Beach cottage perfect for large families, small groups. Has cooking facilities and/or we can prepare. Gentle waves, ocean at your feet. Rustic interior décor with native materials. Access by ~125 steps, great exercise, not for the weak of heart! Parking at top. Great Mayon views from the beach cottage.

The space
This beach house, Villa Serena, is an annex of Mirisbiris Garden and Nature Center. 2 large bedrooms (sharing 1 indoor bathroom with hot shower), spacious living/dining room, and kitchen. A bucket flush toilet and unheated shower are out back. Nice small garden, a teaser for what's a short walk up the road at Mirisbiris.

Each of the two bedrooms has a double bed. In the common area, there are 4 single beds (as bunks), and folding floor mattresses for a few more. Please note P400/person charge for each extra over 8 persons. We recommend maximum of 12 persons.

One of the obvious attractions here is swimming. It's relatively safe, but there is no lifeguard.

Where you’ll be

Santo Domingo, Bicol, Philippines

Salvacion is a farming and fishing village. Villa Serena, with the ocean as a swimming pool (gentle enough even for kids), is ideal for guests who want to take care of themselves. It's more like a home away from home than like a full-service resort. It's also very private, but those who want to interact are welcome to drop by our house at the top of the stairs.

We're a retired couple. Well, semi-retired. Chris still studies volcanoes and Glenda still helps with village health matters. But we're increasing the amount of time we spend developing Mirisbiris as an oasis of "Wow!" Proceeds from Mirisbiris support students from Salvacion through college. More details available at our Mirisbiris Garden website. Both of us are lifelong learners, and we enjoy helping others to learn, too!

During your stay

Our home (blue roof) is at the top of the stairs, and we're around most of the time. If you prefer privacy, we'll respect that; if you prefer to interact, great. Breakfast (for up to 8) is included in the price, and can be delivered to the beach house or you can join us for breakfast in our home. You can prepare other meals yourself, or you can share in our meals at modest extra cost. Yet another alternative is to eat lunch and/or dinner in the coffee shop/ restaurant at Mirisbiris -- we'll put a copy of the menu in Villa Serena -- but please give us as much advance notice as you can.
