“Wonderful Holiday Home for families and groups”
Reviewed August 1, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Everything positive has been said by previous reviews, but I can honestly say that I have never felt safer or more comfortable in the Philippines than staying here!
I contacted the owner, Vincent after my initial enquiry because the dates we wanted were not available. He explained that this was because of some extension work, but that he would make the Villa available on part of our stay at a discounted rate. Due to no fault of the owner, the booking system (holiday rentals) double discounted the booking and he contacted me to inform me of the error. In all honesty I was disappointed and didn't react brilliantly. Vincent, however was an absolute gentleman and we resolved the difference fairly quickly.
Our pick up at the ferry terminal was First Class, unlike a so called high class hotel in Cebu, we were met with a suitable sized vehicle for a party of 6 plus luggage, and the transfer was included in the rental! A real bonus.
Jedy advised us to pick up a few items on the way to the Villa and this is where experience can advise future clients to plan what they would like to eat, request that you stop by the local mall/shops to pick up some groceries (unless you eat out) we were poorly organised in that respect and wasted a little too much time looking for basics like salt, seasoning etc.. Only important if you want to prepare your own food in this very well equipped kitchen!

Jedy and husband Rizal, are as previously mentioned, very helpful, likeable and trustworthy people and I regret that we didn't have more time to get to know them better. We had a family member with a 4x4 car but the advice that Jedy gives is spot on!

The Villa itself is to a high Western standard with Air Con in all rooms except bathroom and kitchen. The aircon in the main bedroom is not that loud really, it just happens to be right above the headboard but we found the best way was to cool the room before bed, leave the time for about an hour and let it go off, or else, just use the fan, after all you need to adjust to the tropical heat in any case.
The badminton, volleyball and pool facilities were enjoyed by all... make sure to put on deet based mosquito repellent if playing around sunset and beyond, otherwise if you are like me or my youngest son you will be bitten.
Internet, wifi and large flat screen TV are added bonuses but not keen on most of the tv channels to be honest.
The village and surrounding area is very safe, friendly and you do not feel pressurised at all. My eldest son was enjoying the local kids jumping off the pier to cool down and asked to join in. The kids were great and realising they were being videoed, they all put on a bit of a show and made him feel very welcome to be part of the group. My wife who was very reluctant at first to leave the Villa was getting up and going to the local Sari store for essentials, like eggs, milk etc. on the back of a motorcycle for a very small cost (10 pesos). When we got back to Cebu (today) she said she wants to go back.

Travelling from Cebu was the only stressful part of the experience and I was not impressed by the WEESAM Express ferry service. The staff were not very friendly and tried to charge full for kids and senior despite asking for their ages. On the return, we got to the terminal to find they had cancelled the sailing but they offered a refund. As the ticket was a round trip promo we only got back half which left us out of pocket because we had to find around 1000 pesos (13/14GBP) extra for single tickets with another company (2Go)
The Villa is perfectly placed for travel to Alona or Doljo beach. Worth checking which way the wind is blowing before deciding on the right one to swim and enjoy.
Final word on the Vila, it was so nice to see a little family background in photos on one of the walls. It is clearly a place that was built with family comfort and enjoyment in mind, reinforced with the family connections Vincent has in the village.
Great trip, great value and WILL be back!!!

“A Perfect Choice.”
Reviewed November 19, 2012 for a stay in November 2012

Many tourists are now preferring to rent a holiday home, more romantic if a couple and often more practical if a larger group, this villa offers great flexibility whatever your choice.
Situated in a private secluded location near to Panglao Church the villa stands detached in it's own ample grounds along a 20 metre drive from a side road yet withing walking distance to local stores and the church.
The property has been thoughtfully designed and tastefully decorated with a wonderful feeling of space and comfort. Vast living area with dining table and soft seating at the other end around a super satellite tv with an incredible library of DVDs and first class air con. The Kitchen/Breakfast room is sumptuously eqipped, modern gas hob and new oven under, massive fridge and all the culinary gear you could wish for. Two good double bedrooms plus a twin bed with bunk, bath with shower over. Secend bathroom/wc and washroom adjoining the villa. Outside is a large terrace with dining table and chairs, lawned area, sunbeds and badminton court (raquets/volleyball provided), pool table also.
Complete security included and a truly marvellous lady called Jedy who will organise anything for you including transport, tours and a very cheap laundry service, she's a star!
I loved the villa and it obviously does well as very little accommodation of this size on the island. Alona Beach is ten minutes drive, Island City Mall in Tagbilaran is handy for food etc and the owners provide a free shuttle service for pick up and departure.
Very good value indeed and a very smooth no hassle booking service. Wifi among the fastest and most reliable experienced in the Phils.

“Perfect for those looking for peace and quiet!”

My party and I (4 adults) had a very enjoyable stay at the Panglao Villa. Jedy, the property manager, was extremely helpful and accommodating! She arranged for all our transportation needs, from private car drivers to boat reservations for island hopping, even working miracles when we asked for a seaport pickup at the last minute. She would also stop by in the evenings to make sure we were okay. Orlan, the guard, was also instrumental in making us feel at home, answering the many questions we had about the local area. The property itself was very clean and well maintained, we found it more spacious than the impression given by the pictures. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking ware, more than enough to produce a home cooked meal. The bathroom was cleanly, with adequate hot water as well. We were absolutely delighted to have wifi in the villa! What impressed us the most was how peaceful our stay was; the villa is situated far enough from the larger roads and tourist traps to be a quiet retreat, but we did not feel isolated and had easy access to nearby resorts and beaches. All in all, a terrific stay, and a place I would readily recommend to anyone planning to visit Bohol/Panglao!
