For the longest time, my good friend Leehua has been inviting me to this place (in Pagudpud) called Casa Consuelo. She’s also a very busy person, so it was hard scheduling this staycation. While I was absolutely clueless about the casa, I packed my bag and when she picked me up at my home, I also didn’t know we were bringing along her friend Vivian… three’s company:)
The biggest surprise of all — Casa Consuelo is located right infront of Dos Hermanos near the end of the road going to Blue Lagoon. I got stoked while we were still entering the gate, I kept on thanking Leehua. Omg, and another surprise! The casa is owned by Armi Tamayo, an old friend who also happens to be an old friend of my mom. Richard, who’s the manager, took good care of us while the mom is still in Laoag. Soon after showing me around, he got us to trek to this idyllic hill overlooking the Blue Lagoon. The setting sun made the mood all the more dramatic.
“We give you your own space,” answers Richard when I asked him what sets Casa Consuelo apart. By the way, it’s not a resort, but a homestay. And it’s the best ever homestay in the Blue Lagoon area, spot on! I felt like we were the only people on a secluded island. I congratulated him for having a most ideal location.
We had delicious homestyle gamet (nori) omelet, poque-poque and bagnet for dinner before strolling to the neighboring big resort under the pale moon light, hahah, like hopping to the island city with bright lights.
Back to our dim-litted little casa… took a nice hot shower before curling up in bed. The sound of the ocean was my Celtic harp music for the night.
I divided this feature into two parts. With a gorgeous place like Casa Consuelo, one can become shutter happy. Here is waking up to a breathtaking sunrise in Casa Consuelo.
