I stayed at Tradewinds in November 2013. It is quiet, clean and well positioned among the locals so not isolated by itself although quite close to other resorts if you want to eat out. The units are self contained with Air Con and the swimming pool is clean and lovely. Valerie is a good attentive host and up on all... More

I spent just one night at Tradewinds on a brief stopover before flying to Tanna. Valerie was incredibly helpful, especially as we arrived very late due to a delayed flight. As we sorted our stuff out she called the local restaurant to make sure we could still get dinner and then got the security guard to take us up there.... More

Valerie was a great host and shared many things about Vanuatu. She even took us the supermarket on the first day and told us how to get home. The outlook was superb. The staff were lovely and accommodating. We were given fresh bananas and a coconut. They met us one night we walked home. The rooms were comfortable. The beds... More

I stayed in a studio bungalow for 1 month. This was the best find for value for a safe one person self-contained accommodation close to the hospital (just a few hundred metres walk across the road and through the village) and a convenient and safe walking distance to town. The studio could accommodate up to 2 people. Valerie went out... More

I have stayed at Tradewinds on a few occasions and always found the rooms to be clean and comfortable. Location is excellent, far enough removed from the main town to avoid traffic noise, but a short walk or bus ride has you in the bustling heart of Port Vila. Managed by the lovely Valerie, nothing was too much trouble -... More

We spent one month in Vanuatu volunteering at the hospital. Tradewinds satisfied all our needs providing us with a self-contained, 4 bedroom 2 bathroom townhouse in close proximity to the hospital (2 mins walk) and town centre (15 mins walk). This was a short-medium term rental, however the majority of rooms are one-bedroom vilas. Valerie the owner, was more than... More
