About Meet Our Staff

Freshwater Planattion is the retirement 'project' for Maria Reid and Klaas Sybranda who came to Vanuatu in 2013 and started turning the derelict coffee and cocoa plantation into a tourist attraction. See our Experiences.

Freshwater employs upwards of 20 people at any one time engaged in agriculture, construction, maintenance and hospitality. Guests are welcomed every day arriving either from Aore Island (with a free pickup service) or from San Michel on the mainland by our ferry boat.

The acclaimed Freshwater Plantation House restaurant is open every day for breakfast, lunch and dinner by appointment for groups of six or more. Click Here For more details.
