Genuine farm village bungalow accommodation, in the heart of Milne Bay Province! If you are looking to spend your time in beautiful Alotau, Milne Bay in a more genuine local village and farm environment, you have come to the right place.

We would like to welcome you to stay at our farm, in the newly built bungalows or private roomed accommodation facilities. You can either eat local food each night with the family, included in the budget accommodation price, or cook your own food. The prices are far lower than any other place in Alotau, starting 60 PGK (approx A$30) per night*, including village food and some activities.

The best place to stay in Alotau.
Very clean, new stabile houses (with private bathroom) beside the traditional huts,
only 5 minutes by PMV (local bus) from Alotau city center, gives the opportunity to taste the real village life of the natives in Papua. It belongs to a lovely indigenous family (in contrast with the other impersonal and expensive hotels run by white men) who do everything for guests to enjoy their time there. True Melanesian hospitality!
Food (which is included in the price) is great and delicious! It’s cooked with fresh vegetables from their garden and it’s different every day, mother made me taste all different local specialities.
The two sons of the family can also arrange tours around the area.
I feel like I have one more mother and father in Papua, Dr and his wife have been so wonderful to me!

We stayed with the familiy for about a week and they made us feel welcome and helped us in every way they could.
The dinner was always something to look forward to. It was soooo delicious. We tried so much of the local food they had mostly grown themselves.
Don´t think we will ever forget this stay.
Thanks a lot!

Diwosinei and her husband Dr .Geoffrey Mataio made me feel so cosy and at home. The meals were very good, most ingredients are straight from the farm. The family even altered some of the recepies of their cooking due to my vegan diet.
They explained to me patiently their PNG livestyle and farming at Bibiko (which, btw is a tasty sour fruit :). I did ask many questions and appreciated how open these were answered.
I could not take pictures or go for activities because during the 3 days I spent at Bibiko, Alotau was hit by the outskirts of a cyclone, so I added shots out of the guestbook to tell it all. With these extreme wheater conditions I especially apriciated that the entire family made me feel so very welcome.
If you prefer to have your meals in your room: "room service" is available ;-)
Rooms are about 3 minutes walk from the family home, most of the rooms and houses are rent to locals who are very friendly and polite. So the feeling is like staying in a tiny village.

On my first 3 nights stay I had single room with ajoined bathroom. When I returned for another night I slept at a bigger unit with 2 bedrooms (1 double bed, 1 with 2 single beds), a living room with open kitchen and a bathroom. Electricity is on from about 6 to10:30pm.
Bibiko Farm is located just half way between the Gurney (=Alotau) airport and Alotau. Dr. Mataio drove me me to/from the airport.
Just contact him in advance, whether he has vacant rooms: (+675) 726 37 549

This was an excellent shore excursion from a cruise ship. Very good explanations, wonderful feast and village life. The fruit provided was some of the best I have eaten anywhere. The attitude of all concerned was welcoming and very respectful.

We stayed in Bibiko Farm for 3 nigths and was wonderful. The room is clean and big with a nice covered veranda. The food was amazing, one of the best we ever tasted in Papua. The owner and his family helped us with everything. The house is located outside Alotau town which is great, because Alotau is very busy and noisy. Best choice in Alotau!!
