Make a holiday rental villas or property in the Philippines your home away from home

There are some 7,000 islands that make up the Philippines of South East Asia, all of which have a unique atmosphere, yet all share in their stunning natural beauty and warmth of their inhabitants. The largely laidback atmosphere, widespread use of English and cheap flights make Philippines holidays fantastically accessible from the UK, and as more people return from Philippines holidays with tales of stunning surroundings, excellent food and bountiful coral reefs to explore, more and more people are taking the trip to Philippines accommodation.

Things to do in the Philippines

The Philippines are well known for their sun, sand and sea holidays. There are almost infinite beaches in which to relax, and the coral filled waters make Philippines holidays the perfect solution for snorkelling trips. The waters of the Western Pacific are the warmest in the world, and as a result, the tropical marine life here is absolutely phenomenal, known to be the highest marine biodiversity in the world, with over 2,000 species of fish alone. The Philippines are an excellent surfing destination too. You will never have to share a break with other surfers.

The Philippines are one of the most undiscovered holiday destinations in the world. There is still so much to discover, and so many islands to investigate that should you seek adventure, love the feeling of discovery and want to relax without another tourist in sight, Philippines accommodation is an absolutely perfect option. The scenery of the Philippines are absolutely beautiful. The turquoise seas and shear cliffs make for sensational viewing too.

There are over 60 different ethnic groups living in the Philippines, and as a result, the mixed cultures make for quite wonderful holidays. The cuisine is hugely varied, with many Chinese and Spanish influences. Fruit is abundant, and many dishes are served with wonderful vegetables cooked in garlic and vinegar.

Weather in the Philippines

The Philippines enjoy warm, humid conditions all year round, with average temperatures of around 28˚C, but the year is divided into two seasons, the wet season, which runs from Jun until November, and the dry season that lasts from December until May, which is considered to be the best time to travel to the Philippines. This is also the period when the most exciting festivals and events occur.

Travel to the Philippines

The two main entry points into the Philippines, Manila’s Ninoy Aquino International Airport (MNL) and Cabu City’s Mactan-Cebu Airport (CEB), are both well connected to flights in Europe, America and Asia, with flights to the Philippines from the UK largely provided by Singapore Airlines, and taking in the region of 17 hours.

The unit has everything you may need and the interior is beautiful although i would recommend having a car for the best stay experience. Thanks Ms. Malou!

                                                            My only regret about my time at Island View is that I didn't stay longer. Kelvin and Glenda bend over backwards to make sure their guests' holidays are trouble-free and completely relaxing. From the minute their driver Danny picked me up from the pier (free of charge) to when my hosts dropped me back there (again free) the entire holiday went without a hitch. The villas are adorable, with polished wooden floors, large HD TV, small kitchen (with fridge/freezer, microwave, kettle and basic cooking utensils), strong air conditioning and a compact bathroom. The villa's little balcony looks out through coconut trees and palms to the sea and catches afternoon breezes, but there are other bigger communal bar and garden areas that guests are free to use. The communal pool is just a few steps away and surrounded by colourful bouganvillea. The villas are a short walk from Libaong Beach (which is itself a short drive from the more touristy Alona Beach). I loved the fact that there mainly just locals enjoying Libaong and just a handful of resort restaurants. I had dinner at Dumaluan Resort each night and the food was superb (seafood bbq) and very reasonably priced. The restaurant is beachfront and they have really good singers performing in the evenings between 7.30pm and 10.30pm. For those who prefer to cook, Kelvin and Glenda will arrange shopping expeditions to the supermarket at Tagbiliran and are very helpful with advice. They also helped me book a firefly cruise and a day tour of Bohol Island, both of which were very competitively priced. My main reason for visiting Panglao was to dive and their lovely driver Danny dropped me off at the dive shop in Alona Beach each morning (a 10 minute trip) and I would get a tricycle back when I was done (the tricycles are a motorbike with a canopied side cart, cost is just 150 pesos). The day before I arrived Glenda texted me to ask if I would like to join the family on a snorkelling trip to Pamilican Island. How kind is that? By the end of the trip I actually felt like part of the family. One week was simply not enough. I cannot wait to get back.
