The Townhouse was opened by Bill and Lorna as a hobby, after they had traveled, worked and were lucky with business in Asia, Europe, and the U.S.A. for almost ten years. They'd stayed in bamboo, beach huts, Asian guesthouses, Spanish pensionnes, American and European campgrounds, backpacker dorms.

MANILA ARRIVAL: Usually we advise our guests to take one of the Taxi / Transport services which is after immigration and customs and just outside the Ninoy Aquino International Airport ( NAIA ).
1. Outside of Ninoy Aquino International Airport Road( NAIA Road ), after the second set of sliding glass doors, look to the LEFT for a transport booth with metered taxis lined up ( in a queu )
Don't go RIGHT, they try to RENT you a car with driver P500++.
At the NISSAN Taxi Kiosk, give our address:
Villa Carolina Townhouse, # 31 Bayview Drive & Manila Bay's coconut palm tree lines ROXAS BLVD Tambo, Paranaque, Manila. This is 10 to 20 minutes from all 4 airport terminals and ONE MINUTE from Bayview Towers.
Stress 'Tambo' so they know the location is near the airport. You will be given a receipt which you must sign when you arrive at The Townhouse Hostel / Hotel!
OR From all 4 airports, you tell the taxi driver to follow NAIA Road & turn RIGHT on ROXAS BLVD until Bayview Towers is on your right. You're 1 minute away!
Continue straight on Roxas 150 meters. Turn RIGHT on the FIRST small street, BAYVIEW DRIVE. The Townhouse is 30 meters ahead on your left. WELCOME 'HOME' !!
OR - You can use our TOWNHOUSE AIRPORT SERVICE: We' ve had problems meeting new arrivals at the International Airport ( NAIA ) because of its design but if Bill or Lorna are at home we are more than happy to pick you up at the ARRIVAL EXTENSION AREA . If we're not home call to request our driver to pick you up or please follow the directions above.
1. Change a little money inside the airport be sure and ask for small change in P1 peso coins for the phone. Okay?
2. When you first go outside the airport you can NOT see this area. You go through the second set of sliding glass doors and see a 4+ lane road with a dividing island. Whether you exit on the right or the left move toward the center and walk across the 4 lanes ,proceed downward, turn left or right continue downward on the sloping ramp.
We're only 1-1/2 miles ( 2.6 KM ) away but with the traffic it should take 10 -20 minutes depending on traffic. Look for a Medium Blue Honda Civic or Medium Blue Delica 7 Passenger Van. We charge P120 to P160 for 1 to 6 persons.
1.5 to 2.5 miles ( 2.6 to 4km ) ,10 to 20 Minutes from all 4 Manila Airport Terminals, NAIA 1 International, Centennial 2 Philippine Airlines' domestic and International, the Domestic airport ( SEAIR & Zest Airlines ) and the Newest NAIA 3 INT & Domestic ( Cebu Pacific Airlines ) with easy access to mass transportation like jeepneys, buses, light rail transit ( LRT & MRT ), private taxis, and share / metered taxis 24 hours, 7 days a week.
