4 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10
Hakuna Matata (meaning no worries) is a private villa catering for up to 10 guests in 4 bedrooms.
A beautiful new property offering the very best in quality finishes and amenties.
Apart from a well equipped modern kitchen there is an entertainment Fare near the pool which has BBQ and Pizza Oven facilities so that you can enjoy Vanuatu sunsets whilst sipping on a glass of your favourite adult beverage or local Tusker beer.
The coastal reach right on your doorstep has excellent kayaking and snorkeling options and the waters are calm and tranquil most of the year.
The approach to the house is cleverly screened by the established tropical gardens and meandering driveway until the house is revealed through old wooden doors into a secluded courtyard. Entry to the house through glass sliding doors provides teasing insights of the magnificent seaside views until all is revealed by through expansive glass sliding screens that slide fully open to link the internal living area to the external patio that runs the full length of the house.
The functional tropical design optimises natural cooling with wide shaded verandahs, vaulted ceilings and highest louvers across the full length of the house. The main house has 3 generously sized identical bedrooms, each with king bed, walk through robe and full en-suite. The two bedrooms at either side of the house have private access to individual open air external showers. These bedrooms enjoy unhindered front sea views through large glass sliding doors. All living and sleeping zones have ceiling fans and the bedrooms also have air conditioning.
All rates are in $AUD.
We have made such great memories. One night we purchased dough from the bakery at Au Bon Mache supermarket and made our own pizzas, and another night we had delicious sausages and kebabs on the BBQ.
Talita and her husband Rhione looked after us very well. Such a lovely couple and they have the cutest baby. We had a tremor one night and Rhione assured us this was quite common after such a warm day. For the kids, it just added to the adventure. My children have experienced this on a previous trip and a tropical cyclone on their first trip!!
Please send our regards to the owners, they have built a beautiful and wonderfully thought out home. The outdoor showers and side access comes to mind, as well as the wonderful ventilation making use of the trade winds cooling the house down in the afternoons. The sliding doors at the front of the house, all opening up bringing the outside inside feel, making it very easy to relax instantly!
Once again Vanuatu has given us a wonderful experience and there is no doubt we will be back again. We are all talking about coming back again next July, I won’t leave booking it to the last minute next time though.
It is 9 degrees here and we are having a very cold and extremely wet winter, but at least now I have the memories of Vanuatu to keep me warm.

Back home after a magical stay at Hakuna Matata. We left very early and so did not get the chance to properly thank Talitha and the boys for looking after us so well. Please pass on our warm wishes and gratitude to them for the fabulous job they did. And also our thanks to the owners for sharing their very special part of Paradise with us. We have donated a few extra pieces of snorkelling equipment to the house for future guests.
Truly marvelous holiday for all our party, both at Hakuna Matata and Sindiso. Everything was in excellent order and the house was magnificent. I reckon that a toasted sandwich maker and a soda-stream would be perfect additions to cover all catering bases!
We will be back one day and will also make sure to highly recommend beautiful Vanuatu, your firm and these houses to our friends and families. And hopefully one day soon there will be direct flights between Port Vila and Melbourne

Hakuna Matata is truly a beautiful place. From the moment we booked with Bryan to the moment we left, our family were well taken care of. Transfers to and from the airport went smoothly, and the stop off at the supermarket was appreciated! The staff on sight were amazing, not only did they care brilliantly for this spectacular property, but were friendly and full of advice and tips for getting around the island. The house itself slept our large family comfortably, and watching the sunset from the back entertaining area every evening was an unforgettable experience. Cannot recommend this place highly enough - we will be back!
