Ian was too lovely on my trip over to Vanuatu. I was volunteering at the hospital and therefore gave me a discount on my accommodation. The hospital was within walking distance to the hospital which was fantastic. Ian even went out of his way and got all the medical students together for a BBQ, very thoughtful. It's also a small...

We enjoyed our 7 day holiday in Vanuatu and our stay at Tradewinds which is situated only a short walk away from Port Vila Township within a lovely well kept garden. Our studio bungalow was comfortable, clean, mosquito proof and equipped with everything we needed. The sheltered patio with its pleasant views provided a great space to relax. Lovely Valerie,...

We had great views from the pool. so quiet and relaxing. A short stroll to the local store to buy an egg to cook for breakfast was quite the novelty. The...

I stayed here for a couple days in October as a quick reprieve from island hopping and staying in basic village bungalows. Tradewinds is located on a bluff above the water on the east side of Port Vila, it has several separate private units with full kitchen, bathroom, TV, bed and extra cove. It's walking distance to town but just...

Spent three weeks in this superior bungalow. Valerie ( manager) couldn't have been more supportive and helpful. Rose and Willie housekeeper and gardener/ handyman lovely people and very obliging.

Stayed in one of the cottages for a weeding that i was attending on the island. Room was large and spotlessly clean. Location was excellent as the wedding took place in the venue next door. Also a trip into the town center was only a short trip in a taxi.

I really enjoyed my stay at Tradewinds with my family. The resort is close to town, but not in town. Each unit has a small kitchen. There is a cool ocean breeze. Overall had a wonderful and relaxing stay.

Good location for those doing hospital placements- just a block away (down a slightly quaint dirt road with a very local village feel). A little further from the city where the majority of restaurants and attractions are, but still in walking distance. The owner was always very helpful and went above and beyond to make sure my trip went well-...
