Valerie was a great host and shared many things about Vanuatu. She even took us the supermarket on the first day and told us how to get home. The outlook was superb. The staff were lovely and accommodating. We were given fresh bananas and a coconut. They met us one night we walked home. The rooms were comfortable. The beds...

I stayed in yhe large self-contained 3 bedroom house with 2 bathrooms, a generous sized living area and great outdoor area overlooking the Erakor lagoon. There is a TV with Australian TV channels and a DVD player in the living area. Tradewinds is a short...

Thank you for your review Jess. It was great to have your group stay with us and I'm pleased that you enjoyed your time here. We are always happy to help out where we can and I'm glad that you were able to sample some of the fruit from our gardens.

I stayed in a studio bungalow for 1 month. This was the best find for value for a safe one person self-contained accommodation close to the hospital (just a few hundred metres walk across the road and through the village) and a convenient and safe walking distance to town. The studio could accommodate up to 2 people. Valerie went out...

I have stayed at Tradewinds on a few occasions and always found the rooms to be clean and comfortable. Location is excellent, far enough removed from the main town to avoid traffic noise, but a short walk or bus ride has you in the bustling heart of Port Vila. Managed by the lovely Valerie, nothing was too much trouble -...

We spent one month in Vanuatu volunteering at the hospital. Tradewinds satisfied all our needs providing us with a self-contained, 4 bedroom 2 bathroom townhouse in close proximity to the hospital (2 mins walk) and town centre (15 mins walk). This was a short-medium term rental, however the majority of rooms are one-bedroom vilas. Valerie the owner, was more than...

My new husband and I spent six days here after being married in Vanuatu- so one could say, our honeymoon! Coming from a resort after five days to stay at Tradewinds, as a cheaper option for our honeymoon after our wedding.

Valerie was lovely and helpful but the 2 bedroom apartment was quite disappointing. Think Aunty Mavis' 1980's beach house. The "couch" was simply a heinous piece of furniture that should never be in ANY form of housing. We stayed in Vanuatu for 2 weeks and stayed at 3 different places. Tradewinds was the last place we stayed, the most expensive...

Thank you for your review. I agree that the resort is looking a little tired and this was, and still is being rectified. I’m sure that you would agree that it would have been inappropriate for repairs and maintenance work to be carried out during the busy January season. As our staff have always been complimented on the cleanliness and...

We recently stayed at Tradewinds and had a great time visiting Vanuatu. Valerie and her staff are only too happy to make recommendations of what to see and do.

We stayed for two separate nights enroute to different islands. Cheap and comfortable but about a 15 minute walk uphill from town. Any local bus will drop you there for only 150 vatu.

We stayed 5 nights in a studio unit based solely on good reviews from tripadvisor members, and we weren't disappointed. The resort is in a beautifully maintained garden setting with each studio well sited for privacy. The same attention to detail continues inside - everything you need to prepare a meal is at hand, the king size beds are very...
