Newlyweds Angel Locsin and Neil Arce have always been a no-fuss couple. From their dating life to their private civil wedding, this couple undoubtedly knows how to make an impact in their own authentic way.

This time around, they took fans along in their new venture as a married couple: their first home together. In a series of videos on their joint YouTube accountThe Angel and Neil Channel,” Angel and Neil filmed a house tour showcasing how they blended their tastes together to form the ultimate cozy nest.

On the first part of the tour, the couple explored the first floor of their newly renovated home that was a gift from Neil's parents since the two lived in separate condo units before getting married.

“Baka kasi iniisip nila, ‘pag artista ka, ang bilis ng lahat. Pero ang tagal namin naghanap. Siyempre dapat kumportable kami, okay sa locations ng trabaho namin, at kaya ng budget,” Angel said. 

"Actually si Angel karamihan nag-design diyan,” Neil added. 

Their first video showcased the couple's giant front door designed by Claude Tayag, foyer, powder rooms, living room, and outside amenities like a porch and swimming pool. They also shared the history of some of their personal paintings and gifted decorations - as they were friends years before starting a romantic relationship.

Meanwhile, their second house tour sees the pair on the upper floor of their home, which includes the master bedroom, guest bedroom, Angel's glam room, and balconies. Sprinkled throughout the vlog are also Angel's proud "budol finds" that she points out, such as automatic lights for their cabinets, paintings, and art pieces, and more.

The couple ended the video with a message for fellow newlyweds who are just getting the hang of living together, as the pair also discovered new things about each other through the process.

"Marami kaming natutunan about each other while making this our home," Neil shared. "Be honest and learn how to compromise. Make sure na all your cards are out, alam ng asawa niyo lahat ng ugali niyo."

Angel added: "Ang pinakaimportante kasi yung respeto niyo sa isa't-isa wag mawawala yun."

"Alam mo itong bahay na 'to, mawiwitness ang good and bad memories namin together pero ang importante is kahit anong mangyari, till death do us part. Uuwi kami sa isa't-isa," he concluded

They decided to share their new home to feel more in touch with their fans amid the pandemic.

"While we try our best to follow rules, we admit we crave human connection today more than ever," Angel shared on Instagram. "So, we had this idea to use our platforms and break this invincible wall surrounding us.

"We decided to open the doors of our home and let you in VIRTUALLY. By sharing our journey, we hope you'd allow us to connect with you, and let us be part of your journey as well," the actress added.

The first part of their house tour series garnered over 4.4 million views, while their second video has 1.2 million views. Watch the series here:
