From Tagbilaran airport, you take a pleasant winding road along the coast, the landscapes interspersed with quaint towns, coconut groves, rice fields, rivers and mangroves. In about an hour and forty five minutes, you find yourself before the gates of Pure Shores Villa. Enter and find yourself in different world betwixt sea and sky. At your back looms a mountain, its aerie perches home to a Philippine sea eagle that flew by the villa everyday. Pass through a beautiful garden full of tropical blooms and a pool at cliffs-edge that skims the horizon then find the azure sea,with its marine sanctuary lying at your feet. The villa of wood, stone and glass with a thatched roof is centrally located, tastefully furnished and allows the wind to flow through unimpeded. The staff, led by villa manager May, welcomes you with warmth and a smile, ready to assist, suggest and accommodate. Villa owners, Dean and Marcelle, are extremely kind and genteel hosts, ready to go over and beyond to make your stay as pleasant and memorable as possible.
In the early morn, after the rain, catch a full rainbow on the sea from your seond floor balcony. In the evening, a tree by the pool cabana pulsates with a host of fireflies only to be outmatched by a star emblazed sky.
We had an amazing stay at the Pure Shores! The accommodations were everything that we could ask for. The staff without exception were very attentive.
We were able to enjoy the peace and quiet of the villa. The view from the property was spectacular especially the beautiful sunsets.
During the day we could stay and relax or head out on many of the tours that are available in the area.
I would certainly recommend a stay at Pure Shores for a wonderful experience.
We stayed with family in December 2016 and had a great time. The house itself was awesome. High quality materials were used throughout. The hardwood floors, bathroom fixtures, and floor to ceiling windows stood out in particular. The food was great too, with the freshly baked bread (baked on site) being my favorite (served with breakfast and used in the sandwiches on their menu). Definitely coming back!
After a full day of tourism; zip lining, ATV riding and lunch on the Lomock River, that the house manager and Dean helped up set up in advance. We were greeted at the door with welcome drinks, cold towels and a tour of the house. This was completely unexpected and above and beyond what any airbnb host would do. When I booked this home I did not realize it came fully staffed and the staff were excellent-polite and attentive. This is not your typical Airbnb. I expected a clean, comfortable luxury villa. I was pleasantly surprised to receive much more than that.. The beach was a short drive away due to the unfortunate earthquake that ruined the stars. The vill is not a hotel.. This is a luxury villa that operates like a five star resort. You cannot bring in outside food or drinks but why would you want to. The chef will make you anything you want and the menus are complete with many options. We would definitely come back, we created great family memories without having to lift a finger. The owner, the house manager and the staff sincerely want to create an environment that you will remember and cherish forever. Dean and the house manager, May, made a personal effort to communicate with me all of the details that needed to be addressed before, during and after our stay at Pure Shores Villa.
I went to Pure Shores Villa with my family in December 2016. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The villa was tastefully done and the ambiance was conducive for chilling out with the family. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
Our December holiday at Pure Shores Villa was one of the best, most relaxing holidays we've been on so far. I definitely recommend staying here!
It was my second time here at Pure Shores Villa and it was even better than before. Bohol is a great island and I knew that upon my return I had to stay here. The accommodations were wonderful and the staff were very friendly and always with a smile. They also had wonderful service for both for relaxation and adventure. The staff is very helpful when helping to look for things to do around the island. But if your goal is to simply kick back and relax, then they'll do very well in trying to make your vacation as relaxing as possible.
I highly recommend this villa to anyone who wishes to go to the beach and have a wonderful time with their loved ones. The owners are lovely people who are very quick to help and make sure that you have a great stay at their beautiful place.
We arrived at Pure Shores Villa on the evening of 22 December. We were welcomed by pleasant smiles, a refreshing drink and cool towels. As things settled down, we were blown away by the view outside. We just missed the sunset but the sky was a mixture of blue and purple hues resting on a deep blue sea. Our stay couldn't have had a more perfect beginning.
We stayed at the Villa for a total of 3 days and 2 nights. Each night, we went to bed worn but happy from the day's activities. We wake up every morning refreshed and ready for more adventures.
The food at the villa was very nice! They have a limited menu but they had just enough choices to make everyone in my family happy. Everything is cooked to order so we found it best to pre-order our meals.
The staff was friendly, helpful and courteous. Everyone we approached was ready and willing to help us.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Pure Shores Villa. It is a piece of paradise in Guindulman that can provide a bit of something for everyone in the family.
