Your island home in Siargao

KUBO is a no-frills homestay situated in a quiet neighborhood close to Cloud 9. Kubo has only 2 units in the property to maintain a more private space between guests at the same time providing a communal kitchen and dining. A modern bungalow and a native tower room each with their own detached toilet and bath with an outdoor shower.

Experience living the island life. Located just minutes away from Cloud 9 but distant from the crowds. It's the ideal place to relax, surf and enjoy.

The Rooms

Our rooms are a product of our love for the island and the lifestyle that we want our guests to experience - a home away from home and a laid back lifestyle. Each room is located at each end of the property to give its own personal space for privacy but at the same time a space to engage with fellow guests.

* Minimum of 2 nights stay

As Guests

Live like a local, enjoy the simple things and come here with no expectations. We wanted to share our home with friends and strangers that eventually become friends.

Don't hesitate to ask for assistance, be respectful to the local community and don't complain about the little things.

We want you to experience Siargao on your own. Once you step in we expect you to be independent travellers and take care of the place as your own.

House Rules

Please keep our island home clean at all times especially the kitchen. Learn to be conscious about the use of plastic.

Peace and quiet must be observed. Please keep your noise down to a minimum. Maintain quietness especially during the evening.

You will be held responsible for any loss or damage to the property caused by you, your guests or any person for whom you are responsible.

Always be humble. There is no room for entitlement.

You are responsible in safe-keeping your valuables and belongings.

Cancellation Policy

Due to our limited availability, we observe strict rules on cancellation. For a 50% refund of accommodation fees, cancellation must be made seven full days prior to listing’s local check in time on the day of check in, otherwise no refund.

Getting there

Our place is located in Saging-saging, Catangnan. There is no proper shortcut from the main Tourism road to the old back road going to our place. You either have to take the old road from the town proper (corner Kambal Pandesal bakery) or go around to Cloud 9. However, there is a small short cut near Bake / Mama's Grill going to the old road. This place can get a bit flooded during rainy season.

Some helpful tips

  • Bring extra cash. ATM access is limited in General Luna.
  • Surf lessons and island hopping can be arranged upon arrival.
  • Rent a scooter or motorbike to get around faster.
  • Habal-habal fare is usually P20 around General Luna
  • Mosquitos are always present. It helps to carry around a mosquito repellant.

Surfing for beginners

Waves in Siargao could prove difficult for beginners. We highly advise people who have just started surfing to always get a certified instructor. This is to ensure your safety and the safety of your fellow surfers.

Plastic Battle

Help us take care of this island.

As part of our own efforts to minimize the impact of single-use plastics we provide guests with these reusable water containers during their stay with us. There are free water refill stations through out General Luna.

You can bring it while eating out, going island hopping or simply just taking a walk, then leave it clean after for the next guests. This is our own way of minimizing the use of disposable plastics.

Hi there! We are Harvey and Kai, your hosts! Two introverts working together to strive for a simple life in the island. We wanted to have a place that epitomizes a home of peace and quietness where we can just sit back, relax and live a little slow enjoying the sun and surf.
