It's luxurious for a lone traveler, or the perfect place for a couple, family, or group of friends, looking to experience all the beauty of one of the Philippines most famous SCUBA diving & nightlife destinations.
Surrounded by a JUNGLE of green, the condo is located in a peaceful, upscale neighborhood, with foreign owned estates & top resorts as neighbors. It's a great retreat from the crowds and noise of White Beach or Sabang, which are both still just a simple drive away.
The property is right on the MAIN ROAD--an easy 5 minute ride by tricycle or a 15 minute walk from downtown Puerto Galera. In the other direction Sabang is a 10 minute tricycle ride, or an invigorating 45 minute walk. Also a convenient 1km walk or ride to the beautiful, peaceful Encenada Beach.

Or spend your time enjoying the ocean view, and music on the large blue-tooth stereo system, out on the COVERED TERRACE.

Or if you are looking for fancy cuisine and a full spa treatment, just 300m up the street, the luxurious Utopia Spa & Resort accepts walk in customers!
AIR CONDITIONING in both bedrooms, which can also be used to cool the whole condo if the windows are closed and interior doors open. Electric fans in the other rooms keep it nice and cool. The inside area is kept very CLEAN, to avoid mold, dust, pollen or other allergens.

And best of all, we are happy to include an English speaking FULL SERVICE MAID within your rental rate. That's Right, from around 7am to 5pm daily, you will have a trustworthy, eager, smiling Filipina lady to clean the house, wash your clothes and help in the kitchen, not to mention share a friendly chat, at no extra cost.

Did I mention that I'm a Marine Biologist, Dive Master and experienced local Tour Guide? Yup, I'd love to help you explore all the beauty of the local area.

I have been living in Puerto Galera permanently for over 10 years, so I know all the local sights, activities, culture and pricing structure very well. English is my first language and I am fluent in Tagalog (Filipino), so I can be the perfect INTERPRETER for my guests, especially if it's your first time to the Philippines. Note that many Filipinos speak English, but not all of them, and most not well, or with an accent. So having me help you in conversing for travel instructions or to get better deals can be a big help!
I offer this service because it is a great opportunity for me to get out, practice my guiding skills and stay current with everything going on in my beautiful town of Puerto Galera. I have experience getting the best prices on all of these activities. I do NOT take a commission or overcharge on any of them. I can do this because I have another real job--I do this just for fun!
Please understand that I work at a fish farm in Australia, so I may not be in Puerto Galera during your stay. In that case, my beautiful wife Klaisa is a wonderful host and can cover for me, providing all the same services I offer, to make sure you have an amazing experience.
If you are interested specifically in me being there during your stay, PLEASE INQUIRE about my schedule before booking.
To top it all off, each morning we provide an UNLIMITED BUFFET BREAKFAST of fresh fruits, eggs, bread, fried rice, meats and other delicious treats, plus coffee, tea, powdered milk and juice for all guests!
