“A magical experience at Villa Anouska”
This wasn't the first time we have stayed at Villa Anouska, and we hope it won't be the last. Just arriving at Port Vila, Vanuatu, evokes the essence of the South Pacific - the silky air and the rich smells are instant triggers for a change of pace. But it's when you arrive at the gates of the Villa that the dream really comes true. To say the place is magical may be a cliché, but I can't think of a better way to sum it up. It's not bright lights and constant action - it's sparkling mornings and balmy nights and the murmur of the Pacific breakers always in your ear. Books, relaxation, a glass of wine ... the house and the hospitality are elegant, simple, and oh so stylish. We can't recommend the holiday highly enough.
“Perfect family holiday”
What a gorgeous home in a gorgeous location - perfect for entertaining or simply lazing on one of the many daybeds. We spent the weekend at Villa Anouska after staying at a resort in Port Vila and it was a welcome respite. Each of the four king bedrooms has an ensuite, so this is the perfect place for couples sharing, or a large family. The huge living area is comfortable and welcoming - even with kids you feel you can completely relax and chill out. The white sand beach and shallow natural pool are great for kids, or to keep a closer eye on them, the in-ground pool right in front of the open plan living room is simply stunning. This house is decked out for events too - catering for about 50 people with everything you could possibly need for a wedding or birthday. There really is no downside to Villa Anouska - you're only 20 minutes from town should you need anything, there are two restaurants within beach-walking distance and the house has onsite caretakers to clean up after you! Just total bliss really!
“Wonderful relaxing stay”
We loved staying at this beautiful villa. The layout is such that even though we were 8 people, we could all have our own space if needed, even on the rainy days. We had a few days of rain and the rest was sunny but in any weather the place is just so relaxing with plenty of space. Unlike some places, the kitchen is also fully equipped which makes cooking in so much easier. One of our group was also on a manual wheelchair and apart from the odd very small step into a couple of rooms, access was amazing.
“The best accommodation on Efate”
We had stayed in several large resorts during a more than 20-year love affair with Vanuatu. While they were all lovely, there was nothing to match Villa Anouska, where we have now stayed a number of times. It offers all the luxury and facilities of the big resorts and, while the pictures tell much of the story, they can't convey the special feeling of being in your own private paradise. The on-site staff, Liman and Bernard, are wonderful and they'll help make your stay hassle-free. It can be a bit hard to drag yourself away from Villa Anouska but we usually make at least one snorkelling trip to both Turtle Bay and Eton Beach, which is a bit further afield but less developed. Make sure to check that the tide's in before you set out! We also love shopping at the waterfront market in Port Vila for fabulous, inexpensive produce, and in the supermarkets for superb organic beef. We can't wait to go back!
“Relaxing, peaceful and beautiful.”
We so loved our first holiday at Villa Anouska that we have returned four times with friends and family. From the moment we arrive at the front door and look through the open plan house to the swimming pool and beyond to the ocean, we know that we are in for another special time here. The Villa is very tastefully and comfortably furnished, with numerous seating areas inside and out, so there is no feeling of being on top of each other. All the doors are folding shuttered and the raked white ceilings with fans give an amazing sense of tropical luxury. The beds are huge super king size with crispy sheets and each separate air conditioned guest suite allows space, privacy and pure comfort. Two of the suites have an interconnecting door which really suits our family with their children. There are lots of books on the book shelves and games to play together with the family, not to mention the entertainment of crab and coconut life on the beach, so nobody gets bored. The swimming pool is well positioned to watch the younger members of our family and the private sandy beach and ocean pool is just a few steps away. Sometimes we see the local Vanuatu people fishing off the reef and if we are lucky, we might score a fresh lobster or two. Occasionally we take advantage of a couple of the local restaurants a short drive along the way, but so love the ambiance of Villa Anouska that by sunset and cocktail time on the beach, it is hard to tear ourselves away. Great cooking facilities, a large fridge/freezer and a big BBQ make it all so easy to self cater. We always hire a 4 WD because some of the roads in Vanuatu are unsealed (part of the adventure). Being mobile means we can drive into the town of Port Vila (20 minutes) for supermarket, fantastic organic beef and the local (again, organic) fruit and vege markets where we buy heaps of fresh produce for very little. The French wines are easy drinking and inexpensive. The house and garden staff are a lovely family who we have come to know and they are always very welcoming when we return to Villa Anouska. We highly recommend Villa Anouska for a fabulous holiday in Vanuatu.
“Even better than the photo's...tropical paradise”
I had the joy of staying at Vila anouska in March 2014 with a group of friends. The house itself is stunning, high ceilings, beautifully styled and meticulously maintained by the charming housekeeper Lemin. From every room you could hear the sound of the waves and look out to see the garden and private beach and I found that incredibly relaxing. Most of the week was spent swimming in the pool and in the rock pool in the private beach and taking walks and runs along the surrounding beaches. An unexpected bonus was the extremely well equipped kitchen and we made some fantastic meals using produce from the Port Vila markets and some of Lemin's home grown vegetables. We did venture out on a couple of days to explore a bit more of the island and to do food shopping but the majority of the time we all opted to stay at Villa anouska during the day to relax and enjoy the stunning property. There was also plenty of room for the six of us to sit together or have our own space at the villa, with big couches and chill-out areas all over the property, including a shaded bed-swing right on the beach! We ate out a few evenings and a highlight was Ripples restaurant, run by an australian couple. It's a gorgeous open air restaurant perched right on the water front amidst tropical gardens and just a ten minute walk from the Vila. Vila anouska is one of those properties that far exceeded the photos and my expectations. It was an ideal choice for our group of friends who needed a totally relaxing break in a stunning location. It turned out to be the highlight of the whole trip to Vanuatu and I couldn't imagine returning to Vanuatu and not staying there.
There couldn't be a more stunning location in Vanuatu than anouska, where you wake up every morning to the most crisp beautiful light and stunning azure sea imaginable. Everything from the decor to the service is impeccable. This is true luxury of a kind that must be experienced to be understood.
“Great Family Holiday House”
We've stayed at Vila anouska on several occasions and have never been disappointed. The space is wonderful and it is the ideal house to share with others as there numerous private spaces that separate guests and allow for some quiet time away from others. The pool is a delight and being attached to the main house makes it easy to supervise children (essential as there's no pool fence but then the unfenced beach is just a few metres away) and plenty to amuse them while relaxing in the sun. If you like cooking the kitchen is very well equipped and has every appliance you need to cook for family and friends. And there are so many places to eat - inside, on the expansive verandahs, in the garden under the trees or on the beachfront in the faré which seats 16 people and has a built-in BBQ adjacent. Or BBQ on the verandah with the big stainless steel gas version. The bedrooms and bathrooms are all like self-contained suites with huge beds and en-suites with seats, lounges and day beds. The live-in staff family are so helpful and it's a joy to have the house and garden attended to every day without ever feeling interrupted. The house is kept in pristine condition with heaps of linen and beach towels, and seating for plenty of guests both in the lounging and outdoor areas as well as the various dining spaces. We took a helicopter tour on one trip and the chopper arrived right on the private beach to take us on a sightseeing trip - magic. Couldn't recommend highly enough.
