With social distancing becoming a must in the new normal, a trip to the beach or a public resort has been much harder to organize than before. This made private stays more popular than ever, especially ones with private pools that you and your family and friends can enjoy all to yourselves. While there’s a lot of popular stays down south in Laguna or Batangas, there are rental homes with private pools in Bulacan that are nearer to those living in the north.
