Rated 'Top Vacation Rental - Vanuatu - 2017 and 2018' by Tripadvisor. The Reef House is an architecturally designed award winning property located on the ocean shores of Teouma Bay, just fifteen minutes drive from down town Port Vila and 25 mins from the airport. It has amazing fantastic snorkelling and swimming immediately in front of the property along the pristine reef where tropical fish are in abundance.The bay is pristine and sheltered for swimming and perfect for children and adults taking those long refreshing dips with great dug out rockpools and sheltered reef diving less than 10m off the shore. The Reef House has three building elements, cement, timber and stone. Six meter high ceilings and louvers combined with long breezeways cool the house in the hotter months. There are numerous 'chill areas' so plenty of different spots to relax around the tropical grounds or inside the home - even if there are larger groups - whether it be the sunken den by the beach, the beach sundeck and firepit, the loungers under the coconut trees or daybeds along the front of the living areas, there is a spot for everyone.There are hammocks hung between the coconut trees to enjoy the gentle breeze and just enjoy those afternoon siestas. Luxuriously appointed with all modern appliances and fittings you would expect in a home of this class, you will want for nothing during your holidays. There is a separate galley kitchen and prep area for entertaining or cleaning your catch of the day.Cool down with a swim in the fully fenced infinity saltwater pool with toddlers splash pool at the end.The property has free wifi and satellite TV, DVD Library, book library, snorkel equipment and Kayaks. We have eskys and other little items needed to make your holiday complete.There is a large built-in outdoor BBQ and preparation area off the main living area.The property has five large bedrooms, all with ceiling fans and large bifold or sliding timber joinery, two with on- suites, an additional shared bathroom and three outdoor showers to use after a dip in the sea. There is an outdoor couples bath off the master ensuite. This internationally acclaimed house sets the benchmark for architecture in Vanuatu. Designed by Peter Stutchbury, one of Australia's most awarded architects. Perfect for large groups, families, and honeymoons or just that special 5 star tropical holiday. More
