About this listing
Right on Sitio Tukon, experience the true natural beauty of Batanes. Photographs of its picturesque scenery and hilly mountains are an absolute understatement when it comes to this accommodation. If you want to isolate yourself from the rest of the world, UKUY'S PLACE is your next home while in Batanes.
~ BRAND NEW rooms are available at the Annex (Rawut, Sudi, Uvi, Dukay, Paray & Wakay). Book a room to experience the magic of Batanes.
~ Once at Ukuy's Place, spending outdoors is probably what you want to do all day. The panoramic views of the surrounding hills are simply breathtaking. It's probably something you don't see often in the metropolitan. Take as many pictures as you want when you explore the rest of the property. These are highlights you'd want to remember for the rest of your trip. Better yet, start planning your next trip to Batanes! Traveling with friends and/or family is optional!
~ At the end of the day, your simple and quiet bedroom will provide a refuge from everything else. Nothing beats fresh linens and an air conditioner to complete your stay. There is (1) SINGLE-sized bed to keep you company. Hooks have been provided to hang your towels and a cabinet where you can place your personal belongings.
~ Luckily, as a solo traveler, you'll have your own bathroom. As you take a hot shower, you'll notice just how lush the surrounding greens are right outside the window.
~ Right outside of the bedroom, feel free to hang out at the patio (shared with Room 3). There are a couple of tables and chairs where you can have your meals or convert it to a workspace if you need to.
~ Guests have access to common areas like gazebo, living and dining areas, kitchen and patio. Feel free to explore the roof deck located next door right on the annex to experience the 360-degree view of Sitio Tukon. The view deck is where you'd want to be where you can spot FUNDACION PACITA, TUKON CHAPEL and PAGASA TUKON RADAR STATION. Don't forget to take selfies with the gorgeous background!
~ We have mini honesty stores located both at the original building and the annex. If you wish to purchase an item, please leave the money in the container. While in Batanes (or anywhere else), please respect our Ivatan culture by respecting these embedded values.
~ If you wish to cook, there's an extra charge of PHP100/day, to be given to Ate Grace or Tita Edna. This is because of limited resources on the island, unlike Manila. Payment shall include complimentary drinking water. Located in the original structure, our kitchen includes:

Please respect the check-in and check-out times of the homestay. The bedroom and restroom need to be cleaned for incoming guests as well. Just in case if the assigned room is still being cleaned, you can utilize the common areas of our homestay or you may leave your luggage in the room first, explore the nearby areas or get a headstart on your tour.
~ Tours are available upon request but are charged separately from the accommodation. Please inquire ahead of reservation dates so we can schedule a tour for you.
~ Cellphone signal is intermittent at times. Smart's LTE is up and working. However, it may be a tad difficult for Globe users though :(
~ For those dependent on internet usage, I would recommend bringing a Smart pocket Wi-Fi but please don't expect the connection to be stable compared to the mainland.
