Not many of us can afford to live like a dotcom magnate. And if you are on a budget, chances are that the accommodation you will be booking while abroad will be far less luxurious than your own home. Well, in Vanuatu, not only can you enjoy the exuberance of the tropical dream that the islands provide, but there are also many options to enjoy the luxury of a grand tropical home at a very reasonable price.
‘Mifala’ is one such property. Located on 3,500sqm of gorgeous oceanfront land, on Port Vila’s second lagoon, you can have seclusion, ocean, tropical gardens and a luxury house which even has its own tennis court, and all of this only ten minutes from town.
Facing northwest, Mifala has wonderful sunsets and enjoys the cooling touch of the prevailing trade winds. The lagoon waters are calm all year around and perfect for kayaking, a spot of fishing, or a scenic water cruise along its course towards the open ocean.
With one master bedroom with king bed, its own en suite and air con, three double bedrooms with king or queen beds and two shared en suites and a fifth bedroom/media room with a lounge bed, the main house takes a maximum of nine guests.
The house is well-appointed, with tasteful décor, quality finishing, WIFI, Satellite TV, daily housekeeping, media room, kayaks, stand up paddle boards, bikes, ping pong table and BBQ. The owners know how to make sure your needs are covered.
Complete the picture with a large swimming pool, championship tennis court, private jetty, 3.8m aluminum dinghy, and a croquet lawn.
Taking the kayaks or SUP boards for a cruise around the lagoon is always pleasant and fun. You can build up an appetite and stop on the way at Tropicana’s or Vila Chaumiers’ restaurant for a bite to eat before heading back. Or if you have plenty of energy, you can keep going, all the way to Le Lagon Resort, and the open sea.
Don’t feel like kayaking? Well, how about taking the boat? The non-slip quick drying, tennis court will be enjoyed by those with a love of tennis and the non-players and players alike may also enjoy a game of Ping-Pong or relaxed game of croquet, G&T in hand, as you watch the sun go down. Fishing is possible straight from the jetty, or take the dinghy out for something more adventurous.
Once you are ready to leave the house, Club Hippique is only 1km down the road, offering horse trails for all ages and experience levels.
Perfect for groups of friends or large and extended families, Mifala can be rented for as little as AU$550 per night. Or have it all to yourself, it’s up to you! The caretaker’s house is an extra AU$150 per night. Airport transfers and private transport optional extras.
