    Additional Location Information
    Din-iwid beach remains untouched by the relentless development at White Beach. It is still the "Old" Boracay.

    There are restaurants right at the beach for sunset drinks or intimate dinners at: Wahine, Mama's Fish Restaurant, Nami.

    Din-iwid and White Beach are linked up by natural deserted cove and a stone pathway. It offers the best post card view of White Beach.

    stroll to:
    Din-iwid beach, 5 minutes
    Golf course, 6 minutes
    White beach, 6 minutes
    Boracay Terrace, Fridays, Discovery Shores, 6 minutes
    D’Mall, 12 minutes

    transportation to/from, tipping unnecessary:
    D'Mall share tricycle 30.00PHP
    passengers on the back of motorbike - late night 60.00-70.00PHP 1-2PX

    Boracay Terrace, Fridays and Discovery Shores are best approached from the Din-iwid Cove. This part of White Beach is breath taking.

the house is at the top of the island at Dinwid beach which is a small beach and not to many people.Boracay itself is over crowed and I can not see it staying as the Philippines top holiday spot. This is why the house at Dinwid is so good as it is away from the main stations 1 2 &3.There... more

Management response:

Oh no, I see why you needed curtains. The plants that were strategically placed to act as cover were blown away during the super storm last November. It has been re landscaped and they look rather grand. Right now, it is filigree, rather sexy. On August, it will be back where no curtains are needed at all. I believe in... more

Upon arriving at Diwa House we were greeted by Sharon who was very welcoming and helpful. The house itself was absolutely beautiful! The pond and gardens were well kept and the decor of the house was very stylish. The house is located near to Diniwid beach which was lovely! The Spider House is a must visit as they have a...
