Things to Do - At the House
The house has 2 kayaks for guests to enjoy kayaking around the lagoon. The water in front of the house and along the shore is always calm with offshore winds making for ideal kayaking conditions. Guests can kayak midway along the lagoon to Sunset Bungalows for a meal or drink or make a longer kayak to the end of the lagoon to Vila Chaumierre and Tropicana and Lagoon Beach Apartments. For the very fit guests they can kayak all the way to the Holiday Inn Resort and even to Le Lagon Resort and Erakor Island Resort!
Stand Up Paddle Boarding
The house has 2 stand up paddle boards (SUP's). The lagoon is absolutely ideal for these boards and guests can paddle anywhere they choose to enjoy the stunning scenery around the lagoon.
The house also has a great little dinghy for guests to use. This is your classic "tinny" with a 9 horse power 2 stroke outboard engine. This tinny can take up to 6 people and is ideal for fishing, cruising around the lagoon and making longer trips into the first lagoon. Fantastic fun and a great way to see the beautiful waterways of Port Vila. Also useful for retrieving tired kayakers and paddle boarders!!
The house has a beautiful tennis court with surface prepared by Rebound Ace Australia. This surface is non slip, quick drying and reduces heat and glare. This court is ideal for the keen tennis player and the net is easily removed to provide a great soccer or cricket playing area - your choice. Racquets and balls are provided.
The lagoon offers some great fishing and this can be done either from the jetty, the kayaks or the dinghy. Guests should bring their own fishing gear for whatever fishing they choose to do. Casting and trolling are excellent fishing methods and fly fishing can also be fun. The most common fish species that inhabit the lagoon are Trevally (juvenile GT's, Bluefin & adult Brassy, Barracuda, Herring, Perch & Mullet. Please see FAQ's section of the website for more information.
The house comes with 4 bikes and the local area offers excellent cycling opportunities. From the front gate guests can ride to the horse riding club and up into the hills behind the club, guests can also ride to the motor bike track at the base of the hill and around the whole lagoon.
Just 1km from the front gate is Club Hippique Horse Riding Park. This club offers horse riding for all levels and is a very popular tourist attraction. Guests can enjoy a variety of riding packages with the popular ride to Lolilima Waterfalls a highlight.
Basketball, skateboarding, Ping Pong & Croquet
The house has a large garage and concreted parking area and a long concrete driveway. The parking area makes for a great basketball area, the garage houses the ping pong table and the driveway is excellent for skateboarding and rip sticking. There is also a large flat lawn on the waterfront which is ideal for croquet, enjoy a nice gin & tonic whilst playing croquet and watching the sun set over the lagoon.

From the moment we were picked up from the airport we knew we were going to have a fantastic time in Vanuatu. The island is gorgeous and The people are so polite and friendly. Now Villa mifala! It was great to have the owner Tony meet and greet us on arrival and a bonus to have Bryan and Valerie pop in to check all was going well. The villa itself is amazing. The setting is perfect having the best sunsets I've seen in a long time. We had everything one could need on a holiday with active teenagers, the tennis court is brilliant, paddle boards and kayaks a bonus. The pool and outdoor area is spacious with superb barbecue and great dining area kept cool by the overhead fans, The villa itself was luxurious. Huge kitchen with all the mod cons and large sitting room great for watching movies. The beds were so comfortable and bathrooms clean and spacious. (Loved the two showers in the second bathroom very unique!). The house was kept clean and tidy by lovely Emily a joy to see every morning, so all in all don't go to mifala as I want to keep it as our secret. 😎
