There’s a bunch of things to see in the Philippines and not all of them are beaches. Iloilo is known for their beautiful hidden lagoons and rock formations, as well as churches and old houses reminiscent of how life used to be in the Spanish era. But sure, Iloilo has their fair share in beautiful white sand beaches and untouched islands. It’s a province in Western Visayas where you can see and experience it all. After you’ve eaten all the fresh seafood and their famouse La Paz batchoy, relax in one of these 10 best places to stay in Iloilo all from Airbnb.

1. Cozy 3-Bedroom House

Entire Home/Apartment – 6 Guests


Host Joyanne guarantees a hotel-like stay in this modern fully-furnished house they have in the city. For only P1500, they can arrange for a private city tour with their own car. This place is a sure pleaser with its 5-star rating and generous reviews from their previous guests.

2. Homey Apartment at Uptown Condotel

Entire Home/Apartment – 4 Guests


Uptown Condotel was one of the highly recommended places to stay in while in Iloilo. It’s a good thing we found one for rent on Airbnb for less than P1,500 a night. If you love the city, this place is for you. It’s super near the major establishments like malls, hospitals, and even party places.

3. Residencia Singkwenta

Entire Home – 4 Guests


Though inside the city, this house will still give you that tropical feel with its lush green house plants and trees. But don’t worry, they have pretty good Wi-Fi too so you won’t feel totally away from the city life.

4. Flora’s 4-Bedroom House

Entire Home – 8 Guests


Flora’s 4-Bedroom house for 8 guests is a steal! It’s only P1,487 a night plus it’s fully air-conditioned and with complete amenities. You can even bring in your own food and cook there to minimize your expenses while you’re travelling!

5. Balay ni Inday

Private Room – 2 Guests


We are loving this room’s rustic interior. Balay ni Inday might seem a tad bit expensive for a 2-person-per-room Airbnb but the rate comes with access to the gym and a beautiful garden. The place is on the boundary of Molo and Arevalo, both great places to be in for food and historical sights.

6. Iloilo Beach House

Entire Home – 10 Guests


Here’s a top-notch beach house if you’re going to Iloilo for the sea breeze. Graham, the owner of the place, is a superhost and has received many 5-star reviews for this house because of its exquisite yet cozy feel. The house comes with a private pool and your own private access to a white sand beach.

7. Nature’s Eye Resort Cottage

Private Room – 2 Guests


Nope, you’re not going to fall off a cliff! The cottage at the Nature’s Eye resort is one of the peaceful ones we’ve seen because of its nearness to nature. The sea’s only three minutes away! You have full access to the beach cove right in front of where you live and two other undiscovered beaches nearby.

8. Private Room in Guimbal

Private Room – 2 Guests


Backpacking around Iloilo? This private room for rent in Guimbal should be your first choice. While the city hustle can tire you out, you can take refuge in this simple and light room. It’s only P496 so it’s a good choice if you’re looking for a decent place to stay in while not breaking the bank. There’s a laundry, a restaurant, and a grocery nearby too for all your needs.

9. Deveron House Trapiche in Oton

Private Room – 2 Guests


This old-style hacienda includes a tropical garden you can find peace in while in the city. And if that’s not enough, this place is also close to the beach. I think this house will really make you feel like that rich haciendera or haciendero with the hat and just looking over your land with utmost satisfaction.

10. Sheridan Boutique Resort Room

Private Room – 2 Guests


The Sheridan Boutique Resort room comes with full amenities and a nice pool view outside. And it’s not just a view – you can easily access this gigantic pool area and their outdoor garden any time of day. It’s like a 4-star  hotel room for half the price.
