My name is Darrickson Cook, I’m a vegan, high fruit, I’ve been leading a healthy lifestyle for a long time. I left the USA in 2006 to begin a more minimalistic tropical life., i love durians and great weather and beaches or swimming pool resorts. Once I came up with the idea to create a business that would be environmentally friendly, bring people benefits and was in a pleasant beautiful place.
I love the Philippines and my choice has been on the island of Samal. Samal has an amazing nature and a perfect climate, which is almost not subject to seasonal fluctuations of weather at the equator. The island of Davao and the inner sea reliably protect it from ocean waves and monsoons. In addition, the Philippines has the cheapest fruits in Asia and the world. And I really like different fruits and just adore durians.
Eco-resort Hilltop is created in 2016 year. The resort is built on a hill, a bit away from the village and this is another bonus for the guests. The thickets and the height protect the cottages from the noise and smells of the road. I invite anyone who has an interest in a healthy lifestyle and/or enjoys the simplicity of a nice and clean and comfortable cottage in nature.
After vacationing in samal with some friends who were buying property, i met a filippina named Phuramie Mangana (aka. Mimi). Mimi convinced and inspired me to purchase a lot and later we made a business agreement to buy more land and to make some rental cottages for the increasing number of tourists coming to Kaputian. Mimi has been an exceptional help to create this paradise. Without Mimi as the managing partner, i would not be doing this. Thanks to Mimi for the vision and belief in the vacation rental business, and continued management! Mimi is maybe the best person in Kaputian to help with land purchases and building here in philippines.

Can't beat the location if you want to be downtown! Great views for Thunderstorms from the balcony! Pool area is beautiful, lush and green, nice condo! It's clean and modern, the internet is fast enough to support business calls on VoIP. Just enough amenities for basic cooking; one burner, one knife, rice cooker, blender (cool!) dishes and pots. Condo is cozy, fine for 2, maybe 3. I'm sure I will stay here again, the host is very communicative and a genuinely a nice guy. Short walk to Rizal park but still removed from the noise. Great place!
Nice and quiet, great place to medidate and gain peace of mind, work in solitude or as a base while touring samal. Get away from it all without being inconvenient.
Overall our stay was great! Both the owner and the caretaker (Ms. Mimi) was very responsive and accommodating. We have LTE on our phones so we never got bored at night, reception was really good, it's just sad that we had to leave really early the next day, as we tried to catch the early schedule back to Sta. Ana.
