Who would have thought that I would become an interior designer? Feeling lang! Or rent apartments to transform into beautiful accommodation for my guests. Maybe a start of my real estate success?
It is true that you’ll do crazy stuff while in pursuit of your dream. So here I am again doing another venture- PALAWAN HOMESTAYS.
My dream is to backpack Europe this year 2016. –> dream fulfilled!
A lot of travelers I met along the way told me that Europe would be expensive. Comparing it with the dirt-cheap escapades possible in the Philippines and the rest of Southeast Asia, I agree. They say, “prepare at least 50Euros a day.” That’s freaking Php2,500, multiply to 3 months makes a whooping Php225,000. Where will I get that? Add the visa fee, insurance, flights and miscellaneous expenses- Maybe around Php300,000. So instead of waiting until I sell 300 pieces of hammocks via my other business Hammock Republic, I thought about this new venture.
In pursuit of my dream, me and some friends is starting up a homestay venture here in Puerto Princesa City. We rented 2 apartments in the middle of the city where travelers can stay and relax after a tiring day of island hopping and tours.
The problem we want to solve is: Why stay in an expensive hotel or pension house if you can have your own house?
We have 2 houses that can accommodate 5-6 persons at a max each.
Apartment 1: Lifehouse (photos when you click the link)
Apartment 2: Orange house (photos when you click the link)
Healthy breakfast upon request: Php75 each Laundry service and home service massage is available upon request too. We can give special discount for weekly and monthly rentals.
2 Bedrooms (one big with Air-conditioning system, one small small)
1 toilet and bath, cold shower. Super clean!
Full kitchen, living and dining areas.
We don’t have internet because we want you and your friends to talk about your experiences and not be focused on posting #selfie on Facebook.
And we don’t have hot shower- it’s hot in Palawan anyway.
And we don’t have Cable TV, I am just no fan of TV.
We are located at HappyArt Apartelle, Wescom Road, Bgry. San Pedro. 150meters from the main highway. Coming from the airport turn right at AA Plaza Hotel (if coming from Sabang/El Nido turn left at Mercury Drugstore) to Wescom Road. Look for the white building, Happyart Apartelle, Palawan Homestays is at the second floor of it, doors #5 and #6.
Tricycle outside the airport would cost around Php50 (for 2-3pax) straight to our homestay. Tour vans can park on our big parking lot in front of our building.
10-15 minutes away from the airport (3kms)
5 minutes away from the old public market by tricycle, 10-min walk (1km)
5 minutes away from Robinsons Mall by tricycle/jeepney, 10-15min walk (1km)
5-minute walk to Pasalubong Center (500meters)
