STAFF HOUSE is set inland away from guest houses, consists of living area, 2 bedrooms each with 2 bunk beds, plus 2 bathrooms each with toilet and shower. For large groups of guests Staff House can be rented for additional cost while staff relocate to nearby accommodation. Guest AccessGuests have access to anywhere on the property. Cliff-top areas must be kept out of bounds for young children. Guests rent both houses, the beach and pool and all areas of the beach inland. Off limits are the staff house and generator house. Interaction with GuestsThe attraction of this kind of vacation property is for total privacy and solitude. The owner respects this. There will be no other guests staying at the same time. There are permanent security staff, service and maintenance personnel housed away from the beach and guest houses at the rear of the property. These friendly helpers can be called upon anytime when you need them! The NeighborhoodThis area is still amazingly undeveloped and beautifully natural. At night you hear only the waves lapping the beach, the chirping of crickets, and the breeze in the trees (depending on the time of the year, of course!). The nearest neighbors living in their traditional bamboo and palm-leaf houses are a 10 minute walk inland through the jungle. There are no cars, no artificial sounds. There is absolutely nothing and no-one here, except you - and if you like real, natural beauty, you'll totally love this! Getting AroundThe nearest city, Iloilo, is an hour's boat trip from our private beach jetty, or about an hour and a half by land - 20 min walk through the jungle to the small dirt road, a 45-min car journey to Jordan where you take a public ferry pump-boat to Ortiz, the city wharf with waiting taxis. You've got big shopping malls, good restaurants, nice bars, nice hotels, clubs and more - but if you plan on coming home that night to the beach, be prepared for a moon-lit trip in the boat, or a flashlight walk through the jungle! Other Things to NoteGuests can rent for total privacy, being self-catering and handling house-cleaning, laundry, etc, themselves, or with a cook, maid and daily cleaning service. This can be tailored to your preferences and specific needs. Of course, some maintenance, such as pool cleaning, beach and grounds upkeep, requires workers every day, but this can be done at times to suit you.
ELECTRICITY - PLEASE NOTE: Electricity supplied by the local power company, Guimelco, is subject to cut-offs or 'brown-outs' because of the on-going development of the region. We have installed a petrol generator for use during these brown-out periods, which is started shortly after "lights go out." During these occasions, you need to be careful how many electrical devices, air-cons, etc, you are using. We will talk to you about this on your check in.
