Historical Background: Historical Background
In early history, Panglao was known to the Chinese, Malays, Siamese and Indonesian traders. Believed to have been ruled by a king and could have become a bulwark of a flourishing civilization or perhaps a citadel of native genuine counterpart to that of Venice, Athens, and Vietnam. It was said that in 1803, the Spanish explorers came to this island's shore to get the supply of water. Few natives making their fishing devised called 'panggaw' were at the shore. A Spaniard pointing down asked what the name of the place was. The natives who believed that the visitors were asking what they were making answered 'panggaw'. Hence, from that term was derived the name Panglao. Abundance of white, fine as powder sand covers the circular coastline of Panglao. Panglao is proud of its name in the Philippines Tourist Map that indicates fantastic paradise beach resorts and dive spots.

About Vincent White
Ex private detective. Now working at Manchester City council.
Why Vincent White chose Panglao Island
A Perfect Choice.
Many tourists are now preferring to rent a holiday home, more romantic if a couple and often more practical if a larger group, this villa offers great flexibility whatever your choice.Situated in a private secluded location near to Panglao Church the villa stands detached in it's own ample grounds along a 20 metre drive from a side road yet withing walking distance to local stores and the church.The property has been thoughtfully designed and tastefully decorated with a wonderful feeling of space and comfort. Vast living area with dining table and soft seating at the other end around a super satellite tv with an incredible library of Dvds and first class air con. The Kitchen/Breakfast room is sumptuously eqipped, modern gas hob and new oven under, massive fridge and all the culinary gear you could wish for. Two good double bedrooms plus a twin bed with bunk, bath with shower over. Secend bathroom/wc and washroom adjoining the villa. Outside is a large terrace with dining table and chairs, lawned area, sunbeds and badminton court (raquets/volleyball provided), pool table also.Complete security included and a truly marvellous lady called Jedy who will organise anything for you including transport, tours and a very cheap laundry service, she's a star!I loved the villa and it obviously does well as very little accommodation of this size on the island. Alona Beach is ten minutes drive, Island City Mall in Tagbilaran is handy for food etc and the owners provide a free shuttle service for pick up and departure.Very good value indeed and a very smooth no hassle booking service. Wifi among the fastest and most reliable experienced in the Phils.·

Guestbook comments from the owner
Wonderful Holiday Home for families and groupsReviewed by: Andy L from Durham, United KingdomReviewed on: 08/01/2013 for their stay in 07/2013193275 - panglao villa bohol philippinesEverything positive has been said by previous reviews, but I can honestly say that I have never felt safer or more comfortable in the Philippines than staying here! I contacted the owner, Vincent after my initial enquiry because the dates we wanted were not available. He explained that this was because of some extension work, but that he would make the Villa available on part of our stay at a discounted rate. Due to no fault of the owner, the booking system (holiday rentals) double discounted the booking and he contacted me to inform me of the error. In all honesty I was disappointed and didn't react brilliantly. Vincent, however was an absolute gentleman and we resolved the difference fairly quickly. Our pick up at the ferry terminal was First Class, unlike a so called high class hotel in Cebu, we were met with a suitable sized vehicle for a party of 6 plus luggage, and the transfer was included in the rental! A real bonus. Jedy advised us to pick up a few items on the way to the Villa and this is where experience can advise future clients to plan what they would like to eat, request that you stop by the local mall/shops to pick up some groceries (unless you eat out) we were poorly organised in that respect and wasted a little too much time looking for basics like salt, seasoning etc.. Only important if you want to prepare your own food in this very well equipped kitchen! Jedy and husband Rizal, are as previously mentioned, very helpful, likeable and trustworthy people and I regret that we didn't have more time to get to know them better. We had a family member with a 4x4 car but the advice that Jedy gives is spot on! The Villa itself is to a high Western standard with air Con in all rooms except bathroom and kitchen. The aircon in the main bedroom is not that loud really, it just happens to be right above the headboard but we found the best way was to cool the room before bed, leave the time for about an hour and let it go off, or else, just use the fan, after all you need to adjust to the tropical heat in any case. The badminton, volleyball and pool facilities were enjoyed by all... make sure to put on deet based mosquito repellent if playing around sunset and beyond, otherwise if you are like me or my youngest son you will be bitten. Internet, wifi and large flat screen TV
