Balai La-Hi is a provincial home experience in an idyllic seaside setting at the heart of the Philippine islands called Marinduque. A 3-bedroom house with a reading room, dining room, a lanai by the garden, a terrace and an azotea overlooking the sea. All bedrooms have their own toilet and shower, sheets and towels provided, and the kitchen is fully equipped.
Balai' La-Hi is a private sanctuary by the sea in Barrio San Rafael (a short walk from the Cawit Pier in Boac, Marinduque). There is nothing here except the sound of waves, birds chirping, leaves rustling in the wind, and sea vessels coming and going. Everything about this place is homey, natural and honest. Spending time here somehow has the ability to renew one's sense of gratitude and hope :)
Do you need a quiet place to run away to? Are you tired of the city? Or maybe you want to spend undistracted quality time with a loved one ? Or with your family ? your friends ? This is the home for you. Come and experience bucolic bliss and home cooking that will bring back wonderful memories, where the wifi may be weak but real conversations are unforgettable.
Delightfully, Balai La-Hi is not all there is to the island province of Marinduque. It is also a historic province whose towns date back to the Spanish era. For mountain lovers, there's a majestic Volcano called Malindig you can climb and wild forests you can hike. For bikers, there are well paved roads running along pristine coastlines as well as unbeaten paths into the "ilayas" of each barrio. But ! Most wonderful about this place are the cheerful barrio folk you will surely get to know .
Once a part of the province of Batangas, Marinduque is called the "heart of the Philippines" because it is indeed geographically at the heart of the archipelago and shaped like one. Maybe thats why it is also consistently awarded the most peaceful province in the Philippines.
