Response from Alex & Helen:
This fellow,Frank Kunaht, is not a normal guest, water and electricity was available at all times, he would not allow the housekeeper in to clean or check the house ,she wondered why ,,after 7 days of all the guests being locked in the house,we got the police and social services to check, they took him away from the house for being abusive and the filipinas there, 11 of them ,i personally had to pay 20000 to get them home to naga city, he was very rude and upsettling the village people, ie ,just walking inside the houses,and being german, his understanding was that as he had paid for renting the house he could then do as he wished, he also damaged some cupboards and was thinking he could be a boss to the locals,we returned his money and he was not allowed by the police to return to the island house ,his belongings were taken to tabaco pier for him, he had not any respect for the house or the housekeeper ,, ,do not advise any airbnb hosts to allow him to reside in there place. good luck

Great relaxing place. Boat is available and Jojo the boatman is very helpful to accommodate you anywhere you like to go. The caretaker lady “Charm” is great and cooked for all 9 of us. Highly recommended this place for anyone wanting a place to relax. Beautiful surroundings.

The place was as advertised and a very nice place to stay at. We where well taken care of and enjoyed our stay immensely. A really relaxing place which we'd really love to return to.
