We had a very good experience with Turtle Bay Villa and hosts. Peter and Viel were quick to respond to my questions and the answers I received were honest and accurate. We started out with 12 guests but due to work some were not able to attend. Our hosts adjusted the cost accordingly so we were satisfied with the outcome. This was the first time with VRBO/Homeaway that I had to leave a deposit in cash so I was worried about not being refunded but everything was fine in the end.
This house is a small boat ride from the town of Saband which is about a half hour so if you don't mind getting on a Banca in the water then you will be okay. I had my 80 year old mother with me and although we had to help her climb in and out of the boat, we all thought it was a fun time.
The house itself is beautiful and well done and the surrounding area is true jungle so beware of giant bugs and mosquitos. Our helpers Mark, DG and family were all very efficient when we had problems in the house and helped us with getting permits to
the Underground River. The navigators of the bancas were all great sailors and were especially knowledgeable especially since part of our stay was during a storm.
Overall, we had a great time and enjoyed the remoteness and the beauty of the beach and sea. If we were to come back, we would have to definitely stay a few more days. Thank you.
Ray and his family were great. They were receptive and became part of the experience. I wanted to start my vacation learning about the Philippines and mainly the normal people to give me a proper perspective of how their lives really were. I spent 22 days and feel more a little more understanding of how their day to day existence.
