Out of all the places in the world, this was the dirtiest of all. I went up 5 minutes, found blood on the sheets... more...

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.

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 Airport terminals:
Option 1 ) TAXIS from: NAIA 1( mostly Foreign International Airlines / Taxi Meter Fare P95), NAIA 2( mostly Philippine Airlines( Taxi P100), NAIA 3 (mostly Cebu Pacific Airlines & Discount airlines booked on-line / Taxi Fare P120 ) and NAIA 4 ( mostly AirAsia & Tiger Airlines) / Taxi Meter fare only P80) 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?

Option 2 ) walk outside NAIA 1 terminal to the right down the ramp to the small Roofed 'Bus' Stop or from NAIA 2 walk to the left and ask guards where to take the Jeepney 'MIA Terminal 1-2' sign on windshield or signage on side of the jeepney body 'Baclaran NAIA Domestic MIA' which also passes by NAIA 4 in front of termninal exit on 'Domestic Road' ( no signage ). the jeepney will turn left on Airport Road's round-a-bout go straight to first stoplight at Quirino Ave, turn left , go straight, pass a Petron Gas Station on the right ( get out on 2nd street to the right, Bayview Drive but no signage )and the former Pearl Plaza Mini-Mall large building to the left, then knock on jeepney ceiling say 'Para' meaning 'stop, I want out' at JB Store on corner with big CAMEL Sign, walk straight 2 blocks ( 300+ meters withOUT paying attention to the locals .FROM NAIA 3, walk out the Exit Door to the left straight ahead maybe 6 minutes and look for a Jeepney that Says Baclaran MRT LRT at left side of round-a-bout and get out at Stoplights Roxas Blvd & Airport Road, walk 1 km maybe 10 minutes up Roxas Blvd to your left to Villa Carolina Townhouse #31, passing Petron &Shell gas station on your left and City of Dreams Casino on the right It took me 36 minutes with a light daypack and I paid P7

I'm 61 years young and timed myself in the afternoon, it took me 18 minutes for P7.50 ( 16 cents U$ and 14 cents Euro$ ) from NAIA1 but of course I didn't have baggage or a backpack. You will see a group of Townhouses to the right, our Unit 11 with 6 fan cooled private rooms and our 6 bed dormitory with flags and our healthy mango tree in front, then 65 meters, half minute walk our main building's entrance in #31 where our check-in counter reception and 26 more private rooms and WiFi access are located. if nobody opens the front gate when arriving late Ring the Door Bell to the upper right side '
