We spent 3 nights with Jack and Linnes in one of their 2 very well maintained and beautifully decorated bungalows in Nanwut on Uri. We had a great time. Jack and Linnes are very friendly hosts who were trying everything to make our stay as comfortable and memorable as possible. The snorkelling right in front of the bungalows is great but the marine park (30 minutes by boat) is just another league with pristine corals and loads of turtles. We also really enjoyed Jack's guided jungle tour. If you consider staying in this part of Malekoula, look no further. As a tip for travellers with sensitive stomachs, take water treatment tablets (available in your pharmacy). The drinking water is collected rain water and while it should be safe to drink, it would be shame to let an upset stomach ruin your stay.

We had a lovely stay with Linnes and Jake in August 2013. They are very warm and caring hosts. We still think about them and talk of them often. There is a small village at the end of the island and the Chief came to visit and meet us not long after we arrived. It was so relaxing reading in the hammocks in the shade and there is a great marine park area where you can go snorkeling. Jake had just finished a lovely new outdoor bathroom area. Apparently dugongs go past the bungalows but we did not see one. We went for a walk and got lost (even though the island is tiny) but were rescued by a local who guided us back to Nanwut. Make sure you keep any food you have in the bungalow in a plastic container. I had fresh fish that Jake had caught that afternoon - yum! I want to go back.

Stayed for three nights in Septemner 2013 - Loved it! Jake and Lines are lovely. I was a bit apprehensive about the local food as I can be a bit of a fussy eater, but I have to say every meal was delicious. Snorkelling right out the front was good and easy. The Marine Park a the other end of the island was also worth a visit with beautiful big clams. Stuart Davis
