About this listing
Our 3 bedroom secluded island Eco retreat is stunning. No cars, accessed only by boat. Moso Island is untouched with so much to offer, surrounded by turquoise waters and an abundance of marine life.
Take a look at a short video taken by one of our guests.
Secluded and private suitable for up to 6 adults
We have a Paddle board, 2 outrigger canoes, fishing rods, pristine private beaches and access to many local boats to take you where ever you like.
Interaction with guests
A gardener/maintenance guy will drop in every few days to check on everything, and we have a security guard on from 5pm - 6am. He will check on the generator and secure the premises.
For a small fee of VT3000 per day (8 hours) we can organise a house girl, to help prepare meals, wash up, make beds, look after the children and do the washing.
We also live 5 minutes walk away on the other side of the bay.
5 minutes from the mainland by boat. You can do absolutely nothing, or you can hike, snorkel, fish, island hop or take a trip into port Vila. We also have a bistro, bar and small general store at our resort, The Moso ( a five minute walk away).There are also several Restaurants and Bars in Havannah Harbour which are a short boat ride away.
We are located 30 minutes from Port Vila by road and then 5 minutes across to Moso Island by boat. You can hire a car and park at the landing on the mainland (500vt per day for parking) or we can organise a bus (at your cost) to collect you from town/airport and when or if you decide to leave the island we can organise a tour or bus to collect you.
Other things to note
Our Eco home is run on solar. We have a generator if needed, we do however ask that guests remember that water and power all rely on solar energy and to be mindful of their usage. You will not be without power under any circumstances, but we encourage minimising water usage and use of electrical devices, especially after sunset.
You will be supplied with 10 litres of fuel per week, this is sufficient to run the house. If you are night owls and use more fuel it can be purchased from us easily for VT200/ltr.
Tap water is potable, if you wish to consume bottled water, it is available in 20lt, 1.5lt or 600ml bottles from the resort.
Trips to and from the airport or town, range from VT6000 and VT8000 depending on how many stops you wish to make and how long it takes.
Boat trips across to the mainland are VT2000 return, and range from VT5000 - VT12,000 for fishing, snorkeling or just cruising around.
All of these trips should be organised through us, to ensure you are being charged the correct amount and that you have a reliable driver or captain. Your arrival and departure boat trips are VT2000 return.
We are able to purchase provisions for guests if this is required. Just ask, and we will get you to email a shopping list. Taking into account any weekend arrivals that bottle shops and the fruit and vegetable markets are closed from 11:30 Saturday until Monday morning.
We do have beer, wine and mixers available at the resort (5 minutes away) if you require them.
The house will have basics in the kitchen, oil, spreads, salt, pepper, ice, and anything unopened from previous guests. Please feel free to use these, if you happen to finish off one of the basics please replace. You will have a starting supply of toilet paper, washing up detergent, mozzie coils, insect spray, but it would be a good idea to include these on your list.
Please respect our home, contents and the local environment. We encourage guests to bring as few things as possible that are packaged. We don't have recycling in Vanuatu which makes disposal difficult. We supply reusable shopping bags for your shopping and love to support local villages by purchasing their produce.
Love food, wine, travel, design and the beach. My partner and I owned a patisserie/cafe in Erskineville (Sydney) for 10 years and have now relocated to Moso Island, Vanuatu where we are buiding a boutique resort.
We love to stay in lovely places when we travel and have opened our own homes up for other people that like the same.
