Get lost with your loved ones in this secluded private getaway. Our property is located in a small cove with just one neighbor. No overcrowded tourists so you can enjoy your vacation alone. Our villa is just a few steps to a pristine white sand beach with a beautiful panoramic view of the ocean and stunning sunsets. Remoteness, seclusion & privacy is what our guests rave about us. Come over and experience an authentic Filipino accommodation & hospitality at one of the best islands in the world.

The space
Our beach front property is our private vacation paradise in the tropics. Our native villa is perfect for a family of 5. It is constructed with real hardwood and is furnished with natural, custom made materials with an open floor plan, decorated with a unique, handmade things to make it a special, relaxing place for our guests. It is situated on a hillside overlooks the ocean with beautiful sunsets and large enough to accommodate a small family or a small group while still plenty of room for everyone.

It has two bedrooms available. A queen four poster bed in the first bedroom, a twin bunk bed and a double bed in the other bedroom, complete with comfortable mattress and soft linens. Two bathrooms with flushing toilets and hot showers using solar heater. The living room and the dining room are both located in the front of the house where the view of the ocean and sunsets are best seen.

The whole front has sliding door panels which can be kept open (unless it’s raining hard) for a good breeze especially at night. Our kitchen has a fridge, which our guests can use to store their drinks and snacks if they have. It is constructed to modern standards with a tropical, rustic and vintage design. A new roof was newly installed for durability and better environment for our asthmatic kids.

Our property is surrounded by lush tropical vegetation and tall trees, where birds and other wildlife live. Enjoy our private white powdery beach just a few steps down along with a small open cabana, a swing bed and a picnic table. No other tourists but you. You will see Mount Capuas from the living room, the Master bedroom, the large deck in front and the smaller deck in the back.

Hiking, snorkeling, camp fire grilling while playing badminton at the beach are some of the fun activities you can do here. Swim at the beach to your hearts content where sparkling, clean water is so inviting, it is hard to resist. Our place is so exotic yet so peaceful, a nature lovers favorite, a home away from home.

If you are booking just for two, we have a small cottage perfectly for you. Please ask us about it and we’ll send you the link.

Guest access
We only accept ONE BOOKING AT A TIME, so you can fully enjoy your vacation without other tourists/ guests around during your stay. If you wonder why there is only a few reviews in this listing, it is because we have another little cottage we rent out to couples which is mostly booked during the entire year we are open.

We are truly “The Lost Traveler” and will be hard to find our place if you choose to rent a car to drive to our place. We have very few specific trusted drivers who know our location, and the last 1&1/2 hours travel is over undeveloped, unmarked roads without easily identifiable landmarks which at times due to weather conditions become nearly impassable. If we have to send out our caretaker to rescue you on your self drive, there will be an extra charge which includes last minute hiring of extra help while our caretaker is away and motorcycle maintenance (1500 pesos service fee). Please know that upon arrival, you will have to pay a 250 pesos( $5) parking fee to the caretakers watching the next door property.

Our property is located on 2+ hectares with a 60 meter beach line. Beyond our property to the south end of the cove, a couple hundred meters of beach line, there are no other residents. On the north end there is only one local neighbor. You can access both nearby fishing villages by walking or by riding a boat. If you like to hike, go further up the hill and enjoy the mountain and ocean views. The villages beyond are accessible by motorcycle and along the way have some breathtaking ocean view.

Other things to note
Our place is only open from October to May. The rest of the year we are close for the season. We started our Airbnb in Nov 2017.

IMPORTANT before you book:

• We are located in a very remote part of Palawan island where everything is not easily accessible. On the way here after you get off the National Highway is a dirt road and can get muddy especially during the rainy season from October- January, but the scenery is surreal. The driver we hire is experienced and safe.

• Commercial/ Professional shooting (photo, video, film) is not allowed in the property without our consent. If you plan to do the above, please get a hold of us to discuss our special rates and what specific photo shoot we do not allow. Thank you!

• Due to the nature of the area and the design of our cottages, we enforce a STRICT NO SMOKING POLICY at anytime, anywhere during your stay. If you smoke or plan to smoke during your stay, please find elsewhere. There is a penalty of $500 plus immediate removal from our property if seen and smelled an evidence of smoking. Thanks for understanding.

• We are off the grid and are using a generator for all of our electricity needs. It will run starting at 5 pm and all night long until 6 am the next morning. 99% of our guests were not bothered by the generator running all night long ( they’re just happy to have the fan on during the night for a much comfortable sleep). It is situated away from the cottage on a hill inside its own building.

• Our staff will offer to cook your meals for an additional fee payable on site. We would appreciate it if you could let us know ahead of time of any food allergies you may have. Sodas/beer/non-alcoholic drinks are available to purchase. Please note: We do not allow hard liquor in the property.

• Day trips such as Elnido Island tours ( A,B, C, D )- Private van hire to ElNido and back is 9,500 peso plus a 2,000 peso/person (island tour + island fee; payable to the boat man when you get to ElNido). Please note that the price above is with other tourists in the boat with you. A good chance to make friends from other countries. Private tours can also be arranged ahead of time- more pricey.

• We can arrange a shuttle service for pick up and drop off ahead of time upon request. The driver can make a quick stop at malls around the city for your groceries if you want to bring specific items, just let him know right away. Please note: the van transfer is not part of our business. Whatever you pay the driver, he takes it for his own. We only arrange his service for you. But rest assured, we trust him and have been hiring him for years.

Location

San Vicente, Palawan, Philippines

*The cove where our property is located is between two fishing villages, both can be accessed by foot or by boat. People are friendly and it is safe. Our property is located on 2+ hectares with a 60 meter beach front. Beyond our property to the south end of the undeveloped cove, there is an additional couple hundred meters of beach line with no other residents or structures. On the north end there is only one local neighbor.
* San Vicente is a tourist spot noted for its Long Beach, 1 & 1/2 hour drive south from our property, about 3 hours by boat (but would require larger boat rental from SV to come out and pick you up-gets pricey).
* Port Barton is another tourist spot about 2 hours drive south from here.
* Roxas is 2 & 1/2 hours south and Taytay and its old Spanish Fort is under 2 hours north. These two towns offer similar basic grocery shopping.
* El Nido is about a 3 hr drive. It’s where most tourists go when they visit Palawan. It’s a beautiful place but is fast becoming overcrowded with tourists. Best advice is rent a boat there in the morning for guided island hopping all day.

I'm a wife of a medical doctor and a homeschooling mom of 6 precious children. Other than taking care of my family, I also love to host people from around the world. We love our place in Palawan, Philippines, so we decided to build a small cottage and a kitchen to accommodate travelers who loved to go somewhere quiet and secluded. A place where they can have a peace and quiet in the middle of nowhere. No distractions, except for the sounds of nature. My brother who is a registered Architect built our beautiful native beach huts which I designed with the purpose of accommodating couples and travelers who wanted to get away from their daily hectic lives at home. I won’t be there personally to meet my guests, but my lovely hardworking staff Jun, Jen and JayR will be there to assist with you 24/7 on site. If you haven’t read the reviews about them, please do so. Hope to see you there!
