More of the Heart in Batangas

As promised, here's the continuation of my post for Casa Corazon.

Casa Corazon is more than a resort away from the city. It has an ancestral home, aviary and surprisingly, a car and motorbike museum. Nature, vintage stuff and those toys for the big boys? It doesn't sound like the ideal collections that match, but Casa Corazon made it happen. The pictures will tell you what to expect in Casa Corazon.

Casa Corazon has an extended and well-maintained garden.  

One thing we noticed about Casa Corazon is the well maintained lawns and trimmed plants. It looks like each plant is given its own regular hair cut. :-)

Can you see the houses that enclose the garden? Each house contains the owner's marvelous collections. The next pictures will give your eyes a treat of the owner's EXPENSIVE collections.
This was already enough to mesmerize me. 

The room is quite big but it tends to look smaller because of the owner's overflowing collections.

Aside from motorbikes, the owner has other interesting pieces too
An old candy machine!

On the second house, another set of collections amazed us

Even the floor has a theme.
 Were you already amazed? There's more to come! Take a look at the next photos

Woot! Woot! Look what do we have here.

A room full of BMW bikes! According to some of my reliable male colleagues, some of the bikes existed even before WWII. How about that? 

This BMW with side car existed way before my parents were born.

The fact that it's BMW, it's already expensive. I can imagine the thousands to millions of money spent to transport this piece of priceless treasure here.

I've never seen a BMW in orange.

Hey handsome! Haha

Wish I have male readers who can better explain these expensive bikes

Bike overload? We're not done yet. Let's move on to the vintage cars.

 Again, I don't have any idea about each piece haha

The second floor features different sports equipments and

 another breathtaking view.
Still part of the owner's property, how about that?

I thought Casa Corazon ends in these garden and museum. There's another gate that led us to another surprise.
Can you see the mansion up there? I believe this is where the owner usually stays.

On the right side of the gate is this man made waterfall and pond

The gate will lead you to a long trail.
This photo is from Casa Corazon's site
The trail ends in a hill that provides a spectacular view of the owner's property and the shores of Batangas.

Would you like to own and spent your retirement years to this place?

Casa Corazon also boasts its own aviary. However, I failed to take decent photos of the owner's rare collection. I had issues with the wire of their cages. Hence, these lousy pictures.

That's it for my blog post for Casa Corazon.

Hopefully, I'll discover another place away from the city. Till my next travel adventure :-)
