Quiet and Natural in Cabilao

Hi, we’re Cesearia and Cerilo and we live in a very nice house in Cabilao island. We have no kids and a big house so we welcome you to stay with us. Cesarias family live next door, and the island is small and easy to explore. You will love snorkeling on the reefs of Cabilao, enjoying the laid back way of life, and soaking up the nature. There are many great snorkeling and diving spots which you can get to on foot or rent a habalhabal (motorbike taxi). Cesaria is a barangay official so she is very active in the community of Cabilao.  Cesaria would be available to help you tour the island and give suggestions for things you can do, she will also introduce you to her family. Welcome to Bohol, don’t miss the small island charm of Cabilao!


Homestay Description

Cerilo has worked abroad as a seaman and subsequently the house is large and luxurious by Philippines standards. If you like your comfort but still want to experience the culture of the Philippines then this could be a good homestay for you. The house is large and could accommodate 4 people.

This is a big house with two separate living areas, one in the new part of the house and one in the old. The family eats dinner in the old part of the house, while the new house is kept for special occassions.


You will love the reefs of Cabilao, it is a beautiful island that hardly any tourists get to. When you arrive you will wonder why more people haven't discovered this small island! You can check out the barangay (community) fish sanctuary, snorkel, dive, watch the sunset from the lighthouse, spend out a day at the beach, enjoy the nature and serenity in the evenings.
