Vacation. Holiday. Getaway. A break. An Escape. Whatever people call it, it always seems to be the answer to any stressful situation.

The Locsins's (From L-R Ryan, Damien, Caleb and Felma)

Vacation. Holiday. Getaway. A break. An Escape. Whatever people call it, it always seems to be the answer to any stressful situation. Having to lay around, read a book, swim and get the R&R you’ve been fantasizing for weeks or even months is utter bliss when it becomes a reality. Getting rejuvenated and invigorated may sound out of reach when you’re just at home, but what if the vacation destination you’ve been daydreaming of is actually in your backyard?

On a hot summer day, we got the chance to chat with the Locsin family and we found out that their home actually feels like a resort within the city. They are, in many ways able to relax and leave life’s troubles whenever they please, without having to travel far or spend so much.

Ryan and Felma got married in Dumaguete City and was blessed with two boys, Damien and Caleb, aged 2 and 5 respectively. A couple of years back, the couple recalls that when they were thinking of buying a home, their primary consideration after location, was that the home should be place where they can relax and recharge. A place where they can after a stressful day at work spend quality time with their kids.

Since the Locsins moved in to their new home last 2017, they have never ran out of bonding activities, whether it is within their spacious two-bedroom unit or within the developments sprawling amenities. Felma shares that whenever they can, they spend time with the kids reading a book, cooking together or learning a new hobby. But what delights them the most is the change in their weekend habit having to live in their dream home.

Before, weekends are routinely spent going to the mall. Now, they opt to stay home, unwind and explore exciting activities they can do in the development’s outdoor amenities.

“We want to spend more time in the amenities,” shares Felma, citing the pool area as their favorite go-to spot, most specially this hot summer season.

“I don’t swim a lot, but the kids really enjoy every bit of it,” which to Felma is a very fulfilling experience, seeing her kids take pleasure in the home that she and her husband have meticulously  chosen.

Last Easter, Felma and Ryan excitedly shared that they did their own version of the Easter Egg Hunt at the landscaped area near the children’s playground. To them, it was a practical that yielded to a happy and memorable experience.

“In the past we used to go on staycations,“ booking hotels within the city so that the kids can swim and enjoy resort – hotel facilities, “but now we don’t anymore, as the amenities here at home and in most hotels in the metro, are the pretty much same,” says Ryan adding further that the cleanliness of amenities in there condo are very well maintained.

And because their home of choice is relatively close to their offices, the couple spend less time in traffic, which means they get to have dinner with the kids and have more time for themselves. They even get to squeeze in a couple of their personal activities before the day comes to an end. To work on their fitness, Felma and Ryan spend at least an hour in the gym. As Ryan uttered, “I like the gym. I like running the treadmill, doing pushups and lifting weights”.  Thelma on the other hand, enjoys running on the threadmill.

Felma also relishes in the fact their home choice allows them to accomplish their personal errands in matter of minutes as asupermarket, a pharmacy and a bank is just an elevator ride away. “You just need to go down at the ground floor, and there you will find the Robinsons Supermarket, South Star Drug, BDO, everything is very accessible.”

In addition to that, safety and security is a non-issue. Since Felma sometimes work the late shift as an Operations Manager, occasionally having to arrive home at wee hours, the fear of danger within the area does not seem to bother her at all. “It’s very safe. Sometimes I arrive 2-3am, the guards are there”. Safety systems are integrated in the vicinity such as security cameras. Security personnel are also on constant roam patrol for maximum protection.

You might ask yourself, is this for real? Can one’s home truly feel like the holiday you been longing for? The answer is, yes! With Acacia Escalades at Calle Industria you get to enjoy life’s pleasure with the family. This development by Robinsons Communities is another smart and reasonably priced investment choice. Its practical location puts neighboring business districts and commercial areas accessible. Well maintained outdoor amenities are also an exceptional addition to the vacation feeling that you once thought can only be attained by a hotel or resort accommodation. And the Locsin family has been reaping the benefits of being a unit owner.  In their one year and three months of stay at Acacia Escalades they can say that are very delighted. “We have no complains”, they both said. “Definitely an investment worth taking”. Acacia Escalades provides them perfect combination to make the hustle and bustle convenient for weekdays and rest and relaxation easily reached for weekends. Who needs a staycation elsewhere when your home already feels like a vacation?
