Two months ago I was searching for a cheap accommodation for my future trip to Siquijor and I stumbled upon with a fellow blogger’s entry Natalie of My Wandering Soles about this cheap room/accommodation for only Php 400.00 in San Juan, Siquijor Island. I dialed the number and made a reservation for at least 2 pax directly with the owner itself Ate Lorna. I did not make a follow up as I was reluctant with the sweet and cheerful voice of Ate Lorna and relied on with the feedback I received from travelers who’d been to Siquijor.

A day before my trip I made a call to secure the room I reserved. I was shocked when she told me that her place was caught on fire a month ago. I felt sad for her and promised that I shall visit upon my arrival in the island.
Meeting her for the first time, she welcomed me as if we have known each other for years. She told me that the fire started at the second floor of the house where her nieces and nephew were sleeping. They weren’t able to save a thing except for themselves and the clothes they were wearing.
They were so thankful that nobody got hurt. They even had guests during that time that was in the not so fortunate time got all their money and some properties burned into ashes. It was a sad day for Ate Lorna that her source of livelihood was gone just like that.

With teary eyes she told me that the association of resort owners in the island had at least gave some financial assistance for her family to start all over again. Even some former foreigner guests who have learned the incident reached out to help their family.
This only shows that taking a short refuge in their 4 room resort was undeniably convenient for their guests. They are friendly and very much reliable to help you in case you needed something. This could be the reason why their guests both foreigners and locals, keep on coming back to the ill-fated little haven.
Before I left I gave ate Lorna a word of encouragement telling her that it was just a challenge in their lives and God will provide and guide them through. Her husband happily told me that they will try to finish the house/resort within 6 months since a lot of callers are hoping to stay in their humble abode. I told them that when I come back to Siquijor, their place will always be my first choice as there will be no end at Lorna’s End of the World.
