Truly an amazing place. ”

I stayed here with my girlfriend on Saturday night. The owner Roger and his wife were incredibly accomadating and kind. The views are spectacular of the ocean. The grounds are very well kept. I especially enjoyed the lush tropical landscape. At the entrance to the hotel you will find Kenneth's Grill. My girlfriend and I ate both dinner and breakfast there. The food reminds me of back home in the states. I highly recommend the Meat Lovers Pizza. A beach is located directly across the road and is great for swimming. Just a 2 hour bus ride from Cebu City. I will definitely be visiting High Steps Pension again. A reasonable price and a great stay.

A very nice and quiet place. It is owned by a very nice couple that will make you feel comfortable .”

You can arrive by Bus from the North Cebu Bus Terminal and they will drop you off in front of the High Step Pension House. Just tell the conductor when you board. You will be met at the gate by the Groundskeepers family. Get your water bottle ready because this is called High Steps for a reason and once you meet the lovely owners you will need that water bottle. This establishment is for being very laid back , reading, relaxing. There is a nice restaurant a few kilometers towards Carmen that has amazing seafood and if you are adventurous there are many local street food vendors that serve amazing filippino food. The people are very freindly so please give them a smile and you will receive one in return.

A triathletes resting ground!🏊🏽🚴🏽🏃🏽”

It is our first time to visit Sogod, Cebu to join the 8080 Sogod, Cebu Triathlon Challenge. We came from a far city in mindanao and have been traveling by land and boat. It was a tiring travel and we needed a place to rest before the event. We came across with High steps pensionne thru Agoda and got our reservations. The pictures were quite helpful to give you a glimpse of the place. Upon arrival, the name of the establishment was on the mark. High steps it is.. but when you arrive on top, you will be in awe with the great view, away from city noise and a place to relax. When we checked our rooms it was clean, nice and spacious with a garden upfront to assemble our bikes. We were greeted with the owner with warmth and welcome. (what a great guy!) We were amazed with the rooms which has a kitchen to cook, a fridge and own comfort room with a price of P1,000.. It was a bang for the buck.. Its a 13km ride to sogod port but for fellow triathletes, its just a warm up with your bikes.. :)

Lovely quiet place with stunning virws”

Our third visit to this place with its lovely views. The staff go out of their way to please without being intrusive. The owners clearly see the venture as more than simply a money-generating venture. The only reason four four stars rather than five on two criteria is that internet is poor in some areas, places to eat out require a short jeepney/motorcycle ride and sea swimming is not the best in Cebu. Most bus conductors know 'High Steps', part of Catmon Bakhaw.

Perfect place for a quite getaway! ”

High Steps Pension is the perfect place to be if you want to spend some quite time. The oceanview is great and it gives you the perfect spot to watch the sunrise. Our room is well-maintained, and I loved it that it has a little kitchenette where you can cook your food. Roger, the owner of the place, is such a warm and welcoming guy! I'm so happy I found a place like this.

A lovely retreat”

Stunning views and lovely grounds. A small number of rooms varied in what they offer to suit both long stayers and the overnight guest. A wonderful place to escape city life and have a chance to reflect, write or allow relationship to deepen. Not a place for booze partying, although I understand High Steps is sometimes used as a wedding venue - not hard to see why given the photogenic surroundings. Swimming is possible across the road, but one would be advised to wear swim shoes when wading into the water. Roger and Lourdis went out of their way to help - be it providing a bottle opener or a plate of papaya to try. They clearly take pride in their establishment, which is also their home, and run High Steps for more than just financial gain. Quite simply one of the nicest places in which I have paid to stay in my 62 years. P, UK.

Great place to stay in Catmon”

The owner, Mr. Roger, along with his staff, were very friendly and accommodating. The room itself was quite good for its price. It was very neat and clean with all the basic necessities. We had a room with a garden view which we found very relaxing to see in the morning. The whole property is very clean and well maintained. Located on top of a hill, the place provided a sense of tranquility with its panoramic view of the ocean and the mountains of Catmon in the back.

Peaceful with a great view”

If you're looking for some much needed R&R away from the hustle and bustle of the city, this is the place to be. It doesn't hurt that the view of the calm blue seas from up here is beautiful and very relaxing. The owners, Roger and Lourdes, and their staff are very nice and accommodating. It is also quite easy to find as its gate is located right beside the road, and the bus drivers know exactly where it is in Bachao, Catmondaan, north of Cebu. We'll definitely stay here again should we find ourselves in these parts of the island.
