We look forward to meeting new people regularly and will be there to assist you with your needs. If we happen to be unavailable due to unforeseen circumstances, we will make sure to have a representative at the place to handle your inquiries and requests.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD

The place is located in Sitio Biasong in Brgy. Bonbon after Busay in Cebu City. This is up in the mountains where the flower growers and vegetable farmers are. The place was originally a Mango farm so expect to see Mango trees and if lucky, swarms of fireflies in the trees. The air is usually very cool due to the mountain breeze. Right beside the lot runs the Mananga River which is also the flowing water source for our swimming pool. Guests find that trekking up the river can be quite adventurous but manageable at the same time. If you trek far enough, there is a mini waterfall up the river.
