About this Holiday House

The Boat House. Time is of the essence. Finding it and making it count. The Boat House - a dreamy retreat on a private tropical beach in Vanuatu - is a short circuit escape route from the hurly burly of life. Located just 15 minutes drive from Vanuatu's international airport near Port Villa, The Boat House is a rustic French country-style dwelling ideal for a romantic couple , two couples or a family. Comprising two beautiful bedrooms, an airy open-plan living area, a fully- equipped kitchen and a spacious patio leading down to the beach, The Boat House sits in seclusion at the far end of a secured gated community on the southern side of Port Villa Harbour. Amenities at the house include a small library, gas barbecue, beach bbq, kayaks, 4 sun lounges, beachfront dining area, daybeds, Bose sound system and TV for DVD's only. Fulltime staff for housekeeping services is included. Excellent fresh food markets and shops are located ten minutes drive away in Port Villa. Local taxis are easy to use and inexpensive. A large beachfront deck for dining, sunbaking, relaxing and star gazing leads you to the azure water. Snorkelling off the beach beyond The Boat House is deemed to be some of the best in Port Villa. Kayaks are available to explore nearby Paradise Cove. Latest Boathouse Review We arrived home late yesterday after a great week at the Boat house. The house is just fantastic place and a wonderful location, the snorkelling just off the house is very good, plenty of regenerating coral, fish a plenty, even the odd sea snake which was very cool to see. The write up of the boathouse is understated, when you do get there it is true you just don't want to leave the place, we only went out for dinner once and preferred to have dinner at the house or down on the beach in front of the house. The garden is just right. The staff are all very friendly and a special mention for Willie, he is a true ambassador for the boathouse and Vanuatu. Of all the special places I have stayed at over many years the Boathouse is up at the top with La Sagesse in Grenada in the Caribbean. We are already discussing when we can get back there next winter with our girls this time.

Special Touch of Paradise The Boat House at Dream Cove provided the most perfect holiday. From the outset, owner Nicki answered all questions and allayed any concerns I had about spending a number of days at the property, on my own, before my partner was able to join me. I fell in love with the house and its environs the moment I arrived, and was instantly at home. The house was the glove that fitted perfectly. I delighted in everything it had to offer and wanted for absolutely nothing. Nicki's discerning taste, attention to detail and creative touches are evident throughout. It really was a privilege to be able to spend a short two weeks at this beautiful property. Thank you Nicki, manager Kris, driver Willie, housekeepers Nancy and Elizabeth, and gardener albert for contributing to a magical, never-to-be forgotten holiday. · By Adyssia from Sydney, Australia on 1/1/2014 for a stay in 11/1/2013 at

This place is paradise . . . Normally the pictures don't meet the actuality of a place - in this case they exceeded. What a beautiful spot, perfect beach house (with a french influence) in an amazing location. Every day we walked out our front door and onto 'our' beach, had a couple hours of snorkelling on the amazing reef and in for lunch and an afternoon siesta. The kids were so excited to see 'nemo's'! We had dinner on the beach bbq and one day even had a fresh fish courtesy of a local fishing crew. The people were amazing, you couldn't be more looked after, and Nicki maintains a beautiful property - nothing more could be asked for. We will definitely be back - thank you for sharing your paradise with us Nicki. · By Nicola012014 from Surfers Paradise, Australia on 1/12/2014 for a stay in 12/1/2013 at
What a beautiful paradise! The Boathouse has everything you need and more! This is my pick of places to stay in Vanuatu, its stylish and charming all at the same time. The beach fire is apparently a new addition to this gorgeous spot, there is nothing better than watching the sunset beside this beach fire with friends and family. We had such a wonderful stay...and will be returning!
