The description of the former "casa paradiso" from vanessa attracted us very much, so we decided to book the house for nearly 4 weeks.
It was important for us to have a little service specially after arriving the place ( after a trip with more than 24 hours of travel ) - so we asked if it could be possible to have some cooking assistance and/or some basics in the kitchen when we arrive. - This was promised from the owner.
As well as we knew that it is difficult to reach s.th. from there without a boat us was guaranteed that we will find one and there will be not any problem to reach e.g. Looc ( next market over the bay/20 minutes boattrip) anytime we want. Additional we expected a calm place which is clean.
All in all the casa paradiso was revealed in a different light if you have a view on the things we got: 1) there was nothing in the kitchen at all - only drinking water, thank you for that ! - and the woman who gave us some shopping help in Looc before we had the ride to the house said at the arrival at the house: - "no - i am not willing to cook for you" so we where left in the rain ..., 2.) accessibility. There is no boat. There are fishers you can ask if they are willing to bring you if they have time - and they charge php 400 - 500 for a trip, which is a fortune on Tablas. 3.) The house is in a small village and not standing alone as the pictures pretend. In general this not a problem, but ... it is a national sport to have fighting cocks in those small villages and these cocks are starting to crow around 1:00 pm and are motivating the dogs to join with barking ... and this lasts until 4 or 5 in the morning - so bring better some ear plugs with you... 4.) internet access was important for us and it was told that we would have WiFi. No WiFi at all - the mobile Internet connection is mor san little poor, if you have luck twice a day with a bandwith of 2-3 Kb/s ( - if you have relied on this WiFi statement and you find such a reality, you are really pissed. ) 5.) Bathing / swimming at the "beach" is only possible within flood ( which is approx 2-3 hrs a day) - in other times you have to walk over dead coral reef until you reach s.th. like a possibility to dip in ... Last not least we found to much cockroaches even for phillipean circumstances. The good thing was: Vanessa refunded our paid booking for the days we left ahead of shedule. - Additionally there was a construction site directly aside of the house which made the stay additionaly uncomfortable - Vanessa agreed with that fact and the rest sum was back wired after some time, thanks.
Summarized we were in particular annoyed about wrong information and incorrect presentation. - If you are a backpacker with very low standards and you can handle the situation to feel trapped in a bad accessibility it could be a place for you. For us is was not. We found a nice place on binucot beach what we can recommend.
