“The place was excellent and picture perfect. One of the best Airbnb’s yet! The caretakers (Nelson, Cecilia, Edna) were the best! They cooked for us and provided everything we requested. So much snorkeling to be done near the shore. What also endeared us to the place was the sailing my daughter experienced with the owner, Architect Rudy. He took my daughter out a lot of times and gave her lessons. Was not able to use the kayaks but I should have. It was very easy communicating with Marian, she even went to check on us to see if everything was alright. The rooms were impeccable!!! Well thought of. It would have been 5 stars if there was air conditioning but its not really needed since there are a lot of fans and rooms have large windows and sliding doors. I am not sure about the heat during summer though. It was a bit difficult going back to the car, besides leaving with the thought that we are leaving the place, the 200+ steps up the stairs was a workout in itself for me. But its all good. We will definitely be back. Most likely in January after the christmas holidays.”
We would love to share our sanctuary and have it enjoyed by respectful guests who appreciates nature and recognize the responsibility that comes with it.Located in a marine sanctuary.Secluded & serene w/a fantastic view of the islands! Fireflies abound during rainy season! Stunning sunsets! Prenup shoots without extra cost! If you want peace and quiet then this definitely is the place for you! NOTE:Please bring your own towels & toiletries(we strongly advise against sached/single use plastics).
“Can't say enough nice things about this place! Batalang Bato Beach Retreat is one of those rare rentals where the overwhelming positive reviews you read are 100% accurate. Everything went smoothly from the booking stage (Xiutin is so quick to respond and so accommodating with my questions) to check-in, and the place is easy enough to find with the very detailed instructions provided by the hosts. Tito Ludy, Jeff, and Nani were so sincerely hospitable; very special thanks to Jeff for assisting us in bringing my grandma over to the beach, it really made her day! Accommodation-wise, what you see in the photos is exactly what you get, no misleading gimmicks; we rented the one-bedroom cottage and it was comfortable enough for 7 people. Bath and toilet were spacious and clean. Loved the tasteful designs in the whole place and you can tell they put a lot of thought in their styling. The veranda is wonderful for meals or just hanging out and enjoying the view. If you are looking for a quiet vacation where you can unwind and enjoy bonding with loved ones and have access to a nice beach and optional tours in case you want to go out, then this place is a must. What really sets it apart is the hospitality of the hosts! Lots of places can be pretty and fancy but the sincerity of the hosts' service makes all the difference. P.S. I would recommend hiring a helper who can take care of buying fresh stuff from the market, cooking and cleanup for you; it is worth the price and you can have more time to spend with your family. The hosts can recommend someone for you. Same with a masseuse if you want to have a massage in the cottage for the complete holiday experience. Thanks again Xiutin, Jeff and everyone for the wonderful experience! Will be sure to recommend this to my friends.”
This is a private home, not a hotel or resort. This holiday home is our own little paradise built to share and enjoy the gifts of nature and ponder on the many blessings from God. This is a perfect place for families and friends to relax and enjoy the glorious sunset, the lush green rain forest and the beautiful Mount Maculot. Teens and kids delight themselves with cold dips in the pool or sing away around the fire-pit.
“We were immediately welcomed by Mark & Ofelia, Thea’s caretakers. They showed us everything we needed to know, particularly the property’s amenities and made sure we would call them if we needed any questions answered. Communication with Thea was excellent and easy as she responded very quick. The property itself is beautiful and private. We had the whole house and pool to ourselves. The view was breathtaking and as we were there during Christmas time, the place was well decorated for the holiday season. There were also a lot of entertainment available such as games and a karaoke machine. Would definitely recommend this place. Thank you for the lovely stay!”
