We had a group of around 20 people and everyone had an amazing time! the grounds were big enough for games in and out of the pool. Haydee is a great host and very accommodating. The house is very big and perfect for team building. I would highly recommend Haydee's house to anyone looking for a spacious area for large groups. 10/10 As a foreigner in the Philippines, I have had challenges with locals lacking communication skills, punctuality, honesty, and no real sense of urgency. But, Haydee is an exception to these problems. Her communication is by far the best I have come across, quick reply's, honest answers, and went the extra mile to accommodate us for a comfortable stay. She is a delight to work with and I am looking forward to coming back for future team building.

It was a pleasure to host Brandon, his lovely wife and the whole team. Brandon is a professional and well organized. Highly recommended to other hosts. They even bought some of my puppies and gave it as a birthday gift to their employee. I'm happy that my puppies had their new home now. Looking forward on hosting them again on their next team building. Thank you Brandon for the nice and kind words & good review from you. I really appreciate it. Maraming maraming salamat po!

The photos look as what is shown on the website. The house is huge enough to fit my large family. Haydee was a very great host. The only issue was the fact that when it rains, it pours. There are a few leaks in the house. My son was in the shower when the water was out. But our nice host Haydee was in the immediate rescue. Overall, the house issues were offset with the kind assistance and the hospitality of the host. Thanks Haydee.

Thank you Maam Annabelle for choosing our home. There was a bad weather or typhoon during your stay and had some issue with the leaks. But we have fixed already. It was a great experience hosting you and your entire wonderful family. God Bless and Thank you once again.

Haydee replies fast and is ready to answer queries. We arrived late in the evening due to flight delays and had a few issues locating the place because the place is not that near the main road, the tricycle guide at that time was not available, cellphone signal was bad and it was already dark. We were only able to locate it when we saw Haydee after a few minutes riding a motorcycle looking for us. Place was spacious and ideal for big family like ours. Haydee offered for our grandmother to use the stairway inside the house but it was too steep for her. We decided to avail the room at the ground floor. The kids were able to use the swimming pool and karaoke. The tv cable is working perfectly but wifi connection is really slow. This is good for family to have more interaction but if you need wifi badly, you might want to take this into consideration. Towels are provided but bring your own toiletries, detergent and dishwashing soap as this will not be provided.

Response from Haydee:
It is not true that we have not provided toiletries and dishwashing soap. Please be noted that before they arrived, it was all set and ready at each bathroom for one or two days usage and same with the dishwashing liquid at the kitchen. We normally add and replace it with a new ones on the next days together with new towels. But i have seen them having their own toiletries - reason why i did not add it anymore. Thank you for choosing our home. Maraming salamat po.

Haydee was a great host and very attentive to ensure we had a pleasant stay. Or group consisted of 15, and there was a great amount of space to accommodate everyone plus more if needed. Our favorite part was the karaoke and access to the refreshing pool. This home was a good jump-off point to be able to further explore the island. As it is a private home on the island in a bit of a secluded area, don't expect wifi signal to be strong. Overall, we very much enjoyed the space.

Haydee is very nice and patient. she showed us some beatiful tourist sites in Samal island in person. She arranged back and force van from Babak wharf and our day tour at a reasonable price. I think that the most interesting part in Samal island is picking up coconuts from trees in her yard. We tried the most delicious coconuts and filled ourselves with them. The swimming pool with small fountain and slide is clean and comfortable. We cooked by ourselves in the kitchen on the second floor just like in our own home. There are some ropes on the balcony of the second floor so that you can hang the clothes very conveniently. This place is safe and peaceful. You may find many ants , lizard or other small insects here. If you are from a big city, you may feel a bit upset. But in Davao city, you also often see them. Her house is not very near the beach. It may take you about 20 minutes to go to the beach by tricycles.

Response from Haydee:
Thank you for the wonderful review and kind words. I really appreciate it and happy to know that you enjoyed your stay. The whole family members are very kind. They are curious in many things and of course loved to eat more and more coconuts which they don't have in their country. Although they were a little upset because they find ants, lizard and small insects, but it is to be considered because they were at the tropical place/country. You will find a greater diversity of insects in the tropics like the Philippines, including some giant insects, but also some extremely tiny ones. But there are also some insect species and even larger in colder climates like their country (CHINA). There are many factors that affect insect size in the tropics because we have higher temperatures, more food, longer/constant growing seasons, etc., all of which affect insect growth. Again, thank you for choosing our home and for your kindness.. Haydee

Its my first time to booked thru airbnb service and it was good experience for me and for my entire family. Haydee has been a very good host and assisted us all through out our 3D2N stay. Haydee's home is very convenient esp if you have a big family and you're travelling/staying with so many kids. Kids love pool which one of the amenities in the house. We also loved that the rooms are spacious to fit us all in. TY for hosting us on our stay!

Island Garden City of Samal, PhilippinesJoined in April 2014
Haydee User Profile

Hi there!

I'm Haydee and lives here in the Island Garden City of Samal , Davao Del Norte Philippines. I love nature, arts and travel. I love learning from different culture and enjoys listening from other peoples experiences and experties.

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 informations 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!

Here are the Informations that would help you about SAMAL ISLAND.

The Island Garden City of Samal is a group of island in the heart of Davao Gulf, here in the Philippines. Physically unattached to mainland Mindanao, the island is 900 meters east of Davao City and 10 kilometers west of Compostela Valley Province. It has a stretch of over 116 kilometers of continuous coastline and with a total land area of 30,130 hectares.

The island is endowed with an extensive mountain range at the eastern coast, a number of isolated hills and an uneven distribution of lowlands. The city enjoys a mild pleasant climate with no pronounced dry or wet season, and is typhoon free. It takes only 10-15 minutes ride from Davao City via motorboat or ferry boat.

There are seven (7) islets that surround the island. The highest slope in the island ranges from 30-65% with an area of 215 hectares. The climate type is Zone IV, which is characterized by rainfall more or less distributed evenly throughout the year. Its soil classification known as Bolinao Clay is suited for corn and coconut and mango production.

In addition to that, Springs can be found in different barangays and there are also unknown creeks in the whole island and one (1) river that traverse within the city. The entire island including Talikud and the rest of the islets has 31 coastal barangays. Kaputian District has the greater number of coastal barangays with 12 barangays out of its 15 barangays.

For International Visitors, you can fly direct to Davao City via Philippine Airlines, Cebu Pacific Airlines or SilkAir from Singapore.

Or if you're entering the Philippines via the capital city of Manila, take a domestic flight to Davao City. The domestic flight to Davao City from Manila is serviced by four(4) major airlines with a combined frequency of fourteen(14) flights daily. More flights are expected as another airline is slated to open its domestic route in Davao City.

In going to the Island from Davao City, there are three established entry points:

1) - Sta Ana Wharf (near Magsaysay Park, downtown area) where motorboats are available to ferry passengers directly to Kaputian anTalikud Island.

2)- Sasa, Km. 11 wharf where motorboats are available to ferry passengers direct to Babak wharf.

3) - Sasa, Km. 11 Ferryboat Landing where passengers will be riding the Island City Express Bus from R. Castillo and Cabaguio St. and be
transported by a ferryboat to the Brgy. Caliclic, Babak District.

However, the country is promoting tourism as one of the major socio-economic activities. The government encourages foreign investors as well as Filipinos to travel and go around the Philippine Islands to appreciate its natural beauty, heritage and culture.

Meanwhile, Among the scenic natural beauties in the country, the Island Garden City of Samal was chosen as one of the tourist destinations because of its inimitable beauty and unspoiling natural attraction such as white sand beaches, crystal waters, caves and others.

The city government is tasked to preserve the potential spots in the island without impairing its natural resources.

So if you wanted to go around the island by water and view its scenic beauty, island tour is offered to tourists.

Thank you!
