Authentic Spanish Villa on a bluff overlooking the Sea in Bohol Philippines. Located in the Panglao/Dauis area. Property has 6 air conditioned bed rooms and a huge Living room. 80 steps lead to a private rocky/sandy beach with crystal clear water -- great for snorkeling and swimming and very safe. It's called Phil's Beach. 15 minutes from airport/pier. Amazing views. Incredible value. best for groups of 5 to 30+. Great for vacations, weddings, and corporate retreats. n

"But we wanted to stay some where special by the sea for a change ! for my Birthday" and to entertain friends, for there first visit to Philippines and travel around beautiful Bohol & Panglao Island. We booked Casa Santa Barbara & its mini van for our stay ! after seeing it on Trip Advisor. The owner Brian, who by the way ,was very polite and helpful obviously does not know how his property is being...
