From your balcony, you can look out at the nearby mountains from different angles, and from the steps outside the inn, you’ll be treated to views of the stunning Pacific Ocean. The inn also offers yoga classes by their in-house teacher. Even if you’re not much of a yogi, it’s always good to sneak in and enjoy a good stretch, pace out your breathing and attempt some meditative exercises.

This Simple and Homey Guesthouse is situated in a great location in Baler, just two minutes by foot from the surfing hotspot of Sabang Beach. To help you make the most of your time here, the hosts offer surf lessons for novices and also bicycles for rent. Don’t be shy and rent those bikes, so that you can explore gorgeous Baler with ease. Another perk of the guesthouse is its unique menu. While other hotels in the area serve up local dishes and perhaps your usual eggs and toast for breakfast, this guesthouse specializes in Japanese cuisine, with takoyaki and okonomiyaki available daily and ramen on certain days.
