Property Description

The house was constructed sometimes in 1920s when Mr. Balili was still a bachelor.

The house served as the venue of grand social functions of Tagbilaran which were attended by prominent political and social personalities from both local and national levels.

One of those grand gatherings was the meeting of then President Roxas with Elpidio Quirino, a senator then, former governor Perfecto Balili, the brother of Eladio and some other important local political personalities.

In March 1942, the war (WWII) reached Bohol. Tagbilaran was occupied by the Japanese Imperial Army.
Almost everyone evacuated the town. The fine Balili house was requisitioned for use by high ranking Japanese officers where social gatherings were still held.

The house which still stands today, still carries the marks of its past grandeur that manifests how the Tagbilaranons lived their lives in the past.

    The biggest allure for me is, the house is a piece of history. So expect an older house/ harmless bugs & spiders, but the house and beds are clean, the AC works well and the common areas are great places to hang out and meet people. The staff were helpful, especially with coordinating scooter rentals. They also made breakfast for a small price so we could relax in the morning and begin our days ready to go. We greatly enjoyed our stay and would stay again.

    Great location, beautiful house and the most amazing hosts you can ask for! They will do everything in order to make your stay even better! We stayed at Oasis during the crazy corona-chaos and they went out of their way to help us - called the local tourism office for us and arranged everything so we could come home. They even packed us a lunch free of charge the day we had to leave. Arguably the best service you can get, and if you are ever in Bohol, Oasis Balili Heritage Lodge is a must stay

    STAY HERE!!! Large lockers in dorms, controllable air con, mosquito nets, free glasses of purified water, tasty breakfast options, motorbike rentals, and the fastest wifi! The owners (Gloria & Ray!) & staff of this cool, beautiful heritage house are amazing & really make you feel like part of their family. They are great to “come home to” after a day exploring Bohol!! (Panglao Island is a quick & scenic ride from here if you want the busy touristy beaches) Close to a supermarket too! Very secure

    Such a lovely family that run this guesthouse! Everything and everyone was perfect and couldn’t help us enough. We booked a private room and it was quirky and comfortable. Also the mansion is always kept super clean and there are always staff around to help with anything. We were recommended loads of things to do around Bohol and panglao - we had an awesome time here! The breakfast is cheap and tasty! You get 1 free coffee a day and free filtered water. Hot showers and good wifi!

    Heritage site at a bargain price with generous and warm staff and owners. Accommodations are simple, but it is a rare opportunity to stay in a residence of historic importance to Bohol. Location is ideal. Walk to restaurants, the ferry, shopping etc. across the street is a lovely albeit higher priced cafe, and a modest priced insala. Setting is off street, so noise is at a minimum. Accept… roosters and neighbors singing karaoke pop, nice. Relax.

    Welcomed by lovely staff. The owners are also lovely. Breakfast was reasonably priced and absolutely delicious. The rooms were clean, only thing is we heard a lot of outside noise from early hours in the morning. The house is beautiful, and it’s in a good location for exploring what Bohol has to offer. Lots of helpful information provided so you can plan your trip.
