Hosting Locals – Cabilao Island Homestay

We’ve mentioned in this post that Philippines Homestay has hosted travelers from 16 different countries so far this year.

We’ve mentioned in this post that Philippines Homestay has hosted travelers from 16 different countries so far this year. We’ve also mentioned that one of those countries is our beloved country, the Philippines! While majority of our guests are foreigners, we’ve also hosted Filipino travelers who opted for a different kind of experience.

Now, we can also add locals to our list of customers! Cesaria and Cerilo, our homestay in Cabilao Island, have recently hosted a couple of Boholanas and a Cebuano.

Elvie, a boholana, has posted photos on her blog and has this to say about the beach in Cabilao Island:

“Thinking of the white powdery sand, crystal-clear-blue-green-waters always make me dream for my next adventure. I even thought that those can only be found in the famous Boracay. Little did I know that I can experience it again, never having to venture far because it is within my province of Bohol – the paradise called Cabilao!” – Elvie

Kristian, who is from Cebu and is currently based in Tagbilaran City, was also awed by the white beach in Cabilao Island:

“I must say the beach in Cabilao is one of the best beaches that Ive ever seen. It is beyond perfection. The white fine sand and the crystal waters are way enough to satisfy your needs for beauty and relaxation.” – Kristian

Cesaria even prepared an early dinner at the beach while waiting for sunset:

“A few minutes then, our generous host called us for an early evening dinner! Where? At the top of the sand bar! While waiting for the sunset! :) :)” – Elvie

A happy experience not just for our guests but for Cesaria and Cerilo as well. Elvie shared:

“I can still remember Ate Cesearia’s happy surprise when she said “This is our first time to host locals.” Yes, local tourists (FILIPINOS), why not? 😀 The sweet hospitality of our fellow Kababayans was worth it.” – Elvie
