“Relaxing and Private”
Reviewed June 10, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Our stay at Michael and Gloria’s beach was the mini vacation we have been wanting for a while.
Quiet neighborhood, a little away from the city noise but not too far you cannot go when you need to do something in the city. The whole property was exclusive to us, which I like. I don’t have to be bothered by people using the pool too early in the morning or too late at night. We cooked our own food, the whole house had everything we needed. Hot shower, comfortable bed, fully functional kitchen, spacious area, good water pressure. We do not watch tv (so I cannot comment on that), fast internet connection, good view of the ocean and Apo island. Friendly, humble and generous hosts, I became friends with them.
To illustrate how I liked our stay here:

6:00 am: I’d get up and sit on the porch, look up at the bright sky, the Apo island, the ocean, a few fishing boats and feel grateful how blessed I am to be experiencing all these. God is so good!

6:30 am: I’d dip in the warm pool while waiting for husband to get up. Sort of my morning exercise and alone time.

7:00 am: Enjoying breakfast on the porch overlooking the ocean and Apo island. Having morning talk (bonding) with husband. We daydream, we laugh, we talk about anything and everything while sipping our favorite juices. (Coconut for him, four seasons for me).

9:00 am: While husband checks our business back in the USA via internet—-I talk to my friends and family in the Philippines via phone and Facebook while laying on the hammock, and still enjoying the ocean air and view.

4:00 pm: We’d go kayak for a while, or snorkel, or dip in the pool again, or just walk along the beach, feeling the happiness of the kids playing and swimming near the shore.

7:00 pm: We would stay on the porch again to recap our day. Evening conversation with husband, listening to waves of the ocean. I wish I brought playing cards and board games with us. It would’ve been really fun. Like honeymooners.

I recommend this exclusive beach home to honeymooners, or couples celebrating anniversaries,small families who want to just relax and bond together, a small group of real good friends who just want to relax, laugh, have barbecue, talk. Those who want a comfortable, relaxing, safe and exclusive place to enjoy their vacationfor a reasonable price.

I suggest bringing board games, sungka (something not digital/internet). Cook your own food, it’s more romantic. Dip in the pool under the starry night after that. Just eat, converse, laugh and savor every moment. Enjoy life!

“Georgous Beach House with a Stunning View of Apo Island”
Reviewed June 6, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

If you're looking for a place near Apo Island, a SCUBA divers and snorkelers paradise, that provides luxury and solitude, something none of the dozens of nearby resorts will give you, look no further than here at Gloria's Beach House. Apo is right out your front door.....waves crashing on the beach.....palms swaying in the breeze, a beautifully manicured lawn, parking area, onsite caretaker, your own swimming pool, kayak, kitchen, air-con if you want, hot and cold showers, gated entry way and sea wall. Just a few minutes’ drive to Malatapay Market (a large open air market and livestock sales event which takes place every Wednesday, where you can experience what it's like to be a local), and is also the stepping off spot for catching a boat to Apo Island, one of the beast SCUBA and snorkeling areas in the Philippines. If you don't want to cook for yourself, numerous resorts are nearby with restaurants, or choose one of the locals hangouts in the towns of Dauin or Zamboangita, which you will be about half way between. Also, the house is far enough from Dumaguete to keep you out of the hustle and bustle of city life but at the same time not so far you can't go there for dinner or shopping if so inclined, it's about a 25 minute drive away, with plenty of public transpo nearby or do like I do and rent a scooter / motorcycle when in Dumaguete for the duration of my stay. Gloria will be glad to offer suggestions and is a wonderful and friendly host, she treated us like family while we stayed and my wife and I have made a longtime friend in her. Overall, this place is a great value for the money and just a fabulous place for a vacation and she also does rent it out for family parties, etc., so if you live in the area and are looking for something of that nature, give Gloria a chance to help you out.
