Sa Kamp Maysawa, ‘di ka magsasawa!
If you’re looking for a breather, a getaway, or an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, then going to Kamp Maysawa is the way to go. This exclusive camp will allow you to detox yourself from all the stress caused by school, work, and social media. Let yourself loose once in a while, and enjoy the company of friends, family, and nature! You can experience this in Kamp Maysawa!
This cabin camp is located in Sitio Maysawa. This is the perfect spot to enjoy nature as it is surrounded by mountains and far away from the city. You can experience the perfect escape here. And don’t worry, there’s no signal here. Yup, you read that right. Experience being off-the-grid in this camp with no worries about being suddenly contacted for work or other stressful matters! You can fully enjoy your stay having your attention focused only on your friends, family, nature, and most importantly, yourself.
You’ll be staying in a very cosy cabin. The cabin itself does not have any windows and is open which means you’ll be able to appreciate more the fresh wind and sounds that nature has to offer. The cabin includes an indoor and outdoor living room area where you can hang out. The kitchen and the second-floor attic provide you with an amazing view which would also serve as your bedroom.
You can save some luggage space as the kitchen already comes fully equipped with kitchenware. You can cook either indoors on their gas stove or grill outdoors. You don’t have to worry about drinking water as well because it is also already provided by the owner!
The camp has a 4.5ft swimming pool, outdoor dipping tubs, and jacuzzies. What’s more, is that the water used in the swimming pool is from natural running fresh mountain spring water. So you can enjoy a nice cold or hot dip depending on which you prefer.
Hammocks are also everywhere. If you want to go nature viewing, have a nap, or just zone out, you know you want that hammock! I mean, who doesn’t enjoy a good hammock, right?
At night, you can huddle over a campfire and play some music. The owner also lets you borrow their guitar and bongo drums. Roast some marshmallows, have ice-cold drinks, and just spend the night away with laughter, music, and good food. Just mind your noise levels to not disturb other neighbours.
Something you also need to know is that the camp runs on battery and solar power, so lighting and electricity are limited, especially at night. You can still charge your phones with USB ports that they have in camp. For perishables and beverages, the camp provides an ice block and icebox.
