6/5 stars for our stay! Even we had a hard time entering tali and waited for almost an hour because they didn't informed us ahead of time that we need the gate pass to be printed out. We loved the place so much, the ambiance, interiors, complete utensils, etc..worth the wait and worth the price plus the caretaker kuya james was very accommodating and hands on. He made sure everything is okay. Take note, bathroom needs renovation for a better and more comfortable stay. Overall, our stay was indeed memorable and satisfied. We will definitely book our stay again soon!

The house is VERY spacious. Perfect for families and groups of friends. My friends and I surely enjoyed the place and the small pool especially since the beach wasn't that great (it was raining for days before we arrived). We were able to cook and lounge around the house which was nice. The house is old but renovated. There are areas though that could definitely be improved. I feel like they scrimped on the renovation and furnitures Juan's assistant was very patient with all of my questions and the care taker was very helpful and he even accompanied us to the beach. We experienced some problem when entering Tali subdivision. There was a new policy that was implemented just that week - the owner should have sent the authorization letter / gate pass to the Tali Beach office in Makati City and then a formal authorization from the office will be sent to the guard house. Without the official authorization they wont let visitors in. They said the owner was informed but he probably didn't relay the information to his staff who we were in touch with in airbnb. Anyway, it eventually got sorted out but we had to wait for about 20mins outside the village. For large groups, they can provide as much as 12 beds / mattresses but note that beyond 9 pax you'd have to pay for the extra persons. And beware the fee is quite expensive. All in all, we liked our stay here and would consider staying again. It's one of the more affordable options in Tali but there are also better / newer houses in other nearby villages.

Cons: The shower in the 2nd floor bathroom was not working. There are 2 bathrooms downstairs although 1 bathroom was inside the room. Experienced brownout since there was a storm during our stay. No generator. The windows in the bathroom facing the caretaker's house had a lot of gaps. Some of the girls hesitated to use that. There was only 1 fan provided. It was windy so we didn't mind. However, it could be a different case during summer. The door on one of the rooms in the 2nd floor cannot be closed. There was a storm during our stay so some of us were frightened since the door was opening and closing by itself. Pros: Vacation house was spacious and well-ventilated ("maaliwalas"). Dipping pool was a great place to hangout at night. Our chef was thrilled with the kitchen wares that were provided (as well as the griller). House has complete dinner wares and kitchen wares (except rice cooker). Best part was James (caretaker). Helped us out (compared to other Tali Beach house rentals) during our whole stay. He bought rice and ice for us. Washed the dishes for us. And even went with us to guide us where the beaches were. Please extend our thanks to James.

We had so much fun at the beach house being a group of 9 plus one child. It was bigger than i expected. The common areas were very open and breezy but the rooms were still spacious and had good airconditioning. There were three full bathrooms which is good for a big group. However they are old and run down. At night the mosquitoes are a lot and annoying. Providing an insect repellent vaporiser or humidifier will be better. Also so many flies come out whenever we bring out food so candles or fly catcher machines can hopefully be provided as well. More electric fans are needed as well. The beach was a short walk away on an inclined cemented path. The village was very safe and quiet.
