Had a quick flick through some old bad reviews on tripadvisor, obviously a management change has taken place in the last couple of years. The new management is fantastic, Ian was wonderful, the bungalow on the lagoon fantastic, garden a delight. Yes it is steep down to the lagoon but if you really can't walk to it maybe you should...

Nestled on Eroka Lagoon, water lapping at your door and the sun peering through the shutters. A stylish and comfortable unit (Too flash to call a hut). Accommodating hosts, an efficient cleaner and friendly and helpful gardeners all teamed together with the sounds of Cong shells bellowing and the laughter of happy kids swimming with pleasant greetings from the locals...

Our family ( 2 adults, 2 little kids) stayed in the waterside chalet in April. The location was great, an easy 5 to 10 minute walk to the center of town, supermarkets etc. The owners were lovely people and were so willing to give suggestions and advice. Our kids loved searching the coral beach when the tide was low and... More

Gorgeous, quiet and, after a month of bungalows, remarkably luxurious. Super clean. Fantastic hospitality. Perfect, absolutely perfect. Rick knows tons and is a generous polyglot soul. It is only fifteen minutes walk to the center of Port Vila. It was perfect for us: luxury to end the trip but not a resort. Discrete. Mellow. Fantastic.

I stayed in the waterside chalet..... fully contained bungalow style chalet with private Jetty.... It was perfect... It's not luxury holidaying, but it is the closest thing you get to it without paying huge dollars... spa overlooking the water, private jetty, comfy bed, kitchenette, really nice bathroom. Incredibly relaxing place to stay. It's a good 20 min walk to port... More

Seachange Lodge might not be in the center of Port Vila's "action" , however its only a short walk away, and the Lagoon side is by far more relaxing. The owners are very nice, they will help you with any questions/bookings if you need help. Decent value, cheaper options exist, very clean, well stocked, a bottle of bubbly included. The... More

Seachange Lodge is on the lagoon side of Vila, about 10-15 minutes walk from the town centre. It enjoys a lovely setting with cottages set along a hillside that slopes down to the water, offering great views down to the lagoon and beyond. There are a couple of larger cottages right by the water but the garden cottages higher up... More

My sons, 26 & 17 years old and I stayed in the Waterview chalet last Christmas for 5 days and we had a fantastic time. Ric and Wendy's hospitality is so welcoming, warm and sincere. The place is very clean and comfortable. It is so peaceful apart from the odd noise that a school of big fish make. It is... More

My husband and I stayed at Seachange Lodge for the first few nights of our honeymoon. We had a lovely time and Rick you were a great host. We stayed at the Waterside Chalet which was beautiful - very private and secluded and just what we were after. The use of the motorised dingy was fantastic. We loved our stay... More

The Seachange Lodge is one of the nicest places we have stayed at, especially the Waterside Chalet. Romance, tranquility and pure comfort! The spa bath is amazing, even the candles are there, ready for use. In the beginning we also stayed a couple of nights in the garden cottage and loved it as well. The rooms are very clean and...
