BOOKING POLICY

  • Bookings are required a minimum of 48 hours in advance. This is essential as it allows the host families time to prepare the room prior to guest arrival.
  • Payment will be in cash upon your arrival, paid directly to the homestay admin officer.
  • Meal and laundry payments can be paid directly to the host.

* ATMs are not available on the island. Please plan accordingly.

CHECK-IN AND CHECK-OUT TIME

  • Check-in time is 12:00 PM – please let us know your estimated time of arrival so that somebody from the family can be there to welcome you
  • Check-out time is by 11:00 AM

CANCELLATION POLICY

  • Cancellations are free within 48 hours of arrival time. If for any reason you need to cancel your booking, please contact us as soon as possible via email.
  • In the unfortunate event that you have to shorten your trip, there will be no refund of payment.
  • A homestay cannot be compared to a hotel. A cancellation or shortened booking has a large economic impact on the families with which you are staying.

WHERE DOES MY MONEY GO?

Inatô Homestay is set up as a community based organisation and managed by its member, so 100% of the money you pay goes to the group. For transparency purposes, this is how the money earned gets used:

  • 500 PHP: a one time fee per room booked is paid towards administration costs (salary of the administration officer, phone, internet access, etc)
  • 50 PHP per night and per room: this money is allocated to the seed fund (more details in history page)
  • The rest of the money is paid directly to the family you stayed with.

You will find more details in our vision, history and positive impact.
