I'm Haydee from the Island Garden City of Samal, Davao Del Norte Philippines. I love nature, art and travel. I love learning from a different culture and enjoys listening from other peoples experiences and expertise.
Living here in the island is what I really enjoy much. I have my own small paradise and everything is simple and natural.
Being a new member or host of Airbnb is a new learning and exciting experience for me. I'm gaining new friends. Trust and respect from my guests. I would always be willing to make my guest feel at home and comfortable during their stay and will guide them and give them information about the most beautiful and unique places to visit around Samal Island and Davao City.
It's more fun in the PHILIPPINES.
Welcome and Mabuhay!
