Surfing Carabao beach houses
Former travel agent Kaisa Kasemets sure knows her market. The beachside villas with stunning views of the Pacific are spacious enough for big groups, and so comfortable you might be tempted to sit out the surf and lounge on the beach all day.
Island Pacific Villas
Choose from three native-inspired modern villas, each with its own well-equipped kitchen. Tempting hammocks are all over the property, as are cute and friendly resident canines who add extra charm to this cozy island spot.
Bayud Boutique Resort
You’ll get a lot of privacy at any of Bayud’s 11 chic villas, but the photogenic graffiti walls might make it hard not to broadcast your stay on Instagram. The resort has its own swimming pool, a beach front and a restaurant called Surfing Pig that offers hearty servings of Filipino dishes.
