I have been visiting Banak house for almost two years now, during summers to enjoy the sun beach, and during typhoon seasons where nature's power displays its beauty. Banak house has served as a sanctuary for me, a refuge that feels like home, away from the crowds and the noise of the city. It serves to remind me to enjoy... More

I have never been to Calatagan and since I have read a lot of good things about Banak House, we decided to book three nights at this vacation rental to savor two whole days of the experience that it has to offer. While we were initially inquiring about the place, we were advised that a 15-kilo lechon (roasted pig) would... More

Stayed with family for 4 nights. Kids had a great time walking the shores. There's a small reef in the shallow waters on the beach front that is a good snorkeling spot for kids during high tide as water disappears completely during low tide. Take a boat ride to explore more snorkeling spots up to the coral shores. Sunset was... More

Going to the Banak House with the company of close friends for the weekend equates to a peaceful chill, recoup and relax weekend. This is the second time I've been there and it still is as well-maintained as the last time i was there a few years back. If you're looking for quiet summers, getting together by a bonfire, and...

if you're going there to relax, marvel at the sunset, walk along the shoreline, take pictures, hang out and drink around the bonfire then this really is the place for you! We had such a great time here and the long travel time is so worth it. You can check the other details here: http://pinaycommuter.blogspot.com/

Thank you very much for your kind review. I enjoyed reading that you and your group "Got it." Got it,in that Banak House is rustic and intimate, distant but when you get there, worth it. I only wish that I could have made the tide come in by noon at that time; swimming the reefs in the Calatagan sanctuary is... More

Ever since I was young, my family and I would spend my birthday at Banak House, Calatagan. As a tradition, I spent my 18th there and that would probably be the best experience ever. There have always been tons of fun things to do at Banak House. My family, friends, and I had such a great time enjoying the beach... More

If you’re looking for Peace, Tranquility, Relaxation and a place to spend some quality time with your family you need to look no further. Banak House is the place to be. Those who are looking for more than just laying on the beach there are lots of activities you can partake in. Snorkeling is the favorite of the whole family... More

The house is wonderful, comfortable, and charming, and the staff were efficient and made us feel very welcome. This is a wonderful place to stay and simply relax and enjoy the beach, the lovely views of the mountains, or take long walks. We'd go back again and again!
