I met Emma in 2010 and we started a wonderful romance. She introduced me to the Philippines soon after. I instantly found a peaceful and relaxed way of life I could connect with. We are fun and a little crazy sometimes and love our trips back to the Philippines. We married in 2013 and spent our honeymoon in the Philippines helping people after Yolanda. We are happy, healthy and enjoy our lives together.
Last year we had the opportunity to buy this little house in Panglao. We spent a lot of time and local help to get it to a place we thought was homely, comfortable and just for us. My Uncle, Emil, helped us buy the house, we couldn't have done it without him. He actually had the chance to visit the house recently and loved it. He passed away soon after.
This house is our home and his legacy. We hope you come and enjoy staying with us. Lorena, our Niece, is a permanent resident there and will look after you throughout. She is an amazing friend and we couldn't ask for a better caretaker. Just ask and she will do her best to help you. It's just a simple house. Best thing is the location; close enough to walk and far enough away to be quiet and peaceful.
We have a lovely house in Philippines and are happy to share it with you!
