Guestbook comments from the owner

This was an absolute paradise. The cottage location is amazing, there is hardly anybody around, very relaxing and tranquil. The view from the cottage is just stunning. The whole place feels like you are in the rain forest, there is nobody on the beach apart from a few locals who are the friendliest people I have ever come across. The river is spectacular, kayaking and snorkelling is a great experience. Lisa makes beautiful jewellery, it is worth having a look.

This was the best holiday I have ever had, after this experience I shall never go to a resort again. I feel like I have experienced a real Fiji, I recommend the bus journey to the town and the market. This holiday was definitely worth the very long flight from the UK. I have loved every minute of this holiday.

All the comforts of home but with a much better view

  • 5 of 5

This holiday rental is is situated in a very quiet, sparsely populated area, a short walk from a private, black sand beach, and overlooks lush tropical greenery. It is great for bird watching from the wrap-around verandah, and the house itself is well-appointed, light and airy. The comfortable king size bed, quiet, and the absence of street lights meant we slept very well. The owners are welcoming and hospitable, and seem to have anticipated anything their guests could want for their stay. Travel to and from Savusavu is easy enough, but we opted to stay home as much as possible -- it was that relaxing! We are hoping to return as soon as we can.

Every day was postcard perfect!

  • 5 of 5

For two weeks my husband and I awoke to cheerful birds singing the songs of a new day at Sekawa Beach Cottage. With no other sounds except for gentle breezes and the odd rain drops, relaxation is inevitable. My fisherman husband especially loved going to the beach early in the morning while I lounged with my coffee and breakfast on the veranda enjoying the birds and beautiful tropical landscaping. A short walk from the cottage takes you to the beach where whether treasure hunting or fishing from the sandy beach, the rocky coral point or at the river mouth, there were always sites to enjoy: from fish, to turtles, to sunsets, to beautiful corals and all the beauty of the jungle rainforest in between. While many postcard picture moments only come available a few times a year we managed to see them every day.

Roy and Lisa are amazing hosts and are loaded with all the information you could ever ask of them. They helped us with all the inquiries we had prior to our travel, making planning for packing and what to expect on arrival so much easier than going in blind. They are extremely knowledgeable and made excellent recommendations for food and sights in and around Savusavu. We can't thank them enough for the wonderful time that we experienced. We also enjoyed kava and a lovo with them on our last day and that will be a memory that stays with us forever.

The Fijian people are incredibly friendly and welcoming, you cannot walk past anyone without them giving you a friendly "Bula" with a smile. Shopping in the produce/fish markets were wonderful experiences, amazingly fresh and cheap fruits and veggies. We joked that this was easily the most healthy we have ever eaten on a holiday.

The cottage itself was exceptionally clean and outfitted with everything you could possibly need: full kitchen with everything you'd ever need, comfy bed, lots of closet space, washer and dryer, full entertainment center (and access to an extensive movie collection!) One of my favorite things was the bed outside on the veranda with the netting that was perfect for afternoon naps!

Everything we experienced was wonderful. The sights, the sounds, the people, the food, the weather..........If you want to experience Fiji and relax while doing so, this is the place. You'll love it, we did!

Our family holiday in Fiji

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a quite comfortable place that was self contained clean and complete- we found it here ! Great hosts and the whole area is excellent, the beach,the forest,the local Fijians,the local food, and the accomodation is awesome and affordable. The $1500 a night resort hidden in the forest next door is a firm recommendation for the quality of the area.

So many things to see and do locally and in the region.

My idea of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect time in Savusavu. A great place to stay, with the wonderful hospitality of our hosts Roy & Lisa and a great location. We were able to feel welcome, relaxed and able to enjoy both the peacefulness of birds and being surrounded by rainforest and to walk to the beach and have it all to ourselves or walk in the rainforest to a waterfall, able to swim feeling the water fall on us. A great place to stay.

This place is the best kept secret in Australia and Fiji.

  • 4 of 5

The property is pristine and the house is SO clean and relaxing with a surrounding veranda overlooking a tropical garden. Close to the beach with views to Savusavu from there. This is a real holiday destination. Although we were here for work too, it is a short run to town with scenic views on the way that are nothing short of spectacular. We are well travelled in Fiji because of our work but this is the best place we have stayed in, in Fiji (including the Novatel in Suva). We will come again.

Quiet, Lovely Home

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying in this home. It is on a nice property, with short walk down to a beach that is almost your own. The owners are very kind, and are close at hand and live in a separate house on the large property year round. There is a drive into town, but I enjoyed driving it after renting a car in Savusavu town. The road is good, but dark so consider returning before nightfall. Great experience, and wish I could have stayed longer.
