The Good: * Lots of other travellers come here and because you eat both dinner and breakfast at set times in a family style environment, you get to meet others. * Close to the volcano. We walked to the top of the volcano from the bungalows in about 1.25 hours. * Treehouses (2500 vatu each) in the Banyon trees is... More

We contacted Fred by email and when we asked for the price he told us it would be 5,000 VT and that he will pick us up at the airport. But when we arrived, Fred asked us to pay 5,000 VT to the driver (who was from the camping next door). At the time we didn't realized that this amount... More

Fred had picked us up from our accommodation we stayed at the night before and took us back to the tree top lodge. We stayed in the newer section, which was quite nice! We had been told about this place by Janelle at the traveller's Budget Hotel back on the main island. Fred and Nancy were very nice and pleasant-... More

what can i say... This was definitely an experience. This trip took me completely out of my comfort zone and i loved every minute of it. Definitely not for the faint hearted! Fred picked us up and we decided to jump in the ute tray instead of sitting in the vehicle, this was a great experience in itself, it was... More

We stayed in the top treehouse, it's pretty basic but we were only there to see the views of the volcano. I wouldn't stay there if it is overcast or rainy as you can't see it then. It's great to hear the volcano rumble and explode however. The tree branches need to be cut back as this obstructed our view.... More

We arranged to stay at this place through their email. They didn't show up at the airport as arranged. Fortunatley we met the owners of yasur camping ground (and stayed there instead). The next night we gave this place a chance. The tree house is falling apart. Some of the floor boards (just right of the entrance) were missing. Fred... More

Incredible view from the tree house! Perfect for anyone who wishes they had been born into the Swiss Family Robinson : ) Toilet is essentially a hole in the ground and the shower is a bucket of water. Food isn't great. But the location is ideal and the hosts are helpful. Happy to have stayed here.

We had a great time at Tanna treetop lodge in June 2012. We stayed there for only a night but I strongly recommand it given that the place is litteraly beside the volcano. It is about 1 hour and a half from the airport, and we were really happy to stay closer to the volcano instead of doing just the... More

Be very careful before deciding to stay here. Our wallet went missing (after being left in the company's truck) and the owner of this company is renowned amongst the local people as very dodgy. Avoid this place at all means! The large majority of locals on Tanna are lovely and appreciate the importance of looking after their major means of... More

Tanna Tree Top Lodge is an accommodation run by Fred and his sister right at the footsteps of the Yasur volcano. You will find Fred with his 4WD at the airport, where he meets at least one of the two incoming flights if he has a free room. The transfer from the airport to the lodge costs you 2500 -... More
