Vita Guesthouse is right in the heart of Bandaneira. There are seven large, clean rooms with their own bathrooms. In January 2011 the rooms were 100,000 rupiah per night including a big breakfast (125,000 for rooms with air-conditioning). The staff are incredibly friendly and willing to help out in any way - arranging snorkelling trips, transport to other islands etc. You can arrange to have dinner at the guesthouse (50 - 60,000) - the meals are sensational. But perhaps the most appealing aspect of Vita is its location - right on the water's edge, it has its own little jetty where you can idle away time reading, watching passing water traffic, and viewing storm clouds appearing over Gunung Api. The evening breeze also helps keep the mosqitoes away (mosquitoes were a concern for tourists in some of the guesthouses frther away from the water).

Unique Qualities: There is other good, friendly accommodatin options in Bandaneira, but for fantastic views and a cool breeze, few can beat Vita.
