We offer complimentary pick up and drop off to the Tagbilaran Airport or Ferry Port. If you arrive through one of the other ports we can arrange pick up, however the driver will charge transfer fees. If you would like to explore the island we can arrange a tour with private driver or if you are more adventurous we can arrange a hire motorcycle for you.
Being independent in terms of transport will make your stay more enjoyable. Bohol is a remote province so taxis, uber and public transport is limited and often unreliable.
We recommend guests take out travel insurance when visiting the Philippines as transport can sometimes be delayed/canceled due to typhoons. We apply our published cancelation policy in these instances.
We are a very easygoing household but we have a few simple requests of our guests:
1. We are a non smoking house, however you are welcome to smoke outside.
2. The room is suitable for two people only. (Please don't ask for additional guests)
3. Please note we are 20 minutes away from the main tourism area of Panglao so we STRONGLY suggest you hire a motorbike, car or tricycle to get around. We are happy to help you make these arrangements.
4. Guests are not allowed to cook while staying in the house. We offer menu options if you decide to eat in. You are welcome to make coffee and tea during your stay and help yourself to fresh fruit that is provided.
5. No food in the bedrooms please as it attracts ants.
6. Our house is not suitable for young children.
7. We offer accommodation in a private house. We are not a resort.
8. Only guests registered through AirBnb are allowed on the property (no outside guests)
9. We suggest guests have travel insurance as it is not uncommon for ferries to be cancelled in bad weather. In an event of a guest cancelling we will always apply our moderate cancellation policy
10. Please turn off the Air conditioner when you leave your room as electricity here is very expensive
11. Henna tattoos are popular on the beaches here. If you do get one it is your responsibility to cover them so our sheets and towels are not damaged. If they are damaged we will charge for replacements through the AirBnb resolution center.
NOTE: You will be staying in a private room with your own private bathroom within our house. We are NOT a resort.
"Semi retired' and keen travellers originally from Australia, Fiona and I are now based in the Philippines after falling in love with the country and its people. We were initially posted to Bohol by AusAid, undertaking several tourism and economic development related projects in the region.
We are both keen readers and foodies. We have owned guest houses and restaurants in Australia previously so love to interact with people. We loved the Airbnb experience so much we decided to become hosts.
