We moved to Fiji from Australia, and lived in Savusavu for 7 years, we are now living back in Australia, our two teenage children are now completing school and university. What a change from going to school in sleepy Savusavu to then move to Sydney (Newtown).

Brad or Therese Solomon purchased this house in 2003

We loved the the view from this home and fell in love with the town and it's friendly community. We arrived on a holiday and then moved to Fiji and became part of this very special place.

We lived in the House of Bamboo for two years before it became a holiday rental and loved swimming and snorkelling directly out front. We could pick our own tropical fruit from the garden and could easily access Savusavu township and Cousteau Resort. Protected from the Southern Trade Winds the point always feels protected but still enjoys a breeze from the eastern side. The sunsets from the balcony are always something very special, as are the brilliant starlight nights.

Best place in the World!

  • 5 of 5
To think about The House of Bamboo only one word really comes to mind…WOW! The House of Bamboo was simply our very best stop on our extended journey and our favorite place in the world. We have traveled far and wide and nothing even comes close to the House of Bamboo. As we headed up the stairs we knew that we were in for a treat. The landscaping and flowers were literally falling on our heads, truly an amazing garden. Once we arrived at the top we were absolutely speechless. The place is far more grand and beautiful than I ever imagined.

Brad picked us up from Savusavu airport and as we were driving through town he gave us the run down on where to go, what to see and where to buy provisions. We were in awe of his knowledge of the island. The information he provided us maximized our time and adventure!

Basically our favorite thing was waking up, having a leisurely breakfast outside, either poolside or on the deck. Followed by wonderful snorkeling adventures, literally right out front! Then a soak in the pool, lunch, snorkel, dip in the pool, early dinner while watching the sunset (which is AMAZING) and then maybe a movie! At the House of Bamboo you do not need to leave…

One thing I must add is that I have spent a good portion of my life in a kitchen, chopping, cutting, searing, broiling, etc.. You name it, I have probably cooked it to order a myriad of times. I MUST say that the kitchen is spectacular! All the tools you need for gourmet meals are there. I was extremely impressed, the kitchen was above and beyond my expectations and those are extremely high!

Everything at the House of Bamboo is completely luxurious and completely spotless.. We will stay there again and we look forward to some day taking some children along with us! This is simply the best place and best value on the island. If you are planning a trip, I would not spend a bunch of time looking at all the options the island has to offer, I would not waste time comparing resorts. I did that and I am 100% convinced that booking the House of Bamboo is the best decision of your trip that you will make. We booked 4 days but should have booked 40. Do yourself a favor and stay here!

Also, there is mention of the 100+ stairs up to the house. Piece of cake! I/We would easily climb 100,000 stairs to stay here, it is well worth it. Heck, we would climb 100,000 stairs to look out across the bay!

This is simply the best decision you can make.

Such a fantastic place, beautiful views with a relaxing balcony to watch the spectacular sunsets. The house has everything you could possibly need, from fully equipped kitchen to comfortable beds to a great pool for cooling off and taking a break from your book! Brad and Therese are fabulous hosts with nothing being too much trouble. Yes, there are a lot of stairs but for most people these won't be a bother and it is well worth the effort to have a house in such a spectacularly private place with views you can only dream of! We can't recommend the House of Bamboo highly enough and definitely plan to return!! Thanks Therese and Brad!!

As an active family of 5, this was an ideal place for us. The ocean was incredible, snorkeling just below the house was easy and beautiful. We had plenty of space, the pool was definitely a huge plus and we were close to town and to the Cousteau Resort where we went scuba diving daily. We had a great trip and would definitely stay here again.

Incredible

  • 5 of 5
We were 2 married couples and 1 single. 2 weeks from 28 July -11 August 2011. The house was wonderful, exceptionally clean, well maintained, spacious, ceiling fans in all rooms,and great showers,bath with heaps of hot water (gas). The pool and view were to die for. The kitchen was of a very high standard and a pleasure to work in.Super King beds very comfortable. Perfection to say the least!
Paliese and Vara came to the house to give incredible massages, Kelisie the housekeeper also came in one night to cook for us, beautiful meal. YUM.Pick and drop off to the airport, excellent and prompt. Taxis easy and cheap to get into town. 99 steps from road to house good exercise, however if you have trouble climbing stairs or have knee or hip problems, maybe these steps are not for you. Thats why there is a pool at the top, you need it!
Enjoyed the surrounding area very much, took a leap back in time. There is a book at the house with all details of the area on what to see, where to eat, etc. Read the guest book for all opinions on what one likes and dislikes. Good reviews!! If you want to eat at resort, just make sure you book well in advance. We loved the area and all the beaches, not much shopping to be had, buy your Duty Free alcohol before you leave Nadi, it's a bit pricy in Savusavu. Market fanastic and excellent quality.

Attention to detail at the house is very evident, well done Brad and Therese. Thank you for sharing your paradise with us.

What a fantastic holiday we had at the Bamboo House, We had the most relaxing time, reading a book by the gorgeous pool, enjoying superb sunsets and loving the well set up accommodation, we wanted for nothing it was all just so perfect. I loved the decor it was lovelier than I imagined, the bed was soo soo comfy, with beautiful bed linen .
We really enjoyed walking into town and being greeting with “Bulla” numerous times from the happy friendly people, the happiness of the villages became infectious and made us think that life did not need to be so hectic.
Thank you again Therese and Brad for all your recommendations and help on how to get the most out of our holiday, with lots of great places to see and great places to eat. We were so impressed with Seaview Cafe, the best curry I have eaten in a long while and so inexpensive and enjoyed one or two or three beers at the Copra Shed. The tour of the Pearl Farm was fantastic. Once again it was a wonderful holiday.
Not having visited Savu Savu before, it is definitely on my must come again list and sooner rather than later.

The House of Bamboo is located in an area known as Lesiaceva, a short stroll from Cousteau Resort and approximately 6 kms from the township of Savusavu. Set on the tranquil shores of Savusavu Bay. On Fiji's second largest Island, Vanua Levu. This area is known as The Hidden Paradise, cliche-ish but true. Here you will experience true Fijian hospitality and really feel like you are somewhere off the well trod tourist trails. Some say that Savusavu is reminiscent of parts of Hawaii well before it became what it is today. Savusavu can be accessed by air from Nadi with Pacific Sun. There are also regular ferries from Lautoka and Suva. Once you arrive you can relax and unwind or arrange for fishing, diving or sailing charters. Maybe even visit the local Black Pearl farm or just laze around and rediscover the art of relaxation. Airport pick up from Savusavu airport is included in your tariff, as is a provision starter pack and free local calls and wifi broadband internet access.

Other Activities: lazing in your own hammock, sleeping in an outdoor bure or just taking a dip in the pool.wn private pool
