Staying with Steven, Maryanne and their lovely family is a delight. The accommodation is in a fenced and secure compound away from the main drag. Rooms are basic but well cleaned; it feel like your favourite aunty's 70s holiday house by the sea in Oz. If you ask for food you will get local food that is unbelievable. I'm gluten...

I stayed for 6 nights in June 2016 while diving with Scuba Ventures (highly recommend for diving!). Steven and his family are fantastic hosts, I enjoyed my stay very much! The food was excellent and the room clean and comfortable. Steven and the family do all they can to make you feel at home! I would definitely recommend staying at...

Before arriving in PNG, we have traveled to Vanuatu so one can say we were used to high prices. However PNG is "better" than Vanuatu: the accommodation prices here are more expensive and you get less value for the money. Not a good place for backpacking. We paid 200 Kina (aprox 75 USD) for a double room with twin beds,...

Steven picked us up at the airport and carted us around to and from many destinations in town. He also provided a simple and pleasant breakfast and fresh fruit was set out for us during our stay. He...

I had an early morning flight and the dive company recommended this place. Mary Ann, the proprietor, was extremely lovely and helpful. Surprisingly, Kavieng is not a cheap place to stay; in fact, that's true of all of Papua New Guinea. Venbert Cottages was very much an excellent value for the money, particularly with an early morning flight. They are...

This guesthouse offers excellent value for money. Simple rooms and bed, but the service is excellent and I felt very welcome and at home. The whole family joins in on running the hostel. Breakfast was an egg on toast with baked beans, which was nice. Maybe it doesn't sound amazing, but compared to the other options, it was a perfect...

Options are limited in Kavieng and when it comes to value for money, very few places will do. If you don't need a five star experience, Venbert is a very comfortable and friendly place. Marian helped us out with almost everything to prepare for our trip down the Bulominsky Highway. She arranged awesome diving for us and even drove us...
