    Guestbook

    A hidden gem!   A perfect place to get away from all the ‘noise’ of the world.  We thoroughly enjoyed the panoramic views from the deck and pools.  Walking down to the ocean for snorkelling became a regular event too.  Our hosts were fantastic, very kind and arranged extremely enjoyable massages!

    We ventured on a couple side trips – over night to Bohol to see the Chocolate Mountains and Tarsiers (only found on Bohol!).  If you are divers, as we are, make a trip to Malapascua to see the unique Thresher Sharks – fantastic.

    Hope we have the opportunity to visit again soon.

    Milina (07 Aug 2013)

    The property in the Philippines was perfect for our vacation needs. We also stayed at the Parklane Hotel in Cebu at the beginning of our trip as well as the Cebu Marriott Hotel midweek and at the end of the week. We thought the villa location was beautiful, but very remote with very limited outside contact. No TV (they fixed the satelite tv the day we departed), limited Internet, very limited cell phone access. Most people would have a very difficult time with this for an entire week as Eva admitted that her guests usually can't relax as we were able to. We had an amazing time as we were grateful for the rare break from our very busy work and life schedules. We had the perfect amount of relaxation broken up with extensive sightseeing and a wedding in Cebu and surrounding islands. We loved the villa and being able to completely unwind. Eva was so gracious to us and offered her driver, Frank (for additional costs) and her staff who were so sweet to us and went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. I would love to visit again someday. Our vacation was magical and we thank you at IVHE and Eva and her staff for making it possible. All the best, Julie
