“Total Seclusion”

Reviewed 24 Dec 2015

If you're looking for a quiet and secluded tropical vacation home to rent on Bohol's Panglao Island that's off the beaten track and away from all its pricey resorts, look no further than this property. This is a clean and comfortable two bedroom home with a swimming pool and guest house. It's all situated on well-manicured grounds that're completely enclosed by an 8-foot high privacy wall and accessed only through a heavy iron driveway gate. Beyond the entry gate is a narrow dirt road that a short 10-minute walk on will lead to a public gazebo on a bluff overlooking the Bohol Sea. A steep set of concrete stairs from the bluff provides ocean access where swimming or fishing is possible, but there's no beach there per se. The vacation house itself is cheery and bright - tastefully appointed, with large front windows, high ceilings and ceramic tile flooring throughout. It features a full-service kitchen, double-sink bathroom, satellite television, Wi-Fi and a karaoke machine. It's a fun and relaxing place to hang out at - particularly for a family with two or three children. For larger numbers, the guest house can be made available for additional charges. Friendly local caretakers will come by nearly every day to clean the pool, perform landscaping and attend to any tenant needs. No major shopping districts exist in the area, but there's a small sari-sari store just down the road where a limited stock of convenience items can be purchased. Tagbilaran City is just a 15-minute drive away. The caretakers can arrange for transportation, or you can opt to ride into town yourself on a motorbike that's kept on the property and available for tenant use. If total seclusion is what you seek, you will not be disappointed by staying here. It's an excellent value and highly recommended!

Owner's reply: Thanks Mark glad you enjoyed your stay hope to see you again somtime.

“Amazing vacation. Great Villa!”

Reviewed 6 Jul 2015

Great Villa. It is much better than shown on pictures. Daryl is VERY reliable and always very helpful. He is VERY easy for communication. One of the best vacations we have ever had. First place in my experience we definitely will be back again. Great quite and comfortable place for family to stay. Far from any 'night life' and this is exactly what we needed. Some points: - Buy local sim-card 'SMART' to call Manang, Tricycle driver etc. Available at 'mini-mini' market 15 meters on the left from villa's gates - Restaurants: La Veranda Restaurant 550 m on the right (towards the Airport) on the cement road - but we spent there more than 3 hours waiting for several dishes we ordered - wasted time/money; La Panorama /Bohol Plaza resort/ restaurant (shown on Google Earth) - 2,8 km far from villa and you will need to go up the hill (but after this you will find cold 'San Miguel' beer even more tasty ), excellent menu, adequate prices, good white house wine, pizza for kids, 100% recommended! Beaches: beach 'with access via stage' (like in Sorrento, Italy ) 150 m on the left from villa-no sand but extremely clean, suitable even for children 3 y.o. especially during the low tide; very clean and sandy Bikini beach (4 km to walk from villa - excellent exercise when it is 35 C outside ) but NO restaurants at all, but you can buy good spring rolls and fried chicken wings 10 Pesos for each (noodle and steamed vegetables also available) at local Eatery on the opposite of Biking Technical School that you will pass on the way to Bikini Beach; Alona Beach-you will need bike, tricycle or taxi to get there, A LOT OF restaurants, sandy beach but TOO dirty-you will find empty cans/bottles and somebody's pants rather than sea animals when snorkeling there  - Transportation: when you need to get back to Daryl's villa explain any driver that you need to go to Catarman village, he needs to take a turn from Hontanosas Road to Catarman Elementary school (there is sign) and then turn on the left and drive 200 meters till 'Las Brisas' sign; you/Manang can call local trycicle driver Raymond who is man of integrity and will nether ask for too much money, we paid him 200 pesos to get my wife, two sons 5 and 7 y.o. and myself to Alona Beach (one way), he speaks English (a bit) so it is better to duplicate the information by texting his mobile; I would avoid using the car service provided by local driver because they may ask too muc

Owner's reply: Thanks Platon Hope to see you again.If you ever come back I will give you a discount. Thanks again Daryl

“very peacceful”

Reviewed 10 Nov 2014

I very much enjoyed my stay. I had a relaxing time and felt at home in the spacious surroundings. The area is very secure and quiet. I wanted to stay away from the congestion of the tourist spots so this place suited me. After all, these spots are only 10 minutes away using the house motorcycle.

Owner's reply: Thanks Paul I am glad you enjoyed your stay, I hope you will come back again.
