From the pool to the Pontoon, Mifala has it all. Spacious, clean, well equipped, comfortable modern accommodation, just perfect for our large family to spend a week celebrating a milestone birthday. Whilst the weather wasn't as hot as we would have liked, it didn't stop us from testing out the pool, tinny and various paddle boards and kayaks. There are buses nearby to take you to town, or you can use one of those recommended from a nearby village. Tony was always available before, during and after our stay, ensuring we had everything we required for a great break. The pantry was part stocked with many staples, making it easy to self cater, we gladly added to it on leaving. The book selection in one of the rooms was outstanding and provided many hours of entertainment with some of the content. Shadow (the local dog) was a most welcome visitor to the house, and we always made sure we had something extra on the bbq for him. Emily (the houselady) helped with the chores each day, making the stay just a little less stressful on all. Thanks for a wonderful week, we will certainly return.

“Fabulous home...”

I booked this home (with Sandy in the review below) for a friends 50th birthday and it was the perfect place to celebrate it. We wanted to be away from the resorts with families and honeymooners and not worry if we were a bit loud (as you do after a few cocktails).
The house is 4-5 bedrooms all with ample room, 3 bathrooms a large kitchen, lounge and dining area and 2 sitting areas outside, it was perfect for us. It is very peaceful on the lake that you look out onto and the sunsets are stunning. We used the kayaks, paddle-boards and boat. You are about 10 mins from Port Vila and you can either use the driver or you can catch a local bus, which we did and is very easy, just stand on the road and they stop. There are a couple of restaurants which are not too far from here if you wanted to walk. There is also the large kitchen and BBQ which we didn't actually use, but are there if you need them.
I would also like to mention how helpful Tony (owner) was, when I emailed, I had quick responses and he accommodated a few requests I had without any problems at all.
I can highly recommend this place for a stay for friends or families.

We came here with eight friends (for some 50iths) it was great accomadation, it offers everything travellers could wish for even a house girl (she was lovely). We had a van driver that came and picked us up and took us everywhere (it's like your personal taxi driver (it does cost you like a taxi would) we exchanged numbers and he was very obliging). There is plenty of room here, inside and out, the pool was a bit chilly being July but it still got used everyday! The house comes with a boat, kayaks, paddle board, tennis rackets etc. The only downfall was it is down a very bumpy road !! and the men got over going down it !! We took a hole lot of supplies and donated them to the local school, it seemed the decent thing to do after the cyclone! and felt very rewarding.

We stayed at Mifala during October 2014 for my daughter's wedding. We had family travel from Scotland as well as from Australia. Tony the owner was extremely helpful, response to emails with queries answered promptly. It was a very special occasion and Tony treated us accordingly. The location was beautiful the house was big, roomy and private. The girls would come in every morning and tidy up and see if we required anything. The kitchen was well equipped as the wedding was catered for and the Chef was very impressed by the facilities provided at Mifala. We had full use of the house including a fully functional laundry. The grounds were very tidy and we had the use of a private jetty, small tinny as well as kayaks. We utilised the additional accommodation on the grounds and did get use out of the tennis court. We enjoyed the company of Shadow the resident dog who endeared himself to everyone in our group. Perfect wedding……perfect location. I would recommend Mifala to anyone wishing to have a private self catering holiday.

We enjoyed a relaxing week with our friends, the dinghy was great to explore the lagoon and the guys loved going out to do a bit of fishing and even caught a few. Everything was provided and we especially loved the resident dog "Shadow" who we loved to spoil, he was a good companion. Vanuatu has recovered well from cyclone Pam and the weather was beautiful along with the people. I would recommend this home as a great base for a fantastic holiday.
