Andrew, James and Keiko have an awesome little set-up in a unique spot on Siargao Island. Good boat access to surf spots on and off the map, places that they're sure you've never been there.
Food and lodging is also awesome, fresh tasty meals and comfortable rooms for either couples of mates. Can't go wrong in terms of relaxation.
It's Paradise - not much more to be said!

The Greenhouse has a great location to just relax and hangout in your own little retreat, while also being perfectly located to surf all the best spots in and around Cloud9. James and the crew there know all the best spots and with their two boats and knowledgable boatmen, if there are waves to be had, they will find them. There location in the at the reef break, is also a perfect location for the boat trips. They re building something great here. Jamie.

Room Tip: All are great. Just work out your travel dates.

Fantastic facilities. Fantastic warm staff. Awesome waves with a boat on-call. Delicious food and a quiet location on a beautiful and largely untouched island. James was our host and did a brilliant job at taking us around the island, showing us great surf spots and generally being great company. Need I say more...

I'm going back and I've convinced my friends to go too.

I stayed at Greenhouse for 5 days in October 2011. Our cottage was recently renovated and very comfortable. It had a great covered porch that we spent most of our time hanging out on when we weren't surfing. We also ate all our meals at a picnic table on the porch which was quite nice. The food was really cheap and fantastic. No exaggeration, fantastic. Breakfast, lunch and dinner were all hearty and delicious.

Service was also good, both the local staff and owners were more than accommodating.

Surfing was great. We went out in a group every morning and afternoon. Very few spots were had any significant amount of other surfers. A few times we had to compete some for waves but 95% of the time it wasn't an issue. Greenhouse's boat took us to wherever the surf was breaking that session. Really fun way of getting to know the other guests, the staff and the owners (I came with a friend but wouldn't hesitate to return by myself).

Siargao is really unspoiled as many tourists don't know about it. It's more difficult to get to than the more popular spots in the Philippines but (in my opinion) totally worth it. If possible, I would strongly recommend flying directly to Siargao as opposed to flying elsewhere and taking the ferry (which we did and proved difficult).

Overall, the place was amazing. The slightly cheaper options on the island didn't look nearly as nice and the more expensive options were much, much more expensive.

I have stayed in Siargao on numerous occasions with the last 3 at Greenhouse. The location is great for relaxing on the luxurious lawn, swimming in the lagoon, or taking boats surfing, snorkeling, or exploring. Andrew and James are gracious hosts and the staff is very accommodating. This is the perfect place for total relaxation or hardcore surf trips (or both). There are a variety of activities on offer at Greenhouse such as surfing, boating, SUP, snorkeling, exploring on the boat or motobikes (available for rent) and some small but eclectic nightlife. The menu at Greenhouse has a variety of international and local items that are healthy and delicious. Be sure to get the banana coffee milkshake (or something along those lines)! Accommodations are super comfortable and the design and decor of the buildings are warm and inviting. I truly could live here! Thanks for all of the good times Greenhouse, I will see you again soon.

Visiting Siargoa and staying at Greenhouse would be rated as my top holiday to date and I will no doubt return for another visit. The remote island is the perfect island bliss with hardly any vehicles, tarred roads or shops where you can really get that authentic feel of the culture with the locals. It is a true escape from the busy real world yet has everything you need for a comfortable stay.

Green House was our choice of accommodation and after seeing what else there was available on the island I would by far rate as the best. The beach bungalows right on the waters edge are beautifully designed and comfortable. The bathrooms are clean and modern and the overall accommodation and gardens are kept very clean. Moreover the team of people that look after you whilst you are there are so friendly and go out of their way to make your stay an amazing one. The food that we had every day was out of this world, there is snorkeling equipment, surf boards, body boards etc that can be used and a boat with a driver to take you out to the top surf breaks, islands etc.

Staying at the Greenhouse was definitely one of the best parts of visiting Siargao. The Greenhouse is located on a beautiful, secluded beach not far from Cloud 9. One of the best parts of staying here is the use of the boat to take you to your favorite surf breaks, snorkeling, or wherever you want to go!
The bungalows are beautifully furnished with comfortable beds and a perfect patio to enjoy some shade in the heat of the day or to relax in the evenings.
The best thing about the Greenhouse is the friendly staff members who are more than willing to go out of their way to make sure you are having a great time!
