The House

John's Place is nestled amongst a beautifully grassed palm grove, surrounded by the white sandy beach and the deep blue water lagoon of Awera Island, in the Mentawais. John's Place is very unique, and has been designed to cater only to small groups, families and couples. Built by hand from Sumatran hardwood the layout is similar to that of a large Queenslander which overlooks the surf breaks G4’ and Hookers, with Devils Island in the distance.

John's Place consists of 5 air conditioned bedrooms set up for couples, twins or singles. All the rooms open up on to the upper or lower verandahs. There is 2 large bathrooms, one upstairs and one downstairs with western style toilets and showers. The enclosed dining area is upstairs and is very comfortable with air-conditioning and an amazing outlook over the grounds and blue waters of the lagoon.


For a little more entertainment there is an air conditioned games room downstairs with a pool table and ping pong table where many battles can take place! The games area opens up on to the lower deck and swimming pool where you can relax after a surf with a beer or entertain the kids and make all the noise you like, we have no neighbours or other guests its just you!
