was as if you are walking back into the good old times. I like how things fit together so well.
My friend and I decided to stay for 3 nights for Php 2000.00 a night to prepare for the Mayon 360 Ultramarathon. As we arrived, we recieved a warm welcome by a very loving couple, Martin and Elizabeth who are the owners of Casita Aurora.
They were very nice to each guest and as mentioned previously, the hospitality they showed to us was incomparable. Casita Aurora later felt like it's not just a bed and breakfast but it's also a home away from home.
The dining area was also very nice and cozy. I looked around and I was really impressed with the different items you could find in the area and yet they looked beautiful! This is how they welcomed their guests.
Casita Aurora have 4 bedrooms and each room tell a beautiful story. The first night, we stayed on the ground floor with two single beds. Here, I liked how they used the Capiz window frame as a headboard. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. Linen was soft and comfy and the toilet and bath were also very clean.
This was the second room where we stayed on the 2nd floor. You can also avail of an extra bed in the room if there are 3 or more guest in the room.
Casita Aurora bed and breakfast has three floors. One room and dining area
on the first floor.
There are 3 big rooms on the 2nd floor and on the 3rd level, their roof top offers a magnificent view of the famous Mt. Mayon volcano. An ideal place to just relax and enjoy while staring at beautiful Mayon volcano.
I also like the airy and spacious Casita Aurora. The big windows with Capiz frames and tinted glass reflecting against the light creates a vintage feel paired with beautiful vintage chandeliers and wooden chairs.
Next to Casita Aurora, you will find a beautiful house where the owner stays and
where breakfast is also prepared.
People say that you are lucky when you see Mt. Mayon volcano so clear as it is normally covered with clouds. So when we woke up, we had a nice brewed coffee and went straight up to the roof top. It was amazing to see this beautiful volcano from Casita Aurora. We were really lucky to find Casita Aurora!
Looking out of the window on the 2nd floor of Casita Aurora is another ideal spot for a selfie with those Capiz window frames and elegantly carved roofing.
On our last day, Martin and Elizabeth took us around their garden and showed us their different plants and herb collection that they sometimes use in their meals.
A group picture is a must with thier beatiful house in the background. Martin and Elizabeth are also marathoners and participated in the Mayon 360 Ultramarathon.
It was so nice of them to take us to the airport!
I really would like to thank Casita Aurora Bed and Breakfast for making our stay in Legazpi such a memorable one. It may not be as big as the others, but the comfort and homeliness we experienced at this place was something only few could offer or maybe something found only at Casita Aurora Bed and Breakfast.
I would also like to thank Martin and Elizabeth for making us feel at home during our stay. Thank you for taking us around the city, for inviting us to run with you both around the bay area, and to make us love Legazpi city even more.
You established a place that will make waves in Legazpi City and I am very privileged to have been able to stay at Casita Aurora.
Truly we CAME AS GUESTS, AND WE ALL LEFT AS FRIENDS!
