“Home Away From Home. Courtesy beyond any hotel - you are family. Stay here for a wonderful vacation!”
Reviewed September 15, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

The Philippines hits the ultimate vacation trifecta: extremely affordable, GORGEOUS, and easy to navigate. Our choice to stay at ‘Beauty on the Hill’ was the best decision we made on our 8 day trip. Bernard was kind enough to pick us up and take us to the airport, which was very helpful after such a long flight. The home is right outside of town, away from any noise and traffic, and is breathtaking beyond words - the luscious landscape and attention to detail are unlike anything we had seen on the island of Palawan (voted #1 most beautiful island in the world by Conde Nast Traveler voters, by the way). Everyone is also incredibly kind in the Philippines. We especially felt at home when we made our way upstairs and met Rose, who was beyond accommodating and is truly an angel on Earth. We had the choice to cook for ourselves in the full kitchen or have Rose cook for us, and she did not disappoint! We were served delicious meals every morning, afternoon, and evening, which included salad, vegetables, fruits, and freshly made coffee and juice all grown in her organic garden right outside in the backyard. My favorite were the cassava pancakes and banana flambé :) Anything we requested, we could have. She gave us rides into town, to the beach, and even accompanied us on our tour to the Underground River (voted 1 of 7 new natural wonders of the world!) so that we would have our own personal tour guide. Her hospitality and warm smile made us feel like we were part of the family. In the home there are 2 rooms, a television w/ surround sound, ceiling fans, wi-fi, 2 bathrooms including a shower with heated water, a full kitchen, an outdoor dining table, and breathtaking views of the hills and trees. We are beyond happy that we made the choice to stay here, as it made our vacation that much more memorable. If you’re looking for a relaxing and affordable place to stay, unwind, and enjoy the wonders of nature, then this is the place for you! A HUGE thank you to both Bernard and Rose for allowing us to stay in their beautiful home - we will most definitely be back!!

Stayed there for 5 days in the month of July 2016 with my daughter and my best friend. The place is magical and enchanted. If you are looking for serenity and peace, no other comes close to The Beauty on the Hill. Fresh air, fresh food, this place has it all. The hosts Rose and Bernard goes above and beyond to accomodate you, to make you feel at home and to attend to all your needs. I give this place a 5star rating!!!
