THE ASTLEY RESIDENCE
Bed & Breakfast
The Astley Residence is located at Timberland Heights, a secure private sub-division 1000 ft above sea level, in the hills east of Metro Manila, Philippines. The property overlooks the whole of the city and provides spectacular views of the metropolis as well as the surrounding hills. Timberland Heights is 2-3 degrees cooler than Metro Manila with fresh air blowing in from the Sierra Madre range most of the year.
The property is ideally located for staycations near Manila without battling traffic to Tagaytay, and much quieter than Antipolo. At night the lights of the city and the stars in the sky, and the feeling of being close to nature, make chilling out on our view deck or guest patios a relaxing and de-stressing experience that is hard to match so close to Metro Manila.
Room rates include a choice of a traditional Filipino breakfast or a full American breakfast served on our view deck

It's so peaceful. We loved listening to the crickets at night and waking up to the sound of the birds in the morning."
