We stayed here for a week with 6 other family members. It comfortably slept all 8 of us, we loved that there were books available to read. It's lovely having a whole beach to yourself and the views and island hoping were better than we'd had anywhere else all holiday. The two local ladies who cooked breakfast and cleaned for...

A deserted beach, a flower filled garden, and a house that felt like home. We went in Feb, there were winds and the sea was never...

We stayed at both Villa Margarita and Gilligans for a chill out holiday. All the staff were so very friendly and helpful, Arnold and Marilyn at Villa Margarita and Estrella and Erica at Gilligans. The boatman was lovely taking us out fishing on a couple of occasions where dinner was caught. Both houses are spacious and clean with everything you...

Thanks Colin and Paul for your lovely comments. Sorry the weather wasn't in your favour. Kind regards Mal

About the neighbourhood
Flights from Manila to Puerto Princesa:
Palawan is a one hour domestic flight from Manila airport . There are several airlines that service the Manila to Puerto Princessa route, i.e. Cebu Pacific, Zestair, Air Phillipines, Tiger and lastly Philippine Airlines. Book as early as possible to obtain the cheapest flights. As the planes fill the prices increase. Expect to pay from $30 US to $90 US each way. Try to book morning flights to Palawan and afternoon flights back to Manila for convenience.

Port Barton is located on the west coast of Palawan between El Nido and the renowned Underground River. The trip to Port Barton from Puerto Princesa is picturesque as it follows the east coast of Palawan and then weaves through the small villages that dot the countryside. You'll see a wide cross...

How to get there
Most of our guests choose to rent a van from Puerto Princesa air port to our homes. Both 7 and 12 seater airconditioned vans are available from a little more than$100usd. Many choose to take a side trip to visit the very popular Underground River either coming from or going to Port Barton. Port Barton is located between the Underground River and the popular El Nido which is to the north. It's also possible to travel from the Underground River to Port Barton and then on to El Nido. The scenery along the coastline is very beautiful.
