It was only a couple of weeks ago when Bea Alonzo was sharing snaps of her trip to Madrid on Instagram. Many speculated that the Start Up actress was in the Spanish city for work, but she just revealed that she was actually there for a very special personal matter.
In celebration of her YouTube channel's 100th vlog, Bea shared to her fans that she's now a homeowner in Madrid! She says that her week-long trip was actually spent hunting for the perfect apartment for her and her family.
On why she chose to find a home in the European locale, she simply states, "I love Spain. Because of the pandemic, naisip ko, 'You only live once.' You have to go for it. Since last year, I have been looking for an apartment. Nagumpisa lang yan sa patingin-tingin sa internet."
The multihyphenate's criteria for choosing the right home boiled down to three things: it had to be in a safe, family-friendly location, it had to have at least two to three bedrooms, and it had to have multiple windows. "Spain is a sunny country, and gusto ko maramdaman yung pagiging vibrant, yung pagiging energetic yet traditional ng Spain," she says.

Out of the six she checked out, Bea settled on a studio apartment in the Chamberi district. The building's exterior retained its 1800s motif, while the inside was designed by famed Spanish architect Tristan Domecq.
The unit boasted of exquisite marble countertops, roomy bedrooms and living spaces, and a balcony overlooking the bustling neighborhood. It was a space as chic as Bea herself!
While she admitted that her choice was over her alloted budget, seeing the view outside really made her reconsider. In the end, it was the one that made perfect sense for her to purchase.
Congrats on the new pad, Bea! While we wait for an apartment tour, go check out the rest of Bea's vlog below:
