My parents and I stayed in the Idawud room for three nights towards the end of May. From the moment we stepped inside the gate until our last day we felt right at home. The caretakers attended to all our needs and requests, our room was comfortable and was always kept clean, the breakfast was well worth the price, and... More

We had a pleasant stay in Raptian di Vasay. It has a great location, i was surprised that it is very near the airport which more or less took us just around 5 mins to get there. We availed the Kagtin room at the basement. It's great for families because of the size, comfort and ventilation (no need for aircon... More

My friend Pia and I went there without any expectations. All we aimed for was to really have a great time and we sure did. Excellent service I should say. The food was great and even the staff were friendly and accommodating. I like how the place is so homey. Totally feels like home. I would surely recommend this place... More

I reserved a room for me and my sister months ago, made necessary down payment. Then later on, my nieces decided to join us in our travel to Batanes so I asked for another room to accommodate my 3 nieces. Unfortunately, according to owner, all rooms will be occupied by then but she said that IDAWUD room can accommodate up... More

It was our reunion of three high school classmates after 40 years. We stayed at the room in the ground floor. Breakfast was served in the adjacent dining room. We would suggest the breakfast that we like and they were very accommodating. The whole house is impeccably clean and that really matters. The only thing that we wish we had... More

Rapitan di Vasay gave me and my friend a firsthand experience of Ivatan hospitality. We really enjoyed our stay in Batanes and a big part of it was brought about by the warm and welcoming atmosphere that Rapitan provided. This ancestral home-turned-B&B was very much like a home away from home :) I would especially like to commend everyone in... More

We had no expectations w/ our last minute plans to Batanes. What a pleasant surpise. Rapitan was immaculately clean and organized, from the rooms, bathrooms, dining area, and kitchen (even after Acela made breakfast w/ all the kitchen utensils). It is conveniently located to everything (walking distance < 15 minutes, and I enjoy walking): one of the many internet cafes... More

Rapitan di Vasay (RDV) --- where you can experience the best of Ivatan hospitality and the best home-cooked breakfast in Basco! I knew I made the right decision even before seeing the place. Inquiries via e-mail were promptly answered by one of the owners, Ms. Yolanda. She is a such a gem! Rapitan di Vasay is a century old house... More

Stayed 2 nights in Rapitan di Vasay. We stayed in the Idawud room. Very clean, clean beddings, clean hardwood floors. Smooth sheets. They even put up mosquito netting for a more restful, bug-free, slumber. We went in February so it was very cool and breezy. Staff was very accommodating. The house and all its rooms are cleaned every morning at... More

My husband and I stayed here for only one night but my parents stayed for 3 nights. Can't say enough good things about this house and the caretakers. We met the owners and they were very nice. They are very attentive to our needs. They helped us get tricycle so we can go around. It is located right in the... More
