“AWESOME!!! If you want to RELAX. This is the SPOT!!!”

Bukura Beach House was such an AWESOME spot. The photos do not do the place justice and so much better in real life!!! We were there for a week’s stay and if you want to relax then this is the spot!!! Lots of wonderful relaxing areas to kick back on this perfectly landscaped property. Going for a dip in the natural ocean rock pool was nice but you never got really hot as there is always a nice ocean breeze. Robin you are so fortunate to have such great people working for you. Eki & Obed are so pleasant and they take so much pride in your place.

We wanted to be away from the hustle and bustle of the city and this is why we chose Bukura Beach House. We tend to avoid the big resorts as we prefer to be away from lots of people. We rented a car so we could come and go as we pleased. Watch out for the potholes in the road. It was a challenge but became a fun game with us to see if we could dodge them all and survive Devils Point Road...HeHe

This home has everything you would need to do any form of cooking and a great BBQ area. I brought my little ZOOM ZOOM machine to make cocktails but there was a blender there. I left my cocktail glass for the next person who wants to sip on cocktails in a nice tall cocktail glass.

There is lots of DVDs as there are no television channels. This is fine as we do not go away to sit and watch TV. Also there are lots of CDs to listen to and an iPod docking station. There is WIFI but again we do not go away to sit online.

You are close to lots of the tourist attractions. The Summit which is a nice place to have lunch and enjoy the view. Tanna Coffee is the place to have a wonderful cup of coffee and buy cheaper than anywhere else to take home with you to enjoy when the fun filled relaxing holiday is over. Cascade Falls is very close and remember to bring your water shoes for the walking up to the falls. Hideaway Island for a day trip to do some snorkelling and mail yourself a postcard from the Underwater Post Office.

All I can say is if you are in Port Vila this is the spot to stay. Way more reasonable than staying at resorts. There is a great booklet of photos of how this home became what it is today. Robin, I am so envious of what you accomplished building this wonderful home. And your information package you sent us beforehand was so helpful and had all the information that anyone would need.

I have lots of photos of the property but you are very limited to posting as they are large files. If you would like to see more, drop me a line and I will be happy to show you.

Third visit to this fabulous property. Nothing changes each time - beautifully maintained; Obed and Eki fantastic caretakers; ocean pool is fabulous with all it aquatic residents to play with and cannot beat the view. I love it every time and so do my friends. Looking forward to my next visit.
