About Patrick Dorp
Yulin is Indonesian, Patrick is French. We are found of diving and we felt in love with this marvelous area not enough known : North Sulawesi !
Patrick Dorp purchased this Villa in 2012
Why Patrick Dorp chose North Sulawesi
We fell in love with this beautiful region of Indonesia during a holiday stay. Chance made us pass a land for sale, we have acquired it the following week ... In front of us lies the Bunaken Marine Park, a paradise for scuba diving.

Spectacular, comfortable, and beautifully maintained property
Our seven-day stay at Villa Manare exceeded our expectations. The house is even more beautiful than the picture online, with a lovely pool and extensive balcony that overlooks the ocean. The pool is deep enough to allow flip turns at one end, so we swam regularly. All the rooms also overlook the well-maintained garden and the pool, and the house easily accommodated 7 adults and a 2-year old. The service was excellent, with Franco and Nover available to respond to our needs, Nifah, the cook willing to vary her delicious menus with our purchases at the local wet market, and Opah there to provide transportation when needed. There is a long stairway down to the beach that made it possible to take leisurely walks at low tide. We also enjoyed the sudden downpours from the broad, comfortable porch, and seeing the sunset and the moon from our balcony. Villa Manare is the perfect place for a relaxing family vacation, and Patrick Dorp is a responsive and accommodating host. We hope to be able to return some time in the not-too-distant future.
It has been a real pleasure to welcome Barbara and her family.They are nice guests. We home to see them again. "If you are happy, we are happy !"
From the moment we walked in and saw a delicious dinner waiting for us to the last breakfast our stay was amazing. The staff went above and beyond. Thank you Nober, Roy, Opa, Day, Hanifa, Yandy, and the two other girls who I can’t remember their names. You were all wonderful! The meals were delicious and the house was thoroughly cleaned everyday. Make sure you ask for the pancakes at breakfast. They were also very helpful in taking us to the local store as well as the store in Manado. The house reef had beautiful coral. Make sure you enter by the big rock to the right of the stairs. It’s a sandier bottom. One of my favorite parts was floating in the infinity pool. We brought rafts. Everything was very relaxing a true five star vacation home.
Patrick was very helpful in promptly answering all the questions I had. We got to meet him as he was staying at the villa down the hill from us. He gave good tips about boat trips to Bunaken and what to do in the area. He even provided me with stomach medicine when I bought the wrong one in the store. ( I didn’t get sick at the house, we were in Jakarta for a week before our villa stay).
The massages at the villa were wonderful too. Thank you Grace and Vicki.
I’m still in denial that our trip is over. If we ever have the chance to go back to Sulawesi we will definitely stay at Villa Manare.
Thank you Shelly, you are a wonderful family and sooooo kind guests. We are proud to be memories makers and we hope to see you again !
Patrick and Team
The greatest vacations ever!
Charming, magical location with romantic view on Manado Bay and yet far away from big city. Spaceful, beautiful, luxurious villa to share with loved ones. Great original indonesian food prepared freshly every day by dedicated and friendly crew. We felt spoiled by the royal treatment we were given by the Villa Manare's crew. They became our new family far from home. Thank You for the unforgetable time! M, G, A, A
Thank you ! You are a great family and lovely guests, you spent your holiday with a great efficiency, part time relax and part time action ! We hope to see you again, many thanks from all the team ! Best regards,
Lovely place, had a great time
Nicely furnished, very comfortable. Nice balance between Indonesian, rustic and luxury. Staff were great, the fridge was full of cold beer and tonic when we arrived which was a nice touch, pool was really lovely, internet was pretty good but would have been helpful if we'd known tin advance there was a daily limit of 1Gb/day, all the recommended tours/diving packages were great (insist on a decent quality van for the local tour though, ), grounds are well maintained, charges for laundry/lunch etc were reasonable. Kids (4 and 6) liked it too. Wouldn't be any good if you want nightlife on your door step but if you want a bit luxury away from it all, it is perfect. All in all a great holiday
Thank you so much, we are happy that you liked your stay ! Best regards,
I could write an essay about how amazing this place is and why you should visit it! We have just returned from a 2 week stay at Villa Manare and already miss it. The pictures do not do justice to the beauty and amazing position of this villa. It is beautifully furnished and the pool is stunning. The team at the villa made us feel so welcome and spoiled! Thank you especially to Opa for the fantastic food and tour of Northern Sulawesi. We are all divers and were blown away by the diving in both Manado bay and Bunaken. The snorkelling directly off the villa's private beach though was superb! We used the kayaks several times and got to explore the area further. Thanks again to Patrick and his family for your hospitality and help (also for your patience for my multiple and frequent questions!!!) . Hopefully will return one day!
Thank you to the wonderful guests you are ! We hope to see you again !
Dream location on the beach if you are lucky you can see dolphins. The villa is beautiful, the staff is friendly and the food is delicious. If you want to relax this is the place to be ! Thank you patrick for the good communication.
Thank you very dears Brecht and Mydear ! We wish you the best :-)
