There are also a lot of fast food stores and dining areas along the highway on the way to Pawikan.

Is it senior citizen-friendly in terms of walkability?

Clarinda’s main house has five steps above ground level. The hanging room though, has definitely more steps. The eating area in the videoke machine hut is right beside the pool. Also on ground level are the grill, swing, and outdoor shower.

Dolores’ three rooms are just a step up from the ground level. The same goes for the kitchen, grill, eating area, comfort room, and the videoke machine.

We’re planning to commute. How do we get to Pawikan via public transport?

The easiest, and usual, way would be to ride any Sta. Cruz, Laguna-bound bus. Tell the driver/ conductor that you’ll be going down near Barretto Elementary School. Pawikan is located on the next corner, along the highway. The street sign is reflectorized so you’ll see it, even at night.

We recommend the HM Bus Transport, which terminal is in Cubao, Edsa. Their buses leave for Sta. Cruz every hour. Rate is Php98, one way.

What are the amenities, services, appliances we can avail of?

RATE IS ALL-INCLUSIVE: Unlimited Videoke, Billiards, WiFi, Ref, Grill, Gas Stove, Dispenser with one 5-gal water, Basic Cooking Utensils, Eating Utensils, Blankets, and Beddings for 20 pax
