Before my youngest daughter was born, we had a family get-away at Xavier Estates, Cagayan de Oro City. Although we live in this city, it was also nice to experience rest and relaxation once in awhile. We wanted to go back to this beautiful place again and bring baby Zoe with us.

Xavier Sports and Country Club (or Xavier Estates for short) is located at Airport Road and is just a 5-minute drive at the city’s domestic airport and 15 minutes away from downtown area. It has nearby schools, mall, church, gasoline station and golf course. You can ride a taxi going there or a jeepney or you can rent a car to explore the city’s best. While you are at the club, you can enjoy availing their amenities like swimming at the pool, play bowling, etc. You can see the panoramic view of Cagayan de Oro like the Macajalar Bay and CDO river.
Today’s my mother-in-law’s birthday. She was planning last time to spend her birthday this weekend at Apple Tree Resort. She wants to get 3 rooms so that we can stay overnight in there along with my hubby’s brother and his family and of course, my in-laws. But the plan did not push thru as the place was said to be fully-booked. It would have been our family bonding for this year. But due to other reasons, I guess the plan getaway was cancelled. Anyway, there’s always next time. Apple Tree would have been very conducive for us to relax and unwind. The place has swimming pools for adults and kids and there’s also a beach. Maybe next year, this will be pushed thru.
It’s nice to go on swimming at the pool once in awhile. When my family and I are available on a weekend, we love to go on swimming to have a family bonding where we can relax and unwind. But we make sure that the place we are going to are known for their cleanliness. In fact, I often asked the pool owners or workers if they put swimming pool pump to make sure that the water is flowing and circulating. Well, I believe it’s my right to ask as a customer for I don’t really quite like it when the water is stagnant.
