³Having spent a week with our daughter, son-in-law and their 18 month old
son, my wife and I did have a concern that it may not be ideally for the
family (they were coming directly to the villa sight unseen) but it couldn't
have been better. In so many ways it was like being at home. Comfortable,
spacious, fully equipped with excellent taste. The house became our home
for a week so we cannot thank you enough. And of course the warm and
efficient Sushila It helped make our vacation.
What a great time to visit Fiji! We loved the mild weather, although it was still plenty warm to swim. The house was a winner for our family of 5. Everyone had their own space which they really appreciated. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. The youngest loved running outside and jumping straight into his own private swimming pool.
Thanks to Richard, Kitty, Sushila, and Raj for their services. They were friendly and helpful and we liked chatting with them. Additionally, the detailed Villa book answered all of our questions about the home and the surrounding area. The neighborhood/community was safe, quiet, and well-maintained and there were excellent dining options.
We enjoyed fresh fruit, curries, and delicious seafood every day. There are two stores within walking distance which made it easy for us to take care of breakfasts and snacks. The nearby Uprising resort has a great beach. They didn't have any problem with us using the beach though we did have one of our meals there first so they knew we weren't just using their facilities for nothing. Their food is a bit on the pricey side and what we had was good but not great. I'll put it this way - some of the best meals we had in Pacific Harbour were also the least expensive. You get a sense pretty quickly which restaurants cater to tourists and those enjoyed by the locals.
In addition to the relaxing beach days, the excursions were a lot of fun. We spent a day in Suva, visited the Colo-i-Suva Forest, and hiked around the Sigatoka Sand Dunes national park. We also loved the Kila Eco-Adventure Park which has a zipline, a ropes course, and a fairly intimidating giant swing. Not for the faint of heart!
Overall, we loved the time we spent in Pacific Harbour. The home felt comfortable and inviting from the moment we arrived. We would definitely enjoy a return trip in the future.
My extended stay at this lovely villa was great! It accommodated my schedule perfectly. I came on business and this environment was ideal for me with excellent internet access and a large central table for me to spread out work and have meetings. The Villa gets such a nice breeze being close to the river that I never needed air conditioning although it is available. The kitchen was easy to fix a quick meal in and the House girl did my laundry and cleaned the house happily. Restaurants are plentiful at nearby Arts Village and several hotels. If I visit Fiji again next year I will definitely stay here.
I've been back to this house many times now. Wonderfully quiet and peaceful, but within walking distance of a great beach, restaurants, shops and other entertainment, I think it's the perfect place for a family holiday or an intimate get-away.
The house itself really does lend itself to relaxed living, with its big sliding doors and wide, shady verandahs. Just walk across the road and if you're lucky you might catch a fish or two for the undercover barbie beside the pool. And there's lots of world-class diving, sport-fishing and other adventures available nearby. Terrific!
A very nice villa with a nice resort across the street and restaurants nearby.
Property was nice and clean. Older fixtures and a few bugs around. Maid came twice and cleaned up for us (and stayed a bit longer than we would've liked). The pool was fantastic and we spent quite a bit of time on the deck reading. The kitchen was great and we cooked every breakfast, lunch and a couple dinners while we were in fiji (saved us loads of money). With just the two of us this house was a bit big (the AC unit made the temperature just right), but for a larger group 4-6 it would be just perfect!
We were lucky enough to spend 2.5 weeks at this house. Everything in the listing was accurate and the house is very well kept. Raj and Kitty were both a great help in greeting us and making our stay as enjoyable as possible, with many suggestions and tips on what to do in the area. Our stay really felt like a home away from home. We enjoyed every day of our visit and did many of the activities around the area. We also spent 3 nights at a Resort in Denarau (near the airport), but the last 3 days at the Resort could not compare to the better experience we had in Pacific Harbour. A real Fiji experience!
The Cultural Arts Center in Pacific Harbour was so convenient with places to eat, a store to buy groceries, shopping, and an ATM all close by. We enjoyed the convenience of being able to cook at home and found everything at the Villa that we needed. There are a couple of resort hotels nearby that we also went to for some evening meals or a nice lunch. We took the canoe out on the river several times and loved seeing the area from a different perspective. The pool was great. The kids loved being able to jump in whenever they wanted to. We also went to the local beaches close by, which you can walk to or drive, if you have a car. Having a car was good, so we could venture out to nearby areas easily.
Pacific Harbour is a great place to stay since many of the Island activities start out here or are nearby.
We hope to come back again and highly recommend this house to anyone considering a Fiji trip.
The house was well-equipped and as described online. With just two of us, we didn't use all the space but it suited us well for a vacation to simply relax and enjoy time together. We made good use of the bikes (we did not rent a car--took the bus from the airport) and enjoyed the canoe and adventuring around the area. Absolutely loved the pool. It was unfortunate that the internet did not work at any point in our stay (DSL and phone line had static issues which we think hindered the internet). Fortunately, the rates are very reasonable at the internet cafe in town. We appreciated having DVDs and the few satellite channels to watch in the evenings as it is definitely quiet in the area and the perfect end to a couple rainy days. We were thankful for the helpful "house manual" that came in handy on more than one occasion and the management were incredibly prompt and helpful in answering any questions we had.
We ate out only a couple times, once in the village for pizza and once at the Uprising Resort--both were adequate. Tried to cook using as many local ingredients and food as possible but spice options were VERY limited so food remained simple in nature. Husband did the Shark Dive with Aqua Trek and Speardiving with Freedive Fiji--both were professional operations with excellent service. Thanks for providing such a lovely place to retreat.
Golf: The golf course nearby was designed by the great golf course architect, Robert Trent Jones, Sr. in the early 1970's. It is a long and challenging championship layout that hosted major tournaments in the years after it was built. It was rated in the late 1970's as one of the top courses in the world. In the years 2006 to 2007, the owners of the golf course, The Pearl South Pacific, spent millions of dollars restoring the course and its' greens to their original grandeur. The course layout brings players through pristine and secluded fairways that follow the natural jungle and waterway terrains of Pacific Harbour. The sixth tee of the course is within 200 yards of our house. One can literally walk to the tee and begin playing (as long as your green fees have been priorly handled). It is also possible to directly walk the quarter mile from our residence to the splendid Club House with its beautiful tropical views and enjoy a meal or drinks there.
