The bungalow is operated by Patrick Simeon's family. We don't have their mobile numbers. Maybe you can help? Contact us. Meanwhile, you can contact the Maskelyne Islands Tourism Committee and they should be able to help.

Pellonk is a gorgeous place to stay. Totally different to next door Peskarus. Manu Guesthouse was being used by a visiting youth group from Malekula, but we were accomodated in a village house. Wonderfully friendly people, good snorkelling.
