Our Homestay in Laoag.


Laog Ilocos Norte Homestay afrodable accomodation
 
When I first planned our Ilocos trip, I didn't expect much activities in Laoag and its nearby city/munipalities as I was more excited to see and explore the white beach in Pagudpud. I first planned to just take a commuter's guide and hit the road like locals do but my sister got a flu on the same day of our flight making me change my mind and contacted Kuya Glenn Tolentino for a guided tour instead. I also asked him if they have a vacant room to accommodate us since we still don’t have a place to stay though we have some prospect hotels but we are lacking time and energy to check those, besides I just gained back my health a day ago from a flu as well.

Since I am not that enticed about the where about in Laog, Paoay, Batac and Sarrat I leave everything to Kuya Glenn. The transaction was fast, I called him at 6PM asking for the service and a Homestay and fortunately he says yes. We are departing Manila 8:45 PM same day and touching down Laoag international airport in an hour and ten minutes. Kuya Glenn fetches us from the airport without us waiting for even a minute and that was really amazing.

We headed to their house and it was great! This room cost us Php350.00/person per night with breakfast.

The room is visibly clean; actually not only the room was clean but the entire house. Here is additional beds for two. :)

The comfort room is sharing but it’s really nice as well, it’s just that I am a bit scared of slipping myself while getting inside the tab since the tab and the shower is combined.

A very nice place to put all your stuff - something neccesary for those who are staying longer.


The entire house was filled with silence so really have a very good sleep that night. Beyond the service we expected, early morning the nex day we went to Sandunes and when we came back the room was already cleaned from the morning mess we left behind. And the towels that we used where already replaced with new and clean ones So kind of them isn’t it?

Kuya Glenn’s wife is our cook – she prepared sumptuous breakfast for us making us forget about our diets. And, the entire family is so accommodating J . His little boy saying welcome when we came in and good bye as we left the house.

Laoag homestay and Kuya Glenn's tour service entirely wowed me up until now. We enjoyed our home stay and we enjoyed the tour – in fact Laoag surprises me so much more than Vigan and that I guess because of Kuya Glenn’s effort to give us stories and to feed us with local knowledge that are hard to find from any books.

For your Laoag Tours or even All in Ilocos tour– I highly recommend Kuya Glenn. He's nice, a very perky person and he has with him a pocketful of stories. A warning though, bring camera and extra camera, take with you some extra battery and extra USB or Memory card coz this man is a cam whore! Hehe J

PS: I am including this in hotel tags as a very nice alternative for stay as such. :) If you are considering this stay might as well take a tour service too because the tourist spots in Laoag are quite distant from each other unlike those in Vigan. Though trycicle will do but you may end up paying higher specially if you are in a large group.

    1. Hi Cherry, Yes they have a lot. The heritage village in Vigan is a place that can take you to our countries old days. Old houses are everywhere. Go ahead and take a visit as soon as you could :) I am posting more photos soon.
