Bantayan Beach Side

Homestay Description
Venus and Gabriel have a spare room which they would love you to use. The house is simple, concrete style with one room for the living area, and another room where they sleep. The cooking is done on a fire outside the house. The beauty of this homestay is the close proximity to the main Santa Fe beach which will mean you can be on white sand bliss in sub 2 minutes! Beautiful! Bantayan island is a great place to relax, island hop, or bicycle around the flat streets. It has an atmosphere of a laid back Philippines island with tourism making only a small dent on the day to day runnings of the place.
Homestay Features


There is a separate room and bed for you in this homestay. It is cute and comfortable but just separated from the living area by a curtain.


Until our bathroom is renovated we will allow you to shower with our sister Jean. Her house has a proper shower which is quite nice. It is cold but the island is hot so it is nice to cool off.

Living Area

A simple living area with bench seating and, clean, comfortable. We have a television and some seating but the living is simple.


Beach it, grab a bicycle and ride around the island, island hop to nearby islands on a local style banca boat, hire a motorbike and pass the many chickens that provide eggs for Cebu, Mindanao and Luzon! Head to the market with Venus, or to Octong Cave where she used to work, bond with the community over a game of basketball.


The location is set in Santa Fe town just one house back from the beach. The town is close if you want to be a tourist, but the vibe in the area is local! Great to be so close to the beach!

Comfort Level

Overall this is a local style concrete house, clean, tidy but definitely not luxury!


Venus speaks amazing English and this is one of the benefits of this homestay! She will be able to answer your questions easily about life in the area, as well as things you can do during the day. She will do her best to entertain you and has a great laugh. The rest of the family is shy in English but she can translate.


Simple Filipino style food from a lady who wants to own a restaurant someday!
