A superb Pension House which is strategically located, super clean, very accommodating couple/owner and reasonably price. Eva was so helpful since I am a solo traveler, she took time to look for me at park so that she can help me take pictures. She arranged all my transportation and informed me of the best place to eat.

Great place, really clean and good bed with good airco. We got a lot of help from the owner (Eva) who took care of everything ( transportation to whalesharks + tumalog falls) also she helped us get the right busses to moalboal. Her english is really good. Search no longer in my opinion!

Eva and here family are doing a good job to have your stay memorable. The guest house with the small but nice garden is very clean. Everything is working including good WIFI. They don't offer food but there is small self service area where you can get drinks and snacks. I can recommend this place! During high season, make reservations!

Sanne, Raoul, Femke, Milas en Dennis had a great time together with Annah (12 years). They spent a lot of time together with... More

Great hospitality by the owners, we visited Cebu not knowing that it was the typhoon season; we arrived at about 5pm after our 4 hr bus ride from the city - it was drizzling + electricity was all cut off! Due to a cancellation, they moved us from the "family room" (which was the only room available online) which had... More

I was also here 3 years ago and the thing I remembered most about this place was the service and the kind and friendly owners. This has not changed. We were greeted like old friends with smiles and hugs. Eva is a great host and their honesty policy really does sum them up. All foods and drinks can just be... More

Strategic location to have awesome Oslob adventures (Whale Shark, Sumilon, Tumalog, etc.) Thanks a lot Rene and Eva for nice hospitality during my short stay in Oslob last week. They can arrange transportation to and from whale shark and sumilon area as well. Definitely will back here once I visit Oslob again
