You can also ask for information or advise regarding practical things e.g. where to buy groceries, things to do, places to see, hiring a cab/motorcycle(for those who are not bringing their own transport). She does not live in the property so you are pretty much left alone. Interaction with GuestsGuest interaction is depending on guests preferences. In general we try to limit it to booking, meet and greet during key handling. The NeighborhoodThe neighborhood is safe and the bamboo fence around the property deters unauthorized entries. There is a sari-sari (convenient) store right in front of the house, across the road. The seashore is about 100meters away from the house. The Camiguin Polytechnic State College is about 300 meters away. Getting AroundLogistics: How do you get to our place? Arriving from Laguindingan airport: - Take a taxi to Gaisano mall parking area, there you will find door to door vans going to Camiguin. (Note: vans need pre-booking and reservations!) so inform us preferably 2days ahead and we will do the reservation for you. Departure time: 10am except on busy days the van could opt to leave early. Service is door to door for Php475 and they will literally drop you off outside the gate. If bringing own transport: - Drive to Balingoan port in Misamis Oriental and from there take the barge which will take you to Benoni, Camiguin. From Benoni drive Southwest bound to Catarman. Our place is in Alga, a barangay before the Catarman town proper. Nearest landmark is the Camiguin Polytechnic State College which is situated up on the hill and about 300 meters ahead on the right side, is where the property is. From the Camiguin airport: - Hire a multicab for Php800 pesos or a motorela for Php500. We can also arrange pick-ups. The place is located along the circumferential road. At daytime public transport (tricycles/jeepneys) passes by at regular intervals however, towards the evening it gets sporadic and mostly stops around 7-8pm. The best transport mode to tour the island is to hire a multicab and or a motorcycle. If you need assistance, let us know. Other Things to NoteThere is weak mobile signal in the area. If you're lucky you can place your phone outside the window and you would be able to receive and send an sms. However, to get a stronger signal for calling and recieving calls, you would have to walk across the street. The house has a tv set but is not connected to the tv antenna nor cable yet. There is however a possibility to connect a usb/external drive and stream movies or music.
