Experiencing the real Vanuatu. As a solo traveler, this was the perfect place. I would also recommend for couples and friends as well ! By staying at the guest house, you are able to visit Efate and Port Vila's surrounding seeing as you have easy access to buses, and you also get to learn A LOT about Vanuatu's culture, history,...

I had stayed at Jabsina in 2014 and decided that it was even more important to ni Vanuatu to assist their economy to stay locally on my short 2015 visit. The accommodation was clean and tidy and no others staying there, so I had the place to myself - there are 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, so would be plenty... More

Very good location, it's close to the city but still in the village and the nature. Nice clean rooms and a well equipped kitchen. Nice garden with fruit trees. Wonderful family with the most adorable children! They are very friendly and if the guest prefer it, they are willing to socialize, they even invited us for local dinner several times.... More

I have had several visits to Vanuatu, mainly on family holidays - this visit was for business, - a female travelling alone. I wanted to stay somewhere that was safe & secure but inexpensive and preferably one that would support ni-Vanuatu. I had heard of Jabsina, through ni-Vanuatu horticulture workers in NZ. I have stayed in numerous ni-Vanuatu bungalows all... More

For us, this was an outstanding holiday which we will remember forever. We wanted to experience life in Vanuatu as authentically as possible and our stay at Jabsina Guesthouse (in Ian and Rebecca's house) surpassed our expectations. Having said that, we did not expect luxury, technology or high end Western living standards. If we were hoping for that kind of... More

It is a very basic little house, there is no running hot water and the kitchen is far from 'House and Garden' standard. But or $20 a night it... More

My husband and I stayed here with our 1 yo daughter for 4 nights over the Christmas holidays. As joannekAustralia wrote, the guesthouse is quite basic, but the locals are very friendly and you get to see a side of Vanuatu life you would never experience staying in a resort. Also really good for surfing. Alick the owner was very... More
