It's luxurious for a lone traveler, or the perfect place for a couple, family, or group of friends, looking to experience all the beauty of one of the Philippines most famous SCUBA diving & nightlife destinations.
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.
Enjoy lounging in the large living room, with the 50" TV offering ~60 international channels & dvd player. There is also a tv in the family bedroom.
Or spend your time enjoying the ocean view, and music on the large blue-tooth stereo system, out on the 35sm COVERED TERRACE.

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 20 guests, including children.

I have been living in Puerto Galera permanently for over 10 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.
