The island gets better & better. The house is a leisurely 25-30min drive from Port Vila. Private beach/reef runs in front of the house far as you can see...just for you. Hear the waves crashing in the bedroom. Great kitchen, groundsman brought fresh lobster & fish. Sunrise&sunsets. Blue Lagoon 3mins away. Paradise!

It is set in beautiful, well kept, private grounds, a stone throw from the beach and the best rock pool we have ever seen! We saw baby turtles hatching on the beach which was just amazing! The villa itself has everything you could want to be totally self-sufficient - very private and comfortable. We enjoyed looking over the ocean and at the stars from the fare. Stunning. Vanuatu is a great holiday destination, beautiful beaches, friendly people, we will be back!
