You've lived near the mountains, you've lived with a pool, heck, you might have even stayed in your own private island. But at some point in your life, you've dreamed of living in a beach house. There's just something about listening to the waves crashing against the sand in the morning and lulling yourself to sleep with the sound of the sea every night. Owning a beach house isn't a practical thing for most people, but you can rent them and, for the duration of your stay, pretend it's the same thing. We've rounded up the most beautiful Philippine beach houses available for rent on Airbnb.
