Minutes walk to First (Erakor) Lagoon, with an island at the end of your street! Erakor Island resort ferry at end of street, and Le Lagon resort facilities across the road. Large yard with plants and trees, outdoor wood fire bbq and hot stone cooking facilities. Adjoining a friendly local community - experience local neighbourhood life at the mama's food stalls and kava bars on our street. Convenient to downtown, main supermarket, galleries, museum, surf beach by frequent public transport.

Der Wohnraum

The house is designed for tropical climate, with high ceilings and wide windows for good airflow in the living area, and an indoor/outdoor screened dining area. The bedrooms at the rear of the house are designed to be very strong in event of cyclone or earthquake, both common natural hazards here. (We are proud to say our house stood up very well in the serious cyclone Pam and has also been through a few big earthquakes!) It has a good size L-shaped verandah with views over the yard and Le Lagon resort gardens and lagoon glimpses. The house is set at the back of the property on a rise, with an elevated view over Le Lagon resort gardens. It faces east so gets a lovely morning sun and also moon-rise, and cooling tradewinds (South to Southeast) most of the time.
The standard of the interior is modest but comfortable and very functional, the standard and style of a typical beach holiday house in western countries. We have a very large yard (3/4 acre or 2,800m2) that feels a bit rural even though its so close to town. There is another small bungalow on the property that is permanently rented out, but the layout ensures your privacy.
We lost a number of trees and plants in Cyclone Pam and are in the process of replanting our much-loved tropical flower and food gardens.
Next door is a local settlement of people from the island of Buninga. Their grandparents came here over 30 years ago as labourers to build the Le Lagon resort and they settled here, but are now being squeezed by land development. They were hit hard by Pam both in their settlement and on their home island. We have a good relationship with them, and try to assist them in any small way we can to improve their quality of life.
You will hear the sounds of daily local life: children laughing and playing; church choir practicing and roosters crowing. In the evenings our small street down to the lagoon becomes a community space with the neighbourhood mama's selling local snacks from their street stalls, and two local kava bars to relax and pass the time of day.

Zugang für Gäste

Luke's place is in a great location and would easily accommodate a family or larger group. We had a few issues with the Wifi not working and the washing machine not working, but Luke did his best to remedy the problems, which was much appreciated.

Luke and Belinda welcomed us very friendly. They gave us tipps about the local busses (watch out for the red B on the plate!) and places to go. The house was as big as advertised and located 200 m from the lagoon wirh acces to the ferry to Erakor Island. Opposite of the house is the Warwick Resort where you can spend the day using the beautiful pool area and enjoy a great meal!

Luke's place was fantastic! Just two of us stayed for three nights, but it would be a great place for a bigger group. It's very convenient to go grab a bus into town, for just 150vt a person, and is a 2 minute walk down to the jetty to grab the ferry to the erakor island. All around great experience, Luke and Belinda were always contactable and helpful. Would recommend to anyone looking for some comfort and privacy, but that's convenient as well.

Luke and Belindas place had a great atmosphere and was so close to a variety of experiences. It was peaceful despite Erakor Island just a short ferry ride from the base of the road, the Warwick resort opposite and the local village next door. There is a shop in walking distance and easy cheap transport to town. The house is spacious, clean with all amenities and a lovely big verandah. We would definitely go back there!

We had a good stay at Luke's place. The location was really good and Luke was great at responding to any issues- wifi and gas hot water- all resolved very quickly. The place had everything we needed except the washing machine was useless. Everything was a bit tired, could have been a bit cleaner and I think it is time to replace the pillows. It was super cheap which was great :)

For me and my family this place is amazing!!! I would definitely stay here again and again. I'm planning on returning so hopefully it will be available. I walked away with life-long friendships. Everything is as Luke described, actually way better than what we expected. Belinda is the best always attentive and friendly, she treated us like family, by the end of our stay we were sad to leave :( I'm so happy we stayed here it's a beautiful place, a beautiful place, and had everything we needed and more. Thank you both for everything.
