The inside area is kept immaculately CLEAN, to avoid mold, dust, pollen or other allergens. We suggest a maximum of 11 people for complete comfort and privacy.

That's Right, from 7am to 5pm daily, you will have a trustworthy, eager, smiling Filipina lady to clean the house, wash your clothes and help with cooking *, not to mention share a friendly chat, at no extra cost. Or, if you want some extra privacy, feel free to send her home early--tips are welcome...How can you beat that?! 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 can just give you advice & help you plan your daily adventures OR I will be happy to lead you on daily excursions, anywhere around Puerto Galera, as your full service TOUR GUIDE all within your rental rate (excluding my food & transportation costs)... I have been living in Puerto Galera permanently for 8 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. Additionally, I have a nice camera that we can use anywhere on land, and an underwater camera to use on boats, snorkeling & even diving! I will be happy to shoot photos of all the adventures throughout your stay....That way you can keep your hands & mind free to enjoy the moment. I will transfer all the images to your laptop or send them to you by email at the end of your stay! Many people say this service is the "icing on the cake" about why our condo is the best place you can choose to stay in Puerto! Note: If I'm not home, we can't offer this photo service. To top it all off, each morning an UNLIMITED BUFFET BREAKFAST of fresh fruits, eggs, bread, meats and other delicious treats, plus coffee, tea, milk and juice is included for all guests! All other MEALS can be cooked for you here by us, but we will need to plan ahead and you will pay for the ingredients, plus a small fee for the service. Also included all day long is an UNLIMITED supply of juice, iced tea, coffee and purified water for drinking, cooking and brushing teeth. Unlike many accommodations in Puerto Galera, we have very STRONG CLEAN WATER pressure, 24/7, and hot water showers in every bathroom. Also unlike many other places, we have a GENERATOR on site, that will be turned on in case of occasional town power outages, at no extra charge. We have a locked, covered GARAGE, to safely park your car or motorbike. Our Free WIFI works great (by Philippine internet speed standards), all around the condo for up to 10 devices. You are also welcome to use our color printer/scanner in moderation, all for free. We have 6 sets of SNORKELING GEAR that you can use any time, for free! Now that's a great deal because this gear would cost you at least $4 (p150+) per set, per day to rent, if you were lucky enough to find somewhere that had them! You can also borrow beach towels to take to take on your adventures. We also have children's life jackets and flotation devices, all of which can be borrowed any time, for free. We are happy to just point you towards the water, or guide you on your ocean adventure at no extra cost. We have access to a proper boat that can fit up to 10 people, and we often arrange ISLAND HOPPING for our guests, at a very reasonable rate... This is probably the best way to truly experience the finest natural qualities of Puerto Galera and a lovely way to spend a day of snorkeling with the fish & corals, playing and enjoying a scenic picnic on remote island beaches! We can also arrange luxurious private SAILBOAT cruise charters around Puerto Galera or beyond. Puerto Galera is world renowned for having some of the finest tropical coral reef SCUBA diving in the world. If you love the water and already dive, or want to learn, don't miss your chance! As a Dive Master, I can also help you get all set up for SCUBA diving at an excellent local dive center and even be your personal dive guide, all at very affordable rates! Did you know that even if you've never dived, I can arrange a safe and exciting Discover SCUBA Diving course for you that only requires 1 hour of classroom studies and then you go for 2 great beginner dives, all for a very affordable rate! We can organize free round trip transport to X-TREME SPORTS, where you can enjoy paintball, lazer-tag, go-cart racing and 4-wheeler mudding, as well as sticky-wall, zorb ball, and a mountain zip-line! We can arrange MOTORBIKE RENTAL for your stay at the best discounted rates. We can also arrange bicycle or motorbike tours around the island of Mindoro. SABANG is an extremely popular destination for foreign guys, famous for its vivid NIGHTLIFE and I'm familiar with all the hotspots, prices, local rules and culture. It is just a short ride from the condo and I will be happy to accompany you there on your first visit, to make sure you are comfortable and have the most possible fun. WHITE BEACH is a beautiful, very busy and exciting beach that's extremely popular with Filipino tourists, and famous for having great sand and tons of beachfront food & drinks, shopping, and water sports activities. You can get there easily by tricycle and I will be happy to accompany you, so you can get the best rates and can take full advantage of all the FUN White Beach has to offer! Myself, my wife, or a guide we provide will happily be your guide to take you on mountain jungle hikes to secluded waterfalls, island hopping to pristine beaches, to native Mangyan villages, to enjoy the views at a beautiful mountain golf course, to adventure sports destinations, or any of 30 other interesting activities, all for free! We also have a 750sm hillside backyard with garden and orchard of fruit trees, where you're welcome to enjoy nature. SMOKING is allowed on the covered terrace or anywhere outside, but please make sure your butts end up in the trash, not on the ground. The neighbors are always quiet, but you're welcome to be as loud as you like, day or night. We have no problem with you throwing a PARTY with your friends--heck, the maid will even help you clean it up in the morning, no joke :) Just please don't break anything! If you meet FRIENDS, you are always welcome to take them back to the condo for the day... IF they spend the night and eat breakfast in the morning, they will be considered as an extra guest and you will pay the small additional guest fee of $8 (p350) per extra guest per night. Any guest who is 10 or above, will be considered an adult and be charged as an additional guest. Guests from 4 to 9 years will be charged at 1/2 the additional guest rate. This is necessary because all children will still have their own bed linens, towel, clothes washing, toiletries, and daily breakfast...All children 3 or below stay for free. Notice we don't charge a security deposit, or cleaning service charge and we offer a fair cancellation policy...Just trying to make you stay memorable and keep our price competitive!

The SpacePrivacy….Seclusion Peace….! An incredible 4-double bedroom villa on the water’s edge with stunning views of Dalaruan Cove, Puerto Galera Bay, with their breath-taking sunrises and sunsets. From Manila it is two hours by tollway to Batangas plus a one hour sea-crossing over the beautiful ‘Verde Island Passage’. The villa has a well equipped kitchen and all bedrooms have en suite bathrooms. There is a large terrace with lots of comfortable rattan lounge chairs. The Villa comfortably accommodates three families and children, or many more. It is particularly popular with overseas expatriates living in China, South East Asia and the Middle East who are married to Filipinas who in turn invite their extended families from around the Philippines to join them for a unique beach and water sports holiday. Guest AccessTransportation- Guests coming to Puerto Galera may either avail of public buses and ferries from Manila via Batangas Pier. We can send a copy of the ferry schedules as an attachment. Alternatively, our staff will arrange door-to-door private transfer from Makati (hotel /airport /residence) direct to the Villa by a combination of private minivan(s) and 60' motorboat. Indicative cost per pax from Manila by public bus /ferry is about P500 ($12) each way and of private transfer about P6,000 for a 10 pax group (if more than 10 adults, the private banca charges additional P 100/adult). Extra charge of P 500 for night crossing. There is secure parking at the Villa if guests bring vehicles. On arrival an Environmental Fee of P50/$1.10 is charged. To get around in Puerto itself land transport, motor tricycles /motorcycles (with or without driver) are easily available for shopping /exploring /eating out etc. Guests have access to many of our water sports activities, mostly at no incremental cost. For beach /island hopping, diving, snorkelling, trips to town etc. our own motor boats transport guests at rates uniform with those of commercial bancas, For trips further afield, we assist in arranging for commercial operators. Two kayaks, a mirror dinghy and a 16' Hobie Cat come included with the rental, and a self-drive outboard runabout is available for experienced operators at P150 /hour. –These might have to be shared if the other villa, The Boathouse, is rented out at the same time. Two 36' yachts are available for P 9,600 /trip including skilled boatmen. Free Wifi is provided at the villas. It is good at night but occasionally patchy during peak day times. A Magic Sing karaoke and a guitar are also available. Again, these might have to be shared if the other villa is also rented out. Interaction with GuestsContinuous interaction via email, cell phone is with owners is normal, and caretakers staff are always at the villas in their own accommodation to assist guests at all times. The NeighborhoodThe Boathouse guests enjoy privacy, stunning views of the sea and the surrounding areas - especially during sunrise /sunsets.. Although Dalaruan Cove is quiet and peaceful it is only a 20 minute walk to the Lalaguna and Sabang Beaches where there is a wealth of tourist activities and nightlife. There are giant clams in the bay and beautiful coral gardens around the corner from the villa which may be enjoyed with just a mask and snorkel. Puerto Galera Yacht Club offers sailing courses and their Wednesday evening Curry Nights and Friday Barbeques are a must as guests get to meet the resident expats. Getting AroundTransfer from Manila - Guests may opt for group transfers from Manila direct to our Villas through inexpensive and trusted minivan operators and motor-banca operators that we use regularly, but note that these are for guest’s own account – we have no financial or liability involvement. Let us know your arrival details and we will set up airport /hotel /residence pick up for you. Our usual minivan operator charges Pesos 3,000 Manila-PG (one way), including toll fees and fuel, and 60’ banca “Poseidon” also charges Pesos 3,000 (one way ) per group of 10. Additional P 100/head for more than 10 people and additional P 500 for night crossing.

Tricycles and habal habal (motorcycles for rent) can also be organized to get around. Other Things to NoteWe specialize in self-catering, are perhaps the only privately owned establishment in Puerto Galera that specializes in self-catering for larger groups and extended families. Our key guest profile is typically an expatriate foreigner working for example China, South-East Asia or the middle east, who wishes to share an affordable holiday with his wife and her extended family in amidst the beauty of Puerto Galera and its incredible surrounds....giving an unforgettable holiday for both the visiting family and the larger local group.... -We provide bed sheets and towels BUT don't change them every day.

We deal mostly with Badladz Adventure Divers based on Puerto Galera Pier. We have found that they offer the most competitive prices, have smaller groups and give good individual attention. They pick guests up at the villas and if requested, conduct class room training at the villas. We have no financial or liability involvement with this group.

    The SpaceAway from the bustle of Puerto Galera's tourism industry - it's private yet not too far from town. The breeze is fantastic especially during the months of January to early April. Bring a jacket. :) The place is best suited for a group of 8-10 people. We've had company outings held here where there is ample space for simple games and other activities. Four of the 5 rooms have aircon. 2 rooms have 1 queen-sized bed each while the other 2 rooms have 2 single beds each. The 5th room is smaller than the rest and has no aircon. This is usually used by our housekeeper/ cook who sleeps at the house. We have sofa/folding beds available. Three of the four rooms can be rented individually at P3193 / night while the biggest room is for rent at 3,605 a night. Also, use of the kitchen entails a P200/day fee (if a room and not the whole house will be rented). IMPORTANT : If the number of guests exceed 10 pax, we charge an additional P300/head per day. Maximum number of guests is 12. Guest AccessGuests can go visit other islands and beaches by boat or jeep or tricycle. And there is a sandbar nearby with a smashing view of the sunset. Not to mention having an entire house all to yourselves. Right next door is a resort where they have all sorts of stuff like wind surfing, banana boat rides, canoe-ing, jet ski, etc. There is also a dive shop next door. Interaction with GuestsWe have a very efficient caretaker and a Manang to take care of your needs. For those who want their marketing and cooking done for them, we may ask our housekeeper/cook to do that for you although we will have to ask if she is available. Also, you will have to pay her. Her cooking fee is as follows : 1-5 pax is P300/day, 3 simple meals; 6-10 pax is P500/day; 11-15 pax is P750. The NeighborhoodOur neighborhood is peaceful and quiet. Not much karaoke singing around here. Although you may run into other guests from the resort next door, everyone is pretty chill, laid back and pretty much minds their own business Getting AroundGetting to the town can be done by any of the following : 5-10 minutes by boat, a 20-30 minute trek, and a 15-20 minute tricyle ride Other Things to Note• We have a generator in case of brownouts but it can only supply power to lights, electric fans and the water pump (not the aircon). Turning on the aircon may cause the generator to explode. Candlelight by the beach does have its own charm too! • There are 2 bathrooms upstairs (with heater) and one less-civilized bathroom downstairs. • You may rent a videoke from town for P500/ day • Our Manang can provide you with the contact numbers you may need such as boat/jeep/tricycle rentals • Our caretaker has a small banca that he rents and can fit around 3 people for short trips to the bayan. Rental is P100 one way.

All our rooms are equipped with the latest facilities and amenities that guests consider a nice confluence of the highest western standard luxuries with local Filipino charm and hospitality.

Formerly part of the highly regarded Out of the Blue resort, we set our sights on an even higher standard resort with a more accommodating staff but with the same great ocean views and private limited access location.

Instead, we use 320 thread count linens made from pure cotton and each bed is made with four of the finest, dual-chamber pillows from Tencel. Each bathroom is equipped with two sets of plush towels, each set comprising a 720 gram bath sheet, along with a 480 gram bath towel and matching face and hand towels. We stock all rooms with fifteen liter bottles of purified drinking water dispensers supplying instant hot or chilled water, and replenished as required. Lalaguna Villas water supply is consistent. Our guests won’t suffer from water problems common in many other resorts. All of our taps use water saving shower heads with the best water pressure on the beach. Humankind cannot survive on water alone. They need food, free wifi and reliable electric power! Our resort is fully WiFi capable throughout including common areas where you may want to lounge like the pool, bar or clubhouse. For power “brownouts” we have installed battery backups that will power the entire resort for at least twelve hours before we have to turn on the generator. What does that mean for you? Uninterrupted power, and quiet! You should never have to hear our generator during your stay. Food, you say? Guests and visitors alike can order from our extensive menu prepared by top chefs of cooked-to-order meals, served in your room, on your terrace or poolside. Our kitchen is open 24/7 for your convenience. In season, please reserve your table for our fantastic sunset happy hours at our CGrill Floating Restaurant and Bar.

    The SpaceThis place is unique because of the location. Our place is very quiet and peaceful with fresh air. Plenty of stars at night. The view during the day you can see Verde View Island and the Ocean from your terrace. Only 20 meters from our main house. What we do better than anyone is treat our guest with 100 percent customer service. Something not seen much anymore. Guest AccessGuest have access to Leelah Beach which is a private pathway we built direct down to the ocean. There you can go snorkel or look for seashells or just sit and relax. No one will bother you there.

    The SpaceIs it a big Nipa Hut? Well it looks like that but it is a very solid structure with a Koogan grass roof. The studio is at the base of the house so it has a normal concrete ceiling. The studio consists of a king size bed, flat screen TV, papa-san chair, table with two chairs, water dispenser for hot and cold water which is supplied free of charge. Two burner built-in gas stove, two door refrigerator, and various appliances. If you need something that is not there it is more than likely that we have one upstairs. If you like cooking you are welcome to raid the herb garden. If you would like a virtual tour we can set up a time to (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN). I named it "Honu House." Honu means Green Sea Turtle in Hawaiian. In addition to having lived in Hawaii for many years, turtles are my favorite things to see in the water. We have a couple of resident turtles that can you see diving and/or snorkeling. Guest AccessIn addition to the unit, guests have access to the two pools, laundry and barbecue. The grass area in front of the studio together with table and chairs is for the use of studio guests. Interaction with GuestsWe generally interact with our guests to the extent that they like. We have lots of regular activities such as jungle treks, dog walks, happy hours and group dinners. There are lots of expats living around us so all you need to do is join us for an event and you will meet a dozen people of varying backgrounds. We provide a cell phone with a local number so you can contact us anytime without roaming on your overseas phone. The NeighborhoodOur beach has no roads. It is 500 meters to the other two beaches which have road access. This means you don't hear vehicles and you don't breathe in pollution. The land on our beach is or was owned by a couple of related families and they still live there so local strangers don't hang around which serves as a type of security. Getting AroundThere are various forms of transportation available: 1. Habal-habal, small motorbikes that you hop on the back of. One should consider the dangers involved with motorcycle transportation. 2. Rental motorbikes from 50cc up to 200cc enduro types. Again be cautious. It does not matter how good a rider you are. The roads are in bad condition and the drivers are no better. 3. Tricycles are motorbikes with a sidecar. They are the most expensive way to get around on the roads. 4. Jeepneys are a famous part of Philippine culture and the most common form of transportation in most parts of the country. They are like oversized pick-up trucks with two bench seats facing each other.mif you are lucky someone will bring a load of live chickens on the journey. They are big, heavy and clunky but are the cheapest and safest mode of transportation. The five Km. into town costs 20 pesos which is about 45 cents (U.S.). 5. Bangkas are double outrigger wooden boats and are ubiquitous in this country of 7,007 islands. They can take you A to B or you can hire them for a day of snorkeling or a barbecue on a secluded beach. We can advise of the appropriate prices to pay for these various modes of transportation. Other Things to NoteInternet. I am happy to be rewriting this section. Until recently our internet choices were bad and worse. We now have 4G and the studio has a hard-wired wifi to extend the signal. So now streaming you tubes , video (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) etc. is not a problem. We have a 50 Gig monthly usage limit so we caution people about downloading movies or massive files but things are fairly good for everyday tasks. For technical types we are getting the following: 4.7 to 5.0 Mbps down; 3.5 to 5.0 up; ping speeds consistently under 40ms.
