VANUATU BEACH HOUSE
'SEA CHANGE' WATERFRONT
'Sea-change' waterfront home calling tropical retiree, yachtie or holiday maker. This perfectly-maintained, casual beach-house has views to die for, an acre of gardens and amazing boating, snorkeling and diving at your front door. Host a game of Petanque for your neighbours or watch turtles swimming at sunrise from your beachside fare. Not a cent to spend in Havannah Harbour; built and maintained by a meticulous owner.
Havannah Harbour is an easy 20 minute drive North-West of Port Vila airport on a sealed road. It is an idyllic location without the hustle and bustle of Port Vila. Expatriate homes dot the sheltered harbour-side coastline with stunning views over the calm harbour waters to Lelepa and Moso Islands. Diving and snorkeling activities thrive in the crystal water of Havannah Harbour amid stunning coral reefs. Local residents are mostly keen swimmers, fishermen or boaties who cannot resist the lure of the harbour and offshore waters.
When you first arrive at this property you have a sense of true privacy with many of the original trees on this acreage providing shade as you meander down the driveway.
From the moment you step through the front door, the property opens up to the expansive views Havannah Harbour is renowned for. Standing in the open plan living area you are immediately enticed to the table outside on the spacious, shady verandah and the adjoining sitting area with BBQ and you sense this outdoor area is the heart of the home.
This home has been loved by its meticulous owner and it shows in the kitchen, the two bathrooms and the three bedrooms. You will not need to spend a cent here.
The current owner is a keen diver who also loves to play Petanque (outdoor bowls) with the neighbours. His wife is an artist and this is a home that caters to all of these interests. There is a Petanque playing area, a separate room for the art studio, lots of outside storage for the dive equipment and a waterfront fare. Enjoy your morning coffee here before your daily swim.
Traditionally, it has been difficult to buy into Havannah Harbour as owners rarely list their properties. Some areas of Vanuatu are subject to relentless prevailing winds or noisy neigbourhoods on your doorstep. Not so Havannah Harbour. It is a well-loved, peaceful retreat with perfect waterside breezes and friendly neighbours.
If you are looking for a tropical 'sea change' to a friendly community, a well maintained waterfront property and a totally realistic price tag - this is the one.
