The bungalow is a really nice and cozy. It has a fan and a kitchen area for you. The bathroom function well and they provided you with towels. However, you have to bring your own toiletries. And remember to contact Edgar when you arrive so her staff Cristian can help with your luggage. It's a good exercise for us to walk up 50+ stairs to arrive the bungalow. The place would be better if there are less insects ( we saw many ants , a frog during our stay). Bring mosquito repellent too if you stay here. Overall it was ok .
Very beautiful bungalow! All was perfect!
But location can be better!
The bungalow was easy to find since the instructions to give to the tricycle driver were clear.
We were fortunately greeted by the staff who helped us with our luggage to climb the more than 100 steps to the last of the 6 bungalows of the compound. Photos give a very good idea of this awesome design both traditional and very chic, with minimal (one armchair, no sofa) but tasteful old furniture.
On a hill but no view though. Next bungalow is about 10 yards away. Garden is shared with others. A mix of mainly wild vegetation and some planted shrubs or banana trees. A small open grass space with a big vegetable garbage bin in lieu of decorative statue?
Inside the sliding panels make airy with no need for air con. They don't really slide anymore, and one of them felt on the bed during a windy night, no harm since one of the four post of the bed retained it. Kitchen is minimal: one gaz heater so you must first heat the water and then cook your eggs in the morning. No oven of any kind. No corkscrew but the staff provided one as soon as we asked for. No dishcloth.
The bathroom has a nice open air design Bali-like. The water heater did work 30 seconds before setting off for 15 mns, even used at minimum. Didn't work at all the 3 last days and wasn't repaired though we asked for it. No hair dryer makes it hard to wash one's hair in cold water. Only one average size thin towel per person. No beach towel. We had to spend 2 hours to find a place to buy them: every hotel usually furnish them. The Diwined beach, very nice and tranquil, is about 10 mns away. Anytime you go somewhere you have these 100 steps to climb or descend, so dont'forget anything! Though away from it all (but close to neighbours) you still have this irritating boum boum music (all night of every day) of this same house in the street down the hill, facing the entrance of the compound. Noise climbs easily. You also have, more rarely, the music of some other neighbor up the hill. The noise of this music can be a little hidden by the one of the very noisy fan that aires the place.
Wifi does work, but so slow!
I did like the design of the place.
But all in all I would next time choose a (cheaper!) bungalow direct on the beach, with less mean amenities like real towels, hair dryer, hot water. I don't mind for the lack of aircon or the ridiculously small TV that I don't use anyway.
The house is truly amazing! We loved the location, away from the crowds and close to a very nice beach.
Beware of the long stairs to reach the property, they might not be suitable to everyone.
Русский: это потрясающее место для влюбленной пары - все так как на фото, а то и лучше! Потрясающая хижина. До моря очень близко и diniwid просто волшебный пляж! Из минусов - это только ночная жизнь под домом- кто то ползает, угугукает и если у вас сон не очень или вы не смелый мужчина которому все ни по чем, то может быть жутковато. Но это очень яркие и прекрасные впечатления!
The bungalow is really quite charming and the garden around is lovely. I might state the obvious here, but no A/C is a challenge, especially in a place where the sun rises at 5am. The place would be really bright and very hot rather early. Obviously again, a place open like that one is a magnet for bugs, which did not bother me so much, but might be a problem for others. The bed was too small for me (I am 190cm tall). The bathroom is great and with a lot of natural light.
Location is great and quiet, with Diniwid beach close by, which is an awesome place for a drink by the sunset.
Edgar was a great host, and the villa was in a tranquil and beautiful setting, with many plants and flowers. Edgar had someone waiting for us at the compound on arrival (despite our flight being 1.5 hours late), who carried our bags to the villa. Edgar also arranged a 5am tricycle pick up for us on our return. The villa is in a great setting, only a few minutes walk to the beach, and in a quiet and pretty compound. It was cleaned every day, and fresh towels left. Diniwid Beach is a nicer area to stay than White Beach - it is more peaceful, less crowded and the water is beautiful. It also has some great places to eat in the evening.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Muntinglupa, and found it to be a very 'authentic' bnb experience. By 'authentic' I mean it engaged you with the unique culture you were in, from the actual location (an area where you could experience daily life of people living on Boracay) through to the accommodation architecture. The accommodation itself was both relaxing and intriguing. I loved waking to the sounds of the birds in the morning and sleeping to the sounds of the insects and geckos. The house is beautiful in it's simplicity and openness. The beach is an easy two minute walk down the road, where there are also restaurants and activity options. Transport to anywhere on the island is easy to get outside the house, and it is also easy to walk around and watch the action on the streets. Edgar, the host, is very helpful and friendly, as are the other people living in the houses in the same compound area, giving you a perfect balance of human interaction and community feeling. I want to go back - this place is great!
Замечательное жилье соответствует фотографиям, кроме фотографий сада! Дом находиться в 5-10 минутах расслабленной ходьбы от пляжа! Есть недостаток дом на горе и к нему ведут крутые ступеньки! Дома друг от друга на небольшом расстоянии, Во всем остальном просто замечательно! Достаточно тихо и уютно!
Muntinglupa is a curious little property at the top of a very beautiful garden. An imaginative design, it is windowless - having sliding screens instead. A large mosquito net was draped over the bed, on its raised platform, though there were few mosquitoes on the island anyway.
The property is truly delightful and we had a lovely time - lulled to sleep by the carousing of insects and woken by many little birds in the morning - it was as close as is possible to actually sleeping in a forest, I imagine.
Secure in a private compound and a 3 minute stroll from Diniwid cove, probably the best little beach on the Island with lovely friendly bars and easy access to water sports and taxis to the rest of Borocay.
We would strongly recommend this place to any couple or individual wanting a relaxing stay in a very special property - which will give you an unforgettable experience of magical Borocay island.
Equipped with a small but adequate kitchen with fridge and a lovely bathroom with a hot shower, the apartment also boasts reasonable high speed access to the web via free wifi connection and is serviced daily by maids who tidy and clean, will change sheets if desired and proved fresh clean towels.
Edgar is a lovely man - and was very friendly and sympathetic, speaking first-rate English and with a good knowledge of the island.
We are overjoyed to recommend Muntinglupa to the lucky traveller who considers this very special property.
