The villa is beautiful inside and out. The use of space with its high ceiling and spacious rooms allowed us to enjoy the fresh air which flowed freely into the villa. The entire property has a lot of corners where you can read a book or simply enjoy the sight and sound of nature. We loved the sun deck and the outdoor dining area which offered a perfect ambience for meals. We also enjoyed the seafood freshly delivered to our doorstep for an unbelievably cheap price. Not to mention, our caretakers were very friendly and efficient making our stay very comfortable. After our vacation at Nelly's Place, we felt so much refreshed and energized. We strongly recommend this as your next vacation home.

We stayed here during part of an extended annual holiday & everything was superb. From the greeting at the airport, the fresh fruit basket on arrival..........everything. Too often places booked on the internet can disappoint. I'm pleased to say this was not one of those places and I would not hesitate to stay here again if I return to Palawan - which I seriously hope to do.
The last 6 days have been the most relaxing experience in our lives. The view from the balcony is breathtaking!!! Me & Angel took plenty of pictures. Kris & Mar were extremely helpful. Jimbo, the friendly dog we finally met. Too bad you ate Agatha-the pig! hahaha..
Me & Angel will definitely come back. We already miss the place and thank you Nelly for accommodating us. Till we meet again. Thank you.

A very great place to stay, nice house, nice view especially in the morning. It's a good place for honeymooners or couples to unwind and bond with each other. The staff is amazing,hospitable and made sure that we get what we need and that our stay would be comfortable. Transportation is quite a problem since we're far from the city. Adding-up a life size mirror would be fantastic; we can only use the mirror inside the comfort room/
I would highly recommend this place for the people who wants to relax and get-away from the hustle & bustle of the city. You can relax and enjoy your vacation once you stay here... thanks.

A wonderful place to spend quality time with family! As a senior citizen that always lived in the city... i think that i can live longer if i were to stay here forever... fresh air, fresh food, peaceful, and beautiful ! Great staff... what else can I ask for...a perfect "home away from home". I wish to come back someday with my amigas too!

Good day Nelly,
Indeed we've had a wonderful time. It was one of our best vacation although the weather didn't help much and the kids got sick!!!.
Generally the place was nice and the scenery is amazing. We felt in love with the place to the point I'm thinking to buy a property there.
The people are nice, caring and helpful including the caretakers, Viviane and her husband.
The food is good and fresh especially the fresh milk!!.
We are already talking to go there again but this time we are going to make it in the summer definitely and we would love to stay in your/our vacation home.

We have had three wonderful days in Palawan! The vacation home is a lovely & quiet place perfect for relaxation!
Kris & Mar have been so nice to us and we loved playing with Jimbo & James. We will truly miss them.
After arriving Puerto on Monday, we relaxed & sunbathed on the roofdeck... On Tuesday, we went to Honda Bay & Wednesday we took the charming bumpy road to Sabang to the Underground River... What an amazing place!!!
Thanks to Alwin & Viviane for taking us around & being helpful; we enjoyed great food... Kris is an excellent cook!! ; ... and quite good weather.. ( a bit too many flies but that's life)!
We hope to return someday and to show it to our other friends. This is a lovely vacation home!!
By the way, the aircon in the bedroom is sooo quiet... we got to get one too back in Manila.

It's my first time to visit Hidden Hills; stayed for 4 days / 3 nights at the Sun House and I am so amazed of its architectural structure... it's awesome!
The place is perfect for honeymooners, friends bonding, family vacation and group camping... it is quiet... it is romantic especially at the upper deck and relaxing too. am planning to come back in August with my friends.
Suggestion: life size mirror in the bedroom ... he he he
Thanks to Kristy for cooking my food & Liza for keeping my room clean.
My favorite place in the house is the upper deck. I love to stay there for coffee, stargazing and checking my e-mails. (You must bring along your laptop and smart-bro or broadband though if you want to stay connected hehehe). Gracias!

Very helpful friendly staff made our stay very enjoyable.
The perfect place to escape to and re-charge batteries.
We really enjoyed Hidden Hills and may return again if circumstances allow.
