This guesthouse was totally rad!! I stayed here for 6 nights and the owner Joel actually got his boy to come and pick me up at Caticlan airport. From Caticaln to Boracay it is about 40 or 50 minutes as you need to get a tricycle to the jetty, a 15 minute boat ride to Boracay, then another tricycle to the guesthouse. It only costs about $5 to $10 at the most for all of that though.
The guesthouse itself is run by a very friendly bunch of people and they loved me and my sense of humour. My sense of humour is somewhat idiosyncratic at times, but they accepted that and just let me be myself. I can honestly say that Filipino people are for the most part non judgemental, and certainly not as patronizing as some people are in some of the other South East Asian countries
The beach and shops are only a short work away and in the evenings they had some great entertainment on the beach, namely the firedancers. I also went scuba diving during my stay here, and I can honestly say that the diving here is on par with Phuket and the Great Barrier Reef!
If I ever do come to Boracay again, I would certainly stay in this hidden gem, that few people seem to know about.
