We put up a Nipa Hut (Bahay Kubo) next to our house for purposes of relaxation, some fresh air, or entertain relatives and friends who visit us. We would like to share the same space to other travelers who prefer simple, 'native' non air-conditioned accommodation.
The space is made out of indigenous materials (bamboo and nipa) with small porch complete with table and bench for relaxation. There is one room with built-in bamboo bed covered with mattress for added comfort. Bed sheet, pillow, blanket, and mosquito net included (we do insect spraying but since mosquitoes can penetrate small spaces between bamboo, using a net assures protection from vector-borne diseases)
Added amenities include cable TV, ceiling fan, personal ref, and stand fan inside the room. Bathroom is shared at the main house including kitchen if you prefer to cook own food. You can stay here and live like we do, observe and adapt to local culture if you may. In some places, they call it 'home stay'.
If you prefer air-conditioned accommodation, we may allow access to our 'guest room' at the main house if vacant. Tell us. We would like to make your stay as comfortable to your desire.
Guests can have free access to garage parking for 1 car, use of kitchen and bathroom at the main house. Free wi-fi is available 24/7. Children up to 6 years old no extra charge if stay on same bed. There's added charge for extra mattress.
We are non-smoker, we expect our guests to refrain from cigarette smoking while inside the premises for safety and health reasons.
Interaction with guests
We stay at the main house. Guests can see us anytime for query or any concern. We will be more than happy to hear from you. If we are out, house help or care taker can do favor to assist guest.
Other things to note
We can provide food / meal to our guests, just tell in advance what you wanted to be prepared. From budget to what you have in mind, our chef can deliver a palatable meal at reasonable cost.
No Smoking inside the compound. Stay safe and sound.
Travel is our passion. My wife and I love the beautiful valleys and mountains, fresh air, calmness of lakes and rivers, awesome sunrise & sunsets, fine white-sand beaches and crystal clear sea waters. We explore caves & falls and see other natural wonders as we marvel as well on man-made development and modern architecture and design.
I can survive either in the forest or cities, and adaptable to varied conditions i am into ... a backpacker to fine dining and luxury. Hit me !
