Nancy and Sam and family run a beautiful, idyllic property high above Port Resolution, with lovely views over the ocean, lake and forests towards the ridge with Mt Yasur volcano behind. You can see the smoke from the volcano and at night the glow is visible. Accommodation is lovely and comfortable and the huge meals come from the property’s garden and fruit trees. The property is 2 hours from the airport and 20 minutes from the volcano. Nancy organised transport to and from the airport and to and from the volcano. We loved our walks into the village and to White Sands beach, and to the black beach with hot springs. A beautiful, relaxing and remote time away from our busy world back home.

The food was plenty and Nancy made a very delicious coconut jam! The location is just perfect! At night you could see the light of the volcano behind the trees! We enjoyed going with the family to church on Sunday, such an authentic experience! The location is just perfect, only a short walk to Black Sand Beach and the Hot Spring and a little bit further was a really nice village and Whites Beach. Great for snorkelling! :)

We stayed at Volcano Island Dream for a couple of nights and thoroughly enjoyed the view of the volcano and the adventure to get to the bungalows from the airport. The food was very good considering the location and plentiful at breakfast and dinner. We stayed in the en-suite room which was basic but great. Our only comment is that in the en-suite room the battery to charge mobile phones is located and the family continually went in and out of the room. This unfortunately became tiring and also made us feel uncomfortable about security of our items. We would recommend these bungalows as the family were lovely. Just manage the battery using situation if you end up in the en-suite room.

Location of this beautiful place is amazing. You got views of the mountains, plantations, lagoon, Port Resolution and the glow of Mt. Yasur. Very quiet! Nancy and her family are very friendly and helpful. Their place is basic but well taken care of. We set up our tent on their grassy patch and enjoyed a couple of relaxing days in the area. Walked down to White sand beach and walked around. A bit rough for snorkeling but on a calm day, the reef looks amazing. We sunbathed and swam in the protected areas of Port Resolution which was great! You can walk around the villages and make sure you ask around for what is going on...it might take a while for you to find out and get it organized :-) Lovely people though. Nancy is an amazing cook and food was plentiful. It is a remote place so it is not cheap to get there but worth it! It is like an hour and a half walk from Mt Yasur. Facilities at Island Dreams are basic but they have flush toilets and showers. Nancy can organize transport to the volcano and airport, just make sure you tell her in advance...there might not vehicles available all the time :-) We would go back for sure!

Over the past two years, I have stayed with Nancy and her family twice, for 10 days each time. They are very hospitable and lovely people and will do everything they can to ensure you have a fantastic stay. The views from this place, as other reviewers have mentioned are phenomenal, with views to the lagoons below, and right out to Port Resolution. The village of Port Resolution is a short walk down the hill, and there will usually be children walking to school at the same time if you walk down to the village in the morning. At the village, you can find a coffee shop right next to the soccer field, and even ice creams and cold beer if you ask around and find the right people. Before heading to Tanna you need to take into consideration that electricity and hot water are two things that you won't find much of, if any. They run a generator every evening for a few hours but other than that you will have no electricity, so be prepared with portable batteries and solar chargers if you need them. The shower and toilet have temperamental plumbing, but there is a shower on the beach at White Sands Beach with considerably better water pressure if you're desperate. Make sure you bring all of your money in cash, there will be no way whatsoever to withdraw cash from a card once you arrive on Tanna Island, so it's essential you do this in Port Vila.
