Located in Tagaytay, 6 miles from Picnic Grove and 8 miles from People's Park in the Sky, Home Sweet by Bees and Lilies has accommodations with air conditioning and access to a garden. The units have tiled floors and include a seating area with satellite flat-screen TV, a fully equipped kitchen with a dining area and a private bathroom/10(5).

Bees serve as Lily’s unspoken guides throughout the novel. In the beginning, they come to her room to relay the message that she should head out on her own and leave T. Ray’s house. Likewise, Lily follows the trail of the honey label to Tiburon—and to the truth about her mother. The lily and the bee? The lily stands for beauty, Use, purity, and trust, It does a four-fold duty, As all good mortals must. Its whiteness is to teach us, Its faith to set us free, Its beauty is to cheer us, And its wealth is for the bee. “Consider the lilies!” But, it occurs to me, Does any one consider The lily and the bee?
