We visited Luganville in December and we spent a wonderful time (over 2 weeks since we got our diving license with Allan Power) with Jim & Linda in one of their great Beach Villas. Linda & Jim are wonderful people and it was really like living together in a family - all helpful, friendly and always a smile on their face... Villa and service (self-catering) are perfect (the others have already provided all the details in their reviews here) and Santo Island is the perfect island for wreck diving, snorkeling, relaxing on the beach and enjoying a cold Tusker beer with Jim, trips to the wonderful Port Olry, Champagne Beach, Blue Hole, Freshwater Tour, South Pacific WWII Museum, Local Market shopping or just a SUP Tour and many other possibilities ;-)

So a big thank you to Linda, Jim, Tusty and Delma for the wonderful time we had the chance to spend with them - will be back soon ;-)

We have just returned from our 6th trip to Vanuatu. We choose to stay again at Mahi mahi villas with the amazing hosts who now feel like family Linda and Jim. We stayed in villa 1 and friends stayed in villa 2. The villas are immaculately clean , we were given breakfast on the first morning which was yummy fruit platters , smoothies and bakery treats .
The rooms are self catered , which we love , so meals we ate out others nice to enjoy the setting and a home cooked meal. To buy food we went to town ( 15 min drive away ) and the main grocery store LCM had heaps to choose from and well stocked ( note we couldn’t buy alcohol on Sunday ) and the local market was amazing , it changes daily with different stall holders ( bring lots of small change here as most things are $100 vatu.
We loved the nakamol on the beach.
We had the best time and of course will be back ! Loved exploring the blue holes , a waterfall and port orly.
The hosts Linda and Jim are the BEST and are always available if you have any questions , they have been in Vanuatu for 10 yrs so their local knowledge is exceptional . Seriously this place is the BEST for an incredible relaxing holiday in paradise.
We love santo for its beautiful mix of relaxation and adventure . Santo has amazing beaches, great swimming and snorkeling ,it’s safe and friendly and then if you want adventure there’s heaps to do such as waterfalls , blue holes, fishing , horse riding .

My husband and I stayed at Mahi Mahi in November 2019. We stayed in Linda and Jim's amazing 1 bedroom villa. So spacious and clean with a little kitchen and an outdoor BBQ. Totally self sufficient. Jim and Linda are wonderful hosts, almost like family.. The bonus was an outdoor private shower. The surroundings are so beautiful, gardens and view to the sea. Our last night was just the most amazing night with our hosts, crayfish, wine and a laugh together. Forgot to mention that Steve's glasses fell apart, Linda and Jim went out of their way to try and fix his glasses. Awesome all fixed..Love their place.

Hi Jennie & Steve
Thank you for such a lovely review.
We really enjoyed such lovely guests.
The outside shower is even better now, as
we have replaced the concrete floor with a
wooden one. Not so HOT on your feet
Have great Christmas and we look forward
to meeting up again early next year.

Just returned from our second stay at Mahi Mahi and wish I could go back tomorrow.
Amazing location, beautiful beach, water perfect loved the snorkeling. What makes this such a special place is all the attention to detail and thoughtfulness; beautiful clean spacious rooms, lovely fresh linen, milk in the fridge, breakfast for your first morning , homemade cookies in the room, free wifi, a wealth of local knowledge and as much interaction with the hosts as you want. No attempt to charge like a wounded bull at every opportunity, so refreshing in this day an age. It was just a pleasure from start to finish. Thank you Linda, Jim and Delma . PS dugong sighted from the beach unforgettable.

We can highly recommend Mahi Mahi Villas for either a relaxing or adventurous getaway. Jim and Linda were great hosts, nothing was too much trouble. Their Villa’s have everything you need, including comfortable beds and pillows for a great nights sleep. We can’t wait to return!!
