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.
Vanua Kino Homestay is located on Vangunu Island in Marovo Lagoon, Western Province and is just 10 minutes by motor canoe from the Seghe Airstrip.
Hotel Address: Vangunu Island, Western Province, Morovo Lagoon
From Honiara, visitors to Marovo Lagoon travel by light plane (50-70 minute flight) to Seghe on the south east tip of New Georgia. Visitors should be prepared for the fact that Seghe is a small airstrip with only a few private houses on the edge. The strip has been upgraded to take Dash 8 flights.
On arrival at Seghe, visitors will be transported across the lagoon in an open 22 foot outboard engine powered canoe - standard transport in the area. Its best to be prepared for the chance of getting a little wet from spray on the way to the island!
By Boat: Fast boats depart Honiara 0700 on Sundays ( weather dependant) and drop passengers at Seghe . Slower local passenger boats leave Honiara Sunday morning and arrive in the Lagoon at Seghe wharf for disembarkation approx 11pm the same night. Vanua Kino staff come to meet the ship and take guests directly to the Lodge.
