What Past Guests Are Saying
The Hawaii Six
Great location. Private, secure, quiet, convenient...perfect!
What a terrific vacation! We were so pleased with the way we were greeted at the airport by Jedy and at the home by her husband Rizal !!!
We stopped by the super market in Tagbilaran on our way to the property for various groceries. Having a well stocked kitchen with modern appliances was important for us. We also enjoyed the comfy bedrooms.
It was a delight that everything worked. Hi-speed internet, large LCD TV with DVD and lots of movies, all kitchen appliances, the beautiful Euro style freshly refurbished bathroom, the cozy living and dining areas, and the bedroom aircons. We cooled the rooms when we were home, and they worked perfectly.
For touring, we did the Chocolate Hills(beautiful!) Butterfly farm, the Tarsier Preserve, and the Loboc River tour. For 75 bucks plus a healthy tip for our courteous and informative driver, it was a great day for the 6 of us.
For 50 bucks and tip we did the Panglao island tour including the caves at Hinagdanan, swimming and snorkeling at alona beach, a very nice stop over at the Bee Farm(one of the few places no fee was charged and no hassles by anyone).
We also enjoyed the $40 boat trip to Balicasag Island for amazing snorkeling. Be advised that a Municipality Fee is charged ($1 per person as well as a boat fee to paddle you to the snorkeling site of about $5 per person)
Just minutes away by walk is a wonderful massage parlor with excellent local masseuses...at about $12(tip included) We went back 3 more times!
Lots of nearby Sari-Sari stores to buy snacks, water, sodas and such, and a 5 minute trike ride got us back to any number of nice beaches The island was uncrowded and peaceful...a far cry from Boracay.
With warm aloha,
Gary Cyndie George Linda Barney and Cora
PS note: We had the pleasure to meet Vincent for a very nice dinner the night before we left...first rate chap! Aloha!

Hello Gary just want to say thank you so much for really looking after our property and being so kind to our staff. Best review ever thank you so so much we all hope to see again one day. God bless you all...
A Perfect Choice.
Many tourists are now preferring to rent a holiday home, more romantic if a couple and often more practical if a larger group, this villa offers great flexibility whatever your choice.
Situated in a private secluded location near to Panglao Church the villa stands detached in it's own ample grounds along a 20 metre drive from a side road yet withing walking distance to local stores and the church.
The property has been thoughtfully designed and tastefully decorated with a wonderful feeling of space and comfort. Vast living area with dining table and soft seating at the other end around a super satellite tv with an incredible library of Dvds and first class air con. The Kitchen/Breakfast room is sumptuously eqipped, modern gas hob and new oven under, massive fridge and all the culinary gear you could wish for. Two good double bedrooms plus a twin bed with bunk, bath with shower over. Secend bathroom/wc and washroom adjoining the villa. Outside is a large terrace with dining table and chairs, lawned area, sunbeds and badminton court (raquets/volleyball provided), pool table also.
Complete security included and a truly marvellous lady called Jedy who will organise anything for you including transport, tours and a very cheap laundry service, she's a star!
I loved the villa and it obviously does well as very little accommodation of this size on the island. Alona Beach is ten minutes drive, Island City Mall in Tagbilaran is handy for food etc and the owners provide a free shuttle service for pick up and departure.
Very good value indeed and a very smooth no hassle booking service. Wifi among the fastest and most reliable experienced in the Phils.

Perfect for those looking for peace and quiet!
My party and I (4 adults) had a very enjoyable stay at the Panglao Villa. Jedy, the property manager, was extremely helpful and accommodating! She arranged for all our transportation needs, from private car drivers to boat reservations for island hopping, even working miracles when we asked for a seaport pickup at the last minute. She would also stop by in the evenings to make sure we were okay. Orlan, the guard, was also instrumental in making us feel at home, answering the many questions we had about the local area. The property itself was very clean and well maintained, we found it more spacious than the impression given by the pictures. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking ware, more than enough to produce a home cooked meal. The bathroom was cleanly, with adequate hot water as well. We were absolutely delighted to have wifi in the villa! What impressed us the most was how peaceful our stay was; the villa is situated far enough from the larger roads and tourist traps to be a quiet retreat, but we did not feel isolated and had easy access to nearby resorts and beaches. All in all, a terrific stay, and a place I would readily recommend to anyone planning to visit Bohol/Panglao!
Past total 6 nights there. Very comfortable, with big chicken, living room and especially the large garden.
Everyone of my family enjoy it.
The pritty disadavantage is the aircon in bedroom is a little bit noisy when sleeping.

Hello I am the owner Mr white sorry to here about the aircon being a bit noisy nothing was said about this when the guest was at the Villa. Anyway thank you for letting us know, we will look into this and try our best to make them as silent as possible. I guess the big chicken is the kitchen.
Thank you so much for your review as they help us to improve our accomadations.

Excellent holiday destination at Panglao Villa
The villa was perfect for our family holiday. There was space for the children to lounge around, great DVD collection and decent a/C in the bedrooms. Walled garden meant that we knew where they were at all times. Its all beatifully maintained. The villa is about 5K away from alona beach (best diving shops) but I never had a problem getting a 30 peso backie on a motorbike or a 50 peso ride in a tricycle at any time of the day or night. Panglao village seems to be a very quiet spot and we were bemused as to why the villa needed a 24hr guard, however, the guards wife is available for 200 pesos a day to wash your clothes, shop, cook meals if you like and tidy up for you. She is worth it. There is some OK sandy beach nearby Panglao Villa but my family tended to travel to the Bohol beach club each day for their raked sand beach, palm trees and choice of pools, 250 peso day membership. We were very well looked after from collection right the way through to dro p off at the Tagbillaran airport. Downsides Double bed was a bit soft for my liking, no guest file of suggestions for family outings, only 1 bistro restaurant in walking distance from the villa. All in all this is a place that we could recommend to our friends.
Response from Vincent White - 07/06/2010
We have now put a list in the Villa of places to visit as day trips plus if you walk 5 mins futher along the beach there is three beach resorts that do food, I have now put a map in the villa so guest know how to find them.
A Wonderful Stay and accommodations!
We truly enjoyed our stay at the Villa! The beautiful grounds and surroundings gave it a real comfortable feel, much better than the hustle and bustle found at most resorts. The staff was excellent and Jedy, the property manager, went above and beyond in ensuring all our needs were taken care of. The location is good for those who want to avoid the crowds and who don't mind traveling a bit to get to local attractions (whether groomed beaches, or other sites on Panglao or Bohol). Local transportation was easily accessible if needed and it was also easy to find our way around with the use of a rental car. We would definitely recommend the Villa to others travelling to Bohol, and would use it again ourselves! A wonderful vacation!
