We enjoyed our stay at Island View Cottages very much. In fact we sent a
review to booking.com a few days ago and found it hard to find anything
that was not up to or exceeding our expectations.
Aklid and Tony cared for us and the property very attentively. We felt
we had established a relationship with them by the end of our time there
but they respected our enjoyment of the peaceful setting and our
privacy. The setting is beautiful as you know and the cottage and
associated outdoor areas to sit and admire the view were very
aesthetically pleasing and allowed our full enjoyment of the beauty.
The activities we were able to do suited us perfectly too; endless beach
combing and bush walking, biking, snorkelling and swimming. It was
wonderful for us to have that all to ourselves for a week. We met quite
a few of the locals, both ni-Vanuatu and expatriate residents and
business operators so feel we gained some understanding of how the
community on the island functions.
All in all we had a fantastic time and have been telling people so ever
We stayed at Viv’s cottage in April 2019 for 6 nights with my partner and my parents.
We had a wonderful time. It was relaxing, quite, we had the entire property to ourselves, beach lounge chairs in the shade, hammocks etc our own private beach where you could get in the water and snorkel for hours as there is a reef right there.
The cottage is lovely, there is windows everywhere to allow fresh air and a breeze to come through the house. All covered with mosquito nets. The kitchen was very well equipped to cook. We got our supplies from the local market on the main island. There is also a fire place which can be used for cooking.
The family that looks after the house are on the property and very accommodating and helpful. Anything we needed they helped with. All transportation was very well organised and we never had to wait for anything.
My mom couldn’t stop saying she was in paradise on earth. We had such an amazing time and can’t wait to go back hopefully sometime soon.
Thanks again Viv for a wonderful stay!
