Looking for a unique Boracay experience? Tucked away on the southern part of Boracay is Beth Shalom Academy, a locally run private school. Our guest house is open to extra special people who are looking for a different local experience.
You can't get a place as unique as this: your own guest house in the middle of what was recently awarded as "Malay's Most Beautiful Pre-School".
Our 1-bedroom guest house can fit up to 4 guests (2 inside air conditioned bedroom, 2 at the fan-only living room sofa bed & bench). Guests can entertain visitors on the living room area. However, we would like to request guests to follow the House Rules.
There's a cooking and dining area. We can supply a butane stove for free if you want to cook simple meals. We can also share our fridge space if you need to store perishables. Commercially filtered water will be supplied and replenished regularly.
We try to make our home green and have a number of trees and shrubs. At the same time we keep 3 dogs and a few birds.
Guests will have access to the guest house, the big garden, the kitchen shed, our dining tent.
However, for security and child-safety reasons, we would like to request that guests only enter class areas with the permission of the host and/or teachers.
If astronomy is your interest, we can invite you to spend time with us on our roof deck and star gaze with our newly acquired telescope.
Общение с гостями
We live onsite and will always be ready to assist you if you need anything. We are simple folks who have hosted dozens of international guests through the years and would love to hear guests stories. We can share our recommendations on things to do, eat and visit here on the island... as well as tips on how not to get ripped off.
Guests will have their own keys to the gate and the house so access will not be an issue.
If you're interested in doing activities on the mainland (Tibiao Kayaking, "kawa" spa, etc), we can also arrange these for you, for a very minimal fee.
Другие важные подробности
- We are located about 100meters from the main road up on a local community area in Bantud Hill. Visitors who have mobility issues might have problems so please take note before you book.
- The nearest beach (station 3 on White Beach) is about 2km from the property
- This is an actively run elementary school and so we will have children and parents from 7:30am-4:30pm from June (start of the local school year) to April. However, the neighborhood is fairly quiet after that.
- We do not use chemical fumigation regularly so if you feel that you might be sensitive to mosquitoes, please bring your own anti-mosquito lotions.
The property is a no-smoking and no-alcohol zone.
While we encourage interaction with the students of the school, guests may only have supervised interaction with the students during free periods.
Please conserve power and water.
Sandy and wet footwear should be left on the porch.
After decades of church work, my wife and I retired in Boracay Island on our own property in Bantud Hill. As lovers of nature, we decided to keep most of the original trees and shrubbery, as we noticed that they attracted various wildlife, including owls, bats, orioles, starlings and other native species.
As lifelong teachers, my wife and I decided to open our lives to the children of the local and expat population through Beth Shalom Academy.
We have 6 children (all boys) and 6 grandchildren who live in different cities around the world.
Aside from our students, we also raise 3 dogs and more than a dozen birds.
Through the years we have played host to dozens, even hundreds, of guests from different cultures, sharing our simple means with them. In turn they shared their stories and time with us. We are not professional hosts but rather think of airbnb as a way for us to extend our hospitality further.
If ever you decide to stay in our guest house, consider bringing stories that you can share with us, and maybe our students, too.
