“Private Kite Beach Vava'u”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

Kurt and Lynn are phenomenal hosts. The accommodations are cute and clean. We stayed in the traditional style Fale which had a breath taking view and was an experience itself. Don't wait until the last day as we did to enjoy Lynn's cooking - she is an incredible cook. The property is located a little ways from town, however Lynn & Kurt are always more than happy to help to get you to or from town. The taxi is only 20 Pa'anga and the locals will always be more than happy to give you a ride. If you are into Kitesurfing and are an intermediate to advanced rider this is the place to be in Vava'u. You walk 10 steps onto the beach where you can launch your kite. The beach is tight and the trees are close by - watch the tide times. Low tide coral heads are sticking out at some spots however launching and landing is easier. High tide the launching and landing can be a mission but the riding is sick.
All in all a great spot to just relax or kayak, snorkel and if you are into GT fishing, Kurt is the man. We definitely want to come back here.

Thanks Kurt, Lynn & Keith.

Feli & Andrew

We spent 5 nights in the blue house and found it to be very pleasant. The towels and kitchen utensils were very old but it was clean. Kurt and Lyn were very accommodating and we had a few meals cooked by Lyn. It would be lovely if they could offer beer and wine too as there are no shops nearby. It certainly is off the beaten track and very tranquil but we ended up spending a lot on taxi fares going in and out of town.

My partner and I spent a week at Lucky's while diving and whale watching. It was much better than I had hoped for. We stayed in one of the houses with an awesome beach view and an attached shower. It is basic, and thoroughly enjoyable. The attached kitchen and porch made it feel very much a home since we could cook for ourselves and enjoy drinks in the evening with friends.

Kurt and Lynn are very accommodating and helpful. Each afternoon/evening one of the them would stop by and check to make certain that the next day's activities were arranged. They provided drop-off and pickup at the Tongan Beach Resort for diving and whale watching trips. They were always friendly and helpful. The day before our departure, Lynn called RealTonga to inquire about our flights that were delayed. It is really helpful to have someone who knows about the local way of doing things.

Lynn's meals were excellent. We had dinner one night and many breakfasts. The muffins were especially good.

Room Tip: The houses are more comfortable with a kitchen and bathroom. The fales are simple and rustic.

Kurt and Lynn have found paradise in Tonga and are kind enough to share it with travelers. After a few days on the main island it was so nice to settle down for a few days of doing nothing except snorkeling (right off the beach in front of the property), kayaking to nearby islands and swinging in a hammock. We felt right at home in The Blue House- perfect for a couple. We planned ahead and got in a good supply of fresh fruit and goodies to go with the duty free - far better than staying in a resort, with privacy, our own facilities and hosts on hand if we needed them. Tonga's choice of accommodation is limited and we felt that we had found one the the best places on Vava'u.
Swimming with the whales is a must do! Absolutely amazing to see so close up.

Room Tip: The fales are very romantic but we preferred the blue house as it had a small kitchen and bathroom.

We had a fantastically quiet chilled out time at Luckys. The Owners Kurt and Lynn made us feel most welcome. We stayed in the small traditional Fale which was an absolute bargain and perfect for our 2 night stay. The Small Fale has lights, an electrical socket for charging ipads, etc, mosquito nets and is only 10 yards from the beach. It is located in the gardens.

The other 3 huts are right on the beach. Luckys is in a lovely quiet village. Kurt ran us up to a nearby resort for dinner one night and Lynn cooked an amazing homecooked dinner on the other night.

The beach is lovely, with crystal clear water and plenty of fish and critters to see. There's good snorkelling and free use of the 3 single person kayaks. We took them for a paddle around a nearby island and enjoyed just watching the fish and coral through the crystal clear water. Amazing location and value. Thanks again!

Room Tip: The Small Fale is small and located in the gardens so if you do need space then choose one of the ot...

I had stayed three nights in the blue house. Clean and comfortable, with kitchen and shower. Very clear colorful just 10 meters away in front of you. It was so nice to have meal or drink, with beautiful view, with the lovely wave sound, with soft wind! Wonderful relax time! Lynn and Kurt are really nice couple and very helpful. It is a little bit from town center, located in a small village. It was very interesting to talk with Tonga kids when walking around the village. Anyhow just be relax there!

Room Tip: Blue house for two at max, green house for 3 or 4.

I spent two nights at Lucky's and wish I could have stayed longer.
The beach front was absolutely wonderful and kayaks are available to guest free of charge.
Kurt and Lynn definitely make the difference. Lynn's home cooked meals were the best I had on the island. The first night I was there after one of Lynn's fine meals I sat out on the dock with Kurt and was amazed by the starry night sky.
While the small fale is quite small (room for two twin beds only), the outside cooking area is around the corner and clean bathroom facilities are across the yard. The larger cottages have their own facilities.
I had two wonderful days/nights of fun and complete relaxation. Visiting Lucky's is a must if you are headed to Vava'u. Enjoy!
