Private waterfront house and guest bungalow in cool, tropical rain forest setting. Go native – albeit in modest luxury - in the Solomon Islands. Dine on fresh fish and locally grown organic fruit, vegetables. Includes housekeeper and cook.

Жилье

House and guest bungalow in private setting fronting warm tropical lagoon.

We particularly encourage people interested in the opportunity to spend time living immersed in the life style, nature and culture of the Western Pacific. The Solomon Islands has very little tourism and remains a relatively undeveloped country. The majority of Solomon Islands subsist daily from their immediate sea and forest resources for their daily needs. If you’re interested in a stay off of the regular tourism routes then Lagoon Haus offers that opportunity.

Our house is sited at Isisu Point, near Peava Village on the SE corner of Gatokae Island in Marovo Lagoon in the Solomon’s Western Province. You can look it up on (website hidden) Earth with these coordinates. 8˚ 47.342’ S (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)’ E

Please scroll down to the section 'Getting Around' for information about how to get there.

Доступно гостям

Guests have access the the main house and a smaller guest bungalow.

The main house is separated into two rooms, with a double bed in one room and a bunk bed with double and single in the other.

The guest bungalow has a double and single bed.

Property is powered by solar providing lighting and 12vDC with automobile type sockets (see pics) for charging electronic equipment like cameras and phones.

The bathroom is plumbed with running water sourced from a pure spring with a modern clean Western-style flush toilet.

The kitchen is equipped with a 2 burner gas stove and oven, a lock-up store room and a large dining table that seats about 10. Cost includes a housekeeper and cook on hand 6 days of the week who is also there to assist with any queries such as things to do, organising boats for fishing trips and any other needs.

There are 2 plastic kayaks and paddles.

Meals. The property is self-contained and includes house keeper on hand to assist. Guests can cater for themselves or have the house keeper source and prepare all meals. If you would prefer to just roll up and not have to think about catering, the house keeper can source and prepare all meals for cost of AUD $20 per person, per day, half that for children under 10. Meals are prepared from clean, fresh and healthy local produce.

Общение с гостями

The level of interaction is up to you. The house is sited in forest just outside of the village and people respect it’s privacy, so if quiet is what you prefer, it’s a very peaceful and secluded location. Or if you want to get involved in village life, Solomon Islanders are very social people and you will be very welcome to join community activities.

Другие важные подробности

Welcome to my home at Peava Village in Marovo Lagoon.

While I’m away living abroad with my husband, I have made our home available for visitors. I hope you will come and enjoy my place in the sun, sea and forest.

Your visit will also help our small rural economy. The Solomons is a very undeveloped country, which is part of the charm but a little tourism income is valued for needs like education, which is user pays.

Activities.
There is excellent snorkelling nearby in the sheltered lagoon or outside in the open blue water for the experienced. SCUBA diving can be arranged with our friends at the nearby Wilderness Lodge.

Offshore are 3 nearby islands, Malemale, Bulo and Kicha. Kicha has been a community MPA (marine protected area) since 2008 and has excellent coral and fish.

Fishing. There is good blue water spearfishing nearby as well as a variety of line fishing opportunities from trawling to deep for species like snapper. A variety fishing can be accessed with a short boat ride. Inexpensive local guide and boat hire are available in the village.

Seasonality.
January is generally fine with clam seas. Feb-March can be wet and windy if there is cyclone activity in the Coral Sea. We are north of the cyclone zone, but their influence can be felt that time of year during ‘Are Mohu’, which means wet wind in Marovo language and during those months the region receives its highest rain fall.

April to June is generally calm and stable.

July normally sees the onset of the ‘Are Hecha’, or SE Trade wind season driven by the large high pressure systems that build over Australia that time of year and generate steady SE winds over the Coral and Solomon Seas. These are the cooler months and also some of the best for fishing, but the sea can be choppy.

From September to December are often the calmest months when the SE trade winds fade and by Christmas the sea is usually glassy calm during most days.

Sea water temperature is around 29 degrees year round. Air temperature is low 20s at night and early 30s during day.

Правила дома

The Solomons is a nation of nearly 1000 islands with over 70 languages so we are a multicultural country and accustomed to people from different islands and places. Guests are warmly welcomed and we understand that people from different places also have different ways.

The Solomons is a very spiritual country and most people are Christian. The first missionaries to our area were Seventh Day Adventists and we have taken on that faith. We respect the Sabbath and on Saturdays the village rests, sings, worships and visits neighbours to eat a prepared lunch. The other 6 days are normal days when people go about their lives and work. As SDAs, drinking and smoking is discouraged, though we respect that guests may wish to bring alcohol, we only ask some discretion please. Don’t drink with villagers, particularly young men. Brief swimwear like bikinis are best not worn about the village, though OK at the seclusion of the house and on the islands where nobody lives.

Une semaine magique chez Wendy! Une belle maison au bord de la mer, des canoës pour se balader dans le lagon, à quelques mètres du village où les gens sont extraordinairement gentils et accueillants... bonheur assuré pour nos enfants qui ont passé leur semaine à jouer avec les enfants du village en toute liberté ! Delnia qui nous faisait Les repas a été parfaite et très aidante : une femme fantastique ! Et Toka nous a emmenés sur son bateau pour faire du snorkeling et voir Les dauphins sur l'île voisine. Mais on peut aussi plonger au bord du lagon et c'est Juste magnifique. Si vous voulez vous retrouver un peu coupés du monde, sur une île paradisiaque avec des gens vraiment gentils, en croisant pratiquement aucun touriste, avec des conditions de vie relativement confortables, foncez !

Wendy's place well exceeded our expectations! Amazingly helpful with the booking and helping to arrange transfers (even getting her nephew to help us buy ferry tickets in Honiara and save seats on the ferry!). Stunning location, village, beaches, jungle and snorkling/diving was all amazing. The ladies looking after us at the house were awesome! Heaps of great food (loved the fish curry and the fen!) and were amazing at suggesting and helping set up activities such as jungle walks and diving during the days. Cannot reccomend this place more it is one of the most amazing places we have ever stayed! If your looking at going consider bringing something for the village. When we talked to people these are some of the more specific things they asked for: Wood carving tools- The village relies to some extent on selling its wood carving and these can be hard to come by (aparaently the New Zealand ones are good?) Antibiotics (Ciprofloxacin, amoxicillin, augmentin) Books and sports equipment (we bough a vortex which is a rocket shaped toy that you throw which went down a treat with the kids) Again thank you so much Wendy for the most amazing time! We hope to be back at some stage in the future!

After two months at Lagoon Haus, I cannot recommend it enough. If you like the idea of eating fish for dinner that you caught that same day, while surrounded by fireflies, listening to the sound of waves lapping against the shore and the crunch of hermit crabs crawling across the ground- then this place will be perfect for you. The village of Peava welcomed me so generously. I learned to weave, played lots of netball, and made close friends. However, if you are looking for a secluded getaway, the house sits a few hundred metres from the main part of the village, and is surrounded by forest, so privacy is very easy to achieve. I spent many days just lying in a hammock reading my book without a single interruption. There is no shortage of things to do here. Kayaking to nearby islands, snorkelling, fishing, hiking, playing sports with the locals, visiting nearby villages, even swimming with dolphins. The house is simple, yet has everything that I could have needed. Shower (no hot water, but considering the weather, you would barely notice), a flushing toilet, electricity (the car charger style plugs were fine for charging a phone) and access to internet in the village (which is very slow and not inexpensive, but still functional). Delnia, who looks after most guests, is a wonderful cook, witty, knowledgeable and will find a way to arrange for you to do whatever you have dreamed on on your trip. Before leaving Australia, Wendy was unbelievably helpful, which was invaluable considering the limited information online about traveling in the Solomons. Overall, the most memorable Airbnb stay that I have ever had. Absolutely wonderful.

Staying at Lagoon Haus was an awesome experience. The house itself is comfortable, breezy, and perfectly located for an afternoon snorkle. The fishing was a blast, with both spearing and trawling ending with full bellies. We got excited and caught more tuna than we could eat, so shared our catch amongst a few families from Peava. The wildlife around Peava was spectacular. We saw plenty of different turtles, sharks, dolphins, and we even saw a white sperm whale!!! Thanks again

My family and I had such a relaxing wonderful holiday in this magical part of the world. The location, the people, the accommodation. The thoughtful care we received from Delnia and her family was such a special treat. The food was incredible and delicious. All my communications with Wendy were extremely helpful and easy. I highly recommend this type of holiday to any one who wants a reset and a reminder that life can slow down. My family and I made some really special connections which has made us super keen to return. Thank you for this amazing experience...

We had an amazing experience at the Lagoon House. Wade and Wendy were brilliant in helping us prior and having their friends assist us in Honiara with the ferry etc. Solomon Island logistics are challenging but were made easy with the advice and support we received. At the house Delniah was just brilliant and sharing a little in her life and that of her family was a special part of our stay in the house and the village. She did wonders in the kitchen producing lovely food and kept everything clean and tidy the whole time. Tokapae was a great and safe boat skipper and took us snorkelling and fishing while their daughter Paecy was wonderful with our kids and a great guide for our local walks and activities. The snorkelling and marine life was beyond awesome and the chance to see some of village life a really wonderful experience. Delniah and Paecy even helped prepare fish we caught for our dinner. The house is perched in the forest with surf crashing on the reef just outside with big verandahs and comfy hammocks making the hot days comfortable. This was a wonderful, relaxing, educative and adventurous experience for our family and we can't thank the hosts enough. If you are thinking of staying here then feel free to check out our 13 year olds blog of her experience at (URL HIDDEN)
