A very private romantic bungalow, private and relaxing.
About Property Manager
We share our time between Newcastle NSW and Villa Ducula. We are semi retired professional people who love Vanuatu and love having visitors and showing them around but also understand privacy and time out which people want.
Property Manager purchased this Bungalow in 2016
Why Property Manager chose Mele
Its not a big resort accommodation, it's on its own, the only bungalow on the property where the owner's house is too. It can be as private as you want, or, you have your own gate to the resort next door if you do wish to pop over to jump off the jetty for a beautiful snorkel or grab a light lunch or a beautiful dinner. Alternatively, you can just rustle up a meal in your own kitchen. So it can be whatever you wish it to be.
What makes this Bungalow unique
Close to both airport and town but without the hustle and bustle of Port Vila! After exploring the village and town markets, an "ahhh"place to come home to after a hectic day out. The property is new so its fresh with lovely linen and finishings.
Pool / Spa
anywhere in the garden only
Children not allowed
There is only one king bed so only for 2 people.
No visitors, other than booked in guests, are allowed on to the property without prior approval.
Staining products should be removed before bedtime to avoid permanent staining of linen. A good example is Betadine or iodine based cream!
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund
Paradise in Vanuatu
What are our fond memories of our stay at Villa Ducula
. the vista from our balcony overlooking Mele Bay
. the cooling South Easterly breezes
. the snorkelling on the reef at the doorstep
. an excellent restaurant next door
. an easy trip to Port Vila by bus
. beautiful garden surrounds
. the gentle sounds of the waves breaking over the coral as
you drift off to sleep
. a very welcoming host, where nothing was too much
. the tropical fruits growing on the property were the
highlight of our breakfast
. the obliging Ni Vanuatu gardener on the property who
delighted in coming to our door with fresh coconuts and
. can't think of any negatives, it was a most enjoyable and
relaxing three weeks
This is a very nice property and Lydia is the ultimate hostess.
The resort next door has consistantly good food should you not wish to get some bits from the market and look after yourself.
The big downside for us was that the wind blew straight in on us all day for our eight day stay and were not able to use our lovely deck or the hammocks, loungers etc or enjoy the snorkelling that everyone says is so wonderful there. Of course nobody is to blame for unfortunate weather but it certainly took the shine off an otherwise delightful stay.
Location -Tranquility - Clean - Very Comfortable - Best Host Ever
Lydia`s Bungalow would have to be the best location for snorkelling in Port Villa and surrounding area.
The Bungalow is excellent with everything you could possibly need for a great holiday
Tranquility and nature abounds
Best Hostess ever - I mean the best !
I would have to suggest to anyone who was considering visiting Vanuatu make a stay at Villaducula a must.
The locals are excellent and very friendly and willing to help in any way.
Excellent - Well done Lydia .
Beautiful ocean front bungalow!
A fantastic place to stay. Lydia and Dave are very friendly and helpful. The villa is well designed with en-suite and a small kitchenette. Location is excellent if you enjoy relaxing peace and quiet. It is close to Port Vila (10 minutes) to drive in or catch a bus out the front. I would definitely go back to Villa Ducula!
Villa Ducula is at the start of the lovely Devils Point Road, Wet and Wild just behind the property, Mele Cascades very close by. Just 10 minutes from airport and 15 minutes into Port Vila.
