We were a group of 4 adults (2 couples) staying for one week, Kris the manager couldn't have been more helpful. The place is beautiful and facilities first class. All the staff were friendly and the driver extremely reliable. We couldn't recommend it enough. We saw a few other options around town and nothing compares to this in terms of... More

Villa 25 is Perfect!. The views are spectacular and you find yourself drawn to sit in the shared Lowana to soak up the sun and sea and read a good book. Kris was an amazing host and it is the little things that make all the difference; providing us with a mobile phone to ring Willie, our driver, to take... More

This Villa was very Quiet & Private which is great when you want to get away from people & crowds. The layout of the Villa was perfect & the Outdoor Entertaining area was Excellent. I would recommend this place to anyone that just needs to unwind & relax without any distractions.

We stayed for nine nights and loved every minute. Kris was a fantastic host where nothing was too much trouble - even arranging a doctor's appointment. Willie and Able were excellent drivers and we loved having them programmed in to the cell phone we were given on arrival. Snorkelling was the best we have seen right off the beach and... More

Great views of the sea and superb sunsets, accommodation and facilities. No beach and tiles when wet hazardous for kids. Close to town so easy access to shops etc. - Nice long walk into town. Friendly and helpful management and staff.

We stayed for 5 nights and it was really idyllic. The villa was lovely-Kris and the staff were excellent. Snorkeling was easy and so fun from the beach just in front-lots of fish! Great for kayaking too.Enjoyed a delicious meal on our first night-cooked for us by Fiona in the Lowana. Would totally recommend a stay at Villa 25 and... More

Staying at Villa 25 was the highlight of our stay in Vanuatu. Not enough can be written about how wonderful our host, Kris was - genuinely helpful and knowledgeable. It's the little things that make such a big difference; like giving us a cell phone for our stay so we could contact her and their driver Willie at any time.... More

What an amazing holiday. Villa 25 is simply beautiful. It is exactly like the photographs. The rooms are very comfortable and clean and to wake up in the morning and look straight out over the pool and to the bay, seeing the dolphins in the water, is a slice of paradise. The colour and the clarity of the water is... More

An enjoyable stay with friends in one of the 3 well appointed Villas overlooking the water. Nice garden and pool area overlooking the water. Very helpful and friendly manager arranged driver transport, excursion, dinner reservations, a chef to cook for us and a masseuse for added therapy. Nice and relaxing. Beautiful setting with garden, pool and big outdoor kitchen and... More

Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review – it was great having you all to stay. Just thought I should clarify a few points you have raised: - Most people have found the beauty of being in the gated community of Dream Cove is that you don’t have to drive far to get to town. The... More
