What a great place to stay and use as a base for part of our Vanuatu holiday! We had a lovely spacious two bedroom unit with plenty of room. The apartments are on the highway/ main road so there is traffic noise but you soon got used to it. On the plus side it was a very handy location with... More

It has nice views, safe and friendly management. The small garden is beautiful with cozy swimming pool and the apartments are light and airy and well appointed with everything you need. Transportation is always available directly in front of the residence.

Sandalwood has become 'home away from home' for us as we make several visits each year. It's so convenient, easy walking distance to town (if you enjoy walking) and buses right outside the gate. There are several small shops nearby if you need basics in a hurry. Staff are all friendly, delightful and dedicated - nothing is any trouble at... More

My first introduction to Sandalwood Apartments was in 2008 while looking for a modern, convenient, well priced and fuss free accomodation solution. I was so impressed with the level of accomodation and services provided and the location of the complex that I soon became a long term resident and stayed on at Sandalwood for just over 2 years! I have... More

My wife, Yvonne, and I have been long term residents at Sandalwood. We came in September 2011 and will be going home to Australia in February 2012. Sandalwood has been pretty much perfect for us. The accommodation is excellent and very safe, the complex's gardens and swimming pool a joy. Perhaps most important, the husband and wife managers, Jude and... More

I stayed here for 3 months when I first moved to Vanuatu. The location and quality of the apartment was great- close enough to town and the supermarkets etc to be convenient, but it still felt peaceful. The staff were always very helpful. I'd definitely recommend it.

I stayed here for 2 weeks for work, accompanied by my teenage daughter. The appartment had everything we needed and the helpful staff provided anything extra. The location is great, and we felt very safe. The two bedrooms are on opposite ends of the appartment so my getting up early for work did not disturb the teenager! Good airconditioner, and... More

This was my second Vanuatu stay so I knew the local standards. Good quiet location, even if a little far from center (on Vila standard), I went there in 2009 for 4 months so I maybe a little outdated on services, price was fine for local standard, management helpful, it is well self catered, but no onsite catering service if...

Coming to live and work in Vanuatu, I needed a place close to my work and with everything supplied. Sandalwood was perfect for me. All I had to do was unpack my suitcase. Everything I could think of was supplied and all utility costs were included in the rent. They even have a dvd library to chose from as well... More

I stayed at Sandalwood apartments for around six months. Excellent location, quiet environment, very helpful managers. Sandalwood apartments is a perfect stay for both long and short term stay, easy access to public transport, resorts, surf beaches, and 5 min from town. Highly reccommended.
