We stayed four days at Seachange Lodge before flying to Santo and came back for another two nights before flying back to Melbourne. The lodge is located along Erakor lagoon and has a cool sea breeze. The rooms are nice and there is a lovely swimming pool on the property. But the best asset is Ian, the manager. He's a... More

I was part of a group of 7 who stayed at Vatu House (part of Seachange Lodge, a few doors down from the other lodgings) for 2 weeks, and was extremely satisfied with our time there. The location was ideal, being situated on a quieter back street overlooking the lagoon, yet a large supermarket was just a 5 minute walk... More

7 of us recently stayed at the Vatu guest house which is located slightly down the road from Seachange Lodge. We were here on a 2 week placement at the local hospital. Ian (the manager) was kind enough to pick us all up from the airport. The house itself was very spacious with a large living/dining area which was perfect... More

Thanks for the nice comments. Yes the Vatu House is great for large families or groups. We get a lot of Medical Students on placement here, and they also seem to enjoy the spaciousness of the house. Glad you had a good time. More

Comfortable and quiet accommodation on the Erakor lagoon side of Port Vila, not far from shops and a short walk to town centre. Ian was exceedingly helpful, and generous in providing a room upgrade on both occasions I stayed, making it excellent value. The Waterfront Chalet was a great place to relax, literally on the water's edge, and seems ideal... More
