“Your dreams come true”
Reviewed 15 February 2013

Villa 25 Vanuatu offers the discerning traveller a wonderful option. A wonderfully private 2 bed villa, fully self-contained unit, with the added benefit of doing one's own catering and/or using their communal kitchen and dining facilities. We so appreciated having the on-site manager's (Kris Shepherd) recommendations for bus driver/chef to come on-site/masseuse etc.
This is a beautiful venue for the sophisticated traveller. We suggest you combine this venue with your choice of resorts in the region/s where you want to experience others doing everything for you.
Villa 25 is just amazing.

Beautiful location-far enough out of Vila to be quiet though short drive to shops/restaurants for convenience. Well provisioned kitchen and chef available (nice job Fiona!). Well organised and professionally managed - thanks for all your help Kris.

We stayed at Viila 25 during the first week of December 2012 and were pleasantly surprised by the standard of this Villa. The communication confirming the booking, the pick up from the airport (in the middle of the night) and general management was professional and efficient.

Villa 25 has the most wonderful outlook over the ocean, a stunning pool and facilities. Kris, the manger of the villa is both friendly and helpful. The close proximity of Villa 25 to Port Vila is a bonus as one can easily pop into town to shop or dine out at the many restuarants, and you can escape back to the peace and quiet of Dream Cove on your return!

I can highly recommend Villa 25 to anybody wishing to visit Port Vila, we'll be back soon!

I have taken my young family and parents on quite a few holiday in Vanuatu but Villa 25 is the destination par exellence. Location, design, build, maintenance and thoughtful service combine together in a formula for a fantastic holiday.
Paid the deposit for 2013 already. Can't wait to go back.

Stayed with my wife and 6 year old daughter for 5 nights and had a wondeful time. Beautiful accommodation in a magnificent setting. Kris was friendly and very helpful, the pool was lovely and the beach, though a little rocky was wondeful. If youre looking for a little bit of luxury in a place that isnt overrun with tourists'Villa 25 is a great choice.

Room Tip: The villa closest to the Pool has the best views.

We stayed here for 4 days in total and had a great time.

There's only 3 villas and it's close enough to town, yet far away enough to relax.

Kris is a great help for anything you need - make sure you get a massage (or two) and get Fiona, the private chef in also - works out the same as going to a nice restaurant, but SO much better.....

There's enough things to do if you want - swim, snorkel, tours, or just relax by the pool and enjoy!

We can't wait to return.

This was a wonderful experience.

Kris handled our special requirements thoughtfully and the place was quiet and with wonderful views over the channel a great spot to while away the hours.

We are outdoorsy and the ability to sit in the Nakamal and read (fridge close by for those necessary items) in the shade while still being bright and airy was wonderful.

The snorkelling was acceptable (especially if you haven't been treated to the wonders of the GBR) and you are not is "splash central"

Room: Well, Villa. Plenty of spce for the 2 of us, but would have been fine with 4. No TV (who needs it?) Good sound system and cooking faciltities. What isn't in your own kitchen can be found in the communal area. OK, Gecko poo..yep..but this is the tropics and they make you feel that way. The kitchen benchtops have suffered from large doses of tasty Tanna Coffee but be assured they are spotless as Helen scrubs furiously each day.Heated towel rail!

Facitlities: This is not a resort. It is a serviced Villa complex and it is done perfectly. Rooms cleaned each day, laundry at 1500vatu per basket if required. A superb open air spot and paddleboards and kayaks for use. It was lovely to head out just before sunset and kayak along dream cove with fish jumping in the water in almost total solitude. The communal area is the key.

Dining: It is mostly DIY but we were able to secure Fiona the chef to cook for us on 2 nights. Great food and easy on both the budget and the fact you could crash after dinner without worrying about transport was a big plus. We also at at Elan and Wahoo bar.

Transport: Willy is usually available and while he is slightly more expensive than the norm it is the convenience and reliability you pay for. Still cheaper than a cab ride in Oz fro the distance.

Would I stay there again..yeppppppp!
