About this listing
This is the dream cottage of romantics. It has a queen size bed with a kulambo, a kitchenette and a breakfast nook that overlooks the garden of Balai La-Hi. Sheets and towels are provided.
The traveler's cottage is part of Balai' La-Hi, a private sanctuary by the sea in Barrio San Rafael (a short walk from the Cawit Port in Boac, Marinduque). There is nothing here except the sound of waves, birds chirping, leaves rustling in the wind, and sea vessels coming and going. Everything about this place is homey, natural and honest.
Do you need a quiet place to run away to? Are you tired of the city? Or maybe you merely want to spend undistracted quality time with a loved one ? The Traveler's cottage was created for such :) Come and experience bucolic bliss and home cooking that will bring back wonderful memories, where the wifi may be weak but real conversations are unforgettable.
Delightfully, Balai La-Hi is not all there is to the island province of Marinduque. It is also a historic province whose towns date back to the Spanish era. For mountain lovers, there's a majestic Volcano called Malindig you can climb and wild forests you can hike. For bikers, there are well paved roads running along pristine coastlines as well as unbeaten paths into the "ilayas" of each barrio. But ! Most wonderful about this place are the cheerful barrio folk you will surely get to know .
Once a part of the province of Batangas, Marinduque is called the "heart of the Philippines" because it is indeed geographically at the heart of the archipelago and shaped like one. Maybe thats why it is also consistently awarded the most peaceful province in the Philippines.
You may hang in the garden and the beach :)
