If you are looking for an affordable Boracay accommodation, this rental home is a good place to stay for a good price.
This home is an 1850’s inspired structure. It is made of concrete, octagon shaped and wheat colored. It is two storeys high with 4 rooms, 3 bathrooms and a balcony.
It is large enough for the whole clan and fully furnished for your comfort and convenience (like you never left home).
Because of its shape, this affordable Boracay accommodation could bring a lot of sunshine inside and it keeps its cool even in summer. The balcony has a view overlooking the ocean and mountains. So you can feel the salty breeze and the view is much better at the top.

Location and Environment
This affordable Boracay accommodation is unbranded (does not carry a brand name). It is situated in a privately owned neighborhood, so there is nothing to worry about being disturbed by any loud or unreasonable noise. 😉
It is not beachfront, but the environment is far more interesting.
From this rental home, you could reach Boracay Station 3 in about 20 minutes on foot. You could exercise without even knowing it and it sure is more fun to explore what lies behind the back of the beach.
You will be surprised to see many more interesting places nearby. It is safe to walk at night too. Just carry a flashlight so you could clearly see your path.
Back when the hilly path was still rocky and rough, this rental home was unsuitable for people who have restricted mobility and certain health conditions.
You could instantly find a tricycle anytime you need one but the path was a bit hard to access. You have to be extra careful when walking along the path and going back to this rental home felt like hiking a mountain.
Fortunately, the path now is made of concrete and you could get to your destination a lot easier. The caretaker could go down the path to fetch you a ride and you could have yourself dropped off right by the gate.
About Your Stay
This rental home can accommodate up to 11 people with a minimum stay of 2 nights. If you are only going to rent some rooms, certain conditions will apply and that would depend on your agreement with the owners. There is no guarantee of getting a discount but who knows, you might be the next lucky guest.
About the Owners
This rental home is well looked-after, always spotlessly clean and good as new, by Australian-based owners. They are frequent travelers just like everyone else and they know the sucky parts of living away from home. They treat their customers really well and even serve them above and beyond expectations.
This rental home is located at Bantud, Manoc Manoc (or Barangay Manoc Manoc, Bantud) in Boracay Island, Malay, Aklan. Getting there is of no trouble because the caretaker will be standing by at the Boracay Jetty Port to fetch you upon your arrival.

This review is a rework and originally titled “Reasonably-Priced and Homely Rental Place in Boracay”. At FlipKey.com, the photos provided for this place were taken during its first few months of launching. So things, especially the bedrooms, would look a bit different from then on.
