2) A Spacious Loft with an Ocean View- in Boracay, Philippines

This loft-style apartment is located on a hill, so, it may not be the ideal choice if you are traveling with elderly or handicapped people. But if that’s not a problem for you, it’s time to say hello to one of fascinating villas that we could find along one of the most beautiful beaches of the world: Boracay, Philippines.

The cost is only one of the reasons. The facility itself is another. Blessed with an unbelievable view of the Boracay Sea and a swimming pool (Let’s remind you, the pool is 4 meters deep. So, make sure you know to swim). Apart from the usual amenities like Wi-Fi and Cable TV, you can also enjoy an early morning sunrise, or a full moon at night in the pool. Sweet!
