We love the outdoors, traveling, meeting new friends, my family and friends.
We look forward to hosting you.
If you are looking for a stress free, relaxing time with family and friends then this is it. The location is away from the busy main beach but transport is easy and cheap when you do want to venture over. This was a real positive for us. The house is at the end of a quiet road right on the beach amongst real Boracay people. You are part of the local community here so be prepared for the local kids to be around to actually play with your family - not sell you things! They are very friendly and extremely well behaved and fun. The care taking extended family looked after the place adequately and are very helpful. The best bonus was the cooked meals from Regan. Prawns, BBQ pork, chicken, fish, stuffed squid - all restaurant quality and served up on our deck - outstanding!!!
The house is as a beach house should be, not luxury but is big, well furnished and is well stocked with everything you need. We took extra snorkeling gear and a cricket bat, sand toys are available on the island. There are small supermarkets on the main beach to stock the house and you can buy fresh fruit and veg and a variety of local meals from the little shopping streets around the house. There is a little convenience shop right at the house which kept the beer fridge stocked and was really helpful. The snorkelling straight off the beach is the best on the Island - get out early in the morning before the Island hoping boats arrive. Todd, while we never met in person, was easy to communicate with on email throughout and when we did have a TV problem he had it fixed in no time. As you can tell we loved this place and would go back tomorrow - a great place to reconnect with the kids and perfect for sharing with other families - we had between 8 and 12 people for our 11 nights and other friends visiting the island were able to come over for dinner and drinks as well.
The Beachside 2 Bedroom Secret Hideaway is a little house really conform to the pictures. Really lovely beach, easy to access (PHP100) from the pier just saying "Tambisaan Beach". Then you walk on the beach to reach it (no road) which really helps you switch on with your holiday life!
If you want to get far away from a city lifestyle, this is it!
Really local area, almost no tourists, a few during the day for snorkeling (famous spot for it).
About the house itself, the lack of furniture quite annoying (no closet) and we had to leave our stuff in the luggage.
We got switched houses for the 3 last days and the other house is just breathtaking: more spacious, hand-made furniture everywhere, literally on the beach, more accessible, LCD Screen,etc. It changed our life
Thanks to Todd and Remy for this!
This was the most romantic amazing place to stay with someone you care about. So peaceful, and just amazing. I would go here 10 out of 10 times for a getaway! Thank you so much!
We just spent a weekend here and it was amazing. We were also thrilled to see that the hot tub was ready upon arrival.
The owners were very responsive and answered all questions in a timely manner. I'd definitely recommend this place for for a winter or summer stay.
Todd/Remy are great hosts they will take care of anything for you. The 2 villas that Todd/Remy organised for us were spotless, great service, great attention to guest needs it's 5 star service. Highly recommend booking with them for a great experience.
Thanks again for all the effort considering it was after the typhoon in Philippines you guys managed to accommodate so we had a great holidays.
Abbiamo soggiornato nella prima settimana di novembre e ci siamo trovati molto bene. La casa ha praticamente tutto quello che ti serve. È posizionata nella zona migliore dell'isola di Boracay e lontano dal traffico. I propietari sono molto simpatici e (website hidden) dovessi tornare sull'isola di Boracay ritornerei nella stessa casa. Consigliato vivamente a tutti.
Great house for a weekend away with friends! The house was perfect and the views are beautiful!! The hosts were also very accommodating. I reccomend this house for friends looking to get away from the city for some rest and relaxation!
Overall experience was nice, the beach house is at very good location with private and quiet beach. However, there are several things we are not happy with.
1) Firstly, there was a PHP 1200 charge for pickup (for 6 or less people), which is 4 times if we go to the place on our own, this is ridiculous. It's claimed to be "small" fee for pick up, but 4 times the normal transportation cost is just too much. Todd doesn't put the detailed instruction on how to get to Tambisaan beach, which it took us 2 mins to text our friends on how to get there later.
2) The house is only equipped with 1 proper aircon in 1 room, the other aircon is very noisy, living room and another guest room don't have air conditioning. This is not clearly mentioned in the house description. In such hot SEA weather, it's definitely too hot for rooms without air conditioning.
3) There is only 1 shower for sharing among 6-8 people, this is definitely not enough in such hot weather.
4) Todd sounds quite arrogant, we called the first day to complain about the pick up fee, he diverted the discussion and mentioned that he's already given us the best deal, this house is double booked and he needs to arrange another house for another group at a discounted price. And if he knows we would complain about this and that, he wouldn't rent the house to us. This is just unreasonable, does that mean if there's anything wrong with the booking or house, we can not even complain? And also when we booked the house, that's the deal, it's your own business to deal with the other group if that's double booked. It's also a message to others that your booking process is not efficient enough.
Nonetheless, we really want to say our house keeper Jennifer is really great, she's very nice and patient, cleaned the house perfectly everyday. And also the Tambisaan beach is nice with less people, we really enjoyed the beach and quietness.
The reservation was canceled 14 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We absolutely loved this property !!! I have been to Boracay 4 times and this by far was memorable! The property was perfect away from the touristy areas but close enough for get to if need be. A little hike but well worth it as Diniwid Beach was private and clean and still had the white sandy beach Bora is know for! Thank you for a great and relaxing time. Great communication and great housekeepers! I hope to come back again--- salamat from the Ilarina family:)
