Casa Simeon has been a landmark in Bacacay for generations and this accommodation offers a continental or American breakfast. From the veranda of this old house, sitting on a rocking chair, you’ll get to enjoy the view of the famous Mayon Volcano. The Mayon Volcano in Bicol is best viewed from Cagsawa, Daraga, or Lignon Hill in Legazpi. It looks stunning from any angle, even from Bacacay, a sleepy coastal town less than an hour away from Albay’s city center.
An arquitectura mestiza family residence, it was built in the 1920s. This colonial home was recently converted into a well-appointed boutique hotel featuring modern conveniences blending well with traditional materials.
Rooms are rustic, spacious, and sparkling-clean. They are equipped with modern conveniences and hotel-grade amenities – comfortable large beds, air-conditioning, LCD TV and nice bathroom facilities. Most likely, guests would end up stay-cationing rather than exploring other points of interests within the vicinity.
MOVABLE & CUISINE-CULTURAL HERITAGE
One of the favorite part of the house though is the library and mini museum on the ground floor, the array of books and heirloom pieces impressively preserved by the family. On the second floor is Cucina Beatrice, a restaurant serving delectable Bicolano and fusion cuisine.
Their menu is inspired from family heirloom recipes passed from generation to generation. Try their grilled sandwich, Bicol express pasta and pandan chicken. Even their desserts – churros and leche flan – are faultless to cap off the meal. Their services also A+ with all their staff very kind and welcoming. The restaurant leads to a veranda with a beautiful view of Mayon – a perfect spot for siesta or magpatunaw after a hearty and satisfying meal.
Minute Walk Away: From the Casa is the Bacacay port – a nice place for strolling especially during dusk or sunset. You’ve love the simple life of the locals, who looks happy and contented just watching the glorious ending of the day.
