The space

View all our listings here : ... ... ... ... ... Want a unique natural local experience in the Philippines... Join with other adventurous travelers and locals who love nature and simple living while getting to be close to the Philippine culture on an organic farm with sea views.

We're an organic farm integrated into the local Gumot community. We have guests come from all over the world who are travelling in the Philippines and stop by for a nature-filled experience. Some of our longer staying guests help on the farm or help in the community with the local kids.

Guest access

You have your own private room PLUS the whole of the Happy House is a self-contained space away from the other house (Little Happy House) that you can use. The whole of the farm is accessible - we have 1.2 hectares in field, tree, garden and wild spaces.

Interaction with guests

We (Carol, myself - David, and our little daughter Kyra) are usually here all year round.

Other things to note

View all our listings here : ... ... ... ... ...

You can get a La Union bus right to the entrance of our Baronguy. Then a tricycle to our organic farm. Express bus from Cubao only takes 4 hrs.

This is a SIMPLE and natural space and while it's not a totally local experience - because we have things like running water and electricity ! - it is totally connected to the rural farming community here where the people are so giving, caring and magnificent.

We have clean and comfortable composting toilets (5) and outdoor connected nature bathrooms (4) - private of course.

We are not a hotel or resort - just a simple living space where we take care of you and you can have a fun natural experience. Our facilities are good but very natural and simple. This place suits people who are travelling or want a simple place to hang out and relax in nature away from it all.

If you stay for a night we provide dinner on the day of arrival and breakfast the next day. If you stay longer we provide lunch as well. You can also have lunch on the day of arrival and leaving just pay a little extra per person.

David and Carol are great hosts and were very welcoming. As an AirBnb guest you are invited to explore their farm and meet some of the farmers and neighbors. The room is simple and comfortable. The food is exceptional! I recommend this stay to anyone looking for a little adventure and connecting with nature.

Nature lovers will enjoy exploring happy house organic farm. We loved this place and wished we could have stayed another night. We liked the ambiance because we were greeted with a refreshing sight of greeneries. I would highly recommend staying here because this place is perfect for people who want to escape the noisy and polluted Metropolis.

If you are looking for a different kind of experience and are not squeamish to nature, this place is for you. If your objective is to get away from the hustle and bustle of your life, this place is for you. David and Carol has pretty much described the place and that is what you will get. The accommodation is pretty basic (was amazed by the composting toilet!), but what made the experience different is that you get to stay and interact with the family. It's as if you're staying in a relative's house, where you get to enjoy the homemade fresh food (the vegetables that they cook are so fresh, most of the time, they're picked from the garden). Carol is full of stories and their 5-yr old daughter, Kyra is such a bundle of energy, curiosity and joy. I really enjoyed my stay here and I encourage you to try the place out.

David and Carol's place is the perfect place to stay if you are wanting to step off the treadmill and are seeking peace and quiet. It wouldn't suit someone who wants all mod cons, but for those of us who wish to re charge batteries this is the place to go. Carol is the most lovely, vivacious and helpful hostess ever. The food was deliciously simple and tasty, the location was quiet, the scenery was rural and relaxing, we will never forget walking through the local farms on our way to find the ocean, or the sunsets. The "acid test" is always, would we stay there again, the simple answer is yes.

it was a great time staying with them. we felt like we are part of the family! everyone is so welcoming and friendly we didn't felt like a visitor. We also learn a lot from David about organic farming and he also gave us some life advice! we also had a great time with their other guests. Kyra is very cute and we love playing with her. we will be back for sure!

Thank you David, Carol and Kyra, and Ate Minda and Kuya Loreto for the warm welcome. We enjoyed so much not only the place, the food, but most especially your smiles and company. Hope to be back. This time not on a retreat but to learn more in being involved in an organic farm and your different advocacies.

What a lovely & memorable stay! Hosts made us so welcome, lots of laugh & yummy food, really making us feel like part of the family. Very much enjoyed the walk with Carol & her sweet little daughter Kyra at a nearby farm, even picking wild fruits along the way! I highly recommend this place & given the chance, I would definitely go back.
