Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • First trip abroad, and had amazing stay with Josie & Koos! Very hospitable, clean, quiet area of city. Cottage was cosy & comforting. Having pool accessible at all times very nice, with heat of the Philippines. Having assistance from Josie, setting up tours, if needed, a great help.

    Fully recommend staying with Josie & Koos, if ever in the Palawan/Puerto Princesa area. I for one, if ever returning to the Philippines, will be staying again, if cottage is available.

    Thanks, Josie, Koos & Marie for making our stay on the lovely island of Palawan, one to remember!

    Hi Tom ,thank you so much...hope to see you again..take care

  • This is a fantastic little place. Josie and Koos are great hosts with some great friends that can help you out during your stay. Josie arranged a tour to the Underground River and breakfast is delicious if you wish to eat it.
    The house is nicely sized with everything you'd need for a vacation stay. The use of the pool is a nice extra :-)
    Rodilo, the tricycle driver, picked us up from the airport and he too is a delight.

    I can't say enough about the friendliness of everyone. A great experience all round.

    The only regret is that we didn't book for longer! If we ever go back we'd undoubtedly stay again.

    Thanks guys!

  • Josie & Koos were so kind and welcoming. They were very helpful in booking local tours and gave me endless amounts of insight as to where to go and what to see. I will definitely try to stay with them again in the future!

    Hi Audra,thank you so much..enjoy your stay with your family and goodluck for your career..we love to hear you sing.. :-) ,,hope to see you again..take care.

  • We can say it was the Best Accomodation what you can ever find in Puerto Princessa ! Joosie & Koos very very friendly and helpfully. The cute native house is very clean, you got all what you need inside ( TV, Bett, Shower & Fan ). Outside is a very cute terrace where you can enjoy a glas of red wine in evening. Also there is a Kittchen what you can use if you like. And Josie´s Breakfast is lovely and yummy.
    The area is very silence ( no Motorbikes ect what could disturbe you ). To move is also no Problem, Tricycle you can catch about 3 minutes by foot and then you can reach down town in about 5-10 minutes depends of traffic.
    For us is not a question, next time when we will come back we only go to Joosie & Koos. We both thank you both very very much and hope to see you again maybe end of 2014 !!!! Best regards to Theo ! Ingat ! Conny & Gerome

  • We really felt in love with the cute Filipino style house. Without aircon is it really fresh with a own bathroom. It is a really good place to relax among banana trees and flowers, taking a cool dip in the swimmingpool.
    Josie and Koos are very, very kind hosts. When we arrive on Christmas Eve they directly invited us to their Christmas party. We felt like at home. They gave us a lot of hints for our stay in the Philippines, they arrange bus-shuttles for us and they were always helpful. Josie made our laundry and breakfast for us, if we want, also dinner is available. The free Wifi connection is very good. We can only warmly recommend this place!

  • We had a fantastic stay with Josie and Koos. They are a lovely couple and they really made our stay in Puerto Princesa a good one. Josie organised us the underground river tour and van to El Nido and all in all took care of us. We really recommend staying few days in Puerto Princesa with Josie and Koos!

    Response from Josie&Koos:

    Thank you so much ladies..hope you enjoyed your stay..

  • A delight to stay with Josie and Koos. Clean, lovely room, surrounded by pool and patio with wifi and music on speakers late into the night. The house is about a 30 minute drive from the airport (short distance, but long traffic time), but not a problem because Josie & Koos picked us up from there. They treated us like valued guests, sitting down with us for coffee, and inviting us to a dinner party they threw our second night there, where we met their friends and had a great evening. They answered all kinds of questions we had. Highly recommended.

    Thank you so much Philippe and Catherine.hope you enjoy your time here in Palawan....:-)

  • Josie and Koos are very nice hosts!
    Everything is possible. They are willing to share their food, take you wherever you want to go and they have everything you need. Bicycle, Motorbike, Swimming pool, wifi ,tv and radio. Of course you will pay a little fee for the things you use.
    The guesthouse is very nice and clean. And no mosquito's inside :-)
    Their place is in a quiet area outside the city centre, so you only hear the sounds of nature. I had a good time with Josie and Koos, they invited met to go to a nice beach with their friends. I could use their swimming pool and we had nice conversations in the evening. Josie arranged tours and bookings for me. So if you are looking for a romantic and quiet place with very nice hosts book this place right now!
