“Looking rather tired and dated.”
Reviewed 8 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

people found this review helpful

Four of us stayed in the smaller house last weekend. The owner arranged for our travel from Manila which was great and made it so easy. We arrived by boat Friday evening and were greeted by the friendly staff. We had arranged for the staff to make us dinner which was helpful as there was nowhere close by to eat.
Don't confuse the two different houses. The house on the waters edge is the older, smaller house. It is only really large enough for one family or two couples (as in our party). The view from the bedroom upstairs is amazing with six huge glass doors that all open up onto a small deck. The shared outside lounge area is nice, comfortable enough for four people. there is also an indoor lounge that we didn't use.
Ok so it was nice to have someone cook and shop for us and the location was wonderful. The staff were nice and when asked for an extra towel I got it.
Here is what was not so good. The only way to cool down was fans, no air-con. There was no pool to jump into so we just melted in the heat....the waters edge was full of debris and seaweed.
The house looked dated and needed a good clean. The mosquito net above the bed needs replacing, We couldn't use the window blinds so it felt like sleeping in a goldfish bowl. The shower was terrible, and we're not sure why there was a big bin of water in the shower .... is it for when the toilet gets blocked (?) The floors all needed a good sweep and everything in the indoor lounge was dusty.
The house has so much potential and when it was built it was probably amazing but it feels like it has been somewhat neglected. With some updating, new furnishings and a clean...oh and even some air-conditioning in the bedrooms the house would be a more comfortable place to stay.

“The Eden”
Reviewed 18 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed 1 week in Ocean Villa during August 2016.
There are no words to describe the Villa. It's simply wonderfull! The view is amazing, you can have an incedible snorkeling at 5 minutes of boat from the Villa, the food is great... It's the best place if you need a relaxing time.
And the staff... is amazing!
Thanks to Suzie, Chat and all the others, you are really great!

“perfect location for a weekend away with a group of friends”
Reviewed 19 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We stayed with 9 friends in the larger villa. A perfect fit. Enjoyed the superb service of your staff: great breakfast, solid bbq-ing, fruits and of course beers whenever we wanted.

The location is ideal, we were picked up at the Berberate pier and brought straight to the villa. From the villa's it is a 20 minute walk or a 5 minute motorcycle ride to the bars and restaurants of Sabang.

We chartered the owners sailing boat for a few hours, great boat, good wind, experienced captain and deck hands, who could ask for more?

“Amazing view and wonderful staff”
Reviewed 5 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Stayed from December 28. until January 1.
If you choose to pay optional 500p / day for house keeper you dont really have to leave the property. She will arrange and cook food according your wishes as well as help with booking tricycle, jeepney, tours, ect.. As agreed she did some beverage shopping upfront and arranged sandwich when we arrived. All in all a wonderful stay and I would not mind to extend a week or two :)

Not a biggie but 7 towels to share for 11 people in 4 days is not enough - luckily fans in beedroom managed the drying job after shower :) No AC by the way but fan in all rooms was enough. Dont know how it works in summe time. You need to go by overpriced tricycle if you want to go somewhere for dinner or shopping as its quite remote location. Bit of a hassle for a larger group.
Met the owner Alan and Suzie, thanks to both of you for good communication, tips and advise.

Hi Klaus,

Apologies about the towels. You could have just asked and the staff would have given you more towels. Might have been an oversight on their part. Or let us know.

Regards,

Suzie
