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.

Gloria and Ray are simply the kindest people I have encountered traveling. From the moment I got there, I felt like family. Not only do they provide a stay in one of the most historical homes in Bohol, they go above and beyond to provide you with an itinerary for your stay in Bohol. I was planning on staying only 1 night, but because of its great location I decided to stay 4. It is very easy to access all other parts of the island, and who could want more than a temporary home while traveling.

One of my best stays I had so far!! The location is very central in the city of Tagbilaran. The owners and their staff are such nice people that the hostel will feel like home pretty soon. Owners or staff are always there to have a chat with or to give you good recommendations of what to do or how to get around Bohol. 100% recommended- if you go to Bohol stay at Oasis Balili 😉 PS: Thanks to everybody at the hostel for the great stay I had the past two weeks!

A beautiful house with a brilliant shady garden oasis to relax and catch the breeze to keep cool! The avocado tree is a real feature! The staff were so helpful with organising tours, transport and giving recommendations and the hosts are lovely and always good for a chat and tips. Everyone was so welcoming and friendly! Close to lots of food, shops, laundry, and transport such as tricycles and the ferry. Power outages were a bit of a bummer but nothing to dissuade me from coming back
