SIMPLE ISLAND LIFE
On our travels around the world we always wanted to stay in a small, simple and stylish house by the natural sandy beach, see the ocean when you wake up in the morning, be able to walk to the beach from your house in your bikinis or pyjamas, stay in a peaceful place out from the tourist area but not too far from the services and surf spots and still pay a reasonable price.
That’s how we wanted our
Surfing Carabao Beach Houses to be.
We are located in Baranagay Malinao, which is part of Municipality of General Luna. Our beach front is about 10 minutes scooter ride away from the busiest part of General Luna, where most of the restaurants, shops and bars are located. Malinao is the perfect location for someone looking for peace and quiet and a place to relax while exploring Siargao.
There are a few local sari-sari shops and food stalls in Malinao village for basic needs. Fish and vegetable market, grocery store and various restaurants are located in General Luna town center. The famous surf spot Cloud 9 in Catagnan is about 15-20 minutes ride away.
Most convenient mode of transport is a rental motorbike / scooter if you are comfortable driving one. You can also use local motorbike taxis (habal habal) and tricycles to get around. There are also a few car rentals available on the island.
At Surfing Carabao we have a well equipped communal kitchen free for our guests to use. We offer basic condiments and coffee and tea free of charge. Our 2-story apartment, Villa Amakan 2, also has a private kitchen.
We are big dog lovers and have 4 very social and sweet dogs roaming free around the property. Sometimes there are other dog visitors from the village too.
We provide wifi but the speed can vary depending on weather conditions. Internet connection is not very developed yet in Siargao, and power outs also happen occasionally.
We have a large network of surf instructors, motorbike rentals, boatmen and tour guides, and we will be happy to help you plan and organise activities for your holiday.
