  • With all the clamor for life outside of the city, more and more Filipinos are looking for a slice of buhay probinsya. Take Evan Rey Luceño, a seafarer whose family invested in an eight-hectare property in Pangil, Laguna.

    The area, tucked away in a lush and hilly location, offers fantastic views of Laguna Lake, the Pililia windmills, and the nearby mountain range. "At first, we built this kubo as a family resthouse, but one time, pinost ko sa internet, maraming nagkakagusto at gustong mag-overnight," Rey tells the OG team.

    Today, the property, now called the Top Mount Farm, features not just one but five accommodations ready for the public.

    The kubo

     The base of the hut, originally intended to be the Luceño's resthouse, was made with concrete to prevent termite infestation,. Wood and bamboo, meanwhile, were used for the remainder of the house for that airy feel.

    The treehouse

    Built on the boughs of langka, santol, and mango trees, the treehouse can accommodate three people. Windows let wind and natural light in. Mattresses can be laid down on the floor at night. The treehouse also has a terrace for guests to appreciate the surrounding greenery.

    The tiny kubo

    Last but not the least is the tiny kubo, measuring 12 by 14 feet and made with amakan, concrete, and wood.

    Upstairs is a big bedroom, which can fit five people. As power lines have yet to be installed at the farm, the tiny kubo and the entire facility rely on solar power.
