Basic accommodation but the view is unbeatable. Huge window right next to the water!! Bathroom is a bit old but working. Hosts are friendly and laid back. As for breakfast we highly recommend Spider House which is located just next door. Enjoy ur stay and have a peaceful time out on Boracay away from the party area.

When we arrived, the first room we were offered was nothing like what was in any of the photos and was not worth anywhere near the money they were trying to charge. When we explained it wasn't what we had booked they offered us another room, but this was the owners room (the owner lives there most of the time)... More

We travelled to Boracay a few years back but i thought we should give it some reviews. Monkey House is a beautiful little place located at the right place on Boracay Islands. If you are travelling as a couple and do not care of room service and other nonsense, this will provide you with a feeling of being at peace.... More

This is a real chance to live an exotic life for a couple of days - great cozy hotel in the rocks, with unique rooms design and splendid view. There are no windows - there are big spaces with endless sky and sea. It was actually a highlight of our staying in Boracay. And very quiet and beautiful beach Diwinid.... More

The Monkey House is a true hidden gem on Borocay. While the stretch of development along the white sands beach has become a cluttered mix of guesthouses and boutique hotels spilling over into each other’s property, the Monkey House has been able to retain the charm of a small 4 bedroom hideaway among the trees / on the rocks at...

After visiting Vietnam and Bali Indonesia this place was amazing. We accidentally run into this place by walking to the end of station 3. We just happen to be the only guest for the 3 nights , yet it was so special as the manager was our Chef... And provided us massage lady each night in our own room, and... More

We found the Monkey house after looking at lots of hotels and guesthouses on section 1 and 2. The monkey house, located on the end of section 1, has the most magnificent view. the room was right above the water, we saw the beach and blue- turquoise water. we could even see and follow the blue long fishes from the...

This is a real find. A true gem in the travellers hand book. My room (as the other 2), was a simple hole carved into a rock. Spacious and pretty- double bed, colourful bedding and cushions, net with a large seating area and separate shower/wet room. Waves crash under your floorboards and the only noise you hear is the breeze... More

We stayed here for 5 nights back in March '11, and had such an ace time that we fitted in another 4 days at the end of our trip. The location is ideal for those looking to stay out of the busy part of white but within walking distance of all the nightlife and activities. The place is very small... More

We found Monkey House by chance and enjoyed 4 blissful nights there during our stay in Boracay. If like us, you are always on the hunt for clean, no frills accommodation with breathtaking views then Monkey House should be at the top of your list. We were kindly informed by Arthur that our room was the one used by then... More
