This bure is located right down on the lower part of the property, closest to the beach. The cottage has windows all around, with views of the ocean from 3 sides.
From your king size bed you can see banana trees, hibiscus and watch the sunrise over the 1st island. There is a little fridge in the room for your snacks & cold drinks, and a lovely ceiling fan spinning over your bed.
When you return from your swim it is ten steps from the beach up to the attached hot water honeymoon shower. You can see the ocean while you bathe outdoors in complete privacy! (there are walls on all sides with a door on the front that is just high enough for privacy, but low enough to see the ocean) It is so nice that many of our guests have returned to their homes & added outdoor showers after their stay here with us! After you’ve enjoyed bathing in privacy outdoors, there is a second door that brings you right into the cottage. Now this is the way to bathe in the tropics!
At night when you close your eyes you will hear the sound of the waves on the shore outside your windows. If you like, you can tiptoe down to the sand for a dip under the stars. Otherwise, the hammock is a great place to relax and see the clearest night sky you’ve ever seen. Ever.
This is our newest bure, & from every window are views of the beach and the garden, with mango trees and butterfly orchids in abundance outside. Large windows allow the warm tropical breeze to carry the scent of flowers into your room. Just 30 steps & you are on the beach!
Are you looking for a breathtaking view? If you are, this is the bure for you. Because it is set up the slope from the beach this bure has the advantage of height with expansive ocean views. Our island is famous for the kula birds, which look like small parrots. And the best seats in the house at sundown are on the verandah of the Mango Bure. You will see them flitting through the air at sunset, flying in packs from coconut tree to coconut tree.
The Mango Bure has a king size bed and overhead fan. There is also a single bed under the side window on which you can read your book, and a small fridge nearby for your cold drinks. It is a spacious room with high ceilings, and the walls are covered in indigenous reeds that give the room a real island feeling. There is a large verandah in the front with two oversized chaise lounges. It is the perfect spot to spend the late afternoon and watch the colors of the sky change over the ocean as the sun sets.
From the bathroom you step outdoors to the attached hot water “honeymoon shower”. It was built from lava rocks we found down the island and has a banana tree cascading over the rock wall. Talk about a special place to bathe! You haven’t lived until you have showered here outdoors, in total privacy, looking out at the sea.
This light and airy bure is cooled by the trade winds that rustle through the papaya trees outside. It has a queen size bed, ceiling fan and a little fridge in the corner for your cold drinks. Its louvered windows provide beautiful views of the ocean and sunrise from your bed! Outside, on your verandah, there are heliconias and hibiscus everywhere, and down a few steps is the outdoor lava rock shower.
Of course there is a hot water shower inside your bure, but this outside one is the perfect place to rinse off after a swim & watch the sunlight reflect off the ocean waters. It has a cute little half door in the front so that you can see the ocean from here without frightening the fish.
Many guests love the fact that this bure has views of sunrise & the 3 islands right from their bed! It is smaller than the other 2 bures (192 sq feet inside plus a 64 sq foot outside verandah), but just as lovely with wonderful beach views. From this bure the soft white sand beach is only 29 steps.
