Your home in the island

KUBO is a no-frills homestay. Your own “bahay kubo”, a native bungalow and a separate tower room. All units have their own detached toilet and bath with an outdoor shower. Inclusive of drinking water and a dedicated communal dining area and kitchen.

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.

As Guests

Learn to live like a local. Come here with no expectations. We wanted to share our home with friends and strangers that eventually become friends, sharing moments with people from different parts of the world.

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 but we'll be happy to assist you in any way we can so you can get the most out of your trip. Once you step in you are mostly on your own, our caretakers will visit once in a while. We expect you take care of our home as your own.

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.
