I have just spent a week at this place. The accommodation is basic but the size of the rooms and the comfort of the beds more than compensates. Each bedroom has a double and two singles with new linen. There is still plenty of extra space for suitcases etc.
In the shared kitchen, there are two tables for meals and a single burner gas stove, new utensils, and plates.
The shower and toilet are outside with no hot water.
The highlight of the place is the porch that allows you to look directly out to sea and the nearby islands. I made it a mission to see the sunrise each day.
The beach is directly in front of the bungalow with perfect white sand, and warm clear water.
In regards to eating you have 4 choices. The restaurant, 50m away, great food but a little pricey. A second restaurant in the village, the mini market, with home cooked meals at $5, I ate there every day. Lastly home cooked meals.
The main village is about 1 km away.

PART TWO - The weather was windy for the 2 days we spent in Port Olry – apparently the time of the year BUT we did swim. After delivering stationery to the local primary school, wandering down the beach we spotted 2 dugongs ducking and diving off the shore! Blue Holes – Port Olry has their own blue hole, about 5 minutes drive south of the village. You can hear the waves crashing around the corner from this blue hole, but a lot of tree debris in the water. 500 vatu for the 4 of us. Food while in Port Olry - Little Paradise Restaurant right next to the other bungalows on the beach - great food at good prices. We paid 6000 vatu for 4 people to stay at the bungalows. Electricity at night is limited for about 4 hours and via a local initiative - coconut oil generator for the entire village - remarkable thinking on behalf of this community.

Nokome Colleens Bungalow is 60m from the beach – with no fencing in between. There are 2 bungalows in one building with a kitchen dividing the 2 bungalows. Westernised toilet outside – with “fill the cistern yourself” from the nearby water trough, set up (that’s fine by us) and a tiled shower in the next outhouse. Concrete block construction building with natangora (thatched) roofing and a lovely outside covered verandah – perfect for relaxing and looking out at the to-die-for views. The room was clean and comfortable. Solar lighting at night – minimal so we’re glad we took torches with us. Double bed with 2 singles as well – plenty of room for bags. The kitchen has a gas hob so you could boil up the rainwater for hot drinks. Breakfast was a loaf of bread, jams and pamplemousse. Stanislaus and his beautiful wife Melanie were great hosts. Their lovely daughters delivered the breakfast tray each morning for us and the sole traveller next door.
