The 5,244 sq. m. property is fronted by a cove located on the northeastern part of Puerto Galera Bay. The property is situated in Sabang Heights, f.k.a. Kabilang Gulod. It is a sitio of Barangay Sabang, well known for its diving resorts. Being by a cove gives a sense of exclusivity and provides accessibility by water as well as by land. Land access is through 180 meters of private driveway from the provincial road. It is about 7 minutes to the Poblacion or town proper. The main residence sits on an elevated terrain overlooking the cove and offers a quiet retreat to the owners, sometimes a pleasant but limited sanctuary for a few boats.The surrounding mountains protect the cove from strong winds keeping the water still making it ideal for kayaking, snorkeling and other water sports all year round.
The shoreline is defined by thick rows of mangrove that serve to protect the land from erosion at the same time provide a coddling habitat to certain marine lives.
This private property is fenced with concrete and barbed wires. The section facing the cove is wrapped with marble rocks for its retaining walls. The inland area is planted with coconut trees and fruit trees like mango, cashew, macopa (water apple), atis (sugar apple), chico and others. Although this is a residential property, there is ample room for commercialization.

Electricity is supplied by ORMECO and an 18 KVA diesel generator is on standby during power outages. Water is supplied by the municipality and stored in a 10,000 litter concrete tank.
