Inexpensive but accessible, Savatan Homestay can be as cheap as Php500 for a fan room with a private bath. The rooms are very spacious and the premises are always clean. Water is continuous throughout the day, and the drinking water from the dispenser is always powered on for hot or cold drink options any time of the day. The homestay is walking distance to Abad Street where all other needs can be met. About 10 meters along the street beside PNB. Ms. Agnes is easy to talk to and her souvenir shirts and bags are well designed and contemporary. She also entertains questions about the language if you are willing to ask and learn.

Homey feeling
Unlike the other homestays near the town center which is just an erected building, you'll be greeted by a a bermuda grass-laden front yard with flowers here at Savatan Homestay (which is maintained by the owner herself). It looks like far from the map but it's actually a 3-minute walk away from other homestays. And the bank is just outside the corner, Philippine National Bank, which is one of the two only banks in Batan Island. Inside, the interior might be quite small like the others but it's well decorated to make you feel at ease. Their wall and fixtures still look like newly installed, meaning they are good at maintaining their property. It also has it's own Honesty Store inside for your immediate needs. Once inside the fully furnished room with curtains, you get to smell a fragrant scent that will want to make you to lie down in bed. But what's nice is the view outside the window where Mt. Iraya stands clearly looking down upon the homestay. Expect a great sunrise here when you stay (and also a lot of visitors so make sure you reserve your room before it runs out). But just like Batanes, what's best here are the people at Savatan Homestay. You can approach them anytime and if something happens (i.e. brown-out), they won't leave you hanging. When we were eating or waiting for our transpo, we always had a good chat with them, not just about Batanes, but with daily life that makes socializing with them easier. After the whole day trip, you will get tired physically (but emotionally fulfilled) and there's no exception, even if it's Batanes. You just wanted to stay home to rest and to be taken care of. This is the place where you'll just simply say: "Uwi na tayo sa bahay" (Let's go back home).

Recommended for Batanes accommodation
We stayed for 4days, 3 nights in Savatan Homestay, 2 rooms for our group of six. It's basically an inn with a few rooms, some with AC, other are just fan rooms. Each rooms, as far as I know, has it's own toilet and bath. There is a sala on the second floor and also a balcony where you can just unwind after a day's tour. The balcony is facing Mt. Iraya so it's a relaxing view. The two rooms we booked were air-conditioned rooms. Upon check-in, rooms were clean and with comfortable beds but only 1 pillow for every bed. Good AC. Toilets are okay, room condition, okay also. There's a cabinet where you can store and hang your clothes. Since it's not a hotel, there was no room service and no housekeeping staff to clean our rooms everyday. It's okay since we were not expecting much.The receiving room or the sala, which also serves as breakfast area, is very clean and welcoming also. Breakfast was P150 per person. Separate payment from the accommodation. Simple and usual morning meals of rice, egg and whatever is the "ulam" (dish) for the day. For our first morning, it's the fried flying fish. For 2nd day was fried squid and 3rd day was beef strips (tapa). The caretaker, Ate Janice is really a darling. She's so welcoming with a sweet, genuine smile for each guest. You can request what you prefer for breakfast for the next day. As for the cost, our total payment for accommodation was P12,000 for 3 nights (for 2 rooms) so divide by 6 persons equals P2,000 per person only. It's very affordable and not hard on the budget. Another plus point for Savatan is the location, it's very near PNB with ATM so you can withdraw money anytime, walking distance to everywhere: pasalubong center, church, restaurants and coffee shops. If given a chance to visit Batanes again, I will definitely choose Savatan Homestay. It's really a "home away from home" accommodation and I will definitely recommend it to friends!

I love my homestay
The smile and the warm welcome of Ms Agnes & Janice from the first day until we leave the place has made me love the place more. That you are still in the Philippines were hospitality and true virtue of giving of themselves and making us feel we are safe and that all the people of Batanes is more than contended with what they have.

Savatan Homestay
We stayed here last Aug 5-9. Upon arrival we were greeted by Delfin Family who owns the Savatan. The couple is so accommodating and generous. The place is clean and they serve our breakfast on time. We also like the unlimited coffee they offer. During our last night Engr. Delfin served us with Pugita while drinking Aureus and the wine Kuya Manny (Our Favorite Tour Guide and Photographer) brought. They also have a pick up truck and innova which you can rent during your stay in Batanes. I highly recommend this place to stay in Batanes.
