For a memorable, off-the-beaten-track adventure, it's hard to beat a night in the Lava View treehouse bungalow and visit to the Mt Yasur volcano. The treehouse is rugged but clean and comfy, the views sensational, hosts Daniel and his family could not be more hospitable, and will do everything they can to ensure you enjoy your stay. The volcano &... More

We stayed at Lava View for two nights and were sorry to leave. Not only is the island stunningly beautiful but so are the people. Our host Daniel was such a delight- very eager to make our stay perfect. The view out of the Tree Top bungalows is amazing, pointing directly at the volcano (like something out of a movie)... More

During our visit in Vanuatu we stayed at 4 different accomodations. We were excited to be staying in the treehouse (6000 vatu per night) and were prepared for a basic stay, as we have trekked in villages before in Asian countries (We are a young couple, aged 28 and 29 and enjoy a bit of adventure). Unfortunately this was too... More

Ok, It's going to be a long comment so that people can make their mind on my experience... I booked a room in the tree house for 3 nights. On my arrival, Robert told me that to go back to the airport, I would have to pay 5000 VT instead of 2500, because I would be alone. So I raised... More

We had a great time in Tanna and loved the bungalows as they are in a little village called Isaka and had a amazing view of the erupting volcano. Robert was very friendly but be aware than any time he goes with you anywhere it is 500 Vatu each which isn't really mentioned until the end. If like me and... More

We were picked up at the airport by the ever helpful and friendly Robert for our fun drive on the back of a pickup truck to the opposite side of the island. There are no shops on the other side of the island so they stopped so you could pick up any supplies you want before leaving the capital. Make... More

The accommodate although basic was passable e.g beds were comfortable, mozzie nets were good, light source was one small bulb, the toilet was 20 or so paces away (it could be flushed once, maybe twice a day), the shower was nearby (the toilet) but with a very weak flow. The food was basic and limited e.g breakfast was jam and... More

If you want to stay within easy striking distance of the Volcano and John Frum village and an authentic experience, then this is the place to stay. We were greeted at the airport by Robert and Senga for a truly remarkable trip across the island bouncing in the back of a 4x4 ute to their small village on a hill... More

Absolutely incredible experience climbing the steep stairway to the bungalow with the most lovely views of the volcano. The rooms are not fancy but functional, have mosquito nets and linen. The tree house is so high up nestled in the banyan tree that the photos do not do it justice. Its quite amazing how the owners managed to build this... More

As the first guests in the tree-house, 41 steps high in a banyan tree, we were consistently overwhelmed by the view from our room. There was a double bed and a twin in the tree house, and without even having to leave the twin bed, there was a picture-perfect view of the volcano. We awoke every morning for sunrise, and... More
