I would recommend Barrier Beach to anyone wanting a relaxing and peaceful holiday. Calvin and Julie are amazing and make you feel so welcome. The food is absolutely amazing and you never leave hungry. the view is amazing something out of a postcard. Always something to do in the water, snorkelling, paddle boarding and kayaking. My husband was lucky enough...

This place looks like a never ending post card. Every where you look it is picture perfect. The beach and residence is private, the staff are very accommodating, the water based activity equipment was used frequently at no charge. The food was delicious, bed was comfortable, sleeping was made very peaceful at night with no light or noise to be...

We recently spent 6 days at Barrier Beach House and loved our stay. We had Fare 1 which is just steps away from the water and has a lovely view. Our room was plenty big with a large bathroom,and mini bar. All the staff are very nice and welcoming and Julie and Calvin who run the beach house are great!...

The staff and facilities at Barrier Beach House were exceptional! We could not fault our stay whatsoever and we were so sad to leave. There is great snorkelling off the beach directly in front of the premises and you can do so with the awesome full-face snorkels provided. Unfortunately, the turtles and dugongs eluded us! The ocean is a perfect...

We experienced the most wonderful four nights at Barrier Beach House. Lux fares and wonderful food, located right on a spectacular white beach with emerald water. Barrier Beach house is so incredibly picturesque, you may decide there is no reason to venture further! Julie and Calvin were great hosts and provided us with many tips for our stay on Santo....

My stay at the Barrier Beach house didn't start off as i originally planned, but Julie and Calvin made me feel soo welcome and comfortable. My room was lovely and quiet and the gardens around it were full of butterflies. Julie made sure i had a lot of tours to choose from and organised everything for me. I enjoyed adventuring...

This was my second visit to this delightful boutique ‘resort’ and it soon became apparent that I had made the right decision to return.

What an absolute paradise is Barrier Beach on the island of Santo, and where better to stay than the small, but well-appointed Barrier Beach House. It was a real find.

“We stayed in Fare 3, Fare 1 & 2 look to be ideal, we were happy with our room and it's position. You are not there to stay in your room as there is so much snorkelling to do!!!!!”

“We stayed in two garden fares which were secluded by lush gardens. Both fares had plunge pools and outdoor covered decks with lounges to relax and chill out. Our fares were connected via an elevated timber walkway which also meandered to the main dining / lounge area. I personally loved these rooms, however you could also choose one of the two beach fares which are located adjacent to the dining room. All fares could be considered high end accommodation, you will not find better in Vanuatu. I guarantee you will not be disappointed!”
