Right now we have the Little Happy House, Happy House and the Sky Hut . The Little Happy House has a self contained private guest room suitable for a 2 people. The Happy House is a self-contained unit that can accommodate a group of up to 12 people but we only ever have up to 5 people in the space otherwise. This space has a large shared room, dinning area, relax hangout space, study desk space, and an equipped kitchen. We also have a simple bamboo hut that we call the Sky Hut with views of the ocean and mountains. On the drawing board are three more bamboo huts and a tree house.

Voices of our previous organic farmstay and WWOOF volunteer guests
This is such an awesome organic farm to learn about organic farming while having a super relaxing time. It’s was a nice experience for me to get away from busy stressful life in Manila and come to breathe fresh air and hear and see nature again at night with the fireflies and crickets sounds. David and Carol were awesome. I planted avocado trees with four other guest so I will return when I can and check on them. This was definitely an unforgettable experience with a lot of fun.

It had a really great experience at the farm. I own my own land in Tarlac and am developing it into an organic farm space so it was good to get some good ideas and learn new things as well as share my knowlege. I loved the food – natural and great plus the space was relaxing.
I have never lived such a healthy lifestyle as I have in my few days at the Happy House Farm. It’s in a remote but easy to get to beautiful place, and with amazingly lovely people!

Accommodation at Carol and David organic farm was wonderful! Great for those who wants to know how to live on the Philippine rural areas, so this organic farm is fantastic. Helpfulness, joke, kind-heartedness and willingness to help residents of the farm is unreal !
We joined our friend for an organic Farmstay for the Chinese New Year weekend at the farm and just loved it. We were really welcomed by Carol and David and our group got a lot from the experience including the children seeing we were able to have a BB! fire at night and have fun. Our daughter loved it too seeing she could play with little Kyra.
The stay on the farm was just great!!! I loved it!!! It is such a peaceful and relaxing space, surrounded by nature and local farms. David is such a funny guy, he constantly make me laugh with all his jokes 😀 I met many great people at the Happy House Organic Farm and we all became like a sweet little family in just one week. We only had to work as much and when as we wanted and the rest of the time we were free to do what we felt like doing. Thank you David and Carol for this superb and special experience. I can recommend it to everyone!

We loved our 8 day stay at the Happy House Farm as WWOOF. David works so hard to revitalise the land and stabalise the organic property and he’s really knowledgeable about organic farming practices giving us useful feedback as we worked, letting us know how we can do things easier and faster, but in the end he let us know when we got it right. Carol is an amazing host and a pure genius in the kitchen making up her own recipes and creating great meals. She is so kind. We cannot wait to come back in the future.

The Happy House Farm was a wonderful experience for me and although I only stayed 1 week as a WWOOF, but it was still action packed! We had a different project to do each day and within the week we got all the things on our to-do-list completed successfully. Kyra their young daughter, is such a joyful bundle of life. Be prepared to work hard and enjoy the feeling of a great sense of accomplishment at the end of the day. I do hope to return one day soon.

Fred and I stayed for only one week at the Happy House Organic Farm and it really was too short. David, Carol and little Kyra, along with all the local community people living close by were very welcoming. We arrived in the dry season, so not much planting work was being done. Instead we worked on water and soil management projects with David. This was an unexpected but very interesting experience. We learned a lot about limiting soil erosion and how to recover eroded soil. You are absolutely free at the farm. You can work as much as you want, take nice walks, visit the local beach or chat with the other amazing overseas guest volunteers. Everyone was so open-minded so we learnt a lot from everyone. Keep being so Happy, Carol, David and Kyra! Thanks a lot for this amazing stay!

My time was limited so my stay was only a week with David and Carol at their special Happy House organic farm in La Union, northern Philippines and yet it was such a great experience that I took so much from. They’re a hugely welcoming family and wider community in a beautiful home nested in a beautiful valley on top of the hill overlooking the Ocean. They have a strong grasp of what it really takes to live naturally and organically, are a basket-full of meaningful knowledge and ideas that they love sharing with the guests that come to stay. Thanks guys, would genuinely love to come back and next time I will stay longer.

It was an amazing ten days that I stayed on the farm. David, Carol and special little Kyra are such a loving and friendly family. I felt totally and completely at home as a WWOOF. I learned so much about organic farming. Thank you David, Carol and special Kyra. I will visit you again for sure soon 😛
