Merry Meet! Thank you for your interest in our home. We have hosted people from around the world who came as guests and left as friends. We are looking forward to hosting you, too!
Below is a quick guide of our place. These are things that you need to know to consider our home for your escapade on the island of Boracay. Please don’t hesitate to ask us if there is anything that we were not able to cover here.
WHAT WE OFFER
A Fan Room with a private terrace; one of the two attic rooms that we offer. It has a partial view of the picturesque ocean.
The villa is a three-storey structure and has a common external staircase. The fan room is located on the third floor and has its own main door.
1. Electricity and water bills
3. Fresh towels and complete bedding
4. Basic toiletries
5. Free transfer from the Boracay jetty port to our place if you’re staying for more than 5 nights
6. Free one hour massage for the main guest for a one-week stay
7. Free 3-hour island hopping adventure worth PhP2,000-3,500 for a three-week stay or longer
HOW MANY PEOPLE THIS PLACE CAN ACCOMMODATE
ADDITIONAL PERSONS AND EXTRA CHARGE
We want everyone to be comfortable, so we will only allow an addition of one (1) more person but only if he/she is a child. We will not charge anything for your child below 12 years old.
WHO WE CATER TO
We open our home to free-spirited, adventurous, fun and good-natured people. If you do not require to be surrounded by concrete walls and the usual comforts that overpriced accommodations offer then our home is the right place for you.
Our place is for people who love to party and who want a quiet place after a long day/night.
Most importantly, this place is for you if you are the kind who does not mind being away from the madding crowd of the White Beach but still have easy access to it.
WHAT OUR BATHROOMS ARE LIKE
Funny as it may seem but we have been asked what our bathrooms are like. Ours is a modern bamboo house equipped with modern conveniences. Our bathrooms are of Western standards with hot and cold shower. We don’t have a bath tub in our Tambisaan Villa. The entire sea (which is just a few steps away) is your tub.
WHAT ABOUT BREAKFAST AND MEALS?
Breakfast is not included in your rental fee. We are a homeschooling family who fly back and forth between locations and we can’t commit to having the time to cook for our guests all the time. But when we’re on the island, we love to cook for our guests. We will really take the time to get to know you as much as possible.
Tambisaan is not a highly commercialized area so there is only one Korean restaurant along the beach and a few eateries that offer very cheap but tasty local food.
There is a guy who lives downstairs who can cook delicious meals for you at a low price. Just ask for Sho and discuss with him what kind of dish you want. Please arrange it with him ahead of time because he has to go to the market to get fresh ingredients for you. Some guests have done the marketing on their own and just requested Sho to cook it for them for a minimal fee.
There are motorized rickshaws (or what is known in the Philippines as tricycles) and motorbikes available. Drivers usually wait at the end of the beach for passengers especially when boats dock at the Tambisaan Jetty Port. During quieter seasons, transportation is still not a problem.
There are two kinds of trips and it is best that you understand both. They are the individual and special trips.
An “individual trip” means the driver will take on other passengers and you will only pay the regular price of PhP20/person ($0.44 or 0.33 Euro) to the center of Boracay (D’Mall) from Tambisaan Beach. Going back will be the same fee.
A “special trip” means it will be a chartered trip and you will be charged a little more at PhP100/trip ($2.2 or 1.63 Euro) to and from Tambisaan Beach. If there are 4 of you the trip is still Php100. For 6-7 people (the maximum capacity for a tricycle) the driver will ask for a little bit more.
• ASSISTANCE WITH TRANSPORTATION
If you need assistance with the transportation, you can call our assistant, Jonah, to call a tricycle for you. She can easily contact somebody to pick you up so you can just sit at home and wait for them to tell you that your ride is there. Please understand though that this kind of arrangement is considered a special trip so it will cost you PhP100/trip (for up to 4 people), not per person....Read more

Additional Location Information
We are not in any of the 3 Stations at the White Beach. There is a 10-minute distance between Tambisaan Beach and D’Mall, which is considered the center of Boracay. The map of Airbnb is accurate and we request that you check it first before you book to manage your expectations about where we are in Boracay. We chose Tambisaan for our home because it evokes rural charm that other areas do not have anymore with all the massive constructions that have taken place over the years.
Tambisaan Beach can get very busy when there are strong winds at the Cagban Jetty Port, hence the boats dock at Tambisaan. The Tambisaan Jetty Port is one of the two jetty ports in Boracay. Depending on which season you will come, you may either experience a lively beach or a very quiet one.
Please consider that there is no such thing as a perfect weather forecast on the island as well. Weather can be a hit or miss kind of situation, but whatever the case is, Boracay will always have a reason for you to be happy!
