We were fortunate to visit Tanna recently and had a wonderful time with Esso and Rachel (and Daniel who showed us around!). Accomodation is basic but authentic and the meals very nice. The welcome from everyone was fantastic. Due to problems with Air Vanuatu, our itinerary had to change, but Esso and Daniel did everything they could to still show... More

We spent 4 nights with Isso and Racheal and agree with all the positive comments from others who've stayed here. The accommodation is set in beautifully tended gardens on the side of a mountain overlooking both the sea and Mount Yasur in the distance. The cabins are very comfortable and clean. There are only 3 cabins and we enjoyed our... More

Accommodation is quite basic, but that's to be expected. Rachel is a great cook and Esso a good and patient guide (and he seems to know everyone :) and the whole experience is something special. Tanna is not as developed as Efate or Santo, which makes it more genuine. Of course, the Mt. Yasur trip at dusk is a must.... More

My partner Rachel and I stayed with Esso and Rachel for 3 days in July 2014 and had the most amazing experience. Their accommodation are 2 simple huts(Nima), but are located on the most amazing hill over looking the Ocean and Mt. Yasur in the distance. Rachel's cooking was absolutely amazing as was the Big Day out tour. The best... More

I found a place I want to live out the rest of my life and the the first chance I get I'm moving. First Esso brought us to their place, then Rachel shared with us her home and then the people and the island entered our hearts. We spent 6 nights there and the highlights are too many to mention....

Tanna Island; one of the best kept secrets in the world. Just 3 hours from Australia and you literally go back in time hundreds of years when you step onto the tarmac at the airport. Greeted by the friendly Esso and family, they take you up into the area known as middlebush. A couple of bumps and jumps later through... More

We took the trip from Vila to Tanna Island and were totally amazed at the feel of remoteness and adventure. We stayed at the Whitegrass resort which was laid back and very comfortable, with private bungalows and coral reef at the front door. We had arranged to take our tours with Tanna Island Adventures, who were very professionable and knowledgeable.... More

This place is the real deal. If you want to get away from the tourist traps & experience Tanna life,this is the place for you. Rachel & Esso are great hosts & provide you with delicious home cooked meals, we had chicken,rice,curry etc. accommodation is very basic but you get a real local feel. Our bungalow was spacious but had... More

I'm a little protective of this place because they are like family to me. It's a beautiful, remote place and the people and place are beautiful. Some things to note: * Please consider your wastage when you are there and when you are thinking about what to bring there. MINIMIZE PLASTIC and encourage others to do so too (even in... More

My family and I stepped off the small plane at Tanna airport with no idea of what to expect from the next 5 days. Even after being warmly greeted and picked up by Esso, Rachael and Rachael's brother, we were unsure if we had made the right decision. But after rattling around on some crazy 4wd only roads we came... More
