We have always loved going on an adventure even for a short while to refresh ourselves from a week of overthinking and manila traffic.

As we were looking for another unique place to stay, experience and share with you guys, Subic came to our mind. We haven’t really explored Subic, neither had a staycation on it.

To give you a brief introduction on where and what Subic Bay is, it is located in the province of Zambales (Philippines). Surrounded by Rainforest and Beaches, Subic offers a variety of eco-friendly activities that most nature lovers will enjoy. Subic is a 2-3 hour drive from EDSA-Cubao which is a good option to have a quick 1 to 2 days getaway with your friends or family.

Zen Surf Den is one of the few nature inspired AIRBNB accommodations in Subic Bay Freeport Zone. The place offers a quiet and peaceful nature-inspired AIRBNB staycation (for 2 to 4 pax) that are perfect for those who wanted to have a quick nature getaway from the crowded city. It is located close to famous Subic Tourist spots (local beaches and waterfall) as well as mini marts making it a convenient place to stay with your friends or family for the weekend.

It is run by an AIRBNB Superhost “Corey” – an active environmentalist and Australian yoga teacher whom unfortunately, we were not able to meet during our stay due to his work BUT still made sure to answer all our queries throughout which is definitely a BIG PLUS when staying in an AIRBNB. He even allowed us to check out a little late than what was listed in the AIRBNB.

WHAT’S INSIDE ZEN SURF DEN SUBIC

During check in, you will be welcomed by their accommodating house managers either Ate Violet or Ate Jheng (sometimes even the cute dogs welcome you hehe). The kitchen is located just outside of the unit and enclosed with steel gate to avoid the monkeys from entering the space especially when cooking meals.

Just beside the kitchen, separated with a glass sliding door, are the actual bedroom for 2 to 4 pax and a bathroom (naturally-lighted).
