Host Info

Host Review Score

Our guesthouse is one of the few El Nido properties that is actually seaside. It is built from mainly native materials (wood and bamboo) to give it an authentic Filipino look. We recently renovated our seaside deck to include 3 levels; main, upper, and lower.
My wife Cristina and I are one of the few owner-occupied guest houses because we truly giving our guests the best possible service. I was a triathlete and now a long distance swimmer and so like to promote an active lifestyle to our guests. That is why we offer kayaks and stand up paddle boards.
One of the most interesting features about our location is that we are not part of the tourist district but part of an authentic fisherman's village. We support the local day care center and buy 200 Christmas gifts for the local children.
