What a wonderful experience, after my scathing review of this property (owners) on 2nd September 2012, following a stay in May 2012. We stayed 12 nights this trip. Ian the owner is a great host, delivering on what he promises, such as collection from the airport, and he gave us a lift to the airport on checkout too. He is... More

If you've been to Port Vila before you'll probably remember the traffic and horns of the town. This place is probably a 10-15 walk to town and is totally worth it if you want some peace and quiet. I stayed in the bottom apartment right on the lagoon and was greeted by the lapping of the water that put me... More

Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Beautiful views close to town but in a quiet area. Room was clean and spacious and we even had a pool too. I loved sitting on our verandah to enjoy our breakfast. Recommended for families couples or solo travellers.

When making booking offered courtesy bus to pick me up from airport. Under impression this was free transport to the lodge, cost was $20. Oneway. Room basic, problem with ants, access to rooms not great, pebbles, carry your suitcase cant use if has wheels, so travel lightly. Not very welcoming on arrival.

A relaxing stay. The apartment was spacious,clean and with good facilities in a comfortable setting. The surrounding area in quiet but it is easy to get to town either by walking or catching one of the local buses, which are plentiful and cheap. The icing on the cake however is the extra care and assistance provided by the owner and... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at Seachange lodge for about 3/4 of our stay in Port Villa and we should have just stayed the whole time (not that here was anything wrong with the second place). Ian was the best host you could wish for, along with Oli and Justin (his friend staying from Australia). Both of us have travelled... More

Great accomodation options for families, couples or singles. We stayed 3 weeks and tried two of them from up top in the cottage to down right on the waters edge. Both fantastic.

Our family recently stayed at Vatu House for a week. What a great house, set in tropical grounds, right on the tranquil lagoon; it's very roomy, comfortably sleeping up to 10 so our group of 6 adults had more than enough space to spread out (3 toilets, 2 bathrooms!) and the pool table brought out the competitive streak in us...

Our family recently stayed at the Vatu Guest House, just down the road from Seachange & managed by them. While Vatu is a very nice older styled home it is somewhat dated and in need of a makeover. Comfortable enough for our larger family for an extended stay, great location & lovely view over the lagoon. The Pool Table was... More

However glad that you've also enjoyed the use of the pool table :-) that keeps you busy when its raining. Once again thanks for choosing to stay with us, Best Regards; Ian Kerr... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A truly special place for special people, with an ambience you can't buy. Six units tucked away in an exotic tropical garden. It’s like visiting a friend's house instead of being in a commercial resort. From the Waterside Chalet, to the Garden Cottage that is ideal for two couples or a family group, to the single room studios, the care to detail makes Seachange Lodge that very special place. ... more   less
