One of the most magnificent tropical architectural masterpieces in the region, the Village House is a prime example of bamboo's versatility as main material for construction. It is built in 2009 by an Amsterdam-based Dutch-Filipino designer in a quaint, laid-back village two kilometers from the main thoroughfare of Puerto Princesa.
The whole house (not just one room) is offered as one accommodation for travelers who have always wanted to experience the real humdrum and colors of a poor and laid-back Philippine village life.
Please note that the village where the house stands is located 2 kilometers away from the centermost part of the city. Public transport (tricycles) are available 24 hours a day. We can arrange an Underground River tour (inclusive of meals, roundtrip transportation, fees, etc.) for only PHP1,600 per person. This tour has to be booked days or weeks in advance due to the sudden huge inflow of tourists.
We offer Airport Transfer for only PHP 300 (one-way) with a tricycle (the local version of Thailand's tuk-tuk). If you want to avail of the airport transfer, please email us and provide your flight details (time, airline, etc.). If you prefer to go straight to our location, please print-out the sketch map provided in this site and show it to the tricycle driver.
There is a bakery and a small grocery nearby where you can buy food items for your breakfast and other meals.
CANCELLATION/MODIFICATION OF BOOKINGS SHOULD BE MADE 7 DAYS IN ADVANCE (local Philippine time).
NO-SHOW, LATE CANCELLATION WILL BE CHARGED THE FULL PAYABLE AMOUNT.
