You'll be hard pressed to find a similarly inclusive experience anywhere else in Puerto Galera, and certainly not at this price! Check out our WEEKLY and MONTHLY rates, that offer discounts off the nightly rate.

Please note that we can also rent you just the master bedroom in this condo, with all of the same inclusions as the full condo rental, at a lower price. Only difference is that you will have a 3 guest maximum and we will be staying in the 2nd bedroom. Please contact us for further details on this option.

We are proud to offer you our spacious 112sm, 2+ bedroom, 2 bathroom condo overlooking beautiful Puerto Galera Bay. It's luxurious for a lone traveler, or the perfect place for a couple, family, or group of friends, looking to experience all the beauty of one of the Philippines most famous SCUBA diving & nightlife destinations.

Surrounded by a JUNGLE of green, the condo is located in a peaceful, upscale neighborhood, with foreign owned estates & top resorts as neighbors. It's a great retreat from the crowds and noise of White Beach or Sabang, which are both still just a simple drive away.

The property is right on the MAIN ROAD--an easy 5 minute ride by tricycle or a 15 minute walk from downtown Puerto Galera. In the other direction Sabang is a 10 minute tricycle ride, or an invigorating 45 minute walk. Also a convenient 1km walk or ride to the beautiful, peaceful Encenada Beach.

An ADVENTUROUS 300m Path goes right from our property down to Puerto Galera harbor with access for our boats... In the opposite direction, another very steep 100m path, goes right down to the beach, that's just 200m from Encenada Beach.

Enjoy lounging in the large living room, with the 50' TV offering ~60 international channels and dvd player. Both bedrooms also have their own cable tv's.

Or spend your time enjoying the ocean view, and music on the iPod/iPhone stereo, out on the 35sm COVERED TERRACE.

Enjoy the freedom to cook your own meals with our FULLY FURNISHED KITCHEN. Or walk across the street to the delicious and affordable Easter Island restaurant. Or if you are looking for fancy cuisine and a full spa treatment, just 300m up the street, the luxurious Utopia Spa & Resort accepts walk in customers!

AIR CONDITIONING in the master bedroom, which can also be used to cool the whole condo if the windows are closed and interior doors open. Electric fans in all other rooms keep it nice and cool. The inside area is kept immaculately CLEAN, to avoid mold, dust, pollen or other allergens.

We suggest a maximum of 7 people for complete comfort and privacy, but we have mattresses to fit as many as 14 guests comfortably.

* There is a queen size bed in the master bedroom.

* There is a queen + single bed bunk-beds in the family bedroom.

* Additionally, we have 3 extra queen bed mattresses and 2 more single beds in bunk bed format.

These extra beds can be used in the main living room, as well as in two 'den-like' sleeping areas that can be conveniently sectioned off from the living room for privacy--functionally, they are 2 extra bedrooms.

* Additionally there is a comfortable single bed sized couch in the living room that works great for one person sleeping, and one small mattress, that's great for a child and fits in any room.

Everything about the condo & your stay is FULLY FURNISHED. Complete bed linens, towels & toiletries, as well as everything you need in the kitchen, including all plates, bowls, cups, glasses, pots & pans, and a stove, turbo broiler, oven, BBQ & full size refrigerator. We also have a washing machine, drying machine and clothes lines for drying.

And best of all, we are happy to include an English speaking FULL SERVICE MAID within your rental rate. That's Right, from 7am to 5pm daily, you will have a trustworthy, eager, smiling Filipina lady to clean the house, wash your clothes and cook your meals, not to mention share a friendly chat, at no extra cost. Or, if you want some extra privacy, feel free to send her home early...How can you beat that?!

Did I mention that I'm a Marine Biologist, Dive Master and experienced local Tour Guide? Yup, I'd love to help you explore all the beauty of the local area. I can just give you advice & help you plan your daily adventures OR I will be happy to lead you on daily excursions, anywhere around Puerto Galera, as your full service TOUR GUIDE all within your rental rate (excluding my food & transportation costs)...

I have been living in Puerto Galera permanently for 8 years, so I know all the local sights, activities, culture and pricing structure very well. English is my first language and I am fluent in Tagalog (Filipino), so I can be the perfect INTERPRETER for my guests, especially if it's your first time to the Philippines. Note that many Filipinos speak English, but not all of them, and most not well, or with an accent. So having me help you in conversing for travel instructions or to get better deals can be a big help!

I offer this service because it is a great opportunity for me to get out, practice my guiding skills and stay current with everything going on in my beautiful town of Puerto Galera. I have experience getting the best prices on all of these activities. I do NOT take a commission or overcharge on any of them. I can do this because I have another real job--I do this just for fun!

Additionally, I have a nice camera that we can use anywhere on land, and an underwater camera to use on boats, snorkeling & even diving! I will be happy to shoot photos of all the adventures throughout your stay....That way you can keep your hands & mind free to enjoy the moment.

I will transfer all the images to your laptop or send them to you by email at the end of your stay! Many people say this service is the 'icing on the cake' about why our condo is the best place you can choose to stay in Puerto!

To top it all off, each morning an UNLIMITED BUFFET BREAKFAST of fresh fruits, eggs, bread, meats and other delicious treats, plus coffee, tea, milk and juice is included for all guests!

All other MEALS can be cooked for you here by us, but we will need to plan ahead and you will pay for the ingredients, plus a small fee for the service. Also included all day long is an UNLIMITED supply of juice, iced tea, coffee and purified water for drinking, cooking and brushing teeth.

Unlike many accommodations in Puerto Galera, we have very STRONG CLEAN WATER pressure, 24/7, and a great hot water shower.

Also unlike many other places, we have a Quiet GENERATOR on site, that will be turned on in case of occasional town power outages, at no extra charge.

We have a locked, covered GARAGE, to safely park your car or motorbike.

Our Free WIFI works great (by Philippine internet speed standards), all around the condo for up to 5 devices.

You are also welcome to use our color printer, scanner and computer, in moderation, all for free...We also have a reliable phone service that you can use to make local or INTERNATIONAL CALLS to anywhere in the world, that we will let you use totally for free--again, in moderation.

We have 6 sets of SNORKELING GEAR that you can use any time, for free! Now that's a great deal because this gear would cost you at least $4 (p150+) per set, per day to rent, if you were lucky enough to find somewhere that had them!

You can also borrow beach towels to take to take on your adventures.

We also have an inflatable stand up PADDLEBOARD and a 2 person KAYAK, as well as children's life jackets and floatation devices, all of which can be borrowed any time, for free.

We are happy to just point you towards the water, or guide you on your ocean adventure at no extra cost.

We have access to a proper boat that can fit up to 10 people, and we often arrange ISLAND HOPPING for our guests, at a very reasonable rate... This is probably the best way to truly experience the finest natural qualities of Puerto Galera and a lovely way to spend a day of snorkeling with the fish & corals, playing and enjoying a scenic picnic on remote island beaches!

We can also arrange luxurious private SAILBOAT cruise charters around Puerto Galera or beyond.

Puerto Galera is world renowned for having some of the finest tropical coral reef SCUBA diving in the world. If you love the water and already dive, or want to learn, don't miss your chance!

As a Dive Master, I can also help you get all set up for SCUBA diving at an excellent local dive center and even be your personal dive guide, all at very affordable rates!

Did you know that even if you've never dived, I can arrange a safe and exciting Discover SCUBA Diving course for you that only requires 1 hour of classroom studies and then you go for 2 great beginner dives, all for a very affordable rate!

We can organize free round trip transport to X-TREME SPORTS, where you can enjoy paintball, lazer-tag, go-cart racing and 4-wheeler mudding, as well as sticky-wall, zorb ball, and a mountain zip-line!

We can arrange MOTORBIKE RENTAL for your stay at the best discounted rates. We can also arrange bicycle or motorbike tours around the island of Mindoro.

SABANG is an extremely popular destination for foreign guys, famous for its vivid NIGHTLIFE and I'm familiar with all the hotspots, prices, local rules and culture. It is just a short ride from the condo and I will be happy to accompany you there on your first visit, to make sure you are comfortable and have the most possible fun.

WHITE BEACH is awesome, with tons of beachfront dining and watersports. I can take your there too!

About Michael Perret

I'm a marine biologist and very proud father of 3 beautiful girls. I grew up in a tourist town on the coast of Maine, USA, but have lived for 8 years now in the SCUBA diving destination of Puerto Galera, on a jungle island in the Philippines......

We have a second place to stay in Puerto Galera, and love to supplement our own travel fund by renting out 1 room or our whole spacious 2 bedroom ocean view condo. The price includes a full service maid and tour guide and so much more...SERIOUSLY...

English is my first language and I am fluent in Tagalog (Filipino), so I can be the perfect interpreter for my guests, if it's your first time to the Philippines. Note that many Filipinos speak English, but not all, and most not well, or with an accent, so having me help you in conversing for travel instructions or to get better deals can be a big help!

I am also a tour guide and SCUBA dive master, so if you're interested in a truly memorable vacation, ask me how I can help!

True to classic Filipino hospitality, no request is too large or too small--we are delighted to take care of your every need to make your stay spectacular!
