We stayed 2 nights in that wonderful tree house!
The view is great ! You can spend the evening watching yasur fireworks from there!
The site is 50m from the entrance to mt yasur, at the base (so the climb is the shortest possible).
Thomas sent someone to pick us up at Whitegrass airport, 2 hours of scenic drive (including the ash plain).
A good pick up 4wd truck, a cautious and friendly driver, good reggae music all along, 2500 vatu per person, honest deal.
Bed was comfy (remember we are not in a hotel in Vegas but in the jungle, do not imagine the best bed ever).
Mosquito nets over the bed in a good state.
There is "real" toilets (understand the seat and the flush). Really nice.
The shower was not working when we were there so we had to wash the old way with a bucket of water.
However, once they will fix it, the shower hut seemed very well equiped.
Very important, Thomas owns a little shop too, where you can buy plenty of bottled-water (unless you want to try drinking tap water...your choice your health)
Thomas wife cooked wonderful local meals for reasonable price. Obviously you can't choose your meal because we are in the middle of nowhere, but it's very tasty, with crops from the garden and very very generous portions.
Thomas and Robert are very nice and friendly as their families. We enjoyed so much talking with them. Be aware that Thomas does not have internet access everyday (he must go to Lenakel, on the other side of the island), thus you should contact him several days before you arrive, no last minute questions.
