    Just perfect for chilling out after a day’s diving or for just relaxing on your tropical holiday. I would highly recommend Santo Vista Cottage.

    I hope that all hosts are as warm, friendly and accommodating as Tim and Yvonne. Our hosts organised our collection from the airport at Luganville, and greeted us upon arrival. The cottage was exactly as described, with a balcony overlooking the straights between Santo and Aore Island. The cottage was as accommodating as the hosts Tim and Yvonne are both Dive Masters with Allan Power Dive Tours, and provided us very good and effective advice on local facilities, culture and history. None could be faulted. We also dived with Allan Power Dive Tours, and had a extremely positive experience.

    “Hosts Tim and Yvonne are great even more so if you are divers. The airport pickup was unexpected as was the welcome pack. The accommodation was the best we experienced in 5 weeks away. The fare is earthquake proof as we experienced a serious category 7 shake one morning for starters, surreal even if not my first. Thanks”

    “Chambre avec vue, vaste studio contemporain avec terrasse en surplomb à 80 m. de la mer à vol d’oiseau, appartement bien équipé et bien fourni, lumineux, aéré, structure bois, toiture bois et pandanus, bungalow privatif, tout cela pour définir ce cottage unique. Les propriétaires, australiens, plongeurs, habitent à côté : accueil, conseil, discrétion, disponibilité, efficacité. Sur la route de l’aéroport de Luganville. Le centre-ville est accessible en bus (100 VUV) ou taxi (300). D’après notre séjour de quatre nuitées de juin 2016, idéal pour couple, plongeurs ou non, à un prix raisonnable, et en intimité.

    Fantastic – Tim & Yvonne couldn’t have been more helpful

    Left on Jul 17, 2016 for a stay in Jul 2016
    We spent nearly a week with Tim & Yvonne in July diving and exploring Santo and had a fantastic time. They made everything so easy, from being met at the airport and providing all the food basics (great coffee, muesli, fruit, milk, you name it) to driving us into town for dives & helping with all sorts of advice on Santo. The cottage is fully equipped, with a washing machine & drying area as well as all the basics, and the only hot showers we had during our trip. I can’t recommend this place enough.

    One of the best places we have ever stayed
    Yvonne and Tim were some of the most accommodating people we have ever met. The villa is spectacular – robes in the room, fresh fruit, breakfast provided, well appointed kitchen, extremely comfortable bed, massive living area, fantastic ocean views. we could go on all day but this place really is a gem. After extensive research of other accommodation on the island this place is by far superior to anything we came across.

    Amazing cottage that we could not recommend highly enough. Tim and Yvonne were super friendly and helpful (thanks for the food and snorkelling gear!). Very comfortable place with everything that you could need. Great ocean views as well!

    Impressive experience in Santo
    Tim and his wife are really nice. They tried their best to help us when we were traveling in Santo. We felt like staying with families not living in a hotel.
