I came with my cousin and her 2 young city toddlers to immerse them in the simplicity of provincial living. The idea was to make them experience what we did during our summer holidays with no tv and internet, where we used our imaginations to entertain ourselves, make new friends and explore. The boys had a blast! Playing in the river, running after chickens (among other things) and playing pretend with their new friends. While my cousin and I cooled off from the intense summer heat with a glass of wine in the river. Mission accomplished! As a resident of Boracay, this gem of a place is such a refuge. An awesome respite from the party crowd/noise mixed in with the summer heat. It is a sanctuary, with its charming open/breezy cottages surrounded by nature and a shallow river bed and its refreshing spring water. Having gracious hosts, who served us fresh eggs from their flock of ducks and greens from their garden, was an added bonus not to mention great conversation.…
Basic accomodations with lots of charm! Stayed in the airconditioned cottage and it was perfect. It had a comfortable queen size bed as well as a twin. Just perfect for my mom, my niece and me. It also had a large bathroom with hot shower. The other cottages were occupied by my family. It was like living in our own quaint little rustic village... they had a couple of dogs and cats and some farm animals and vegetable gardens. The water in the river was pretty shallow but it was very clean. We enjoyed sitting in the water and gathering pretty river rocks. The food was very good. The cottages are not screened so there are bugs. They do provide mosquito nets which if tucked correctly should keep bugs away from you while you sleep.
The location is 15 min to the airport Caticlan and the same time span to the ferry port to Boracay. The area is well designed, the apartments are very charming and with lots of typical Filipino architecture. Everything was recently renovated. We felt super comfy, even though we just spend one evening due to our flight in the early morning. This location might be suitable for families and folks who like to relax from Boracay noise. Now to the host Nina. She was always super courteous, responsive and understood how to welcome guests. We really appreciate the evening and will keep it always in mind. Thanks again, Nina!
Came with big group of friends with families for birthday celebrations and I must say it was perfect...it is very serene with lots of activities and areas to roam around. Kids enjoyed the crystal clear river, camping out and communing with nature. The location is very convenient from Boracay Island and we all can't wait to go back so we're already planning for our next trip.
Only 15 minutes from Caticlan, it is the perfect place to refresh and unwind! We spent the whole weekend swimming in the river, eating amazing food, relaxing in the middle of lush vegetation. Waking up and jumping in the fresh river is my favorite part! This place makes you forget time. Perfect for those who love simple things, enjoy nature and quietness.
located ten minutes from Malay airport, beside a clear river, this property has several quaint native accommodations for rent. with a nice room with a view to the river. nice shower. its the best for a relaxing time after the heady parties of boracay which is 20 minutes away. its also close to Motag living museum. and a great area to hike to the forest.
