Tagaytay, a city under the jurisdiction of the Cavite Province, and whose claim to fame lies on an active volcano and the lake that surrounds it some 2,000 feet below, is a popular weekend destination and vacation spot of many residents of Metro Manila. Thanks to its year-round cool weather and spectacular views, tourists and vacationers flock to this city on a regular basis to take advantage of its mountainous terrain, laidback ambiance, and lots and lots of quaint eateries and award-winning restaurants.
It is no wonder that the real estate market of the city is also one of the Philippines most buoyant. In fact, the city consistently tops lists of most popular locations for homebuyers. The city is also one of the most searched cities by property hunters based in the United States. The type that most property-hunters are looking for almost always are vacation homes.
As the city fills up with people during the weekends and long holidays, so too does its vacation houses and lodges scattered all throughout. In fact, many real estate investors do not buy houses here to actually live in, but rather go into the business of vacation rentals through a house for rent. Tagaytay properties as an investment promises good returns in the long run.
A Tagaytay house for rent - overnight or for multiple nights are most popular. Many of these homes offer views of Taal Lake and Volcano, including those found along Tagaytay–Calamba Road and Tagaytay–Nasugbu Highway. This makes them close to the city’s top attractions, including the Taal Vista Hotel and the SkyRanch. However, as expected, renting properties in these areas can be quite pricy.
For more affordable options, a Tagaytay house for rent situated in lesser known barangays also offer good deals. These areas include Barangay Maitim, areas along Aguinaldo Highway going to the town of Silang, and along Indang–Mendez Road. These locations have plenty of gated communities and subdivisions that offer not just houses, but also duplexes, row-houses or traditional Filipino apartments, and townhouses.
As one of the most competitive and economically vibrant cities in the Philippines, Tagaytay is no stranger to big-ticket real estate developments. It seems that after Tagaytay Highlands was built, other developers followed suit with their own vacation- and resort-inspired developments.
Included in these projects are Twin Lakes, touted as the Philippines’ very first residential and leisure development with an actual vineyard; Crosswinds, a Swiss Alps-inspired community; and Kasa Luntian, a low-density condo project with a particular emphasis on Filipino design and traditions.
