Cynthia is the perfect Airbnb host. She picked us up at the airport and even dropped us off at the nearby mall to grab provisions from the supermarket. Along she way she pointed out restaurants to try and things to do. By the time we dropped off our bags were well situated to the city. Her place is truly a getaway from the bustle of Puerto. It's a bit of ride from the restaurants/bars of Rizal street in a quiet residential area. It sports a lovely outdoor area and has a nice view of the nearby mangroves. Beach access is a short walk down the road. Since the house is located away from the main Puerto area the caretaker, Mark, who lives next door has a tricycle dedicated to transporting the guests to where they need to go. The Robinson's mall is only a short drive away. The house has cable TV and a fully equipped kitchen. If you're looking for a relaxing stay away from the busyness of Puerto this place is for you, this is not the place to book it you're looking to be in the middle of the action.
I can't imagine a better way to welcomes guests than to meet them at the airport. This is what Cynthia did for us. She took us to her villa, which despite being in Puerto Princesa proper, really feels like it's in the country (crowing roosters and all).
Villa San Manuel lived up to its expectations. Very roomy and homey. There were four of us and we felt quite comfortable.
And Cynthia was great in making our PP stay memorable. She organized island hopping and the underground river, gave us great advice and helped us out with a few stops at the new Robinson's mall.
So, we were extremely happy with our time in PP. I would strongly recommend this place to anyone planning to stay for a few days in the city.
The house was our little paradize for 1 week. Overlooking the mangrove, you have the house for yourself with a lovely sitting area outside. We mainly sat outside and enjotyed the nice sea breeze.
it was a little far from the shops/restaurants. Which is nice as it is quiet. but also a little tricky to get your grocery. We rented a car for 1 day. Cynthia drove us to some nice places as well. She is great host and has nice suggestions for restaurants etc. There is so much teo see and do at Palawan. 1 week was not enough to also be able to relax.
Definately recommend this hous and Cynthia as a host to everyone!
Very good experience! Communication with Cynthias was excellent and thr cottage is ideal! A bit hot during the day but very peaceful! In a 10min trycicle ride there is a big mall with a big supermarket! The kitchen has everything you need! I would definitely recommend it! Thank you again Cynthia
First of all, Cynthia was the most hospitable host I ever had. Her guest house is delightful. A few friends and I came to Puerto Princessa to experience this tropical paradise. We were so glad to find a place like San Manuel guest house.
Cynthia and fellow caretakers took great care of us. This house is absolutely beautiful, all the amenities you would need. Cynthia was also kind enough to give us a ride to and from the airport, and book all our Palawan adventures. I will definitely come back to this house again.
We had an amazing 10-day stay at Villa San Manuel! The house looks even better in reality than on the pictures. Cynthia was all the time very helpful to us – from the pickup service at the airport, driving us to the car rental shop, and to answering our questions regarding Puerto Princesa tours. She even personally made sure we were all fine when we had a minor accident with a motorcycle! Also, Mark, the caretaker of the house, who lives next door, was there for us whenever we needed him. For example, ordering and delivering containers of drinking water, accompanying us to the market, checking on the air condition, etc.
The house is perfectly fitted to our needs. There are 2 separate bedrooms, so, we brought our parents along. They enjoyed the place the most, particularly, the gazebo and the garden. There’s always fresh breeze from the seaside, that it is almost unnecessary to use the air condition during daytime. We used aircon mostly in the evening, but our bill for the electricity was still reasonable. The idea of having a separate bill for electricity is good, this way visitors become aware on what they will be actually consuming.
We were looking for a quite place not to far from the main town and for us, this is just right place. Only 5-minute drive to the main highway, far enough from the noise of the traffic, but still convenient enough to reach the main town. Our parents enjoyed the relaxation, while we enjoyed the dive spots near Puerto Princesa. Moana Dive Center (located along the airport road) showed us the best dive spots in Puerto Princesa– a perfect warm up for our Tubbataha liveaboard trip which started right after our 10-day stay at Villa San Manuel.
We would love to come back to Villa San Manuel. It is an ideal location for us to stay in Puerto Princesa, Palawan.
Cynthia is someone you rarely come across in life. She went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable during our stay, she truly spoiled us. Out of the 10 hotels & Airbnb apartments I've stayed at in the Philippines, Cynthia's was hands down the absolute best. The house is everything you can dream of; beautifully decorated and has everything you could possibly need (strong internet, washer, indoor/outdoor entertainment areas, gardens, every kitchen gadget, fresh breeze, everything!!!!)
Cynthia took us on an excursion to the mountains, she prepared a BBQ for us, and she allowed us to use her motorbike beyond our stay at her property. I have never had such an amazing hostess.
If you have the opportunity to rent this house and meet Cynthia, DO IT!!! It may just be the best part of your whole trip. Thank you for everything! Can't wait to come back!!
