House | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Excellent house for up to six guests in a 5.5 acre private tropical island. You get the whole island for just you and nobody else. 575 metres of pristine private beach!
The house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, with one of the bedrooms being a master ensuite with an excellent sea view and a spacious walk-in wardrobe/closet. The kitchen is fully equipped and the living room also has a region-free DVD player with many DVDs from around the globe for your entertainment. The house has a nice balcony where you can relax whilst appreciating the sea. The fact that the house was built on top of the hill gives you excellent sea views from many spots around it.
The island has a 7m x 3m swimming pool and a tennis court, both with excellent sea views, and also a fully shaded hammock. It is within 30 minutes boat ride to major diving sites including shipwrecks from a major WWII naval battle that happened nearby in 1944. A fully equipped diving school is nearby. Some points of the island have 3G signal, so if you have a local SIM card you can get broadband internet from the beach under the shade of the mangroves.
The employees live outside of the island and only come from 9am to 5pm to give general maintenance to the garden, pool, electric generator and water supply. They can cook and/or do the laundry for you at an additional cost, as well as offer guided boat tours of the area, also at an additional cost. If you prefer total seclusion for a romantic trip or honeymoon (and are happy to operate the electric generator / solar power yourself) the employees can leave you alone and only come for 2-3 hours every other day to confirm everything is alright.
To get to the island from the local airport in Busuanga is also easy: if you already come with your basic food supplies (at least for the first two days, the employees can buy you food for the remaining days and bring it on the morning following your first day) you can get a driver to leave you at Hikari in 75 mins and another 30 mins boat ride will take you directly to the island. If you live in London you'll notice that this is less than it takes to get to Heathrow Airport depending on where you live!!!
PS: Aircon is supplied to the master bedroom only, other bedrooms have ceiling fans. Fans and Aircon are activated only from 5pm to save electricity and be gentle to the environment. The house is well ventilated during the day as the front and back doors were projected to be in the way of main winds.
