My stay at the Barrier Beach house didn't start off as i originally planned, but Julie and Calvin made me feel soo welcome and comfortable. My room was lovely and quiet and the gardens around it were full of butterflies. Julie made sure i had a lot of tours to choose from and organised everything for me. I enjoyed adventuring...

This was my second visit to this delightful boutique ‘resort’ and it soon became apparent that I had made the right decision to return. I spent 11 days doing as much or as little as I chose knowing that I could snorkel, paddle-board or kayak anytime with the beach just steps away from my Fare; or I could just relax...

What an absolute paradise is Barrier Beach on the island of Santo, and where better to stay than the small, but well-appointed Barrier Beach House. It was a real find. Our hosts Julie and Cal made us feel at home from the moment we arrived (from a very early flight from Port Vila) giving us breakfast on the wonderful verandah...

Recently spent 5 nights at the Barrier Beach House with a friend and within minutes of being there we were trying to figure out when we could return.

Very quiet, private feel. Rooms are spotless and modern. Great place to base yourself on Santo if you're interested in doing day trips / sight seeing or just lounging on the secluded private beach. Also, it's worth mentioning that they served the best cocktails we had in Vanuatu!
