Long story short -- I thought this was too good to be true, but it surpassed my expectations. The owners go out of their way to help save you money, and make sure you have the best possible time. I would go back in a heartbeat. Prices are extremely reasonable and the service is superb.

I visited the villa with my girl friend and two friends. It was amazing. We were met by Herwig at the airport with a van that took us to the supermarket to buy food for our trip. 2 hours later after a bit of a bumpy ride (dirt/rock road) through the rain forest we arrived at their beautiful villa. The beds were comfortable, the drinks were very very reasonable and the food was amazing. We planned on cooking our own food, but once we tasted the cooking, the 350php/meal price was simply too good to turn down.
We celebrated my girl friend's birthday there and Herwig and Theresa made sure it was memorable with a BBQ on the beach, and an amazing dinner on the view deck with 3-4 courses of amazing food.

Oh, and don't count on being connected to the world - no power during the day and definitely no internet or tv. A great place to get away from everything.

“An AMAZING slice of paradise!”

We visited the Amazing villa in January 2014 with a group of friends (10 of us in total, all teachers aged between 25 and 38) and had an incredible time. Herwig, Theresa and the staff were totally warm, welcoming and helpful in every way.

When we arrived at the villa we were blown away by how beautiful it was. It has stunning gardens, beautiful animals and great facilities. Every room in the villa was airy, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. All rooms have ensuite and are beautifully decorated. There is also a weights room, indoor dining room, outdoor dinning area, bar, sun terrace and yoga platform.

Shortly after our arrival we were given complementary rum and cokes. Herwig is a genius behind the bar and has an extensive range of delicious cocktails. Drinks are incredible value for money and it was easy to enjoy a refreshing drink at any time of the day.

I was blown away by the quality of the food here. Theresa used fresh organic ingredients all picked from her garden. The meat comes from their livestock and the fish is locally caught. All of the meals were cooked over an open fire and utterly delicious. The meals ranged from beef casserole to local fish dishes and were honestly some of the best meals I have ever eaten.

On two occasions when we were down at the beach and swimming in the river, Theresa offered to come to us and do a lunch time BBQ. Both times also armed with coolers full of beer, cocktails and soft drinks…… AMAZING!

As far as location goes this place is a dream. Luckily, the road to the villa is not yet finished, meaning that the villa is free from tourism and a completely natural, un-spoilt, environment. Below the villa (a couple of minutes walk) is a private, white sand beach and warm stretch of sea. Up above the villa are untouched rainforests, fresh water mountain springs and a lot of very clean and very fresh air. Surrounding the beach is a palm tree paradise that wouldn’t be out of place on a postcard.

All of this combined with a villa that most people would only dream of staying in leads you to think that you must of either won the lottery or you are a film star in your own private getaway.

The villa also has a paddleboat, snorkeling equipment, beach games and equipment (Frisbee, badminton etc.) and they even have local remedies for you to use if you get bitten by mosquitoes or alike.

One of the best things about this accommodation is that Herwig and Theresa really made us feel like we were on holiday. Honestly, they could not do enough to make us feel comfortable and relaxed during our stay. They are also, super nice, interesting people who are great to chat to over a glass of rum and coke on a hot and sunny day.

In short, if you are thinking of visiting the amazing villa, please do!

Thank you to everyone at the Amazing villa for making our holiday such an unforgettable experience.

Thank you so much for your very nice review. Very few things feel as good as being able to share your passions and the things you value in life with people who truly appreciate it and respond so enthusiastically. Theresa is flattered and says thank you for inspiring her to cook with all her heart. You were a great group of wonderful people. Thanks for choosing our place and know that we will welcome you back as friends any time.

This was my absolute dream holiday. Heirwig and theresa are FANTASTIC hosts. They are genuinely concerned for your wellbeing and do everything they can to ensure you have a fantqstic stay! The locqtion is a once in a lifetime locqtion with beautiful white stetches of privqte beach. The rooms are clean, tidy and comfy with sea breeze flowing through them. Apart from the superb location, the food was an absolute highlight. Theresa is the worlds best cook, using orgnanic veges, spices and fresh meat to produce meals with flavors you can only dream of. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone! It was probably one of the best holidays of my life!
