The Astley Residence is located in a secure rural sub-division in the Sierra Madre hills to the east of Metro Manila, offering guests spectacular views of the city.

Two guest rooms with private bathrooms are furnished to 4-star hotel quality with air-conditioning, mini-bar, wi-fi and private patio. An excellent breakfast is included in room rate. This listing is for the room with a Queen bed.

Perfect for couples who want a quiet few days away without having to travel a long way from the city.

Le logement
*****IMPORTANT NOTICE: During the current Covid-19 pandemic we can only operate at 50% capacity (unless it is a family booking both rooms) to ensure your health and safety and that of our staff. As Timberland Heights is currently a Covid-free zone, and is a private sub-division, the township administration requires that all guests have barangay health certificates (not more than two weeks old as at arrival date) and provide a waiver letter absolving Timberland and Filinvest Land Inc from any responsibility should a guest contract Covid-19 whilst staying at Timberland (we will provide a draft upon booking). Negative PCR or rapid antigen test certificates can be accepted by Timberland Admin in lieu of barangay health certificates. Further, we can also only accept bookings from guests with their own transport because Grab and taxis are not available from Timberland, and there is no alternative public transport. In order to comply with health and safety regulations, our helpers will wear masks when checking you in and when serving breakfast. We would request guests to also wear masks when checking in and checking out, but they can removed for the rest of the stay. As we have to deep clean and sanitize the whole house between bookings, and can only operate at 50% capacity, we regret that we have to limit bookings during this pandemic to a minimum of two nights. However, during this period you will be the only guests at The Astley Residence so will have the house to yourself. We will revert to single night bookings when quarantine restrictions are lifted. Also, we are not able to accept same-day bookings because under the new safety protocols, we are required to register incoming guests with Timberland Admin and lodge their health certificates and waiver letter at least 24 hours prior to their arrival.*****

The Astley Residence at Timberland Heights was designed by one of the Philippines’ leading architects, Francisco Mañosa. It is situated on a ridge with 270-degree views of the whole of Metro Manila and the adjacent Sierra Madre foothills. On clear days the view is as far south as the Tagaytay Highlands, and as far west as Mt Mariveles on the other side of Manila Bay.

The sunsets are spectacular throughout much of the year, and the temperature at Timberland Heights is 2-3 degrees cooler than in the city. A gentle breeze on most days can make it feel even cooler, and a jacket or sweater is often required outside on evenings in December and January.

At night, the lights of the city’s 12 million inhabitants extend as far as the eye can see. We have had many guests stay with us who have described the evening and night-time vistas as “magical”.

Our house is located at about 1,000 ft above sea level, which means we are well above the level of the city’s air pollution (which we can often see extending up to about 600 ft after the morning rush hour). The prevailing winds come from the Sierra Madre ranges behind us, so we have a constant supply of fresh, unpolluted air from the mountains behind us.

Our two guest rooms are furnished to the standard of a four-star hotel with high quality beds and linen, split-system air-conditioning (not always needed at Timberland), ceiling fan, hair dryer, a well-stocked bar fridge, free tea and coffee making facilities, a large desk with a comfortable seat, a large closet with lots of hanging space and drawers and full length mirror sliding doors, a small library of books, and 24-hour intercom to the resident helpers.

The ensuite bathrooms feature high quality imported Grohe fittings with a proper shower (not plug-in wall type) and Roca basin and WC.

This listing is for the 28 sq m Sunset Room which has a magnificent view over the whole of Metro Manila. It sleeps two on an imported (made in UK) medium-firm Queen-size Slumberland Posture Spring quilted mattress on a Posture Spring divan base to provide maximum sleeping comfort.

For guests who may prefer two single beds, please see our separate listing for the slightly smaller Garden Room which is titled "Timberland Heights: Quiet Retreat in Hilltop Home".

Each room has a private terrace with two Adirondack chairs and a traditional rattan hammock from where guests can view the sunsets or relax in the cool evening breezes.

The entrance to each room is from an outside gallery overlooking Metro Manila. The private patios can be accessed from the guest rooms through glass sliding doors, which have full-size insect screens, enabling guests to enjoy fresh air whilst they are in the room.

Smoking is permitted on the outdoor patios (ashtrays provided) but not inside the rooms.

Check-out time is 12 noon but if the room is not booked for the night of the day you leave, you can check-out as late as 3pm for no additional charge. Check-in time is 2pm, but if the room has not been booked the previous night, you may check in any time after 11 am.

Breakfast for two people is included in the room rate. We offer two alternatives – a cooked American breakfast or a tradional Filipino breakfast. All breakfasts are served with juice and freshly brewed coffee or tea. Chinese tea is also available on request.

For dinner we recommend Estancia de Lorenzo at the bottom of the hill (there are no restaurants at Timberland) or you can bring your own food and reheat in our microwave. Guests can use our refrigerator in the upstairs kitchen next to the view deck.

Please note that due to our elevated location and unfenced steep slopes close to the guest rooms, our house is NOT suitable for children under 10 years of age.

We can accommodate one additional person per room on a floor mattress. For an additional adult or teenage child in the room there is a charge of Php700 which includes an additional breakfast (that amount is automatically added by AIrbnb when the booking is made for three guests). Maximum occupancy per room is strictly three.

We will provide directions prior to your arrival.

Accès des voyageurs
The guest rooms have their own keyed private entrances, enabling guests to come and go as they please. As well as the entry gallery and private patios provided for each guest room, our guests are welcome to use the bahay kubo in our 3,200 sq m garden

Autres remarques
We do not permit karaoke in order not to disturb neighbors at Timberland who live here because of the peace and quiet that we enjoy in the hills.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Please note that the Timberland Sports & Nature Club is closed for renovations until the first half of 2021. Therefore there are no pool, spa or restaurant facilities at Timberland Heights currently. The nearest spa and restaurants are at Estancia de Lorenzo at the bottom of the hill.

Please also note that Timberland Heights is a private residential sub-division. We are therefore only able to accommodate registered guests who are staying overnight. We are not able to host prenup photo shoots, wedding preparations, etc.

Timberland Heights is a Filinvest Premiere private sub-division with gated residential farm estates and 24-hour security.
