Casa Santa, San Isidro Antipolo

One of the place i'll really love to visit especially this holiday season. Introducing the Casa Santa, an internationally recognized Santa Clause collection that house Santa items ranging from life size, singing santas to Turkish inspired bronze plaque of Santa Clause. At present, it is one of the most extensive private collection of Santa Clause items in the country. It contains a massive “Santa” collection with over 2,000 santas in every imaginable size and configuration that extend from Santa blankets to a chessboard with Santa figurines to Swarovski Santas that riddle every nook and cranny of the house. And unlike traditional stuffy museums, the Casa Santa is a fun museum in that the visitors are free to inspect the items closely, or in some cases, play with it.

In December 2005, the Casa Santa was featured in international television thru Associated Press. It is also oftentimes visited by school children. It brings joy to everyone the whole year round. True to her nature as a fun loving art collector, Jardin’s proprietor did not stop at the Santa collection. She has extended her collection to other works of art such as the sculptures of renowned artists Ed Castrillo, Michael Cacnio and Ral Arogante. It is displayed and incorporated in the elegant landscape design of artist Tony Leano.

Another curious item in the Jardin de Miramar is the restored Noah’s Ark. Noah’s Ark is an antique wooden fishing boat reconstructed into a play/dining/bar area. And like any work of art in the Jardin de Miramar, this antique boat not only serves as a charming relic that is lovely to look at. It is a hardworking piece of art where guests at the venue can hang out. Indeed, Jardin de Miramar is not only a party venue but also it is a fun filled, living and breathing museum nestled under the canopy of nature.
Apart from Casa Santa Museum and the Galera playground, seven different thematic party venues are available for rent within the grounds of Jardin de Miramar.
