Beachfront Native Cottage
Our cottage is located on the island of Samar, 5,000 miles west of Hawaii, and one of the 7,107 islands of the Philippine Archipelago (and the 3rd largest of the group). We live in a gated community called Paradise Village, on a 1,600 sq. meter piece of land within a haven of coconut trees, and right on the water.
Paradise Village is a community with several foreigners, most having Filipina wives, and who now live either full time, or have made their homes a vacation home and who visit regularly, or have made a home to prepare themselves for future retirement. On the island, we do it, island style!
The Surroundings? Paradise Village sits amongst thousands of coconut trees, a haven of coco's, and our Cottage is beach front, facing north so you can see the island of Luzon across the famous San Bernadino Strait, and on clear days, you can even see the Great Smoking Mt. Mayon Volcano. Since we are open to the Philippine Sea, there is also surf.
