This is a great place for family. Location is right in front of white island. The place already includes refrigerator, kitchen, and cooking utensils. The property owner is the owner of Check Point restaurant. So I recommend you go to the place if you are checking in. Nobody will receive you if you go to the cottage directly. The owner is very nice and accommodating. His Staffs are also very helpful.
Pros: Right on the beach (black sand) Away from everything (if you are looking for privacy) Cons: We are a couple traveling through the Philippines with 18 months old baby. When we saw the place i wanted to take my family elsewhere ASAP. Why? The place is run down. Photos look much better than it actually is. Especially bathroom. Outside kitchen deserves mentioning as well. It's very very basic. And it's outside. Moreover-located right on the main road on the side of the beach. Has huge mango tree behind it as well. So if you are not waken up by a truck passing by you surely will be by falling mangos. The metal roof seem not to have any insulation nor soundproofing. Also it is single standing cottage so you will be alone. Some people might like it though. We moved out on the same day to much better place. We have been in five different locations in the Phils and did experienced much better accommodation sometimes for lower price. Anyway we thought that Camiguin will have something special. Apart from Hot springs there is nothing to do! Even the springs were not running 100% because of the climate change. Also other people mentioned Check point restaurant that owner also ownes- we went there for lunch and found chicken in the soup so tough that it must have been frozen for a long time. Another disappointment... Owner should take great pride in the accommodation that he ownes and make it feel like home to any traveller. Good luck with your travels.
best for group or a family retreat”
the white island is just right across from the cottage.. beautiful sunrise and sunset view. the bathroom needs a serious renovation though..

Great location, good restaurant nearby, needs maintenance, certainly the bathroom ”
Great and cheap location at sea... Alone and peaceful... The place needs a good maintenance, certainly the bathroom ...
We had excellent time. Our family (2 adults, 2 children) really enjoyed it. Location at the sandy beach, quiet, confortable, great wooden porch. Walking distance - 10 min (you can walk on the beach passing friendly local fisherman or the street) to White island, to fresh fruit and vegetables market, and of course to Check point food (shop, backery and excellent restaurant (the best food on Camiguin!!!)). The host Roy helped us with everything (information, arranging transport for our trips, ...). Thank you Roy.

Excelent..a good time with our family...the cottage is near the beach and the view is fantastic....if you want a peaceful place near the beach, this is the place.highly recommend.
Felt like home and hard to leave. ”
Roy, the owner, is a fantastic host and knows the meaning of hospitality. Falling asleep listening to the waves and breakfast on he beach was fantastic. The caretaker was kind enough to rent us his bike at a very fair price. We spent a whole day at Ardent springs which was great. Be sure to go to the sunken cemetery for the sunset. We had some meals next door at Golden Sunset Beach Club which we would also recommend. If you want fresh fruits and veggies be sure to stock up in Mambajao because there is nothing near the cabin.
