“Nice location for a photo shoot”
Reviewed 23 August 2014 via mobile

The place is well preserved. Should you wish for a trip back on time this is the best place to be.

Entrance fees are P50 per person and P5000 for a three hour shoot.

“Flashback”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

If you want to time travel to Cebu in the late 1800s and discover how Cebuanos live at that time, this is a great place to go. The house is well furnished and it feels like you've stepped into the 1800s.

If you are not in a hurry, stay at their garden for awhile.

“Personalized Tour Made The Difference”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

Just another old house...except...the personalized tour by a very amiable, friendly, helpful, local boy (mid 20's?)...what can I say, but he made this an exceptional visit. He took photos in every room, knew the complete history of both families (Yap of China and San Diego of phils married), and made what probably have been a dusty and boring museum tour into a vibrant experience reliving earlier days in Cebu. I should have done justice with his photo and name but he made the tour delightful and memorable.
