Fred and I stayed for only one week at the Happy House Organic Farm and it really was too short. David, Carol and little Kyra, along with all the local community people living close by were very welcoming.

We arrived in the dry season, so not much planting work was being done. Instead we worked on water and soil management projects with David. This was an unexpected but very interesting experience. We learned a lot about limiting soil erosion and how to recover eroded soil.

You are absolutely free at the farm. You can work as much as you want, take nice walks, visit the local beach or chat with the other amazing overseas guest volunteers. Everyone was so open-minded so we learnt a lot from everyone.

Keep being so Happy, Carol, David and Kyra! Thanks a lot for this amazing stay!

The stay on the farm was just great!!! I loved it!!! It is such a peaceful and relaxing space, surrounded by nature and local farms. David is such a funny guy, he constantly make me laugh with all his jokes :-D

I met many great people at the Happy House Organic Farm and we all became like a sweet little family in just one week.

We only had to work as much and when as we wanted and the rest of the time we were free to do what we felt like doing. We also got to choose the work that excited us which was also really great.

Thank you David and Carol for this superb and special experience. I can recommend it to everyone!

The Happy House Farm was a wonderful experience for me and although I only stayed 1 week, but it was still action packed!

We had a different project to do each day and within the week we got all the things on our to-do-list completed successfully.

This family is so accommodating! They are very kind and have great plans for the upcoming future.

David will provide plenty of insight into farming and energy while Carol is a lovely warm woman and a super amazing cook. Kyra their young daughter, is such a joyful bundle of life.

Be prepared to work hard and enjoy the feeling of a great sense of accomplishment at the end of the day as a result. It was also really great to interact and connect with other locals in the area and get to visit the local market place in Rosario. I do hope to return one day soon.

We loved our 8 day stay at the Happy House Farm. David works so hard to revitalise the land and stabalise the organic property and he’s really knowledgeable about organic farming practices giving us useful feedback as we worked, letting us know how we can do things easier and faster, but in the end he let us know when we got it right.

Carol is an amazing host  and a pure genius in the kitchen making up her own recipes and creating great meals. She is so kind, and knows a lot about the surrounding area around the farm seeing she grew up in a small farming village just 20km away.  We learned so much fro Carol. She shared her recipes with us too and we are eager to try them out soon!

Little Kyra, David and Carol’s under 2 year old daughter, was the cherry on the top for our visit. She’s such a happy-go-lucky, caring and kind child and of course a massive bundle of energy – we really enjoyed our time with her.

David, Carol, and Kyra made us feel like family from our very first night at the Happy House. Even though at times the work was hard it was meaningful and diverse, and never boring. We definitely recommend this experience to other travellers!

We are wait to come back in the future and we will be excited to see just how much the farm has changed :)
Thanks again for everything!!

It was an amazing ten days that I stayed on the farm. David, Carol and special little Kyra are such a loving and friendly family. I felt totally and completely at home, and I got to work and rest as much I wanted.

The thing which is great about the Happy House Organic Farm, is that you can do as much or as little as you feel like – but to be honest you just want to work hard for this lovely family! And after meals you simply WANT TO take the dishes and wash them because Carol’s cooking is simply incredible!

Anyone who loves to be in nature and wants to enjoy the experience of meeting and connecting with Philippine locals, should visit this farm!

It was a great experience – I learned so much about organic farming.

Thank you David, Carol and special Kyra. I will visit you again for sure soon  :-P

My time was limited so my stay was only a week with David and Carol at their special Happy House organic farm in La Union, northern Philippines and yet it was such a great experience that I took so much from.

They’re a hugely welcoming family and wider community in a beautiful home nested in a beautiful valley on top of the hill overlooking the Ocean. They have a strong grasp of what it really takes to live naturally and organically, are a basket-full of meaningful knowledge and ideas that they love sharing with the guests that come to stay.

Thanks guys, would genuinely love to come back and next time I will stay longer. Lee
