A Peaceful and Special Hideaway
September 25, 2013
Good vacation rentals in Leyte are hard to find and this is a real gem. If you want peace and seclusion its here but you are not isolated, the locals are very freindly but never intrusive and always have a smile. If you are not familiar with semi rural small town Philippines then you may have a pleasant surprise. If your thing is Malls, bars and restaurants then maybe try this place, its different. You shop in the public market, you can find all you need and fresh too. Buy your fish after 4:30pm, its fresh from the sea. If you need a town then BayBay, Bato and Maasin are not far but they are not cities. My wife lives in San Jose Dulag and we travelled aircon van from there 600 pesos each round trip, not much more from Tacloban, beware those who want to charge you 3500 each way, ok you get the van to yourself but its up to you. The cottage is well equiped and comfortable with aircon in the bedroom and fans in the other rooms. Gas for cooking was inclusive and you can also BBQ in the garden which has a toilet and shower plus cottage. Swimming is good when the sea is calm but it's shallow water for 30-50m, best at high tide. We went as a couple, if you are a group of 3 or 4 then you will share the bedroom which has 2 queen beds. We didn't have time to explore the 4 nearby islands but they look amazing and we plan for that next time, we did explore Hindag Caves which were worth a visit, one of Loloy's friends rented us a motorbike (200 a day) so we did have mobility..the pedicabs are a bit small for westerners. It was a pleasure dealing with Imelda the owner and I give this 5 stars as the best rental in its kind of location that I have found.
