Bed & Breakfast
All the Bed and Breakfast cottages are named after flowers and herbs, which, like her garden, reflect Sonya’s love for aromatic things. Inspired by her simple country lifestyle, the Bed and Breakfast facility was born out of insistent pleas from guests to stay awhile longer in Sonya’s private sanctuary.
Many guests have already vowed to return for the simple joys it offers, like waking up to the smell of flowers, languishing in bed from last night’s soothing massage, contemplating in the undisturbed solitude that surrounds each cottage, relaxing by the charming bay windows that open to a resplendent view of nature, enjoying the warm hospitality of Sonya and her staff—and other delightful discoveries that has made a stay at the B&B a unique experience for every person.
We do not have noisy air-conditioners or TV sets, but you’ll wake up to nature’s splendor in full view right outside your window. Breathe in FRESH, unpolluted air from the abundant trees that surround the property. Experience the serenity of country living. Just GET AWAY FROM IT ALL! This is the perfect moment to yield to the simple joys of life… and practice the ART OF DOING NOTHING.

The B&B has welcomed all sorts of people into its uniquely styled cottages—from the tired urbanite just longing for an escape from the city to the couple on their nth honeymoon, the traveler searching for a different kind of journey, the balikbayan who’s just glad to be home, and the curious who is perpetually intrigued by how Sonya’s lives out her philosophy of “the art of doing nothing”.
There is something special here for every kind of guest to discover and relish.
The best time to go
The B&B has become a popular destination for a romantic getaway. One of the best times to spend the night at Sonya’s is during the hushed nights at the beginning of the week, when the garden is quiet save for the crickets and their song, or the soft tinkling of glass chimes that signals the passing of breeze. The damp months of June to October lure the romantic with the murmur of falling rain and the resulting sparkle of a dew-draped garden.
There is something powerful yet ineffable about Sonya’s B&B that it has drawn families together for reunions, inspired bonding sessions among friends, even lured colleagues to conduct teambuilding activities here. Here, guests have rediscovered the lost “art of conversation”. Perhaps it transports people to simpler times, when long conversations where more necessary than television, when time was a necessity rather than a luxury.
The Art Of Doing Nothing
For those who want to renew their inner selves, there are therapeutic and creative activities to experience. When she is available, Sonya herself conducts a yoga class for beginners to set the mood for a surreal restorative experience. These are only a handful of ways that guests of Sonya can experience a nourishment of body and soul at the B&B. The possibilities are endless.
FREE ART OF DOING NOTHING LESSONS:
Basic Gardening, Compost Making, Plant Propagation, Firefly watching (during mating season), Walking, Trekking, Tour of the Scented Greenhouse and Edible Landscape Gardens, Early morning meditation (inhalation of fresh unpolluted air & exhalation of carbon dioxide) and yoga for beginners (oxygen)
