The SpaceThe space may be small but it's real homey. My dad takes care of a couple of fowls plus his garden, seriously. You'll love the ambiance. We retained the original contents of house so we can share the experience. There are books and musical instruments that can be borrowed. We even have karaoke (videoke) for a minimal fee. Please take care of our things as you would your own.
There are 2 rooms, one with a single, and the other with a double bed, hence 3 guests. If you are more than 3 in your party, we can provision mattresses for you plus the common room couch, but 3 pax is most ideal for comfort. We're happy to accommodate more guests but not in the expense of your comfort. We'd like your experience to be the best!
People are free to camp as well, especially when it gets cold in the night. Normally, guests do in the garden or in the roof deck. If you plan on doing this, please bring your own tents and sleeping bags. Guest Access- Private kitchen and dining with refrigerator, cookware, and basic utensils
- Private sitting area (living room), with wifi
- Feel free to roam around the lot area and bring out the nature lover in you!
- Free parking as the area can accommodate up to 5 cars (2 in the garage and 3 lined up in the driveway) Interaction with GuestsMy dad is retired and is staying in the other half of the duplex home. You'll have complete privacy but should you need him for anything, he'll be happy to help. He jams really well too, so if you would like to feel like you're in a band for just a day, just let him know! The NeighborhoodThe neighbors are all family. The entire mountainside is in fact inheritance from about 2-3 generations from mine. We love our heritage. Getting AroundParking is available. Public transportation is about 5 min walk. You can either ride a tricycle (to any point in Mabini), or jeepneys (to Talaga or Gasang, or the other side in Anilao).
We can help you get private transportation for a minimal cost, yours to use for the entire day, gas and driver included. Other Things to NoteThere are lots of things to do in Mabini! Here are just some of items:
- Trek Mt. Gulugod Baboy
- Drive around the Mabini Circumferential Road
- Go swimming in Anilao (or snorkeling, diving, parasailing, etc)
- Visit Sombrero Island
- Ride a boat to Tingloy Island
My dad can help you get to boat operators/owners (mostly family as well), if you plan to go to sombrero island or Tingloy, and point you to the best diving resorts in Anilao. He can drive you to the jump-off for the Mt. Gulugod Trek, or even just go round the Mabini Circumferential Rd. Private transportation can be arranged for a (daily) fee.
The place is just a block away from a vintage Catholic Church, 10-min walk to the beach (Brgy. Bulacan), 5-min walk to the Mabini Municipal Hall and Mabini Police Station, which happens to have ATMs too, and most importantly, near the wet and dry markets (10-min walk) to address any last minute shopping needs. Nearby shops include, flower shop, massage/spa, covered basketball court, town plaza (free wifi), barbershop/salon, bakeries, drugstores, and 24 hr burger joints. Mabini now also happens to have a 7-11 branch.
