About Michelle Ignacio
My husband and I settled in Port Barton as we felt that this area was paradise and had the same potential as Boracay, without the crowds and overdevelopment. We have 2 beachfront homes in Port Barton Palawan, both listed here on Homeaway. We decided to rent the homes to help cover the costs of maintenance and to share the charm and beauty of this area. The feeling we have every time we arrive here is exciting. The home is simple but it's the freedom and peace we feel here. Cruising through the islands, swimming on our own beach and enjoying this very special place. I'm sure you'll feel what we feel.
Michelle Ignacio purchased this Villa in 1997
Why Michelle Ignacio chose Port Barton
My husband first visited Boracay 25 years ago before we found Port Barton. We both felt that Port Barton had the same potential as Boracay so we bought a Beach front lot there. Over the next few years we built the home and entertainment area and caretakers cottage. We love the home feel part of the community here. We hope you will also feel part of the community.
What makes this Villa unique
Villa Marguerita and our other home Gilligans Port Barton are unique in Port Barton as they are the only beachfront homes available for rent in Port Barton. The grounds at Villa Marguerita are large ( 3000 sq. metres with 50 metres of absolute beach frontage overlooking clean white sands and Port Barton bay and islands ) with some pretty gardens, several beachfront bar/entertainment/cabana areas to relax in and watch the sometimes magnificent sunsets out to the south China Sea. Our home is available for private rental only which includes exclusive use of the property excluding the caretakers cottage, so you won't be sharing the home with anyone else. This is the only home to boast 24 hours lights, fans and refrigeration as we use around 18 solar panels to power the home. Port Barton town power only runs from 5pm to 11pm, so everywhere else closes at 11. Our beer is definitely the coldest in town without a doubt, something very important to many people. Ours is the only home that can accommodate large groups as we have a commercial sized kitchen and an experienced cook that knows the meals to prepare for foreigners. Ideally the 3 bedroom home sleeps 6 however we can cater for larger groups. 8 is the maximum that our caretakers are happy to accept now. Exceptions are sometimes made, but for larger groups we recommend that some guests stay at the neighbouring resort Summerhomes. Our large kitchen can feed hundreds as we sometimes do when we invite local children for our legendary Christmas parties.
100% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.
Met and exceeded our expectations
Villa Margerita was a highlight of our Philippines holiday. The house is a wonderful mix of Philippine charm, home comforts, privacy and space. The location idyllic. We had several wonderful nights going to sleep to the sound of the ocean just out the door, sauntering down to the cafe for a lovely breakfast looking out over the beach, days spent exploring gorgeous locations, with the advice and help of the lovely host and staff, coming home to a massage onsite, a shower, dinner and drinks with great company, before the few steps to bed to enjoy the ocean's soft lull as we drifted back to sleep. We were close enough to town to easily enjoy all on offer, but far enough away to soak up the peace of the location. Our host and his staff could not have done more to make our stay the great experience it was, not only providing us with excellent service but just as often great company too. When we return to Port Barton, Villa Margerita is where we will happily stay.
It was our pleasure to host fellow Aussies in our piece of paradise. Hope to see you back here sometime.
Authentic beach villa experience
We really enjoyed our stay at this beachfront Villa it was a good place to relax and unwind. The staff were friendly and there were lots of activities to offer. Would come back again!
Fabulous 7 day Port Barton stay at Villa Margerita
We were fortunate to have the large upstairs bedroom with private bathroom, large covered deck and views to the beach.
We spent many hours here relaxing, reading, playing games and enjoying the view.
We found all the staff super friendly and thank you Marilyn the manager very much for all her help. She exchanged some US dollars for us when she went to Puerto Princesa as we were getting a little low on PHP. She did our washing when required and her staff kept our room always clean and serviced.
Our room had a fridge and fan. We found we didn't need air conditioning as we always left the doors to the deck open and the solar fan was fine. Mosquito netting above the bed was great and we didn't have any major problems, we did however burn the insect coils come the evening.
The free wifi was great as we needed to plan for our next part of the trip.
It was lovely to meet both Michelle and Mal who arrived a couple of days before we left. A lovely friendly couple and we enjoyed our time with them.
There is so much to mention I am sure to have forgotten something important but we would definitely recommend this property to a couple and especially a family group. There are free kayaks and a paddle board for use. Hammocks and lounging area with bean bags.
They arranged for the massage ladies to come and give us a massage at the property.
We had a great time and wish you well with developments at Gillian's their other property. Thank you Mich and Mal.
I own this house so why does Homeaway ask for Review???
We hope our guests love staying at our houses as much as we do.

Many thanks to Jane and Bernard and your lovely group for spending time with us in Port Barton. We will never forget your time with us on the beach for my birthday. Mwahh mwahh mwahhhhh
Lovely property right by the beach, enjoyed our stay here.
Enjoyed our 4 nights stay at Villa Marguerita. The property was huge and the house was lovely. It is right by the beach and they have kayaks and paddleboards available for use by guests. My kids loved that they have the pool table too.
The house was airy and cool, no need for AC. Bathrooms are newly renovated. The kitchen needed some upgrade though. Cupboards are old and not very appealing. It was also a little dark in the kitchen making cooking in the early morning a bit tricky.
Our home is situated beachfront in Port Barton Palawan which is a little south of San Vicente the local government centre. Port Barton is located between the world renowned Underground River and popular destination El Nido. Port Barton is a 3 hour drive from Puerto Princessa, the capital city of Palawan, known as the last frontier of the Philippines.
Our home is situated in a marine park area. Boating, island hopping and trips to the several waterfalls nearby are some popular activities. Trips to the Underground River and El Nido can be organised by our staff.
Other Activities: Paddle Boating and Kayaking. Island Hopping, snorkelling, diving. We have 2 Stand Up Paddle boards available for rent by our guests.
