Although the location, on the northern outskirts of Vaitape, about 8km away from Matira Beach, doesn't exactly scream 'vacation', this is a real find if you’re working to a tight budget. It's a convenient base – banks, supermarkets and restaurants are within walking distance – and accommodation options include four fully equipped apartments with air-con, and two cheaper, simpler fan-cooled units. They're all spotlessly clean.
Of the four apartments, two units enjoy a spiffing water frontage (no beach, but swimming is possible). The two other studios are above the owner's house in a separate building that's a bit inland, and offer great views of Vaitape Bay. The cheaper units sit in the garden, with no views to speak of. Bonuses: complimentary kayaks and bikes. Cash only.
Offering free WiFi, Sunset Hill Lodge provides self-contained apartments on the waterfront or on the hill side. Guests enjoy free use of kayaks and snorkeling equipment. All rooms boast picturesque sea views. Sunset Hill Lodge is within 5 minutes' walk of the shops and restaurants of Vaitape city centre. Guests can enjoy hiking in the surrounding areas. Each apartment features a kitchen with a stove top, microwave and a refrigerator. Private bathrooms feature a shower and a hairdryer. Towels and linen are provided. The property offers laundry facilities.
