WELCOME TO CHATEAU DU MER BEACH RESORT
If this is your first time in my site, welcome! Chateau Du Mer is a beach resort with a beach house and conference Hall. The beach house could now accommodate 10 guests, six in the main floor and four in the first floor( air conditioned room). In addition, you can now reserve your vacation dates ahead and pay the rental fees via PayPal. I hope to see you soon in Marinduque- Home of the Morions and Heart of the Philippines. The photo above was taken during our first Garden Wedding ceremony at The Chateau Du Mer Gardens. You can now read the national and international news in this blog at the right side bar. I have also posted my favorite Filipino and American dishes and recipes in this site. Some of the photos and videos on this site, I do not own, but I have no intention on the infringement of your copyrights!

Selected Photos from Our Two Abodes
If you have been following my blogs, you probably know we called ourselves snowbirds. We have a retirement home in the Philippines, but our primary residence is in Northern California. The following are some photos showing the differences between our two lifestyles. Since pictures are worth more than a thousand words, all you will read are labels of the photos; Enjoy my photos:
The first photo is our ranch style home in the Philippines and the second is our home in Northern California
Our backyard in Marinduque versus our backyard in Northern California
The first photo is our side yard in the Philippines versus our side yard in Northern California
The first photo is the twin orchids in my front yard in the Philippines versus the yellow orchid in my yard in Northern California
My jack fruit tree in the Philippines versus my lemon tree in Northern California
My PC in the Philippines versus my PC in Northern California
The first photo is in northern California with green salad, wine and Dungeness crabs, versus filipino cuisine of Marinduque.
Last but not least are our two pets:The first photo is Miko( Marinduque) and the second is Gimlet( California)
Our friends often asked us which abode do we prefer. Our answer is always, both places. Marinduque is excellent place during winter time and Northern California is an excellent abode during Spring, Summer and Fall.
