Ardiana's Family

About the Family

Nanay Ardiana is not only a mother, but a grandmother and great grandmother as well! Nanay is an older woman and doesn’t prefer to speak English very much, but Gerlyn, her granddaughter, and John Nielson, her great-grandson live in the home with her and are happy to converse with guests. Family is Nanay’s pride and joy, and she spends as much time with them as possible. However, Ardiana is a business minded women and doesn’t let anything slow her down! She manages several boarding rooms for long term renting opportunities and sells dried fish in Cebu. Every week she dries the fish in her backyard and then travels with them to Cebu where they can be sold at a higher price. When she isn’t working on her business ventures or cleaning, she enjoys celebrating fiestas, birthday parties or even some relaxing while watching TV before bed (if you’re lucky, you may even see her bust out her moves).

About the House

Ardiana’s house is quite large and located close to the beach.  There is a lovely terrace at the front of the house, complete with furniture for guests to lie down on and take it easy.  The living room also serves as a good area to relax and appreciate the beautiful Malapascua weather, especially when the sizable windows are open.  Guests will find the bedroom towards the back of the house, which comes with two beds in the case tourists are traveling with several people (note that extra costs occur per head).  Directly next to the bedroom is the bathroom, allowing guests to move between the two rather discreetly.  Also, the bathroom has charming tile work, as well as several contemporary accessories, including a sink and shower head, both which have running water.  The kitchen at the very back of the house is newly renovated and opens up into the spacious backyard which holds another guest house that offers long term rental.
