Vanua Kino Homestay is situated on Vangunu Island looking westward  towards Seghe Airstrip, just a 10-minute motor canoe ride away. The accommodation lies 50m from the edge of the lagoon in a small family hamlet of just four homes.

In front of the house is a small area of bush that has been preserved to attract birds, flying foxes and butterflies. Kingfishers, herons, horn bills and many varieties of parrots are all frequent visitors.
