Detailed Information

This home, with many ideas borrowed from Kenyan coastal architecture is unique in the Pacific. All the carved wooden doors originated in Zambia and the wooden shutters for many windows were made in Vanuatu. Whilst dimensions are truly oversized, the veranda is where you will spend most of your time. With inviting day beds, outdoors lounges, and and 8-seater dining table and being only 30 metres from the beach, this truly fits the description of "relaxation".

Each of the three bedrooms with comfortable king-size 4-poster bed, and ensuite and overhead fan has amazing views to the water. A fourth bedroom, also with an ensuite, can sleep 3 extra guests (suited to teenagers). The stainless steel kitchen is very well equipped and the walk-in pantry has a drink fridge, deep freezer and microwave.

A designated fire pit on the beach is a great place to chill and watch the sunsets and the occasional cruise ship leaving the harbour. Two beachside restaurants are within walking distance from the house. A "swimming pool" in the reef, just metres from the shoreline, is great for a dip when the tide is out and great snorkelling is an easy swim out to the edge of the reef when the tide is higher.

Included in the tariff is:

- The friendly, full time gardener Dudley

The capable house cleaner, Yvanna, available two days a week or longer by arrangement.
