The "Bunker" is the perfect spot for a relaxing holiday. Decorated beautifully - very comfort bed! Everything we needed in the kitchen. The most friendly dogs to greet you - Gunner and Kylie (and Gunner's pregnant girlfriend Sophie). Grocery shopping and restaurants were all within walking distance. 1 1/2 km walk into the centre of town, or you can take one of the many local buses for 150 Vatu. And of course Rik and Derek. Derek picked us up at the airport even though our flight was 5 hours late. They have a vast knowledge of the island, which was one of the most valuable features of this stay. We are grateful to them for all their help and hospitality. They helped to make our stay in Port Vila a most memorable one. We highly recommend "the bunker". Cathy&Cathy

We stayed here at the beginning and end of our trip to Vanuatu. We enjoyed it immensely both times. This is the only place we'd consider staying if/when we return to Port Vila.

If you are staying over in Port Vila then no need to look any further. This place is perfect for a single or a couple. Self-contained and private, Rik and Derek have pulled out all the stops to create a tropical hideaway with a stunning view over the lagoon. All the little extras make this feel more like a 5* resort than an Airbnb. We would not consider staying anywhere else when we return to Port Vila.

Perfect stay! Rik went above and beyond to pick me up and drop me off at Port Vila airport (even at a ridiculously early hour) and he and Derek entertain with good food and great conversation - they're really clued into Vanuatu people and politics. The apartment is clean and welcoming, the stovetop is a godsend and view is great. The dogs are super friendly and you can explore the garden right down to the water. Rik and Derek make this stay incredible value for money. The perfect spot to retire after a long day on the island. Thanks guys!

Excellent apartment with everything you could need from towels, kitchen, dvds wifi etc. Derek and Rik have really thought about what theyre guests might need and catered for them. The views are stunning and the apartment is huge and a lovely place to hang out including an outside area. As hosts Derek and Rik are wonderful. Extremely helpful friendly and have excellent knowledge of the area. Do not hesitate to stay anywhere else. This is excellent value for money

Our stay with Derek and Rik was outstanding from the moment we landed in Port Vila. Rik's airport pickup was complete with huge smiles and a flower lay for both of us. He took us through downtown Port Vila and helped us get our bearings. When we arrived at their house we were greeted by their two beautiful dogs Gunner and Kylie who are both very friendly and gentle. We are big dog lovers and were loving having some interaction with them throughout our stay. They came and said hello every morning, but are also happy just to sleep all day if your not dog lovers. The apartment is just as good as the pictures, its clean and light and very comfortable. It has everything you need with a well fit out kitchen, ceiling fans in all rooms and a very effective air-conditioner in the bedroom. The bed is very comfortable and has beautiful views of the lagoon. Most evenings there is a lovely breeze coming off the lagoon which kept the apartment cool. The location is ideal if you want to be tucked away yet close enough to town. A short walk to the main road (3mins) and you can easily catch a bus into town however if you feel up to it, its only a 15-20 minute walk. Derek and Rik are full of local knowledge and are willing to help out with any questions you have and will tell you their favourite places to go and things to do. I would recommend this accommodation highly to couples or a single who want their own space but also to be close to ammenities. Great job Derek and Rik xx

Absolutely loved Rik and Derek's place. So much so that we extended our stay another week. Can't thank them enough, everything was awesome!

Derek & Rik User ProfileDerek & Rik is a superhost.

Originally from Ireland and England but we met in Vanuatu, which we now call home and love to share this magical island paradise and all it has to offer - whether chilling on the beach, surfing, bush walking or learning from the amazing traditional culture and nation building efforts in this young country. We also love to travel, meeting new people and taking in new adventures. Wherever we go we are respectful of local customs and our hosts, and that is all we ask in return of our guests.
