Last February 24, 2020, I celebrated my birthday. And to end my birthday week, Zoe and I had a birthday staycation at Madeline’s Ville. It’s a newly opened Bed and Breakfast in Alfonso. With a unique concept and design of their Tiny Homes.
So today, let me share our experience. Zoe is so happy and excited to spend the night in our unit. We stay at their Sunshine unit. Zoe told me that the unit lolls like a real-life dollhouse. She feels like she’s a doll and asked me “mom, how come it looks like a dollhouse but we can fit inside?”. I want our own tiny house as well! Oh, my daughter really loved the place.
Madeline’s Ville is tiny homes enclave with the full amenities of a house. The place is so relaxing communing to nature a great place for the family to have breakfast and make more memorable times together. That’s why they encourage everyone to personally cook their meals and bond over food. So be sure to bring your own food. There is a griller available, no corkage fee, complete utensils from plates to pots and there are an outdoor kitchen and a 12 seater dining table.
There is a dangle zone to relax and hang around as well. Zoe and I love the colorful chairs as well in front of the house. And for the fur parents, Madeline’s Ville is pet-friendly. You can bring them inside the unit too! For more photos just go here.
I was lucky to be able to personally meet the owner, Sir Ariel Villegas. So let me tell you the story behind Madeline’s Ville.
I asked Sir Ariel his inspiration behind Madeline’s Ville. He told me it was actually both their childhood dream. While Madeline is the name of their only daughter.
He and his wife dreamed of a home away from the city. With free-range chicken, cow, goat, vegetable garden around to keep them busy. In God’s grace, their retirement tiny home will rise soon on the same premise.
They are planning to build a small swimming pool and 2 more units hopefully just in time for this summer. So stay tuned for that!
And would you believe that Sir Ariel is the one who designed all the interior, furnishing and even personally handcrafted some pieces of furnitures? Yes, it’s true. Of course, his wife and daughter gave a helping hand as well.

Will I recommend Madeline’s Ville? Absolutely! The place is perfect for couples who want to reconnect with each other, or for parents who want some me time away from the kids, for single moms like me who wish for a time out and just read a book and it is even perfect for families who just want to enjoy while making memories together.
The only problem I personally encounter is that I wasn’t able to charge my laptop nor my phone. Good thing I have my powerbank. I was planning to edit so I can upload right away but when I tried to plug my charger, the power went off. So, I didn’t want to take the risk again to plug anything. But the outlet works fine when I used the appliances inside the unit. Also, the light in the comfort room flickered when I opened the shower. So I just turned it off. Also, take note that there is not much signal in the area. Perfect timing for you to read a book. So make sure to bring one!
Overall experience, Zoe and I had so much fun. We cooked together, we played games, we read, we enjoyed our own “me time”, we were able to recharge and reconnect. Zoe until now can’t stop sharing her experience and bugging me that she wants to live in a tiny house like that. Ate Lala and Kuya Dodong the caretakers are happy to help us and even gave us tilapia for dinner.
I just want to personally thank Sir Ariel and his wife for having us. Thank you for opening and sharing your place. Till next time!
