Rosemary MacGregor, owner of the magnificent Mango Tree Villas & Spa in Ojochal, passed away on February 13th. We share the sadness of her loss with all who loved her. (You can contact her daughter Kerry @ for any further information).

Thought it would be interesting to share this website, now offering the Boracayan propert. Neighbor to many here, this was the ill fated home & Nature Reserve of John & Ann Bender for available now for anyone with $25 million to spare and a deep love for adventure & nature. Here is the 48 Hours, CBS version of what happened from 2014. Check our site here, done before her acquittal in her third murder trial. A few months ago, there was talk that the government wanted to go for a fourth trial but have seen nothing on that since, and I understand Ann is recuperating in the United States now. We wish her health & peace.
