My partner and I have just returned from a trip to Vanuatu and spent our days in Port Vila at the Vila Chaumieres. It exceeded expectation, even after reading the good reviews. The owners Richard and Ursula were extremely friendly and did anything to make our stay as pleasant as possible. The garden bungalows were big and spacious and surrounded...

We stayed at Villa Chaumieres for three nights and had a relaxing and enjoyable time. Nothing was a problem for Ursula and Richard, who were always close at hand to ensure our stay was going to plan and we were being looked after. Our garden villa was tidy and cool, although we appreciated having the air conditioning on the warmer...

Although not on one the beaches and a little way out of town, this small resort has charm and is well worth the visit. It sits on a very pretty lagoon where while having breakfast you can watch the locals fish and paddle around in canoes. Service and food is excellent, everything happens with a smile and the owners are...

We stayed here for 10 days and it was so lovely. Our room was above the restaurant and facing the lagoon. We witnessed the most spectacular sunsets from there. Another bonus was that it was for adults only, so no screaming children. The owners from Australia were so helpful and friendly and their staff were the same. They couldn't do...

Vila Chaumieres is located about 4 kilometres outside the town of Port Vila, idyllically set on the stretch of water between the main and second lagoons. It is so peaceful and calm, you totally relax as soon as you walk into your room, we stayed in Room 5 which has by far the best views out over the water. The...

The best room is number 5 which is the lagoon view room on top of reception. We stayed in number 6 which is the room next door with view of lagoon but not as panoramic as room 5 but still a good view. The owners were away and unfortunately the wifi played up during our stay despite the site manager...

Lovely property outside Port Vila with just a few bungalows and an excellent restaurant. The hosts Richard and Ursula are really helpful and will give you all kinds of suggestions to get the most from your stay in the island. The bungalows are located amid a lush tropical garden and are quiet and private. Do not expect luxury here, there...

Just spent 3 nights in a garden bungalow. This is a small place with only 4 of these bungalows and a couple over looking the lagoon. The bungalows are set in a lovely floral and tropical garden, and the fabulous restaurant (will write a separate review on that) sits out overlooking the lagoon. The rooms are very clean, tidy, and...
