We have been to the Epi Island Guesthouse about 4 times now and we can't wait to book our next trip back! Rob and Alix are the most gracious hosts, providing beautiful home cooked meals that are worthy of restaurant status and great entertainment with all of their amazing stories! The guesthouse itself is stunning, comfortable and a great place... More

More of a homestay than a guest-house, we enjoyed 2 days of wonderful hospitality from Alix and Rob in their amazing home, built by Rob from mostly local materials. Great character; amazing cooking, 'effortlessly rustled up' by Alix using organic produce from their garden; the luxury of a nice bathroom and hot water after cold bucket showers; very entertaining conversations...

Our stay at the Epi Island Guest House was fantastic. Rooms were lovely and the food provided was really good. It was a beautiful area with a nice beach and there were tracks to go on walks nearby. The hosts did a great job and were enormously helpful and very friendly. It was a great atmosphere and I enjoyed the... More

I recently had the chance to stay at Epi Island Guest House. The house itself is a wonderful place to relax and be entertained by the caretaker Ian Rhodes. A wall of books greated me as I entered and iIthought 'this is my sort of place'. Yet the books did not hold me for long as I found a spot... More

What can I say- what a great experience! A scenic flight adventure to Valesdir, a short walk (or maybe a lift in the only vehicle) to Rob and Alix's amazing guest house. Beautiful location, private beach nearby, great meals and fantastic hosts. Make the effort, you'll be glad you did

This is the thrid time I have stayed with Alix and Rob and have enjoyed each visit enormously. The food is great, the rooms comfortable and their library of books and music (records, CDs) is splendid. Even being able to chill on the veranda reading when it is raining is a calming experience. As this was a buisness trip we... More

Epi Island Guesthouse is owned by a couple from Australia who have created a self-sufficient, idyllic retreat. Surrounded by beautiful garden and fronting on its own private bay, the setting could not be any better. On this picturesque little bay is also a small gazebo on stilts -- the perfect place to enjoy a book in seclusion, and listen to... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In the middle of the Coral Sea you will find a private slice of paradise - Epi Guesthouse. Situated on 13 acres of lush tropical gardens, this Pacific Island retreat is on the south western coast of stunning Epi Island, only a half hour flight from Port Vila. Epi Guesthouse is one of Vanuatu's most unique tourism properties leading the way in Eco Tourism having won the Green Award in Vanuatu Tourism Awards two years in a row. Staying at the guesthouse gives travellers a chance to experience an alternative lifestyle first hand with the comforts of solar hot water, hydroelectricity and WiFi access. Epi Guesthouse is unique because it is a family home, with all the comforts of such, and guests very quickly feel more like they are staying with friends. All meals are shared with guests dining alfresco under the wide veranda, where many hours are spent engaged in stimulating and intelligent conversation, discussing and solving the problems of the universe. All while enjoying a refreshing cold drink from the well-stocked bar and feasting on the changing vista of the Coral Sea. People come from all over the world to share their stories and their thoughts and are encouraged to spread the word about their experience of this slice of unspoilt paradise. This is a wonderful opportunity for guests to experience a quiet sojourn on a secluded island. ... more   less
