Wilma's Family

About the Family

Wilma keeps busy with several businesses, and in particular, makes delicious caramelized peanuts, which travelers will certainly love tasting. She also used to make several different Filipino desserts which she sold, but no longer does so as a business. However, her mango float is to die for! She has recently had a career change and has decided to go back to school to study education in hopes of becoming a teacher. She is very involved in the community and cares about the future of Malapascua.

Wilma is a single mom of two beautiful girls, who both attend elementary school on the island. During their days off or during the summer months, Wilma likes to take the girls snorkeling or to the beach to have a picnic. Whether you’re a good singer or not, karaoke is something you must try while visiting the Philippines and you can do it in the comfort of home here at Wilma’s house.

About the House

The home of Wilma is centrally located in the middle of the island, about a 5 minute walk from the beach. Although their home is farther from the typical tourist area of the island, this location is far more peaceful and full of domesticated animals (namely goats and dogs)! Wilma’s ancestors were the first people to live in Malapascua and therefore all the houses surrounding hers belong to family. Guests who like to stargaze will find plenty in the open spaces of Wilma’s home. Inside the house, there is a videoke machine in the living room that can be used by guests, and surely Wilma and her kids will join in. The bedroom is off the living area and has plenty of shelves for you to put your things and an electric fan to keep you cool. The bathroom is a bucket-flush toilet along with bucket shower. If you are looking for a quiet escape in the hustle and bustle of Malapascua, join Wilma in her house for your stay here.
