Beautifully Designed House
Aoredise is a wonderful place for a relaxed off-grid getaway. We had 11 magic days over Christmas and New Year and couldn't have wished for a better holiday. The house is beautifully designed with all amenities, and really easy to live in - noting that you are dependent on solar power for electricity and rainwater for drinking and washing.
Everything worked perfectly and we could even use the washing machine as there plenty of sun over that time. Getting supplies was no problem - call call up the taxi boat and the LCM supermarket and local markets in Luganville have everything you need. We did heaps of swimming and snorkeling - how amazing to walk down from the deck and straight into the warm clear ocean to explore the wonders of coral reefs. The bicycles were great for exploring Aore Island. The Coffee Roastery Tour was excellent - they picked us up at the house and took us around the rain-forest before a walk through the coffee roasting process. We can highly recommend Sam Nisa for a tour of Santo - he took us up to Port Olry and Champagne Beach, with a Blue Hole swim on the way back.
Overall a perfect stay!

I can't recommend Aoredise highly enough!
Stuart and June's place is a beautiful little holiday house in an amazing location. Definitely come here if you want to experience a little bit of paradise away from everything. You can just relax. For activities, you can bike ride around Aore Island or go kayaking, paddle boarding, and even snorkeling right in front of the house. Those a little more adventurous, like myself, scuba dived the SS Coolidge wreck with the nearby dive shop. The house has a beautiful BBQ area outside which we used several times while we were there. We did a big shop at the local market in Luganville across the water. If you only have time for one of the major islands in Vanuatu, I would say skip Efate (Port Vila) and go straight to Espiritu Santo and Aore Island (where Stuart and June's place is). I can't recommend Aoredise highly enough!
