Guests often search for this popular amenity
This historical family plantation home has been recently converted into a homestay. Set in lush tropical gardens and being 'off grid' , we provide a fresh, clean and comfortable private room complimented by other modest amenities.

You will love waking up to sweeping garden views with the odd rooster and hen clucking by your bedroom window. Base yourself here and explore what Alotau has to offer or simply disconnect, read a book, lay in a hammock all day, rest and rejuvenate.

The space
Our home is set in the middle of a former cocoa and copra plantation-trees of which are peppered throughout. Lush tropical gardens and a sprawling green lawn are sights that will calm your soul. This place is well suited to the intrepid traveller, solo or couple or a small family that enjoy blending into the local community. If you're a busy out-of-town local wanting a small town getaway, Alotau is Perfect. We highly recommend visiting the markets and then cooking over the open fire local style. A well stocked kitchen awaits.

If 'disconnecting' and being cocooned by nature is your thing, then this is perfect. Be woken by the early morning rooster's crow, a coffee on the verandah then catch a taxi or the bus into town for your tour or simply read a book and stay home.

This is a great hide-away for writers or even keen foodies wanting to explore our local cuisine.

The house is located 5 minutes drive from the airport and 15 minutes from Alotau Town.

Being off-the-grid and in a semi- rural setting, rainwater, generator/solar is our source of water and electricity.

Where you’ll be

Alotau, Papua New Guinea

The house is approximately 15 minutes drive from the main Alotau town and 3 minutes from the airport. The hosts live in the house and enjoy a semi-rural lifestyle along with the rest of the family that live on the perimeter but will be well our of your way. You're welcome to visit if you like.

The Kaloi river runs adjacent to our property and our neighbours are quite a distance away so your privacy is guaranteed.

On the roadside you can hail down a bus or taxi.

My idea of a great holiday is to get stuck into the local cuisine either by dining out, being invited by locals to share a meal or cook together using their local ingredients and sharing travel stories. I look forward to helping you to make your stay in PNG an enjoyable one.
