We do it Island Style: Island hopping, swimming, skinny dipping (not mandatory), boating, fishing, kayak to the nearby waterfalls, bush walks, Bar-B-Ques on uninhabited islands, are just to name a few of the possible activities. If you ask our assistant Roger, he'll even cut some coconuts so you can drink fresh juice. It’s so refreshing, even better with some Malibu Rum, so bring some with you. Drinking cocktails or cold beer, eating fresh seafood, sleeping, reading, relaxing, and walks along the beach are some other popular pastimes. There are always new treasures being washed up onto the beach such as shells, starfish and driftwood. Explore!
Great for 6 - 8, but it's very romantic for couples. We've even held a wedding here. Gilligans has 3 bedrooms is best suited for up to 6 persons but we can place an extra bed or beds for those who don't mind a few extra people around. The third bedroom is very large so we installed a privacy screen in the middle. We have some photos on our Facebook and Flickr sites which show how the house is set up.
The weekly package rate covers the rental of the home, housekeeping, standard Breakfasts for up to 6 persons, an Island Hopping adventure for up to 6 persons including a Beach Barbecue lunch, ( Not applicable for short term stays under 6 days ). Additional charges apply for Breakfasts and Island Hopping for extra guests over 6 persons. Larger groups should consult with our office for pricing, as we may need another boat to accomomdate a larger party. Email us and we'll send lots more information and some links to our photo pages and youtube link as soon as we receive your enquiry.
Extra beds are available for large parties as is often required for travelling groups or families however this is still a 3 bedroom home designed for 6 to 8 persons. Our back bedroom is very large so we have placed a divider in the room to allow an extra bed and some privacy for groups with more than 6 persons. We are reluctant to accept large groups for Gilligans as we need an extra staff member to assist our caretaker and our boat is licensed by the coastguard for 6 passengers. We've previously had 21 on the boat but it's illegal to do so now for safety reasons....moreless

Port Barton is a small town South of San Vicente on the island of Palawan. Port Barton is 2 and a half hour boat trip from the underground river and 5 hours south of El Nido. The road trip from Puerto Princessa is a pleasant 2 and a half to 3 hour trip through dozens of small villages and beside the magnificent Palawan coastline. The trip goes quickly and it's worth the trip. The last few kilometres of road can be rough at times. Port Barton is in Paradise.
Other Activities: Kayaks and Paddle boats, Boating, Wildlife Viewing
Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: I built our first home in Port Barton as we felt that this area was paradise and had the same potential as Boracay, without the crowds and overdevelopment. We have 2 beachfront homes in Port Barton, both listed in VRBO. We decided to rent the homes to help cover the costs of maintenance and to share the charm and beauty of this area. The feeling we have every time we arrive here is exciting. The homes are simple and it's the freedom and peace we feel here that we enjoy most. Cruising through the islands, swimming on our own beach and enjoying this very special place. I'm sure you'll also enjoy that special feeling.
Why the Owner Chose Port Barton: We recently purchased Gilligans Hideout from a friend that had lived in the home for many years. After 16 years he decided to head to the big smoke to enjoy retirement closer to civilisation. We've added lots of amenities since then including a solar power system, solar hot water system, lights, refrigeration, satelite TV, a new kitchen and many other creature comforts. We love the privacy of this area as there are few neighbours in the area and we rarely see anyone else walk past along the beach. The clear water and magnificent beach are exactly like the photos and the scenery at Gilligans is absolutely stunning. At night, try lying on the beach to watch the stars, comets and high flying planes and shooting stars. Sometimes we see fireflies. Then, go down to the beach and run your hands through the water and watch the water sparkle and glow from bioluminescence caused by microscopic animals in the water. This is a must do!
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: There are few places in the world where you find such a stunning location with such privacy for such a low nightly price. At Gilligans you can choose to do your own meals or we can do it all for you. It's your choice. The views from our home are stunning. You'll forget about work the moment you step of the boat onto the beach.
