We are a party of 5; Dad, Mum and 3 Adult Children and have just(reluctantly) returned after spending 12 nights at our own private beach HOME... I say Home, as even though our very accommodating hosts and rightful owners: Torquil & Maryanne shared their Island with our Family, their house was on the opposite side. Far enough away to feel secluded, but as close as a phone call when we needed a short 10 minute lift across the azure water of our private beach to the mainland!
The two roomy bedrooms each have their own bathroom, so no queuing necessary... Designed to capture the sea breeze, both bedrooms and bathrooms had screened louvers which assisted in a constant airflow, without the bugs! Ceiling fans, which were only needed on the hottest evenings could be found in both bedrooms and in the large central Lounge/Dining room. Each bedroom had adequate shelving/hanging wardrobe space with coat hangers supplied. Screened, sliding doors from both bedrooms allowed maximum freedom to the outdoors!
On previous visits to beautiful Espiritu Santo, only 2hrs 35 mins direct flight from Brisbane, we have stayed at resorts, have eaten too much on set meal plans at set meal times. Whilst this has always been enjoyable, Malvanua Island Beach House's well equipted kitchen allowed us to self cater on this holiday. An experience that saw us make a couple of shopping trips to Luganville, guided by Torquil & Maryanne's best shopping spots which allowed us to make good use of the BBQ to cook everything from delicious Santo Eye Fillet steaks to tasty sausages, accompanied by fresh, homemade wholemeal bread (Thank you again, Maryanne) and fresh produce and the sweetest fruit for dessert, purchased at the local market! It felt that we were preparing a no fuss tropical feast at each meal which were enjoyed on our large front deck at the table and benches, made by the talented Torquil and large enough to host us all! Time spent together preparing meals and cleaning up after, hardly felt like a chore, instead it allowed a family bonding. After Tea, sun loungers beckoned on our beach to soak up the serenity and beauty of the evenings, whilst a movie was being watched by others in the Lounge room... So, the house allowed contact or space and having found our own Private NIRVANA, I did consider NOT posting this review, so as we may never have to play the Tourist again!
Also supplied were the Kayaks. The option to exercise and visit Oyster Island or the blue hole, near Oyster Island or Turtle Bay Resort all a short paddle away.
Thank you, again Torquil & Maryanne... We had a most memorable FAMILY holiday and we will be back :)

We stayed on this beautiful private island for two days and wish it could have been for more.

The house is really well designed and will easily cater for either two couples or a family with children. The kitchen is equipped with all you need to cook up a storm, the bedrooms either side of the main living area, both have en suites and are spacious with views across the bay.

There are several 'spaces' within the indoor living area for you to spread out and enjoy and the deck with it's large picnic bench is great spot for watching the sunset. During the day the warm tropical waters only meters away are great for swimming, snorkelling and kayaking.

The owners, Torquil and Maryanne live on the other side of the island and are happy to provide as much or as little assistance as you may need.

We'll definitely be back, but for longer next time!
