YoKu Farm Boarding

Who are we and Where are we?

YoKu Farm Dog Boarding is a brand-new service opening from September 2018. Yo Ku Farm is located 17 kms from Port Vila, in the Rentapau area. While YoKu Farm specialises in breeding poultry and livestock, the boarding kennels are located on the same section of the property as Eden on the River. We have space and shade in abundance!

Our boarding policy:

All our canine guests will get around 2-3 hours of playtime a day (weather permitting). As they are pack animals, most dogs do best in a social environment and as a result we companion board where possible and encourage group play. We have kennels of different sizes to enable family pets to board together.

If your pet has a history of aggression towards others, it will require private boarding. Further, if at any time during its stay it displays aggression towards others, it will be moved, and fees will apply.

Dog Accommodation:

  • Undercover kennels with a fenced courtyard.
  • Fully fenced play area with lots of shady trees.
  • Twice a day feeds with Supercoat dog biscuits.
  • A pond to cool off on those hot days.


  • All dogs to be vaccinated- certificate/ confirmation required from Dr Karin at Port Vila Vet Clinic.
  • No unvaccinated puppies.
  • Dates of last flea & tick treatments

Picks ups and Drop Offs:

Pick ups and drops offs are strictly between 9.00am to 10.00 am and 4.00-5.00pm daily. We can pick up and drop off your pet from a convenient location for an extra fee. See below
