Villa Marguerita in Port Barton, Palawan, Philippines is a simple beachfront holiday home and accommodation.The whole experience at here will be relaxing from the moment you arrive until the moment you leave.

Most of our guests take our recommendation and are met at Puerto Princesa airport or their hotel by our regular and trusted driver who can take them either in a 7 or 12 seater van up the highway to our home in Port Barton. We recommend booking early flights to Palawan, and late flights back to Manila. This allows our guests to add the side trip to visit the famous Underground River either on the way to, or from Port Barton. We can organise our regular driver to meet our guests at any time and place. He is available 24 hours a day. Public transport options direct to Port Barton are available and are cheaper but much less convenient.

We own 2 homes in Port Barton Palawan. Both are listed on Airbnb. Consider also spending time at Gilligans Port Barton. Our reviews can be seen on Tripadvisor. Flights to Puerto Princesa airport should ideally be made for the mornings and flights back to Manila should be made for the afternoon which will allow trips to the Underground River either on the way to Port Barton, and it will avoid early morning trips back to the airport. A 7 or 12 seater private van will cost around $100 to $115usd for the 3 hour trip to Port Barton, and add around $50 if you'd like the driver to take the side trip to visit the famous Underground River on the way to or from Port Barton. Trips to and from El Nido are available by boat or van if required. Expect to pay around Php6000 for a private van, less for public transport. Island hopping around Port Barton is a must, and expect to pay 750pesos ( $15 ) per person with a beach barbecue lunch. There's a minimum charge for small groups. I consider Island hopping as essential to fully enjoy this tropical paradise.
We ask you not to smoke inside the house please but you can smoke like a chimney outside or in the entertainment areas and Cabana.

If high speed internet is important to you, then Palawan may not be a good choice for a vacation.
My Husband and I have owned Villa Marguerita since 1998 and Gilligans since 2006. Some years back we decided to share what we own with others. When we arrive in Port Barton and step out on to the beach at Villa Marguerita and Gilligans, it's such a wonderful feeling. I'm sure you'll enjoy the same excitement as we do.
