Villa Marmarine : Recommended Siquijor Accommodation

Villa Marmarine was something special. I don’t normally mention the accommodation I stay with, since with my budget  it’s usually nothing very exciting to write home about.

The few days I stayed with them were great in every possible sense.

The Japanese owners made sure that I feel welcome and satisfied.

 

Each morning, I woke up with sunrise to face this beautiful piece of heaven…

And the rooms are just gigantic and well-equipped, for an unbelievably affordable price (~30US$/night)… not to mention they upgraded me to a family villa with two floors, a full-blown kitchen and two double beds. I could have brought a whole tribe into this cabin.
