Something funny happened to me yesterday. :)
So off we went to our final stop. Mountain Haven. -
How To Go There:
It's about 45mins ride from downtown Davao, so it's better if you bring your own car. Taxi would be very expensive specially if you let them wait. If you're planning of a family holiday, I would suggest that you rent a van. The rent is only P2,500.00 per day.
Where To Stay:
There are 2 choices. One is Loleng's . It was named after the owner Dolores P. Torres. Their family owns University of Mindanao , WT FM and a local radio station called DXUM, among other things.
I like their cottages because they're more spacious. They have a swimming pool and a boating area. Their restaurant is on top so you get a view of Davao City and Samal Island, while relaxing and dining. :) I love their grilled liempo there! Not so healthy huh? lol .. But then again, life is short. So why not? haha

Entrance Fee: Php80 per head Cottage Cost: P2,500.00 per night Food: prices vary per order
( food is good!)
I would upload more pictures if I could. But when John's hard drive crashed, I lost my photo collections. We learned a valuable lesson that day. Save your pictures in 2 different hard drives! And save it online as well...
The other Resort is called Eden Nature Park. What I like about their cottages is that their porch/terrace has screens. So you can hang out as long as you want outdoor and not worry about mosquito or bug bites.
And then they have buffet. :) Breakfast, lunch or dinner. So you won't get hungry. I didn't! LOL They serve salad which were freshly picked from their garden. It's organic so for those who are health buffs, you'll love it... There are so many options so you just choose from the buffet table. You can't go wrong because everything tastes good. :)
Entrance Fee : P180 per head (with merienda - plated)
P480 per head (with buffet lunch/dinner)
Cottage Cost: P2,500.00 per night (check with www.agoda.com - they have offers from time to
time, for cheaper prices)
THINGS TO DO:
Ahh... this is going to be a long list. :)
a) Fishing - my most favorite. Their pond is filled with Tilapia and Hito. I don't eat those. But I
don't care. haha... And so I fish! And scream with excitement. And fish some more!
Entrance Fee: Php55.00
Cost of Tilapia and Hito per kilo: Php180.00
b) Resort Tour - I love this too! The view is breath taking. Plus you get to commune with nature and smell the flowers and the herbs from their garden.
Shuttle Fee: P100.00 per head
3. Adventure :
Indiana Jones - I don't know why it's called like that. But I'll have the pictures speak for
Horse Back Riding:
I will never be an equestrienne. But no one can stop me from having fun. As in, trying hard
Eden has a zipline also, for those who want extreme adventure. Maybe, one day I will have the guts to try it. :) They also have a swimming pool, but since the temperature is very cool, you might not like it. I also love their bird and butterfly sanctuary.
Other Interesting Things:
We usually stop at this store on the way home to buy fresh fruits and vegetables. :)
We, Davaoenos, are so lucky. We are blessed with cool mountain resorts. And then if we want to go to the beach, we just pack our things and head towards Samal island.. :)
I'll share about that next time... Hope you enjoy my ramblings! hehe
