Holiday home in Savusavu
Submitted: November 2, 2010
Stayed: October 2010
Potentially, a beautiful site and cottage.
However, the standard of acccommodation did not live up to expectations for the price paid.Propety was not prepared to the standard expected when price paid is considered; incomplete and unacceptable level of cleaning, uncut lawn , no television channels, DVD not working, no iron or ironing board, incomplete kitchen utensil inventory ( some dirty and rusty), dirty oven and dishes, dangerously collapsed beachside bure decking, beachside shower blocked, overflowing and not working, leaking roof in front lounge area, blocked and overflowing guttering, tired and unloved furniture ( one held together with home-made string) blocked outside sink for washing machine, caretaker told us not to use more than ONE air conditioning unit because it would overload system and it would cut out !!! etc etc
On the plus side; very nice, comfortable main bedroom, excellent showers, grreat kayaking, view and ambiance from beachside bure is wonderful.
Friends who live in Fiji visited us all agree with the above.Therefore unable to recommend at the price paid. Property needs some TLC, better maintenance and updating if it is to be considered worthy of the rental price asked.
The property has great potential for all types of holidaymaker. We have had our own property in Fiji for the last 12 years and we visit every year. This simply fell short of expectations of couple who know Savusavu fairly well and all the wonderful things it has to offer.
