About Caleb Freed
Owned by Joshua and Lindie Freed from and Bothell, Washington, and run by me, Caleb Freed, an employee of Joshua. It was built by Dennis and Ellen Freed from Big Timber, Montana. We rent Sunrise House to fund the operation costs so that we can continue to provide assistance to the people of Bohol through Montana on a Mission. Check it out at 'montanaonamission.org' or on FaceBook - 'montana on a mission'. Our goal is to provide a family friendly environment, safe and filled with available excursions and activities at Sunrise House.
Caleb Freed purchased this Estate in 1997
Why Caleb Freed chose Loay
Denny and Ellen searched for over a year to find the perfect location with sweeping views of the hills overlooking Loboc River and the Bohol Sea. We have numerous coconut, mango, cocao, papaya, lemonsita, avocado trees and banana plants. We enjoy cool nights, gentle breezes and escape from the noise and hustle of the city, and the Sunrise House is the perfect place to do just that! Out of all my travels, I have never been to a place where the people there will bend over backwards just to make you feel at home, even if you have never met them before. It is such a hospitable land and I have never even had so much as a sour look from anyone in 20 years. Perfect for vacation and family time.

I and my wife had a wonderful holidays at the Sunrise house.
We enjyoyed the panoramic river and sea view from the villa and swimming in the everyday cleaned up pool and we appreciated the great help by Laarni Hilot site manager arranging everything like a snorkeling tour to Pamilacan island, the Countryside tour including the Chocolate hills, Tasha monkey park, butterflies park, the hunging bridge.
Also we have many many thanks to Maria Corazon housekeeper completely cleaned up the room and cooked the excellent dinner and to very kind drivers of Presco, Sonny and Larry.
We hope to visit here soon, so I have to work hard to get money for the next.
Thank you very much.
Thank you so much Shunsuke!

What a gem
We had an amazing time at Sunrise House and so glad we took the chance to stay here. Yes, it is on top of a mountain and seemingly in the middle of nowhere. But if you are for some reason in need of a large house in Bohol, this is the one.
We were 7 adults 4 children and stayed 3 nights. The house is very memorable but I'd say what made our stay is the amazing staff that helped with literally every aspect of our stay. Thank you, Laarni!! What a treat to have home cooked meals every day while on vacation. Flexibility with the booking itself was also great.
Keep in mind you will still encounter elements in the middle of a jungle - there are bugs, lizards, humidity, sensitive plumbing, unpaved roads, etc. While they are more than relaxed to have kids around, note the house itself is filled with marble floors and glass walls.
We will be talking about our experience at Sunrise House for a long time. It was definitely the highlight of our travels.
Thank you for your kind review!

Schöne und ruhige Villa nahe dem Loboc River
Wir hatten eine sehr schöne Zeit im Sunrise House. Das Haus ist ziemlich abgelegen, ca. 40-45min. mit dem Motorrad entfernt von Tagbilaran. Dafür ist es sehr ruhig und verfügt über eine geniale Aussicht! Es solle auf normale Roller verzichtet werden, da der Weg zum Haus sehr steinig ist und die Pneu damit Probleme haben. Mit einem Auto oder einem Motocross Big Bike ist es jedoch kein Problem!
Die Onsite-Managerin Laarni war extrem hilfsbereit und freundlich. Ein herzliches Dankeschön an dieser Stelle! Sie hat uns vollumfänglich in allen Belangen unterstützt. Das ist nicht selbstverständlich und wir wissen das ausserordentlich zu schätzen.
Das Haus verfügt über 3 Schlafzimmer. Der Zustand ist gut - jedoch ein bisschen in die Jahre gekommen. Leider funktionierte die Spülmaschine nicht.
Der Pool wurde täglich gereinigt und war einwandfrei.
Vielen Dank für die Gastfreundschaft und die tolle Zeit!
Thank you for your kind review, Yannick!

The sunrise house was perfect for our family of 10. Ms Laarni was very accommodating to all our needs. The cook Ms Marietta provided us with delicious Filipino cuisine. They have spoiled us during our stay. I would definitely recommend this place. We didn’t want to leave. Thank you to the wonderful staff for the great experience!!!
Thank you for your kind words, Ria :)
We are glad you enjoyed your stay!
Absolutely the best!
This is the most amazing place. We loved every minute of our visit. The view is breathtaking and everything is done to perfection. The staff was very kind and professional. We enjoyed very much meeting the owners, and helping out with the feeding program that they support at the local school. The pool was awesome and very clean. The kitchen was modern, and we liked the ability to cook our meals there. The beds were very soft which was a very welcomed changed from the other places we stayed at in the Philippines. I could go on and on, but I will just say that we highly recommend this place. The house is top notch and the people are top notch also. You will not regret staying here.
Great location, excellent views, amazing architecture and superbly maintained.
We (four adults and three children) stayed here for a week the beginning of April. The location is less than an hour in the included van transport from the ferry dock, between the seaside town of Loay and the river town of Loboc. The very unusual and high end house is in a rural area, though hardly remote. A fifteen minute walk will take you to a village on the banks of the Loboc River; if you cross the hanging pedestrian bridge at the end of the road you can eat at the very good restaurant at the Loboc River Resort. We brought our own food and cooked it in a very well equipped kitchen. A housekeeper came every day and the pool was kept immaculately clean. Laarni, the manager, lives next door and was always cheerful and helpful. We didn't go touring, having been to Bohol several times before, but rather stayed at the house and enjoyed the views, the setting and the pool. I highly recommend this rental. And the WiFi connection was excellent as well.
Sunrise House is a family friendly estate. Attractions include The Loboc River Cruise, Chocolate Hills, Tarsier Monkeys, Canyon Zip Line, Panglao Island Beach Resorts, Scuba Diving, Snorkeling, Jet Skiing, Whale/Dolphin Watching, Restaurants, historic churches, Spelunking caves and numerous beaches.
