Three Bed­room La­goon­front Villa, Port Vila, Van­u­atu.

This con­tem­po­rary villa sits di­rectly on the stun­ning en­trance of Erakor La­goon with an unim­peded view to the open sea be­yond. Such is the plea­sure of swim­ming and snor­kel­ing in the pris­tine wa­ter at their doorstep that the cur­rent sell­ers, who have owned the prop­erty for the last ten years, never got around to build­ing a swim­ming pool, which of course could be eas­ily added. The flat cleared 1,735m2 site has a sea­wall and small pri­vate beach and a fea­ture banyan tree. The pre­vail­ing south east­erly winds cool the en­tire house, re­sult­ing in the air con­di­tion­ing be­ing rarely used. The main liv­ing area is open plan with high ceil­ings to take ad­van­tage of the light and views and the wellap­pointed bath­rooms are stylish and spa­cious, with dou­ble sinks, baths and show­ers. Some­one who travels on a reg­u­lar ba­sis will find the easy “lock up and leave” roller shut­ter sys­tem sim­ple to op­er­ate and re­as­sur­ing dur­ing their ab­sence and there is also an alarm sys­tem and elec­tric gate. The prop­erty could also be used as a hol­i­day home or short stay rental and there are taxis and buses that pass fre­quently along a main road­way about 200 me­tres away. There is also a Toy­ota RAV 4 with only 20,000 kms on the clock avail­able for pur­chase with the prop­erty. Sev­eral of Port Vila’s lead­ing re­sorts and restau­rants are within easy walk­ing dis­tance of this prop­erty, of­fer­ing a wide choice of lo­ca­tions and din­ing styles. The in­clu­sion of the chat­tels and qual­ity fur­ni­ture in the sale price means that a new buyer need only ar­rive and move in. Sale Price A$ 1,195,000.

for­est or walk around the coast to the spec­tac­u­lar coral reef. There are a num­ber of other beaches to choose from or use the kayaks pro­vided to ex­plore the bay and sur­round­ing is­lands. This self-cater­ing beach house has a fully equipped kitchen, in­clud­ing full size fridge/freezer, stove and mi­crowave, plus gas BBQ and out­side din­ing area on the large cov­ered deck. It of­fers one dou­ble and one twin room, each with en suite shower and slid­ing doors open­ing onto the beach. All rooms have ceil­ing fans and fully screened win­dows and doors. Watch the sun­set from your ham­mock on the deck and the fish jump­ing in the bay or spot a tur­tle cruising past. Spend lazy days swim­ming and sun­bathing on your own pri­vate beach or if you’re feel­ing ac­tive, pad­dle up to nearby Mat­e­vulu Blue Hole or snorkel the reef on the other side of the is­land. Tours to other Santo at­trac­tions like Cham­pagne Beach, Mil­len­nium Cave or Mount Hope Water­fall are eas­ily ar­ranged. Your hosts pro­vide trans­fers to/from the air­port and into town for shop­ping trips or they can do the shop­ping for you so you can make the most of your time in your own trop­i­cal par­adise. Cost to rent the house for 4 peo­ple is A$330 per night, min­i­mum stay 3 nights. Con­tact us for more in­for­ma­tion and avail­abil­ity.
