Summer Score, Forest Cove

So where did we go this summer?  The beach, of course.  We're easy. 
But, with the aid of my incredible vacation planning prowess and immeasurable love for discounts and freebies, a simple beach trip transformed into an all-in-one luxury trip.  Well, semi-luxury.  Like I said, we're easy.

Forest Cove by day.
Forest Cove by night.
We went to Forest Cove, a lovely glass beach house in Nasugbu, Batangas. 

Possibly the only beach house with this pretty a complete kitchen set-up...

... and the most comfortable beds of the expensive goosedown sort. 

It came with the usual resort amenities.  Spectacular view, banana boat, jet ski, henna tattooes, and island hopping boat adventures in brand new, quality life vests.  None of those beat-up, orange wrap-arounds.

The gold mine is that it also came with a pass to next door exclusive, ultra swanky Terrazas de Punta Fuego!  SCORE!  You can get the pass discounted or for free.  Guess how I got ours?  Hehe...

You see?  That ultimate vacation is all in the meticulous researching and the insatiable hunger for value for money.  For this crafty mom anyway. :)
Summer's not over yet.  Why not give Forest Cove a try?

    1. Oh cool, Gab! Have fun! Take lots of photos. The islands are so photo-worthy. :)

  2. Hi there.... love your blog. Can you please tell me how you were able to get pass access to Terrazas de Punta Fuego? Thanks!

    1. Thanks, Joan! It was peak season and the resort offered the pass as one of its perks. I'm not sure of it's available during off season though. You should talk to the owner. Nice guy. :)

  3. I thought eto yung pinalit nyo sa Calatagan Resort (Banak). Di naman di ba?
