Calvin & Julie are delightful hosts, not too intrusive but helpful and knowledgable about the island and the trips that are available. They also have a good rapport with their local staff leading to a good ambience and efficiency. The room we stayed in was right on the beach in an idyllic setting and listening the the waves and wind...

Thanks for the great review, we love to hear our guests had a great time with us. The island of Santo is a great place to explore and we think we have the best location to do it from. We are glad we lived up to expectations.

What a stunning location, great accommodation, good quality food and friendly welcoming staff. Barrier Beach House is everything you would hope for in a troipical paradise, the beach is great, the snorkelling fantastic and the kayaks are added bonus. Within easy travelling distance from anything you could want to do, this is a great location.

We stayed in a beach front fare for 5 nights and it was everything that I imagined it to be. The room was spacious and clean, the screened shutters meant that we could get cool breezes at night and sleep to the sound of the ocean without the bugs coming into the room.

“We stayed in Fare 3, Fare 1 & 2 look to be ideal, we were happy with our room and it's position. You are not there to stay in your room as there is so much snorkelling to do!!!!!”

“We stayed in two garden fares which were secluded by lush gardens. Both fares had plunge pools and outdoor covered decks with lounges to relax and chill out. Our fares were connected via an elevated timber walkway which also meandered to the main dining / lounge area. I personally loved these rooms, however you could also choose one of the two beach fares which are located adjacent to the dining room. All fares could be considered high end accommodation, you will not find better in Vanuatu. I guarantee you will not be disappointed!”

“If you like real privacy, opt for the garden villa with its plunge pool and extra space. But the villas with a seaview at the front are also great. ”
