Lovely Studio 3 Minutes to Boracay's White Beach
Boracay, Visayas, Philippines
Additional Location Information
A. Caticlan is a small airport 20 minutes from Boracay. There are domestic flights from Manila, Cebu and Clark. A motorized trike will take you to the Jetty Port, less than five minutes away. This is definitely the preferred airport for ease and convenience.
B. Kalibo is a larger airport 90 minutes from Boracay. There are some international flights and it can accommodate larger jet airplanes. An air-conditioned van service can take you from Kalibo Airport to Caticlan Jetty Port for PHP200 or you can take an open air jeepney for PHP65.
Airlines that serve Caticlan and Kailbo from Manila/ Cebu are as follows:
The Strong Nautical Highway is both an overland route and a series of Roll-on/Roll-off ferries. The trip is 12-16 hours with stopovers and dependent on sea conditions. It is locally known as RORO Boracay route.
(A/C bus PHP1,500)
Land Manila--Batangas (2-3 hours)
Sea Batangas--Calapan (2-3 hours)
Land Calapan-- Roxas (2-3 hours)
Sea Roxas-- Caticlan (3-4 hours)
1. Caticlan Airport to Caticlan Port- After getting out of the small airport, there will be a line-up of motor tricycles. The ride costs PHP50-PHP80 per trike for the five minute trip to the port.
2. Caticlan Port to Boracay Port- The Jetty Port has Bangka pump boats that ferry between Caticlan mainland and Boracay Island from sunrise to sunset. There are sometimes ferries after dark, but not so reliable. The Bangka trip is PHP25, however, non-residents on top of this also pay environmental fee at PHP75 and terminal fee at PHP50. You need to get these tickets at ticket counters outside before you can enter the Jetty Port. The trip from the Mainland to the island is about 15 minutes. If you need assistance with your luggage, porters are available to assist. Be ready to pay PHP20 per item tip.
Depending on the season, you will arrive at one of two Boracay Ports- Cagban Port in the High Season and Tambisaan Port in the Low Season.
3. Boracay Port to Greenpoint Residences- Upon reaching Cagban or Tambisaan, take one of the Motor tricycles to Greenpoint Residences. Tell the driver "Angol Road, sa Greenpoint Residences po, bago mag Plaza" (which loosely translates to "To Angol Road, at Greenpoint Residences before we reach the Plaza".) Travel time takes about 10-15 minutes and fare cost is no more than PHP100 per way for a chartered tricycle to bring you all the way to Greenpoint Residences on Angol Road.
Boracay Island is located off the northwest corner of Panay Island, and belongs to the Western Visayas island-group, or Region VI, of the Philippines. The island is approximately seven kilometers long, dog-bone shaped with the narrowest spot being less than one kilometer wide, and has a total land area of 10.32 square kilometers.
South-facing Cagban Beach is located across a small strait from the jetty port at Caticlan on Panay island, and the Cagban jetty port serves as Boracay's main entry and exit point during most of the year. When wind and sea conditions dictate, east-facing Tambisaan Beach serves as an alternative entry and exit point.
Boracay's two primary tourism beaches, White Beach and Bulabog Beach, are located on opposite sides of the island's narrow central area. White Beach faces westward and Bulabog Beach faces eastward. The island also has several other beaches.
White Beach, the main tourism beach, is about four kilometers long and is lined with resorts, hotels, lodging houses, restaurants, and other tourism-related businesses. In the central portion, for about two kilometers, there is a footpath known as the Beachfront Path separating the beach itself from the establishments located along it. North and south of the Beachfront Path, beachfront establishments do literally front along the beach itself. Several roads and paths connect the Beachfront Path with Boracay's Main Road, a vehicular road which runs the length of the island. At the extreme northern end of White Beach, a footpath runs around the headland there and connects White Beach with Diniwid Beach.
Bulabog Beach, across the island from White Beach, is the second most popular tourism beach on the island and Boracay's main windsurfing and kiteboarding area.

Property is very close to the white beach by the station3 ( 2-3 min walk ) . we think that this is the best part of the beach as is not as busy as the station one or two. Ron is excellent host and he will help you with anything you need . Studio is big , you can find flat tv, internet, apple tv, safety box ect.. aircondition new and quiet. Very easy access to town and other areas. we would definitely stay there again !!!
its really great and amazing place

A place that feels like home
We visited the lovely Studio with 3 people and we really had a great time. Not only the appartment was very good, but the owner Ron really took great care of us.
He showed us around, gave us some tips what to do and how and most of all he was very friendly and helpful. I got on my legs a terrible sunburn and he took for us the medicines and also came to treat it like he was the doctor himself. He really made us feel like home!
The appartment was also in good condition, just like in the pictures. It had all you could wish for in a good appartment. We would recommend this place and Ron to everyone who would like to have a perfect holidays in Boracay. And the beach is inded 3 minutes walk!
Great location, nicely decorated, wonderful host!
I spent 3 weeks in Boracay, and all of them I stayed in this tastefully decorated studio. I would recommend this apartment to everyone including my best friends. The reasons are - best location and the best host!
Ron helped me just from the beginning, gave me a tour around the island explaining where I can exchange money, buy cheaper and nicer food, places to go etc. He was always there when I had some questions or small problems. All in all my vacation wouldn't be so smooth if Ron is not there.
As for location, though we like to party and the bars♣ are near the station 1 and 2 it was still a perfect location. As the beach is more beautiful and not that crowded in the station 3. And it is always nice to have a walk in the evening to the night clubs location. If you don't want to walk tricycle is only 10 pesos/person and 5-7 min from the studio to the Dmall.
Anyway, if you stay in Boracay and want to feel there like at home - this studio should be your choice!

I had so much fun hosting for you and your friends- Elena (who I wished I spent more time with too) and, of course, Hari.
Sometimes passing by Summer Place walking on the beach, I smile remembering the crazy fun we had one night when we all went out together. That was one for the books !!! I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
Missing you guys already. Till next time.
All the best,

My family and I had just spent the most amazing weekend in Boracay Island. We stayed in Greenpoint Residences on angol Road. The studio apartment is very cozy, beautiful and different from anywhere else. The design and details take you to an overall experience you won't forget. It's like being in Paradise with still the familiar comforts of home and the city. It's well-located and it's got easy access to everything, rather 2 minute walk to the breathtaking white beach and 5 to 10 minute walk to restaurants, spas, shopping center, ATM and the market. It's just a perfect place to stay.
The host Ron is very accommodating. He took us to Mt. Luho via the electric jeep to see the panoramic vista of the island, even walked us to a cove that is only 10 minute walk from the apartment where my boys enjoyed making sand castles and playing with white crabs. He made our Boracay experience delightful and unique. I'll definitely stay only at Greenpoint Residences No. 6 when we go back to the Boracay Island. Highly recommended.

A home away from home!!!
My husband and I stayed in Boracay for 7 days so we needed a home. Staying in this Lovely Studio made our first time visit to Boracay a pleasant vacation. It's walking distance to the beach. Nearby restaurants and shopping area. I like the peace and quiet after a long night of partying :). The owner, Ron Rosel is very friendly and accomodating to our needs. This is definitely our place to stay next time we visit... hopefully soon!

You're most welcome to stay with us again here.

Great service and Ron was an excellent host. Elegantly decorated and maintained in excellent condition. Enjoy your stay!
This lovely studio exceeded all of our expectations. The manager was great to us, as was really helpful. We found the property to be well located, in a quite safe area.The decor and furnishings are very pleasing and the place is very comfortable.The air-conditioning and TV systems worked great and the wifi was super fast. Everything was as advertised, plus! Highly recommended.
An awesome treat of fun, sun, sand and indulgence of a private r
Our stay at Greenpoint made my memories of Boracay "picture-perfect” both on shore and inside our lovely sun-kissed inspired room.
It's the first of May,holiday, another excuse to be reunited with the beach so off we flew down south. We rented the place for three nights and liked it so much we extended for two more nights. We were just passing through angol Point, searching for another place to stay, when we found Greenpoint. The room we've booked with the previous resort was different from what's posted online. Worse, it's not well-maintained. Felt like the staff assume visitors would just spend their time outdoor and just doze their night off without actually minding the creepy state of an old room.
It was wise of us to have left and discovered Greenpoint! I was amazed by how the furnishings were meticulously designed to achieve such exquisite simplicity. It's like the fun and pleasures of the beach found their way inside our room through the lighting, sun-kissed palette interior, sleek outdoor-inspired table and chairs, comfy bed, and just the perfect room-size to enjoy all those details. Other amenities such as big screen TV, internet, and kitchen provide the familiar comfort of home as if it's our own vacation house.
Ron, the owner of Luxe Studio, is the most gracious host ever! He knows the island like the back of his hand and suggested that we check out the latest attractions in the island such as zipline at Fairways and Bluewater. But for first-timers, try not to miss the helmet diving, flying fish, paraw sailing, and Zorb. These all-time favorite ”to-do's” in Boracay are sure to give you a blast.
Greenpoint is a fresh addition to what makes Boracay worth revisiting. It offers no pretensions, simply a beauty complementing the splendor of Boracay waters and sand... an outright refuge away from the buzz of city life yet with the comfort and familiar feel of home. I'm definitely coming back!
