“Gorgeous surroundings,complete comfort and a feeling of being home.”
Reviewed January 6, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

There's not enough time or space to describe how amazing this place is. Ekhaya is a stunning property in one of the most beautiful, tranquil off the beaten path places there is. The home is clearly a labor of love for Arnold, Nell and their son Tommy - there are personal details in everything from the housing unit to the stairs and stone inlays around the property down to the dock and hammocks and organic gardens they are cultivating. We were there with 2 families, we had a 2 yo and 4 yo who woke up excited everyday to go down the stairs and greet the wonderful friendly dog Tula (or "tula rula" as my 2 yo called her) and go to the area of sand to play or the infinity pool. The food was amazing and cooked fresh to order every time. The nutella banana pancakes, lamb samosas, fresh made pizza, were all amazing. We were there for Christmas and Nell et al put up a tree for us so the kids could wake up to it. They shared a homemade Christmas feast with amazing turkey, stuffing, roasted vegetables as well as sparkling wine. It definitely felt like home. You can watch heartbreakingly beautiful sunrises and sunsets every day. Arnold can arrange wonderful local boat tours to surrounding islands as well as wreck diving leaving from a neighboring dock, there is a ton to do but you'll just want to spend plenty of time sitting by the pool or in the pool and watching the sky and bay as well. VERY relaxing (even with small children). The lodging is very comfortable high ceilings, AC if you want it that works well (good for our kids for sleeping) the bathrooms are beautiful with great rain showers, there is a queen bed and a pull out queen sofa in each room perfect for 2 families. Kitchenette was well stocked but honestly with the quality of food they provide you won't want to cook. The only difficulty is the travel part. I would recommend staying away from Cebu airlines. Our flight was cancelled on both ends going to and from Palawan which was the only downside - we lost 2 days of our vacation!!! . Definitely get trip insurance. Arnold, Nell, Tommy and staff are fantastic hosts. You will not be disappointed.
