To Mike Barker (owner):
We were newlyweds (July 10th) and spent of our honeymoon at your gorgeous villa last July 11 – 16. Now that we are back in the States our thoughts remains in your beautiful little utopia.
Your staff were professionals, kind, friendly and most of all honest. Specifically, I like to mention Helen who did an excellent and outstanding performance in serving and making our stay a memorable one. Kudos to Helen.

“Hidden Treasure”
Reviewed June 24, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

I went there with my nephew and his friend, it is close to Mainla about 1hr and 30 min and then a boat ride of 1 hr to this gem. We stayed here for 2 nights between 6th June to 8 th June 2015. It has its own private beach, safe for children, they accept dogs it was a bonus as we took tow of our dogs there. Our villa was just few steps from the beach, the kitchen is well equipped, with first floor master bed and the 2nd bed as a captains cabin on the top with fabulous views. Good bathrooms, and very good bed room, the first floor bed room had a large balcony with dining table. The roof is thatched, floors are wood and just perfect villa nestling on the cliff with mature trees and very tastefully build. There is a beach pagoda where we stayed most of the time when we were in the beach, had our lunch here with few glasses of wine. This is a place to look at the stars at night with no light pollution, so we did that 2 nights on the run.

“Paradise”
Reviewed June 16, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The property is a gem close to Manila. We loved the natural setting with very few properties in this cove. We saw fire flies, bats, abundant bird life, flying fish, lots of gecko's etc. The kids had a great stay and for the majority of the time we had the private beach all to our selves.

A few hints for travelers: Bring ground coffee beans (Yes they have plungers!), tea bags, if you want to eat cereal or soup, bring your own bowls as only 2 in the property.

The near by day trips are well worth doing, especially the Zip Line. :-)

We will be back.

“Perfect location for a wonderful, relaxing family vacation!”
Reviewed March 15, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

person found this review helpful

My husband and I had the extreme pleasure of sharing the two bedroom villa with our daughter-in-law and son from December 31, 2014 to January 10, 2015. We live in Washington State while our daughter-in-law and son are stationed in Guam, and the four of us had not been together for about 16 months. We were looking forward to a relaxing vacation and being able to enjoy being reunited together as a family, and we could not have chosen a better location!

Wilma and Mike arranged for private van transport from the Manila airport to the port in Batangas, and then a private banca (boat) directly to the pristine private beach at the villa. Everyone involved with the transport was professional and courteous. Approaching the beach from the water was a marvelous way to get our first glimpse of the beautiful property. Wilma and Mike personally greeted us and showed us around while the boatmen carried our luggage to our rooms.

The two bedroom villa is a perfect size and configuration for two couples, with a bedroom/bathroom suite on the main level, and an outdoor stairway to the upper floor bedroom/bathroom suite. The kitchen is on the lower level and includes a covered outdoor eating area. The main level includes a large outdoor covered seating area, where the four of us spent most of our time together enjoying the magnificent views of the bay. All areas of the villa were very clean and comfortable. The grounds were gorgeous, with several varieties of plants skillfully attended to, lots of birds signing in the trees, and fireflies making an appearance nearly every evening. Even though there were large groups in the 5 bedroom villa during our stay, we enjoyed the privacy that we were looking forward to. Sharing the kayak and paddle boards with the other guests was not an issue for us at all.

Mae took such good care of us, doing all the shopping and cooking for three scrumptious meals a day. We so miss her lovely voice letting us know our meals were ready! Mae completely spoiled us, having wonderful creations at each meal and taking the time to make a lovely presentation of the food, especially the fresh mangos. When we were ready to tear ourselves away from the magnificent view, Mae was always ready with helpful suggestions of things to do. Mike arranged for a private Jeepney to take us on a day trip to Tukuran Falls and White Beach, and Mae accompanied us, toting a cooler full of sandwiches and drinks for a picnic at the falls. On another day, our daughter-in-law was not feeling well and Mae prepared Arroz Caldo, a classic Filipino comfort porridge of chicken broth and rice that our daughter-in-law remembered her Filapina mother making for her whenever she was not feeling well as a child. This was so kind of Mae to do, and very much appreciated. Mae, we will never forget you!

Our return to Manila airport was also arranged by Wilma and Mike, again with a private banca picking us up at the beach, and the same van driver awaiting us at the Batangas pier. Everyone was prompt, courteous and professional. We would encourage anyone who is looking for a peaceful, relaxing vacation to seriously consider Wilma and Mike's 2 Bedroom Luxury Villa and Beach In Puerto Galera!

“Perfect for a destination wedding”
Reviewed October 9, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Mike and Wilma are fantastic hosts. They and their staff met every need and then some. Everything from cooking staff to arranging for jeepneys to take us into town and sight-seeing.
We rented both villas for a family reunion, celebration/wedding. My son and daughter-in-love had a beautiful wedding on the private beach. The facilities were immaculate. The larger villa had the perfect area for a reception and dinner.
Weather in Puerto Galera in January is like being in Hawaii and we couldn't have asked for any better weather.
This would be a great place to relax also.

My wife and I along with another couple rented this house for a week in Sep/Oct 2014, we all agree it was one of the most enjoyable vacations we have ever taken. The house was very clean, the service was impeccable and the views were real and they were spectacular. The water was crystal clear and we could even paddle board or kayak out to the local reefs for snorkeling. 100% recommend this spot, I almost wish it wasn't up on trip advisor so I could keep it to myself. Amazing!
