We had a great time staying at thomas and janet's place. They welcomed us warmly and integrated us in their family. You can learn how to weave a bag out of coconutleave or to cook local food. The treehouse was exciting, basic but very nice. They are now rebuilding the groundbungalows, that were blown off by pam. Here and there... More

Staying at Yasur View Lodge and visiting Mt Yasur was one of the most memorable experiences of my life. Sitting in my treehouse listening to the bangs and thumps of Mt Yasur was incredible and a powerful and humbling reminder of the overwhelming power of the earth. Thomas and his family also made great hosts and the service and food... More

We were in Vanuatu for a week but only stayed two nights at Yasur Camping Ground - we wish we had made more time to spend with Thomas and his wonderful family! If you're looking to get away from the resorts and find a genuine Vanuatu experience then this is the place to stay. When we stayed with Thomas he... More

The Yasur View Lodge and Tree House ( yasurviewlodge.com ) is the perfect place to stay for anyone with even a slight spirit of adventure!! The accommodation is family run, set in a lovely tropical garden, with views of Yasur volcano in the distance. The treehouses are a fun alternative for those who are comfortable climbing up a ladder... and... More

The people are very helpful and the place is nice from tree top house and bungalows. The place is very nature friendly and if you are looking for nature tripping, hiking and visiting volcano whish is the best place and main attraction, then this place is best for you. Living local and experience local culture of Tanna. Thanks to Robert... More

This place is amazing and the hosts are the most genuine and lovely people you will meet! PLEASE if you are any sort of western snob re-evaluate your priorities before going here and writing anything but an awesome review. You are in the middle of nowhere with a traditional family. I rate it as one of the best experiences I've... More

We stayed for 3 nights in August 2014 and got picked up from the airport punctually although we had booked months in advance and hadn´t reconfirmed our stay. We enjoyed the perfect location right at the entrance of the volcano, from where it´s a 40 minute walk to the crater. You don´t need a guide to go up as there... More

We stayed for one night in the Yasur Camping Ground (which I believe is now named Yasur Lodge) at the highest rised tree house they have. It was just amazing! From the tree house you have such a great view of the volcano and at night form the tree house you can see sort of a red glow over the... More

I confirmed the treehouse booking with Thomas via email 3 weeks before arrival, after which I did not contact them anymore. Upon arrival at Tanna, we were being picked up punctually on a 4wd truck. We pass by the market where he bought groceries for us. This is also where Thomas got to use the internet. There is no internet... More

We stayed for two nights. Our main aim was to see the volcano and we were very lucky to go up and see it on both nights we stayed there. Not only that but there were great views of the volcano from the restaurant (eating with the volcano framed by the windows and door was pretty amazing) as well as... More
