Right on your doorstep at Aore Island! Bet you have never heard of Aore Island and its only a short flight from Australia, to Espiritu Santo and small boat trip over to our island and your self contained unit right on the waterfront.. We are offering very comfortable budget accommodation for those that want to experience all that Aore Island and surrounding Luganville, Espiritu Santo mainland has to offer - but would rather spend more on Activites perhaps..? Aore Island, Espiritu Santo or Santo as the locals call it, offers a dream lifestyle for people who enjoy perfect weather, beautiful beaches and a relaxed and friendly environment. Aore is only a short 5 minute water taxi/boat trip (depends who is driving..) from the town ship of Luganville and the International Airport to the island. Aore Resort is walking distance from us, Bokissa Resort and Ratua Resort are all just a boat rides away giving the best of both worlds, absolute privacy and sophistication at your door step with plenty of variety. Aore Island, Aore (pronounced our-ee) is a large island similar in size to Rarotonga. Aore Island is highly desirable and for very good reason. Located on the Segond Channel you will enjoy one of the best waterfronts in the Pacific. The Segond Channel is open on both ends and the tidal flow keeps it crystal clear for both diving and snorkelling. We have some great activities operators available here on Aore - fishing, sailing, sunset cruises, diving and snorkelling to name a few, so you wont get bored or choose to do nothing and have a lovely rest. We have lovely snorkelling out the front of your unit and we also are a 10 minute easy walk to our local Aore Island Resort for some great meals and entertainment. Murray and I came to retire but that changed once we arrived here. :-) We are also setting up a coffee plantation and Roastery close by - so you will see our coffee trees and how coffee is grown as well if you wish. Price: $90.00 AUD per night (up to 4) includes : • Free Wifi • Water Taxis available • Kayaks • Push Bikes • Coffee :-) We are not really suited to small children and babies. We are high up over the water and could be unsafe. As a parent it could probably be a worry,More

About the neighbourhood
Aore Island has diving and fishing. There are numerous resorts on the island catering for tourists, weddings and baptisms. Aore Island is a haven for divers, being right on the doorstep of world class wreck and reef diving. Several of the wreck dives include the SS President Coolidge, SS Tucker, and the MV Henry Bonneaud. Whether at anchor or trolling along the pristine coastline, anglers from novice to the most experienced enjoy outstanding year-round fishing in Aore and the clear blue waters of Espiritu Santo and its neighbouring islands. Tourism and plantations are Aore Islands main provider of employment and economic revenue
How to get there
If you are flying in, you will catch a taxi to Luganville township ($10) AUD We suggest you do some shopping with the same taxi waiting and then ask him to drop you at Santo Hardware wharf where we will organise a water taxi to get to us/ your accommodation. Remember we have no shops on our island. Water taxis are normally 1000vatu which equates to around AUD 10.00 per trip. Available 24/7 You will contact us before then hopefully.. :-)
