A RESEMBLANCE OF FILIPINO HOMES

Old building, ancient stuffs, and a totally different atmosphere!
Aug 2019
The house was very “eye catching” so that you can easily spotted its building from the main street as you have to park your vehicle in another side of the street, since the main street was a bit narrow. There were so many Philippines’ flags and decorations over the house. There were also many signs and information boards in front of the House. There's a tour guide who'll tell the stories about the house comprehensively and very detailed. The house has two floors, while on first floor was all the main rooms, like family room, dining room, kitchen, and storage for all the stuffs. On the second floor, you will just find the bedrooms, main bedroom and other functional rooms. There's a beautiful mini garden outside the house, located at the backside of the house. Worth to visit, so far... especially for those ancient geeks and historical things' nerds.

Old house to learn a little bit of history
Nov 2019
If you want to understand the history of this house, make sure to bring a tourist guide or make your own research. Very interesting place full with antique furniture.

Rather too theme park interior but interesting architecture
Feb 2020
Think Haw Par Villa rather than National Trust . Costumed room guides and overly packed spaces gave a less than convincing experience of colonial Cebu life. Might keep youngsters more engaged but rather oversold as a city highlite

Since you are in the metropolis already don’t forget to visit this ancestral house. It has an entrance fee which isn’t costly and you will be amazed to look around. Also, just beside the house is a small store you can buy souvenirs that isn’t pricey.

MUST VISIT!
Jan 2020
One of the gems of Cebu. Allot 1 to 2.5 hours (1 hour - shortened version) and ask for a Guide. You will learn valuable information and will have lots of laughs, especially with Ariel. Make sure to tip the guide. A 500 or more tip for Guide Ariel is well-deserved.

Animal cruelty!! Don't support this!!!
Jan 2020 • Friends
There are animals (e.g. monkey & birds and other ones) chained and treated badly. They look so sad and it is heartbreaking to watch them being there. We regret that we paid entrance fees and therefore supported this as we were not aware of this. The house itself is not too bad but there is really no need for the animals there! Please stop it

Horrible experience
Jan 2020 • Friends
The house is beautiful but the receptionist is so rude. We paid 50 pesos eac but didnt get a tour guide at all. He jusy have us a 5-min briefing. I guess we look young so he thinks we dont have money. He just didnt tour us around while he led others upstairs and stuff. Horrible staffs!!! Bad attitude!!!
