Oravae Cottage, Gizo

Ever dreamt of escaping to your own private island? Leave the rat race well and truly behind at Oravae Cottage – your own Robinson Crusoe style bungalow in the heart of the Pacific. Perched on the edge of an islet 20 minutes from the mainland, there’s nothing to distract you here but the gentle sound of waves. Spend your days relaxing on the wooden verandah, swimming pristine lagoons, diving or snorkelling WWII Japanese war relics, feasting on traditional island banquets or sinking an ice-cold beer and watching the sun go down as the rest of the world becomes nonexistent.

Whether you’re after a romantic getaway for two or somewhere for a party of 10, Oravae is the perfect escape.

The main cottage is an open-plan wooden bungalow built from local supplies. It has one bedroom with double bed, plus an additional four single beds in the spacious living area.  The cottage also contains a kitchenette and an indoor shower and toilet, plus an additional outdoor shower. The highlight, undoubtedly, is the over-water verandah that leads right out over a beautiful blue lagoon, complete with hammocks and deck chairs (Sleeps 6).

There are now two additional cottages to accommodate larger groups up to 10, however the island is only ever booked for one party at a time:
The Penthouse: an overwater bungalow adjacent to Oravae Cottage,  It has a double bed, indoor toilet and outside shower, and a huge wooden deck perfectly positioned to catch the sea breezes across the lagoon (Sleeps 2).

The Treehouse: Nestled in the trees on stilts right on the water’s edge, it has two wooden decks, the main one having direct views to the impressive Kolombangara Volcano.  It has one double bed, and bathroom facilities are shared with the Cottage and Penthouse (Sleeps 2).
