The ground floor reeked of urine. They had 2 toilets for public use but they stunk and it wafted all though the house. Upstairs was just a collection of crockery and furniture. The displays exhibited no historical significance. Much lace to do about nothing. If you bother to go in that is what you will see, lace adorning the tables, the window frames and the door arches. This is once you dodge the street hawkers that will not accept no for an answer. Not a place that is worth a stop.

I visited this place in 2018 with my significant other and my daughter. The vibe was okay until we stepped into one of the bedroom. I think the house was haunted. It felt like we were not welcome in that room. I couldn’t breathe and felt uneasy, so we left.

An old house with owners suffering from being hoarders, well perhaps an exaggeration but there is no rhyme or reason for the interior decoration, it has just been pieced together randomly.

Every single website on this place says the entrance fee is 50 Php per person, but they charged 100 per person in our group. They insisted "iT wAs ChAnGeD iN SePtEmBeR lolol" but failed to produce any source - even on their own website, that they themselves directed us to - that mentioned this price change. Then they said "Oh bUt iT wAs aNNouNcEd oN FaCeBoOk" which, after checking out their Facebook, also wasn't true, and again they failed to produce proof that the price was raised to 100 per person.

Foreigners beware, these guys are shady as hell and don't even know how to scam properly

The house structure is amazing enough but to add to that the house is jam packed with various collectables no doubt gathered by the family over a considerable period of time. The house is still used by the family, apparently. I think it is worth the admission price.

Esthetically pleasing interior but cramped and overprised. The rudeness of the staff also does not help. Take a look from the outside but keep going to another site.

This trip was actually a back-up plan because the neighboring museum was closed for renovation. We were so glad we did this. Not only the tour guide was knowledgeable enough but he was also a good choreographer/photographer for our group. He took the time to explain the history of the place and not only that, he shared his talent for photography! The pictures were wonderful! Highly recommend it.

I really enjoyed a stroll around this house looking at all of the antiques. The staff is friendly and the furniture was lovely. It really does take you back in time. It is only 50 Pesos, so great value for money too. To note, I've seen some reviews from people complaining about the hot and stuffy interior and people should accept that this is the Philippines and there is no aircon inside the venue, so it is very hot and humid inside, as is to be expected.

A fantastic experience with private tour guide. He knew everything about the house and was also a great photographer taking snaps of us posing in old day poses.
I’m sorry I forgot his name but he is worth it and make sure you repay his great tour at the end.

A must do in Cebu!!

One of the oldest houses in the Philippines at 300 years, this ancenstral home stays strong as it is has been lived in and taken care of through 10 generations. Its original structure of wood, coral stones held together by egg yolks and red clay roof is retained at more than 90%.

Aside from this structure and antique items on display, what's more lovely in this place is its story which the caretaker would be glad to share to you as you walk around. I like best its generosity that you can almost feel how its owners lived as you visit its various areas (including a functional bedroom). There are photos everywhere which give the feeling that you know them.

On the practical end, with an entrance fee of Php50, you can roam freely at your pace, take snaps, even sit on chairs. Just make sure to not break any stuff.

It is situated in the city near other sites like Casa Gorordo, heritage monument, Magellan's Cross and Basilica.
