If its ample space in a newly refurnished home that you and your family are looking for, Yala’s should be on the top of your list and offers excellent value. An ideal family home away from home.

Yala Villa is situated in Upper Tupapa amongst a backdrop of beautiful mountains, and across the road through a dense coconut grove to one of the best fishing beaches on the island. The marine life is abundant and locals come from all over the island to fish for Trevalli, Moki, Cod, Octopus, Shellfish and other island delicacies. Kids can spend hours exploring the reef, gathering shells or paddling in the rock pools.

A 5 minute drive to the white sandy beaches of Muri one way and 3 minutes to Avaruas supermarkets, shops, cafes, bars and restaurants the other, places Yala’s near everthing without having to be in it. For day-to-day things there are a couple of small stores within walking distance.

  • We had such a great time together as a family in Yala...

    We had such a great time together as a family in Yala Villa, room enough for 6 permanent adults to stay with 5 extra family members visiting for meals and social times. Location is perfect, near a wedding venue too. The place is ruined however by multiple dogs barking at night and same with roosters that crow all night. Enjoyed the beaches and the culture, the weather was not kind to us but thats beyond everyones control. Temperatures were warm enough to swim most days. Thank you Eddie.

  • I have all but 1 fault of our stay at YALAS and...

    I have all but 1 fault of our stay at YALAS and that’s that the house didn’t have any large pots or trays to accommodate those who preferred to cook other than dine out but other than that our stay at the house is every persons dream while there on holiday in the tropics were the sun is scortching. LOVED the ceiling fans in all rooms of the house. Highly recommend yalas holiday home for your stay you won’t regret it. We will definately be booking again when we return to our motherland again.

  • Perfect place for our family of 5 adults

    Perfect place for our family of 5 adults. Plenty of space for everyone to do their own thing and everything we needed was at the bach. Nice and peaceful, away from the main tourist areas, and still within 15mins drive of all the places we wanted to go to.
