t's no secret that one will have a difficult time seeing the stars from any given point in Metro Manila. One must only, well, look up. One of the reasons citizens of the Metro yearn for escape and travel is to be able to be reunited with the openness of nature, to be able to look up at the sky and not feel the weight of the world on one's shoulders. Luckily, this October, a Bulacan villa is opening its doors on Airbnb and giving you the chance to live among the stars, in a manner of speaking.
Located in Calumpit, Bulacan, the River Garden Rest House is actress Marjorie Barretto's over-20-year home project in the making. Only, the villa isn't a luxury for just her family to enjoy, as it's now available for booking on Airbnb on three exclusive dates in October; October 15, 22, and 29.
Guests interested in booking a stay at the riverside villa can book now on Airbnb. Located an hour's drive from Manila, the River Garden Rest House accommodates four bedrooms and features a private pool, outdoor kitchen and dining areas, and a gazebo that overlooks Angat River. Rates start at P25,000 for the night.
Additionally, there's the teensy detail that Marjorie and her daughter Julia Barretto will be hosting the first guests on October 15 by giving them a tour of the villa and sharing their experiences of the home and other nearby spots to visit.

The Bulacan house is only a 30-minute to 1-hour drive via NLEX.
The four bedrooms at the villa are each named after a flower. The Sampaguita Room is the master suite, while the Santan Room comes with a view of Angat River. Together, the rooms accommodate a total of 15 pax.
You’ll find the family's collection of antique chairs, tables, jars, and paintings at the villa.
Dare we say, it's beauty-pool.
The River Garden Rest House is along Pulilan Regional Road, Barangay Pungo, Calumpit, Bulacan. Rates start at P25,000. For more information, visit River Garden Rest House on Airbnb.
