A note from Paolyn Houseboats Coron Island
Updated 24/10/21 Safety precautions are provided by the property and are not checked by Tripadvisor for accuracy.


These new Houseboats (we also have a private italo filipino houseboat restaurant) are the first in their kind in Philippines and they are located in a pristine lagoon in the limestone island of Coron: National Park, Marine Reserve and Unesco site (Coron Island is different from Coron town that is located in another island named Busuanga). You can choose one entire private houseboat for yourself with big indoor and outdoor private areas (the Glass Houseboat, the favorite from couple in honey moon and small families, or the Paolyn Houseboat Original) or you can choose just one room. Each room has now its own private internal bathroom with shower (all with hot water except the Mini Houseboat), private dining area, private outdoor relaxing area (with private sun-beds and sun-umbrella) with private ladder to enter the sea. We will pick you up at the Coron/Busuanga airport (or in Coron Town) and bring you to our Houseboats (30 minutes Van plus 15 minutes speedboat). Transfers are complimentary. No pollution, no traffic, no noise. Amazing scenery with breathless landscape with steep cliffs and Karst rock formations made of Permian Limestone of Jurassic origin, it offers superb snorkeling and it is totally quite except birds chirping and splashes of fish. Clean and clear water. It is the only place where to sleep and eat in all Coron Island. Free use of Kayaks, Standup Paddleboards and snorkeling gears. Unlimited drinking water and free WIFI. Totally Eco compatible, they do not discharge any waste in the sea and they are totally off the grid with 24h electricity and fresh water. Each room has multiple tower fans and some rooms have also the air conditioning (optional with a surcharge).

This was the highlight of our trip. Went here on our last day in coron and regret not having to spend more time here. This place is just A-MA-ZING!! Been to a few destinations here in the Philippines but we never thought that this kind of place exists. Ever since a saw a video of This place in youtube Ive already added this to my bucket list. So after a few years, we finally made it here and it was beyond my expectation. The view, the staff and the owners Paolo and April are just the best hosts. Their passion for preserving the island and helping the tribe deserves more recognition. We wished had more time really. You will not regret your stay here. 101% we will be back.

The location is something unique and the Houseboats are the perfect solution to enjoy the best of Coron Island and all its attractions. Do not miss the tour to the lakes by private speedboat. We were alone in the two beautiful freshwater lakes. The restaurant serves delicious food at a more than reasonable price considering the location and logistics. We'll be back! Free use of kayaks and masks makes the stay even more exciting as you can go to Twin Lagoons and some snorkeling spots on your own within minutes

the whole experience is something unique. waking up in the middle of a very clean lagoon with a breathtaking scenery of limestone rocks all around ..... jumping into the water from your private dock and start admiring the corals and colorful fish with masks and fins that are offered for use for free .... taking a kayak excursion (which is also free to use) to nearby Twin Lagoons which is about 600 meters away .... having an Italian coffee for breakfast together with a crepe Nutella with stunning view... drinking an iced cocktail comfortably lying on the sun loungers under the umbrella on your private floating dock .... the exclusivity of this place together with the total respect for nature make your holiday something truly special

hard to go back to reality after being in a place like this. The landscape and nature are something incredible. The houseboats are amazing experience as they allow you to be in close contact with nature without giving up all comforts. The water is very clean and transparent (and full of fish!) also because nothing is discharged into the sea (an exemplary system of eco-sustainability, even if not easy and logistically problematic). The toilets are of the marine type (American) and do not release any odors. Although the room had two anti mosquito systems, we didn't have any mosquito during our stay. The attention of the staff is at the highest level. It is appreciable that most of it is made up of members of the Coron Island tribe who have learned to work right on the Houseboats.
