Doesn't this Look Like Fun?

Looking for a great getaway At an Amazing price?

Sure you are. Who doesn’t like to have a good time, and save some money? So Here’s the deal….

I have a nice place in Botolan Zambales that’s walking distance to a good clean public beach, and Sundowners Beach Villas, Botolan. I’m not looking to make a profit. I don’t want to put this on Airbnb. I just want to offset some of my monthly outlay and the cost of electricity and furnishings and such by offering a great deal to a few of my friends. This will help me continue to keep this going for as long as possible.

Sound too good to be true? Maybe it does. But you are one of the lucky few people who may be able to access this one of kind deal.

Interested? Keep reading. Not interested? That’s OK too.

  • Walk to the free public beach and get some sun and surf.
  • Pay a consumable fee to use Sundowners facilities, restaurant, bar, pool, beach, etc.
