We will ask for a cash deposit upon check in, which will be used to pay for your electric and water consumption. Cash deposit is P3000 for weekly guests and P5000 for monthly.

Die Ankunft verlief reibungslos. Rosalyn war gleich da und hat uns alles für das Apartment erklärt. Die Wohnung ist sehr geräumig und schön eingerichtet und sehr sauber. Die Terrasse ist der Wahnsinn um am Abend den Sonnenuntergang anzusehen. Die Küche ist sehr gut ausgestattet, so das man sich problemlos selbst verpflegen kann. Die Fahrt zum White Beach dauert ca 10 min. Für alle Fragen ist Rosalyn erreichbar! Es gab ein paar mal einen Stromausfall aber glaube das ist hier nichts ungewöhnliches. Wir würden das Apartment auf alle Fälle weiterempfehlen !
Вилла просто кайф. Все чисто , уютно . Есть все необходимое . Только есть несколько "НО" мы не поняли , почему заплатили дополнительно за воду и электричество . Воду использовали исключительно 20 минут в день , в душе, кондиционер вообще не врубали . На вилле находились только вечером , свет горел в сутки Макс часа 2. С нас взяли депозит и отдали не весь . Не много конечно , но пои съеме жилья с таким сталкиваюсь впервые . Нас предупреждали , что за чрезмерное использование электричества попросят доп оплату , но это как ? Надо вообще не включать свет и воду ? Еще , если вы едите на короткий срок , то не стоит , вилла находиться в минутах 15 езды от 1 станции , и приходиться постоянно тратить деньги на дорогу туда и обратно . Вилла находиться не в каком то крутом коттеджном поселке а в деревенском поселке с петухами и прочей деревенской ерундой . А так если едите на долгий срок , то это конечно очень хороший вариант , учитывая еще то , что она по цене очень уступает другим виллам , а по качеству все хорошо ! Все чисто и уютно . Для семейного отдыха просто идеально! Советую .
Maria, thank you so much for your review! Our price is lower than our competitors because we don't include utilities. Water is cheap, but electricity is very expensive. Of course, use of light and water is not a problem. It's the use of the air conditioner that inflates the costs, i.e., if the a/c is left on all day, the electricity bill can cost up to $100USD per week. Sure, we can include this in our price, but some of our guests rarely use the air conditioner so we decided to keep it fair by only charging guests what they consume. Thank you again for your feedback. We hope you consider staying with us again during your next vacation in Boracay.
The place was clean and nice.We spend a great time there.If you want to live in the calm and beautiful area with the view on white send beach its the best place to stay in. Also we had lovely neighbors (Hi to Lorenzo and Beverly))))I hope we'll be back.
I booked 2 units at Shambala Terraces from Dec 02 - Dec 10, 2014, we were 2 couples. At first we thought it was going to be hard to find a lift back to white beach area, but we had no problems finding a tricycle anytime, usually less than 1 min. Both units were adequately furnished, bed was comfy. We even bought some fresh fish, meat, produce, at talipapa market, combined with some spices and sauces we brought with us. We were able to cook some very tasty meals using the gas stove, we did breakfast everyday their too so it was a little bit of work, but satisfying.. Unit 4 had a large deck part covered, part open air, so rain or shine we could enjoy the fresh air and views, we even sat out during typhoon Ruby, as the wind and rain did not touch us outside. One of the highlights in the neighbourhood is Balinghai resort and Beach. It's a 10 min walk just below shambala terraces. There is a 500 peso fee to enter the beach front, but you can receive the money back in the meals and drinks they serve at the seaside bar. The area is very secluded, only a few ppl there each time we went, food was very flavourful and prices reasonable. Swimming is a breeze, no rocks to trip on as you walk out, and was so refreshing everytime. Staff are very courteous and helpful..
Staff at shambala Terraces we're very helpful too, we had water and beer delivered just before we arrived, our host Ella was able to coordinate with onsite staff RoseLyn and Erwin who made our stay very pleasant and help with any questions or items we were needing. one of the other tenants in the building, Lorenzo, who I learner later was the contractor who build the building was able to supply us some fine inported wines at at reasonable price. WIFI was good in unit 1, but unit 4 only only at end of the deck, inside we had to use a hot spot to connect to the Internet..
Overall we had a great vacation at Shambala Terraces and are looking forward to returning again next year..
The Apartment is absolutly beautiful. Everything you need, clean, great view. I can highly reccomended it. I feel like at home!
Great location and exceptional terrace with world class view of the ocean...
The unit was missing some very basic items....no toaster, no coffeemaker
The internet was totally lame until Beverley took it upon herself to upgrade her system connection and I was able to piggyback on that ...
All and all a wonderful place that can be readily improved with minor adjustments..
Dear Paul, Thank you for your feedback. Per our listing description, wifi is 2 mbps. Sorry it was not fast enough for you. The unit includes a moka pot, which is a stove top coffee maker. Sorry we do not consider a toaster to be a basic item. We are pleased you enjoyed everything else and hope you consider us again during your next vacation to Boracay.
We had a pleasant stay at the apartment and as well on the great and breathtaking island. The room's are exactly as seen in the offer on the homepage, and Rosalyn the housekeeper takes great care about everything. The pool was nice and clean and the location was perfect. We really enjoyed the view down to the white beach and the area around while having a nice breakfast. In addition you can perfectly enjoy the sunset on the huge and phenomenal terrace. To sum up: We'd stay there again and again!
