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.

Great location , Great people , Great time

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time! Definitely a great place for R&R! The location and accommodations were better than expected. A clean, comfortable, beautiful place with a great views,scents, and sounds (birds). The bed out on the deck was a plus...waking up to birds chirping, the scents of honeysuckle, and the view of all the stars at night. The kitchen was well stocked with all you need for cooking. Wifi worked well.

The hosts were great, they were welcoming, helpful, and accommodating. They referred great locals who really made the stay even better, from cooking, to massages, to taxis, and even someone to guide us around. Roy and Lisa are the best!

The town is about 20 minutes away, both taxis and bus are accessible.

Romantic. comfortable, exotic, extended holiday in an unspoiled rainforest with private beach

  • 5 of 5

My wife and me, 79 and 70 years old, spend 102 days in an exeptional wel equipped and very well kept bungalow. My wife is Swiss and very spoilt and she never ever had such a comfortable place. Our hosts lived close by and nothing within reason was too much for them as far as helping out was concerned. Any problem with the house or whatever was solved on the spot. There was no Fijitime in their dictionary. Fijitime is a real nuisance and means that things that bother you will not be solved or only at annoying pace. Our Landlords, Roy and Lisa became somehow very very dear to us without becoming too close, all very professional. We had the time of our live there in a very stimulating area. We have travelled the world and experienced many pleasant holidays but this one was top of the bill .

A Hidden Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Staying at this guest house was the perfect getaway, nestled in the beautiful tropical landscape, such a paradise! Both Roy & Lisa welcomed us and the homely atmosphere was so warm and comfortable for us. As two young girls travelling alone we felt incredibly safe in this secluded hideaway, it really is one of the nicest places we've stayed in Fiji. The short walk to the beach was so peaceful and the views over the bay were just amazing. It was a very special treat staying here and we would highly recommend this for a wonderful trip in Savusavu.

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.
