This was not our first choice but the owner of the resort we booked decided that we are not worthy to stay at his/her place so he/she gave our reservation to a visiting relative the day before our arrival. I got a call from our contact the morning on our to Siquijor already. It was a good thing that we arrived earlier than our original plan of arrival which was midnight, and have some time to look for other places to stay.
In the Shade became our home away from home.
It was a bit pricey and went a little over our budget, but since we have our own kitchen we were able to cook our own food instead of going out to eat all the time and we have the whole place to ourselves so it was worth it.
“In the Shade” is two-story studio style apartment just along the beach front of San Juan. It’s furnished with a very stylish kitchen and free drinking water as well. It’s non-air conditioned but three big ceilings fan are strategically place inside the room. It’s surrounded by windows so you get fresh sea breeze all through out the day.
The caretaker basically left us alone but is always there when we need something.
Each apartment has it’s own spacious balcony facing the beach, a really nice place to relax when it’s too hot to go into the water.
You also have your own big front yard , spacious enough to have an outdoor bbq with family or friends under the shade of coconut trees.
In the Shade is definitely a great place to stay when you visit Siquijor. Just make sure you shop for food supplies before getting there.
