The Master bedroom is on the 3rd floor with a Super King bed and can accommodate one or two more single mattresses on the floor. The house can comfortably accommodate up to 8 people. The property has 24-hour water supply, toilet and bathroom have water heater. It has a dry pantry (no cooking upstairs), living room with cable tv + dvd player, a counter bar area on the ground floor and a huge verandah on the main entrance of the 2nd floor for entertaining or having your meals.

The house in Jagna is about 70 minutes car / van ride from Bohol's airport or ferry terminal in Tagbilaran City. Whether you arrive in Bohol via an airplane from Manila or via ferry / boat from Cebu/Dumaguete, a visit in Bohol will be even more exciting with local experiences at lesser cost than staying in busy touristy areas. Especially if you come in a group of 5 to 8 people, like on a family vacation or a barkada trip. This is when our house comes really handy for convenience, comfort and value for money.
ISLAND HOPPING ITINERARY RECOMMENDATION
We recommend 2-3 nights stay as the home base. We can organize a van / car to pick you up from Tagbilaran City airport or ferry port and bring you to the house or to go on a countryside tour straight away. The driver will serve as your tour guide, too. On the 2nd day, you may opt to spend a day on one of the nice beaches of Bohol - Panglao Island or Anda. The 3rd day could be spent savouring a local experience of Jagna town with a visit in the town market and taste the famous Calamay, a visit of the Ilihan Shrine on top of the Ilihan Hill which affords a beautiful view of the seaside town or a visit to the rice fields that surrounds the town or the local Kinahugan Falls. Then finally, you could end your Bohol tour with a start of another destination by taking the ferry from Jagna Port en route to Camiguin or Cagayan de Oro.
If the group is bigger than 6 people, the big house behind can accommodate 10-15 people and can be an alternative or can be rented together.
WHY BOHOL TOWN HOUSE?
The owner has another sea-side property which guests can access for day use if they wish to. It's a ten minutes drive.
There's wi-fi available for the guests. Coffee and espresso making machines and electric kettle are provided along with toaster and fridge. The bar area and the pantry kitchen have utensils and crockeries for use while at home. Cable TV is also provided.
If you are visiting Bohol to experience the culture, enjoy the scenery with friends and family, you would want to come home to a place that feels like home (not a faceless cold hotel). Furthermore, if you are coming from Manila or Cebu, it's a great idea to see another exotic island - Camiguin - to complete an island hopping vacation. Camiguin is a 2.5 hour ferry ride away from Jagna Port. You may take Ocean Jet to Camiguin from this friendly town called Jagna with the ferry departing regularly (we can help you book tickets).
Interaction with guests
The property is looked after by a team of housekeeper, gardener, cook and a supervisor. There will be a person assigned per group and a mobile number will be provided for easy communication. The host is also accessible on email or SMS.
Other things to note
If the guests want to explore the local town - see the market, visit some of the town pebbled beaches or see the cooking of the local delicacy Calamay - we can arrange it. If the guests want a meal to be cooked/prepared for them, this can also be done at a small fee.
No smoking in the bedrooms and inside the house. Balcony and verandah is fine.
No unlisted/unregistered guest allowed.
No party/entertainment past 10:30pm as the neighborhood is in a residential area and we wouldn't want the neighbors to complain of noise.

I'm hungry for experiences and exciting stories...and I do have my fair share to tell.
Originally from Bohol, currently residing in Singapore, I have visited many places and accommodation types. I appreciate beautiful designs, modern and traditional, but I'm leaning towards simple, soothing and relaxing places as I get older. I hope to share my place to people who also would like to stay in places where there's more than just a bed and a view.
