Closer to the house is a garden umbrella with a power outlet too. This IS the Philippines, so the internet is slow and there can be outages :-(

Third stay of me in this nice place. But be aware, this is not a 'high end' holiday resort! The place has some restrictments, but those who apppreciate a nice tropical garden and a unique cottage, will have a nice stay overhere.

Felt nice being back in Orchid Park. enjoyed again the Japanese House. The place has some restrictions, and is perhaps not suitable for everyone, but those who see the whole package can have a wonderfull time overthere. The roosters that get you awake in the morning, you get used at after 2 days, so don't worrie! No aircon, but wind cooled, and if no wind, 2 fans available.

Mooie leuke cottage in een voor deze omgeving unieke private tuin. Verwacht niet het afgelikte nette van een hotelkamer, maar verwacht de charme van een 'buitencottage'. De prijzen zijn ook niet vergelijkbaar, dus appelen met appelen vergelijken! :-) Maar wie een beetje een 'no nonsense' reisspirit heeft, heeft het hier best naar z'n zin. Enkel de hanen die zich laten horen vanaf halfvijf in de morgen kunnen de eerste dagen storend werken, maar na 'n paar dagen slaap je er zo doorheen. Ik mistte na één week vers beddegoed, maar bleek na vraag aan Joop dat je dat gewoon aan de sympathieke Oming de vraag kon stellen en dit werd opgelost. Dus niet aarzelen om iets te vragen. Mensen met de juiste reisspirit vinden hier alvast een mooie tijd!

Orchid Park Positiv: Der Park, tropische Bäume, Früchte, gepflegt, leider ohne zeitgemäße, bequeme Sitzmöglichkeiten. Standart: Honeymoon Suite, außer Sanitärraum Substandart: Das seit 30 Jahren von jeglichen Instandhaltungsmaßnahmen verschonte, heruntergekommene Haupthaus samt Mobiliar, ausgenommen der Speisetisch mit Bestuhlung und das Dach, das während meines Aufenthalts erneuert wurde. Die Verbindung zum Internet ist, wie alles hier, technologisch veraltet und funktioniert nur selten. Skandalös: Joop der Besitzer. Zitat Joop aus seinem Schlafzimmer kommend, als ich um 24 Uhr in aller Ruhe alleine im „Wohnzimmer“ saß, um das ausnahmsweise, aber ausschließlich dort funktionierende Internet zu nutzen: „You are disturbing my privacy“ Joop ich wünsche ihnen vom Herzen, dass mein Review dazu beiträgt, dass sie in Zukunft möglichst selten oder am Besten gar nicht von ihren Gästen gestört werden. Zusammenfassung: Dies ist meine erste und hoffentlich letzte negative Erfahrung mit AirBnB. Dezidiert rate ich von einem Aufenthalt in Orchid Park ab, besonders dann wenn der Besitzer zugegen ist.

Ответ от Joop:
This guest did not appreciate that access to my livingf room and kitchen was given as a favor, because the chairs in the garden were not comfortable enough for him to sit behind his laptop the whole day. In his eyes the favor became an entitlement to sit there with his laptop until after midnight. Even commenting on my private phone calls... This guest is recommended to hosts, who like to be treated as servants. "How long do I have to wait until you flush the floating shit down my toilet". Seriously!

Our stay at Joop's place was fantastic. Close to the busy SM Mall and all public transport yet far enough to think you were in New Zealand with the lush green grass and healthy blooming flowers and trees. From the beginning we were greeted by Oming (Joop's brother in law) and shown the cottage and everything we needed to know. Their are 5 dogs onsite and all are very interactive and friendly.. Botoy the little jack Russell, Mikmik the little white dog and Scooby as I call the father of Mikmik.. The others I don't know names but are friendly.. The dogs will sleep on the cottage verandah but are very well trained and never enter the living area even if you try to call them (perfect training). All dogs also have vet certificates. The pool is great and water is luke warm due to the Cebu sun Oming helped me set up my badminton net and even trimmed the grass where we were playing, Oming is the onsite caretaker and will assist in anything you need or want. Their are approx a dozen Roosters on the property but at a great distance from the cottage and all in one area closer to the road (about 150 meters from the cottage) Plenty of fruit and native trees everywhere and if Joop is onsite he will take you on a property tour down the back and explain the trees and medicinal values, ohh and look for the big mahogany stump. The area if safe, locals are friendly and always smiling. As advertised their is no AC but with the air flow it's just fine... Shower and toilet share the septic tank and work good. Just do your laundry outside so you don't fill the septic with water (if you know about septic tanks you will know what I mean, if not just trust me) Cooking is easy on the verandah with ample utensils, glasses, plates, pans and bowls No TV, but really who wants tv? Your on holiday Internet is working but for an iPhone user you will be lucky to get the wifi signal from the cottage.. But again, are your gadgets that crazy important... 3G works perfect and for P999 you get 30 days unlimited internet (URL HIDDEN) wifi = no problem, get 3G and be happy at Orchid Park The fridge is great and we had it stocked with drinks, perishables and frozens.. Overall experience at Orchid Park was great We had NO power issues and NO leaking cottage, NO security issues, NO PROBLEMS HERE..... We will be back 100%

Hi. The host made me feel really welcome and the description was accurate. however - there were many issues with the place itself. it is not very clean, and there are many insects, cockroaches, spiders, lizards and snakes crawling in and out of the room. the bath itself is also dirty.

Ответ от Joop:
A tropical garden comes with its own fauna. But "crawling in and out of the room"? An exaggerated justification for the guest's own behavior? Unfortunately this is the only guest who received a negative recommendation from me.

I am a retired lawyer, living in Auckland, New Zealand, and my wife is Filipina; but at the cottage in Cebu, there is always my brother -in-law who is caretaker of Orchid Park. Enjoy your stay in Club Paihia or in Orchid Park. Check out the
