"My husband and I are from the US, but currently working and living in India. We needed a break and by the photos and reviews we decided this was it. Well, we were not disappointed! Alex & Anna were delightful and coordinated everything we could have wanted..... other than arranging for us to stay another month! ;-) We highly recommend staying at the villa ~ it actually exceeded our expectations. Take some of the day trips they recommend to get a feel for the Island. Such a hospitable country. We hope to be back sooner than later!"Guest: Wish I were back in Bali Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: July 13, 2014View listing
"I'm afraid this place will get overbooked and we won't have a place anymore when we need it. But it would not be fair to keep quiet and not let readers know -- this is just the BEST place to stay in the Fort Bonifacio area! First, the warm welcome - a basket of local fruits to go with the owners's jovial personalities. They make sure you're alright. They call the next morning: "This is Tita Nene, is everything fine?" Everything is great! The condo is very pleasant and clean, and you have privacy when you have guests, as the bed is in the loft. When you open the door, count 20 steps, and jump into the pool. What a life! Then, restaurants all around make it unnecessary for any cooking... the choices are varied. Shopping is also fun, especially with Aura mall a few blocks away. You can walk to all these spots. On departure day, I was too frantic and I left my eyeglasses. Mrs. Manlapas kept them for me, and they are now in the possession of a friend. I cannot sing enough praises for this place, for our wonderful stay, for the guards who do a superb job, and of course ... the delightful Manlapases!"Guest: Serena C.

Japan Travel Tips
Best Time of Year to Visit Japan
Japan has four distinct seasons, each with its own unique beauty. In terms of climate, the best seasons to visit are spring and autumn, when the temperatures are more moderate. Spring enjoys mild, warm days with less humidity and rain than the summer months. In March and April, you can see the famous cherry blossoms that dominate many of Japan’s cultural artworks. Autumn starts around September and the rich tones of the leaves turning are almost as beautiful as the spring blossoms. The weather starts to cool and is more temperate as the temperatures and humidity drop. The only caution is that early in the season the southern regions are prone to typhoons which bring heavy rains and can cause widespread flooding.
Summer is characterized by heavy rains early in the season, and stifling humidity and high temperatures through June and July. Thankfully, most buildings and public transport systems are air-conditioned. Great attractions of the season are the many firework festivals and events that take place. Winter can get icy with snowfalls occurring in the northern and mountainous regions. There are several ski resorts and hot springs that are the main attractions during the colder months. The only drawback is that few buildings have central heating so you need to dress warmly.
Getting to Japan
There are two main international airports in Japan. Narita International is located just outside of Tokyo and the largest airport. It hosts most major international airlines from around the globe. There are daily scheduled flights that connect Tokyo with western cities in the U.S., such as Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle. There are also regular flights from other destinations such as Vancouver, Sydney, Singapore, Dubai and Europe. If traveling from the East Coast in the United States, you can sometimes get a direct connection; however, most flights will have a stopover in another city en route. A second large international airport is located just outside of the commercial city of Osaka. Kansai Airport also hosts a number of international and regional airlines with regularly scheduled flights.
Once in Japan, you can take advantage of the highly efficient public transport system. Most transport links are by rail and Japan boasts some of the most advanced high-speed trains in the world. Aside from the public transport network, there are also several private companies that provide transport networks, and inner-city metro systems. Initially, it can be quite confusing but once you can differentiate between the systems, traveling this way becomes much less complicated.
Things to See and Do near Japan Vacation Houses
Japan is a country of rich contrasts. There are ancient shrines and temples that are set among modern buildings. Traditional gardens provide oases in the cities.
