The staff at the homestay were exceptional. Always very helpful. There is very little around the homestay. You need to rent a motorbike if you want to get around. The staff were able to arrange transport for my group, but it was often pricey, so I would recommend renting a motorbike. The beach is very quiet, but the water is a little rocky. All in all, a very nice stay, but there is nothing in the vicinity of the homestay in terms of eating.
The hosts were exceptionally attentive and accommodating. Their concern for their guests was endearing. They had a tricycle prepared for us whenever we needed, and often would remain with us throughout the day. The food that was prepared was deliciously bountiful and affordable. I recommend the calamari. The accommodations were simple but comfortable, don’t forget to ask for blankets as the A/C can get cold overnight. We were stunned by how clean the home was, nearly spotless! We had privacy on our own floor across the terrace and bathroom. The beach was a brief walk directly behind the house. It was phenomenally beautiful, isolated from tourists, powdery white sands and crystal clear water when the sun unraveled from the clouds. Be cautious of sea urchins and the numerous starfish you’ll encounter. Beautiful in low tide as well. You can buy buko from the vendor along the beach. Kawasan falls and Cangcanalog falls were a short tricycle distance and should not be missed. Perfection!
It was very easy to communicate with Chris and housekeeper Susan. We had a nice time over our stay. The rooms were clean. Susan helped us around the house. She served dinner and breakfast at our request. We were very satisfied with our stay.
We enjoyed our stay at this place! It was immaculate and peaceful. The housekeeper cooked us food at very reasonable rates. The place is a walking distance from the beach.
“We couldn’t have asked for a better experience than the one we had at Lambug Beach Homestay. The location is absolutely stunning, and the house is beautiful, modern and comfortable. The hospitality and service was above and beyond. They were super accommodating and helped us with all our needs. They helped us organize transportation to and from the house and cooked the most delicious meals for us! The beach is out of this world! Like you are living in a tropical desktop background from a computer. The water is perfect and clear, and has an unbelievable reef just off the beach full of beautiful corals and I even saw a sea turtle.
My only “recommendation for improvement” would be to have a larger sign, or a sign off the main road to help visitors find it upon arrival, and maybe offer a tutorial on how to properly flush the toilets (we clogged it a good many times 🙂 , but the host were more than helpful and gracious to us. Would love to go back, wish we could have stayed longer!!! I almost didn’t want to post this review because I would like to keep this place a secret, it is that special!”
“If you want to go somewhere which is outside of the usual tourist bubble, this place will not disappoint. The house is about two/three miles away from the village Badian. It is completely out of the way but you are less than a minute away from the most beautiful beach I have ever seen. White sands, warm tranquil waters. The air con worked well in the rooms and the shower was in good nick. We stayed in the dorm rooms which were comfortable. Chris was not there when we stayed at the house but the house sitter, Isabelita (hope I’ve spelt that right) was a perfect host, she helped us get back to Cebu City and cooked for us everyday. Word of warning there are no shops or restaurants nearby, people have shacks with refreshments but this is it, so you will need to eat your meals at the house, but in my opinion this added to the experience it is completely isolated, but make sure you befriend someone with a tricycle and they’ll give you lifts for a fee. Locals are also very friendly. Was a magical experience!”
“We had a wonderful time at Lambug Beach Homestay… Thank you for the very nice and comfortable accommodation. Your home is very nice. And my family love their stay there. We will definitely comeback.”
“I am writing to express our appreciation for the quality of service with our stay at Lambug Beach Homestay. It was a good decision. We enjoyed the peace and quiet stay we needed. This definitely added to the excellent service of the staff, #Susan & #Manang. We will definitely recommend your hotel to friends and family, and I’m sure we’ll be back there. We hope to get the same quality of service when we return. Thanks again, and see you soon.”
