A rustic, large 57 square meter open plan space with a double and single bed, hardwood sofa, basic bamboo furniture & balcony on the 1st floor, and a private western specification bathroom and storage area on the ground floor. Situated in a vibrant Filipino-expatriate community at the edge of General Luna village, about 50 meters from the beach.
The competitive price, huge space, stunning glass frontage, and beautiful view over the Pacific, make it one of the best places to stay on Siargao.
The newly renovated property (October 2016) features a wide balcony and large 613 square foot open plan space on the first floor with two beds (one double, one single), two electric fans, an L-shaped sofa, a wardrobe, and basic bamboo furniture. On the ground floor is a private entrance, storage area, staircase, and a private bathroom with a hot shower, sink, and flush toilet
You can cook yourself in our communal dining/kitchen area OR you can dine in many cheap local restaurants (all walking distance) or take a tricycle/motorcycle to Cloud 9, just 3km away, for more upmarket dining options.

About Us : Mirasol was born & raised on Siargao Island. She worked as a nanny in Manila for several years, then married Martin in 2003 & moved to England in 2004. She worked there for five years and travelled across the world to obscure countries like Liberia, Saudi Arabia, Israel, UAE, Portugal, Spain, Indonesia & East Timor. The highlight of her life so far is the birth of her son Rafael in 2010.
Martin was born and raised in England. He discovered the joys of surfing during a study year abroad at UC San Diego. He arrived on Siargao Island for the first time in 1997, and although he has found many other places in the world better to surf, it was the vibe (and Mirasol) that inspired him to return to the island time and time again.
About Residencia Miramar: We've hosted over 25 nationalities in the past three years. We get great reviews by treating our visitors like family. We are no frills, but offer unique, native accommodation for a good price. In October 2016 we renovated our "Pacific Views" listing into an open plan apartment with a western specification bathroom; turning it into an even better space at a very competitive price for increasingly expensive Siargao.
Currently we (Martin & Mirasol) are not living on Siargao Island. Martin is teaching English in a small town on the NE coast of Saudi Arabia. Mirasol is keeping him sane during this extended three year break from tropical island life. Mirasol's brother Bebet and his wife Grace will takeover as hosts once you get to Siargao. We'll communicate with you before you get to the island and help you with anything you need to know.
