Kavieng in New Ireland Province is a sleepy little town with a 9-hole golf course, a small number of restaurants and bar facilities, banks, a post office, general stores. It has a large, beautiful harbour and is a popular destination for diving, surfing and sports fishing enthusiasts as well as cruising yachts. Along the edge of the harbour is Nusa Parade, a gently curving road, shaded by huge trees, which passes many points of historical interest, the main market, the port, fisheries and the hospital.
Picture a small private tropical island with a white sandy beach, tall palm trees, magnificent sunsets and surrounded by some of the world’s best coral reefs. The four bungalows, built in the traditional way are spread out all over the island ensuring maximum privacy.
