About this listing
Ideally located in the Diniwid valley just just north of the main beach, White Beach, Apoy Villa is only a 5 minute walk to the beautiful Diniwid Beach and a 20 minute beach walk to the action on White Beach.
Standing majestically on top of a hill, the PULANG LUPA enclave is one of Boracay's well-kept secrets. Along with a few other designer tropical homes, the two storey two bedroom villa in the Balinese temple style , APOY ( Fire ), is surrounded by lush landscaped gardens with flowering trees. This residence epitomizes the true island lifestyle. The roof is of cogon grass and the terra-cotta tiled ground floor features a spacious living area and a six-seater solid mahogany bar, adjacent to the fully equipped compact kitchen, that enables guests to enjoy their own Happy Hour under the ceiling fans while lounging in the giant bamboo sofas and chaise louge. The wrap-around glass sliding doors allow the constant flow of the cooling breezes and leads out to the round garden gazebo, furnished with a long picnic table for ten, built in cushioned garden seats, central barbecue pit and a side bar.
The master bedroom in the upper storey boasts of a solid wooden floor and a king size four-poster canopied bamboo bed. The long balcony affords views of the gardens, the picnic gazebo and the unspoiled Diniwid hilltops. The spacious marble bathroom contains a sunken bathtub, bidet and an outdoor shower in a secret garden. Next to the downstairs living area is a twin bedroom with en suite marble toilet and shower. The décor throughout has the unmistakable touch of the Orient.

Apoy villa is located in the Diniwid area just north of the main beach, White Beach. Diniwid Beach is beautiful small beach the is much more secluded than White Beach. The villa is only a 5 minute walk from Diniwid Beach and a 20 minute beach walk to White Beach. It offers a tranquil retreat that is also near the action of White Beach
Most private vehicles are not allowed on the island. Public transportation consisted of "tricycle" that can best be described as a motorcycle with a large side car. New, larger electric mini buses (a distinctive green color) are gradually being introduced.
