Rob & Alix have created a very special and ecologically responsible guesthouse on this remote, yet easily accessible island. This is the perfect place to experience true sustainability in a pristine environment established before eco-tourism became fashionable. So many things to see and do - beautiful white sand beaches, waterfalls, jungle treks, swimming with Dugongs at Lamen Bay. Enjoy freshly...

More of a homestay than a guest-house, we enjoyed 2 days of wonderful hospitality from Alix and Rob in their amazing home, built by Rob from mostly local materials. Great character; amazing cooking, 'effortlessly rustled up' by Alix using organic produce from their garden; the luxury of a nice bathroom and hot water after cold bucket showers; very entertaining conversations...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In the middle of the Coral Sea you will find a private slice of paradise - Epi Guesthouse. Situated on 13 acres of lush tropical gardens, this Pacific Island retreat is on the south western coast of stunning Epi Island, only a half hour flight from Port Vila. Epi Guesthouse is one of Vanuatu's most unique tourism properties leading the way in Eco Tourism having won the Green Award in Vanuatu Tourism Awards two years in a row. Staying at the guesthouse gives travellers a chance to experience an alternative lifestyle first hand with the comforts of solar hot water, hydroelectricity and WiFi access. Epi Guesthouse is unique because it is a family home, with all the comforts of such, and guests very quickly feel more like they are staying with friends. All meals are shared with guests dining alfresco under the wide veranda, where many hours are spent engaged in stimulating and intelligent conversation, discussing and solving the problems of the universe. All while enjoying a refreshing cold drink from the well-stocked bar and feasting on the changing vista of the Coral Sea. People come from all over the world to share their stories and their thoughts and are encouraged to spread the word about their experience of this slice of unspoilt paradise. This is a wonderful opportunity for guests to experience a quiet sojourn on a secluded island. ... more   less
