    Welcome to our home in the mountains of South Cebu!

    At 2200' above sea level, this is the place to get away from cityscapes, disconnect, relax and unwind. This is our home we built in 2006, with our 7 guesthouses or as we call them, guest "casitas with 360 views of beautiful mountain-scape.

    Our home in the mountains is a socio/eco-tourism project that started in 2006 - up in the cool mountain village of Lepanto, Alegria, Cebu - and is ongoing.

    The concept is to nurture and develop the existing beautiful and rich natural resources of the local people, flora and fauna in their own environment, and allow our guests a unique opportunity of experiencing this in accustomed comfort, peace and security. Your stay at whether for a few hours, days or weeks, will undoubtedly enrich your lives and others.

    Along with our own family home, we built on a separate part of our land, 7 guesthouses, or as we call them guest “Casitas”. Surrounding the Casitas is farm-land on which we have tried planting a few things over the years but the land is so large and our knowledge too little for us to have kept it up!

    Aside from farming, the list of things to do up here is endless: from taking care of our animals, helping to build our new backpacker wing, or renovating our existing property, to even helping guests staying in our homestay! Let us know what you are keen on doing and we will definitely find something for you!

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    Travelling to the Philippines, specifically the provinces outside of the capital, can be a culture shock to most travellers. At first glance what you might see is a country in poverty, but when you spend time here, you learn that money and material goods is not what defines a man or woman or family out here. Filipinos are a beautiful, happy-go-lucky people who laugh and smile through their adversities and adopting that way of life is something that can't be taught just anywhere.

    Surrounding our Mountain Retreat are literally thousands of hectares of natural landscapes - providing endless adventure activities for ornithologists (bird watchers), walkers, bikers, spelunkers (cavers), hand-gliders, golfers, fishing, canoeing (at Lumpan Lake), climbing, the famous Kawasan canyoneering, ab-sailing waterfalls, bathing in thermal hot-springs….the list is endless.

    The start of the KANLAOB River, which hosts all the Canyoneering activity and which eventually ends in Badian at the Kawasan Falls just a few hundred metres from the accommodation. At this point it’s just a small stream but for the real adventurers this is THE expedition.

    Within 20-30 minutes from our home, the “M-BAM coastline” (Moalboal, Badian, Alegria & Malabuyoc) stretches some 50-60 kms where all the water sports activities you can imagine are possible. We have our own private beach with some kayaks and local “Bangka” boats free for use for our guests and can provide a free shuttle down to the beach or you can rent a car or scooter from us (self drive or with driver).

    If you are just looking for restful peace and quiet, then throughout the day and night you can enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of the gardens, surrounding farm-lands and magnificent 360 "heaven on earth" scenery. Read a book (or 2 or 3), listen to music, write a song, paint a picture, bird-watch, weather-watch or star-gaze.

    GETTING AROUND:

    GETTING HERE:

    While we are far from from it, getting here from Cebu City is a breeze with multiple options.

    1) Subject to availability, we can provide a premium and private transfer from most places on Cebu Island for a small extra charge. A transfer from Cebu City or Mactan International Airport is P4,000 one way or P6,500 return. Please let us know if you want to book this as far in advance as you can as it is subject to availability.

    2) Next up, you can arrange your own grab taxi / airport taxi. The cost of these is up to the driver / taxi company but generally are around P3,500 - P4,500 one way. Please also note that most drivers will only take you to the main town area of Alegria so you will still need to arrange your shuttle up to the mountain to us. We can provide a free shuttle if it is available, otherwise you can grab a couple of motorcycle taxis!

    3) Jimmy’s Taxi - Jimmy is our go-to grab taxi guy who charges P3500 and brings you all the way up to our mountain home but needs to be arranged in advance so please let me know if you want to book Jimmy’s Taxi.

    4) Finally, the most cost effective but longer option is the Ceres Liner bus. This is a big yellow bus you can catch from Cebu South Bus Terminal in Cebu City. The bus you want to hop on is one going "South to Bato Via Barilli". Let the driver know you want to alight at Alegria Municipal Hall. Like the grab taxi option above, you can either grab a motorcycle taxi up the mountain to us, just tell the guy Our Mountain Retreat / Resort name and he will know where to go. Alternatively, if you're not comfortable with the motorcycle option, or its late etc, you can let us know 30 minutes before arriving in Alegria and we can have a shuttle ready for you to bring you up. Alternatively you can choose to head to our beach and be picked up there.

    If you are bringing your own car, let us know so we can free up some space in the garage for you to park in.
