The space

The Amazing Villa is a beautiful summer house, set in spectacular natural surroundings. It's a place to chill out, to recharge and to get inspired, far away from mainstream tourism. A place you can call home.The Amazing Villa sits on a large private property with 2 km of private coastline (of which 600 meters are white sandy beaches). The mountains in the background - covered with virgin rain forest - form a spectacular backdrop.

We like to eat fresh and healthy foods, so we have a large organic garden with vegetables, herbs and spices. We also keep French chickens (free range) for eggs and meat. Freshly caught fish can be had daily from a nearby fisherman's village. We hope our 2 Labradors and 2 cats will make you feel at home the moment you arrive. During the daytime you will most likely be enjoying the surroundings and the beach. At night you will fall asleep, soothed by the sounds of the waves and the rain forest. The house comes with two gardeners, a maintenance man and a beach janitor (for daily cleaning of the beach and its surroundings). You are welcome to do your own cooking, using our facilities (we cook on wood fire), but you may have to bring most of your ingredients from Puerto. The small shops near the Villa offer only basic things. If you wish, the hosts can also cook for you. My wife Theresa is very talented and highly passionate about cooking. She does wonders with all our garden fresh ingredients. Ask us about our meal plan !
We have built several private hideaways around the house, where you can enjoy the view and the sea breeze with a book, a cocktail or a cup of tea. Or just have a lazy afternoon nap in a hammock.
Other amenities of the house include a gym, a petanque court, a cocktail bar, a yoga platform/view deck and an outdoor kitchen. Planned amenities for the near future are a Zen Garden, a wood fired brick oven and a zip line that will take you from your balcony straight to the beach.

We are leading a comfortable yet low impact life style. We produce our own veggies and meat, make our own virgin coconut oil, natural bug repellents, yogurt, chocolate and cheese. We cook using only the freshest ingredients straight from our garden. We avoid chemical additives and processed foods. If you wish to learn or participate in our organic farming, you are very much welcome. We have some live stock to tend to as well (cows, goats, water buffaloes, chickens, rabbits).

To help keep our carbon footprint low, we invite all our visitors to plant one tree each. Either a long living fruit tree or a tropical hardwood tree. We provide the seedlings and make sure the tree will prosper.

Our place is ideal for:
* Families with children
* Couples looking to spend quality time together in paradise (hidden away from the rest of the world)
* Nature lovers
* Adventure lovers
* People who favor a healthy life style

Possible activities:
* Beach & Ocean (swimming, snorkeling, fishing, paddle boating, bonfire / BBQ)
* Mountain River (swimming, fish spa, BBQ)
* Jungle (hiking on old mountain trails, native hunting trails, bird watching, trip to waterfalls and relaxing in hidden lagoons)

If you enjoy good company, excellent food, a well stocked bar and good story telling then this is a great place to go. Its remote, and a considerable drive over some rough roads through the hills running down the spine of Palawan. Herwig describes part of the experience as 'digit…
