A cluster of tropical cottages in a seashore park along a private fine white sand beach in Bucas Grande, the first island of access to Siargao. Unlike others this is a true vacation home and not a commercial resort or hotel. My place is good for couples, families, and big groups.
All 3 cottages offer great views over the turquoise private cove, lush green hills and mushroom islets and also capture a constant sea breeze. Whether 2 or 12 guests, the place is private to you and your pool will be filled with fresh sea water upon arrival. The climate is tropical with more persistent rains during January and February and blue skies and dry weather from March to October. This part of the country is not in the typhoon belt.
The property is attended to by hospitable staff. We can arrange a cook for you at php500 a day (600pesos per day if you are 6 or more) and nanny for php250 a day. Activities include good and safe sea and lake swimming, snorkeling, caving, hiking, kayaking, star gazing and night swimming. Every night fireflies congregate in one or another fragrant tree.
Each of the 3 cottages has a modern bathroom and private lounging with chairs and fine couches. The sea water Mykonos style swimming pool has a yoga and sun deck next to it. The kitchen is modern, open and well equipped. Gardens, cottages, hills and pathways are well lit with LED fixtures, powered by a total of 2,400 Watt solar panels, good for lights, electric fans, media and minor kitchen appliances, 24 hours a day. Our water source is a deep well but we prefer soft rainwater that we catch on the hills and supply by gravity. This is 100% self-sustaining, responsible luxury. Globe network offers a 3G connection for internet browsing.
