A sprawling space can encourage one to go out of his comfort zone and through the front door to appreciate the blue skies, the cool breeze, and the picturesque view.

With their hectic schedules, celebrities like Manny and Cynthia Villar, Bea Alonzo, Pauleen Luna, Manny and Jinkee Pacquiao, Marvin Agustin, and Eddie Gutierrez and Annabelle Rama can also benefit from the peace and tranquility that comes from having flourishing outdoor spaces.  

Bea Alonzo
The Kapamilya actress lives in a three-storey home designed by Jeizele delos Reyes-Go. One of the most appealing parts of the property is a swimming pool on a well-manicured lawn.

The cabana by the pool serves as the perfect spot for resting and relaxing. Bea’s friends and relatives can also enjoy a few refreshing drinks here.

Pauleen Luna
Located on the second floor of Pauleen’s family home in Quezon City, the swimming pool is on the same level as the living room, dining room, and kitchen. The swimming pool is 10 meters long and 3.5 meters wide. Its deepest point is only 6-feet-deep.

Manny and Jinkee Pacquiao
The swimming pool is surrounded with a lawn covered in carabao grass and Japanese bamboo. To provide ample seating for parties and get-togethers, the outdoor space is filled with wooden furniture upholstered with crisp white fabric.

Marvin Agustin
Marvin upgraded the pool by installing a lighting system that projects 5 different colors and has 7 color-show settings. The pool is completed with a diving board and a pool ball and it is surrounded with comfortable lounge chairs. Garden lights and a bamboo fence enhance the relaxed vibe of the outdoor space.

Annabelle Rama and Eddie Gutierrez
The rectangular swimming pool is 3.5 to 5.5 feet deep. It used to be deeper, but Annabelle and Eddie requested that it be made shallower. This would make it better for their grandchildren, including Lorin, Venice, and Zion.


Manny Villar
In 2008, renowned interior designers Ivy and Cynthia Almario headed the latest eight-month renovation process to turn Manny and Cynthia Villar’s house into an Asian Tropical home. Stone-lined pathways cut through the green lawn and lead to the swimming pool.

Ogie Alcasid and Regine Velasquez
Designed by architect Anthony Nazareno and interior designers Ivy and Cynthia Almario, this picturesque family home built on top of a hill in an exclusive subdivision offers scenic views. Aside from serving as a hideaway, it's also airy and spacious—with a clean aesthetic that's completed with notable pieces by renowned designers like Ann Pamintuan and Kenneth Cobonpue.

Willie Revillame
To say that the host's home is impressive would be an understatement. It will remind you of resorts you often see on TV and in magazines—with its beautiful structure, envy-worthy outdoor area, and spaces that seem to invite you to relax and unwind.

Boy Abunda
TV host Boy Abunda's bean-shaped swimming pool got its shape because he didn't want to temper with the natural landscape of the surrounders. Instead, the pool followed the shape between grown bushes that were already there prior to construction.

Lani and Bong Revilla
The entire area surrounding the old pool was landscaped with new plants and huge slabs of garden rocks, and a cascading waterfall was added to the pool.

Pops Fernandez
Back in 2002, Pops Fernandez redid the Ayala Alabang home she used to share with former husband Martin Nievera. She renovated the outdoor area, including the pool. 

John Lloyd Cruz
The swimming pool wasn't part of the initial plans for the actor's family home. However, he changed his mind when construction began. As advised by a Feng shui expert, an infinity sign was placed on the tiled flooring. It is believed that the sign will counter bad luck.
