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.

    This was my second time to be in this place and same homey and warm feeling from the front desk to the helping and accommodating owner of the place who let me store my silvanas in their fridge. Thanks very much for the wonderful time, the location was near the seaport, malls and museum, food and drinks and karaoke are available just in the premises and they also have scooter rental for a budget price.

    Gloria and her team are incredible at hosting guests..from the minute you arrive into this beautiful heritage house you are made to feel sooo welcome! Only 5 minutes from the port, the place offers BBQ food and Karaoke until your heart content! I love Gloria's ethos of giving back to the local community and as a guest you really are immersed in FIlipino cultural life. So true.. "It's more fun in the Phillipines" at this place!. Thank you guys & girls - you were all truly amazing!

    My only regret is that we didn't stay here longer! The owner was so friendly and truly made us feel at home. The staff bent over backwards to help us. They helped us book a tour (very last minute) and made sure we didn't get ripped off by trike drivers. Beautiful house, lovely rooms, and super clean! I only marked down security as we weren't actually given a lock for our room, but nothing was stolen so it was all ok. Would definitely recommend and would love to come here again with more time!

    Very nice rooms with AC and facilities. This is a mansion modified into a hostel. Bathroom and showers are super clean, good food places right outside. Being in the city is kind of far from Chocolate Hills and other attractions, I rented a bike for 400 per day and drove for hours to the attractions. Nice driving roads but very long drives. Staff were amazing, nice to talk to and very friendly people. They’ll have information about every attractions and transportations.

    Great little place in the middle of town. Not much to do around the town but very convenient for the port. The owner is lovely and there is a little night market with drinks and food at the gate. Would recommend
