Deciding to stay at Veny’s or Chateau de Tan-awan for our Oslob vacation felt just right. Sure, there are plenty of resorts lining up the whale shark adventure location, but why not try a homey stay? Besides I am a sucker for rabbits and pets and home-baked goodies. I have to thank The Other Side of Mae for the details and insight.
Chateau de Tan-awan can be contacted by mobile at (0917) 912 7783.
The place is a home by the sea with a garden where you will find the host’s pet rabbits, cats and rooster. I got scared of the rooster while hanging to dry my clothes – he was huge! and kept approaching me 😰🐓
If you do an Internet search on the place, you may easily discover about ‘the’ banana bread (Php105.00/loaf). They have other bakes too. We could not resist and bought their walnut brownies (Php130/styro tray) with the banana bread as well.
Our room has aircon and fan and a double-sized bed. Since we requested for another bed, a single-sized mattress on the floor was provided. Toilet and bath are shared with towels, soap and shampoo provided. Drinking water is free (yehey!) so you can fill up your water jugs for the much needed hydration. Since we used the aircon, the room rate is Php1,200/night (if we didn’t, it would have costed us only Php700. Hey, we wanted to snooze the night away 😴).
