Detailed Information

It is a one acre secluded waterfront property, located at Paradise Cove, a sheltered coastline near the harbour entrance, just 15 minutes drive from Port Vila. There are 3 luxury residences on the property: a 2 pavillion waterfront villa, waterfront studio and a garden studio.

The fully serviced villa is ocean front and has 2 pavilions. The first one has a spacious king bedroom with walk through robe, ensuite bathroom and outdoor garden shower. The other pavilion is for living with a fully equipped chef's kitchen, lounge, laundry, separate toilet and large loft bedroom. The pavilions are connected by outdoor dining and a verandah.

** Additional beachfront king bed studio can be booked.

The verandah houses a cane daybed, round dining table and chairs and bbq (when required). A sand beach area allows lounging in the sun, relaxing in a hammock or traditional daybed in the shade of huge trees. Being a tidal waterfront, the time to swim comfortably in front of the property is mid to high tide, however there are adjacent channels in the reef which enable a low tide swim. Beautiful Honeymoon Beach is only a 15 minute walk away.

There are 2 kayaks and a stand up paddle board for exploring the picturesque coastline. Rose, our wonderful housekeeper will service the studio and can also introduce you to the world of island food and living. Cooking on the beach to the sound of the laping waves, often backlit by a spectacular sunset with drink in hand is a truly Vanuatu experience. For a comfortable, stress free holiday, vehicle hire is highly recommended as Paradise Cove is not on the regular bus routes. However buses and water taxis can be arranged to and from town.

Room in your suitcase?

Sal's at Lakatoro manage the WFF which provides scholarships for female high school students and a mentoring program. As a result, Sallie & John work with schools in the outer islands, which are desperate for infant school readers, books and stationary. Any help is much appreciated.
