Holiday Rental House
Our main property at Pangona has now been sold. We have loved owning the property for over a decade, and have enjoyed being immersed in its tropical ambiance. It has always been first and foremost our holiday home and over the years we have always looked forward to our own vacations. However, the need to spend greater amounts of time around increasing business and family commitments has led to us to make the difficult decision to sell. For ourselves at Sanddollar, we will provide updates in the near future....Our main property at Pangona has now been sold.

I'll start off with the few negatives. A rental 4x4 is currently essential to get to and from this property as Cyclone Pam wiped out a critical section of road. It'll take you about 40 minutes to get to PV. However, Sand Dollar is such...More

About the neighbourhood
Sanddollar is located with the idyllic Tuk Tuk Bay, which is encompassed within the north western headland of the much larger Mele Bay which takes in Port Vila and its adjacent area. The Area has good access via Devils Point Road which is a main coastal road leading off from the 'Around Island' ring road around Efate Island. The area around Sanddollar and Pangona Estate has been carefully developed to ensure the predominant rainforest and bush nature has been preserved, with large tropical trees dotting the landscape. However, the dominant aspect of the region is the tropical seaboard, which is ideal for snorkelling, diving, kayaking - and all watersports in general.
