Let’s face it–everyone has got their stressful days. Whether it’s because of too much work at the office or studying non-stop at school, all sorts of people have the need to unplug and recharge for at least a weekend before getting back on the grind. And you don’t actually need to go on a full-blown vacation somewhere on a beach.

Whether you want to stay in the city or take a drive up to Tagaytay, Baguio, or to Subic, these reasonably-priced Airbnbs will give you the change of pace and scenery needed to lay back and relax. Plus, all of them have a homey vibe no 5-star hotel could ever pull off.
