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.

2015 Update Take Note: A massive elevated bypass system is under construction and although I applaud their speedy progress it took 1-1/2 hours for me to drive home from NAIA 1; we can walk it in 30 minutes! Now flight arrivals at all 4 Manila airports are more confusing than ever with each terminal providing service to both domestic and international airlines.

Take Note: Use GrabTaxi with GPS and to Avoid being Over Charged. Our 24 Hour Airport Service in Blue Delica Van Temporarily Not Available due to our former driver, Robert has not returned from his province since the last major typhoon.

Manila has 4 Ninoy Aquino International Airports commonly referred to as, NAIA ( pronounced Nah EE AH ) NAIA 1( mostly Foreign International Airlines / Taxi Meter Fare P100 to P110), NAIA 2( mostly Philippine Airlines Taxi Fare 115 to P125 ), NAIA 3 (mostly Cebu Pacific Airlines & Discount airlines booked on-line / Taxi Fare P130 to P150 ) and NAIA 4 ( mostly AirAsia & Tiger Airlines) / Taxi Meter fare only P75 to P85) The Towhouse airport service when we hire a new driver is P180 / 1,2 or 3 persons, P250 /4, 5 or 6 persons from 6AM to 12 PM Midnight. Add P50 for our driver waking up between 12:01AM Midnight and 5:59AM.

Please Take Note: do not expect Manila taxi drivers to know where you are going as maybe 50% are from the provinces and the other 50% are from 1 of Metro-Manila's 16 cities so have little or no idea about the landmarks in the other 15 cities. Try to avoid taking parked taxis as they tend to waiting for a victim to over charge so take taxis in motion who tend to be more honest and too busy working honoring the taxi meter fare. Take my wife's advice: If taxi driver attempts to over charge you, upon arrival walk through our Townhouse hotel / Hostel Manila front entrance gate, lock it then hand the right payment listed above so the taxi can get angry instead of you and instruct him to go file a barangay complaint or to the police; what do you think the consequences will be when he complains saying I tried to over charge them for P500 and they refused to pay?

From all 4 airports, you tell the taxi driver to Roxas ( pronounced RO Hoss ) Blvd Bayview International Towers ,you're 1 minute away! Continue straight on Roxas 150 meters. Turn right on the first small street to #31 Bayview Drive. Look for our Townhouse Sign.
