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. An ADVENTUROUS 300m Path goes right from our property down to Puerto Galera harbor with access for our boats... In the opposite direction, the beach is right over the cliff & accessible from the lovely Encenada Beach, just a 1km walk or ride away!

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 ALL 3 bedrooms, which can also be used to cool the whole condo if the windows are closed and interior doors open. Electric fans in all other rooms keep it nice and cool. 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. But we have mattresses to fit as many as 14 guests comfortably, however the condo will have less privacy and be tight with that many guests. We will accept up to 18 guests, including children. * There is a queen size bed in the master bedroom. * There are 3 queen beds and 1 single bed in the family bedroom. * There is a queen size bed in the oceanview bedroom. * Additionally, we have 2 extra queen bed mattresses and 2 extra single mattresses, that can be used for sleeping in any bedroom or the living room.. * Additionally there is a comfortable single bed sized couch in the living room that works great for one person sleeping, and one small mattress, that's great for a child and fits in any room. Everything about the condo & your stay is FULLY FURNISHED. Complete bed linens, towels & toiletries, as well as everything you need in the kitchen, including all plates, bowls, cups, glasses, pots & pans, and a stove, turbo broiler, oven, small BBQ & full size refrigerator. We also have a washing machine, drying machine and clothes lines for drying. We have 3 daughters, so we have an extensive collection of children's TOYS, electronic games, and books. We also have a rather extensive library of BOOKS on hand for you to use at the condo. And best of all, we are happy to include an English speaking FULL SERVICE MAID within your rental rate. 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! GETTING HERE: You arrive at the airport in Manila. Take a taxi to the Buendia bus station in Manila. Take the Jam busline from Buendia to Batangas Pier. Take The MSL (Minolo Shipping Lines) outrigger boat from Batangas Pier to Muelle Pier in Puerto Galera. We will meet you at Muelle Pier with free transportation to your condo. It is also possible to rent a taxi straight from the airport or your hotel in Manila to Batangas Pier, at a higher price...If you have any questions, just contact us for more details.

die Räumlickeiten zu klein- free Maid gegen Servicegebühr
Die Unterkunft liegt ruhig und etwas abgelegen in den Hügeln ca. 1,5km von Puerto Galera entfernt. Die angegebenen 112 qm beinhalten schon die Terrasse mit ca. 35qm, so dass das Appartment an sich sehr klein und eng ausfällt. Wir waren mit 11 Personen in der Unterkunft und es war beengt. Tatsächlich gibt es 2 abgetrennte Schlafzimmer, das 3. ist nur durch einen Vorhang abgetrennt. Es ist wohl die Privatwohnung des Anbieters, denn sowohl in den Schlafzimmern als auch auf der Terrasse waren viee private Sachen des Eigentümers. Zudem war vor der Küchenzeile auf der Terrasse ein Schuhregal mit ca. 15 Paar Schuhen des Eigentümers. Alles in allem war der bezahlte Preis die Unterkunft nicht wert. Die Anzahl an max Personen sollte auf höchstens 8 begrenzt werden!

It was great to have your group 11 stay at our ocean view condo. Yes, the 112sm total inside area does include the large kitchen and dining area in the covered terrace--actually, this is a very functional space and almost everybody's favorite part of the condo, where you can relax close to nature and enjoy the beautiful views of Puerto Galera Bay! Of course the condo is quite large, but you are right, with 11 guests, it is quite full. We did make it totally clear since before you booked, that the most comfortable # of guests is 8 or less and that 11 would be tight, to which you agreed...On the other hand, we did have 2 additional empty queen size mattresses that you could have chosen to use for sleeping, if you didn't feel you had enough bedspace. You are correct that the condo IS our primary residence when we don't have guests, and we keep things extremely clean, but some of our personal belongings can be seen in their appropriate locations during your stay--hence having shoes in a shoe rack :) I'm so glad your group enjoyed our delicious unlimited buffet breakfasts, daily housekeeping clothes washing, and private tour guide all included in the rental price, which is why each guest beyond the first 2 pays $8 per night, and makes for a very affordable rate for a large group. I'm surprised you didn't mention more about all the tour guide services that I provided as your free private local tour guide. We certainly had a great time visiting native villages, remote jungle waterfalls and White Sand beaches, that you would not have experienced without my help. In the end, I know we provided an excellent accommodations and service to your group, and I'm sorry you feel that your stay only warranted 3 stars. We pride ourself in satisfying our guests and are not used to getting anything less than excellent reviews. We hope that you can reconsider the view you shared of our condo, and we hope that you will choose our condo again next time you stay in Puerto Galera...wishing you all the best!
