Fresh air and nature views — doesn’t this sound like paradise amidst all the troubling news?

We’ve got you covered, too. Below, we’ve handpicked some of the best Airbnb homes and vacation rentals to book in Bataan, ranging from beachfront cottages to quiet homes surrounded by lush greenery.

We’re certain you’ll feel right at home in this three-storey house, a lovingly curated abode located in Menara Point South Residential Area. At Balê Aida, you’ll get to enjoy the house’s cosy ambience, the fresh Camaya sea breeze, and stunning panoramic views of the surrounding areas.

7. This hideaway with some of the most stunning Bataan views
Located on the same property as the previously mentioned native home, this modern room can be rented on its own; alternatively, you can also book both listings and enjoy the entire property to yourselves. When you book this particular stay, you’ll also get access to a pool and a relaxing terrace, which we hear offers some of the most amazing views of the surrounding area!
