“Gem of a place in the most idyllic setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

After 8months travelling through Asia, we found our 2 weeks at the Greenhouse to be the highlight of our travel experience! The accommodation is top notch, carefully designed and comfortable rooms are spacious and well priced. The owners and staff members are a friendly and genuine bunch who go out of their way to assist you and make your stay that much more special and memorable. Surfing and snorkelling gear is available for hire and excellent surf breaks present themselves just a short Greenhouse boat hop away.

I left The Greenhouse and Siargao Island vowing to return, as it was truly one of the best places I have visited. My wife and I shall be seeing you again, soon!

The Greenhouse is an excellently run eco-friendly series of bungalows on the beach in the secluded island of Siargao. I first met the proprietor, Andrew Russo, via a mutual friend and have stayed there twice since. The Greenhouse is a surfer's paradise, a short walk from Cloud 9 surf break and my personal favorite Tui Son. My girlfriend also enjoyed it, and visited the rock pools and special (non-stinging) jellyfish on boat trips from the Greenhouse.

The rooms are comfortably furnished, each having WiFi and a speaker system to play music while relaxing between surf sessions or chilling out during the heat of the day. The showers are artistically done with beautiful smoothed rocks and the houses are done traditionally in all wood. There was a loft upstairs suitable for kids. The Greenhouse has a nice quiver of boards available for vacationers.

The staff are all locals, personally trained by Andrew and they are a great bunch. They're also much better surfers than I, but gave me a lot of leeway in surf etiquette to go for the sets I wanted and were always friendly.

The crabgrass lawning is fun to relax on, and play a game of cornhole or bochiball in the evening with a cold beer.

An experience I'll never forget is awakening in the morning to the gentle sound of surf lapping against the shore and looking out to a sunny day and awesome waves breaking around the point.
