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

We stayed on our first 2 nights here in Batanes and didn't regret it. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The place is also walking distance from shops and restaurants around the city. Surprisingly, we enjoyed the breakfasts here more than in Fundacion because the food were delicious and freshly prepared and charged at a fair price. This place... More

Made no mistake in choosing Rapitan di Vasay as our home away from home for our very recent 5 days visit to Batanes. We were treated and fed very well. Met one of the owners, Ms Chita and her niece Aileen who were such gracious host. Staff- Asela, Arianne and Roda saw to it that we were comfortable at all... More

When searching for a place to stay in Basco, we came across a short but intriguing description of the house in the internet saying that Rapitan di Vasay is truly an Ivatan-styled house which also happened to be an old ancestral house of a prominent family in Basco. With such description, we booked for 3 nights, having no other expectation... More
