Mod Studio 3 Minute Walk to Boracay's White Beach Boracay, Visayas, Philippines
Additional Location Information
Greenpoint Residences is right on Angol Road, part of Manoc Manoc, White Beach, boat station 3, considered the quiet and the not-so-crowded part of Boracay Island. From Cagban port or the alternative port Tambisaan, it is an easy 10-15 minute ride to Greenpoint Residences. You won't have to walk on the beach again searching for your hotel with your luggage in tow. Availing of the airport transport, we make sure to bring you straight up to the main gates of the apartment.
From the main gate of the apartment building, its an easy 3 minute walk left to White Beach or right up to main road for transport around the island. To the center in D'mall, it takes about 15-20 minute walk on the beach which is easily cut in half if you take the public transport.
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 bus/ van service can take you from Kalibo Airport to Caticlan Jetty Port for as low as PHP200. I recommend Southwest Tours Boracay for transfer from/ to Kalibo airport to Boracay
Airlines that serve Caticlan and Kailbo from Manila are as follows:
1. Caticlan Airport to Caticlan Port- After getting out of the small airport, there will be a line-up of motorised tricycles. The ride costs PHP50-PHP80 per trike for the five minute trip from the airport to Caticlan Jetty Port.
2. Caticlan Jetty Port to Boracay Port- The Jetty Port has bangka (outrigger) 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 PHP100. 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 10 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 (2) Boracay Ports- Cagban Port during 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 kilometres. 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. From Diniwid Beach, it's just a 5 min tricycle ride to get to Puka 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.

I ve spent my Holiday in Boracay and it was my second time there. I was looking for a nice place to stay and came across this cool place. The owner Ron was helpful and he assisted me from the booking up to the day i had to leave. He is taking good care of his guests. He goes out of his way to make sure his guests having everything they need to enjoy there vacation on the Island. The Studio is very nice and modern. there is even a kitchen and you can cook a delicouse meal and enjoy it there. The Studio is equiped with TV, Wifi, Aircondition, fan, fridge and bathroom with hot and cold water. You feel like home. Only a 2 minutes walk to the fantasic White Beach in Station 3. If I will go to Boracay again i will definitely stay in Greenpoint again.

“Great accommodation, great location”
I stayed at Greenpoint, Boracay recently and it couldn't have been a more pleasant stay. The room is spacious and spotlessly clean, with en suite and kitchen. Great to be able to cook in your own kitchen. Ron, the Manager, was there to welcome me and was always on hand to give any help or advice. Greenpoint is only a couple of minutes walk to White Beach which is absolutely beautiful and has a number of small bars and restaurants open to the beach. Highly recommended.

Dear John, It was a delight hosting for you. Thank you for taking the time to write a review about the apartment. You're most welcome to stay with us again next time. Cheers, Ron
I just can't describe how great was our stay at Ron's Mod Studio at Boracay! First of all we were really happy to find it because it was one of the few options on the island where you have all the needed facilities and still price is reasonable. When we made the booking it was very nice to learn that our host also included airport transfer for us complimentory. But this is not all, because when we arrived to Manila we learned that our flight to Boracay was cancelled, so we e-mailed Ron and he made sure our transfer still waited for us when we finally arrived to Caticlan. On our first night Ron also showed us around the White Beach and gave us tips about places like restaurants, spas etc., which proved to be really useful. The studio itself is just like on the photos, very nicely decorated with some fine touches, like aroma candles and fresh fruits and water waiting for us in the fridge, that made us feel really cared about. It has any comfort you might need, including a fully equiped kithen with a coffee machine and a blender for making fruit smoothies and an iPod dock station. The Green Point residence where the Mod studio is, is located in the quiet area at station three just a minute walk to the White beach. It is much less crowded than station two, where you sometimes feel like in the middle of a busy city, and has more reasonable priced dining options and spas. But the most amazing about the studio was our host Ron, who really became our friend during the stay! We were amazed how careing he was about every detail, when he cleaned the room he even wiped the screen of my iPad! And on our last day on Boracay he took us to a sightseeng trip around the island. When we booked this appartment we never expected it to be so great, so I want to thank Ron for making our stay so special and to reccomend anyone travelling to Boracay to book this studio!
Andrew & Kate
That was a unforgettable experience. We're very pleased with apartments and satisfied with service options. Special thanks to Ron Rosel for fastest Internet speed available. Strongly recommended to everyone!

To Andrey and Kate, thank you for taking care of the apartment as if it was your own. I am deeply honored that you chose to stay in my apartment for the remainder of your time on the island. You're welcome to stay with us again. All the best, Ron
“Great Studio, excellent condition, superb service, amicable host”
We stayed in Ron's studio for one week. The whole building is just about a year old; the studio is in pristine condition. Location is quite good, only two to three minutes from the beach at station 3, on a quiet side street. No noise from bars, hotels or other facilities. Small shop nearby, open almost all night long. Cooking utensils, some kitchen appliances as well as coffee and other necessities were provided for, the bathroom was stocked with clean towels, shower gel and other toiletries. Tv as well as Wi-Fi worked well, air-condition was powerful enough to cool down the room quickly. Lighting in the studio was good, only the bathroom was a bit dark. The cleaning service was excellent, they even folded my shirts, re-arranged the flowers, removed the Christmas decoration & set up new decorations. Even my laundry was taken care of at a cheap rate. Ron himself took good care of us, he arranged a really good deal for a private boat charter, showed us around the island and even dropped us off at the ferry port when it was time to fly back to Manila. Oh, and he even stocked the fridge with a couple of beers so that we had a nice cold one at arrival. All in all we had a really good time and will definitely come back. Anne & Arne
“Home away from home”
Ron's place is so well appointed, so clean, so tastefully decorated that it makes you feel at home. the Studio is just 3 mins walk to the quiet White Beach... If you want to go to a crowded beach is just a nice walk in the beach side or a quick ride in a tricycle... Ron is a great host and likes to make you feel at home. He will suggest the best spots to visit in the island. Great place to stay!

Dear Diego, Thank you for taking the time to review my apartment. I didn't get to see you during your stay but I've heard all nice things about you from Nelson. How, for example, you keep the apartment clean and in order that daily cleaning in the apartment during your stay wasn't necessary. And staying in contact with Nelson throughout, calling him to coordinate cleaning, and other requests made his work a lot easier and faster. You're most welcome to stay with us again. :-) All the best in 2013. Ron
“Long Weekend in Boracay”
Our stay in Ron's little condo was great. He went out of his way to make sure everything was taken care of all the time. He handled our transportations and even provided with suggestions on what to do each day. I came back early one day and found him cleaning the unit himself so he is a full service provider who wants to make sure it is all done right! The plce is not nmuch bigger than a nce hotel room but what more do you need, particularly when you add in the fact that it has a full kitchen. He provides all the emmenities as well (hair drier, coffee machine, blender, etc). Also it really is only a 3 minute walk to the beach. It is right at the emd of Station 3 but don't let that discourage you. You can walk to Sta 2 in about 20 minutes. I would definately use this place again. Ron, thank you for a wonderful stay. (He even got up at 5am to make sure we made our connection in the morning)!!

It wasn't exactly Gary's first time in Boracay. In fact, the last time he was on the island was just last February, so he knew better this time, booking an accommodation closer to where tourists, from all over, essentially are here for on the island, the beach... White Beach, that is. Gary seemed to be quite particular about what he wanted in terms of accommodation. Inquiring about availability in my apartment before arranging flights, etc, as soon as I confirmed availability for the Mod Studio, he booked it right there and then. With only 4 days on the island, thought I’d free him up from the hassle by pre-arranging airport transfer for him. Gary might just have been on the island over the long weekend, but he made sure to own every single moment of it. I appreciated Gary for keeping the apartment neat and in order at all times. It helped a lot that he packed lightly for the trip which made cleaning and putting back things in order fast and easy for me. To Gary, you’re most welcome to stay with us again! Cheers, Ron Mod Studio 11/08/12

“Two Months of Rest and Happiness”
Mod Studio is exactly as described on internet so you won't be disapointed.The home has all the comfort you can expect and is decorated with very good taste. The location in Station 3 is in the quiet part of Boracay that is good for the rest and not so far of Station 2 where the nightlife is. Ron, the owner is always taking care of your stay and take time to show you everything you have to know to enjoy your stay.As we stay for 6 weeks he help us in everything ,book flight,organise trip to others islands...The Mod Studio and his owner make your stay in Boracay as enjoying as possible.

It was by mere chance that I met the Arcamones almost a week after arriving on the island. They contacted me thru Flipkey after the apartment they originally booked (much to their dismay) turned out to be a sham, and while the apartments they’ve seen after they continued their search were not exactly to their liking. I was in Manila when I got their inquiry and was only scheduled to be back on the island a few days later. My apartment was available but nobody had the keys to show it to them. I appreciated the Arcamones waiting for my return to see the apartment and for deciding to stay with us. I also felt deeply honored when they decided to spend a few days off the island, choosing to fly out to Palawan (they could have just stayed in Boracay and easily find a place elsewhere on the island) while other guests, who booked the apartment months before them, stayed in their apartment, only to fly back to Boracay, to stay back in my apartment (after the other guests checked out), to finish off their 2 months on island before flying back home to France. It was such a pleasure hosting for the Arcamones. I am glad our paths crossed. To Christiane and Eric, you’re always welcome to stay with us again!!!

Let me start with how amazing Ron's apartment is. It is spotless clean, well-decorated (he decorates it himself!) and fully equipped. It has an awesome professional hair dryer (a super plus for us girls!), an iPod speaker dock that blasts high quality sounds, a flat screen tv/dvd, a collection of movies and music, spanking new and clean kitchen equipment, fresh linen, towels and the most comfortable bed and pillows that are on par to those of a 5-star luxury hotel standards! Another great plus was that it made us girls feel safe with the double locks at the door and the 24x7 friendly security man for the whole building. It is located so conveniently to Station 3 and practically a stone's throw away from the beach. I loved that it was located away from the crowded Station 2 and the quaint and laid back shops/bars at Station 3! Ron's awesome apartment has definitely well exceeded our expectations. We booked his apartment not knowing that it also came with our own personal tour guide and such an amazing host. From the first night as we arrived safely (thanks to Ron for arranging the airport transfer) till the early wee hours of the morning (4 am!) when we had to leave for our flight home, Ron never fail to be there for us. He personally brought us to the amazing beaches of Boracay, hidden spots, best views of Bora, super cool bars/clubs, awesome local food (!!), amazing coffee joints (speaking as a coffee junkie), local tricks and tips (for e.g. only pay 10-15 pesos for the tricycle aka trik!), and many many moreee... And it was such a sweet surprise to have him around because we didn't even plan any itinerary prior to our trip! He made our trip complete and worth the tiring 14-hour journey to Bora.I find no reason why anyone would not book his place for a vacation in Boracay. I'm sooo thankful that I did and grateful that our paths crossed. xoxo Noora
