We stayed here last March 26-28,2015. We had our last minute booking and a bit worry because it was already peak season when we able to contact Ms. Cathy. She offered us a free breakfast and free pick-up/return to town plaza. A great offer for a homestay for that price, WOW! Finally we got a place to stay. We arrived... More

My friends and I (total of 5) stayed here back in Sept 2012. The goal was to find a place where we can fully rest and recharge without spending a lot and I must say that this place fit the criteria. What I liked about the place is it is very quiet. All you'd hearing are birds chirping and the... More

Visited Cathys Homestay last June 2012..Recommended for tight budgeted travel.. Spacious and clean rooms.. No tv-not a problem.. Though it has a rocky shore, it's just a walk away to the swimming area in Pagudpud..

This is a late review. We stayed here Oct 17, 2012. Since we drove all the way from Manila - Vigan - Pagudpud, we thought that we'll just stay here for a night since we're just going to sleep and will just transfer to Evangeline's Resort the next day. The room given to us is quite big, there were 3... More

This is highly recommended for budget travelers and for family vacation. Just 100m walk to the nicest beach front. The owner, Mrs. Cathy is a kind humble person and the whole family is very friendly. The rooms are simple and with aircon. The toilet is cleaner than the expensive accommodations nearby. We bought our seafoods from the wet market and... More

We stayed overnight here for 1500 including breakfast. Overall, i think this is for those who are on a budget. Nothing but bed and breakfast. Location: you have to walk for 2-3minutes to reach the area where you can swim because it's in the rocky part of the beach. Rooms: We stayed at room 8 w/c is a room for... More

It's a homestay.. not a beach resort nor even a hotel. when they say homestay it's just a place where you put your stuffs and a place to rest after a long tiring tour of ilocos norte. No TV, no hot and cold shower.. just 3 (maybe queen size) beds which do not have bed covers and short, thin blankets,... More

I work as a Travel & Tour Coordinator/Guide in one of those companies that operates mostly in the northern part of Luzon and catering to guest & tourist could be a very gruesome task specially during summertime, when the weather is scorching hot and tourist flocks to the beach-side hotels. During this season most of the cheap beach-side hotels &... More

I stayed here mainly because of good reviews I read online (especially in forums). However, our experience with this place is worser than worse, so I will NEVER stay here again, EVER. I don't think I am that picky about the places I stay in. My expectations with hotel/inn/homestays usually depends on how much I pay them. LOCATION - It's... More

We stayed here for a night, right after touring Ilocos Norte. Place is clean and quiet, room has no tv and towels/toiletries, but air conditioning works perfectly and bed is good enough. You have to walk a few minutes though to find restaurants and the beach itself, but it's not a hassle at all. Best to take a walk early... More
