Good to hear from you Steve and thanks for the advice and information. Just back from Angeles/Subic, had 2 mates from Thailand come and visit, stayed a couple of days up here.
Where you are is most definitely on the radar, as you know we liked where you have chosen very much.
Subic Freeport is very disciplined and quiet in the main but there are rules that come with that. Housing there is expensive, maybe too much so for us, but will look at all options.
Hope you guys are settled back into 'western' life - enjoyed your company. Look forward to your next visit.
Mum passed away on 9th April, going back for memorial service 9th May, Pre just got advice visa approved, 7 days via online, very impressed.

To me these things are two different places. If you want quiet then find a big plot of land in the middle of nowhere and put the house in the middle of it. If you want next to Hospital and shopping then you need to be near a bigger city with lots of neighbors. Good luck.
Possibly right Zep but will keep trying.

Hey Ron, very sorry to hear your Mum passed away, our thoughts are with you and Pre.
Yep, same same, (but different as they say in Thai) first ever Aussie I met in PH and good to hear your thoughts with regards to our chosen destination.
Not really settled back here Ron, looking at my options of retiring and getting out of Oz, still a 12 month undertaking but one that has to be done. Probably won't go back to work so have those 12 months to get our act together, stay tuned.

Where we purchased was a good price, (so far) quiet and easily commutable to services and within a bulls roar of family. As said in a previous submission "time will tell" but believe where we are is mostly westerners and large up market properties, we appear to have secured the worst house in the best street, spend a few bob and it will be in the same category.
Finding the Right place takes time, you have that luxury now as you live there, plenty of time to explore, for us it took over 3 years part time. We are sure you will find what you are looking for. Look forward to catching up for a beer, perhaps Dec/Jan we will be back for immi rubbish.

Cheers, Steve.

Here is the correct link for the video of our street:

Enjoy the other link too! Those are pictures of the Big Sur coastline in California, from my farewell tour in 2012. A friend is thinking about going there so I sent her that link.
Very nice Area, Don. Thanks for the video. Liked the Hwy 1 photos too - know that road (and the bridge) very well, lol.

I wonder how much rentals are in there?

The nice rentals on Hwy 1 are pricey, I'm sure!

My nephew lives in Monterey and confirmed that Hwy 1 is still closed at Gorda and probably will be closed for years. So from the north or south, you have to turn around at Gorda and go back the way you came.

Ha ha, thanks. Yes I know about California real estate. I meant how much are rentals where you are in Subic? It looks really nice..
