Property Description

One of the most magnificent tropical architectural masterpieces in the region, the Village House is a prime example of bamboo's versatility as main material for construction. It is built in 2009 by an Amsterdam-based Dutch-Filipino designer in a quaint, laid-back village two kilometers from the main thoroughfare of Puerto Princesa.

The whole house (not just one room) is offered as one accommodation for travelers who have always wanted to experience the real humdrum and colors of a poor and laid-back Philippine village life.

Please note that the village where the house stands is located 2 kilometers away from the centermost part of the city. Public transport (tricycles) are available 24 hours a day. We can arrange an Underground River tour (inclusive of meals, roundtrip transportation, fees, etc.) for only PHP1,600 per person. This tour has to be booked days or weeks in advance due to the sudden huge inflow of tourists.

We offer Airport Transfer for only PHP 300 (one-way) with a tricycle (the local version of Thailand's tuk-tuk). If you want to avail of the airport transfer, please email us and provide your flight details (time, airline, etc.). If you prefer to go straight to our location, please print-out the sketch map provided in this site and show it to the tricycle driver.

There is a bakery and a small grocery nearby where you can buy food items for your breakfast and other meals.

    The staff Roy is really helpful in everything. The location of village house is good that you can go anywhere in this town by tricycle, although you need to walk through a small road to the main road(just 1 min). The environment around is wonderful, it's nearby the real local life. Will chose again if I go to puerto Princesa in the future.

    Very beautiful little house in the middle of a very simple place where there are only local authentic people. The streets full of playing kids. Wonderful experience! Roy was very friendly and did his best to make us feel comfortable and have a wonderful time. Thank you so much! Only downside may be the roosters, but we didnt care much and had a wonderful sleep in a very comfortable bed with mosquito net. Highly recommended!!!!

    You will stay in the Village (like the slum), but it is an amazing exsperience. It is an authentic way of travelling, you are living with A local family. Don’t exspect any beach close by, you have to take a tricycle to sabang or honda Bay (1-2 hours). But the house is sweet, the family so helpfull and the area really nice to see. No one is doing anything to you, except saying hi. Only thing bad is the roosters and dogs at 3 pm in the morning!

    The village house is lovely & Roy is very helpful I think the price can be cheaper for location & overall property Especially cheaper for lone travellers. The location is ok but there is not much to do in Puerto Princessa I would not recommend the Honda boat tour, it is waste of money & too expensive for what you get the organisation is awful the islands are dirty & the lunch food awful. Better boat trips in El Nido.
