Luxury beach house on private island offers self catering accommodation in an idyllic tropical setting. Both double rooms open onto your own private sandy beach and have ceiling fans and ensuite shower rooms. Fully fitted kitchen and living area plus large covered deck with BBQ and hammocks all just metres from the water. The house is ideal for a family of four or for two couples - or if there are just two of you who are looking for peace and quiet to spend time together in beautiful surroundings. One double and two single kayaks let you explore the bay and surrounding islands or visit the nearby Matevulu Blue Hole. Swim straight off the beach in front of the house or snorkel the reef around Malvanua and Malvapevu islands. There is a path round the 25 acre island so you can walk through...Luxury beach house on private island offers self catering accommodation in an idyllic tropical setting.

There is a path round the 25 acre island so you can walk through shady rainforest - or at low tide take a wander out onto the reef and check out the rock pools teeming with tiny blue fish, and maybe see a starfish or two. We regularly see turtles swimming around the island - this year we had two Hawksbill and one Green Turtle come ashore and nest here. The house has a TV for DVDs, books, a small selection of games in case of a rainy day and free wifi internet. More

About the neighborhood

Close by are a number of Blue Holes for which Santo is famous - two of which are within kayaking distance of the island.

Things to do while staying on Malvanua include kayaking around the bay or out to Turtle Island for a picnic lunch.
