The space
Vanuatu's Premier Luxury Holiday Retreat

The Reef House is located on the ocean shores of Teouma Bay, just fifteen minutes drive from down town Port Vila and 25 mins from the airport.

It is blessed with the most fantastic snorkelling and swimming immediately in front of the property along the pristine reef where tropical fish are in abundance.The bay is sheltered for swimming and perfect for children and adults taking those long refreshing dips with great rockpools and reef diving.

The 540 m2 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 , the beach sundeck and firepit or 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.

Cool down with a swim in the 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 a surf ski. There is a large built-in outdoor BBQ and preparation area off the main living area along with a galley kitchen off the main kitchen 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. In house chef can be booked by arrangement. Daily housekeeping by our two fabulous housegirls included in the rate.
