She is the best hostess we have ever encountered. The property is absolutely amazing. The rooms are clean, comfortable and just lovely. The position is fabulous, right...

Amazing views with very beautiful people. A little out of town but don't let that deter you. This is a must stay home away from home. No stress, no problems. Hear the waves rolling in & out each day. Or a swim in the pool. Walk for miles, all in peace & tranquility. Pick up & drop off at airport....

Waves on Bukara is a magical place. John and Janet are consummate hosts who look after every need. John picked us up at an ungodly hour from the airport and cooked beautiful dishes (vegetarian for us) and lovely breakfasts by the ocean. The staff are lovely too!! And it would not be the same without Sam, Zephyr, Ralph and maxie....

My husband and I stayed for one night in the Nautilus room on our way to Tanna. I had read the excellent reviews from others who had also stayed at Waves so thought it would be a good place to start our holiday. The owners are just the most beautiful people who take you into their amazing home and treat...

We recently returned from a 4 night stay at Waves on Bukura, we enjoyed our stay. John and Jeanette are wonderful hosts, and offer such a lovely place to stay while visiting Vanuatu. We truly recommend enjoying a few sumptuous dinners cooked by John whose French cuisine is superb, and his 'creme brulee' was the best we have ever had!...

Had an amazing time in Port Vila, which was greatly due to the warm hospitality of our hosts, John and Jeanette. They could not have been more helpful and we very much enjoyed the friendly conversation and helpfulness of this lovely couple. Our accommodation was very clean and comfortable.

We had a wonderful time at this lovely property! Our apartment (Nautilus) was beautiful, spacious, had much-appreciated air conditioning and a beautiful outlook over the water! And a huge in-room spa! John was extremely friendly and cheerfully picked us up from the airport at a very unsocialable hour. Jeanette dropped us back at the airport the next day and was...

Quiet, out of the way, small, family feel place. We only had 2 nights here, and didnt get in till almost midnight, so certainly couldnt maximise our stay there. The little open air breakfast hut on the sand was a bit of a highlight for me, awesome way to start the day. The hosts John and Jeanette were lovely and...
