You can use your boat driver/surf guide to take you surfing, fishing, snorkeling, shopping ... all in your own time!
Isn't it amazing that you can now afford to bring your whole family to the Mentawais on holiday? This is a truly unique opportunity to rent a family villa in the Mentawai Islands at an affordable price. Many surfers have done multiple boat and resort trips, but now find themselves in a "surfing family" situation, but boat charters and surf resorts are simply too expensive for mom dad and the kids.
And not only families: Our villas can sleep up to 4 adults, making them a fantastic affordable option for small groups of surfers.
If you don’t surf the snorkeling, fishing and beaching is world class. The Mentawai Islands are a hidden gem, for many years only enjoyed by traveling surfers and cruising sailors. There is so much more to these beautiful tropical islands than just the waves.
We have 3 hectares of land on the southern tip of Awera Island, giving us 250m of west coast and 300m of east coast which come together on a beautiful sandspit. Across the channel on North Sipora Island is Tau Pejat village which is connected to Padang via various overnight ferries as well the "Mentawai Fast" ferry which takes just 3 hrs to cross the straight and runs 4 times a week. Getting to us is therefore quick and easy.
The fully equipped villas are on our west facing beach with a view of our right hand reef and the left hander across the channel. Cool sea breezes blow across a shallow and calm lagoon with a beautiful safe beach and lots of shady palms. Great snorkeling out front with a pontoon on the drop off and easy access on and off your boat.
An added bonus is the cell tower at Tau Pejat which is visible from your villa...giving you a 24/7 4G connection...
Bilou villas also have the highest "green" rating, being 100% off the grid and powered only by solar panels. read more
