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.





Our rooms are furnished to 4-star hotel standard with air-conditioning, ceiling fans, mini-bar, and their own ensuite bathrooms.





Room rates include a choice of Filipino breakfast, American breakfast or a healthy option 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."

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Due to the Metro Manila lockdown (community COVID-19 quarantine measures) it is not possible for most guests to reach us from outside San Mateo or Rodriguez until after April 14 (subject to no extension of the lockdown period) as access to San Mateo is through either Marikina or Quezon City. However, we ARE accessible to guests living in Antipolo or anywhere south of Manila that does not involve travelling through the NCR if they have an SUV, 4WD or other type of vehicle with a high wheelbase. There is a back gate to Timberland from Antipolo, but 1.6 km of the road is very rough and suitable only for high wheelbase vehicles. Guests who wish to access Timberland from that direction will need to give us at least 24 hours notice as we need to make special arrangements for guests to enter through the back gate.
