Other things to note
LANGUAGES: Everyone in our team speaks English. Hans also speaks Dutch and German fluently, and some French. Additionally, Richie speaks both Bisaya and Tagalog.
INTERNET: For better WiFi signal, we have installed a 60-feet high antenna tower that receives and send Internet signal with around 20 Mbps. You can log in to our WiFi with your smart phone or desktop (Please ask for the password when you are here). As a rule, the signal is available 24/7. There may be short interruptions or slow connection periods, though, depending on the weather.
TARGET GROUP: We especially welcome young people who are are open to learn about foreign cultures. Artists will have enough place for painting and sculpting. Families are also very welcome, as we have a young daughter (born in February 2021) and she is always happy to meet new playmates.
SPECIAL NEEDS, ACCESSABILITY: Alas, our facilities are not adapted for guests who need a wheel chair or have difficulties walking.
BABIES and TODDLERS are welcome, but parents should keep an eye on them at all times. Our lot is huge (8,000 sqm); it is farmland and not padded with pillows. There can be sharp edges, thorns, ants, stones, barbwire fencing, etc.
SUN PROTECTION: The sun can be very hot in Bantayan. Please bring enough airy clothes, shorts, slippers or sandals. Wear a hat or a cap, a light shawl, use enough sun blocker, especially in the first days. If you want to walk through rocky or bushy terrain, we recommend wearing sneakers of closed shoes.

The Philippines belong to the 65 poorest countries in the world. Prices for lodging, food, and transport are much lower than in Europe or the USA. But this also means that technology and cultural habits can be different from what you are used to:
ELECTRICITY is supplied by Banelco, the Bantayan Electricity Collective. Sometimes, there are power outages, lasting from 20 minutes to several hours. We can neither predict nor influence such incidents. Luckily, the situation has greatly improved in 2021☺ As we have our own water tank, we still have a water reserve during power outages.
ANIMALS & FRUITS: There are no known poisonous animals on our lot. Centipedes may leave a painful bite, though, but they are rare on our lot. If you walk through high grass, the ants may find you. Put some cream on their bites, and do not scratch them. We recommend following the paths on the lot, and not go barefoot. Please don't eat berries, fruits and mushrooms you are not familiar with.
FIESTAS: Philippine popular cultures includes fiestas, weddings or birthday parties, with disco or karaoke music. Occasionally, this also happens in our neighborhood. Sometimes, we know about this before, sometimes not. If such an incident disturbs your sleep, we will hand you a cashback discount, in accordance with the severity of the disturbance. We are in constant touch with the Barangay Captain to support considerate behavior within our barangay community.
