chez maureen bungalows 

Chez Maureen is the only boutique bungalow in Torba Province, offering a luxurious ocean front stay just 300m from the airport.

Owned by Maureen Avry, the Chez Maureen property offers 2 high quality bungalows, each with an ensuite bathroom and private terrace that overlooks the Pacific Ocean.

Each bungalow is over 40 sqm and has been built with local volcanic stone and high quality teak wood.  Each room is furnished with a king size bead and decorated with Gaua black palm carvings and Merelava artifacts.

Restaurant service is provided on each private terrace or in the seafront fare to enjoy a Melanesian feast or BBQ night. Maureen has been professionally trained at “A Peché Mignon” the famous French bakery in Port Vila and will cook for you all Vanuatu’s best recipes with a French touch. Maureen is also well known for her very diversified garden and own kava bar. Cold beverages, wine and beer are also available on site.

During your stay snorkel straight in front of your bungalow or use the available kayaks or local outrigger canoes. Maureen will be more than happy to show you around the village on a walking tour or learn how to make kava! Maureen will also be able to organize any external tours you wish to undertake such as watching the women’s water music or an overnight trek.

Other services available include laundry, babysitting and transfers.

Maureen speaks French, Bislama and English and is looking forward to welcoming you into her home.
