Phoebe's Rest House
Ranked #3 of 5 Gizo B&B and Inns
Reviewed 23 July 2014

great views - sit on veranda and watch the ocean change colour at sunrise and sunset. Family run guest house - clean although older style house. When you approach the guest house it looks just like a house and the family are often cooking in the leaf hut kitchen at the front. Don't be put off by this go up and have a look at the rooms and facilities. Copes with 2-5 people easily but there is only one toilet and shower. Like most of Gizo water pressure is low. We moved to Phoebes after a night at a very popular lodge (Re______ ) that didnt have half the view and had no water pressure! Very happy. Bit of a walk up the hill - however you are living in suburban Gizo and you can mix with locals and watch them go about everyday life. Family always there for assistance to eg help fillet a fresh yellow fin tuna (Solomon $ 40 at the markets and simply the best fish i have ever eaten). If there are few people staying a Phoebes its excellent value for money, a house to yourself!

Very close to hospital, 7 minutes to Gizo Hotel, about 13 minutes to markets, 15 minutes to dive shop.

Room Tip: get a room with 2 windows so you get a cross breeze

A friend & I stayed here 12 months ago for a diving holiday. We organised our own travel, and accommodation, not going through a travel agent, and so were able to choose where we were staying. Phoebe's Rest House is a short walk up the hill from the Gizo Hotel, but whereas guests at the Gizo Hotel were paying in excess of $120AUD per night, we payed $16AUD per night.

For our $16AUD per night we got: A room with two single beds, which were made up daily. The room had a fan. We had a shared bathroom, use of shared Kitchen facilities, lounge room with a TV (don't expect a plasma TV with Foxtel though!), and an outdoors deck with table & views to die for. Phoebe's Rest House is often tenanted by visiting Medical Students, who are in Gizo as a part of their overseas training.

Don't expect Western Standards in Gizo. We are in a third-world country, so there is occasional power outages, or lack of water. Phoebe's Rest House is, however, clean and comfortable, and I would certainly stay there again in the same circumstances.
