“Fantastic place!”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

I went here for a surf retreat and had an absolutely wonderful time. The cabanas are great. The one I stayed in had two twin beds and another room with a double. There are racks for surfboards, a sound system that hooks up to your MP3 player, a hot plate and pots, dishes, and a small fridge. The bathroom was great and the outdoor shower was nice for a quick rinse after surfing. The outdoor porch was perfect for lounging and the fruit bowl in the outdoor table was welcome for munching between activities. Just wish the wifi was a little better but a quick trip to a hammock or sunbathing chair fixed that right up.

The boats were arranged for us through the camp but they were great and the 9'6" Santa Cruz was a great ride. Just minutes away from Hawaiian Jack's and 15-30 minutes from many other sites. If you're adventurous, just walk on down to cloud nine and watch from the boulevard or join in.

The meals were to die for. Definitely try the Banana Oh dessert if you have a chance, banana-cookie-ice-cream deliciousness. I wish I could keep eating those meals every day.

The new yoga space/dining area was a treat. Do an afternoon practice overlooking the beach and maybe you'll have some local kids as spectators. So cute!

The staff are super friendly and really accommodating and the owners are super friendly and just great people.

This was a slice of paradise. Idyllic.

We have travelled a lot with our two kids, but this guesthouse is our favorite olace ever. We fall in love with the lovely house, the amazing landscape, the very friendly and peaceful atmosphere and the staff who was great. Lucky you if you stay there!

The Greenhouse has set a new standard in service and style. The staff and surroundings cast a bewitching ambiance that demand you leave your troubles behind. The contemporary design of the rooms would allow for any group, be it family or friends, to feel comfortable. They are kept clean with a well stocked fridge, mosquito net and speaker system. Each of the rooms have been mindfully placed so that they provide privacy, even on the cozy deck. The staff seems to be one big family that works together to make your island experience the best it can be. The food is plentiful and tasty, and there is always someone there to help you plan your day, or show you something new. Thank you for the great stay! Can't wait to go back next year :)

This was such a wonderful place to spend my Philippine surf holiday. The Greenhouse rooms are very comfortable and roomy and the food was excellent! They did a great job when the designed the grounds. Beautiful views and surf right out front. Having the boats right out front really helped out with getting to the waves quickly and not wasting valuable time. I'll be back to Greenhouse next year and i'm looking forward to it and enjoying the experience again. Thanks!

I''ve stayed at the Greenhouse a couple of times and am dying to get back as soon as I can! The place is really nicely located, close to all the best beaches and it is nice, quite and very peaceful! This place is great for lone travelers and families alike because of the beautiful beach in front and the serenity of the surroundings!! The staff is very welcoming and extremely helpful with everything you need! The owners and staff are very attentive and always looking to fulfill all the customer's needs!

If you're going to Siargao to surf, these guys got the place wired and they have two boats, so you'll be able to surf the best waves that match your surfing abilities!

Can't wait to get back to surf the excellent waves of Siargao and to relax and chill out at Greenhouse!

Go there and you'll for sure be a happy, satisfied and relaxed customer!!

Room Tip: all the bungalows are beautifully made of hardwood and all have oceanviews!

James, Andrew, Keiko and the pinoy staff have created a dream. Paradise found..breezy cool hardwood bungalows, wide verandahs, lush garden, freshest food anywhere on the island...Sitting in the hammock, watching the boats bobbing in front of your own beach entices you out to surf. Oyong the captain will guide you to the best waves on any given day, and charming Julietta, the manager will take care of you in and out of the water. Herman, aka 'los pollos Hermanos' is a bbq and grill master. Boat trips, bike hire, surfing lessons, diving, fishing, massage and mango shakes all hooked up. These guys are connected.
Of all the beautiful islands and beaches with bungalows, this is one of the very few that combines all the best elements. Greenhouse is a place you will always come back to.....and feel welcome.

Sometimes, late at night, I'd swear I even heard the whoop of a monkey in the banana palms...but James explained this was just the wind.......part of an island dream.

By far the best place to stay on Siargao if you want to surf, relax and be away from the crowds closer towards Cloud 9. With access to a boat right at your doorstep with the ability to go to any of the dozen of more reefs within the area you could not choose a better spot. Other local boats will only take you to Stimpys and Rock Island which can become very crowded.
The staff at Greenhouse are amazing and the bugalow and beautiful hardwood, spacious and clean. The balconies are perfect for relaxing and enjoying the food and a cold beer! I totally reccommend Greenhouse if you are going to Siargao
