Living in the heart of a Filipino family in a local and exotic atmosphere is what this house offers you .

The space
Unique wooden house in a neighborhood of local fishermen .
Discovery of another culture and contacts with the entourage are required while having privacy and comfort.
Living in Palawan for 7 years, I would be happy to advise you on the activities to do on this Island, the good places to go and those to avoid as well as the expeditions to do off the beaten track in and out of the city, advice are always precious and will save you time in order to give your trip optimal conditions.
We also have a range of activities that we offer: Underground River / Honda Bay / firefly watching and exclusive tour on Puerto Princesa / Port Barton / El Nido / Balabac / San Vicente.
We can also organize transport to get everywhere on Palawan with a pick up from the "local house".

Guest access
Present in the house with my little boy and daughter , everyone has their privacy in a separate room but the rest of the house is a common place of exchange , sharing and discovery .

Other things to note
Our house is located near the sea and we have a dirt road of about 25 meters to access it, unfortunately this path can become slippery and muddy during the rainy season betweem july to december (if there is heavy rain) .
Many people and neighbors living nearby are also in this situation which is not insurmountable but deserves to be highlighted.
We offer travellers the opportunity to discover the local life and this inconvenience can be part of it, subject to heavy rain of course.
We prefer to inform travellers in advance of this detail and we thank you for your understanding.
