My wife & kids stayed there recently and it was fantastic. We were welcomed by the host John and he is a cheerful man always ready to help and he is an amazing cook! Really something special. If you want to get away and relax have good food and beverages, this is the place!!!

I couldn't think of a better introduction to Vanuatu. Rooms are beautiful in a lovely garden, a pool on your doorstep and breakfast by the beach. Hosts Jeanette and John are lovely and helpful. John cooks amazing dinners at night served with wine. They will drive you short distances to attractions. It's situated in a good location. Would definitely stay... More

I have stayed at Waves on Bukura a number of times now and have just booked again for Easter. This is easily one of the best and most private locations near Vila. Jeanette and John are wonderful hosts and the staff are professional and friendly. The facilities are perfect, with the rooms absolutely spotless. The kitchen, pools, blue hole and... More

We chose Waves on Bukura as part of our family holiday because we wanted somewhere more affordable and self catering and its certainly timed all our boxes. John and Jeanette need to be applauded for the quality and cleanliness, but also for their helpfulness and friendliness with airport/supermarket pick up/drops and good food and wine. We would easily stay there... More

Jeanette & John have a fabulous piece of paradise situated approximately 15 minutes drive from Port Villa. We were picked up at the airport and driven to the property which is fantastic for those that don't want to hire a vehicle. We stayed in "Turtle Retreat" which was very spacious, great view of the ocean from our balcony and overall... More

We stayed 8 nights at Waves on Bukura and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We stayed in the 'Sea Horse' bungalow which was very spacious and a lovely room. Beach front views were amazing, and it was great to have a pool as well as the ocean to be able to go swimming in. John is an excellent cook and used... More

We have stayed with John & Jeanette for 7 days. Our family enjoyed breakfast,swimming in the pool,fabulous dinners,laundry attended too,transport (20kms from Port Vila),and much more. The lifestyle is truly paradise. Our rooms were clean,tidy with full cooking facilities,fans and even a spa bath. I consider our choice of accommodation was 'spot on'.

Right from the start John and Jeanette made us feel at home. The rooms are an extension of their home but you can be as private as you like as the rooms all have separate entrances and self catering facilities are available. But John loves his cooking and at 2000 vatu for a massive, home cooked two course meal you... More

We stayed at this B&B for five days and it's a perfect place to relax. The owners, John and Jeanette, are friendly and helpful hosts. To avoid repeating all the other reviews I will just summarize the stay as superb and excellent value for the money. We would definitely stay here again if we return to Efate! Ps. The hosts... More
