“Dream Getaway”
Reviewed December 1, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We stayed in this amazing place for 5 nights and by the end of our time here we really did not want to leave. Our hosts made us feel so welcome and were so helpful with anything we needed. They showed us around the island, chatted with us but also gave us the space enjoy our stay. They were perfect hosts.
The unit was better than what we would of expected from most hotels here in Vanuatu. It had everything we needed. Getting over to the main land for shopping or exploring was never an issue. Murray and Nanette were able to arrange transport for us. We bought enough food in Luganville for our stay, the kitchen in the unit allowed us to save a bit of money by cooking for ourselves. The near by resort was a short walk away when we felt like treating ourselves.
The snorkeling available to us right at the door stop of the house was better than any we did in other parts of Vanuatu.
Our stay was a perfect mix of adventure and relaxation which is exactly what we wanted. Nanette ended up being a surrogate mother to both of us and the ambition and energy that Murray displays truly is a wonder to watch. Their dog Sandy is probably the happiest dog in the world.
Can not recommend this place enough to anyone looking to travel to Espiritu Santo. We were able to organize a tour of the mainland to see the main attractions and that could all be done in the day if you wanted. Our accommodation was so good we didn't want to travel too far.
It felt like saying good-bye to family by the end of our trip and hopefully we'll be able to return to this incredible place some time in the future :)

This place you have to check out. What a fantastic place Aore Island is with great owners. The unit has everything you want. Large bedroom with balcony and water views, great bathroom , full cooking facilities and meals area. It was very comfortable and Murray and Nanette [the owners] made us feel very welcome while we stayed there for the two weeks. There was always plenty to do if the wanted to stay on the island or just a short trip by boat you can take in the sights of Luganville and surrounding area.
Thank you Murray and Nanette for your hospitality

What a place .. crystal clear water out the front with coral and fish to swim and snorkel.. shopping at the local markets and catching the local water taxi back to the little jetty feeling like a real local resident.
The history around Aore and Espiritu Santo ....
The natural beauty of the islands...
I would recommend this to anyone who wants the true island experience.

The accommodation is great, clean, comfortable and accessible

Do yourself a favor.. stay and say hi to Murray and Nanette

Reviewed October 9, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Very spacious, clean and tidy detached self contained unit, with all the comforts of home,plus cool breezes drifting into your bedroom through the Double Doors that open on to your very own Verandah while you sleep
Swim or snorkel 20 mtrs from your door in crystal clear waters or hike the sandy trails of Aore Island,
You will find there is just not enough time to everything you expect
Murray and Nanette thank you for your hospitality.
