Visited Jan 2011 Kalki (John) was very helpful and the locals are great - very friendly and most welcoming. The accommodation is actually a good 4 room house with 2 bedrooms very well equipped kitchen and lounge. It can be very warm inside. We cooked our own meals as we could not get them cooked for us.

This a great place to stay in the heart of the village. Kalki and his family: Douglas, Doreen and little Manison, made us feel at home and looked after us with great care. Meals were not available when we went but Kalki was everyday offering us either fresh fruit and vegetables from his garden or a plate of delicious laplap or kumala to improve our rice and tinned food. There are a few stores with a few basics and we were able to get a shopping list over to the mainland for beef or chicken. Uripiv island is beautiful with many lovely walks and great snorkelling. It's possible to rent a canoe for 200vts or be taken to a nearby island for 500vts.
