Where to Stay in Oslob


Oslob in Cebu, Philippines is a phenomenal place. There’s so much to do, and all of it is incredibly beautiful. If you’re on a time crunch, it’s hard to pick — whale sharks, diving, boat tours, beaches, hiking, and waterfalls. We fully intend to go back and cover the things we missed, and we will definitely be staying at Villa Modern Deluxe again!

You can find Villa Modern Deluxe on airbnb and on Facebook. Vilma’s niece Ruby takes care of the bookings and house during your stay. She is wonderful — we can’t say enough good things about her. She will be able to book the rest of your activities during your stay if you ask her, and she is always happy to chat, answer questions, or provide you with anything you need.

*Tip: Ask Ruby to schedule you a massage! The masseuses come to the house and set up on the balcony — it ranked in the top three massages I’ve ever had (and I’ve had a lot of massages!). Plus, the cost is around 10 USD an hour.

The house is totally baller. With it’s airy, modern feel, it has two floors, two balconies, three bedrooms, full air conditioning, wifi, and private ocean access. It’s amazing. At 100 USD per night, you sincerely cannot beat it.

A multitude of stairs lead you down from the house to a series of private, secluded cabanas that run along the ocean (complete with outlets and wifi). You can post up, enjoy the view, and take a dip in the crystal clear, turquoise water. There’s even a hammock and rope swing in the cove.

Villa Modern attendees will bring you towels and refreshments as needed!

Facing east, Villa Modern has a perfect view of the sunrise; you don’t want to miss it!

      Thanks, Danielle. We chose to rent a car because we were traveling around and staying all over the island. If you’ll be going straight to Villa Modern from the airport, just message Ruby (the host) when you book, and she will send a driver to pick you up. She is able to set up anything you like as far as activities too!
