Floating Cottages in Carmen, Agusan del Norte
Last February, we had an amazing family day on one of the floating cottages in Carmen, Agusan del Sur.
The night before, we celebrated my Uncle’s birthday and on the same night, we had a fun gender reveal.
My sister and cousins decided on the same day that it would be fun to have a gender reveal because we are almost a complete family. They prepared the balloons for props. It was a fun, emotional, and exciting night for all of us.
The next day, we went to this floating cottage located an hour away from Butuan City.
This part of Carmen has a lot of floating cottages available for rent.
- Rent price: Php 1,000.00 for half day
- Time breakdown: 6 am to 12 pm, 12 pm to 6 pm
- Contact details of the floating cottage we rented: 09121642992
- Life jackets are available
- There’s a mini pool for the kids
- You need to bring your own food
- Check the weather before booking
From Butuan City, we went out around 7:30 in the morning. We bought some food on the way then we headed straight to Carmen. It was less than an hour away so if you’re from Butuan City, this is a perfect option for your quick getaway with friends and family.
The weather was really good during our visit.
My Aunt said the last time they visited there were big waves. She said, if the weather is not good, that is exciting for teenagers or young adults but not for older people who will get sea sickness easily.
Luckily, we picked the perfect day (even without checking the weather before going). My Lola was a bit afraid but she survived the whole experience though. Hahaha. She was just sitting while watching us swimming and enjoying the water.
We had kids on the cottage as well, they were really excited and had so much fun the entire day. Even the adults had fun too!
Half a day on the floating cottage is enough to enjoy the view and the sea.

Have you been to a floating cottage too? How’s your experience?
Must say that this Floating cottage looks like a fun venue for Family Gathering and Food Feista. How I wish it was near to us!
On my next vacation after COVID, I will try out one of these floating cottages in the Philippines. These will help me relax and be one with nature as I listen to the calming sound of the waves surrounding me 🙂
The sea is the only place where I’m reassured that everything is going to be alright. The view of the sea from and in the floating cottage is always a good idea! Plus it’s a good measure during pandemic to maintain social distancing from strangers.

Wowww! Kanindot ? Gimingaw nako ug dagat. Haha. Maynta naay ingon ana dri Lapu Lapu.
I’m actually a fan of floating cottages! Lots of open air and the smell of the sea can be had! Ganahan na nuon ko muadtog dagat ay. Weeee

Please continue sharing your travels and stories about Mindanao. That’s something that we also need to focus on, there are a lot of beautiful places in Mindanao. Stay safe and take care.
I heard there’s a floating cottage in Olango Island but I haven’t tried that one yet. We planned to visit there two weekends ago but decided not to pursue because of the news on Covid. Oh, well. I am happy for you, Roneth. You are having wonderful time there. This is one of the best things when in the province, the sea is just a kembot away (haha) and there are a lot of amazing places that are waiting to be discovered with family and loved ones.
