We stayed in the bungalows during the Salav Festival (St.Andrew's Day Festival) on November 30th last year, both of which we highly recommend to visitors to Gaua island. The bungalows are set close by to the village, but in a secluded and peaceful area nearby the shore. Both Astin and his wife, Elina, are very friendly and have many stories to share about themselves and the village. The food is a mix of local dishes with western additions (rice, butter, bread etc.). Make sure to ask Elina for local fruit such as paw paw, mango, pineapple, mandarins etc. as there are plenty around!
The festival was also spectacular, showing the traditional cultural (kastom) activities of these people and island!
For more information, feel free to contact Further Arts (Vanuatu NGO supporting the festival and village) via facebook, website: www.furtherarts.org or email: info@furtherarts.org.

If you walk past the first two guesthouses by the airport and on past Aver bay and the health centre you come to Namasari village after 30 minutes (some lads carried our bags for some vatu or a truck will cost 1000 vatu). Here Austin Robert runs a very pleasant bungalow, lovely little house and lovely simple aelan food. It is 25 yards from a creek and 100 yards from a black sand beach where the children swim. The secondary school is 10 minutes away as is the health centre.
We were wonderfully looked after and Austin Robert was always there to offer advice, tell us some stories and hear our news. Well worth the extra effort of getting there.

Weul and his family are AMAZING- I would highly recommend this place to stay. We had our own sleeping house, eating house, bucket shower house and long-drop toilet house. Every morning we had fresh flowers left outside on our table and crackers or fresh bread with fruit, peanut butter, boiled water and coffee. They must have kept an eagle eye on us because our lunch and dinner arrived whenever we arrived back from a walk or activity. The food was amazing and we had to ask them to give us less so no problem with not eating enough. We were always provided with boiled water and tea. All the family partook in caring for us. When we arrived unexpectedly they all cleaned up the already tidy yard, made our beds and meals. They often came to share 'stories' with us, took us to church (the singing was amazing), on a walk, school, soccer games and to their kava bar. They really expected very little and gave their hearts in our care. We were the first visitors of the year and I think they appreciated it.
