Beautiful summer house in a spectacular location overlooking the South China Sea. The house sits on a very large private property with 2 km of private coastline (of which 600 meters are white sandy beaches). The mountains in the background - covered with rainforest - form a spectacular backdrop.
We like to eat fresh and healthy foods, so we have a large organic garden with vegetables, herbs and spices. We also keep French chickens (free range) for eggs and meat. Freshly caught fish can be had daily from a nearby fisherman's village. We hope our 3 Labradors and 2 Persian cats will make you feel at home the moment you arrive. During the daytime you will most likely be enjoying the surroundings and the beach. At night you will fall asleep, soothed by the sounds of the waves and the rainfore...Beautiful summer house in a spectacular location overlooking the South China Sea.

During the daytime you will most likely be enjoying the surroundings and the beach. At night you will fall asleep, soothed by the sounds of the waves and the rainforest. The house comes with a gardener, a cook and a caretaker. If you wish, the hosts can also cook for you. My wife Theresa is very talented and highly passionate about cooking. She does wonders with all the garden fresh ingredients.
All rooms are en suite and have a view of the ocean (from your bed). We have built several private hideaways around the house, where you can enjoy the view and the sea breeze with a book, a cocktail or a cup of tea. Or just have a lazy afternoon nap in a hammock.
Other amenities of the house include a gym, a petanque court, a bar, a yoga platform/view deck and an outdoor kitchen. Planned amenities for the near future are a Zen Garden, a wood fired brick oven and a zip line that will take you from your balcony straight to the beach.
We are leading a comfortable yet low impact life style. We produce our own veggies and meat, make our own virgin coconut oil, natural bug repellents, yoghurt and cheese. We cook using only the freshest ingredients straight from our garden. We avoid chemical additives and processed foods. If you wish to learn or participate in our organic farming, you are very much welcome. We have some live stock to tend to as well (cows, pigs, goats, water buffaloes, chickens).
To help keep our carbon footprint low, we ask all our visitors to plant one tree each. Either a long living fruit tree or a tropical hardwood tree. We provide the seedlings (at cost) and make sure the tree will prosper.
Our place is ideal for:
* Families with children
* Couples looking to spend quality time together in paradise (hidden away from the rest of the world)
* City dwellers looking to reconnect with Nature (from the comfort of a serviced villa)
* People who favor a healthy life style
* Nature lovers
* Adventure lovers (off road biking trips, trails, hiking, river crossings)
* Beach & Ocean (swimming, snorkeling, surfing, fishing, paddle boating, bonfire / BBQ)
* Mountain River (swimming, fish spa, BBQ)
* Jungle (hiking on old mountain trails, native hunting trails, bird watching)

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Amazing Villa! The view of the beach from our room was always a sight to behold upon waking up. In the evening, the waves from the beach will lull you to sleep. The food! Herwig has all his...More
In a word ... Fabulous. I travelled with my wife and 3 children (25, 23, 21) and stayed for 4 nights using the 3 main rooms. We had such a great time and the combination of Herwig as host and the wonderful environment, meant we...More

We stayed here with the full meal plan for 9 days in the Ylang Ylang room. As other reviewers have said, the scenery, food and beach are incredible. What makes this place so much better than a luxurious hotel (other than the price!) is the...More
We spent four nights at the villa last week with friends and the hosts. The hosts are amazing people...accommodating, gracious, friendly. Theresa's cooking is amazing, I've not had better filipino fare in the 10 years I've been there. Herwig is at your beck and call...More

The Villa is located on the West Coast of Palawan. Unspoiled by mass tourism and little known, except to the locals, this is where the most stunningly beautiful beaches of the island can be found. The rainforest remains intact. Indigenous people, who have lived here for generations, have long kept the beauty of the area a secret. The roughness of the terrain has kept main stream tourism out. It is now yours to enjoy from the comfort of our Villa.
How to get there
The Villa can be reached via a very scenic and partially unpaved route through virgin rain forest and along coastal roads. Expect to see monkeys etc. It is a one hour and 15 minutes trip from the airport to the villa by car. For those of a more adventurous nature, we can recommend public transport (Jeepney). This will take longer and may not be as comfortable, but you get to experience how the locals travel. We can arrange airport transfer (php 3500/van/transfer). We pick you up from the airport or hotel and take you straight to the villa. Couldn't be easier.
