January is a perfect time to scout for property developments that are ideal for investment or a second home. With its cool climate throughout the year, Baguio City is an excellent location to consider having a vacation home.

Known as the Summer Capital of the Philippines, Baguio City is always a welcome respite from the lowlands’ heat and humidity. For me, weekends in Baguio also bring back childhood memories that include horseback riding at Wright Park and boat paddling at Burnham Park.

For those in the market for a cozy vacation condominium unit located at the heart of Baguio City, The Residences at Brent just held a groundbreaking ceremony for its fourth building, The Halsema Hall.


Willowtree Development Corp. has been successful in putting up the first three buildings which are surrounded by pine trees and nature trails.

Given the positive response on the first three buildings, the Halsema Hall was similarly designed to be a low-rise and low-density building. Units are spacious and well designed with a balance of luxury and comfort. Composed of only 22 units, only seven units remain available after the pre-selling stage.

Willowtree Development VP and treasurer Joaquin Buenaflor shared that the ceremony marks the continuing realization of a vision of a community that truly captures the unique Baguio experience. He led the groundbreaking ceremony with other company officials, including Ulysses Gaerlan, VP for marketing and sales.

Most Reverend Prime Bishop Joel Pachao of the Episcopal Church in the Philippines, and Brent International School Baguio Trustee Engr. Rufino Bomasang also graced the affair.

Residents, industry partners, city officials, and other stakeholders of the community likewise attended the momentous occasion. After the formal ceremonies, guests were treated to merienda treats and entertainment in an alfresco setting.

“The success that we have built on with the four current buildings is truly inspiring and we endeavor to sustain this and continue delivering the premium residential or vacation home,” shared Gaerlan.

The Residences at Brent is beyond compare as it underlines privacy and exclusivity.

Standing within the forested area of the Brent International School community, it provides residents with a scenic view of pine trees while enjoying the cool breeze. Truly, the community offers a unique Baguio experience.


The Baguio experience highlights the simple joys of enjoying the outdoors. It may be a family picnic or a leisurely walk amid the clean and fresh air.

It’s the kind of lifestyle wherein everything slows down for us to appreciate those that matter most, which is our family and loved ones.

At the Residences at Brent, nature-inspired amenities abound. Walking trails, pocket parks, picnic tables and bonfire areas encourage real family bonding. A healthy lifestyle is within reach with outdoor recreational facilities such as basketball courts and soccer field.

A chapel and a reflection center are likewise available for the spiritual benefit of the faithful. Security is a top priority as guards monitor the perimeter and CCTV cameras are installed in strategic areas, all of which compliment the gated community.

The Residences at Brent is located in an area that provides its residents with proximity to Baguio’s central business district and its many tourist attractions. The famous Session Road is only a few minutes ride or approximately 20 minutes on foot.

Other nearby tourist destinations include the Wright Park, The Mansion House, Burnham Park, and Camp John Hay.
