There’s a new place in Cagayan de Oro which will open soon to host special events like weddings, parties, reunions and meetings. CASA DE CANITOAN is targeted to be fully operational by September this year but is already accepting bookings for private photography sessions as well as special private events for the second half of August.

The venue is specifically located near the junction of Macapagal Drive and Canitoan-Pagatpat Road right beside the new Cooperative Development Authority (CDA) building. As shown in the map below, you cannot see the place from the road as it is interestingly buffered by a row of tall thickly vegetated trees. Just look for a pink waiting shed and the 30-meter access road leads you right to the front gate.

Up front is a short driveway and a small roundabout for vehicle drop-offs.

Do you see some rooftop solar panels?

The main building has two floors and an attic (3rd level).

The main function hall is at the ground floor. You can book it for P30,000 for 6 hours.

By the way, there’s no corkage so you can bring your own food or caterer.

Its pool is also mesmerizing with a small bridge. Bet you can’t wait to have a selfie.

It is only 4 feet deep.

…talk about instagrammable pool…

There are rules for the use of the pool.

Apart from the function halls, there are also accommodations on the second floor which is good for overnight events. There are only four rooms which can be booked together with your event. This one below is the largest room at P3,500/night.

You can also book accommodations at the place.

Rooms are fully air-conditioned.

It has its own balcony and comfort room.

A few prenup photo shoots have already been conducted at the place.

The other smaller rooms have a separate living area apart from the bedroom.

This is the common living area in the second floor near the hallway to the bedrooms.

This is the hallway to the bedrooms.

Here’s the view from the balcony of one of the rooms.

The net is for the leaves from the tree.

Its large lawn is just suitable for garden weddings and open air parties.

Construction actually started two years ago.

This annex is currently under construction and will provide have additional function rooms.

At the top of the annex building is a proposed bell tower.

This is the stairs to the attic.

This flight of stairs at the side of the building leads to the second floor.

The steps are short for easy access.

That’s the stairs at right.

The owner also lives at the house…so you can inquire directly.

Privacy is also one of its main points. The place is fully enclosed with CCTV cameras around the perimeter.

Here’s a view showing the pool and the bedrooms with balcony.

This bicycle can also be a good prop for your photoshoot.

There is limited parking inside the compound but parking space is also available outside the gate and another large lot beside CDA.

There are still a lot of small works inside but you can already book the site for private photo sessions.

It’s a home away from home…
