“Relaxed and Cozy!”
Reviewed 18 February 2013

We spent 2 nights and Bea and the girls made us feel right at home.
The rooms are small & basic, but super clean. As are the shared bathrooms and the communal area.
Nothing better than having brekky on the tiny balcony whilst gazing at the terraces.
The place is located close enough to town to be convenient, but just far enough away to escape the noisy hustle and bustle.
Great value for money!
Thanks Bea.….we'll be back. :-)

I found the rooms to be a bit pricey, considering they don't include private bathroom. That said, they are clean, have a view and are reasonably comfortable. The bathrooms are also well-maintained.

Location is good- a bit far from the chaotic market area, but close enough (~5 min walk) not to feel isolated.

Breakfast is ok, but not included in the room rate and is actually a little bit pricey.

By far the key selling point of this place is the service. Bea will really do whatever she can to help you out with your planning and I think this makes the difference between a good trip and a great trip. Within an hour of our arrival, one of their staff was sitting down with us, and helped us plan two days worth of treks- at quite reasonable rates.

If you are strictly looking for good-value rooms, maybe you can find them elsewhere if you do your research. But the service here is excellent, which is something you don't often find in budget guesthouses in the region.

2/2-5に宿泊しました。世界一周の旅の最初の宿がここだったのですが、一人旅と知って、オーナーのベアやその家族が気を使ってくれ、幸先のよいスタートになりました。本当の家族のように心からもてなしてもらったおかげで寂しさを感じる余裕なんてありませんでした。むしろこれからはどうしよう?と心配なくらいです。宿はとても清潔で居心地良く、窓から見える景色が最高です。バス停からは近いのですが、バナウェの中心地からは程よく離れているので、夜は静かで星がとても奇麗です。バナウェの景色と彼らのおかげでフィリピンが大好きになりました。

I stayed there from February 2nd to 5th. It was the first stay of my global tour and a good first step. I never felt lonely owing to their hospitality like real family. Banaue Homestay is clean and comfortable and the view from the window of the dining room is superb. It's very near from the bus station. And It's very quiet and you can see starry sky at night since It's located in suitable distance from the center of Banaue. I came to like Philippines very much because of beautiful views of Banaue and Bea and her family's warmth.

I spent two nights in Banaue Homestay and really enjoyed it. The rooms are basic, but good. The common room is a good place to meet other guests. And Bea and the others were great! If I ever come back to Banaue, I know where I will stay...

I have to preface this by saying that we did not get to make our planned February 2013 trip to the Philippines due to some unfortunate circumstances. However, I did communicate a lot with Bea while we were planning our trip and she was exceptionally helpful. She answered questions about all sorts of things not directly related to her homestay including transportation and help booking with other homestays in Batad. Her answers were always very prompt, friendly, and informative. We are hoping to make our trip at a later date and will definitely be staying at this homestay if we can. Also, the quoted cost was very inexpensive.

We luckily ended up in Banaue Homestay after our reservations at another place fell through. We couldn't be happier with our stay. The Homestay was a brief walk to the town centre and allowed us easy access to the town amenities like the pharmacy and shops. The rooms were clean and well-maintained. We appreciated the availability of hot showers after a long day of trekking to Batad. We felt very well taken care of during our stay and I can't emphasize enough the kindness, friendliness and welcoming nature of everyone at the Banaue Homestay.
