The villas have been lovingly restored by a team of happy Ni Vanuatu workers mainly from the adjacent village of Pango. The workers have been trained in all areas of building, plumbing, roofing and maintenance.
Local supplies and traditional materials have been used in the restoration.

The Natangora roofing came from the neighbouring island of Malakula, was thatched by the local Ni Vanuatu, under a government employment plan and was delivered to Port Vila by boat. The local Koho timber used on the villas was manufactured a local Port Villa business, Melanesian Furniture.
