Best vacation home in Fiji!

  • 5 of 5

To make a long story short, the atmosphere is premier, clean and pristine, the new owners (Bruce and Jen) are so friendly and accommodating, and my wife and I will stay no where else next time we travel to SavuSavu. Overall, had THE BEST experience staying at the "Pod House". If you are coming to SavuSavu and want a top notch stay for a great price, look no further.

Survived the Category 5 Cyclone(Hurricane)Winston...No better place in Savusavu.

  • 5 of 5

What can we say.....from the beautiful Pod house with all its amenities to it's incredible structure that gave us the greatest stay and a sense of security when the Cyclone did a u-turn over Tonga and came back on the islands quickly. An extra thanks to Brad who helped us prepared and showed great concern for our was great to see him after the storm in town and his friends who gave us coffee and a phone to call anyone we needed.

The people of Fiji are amazing, resilient and always smiling. The day after the storm they had already cleared over 3 miles of road of debris trees and power lines. The town was getting back in order and the airport was being cleaned up to help the tourist leave if they needed to.

Of all our travels this was both the most relaxing and the most exhilarating to say the least. Brad and Therese were great and don't ever hesitate to stay in this great house and the great town of Savusavu.

So very glad that you arrived home safely and that you saw the REAL FIJI in all its glory, as you said the Fijians are the most amazing people, always smiling , no matter what comes their way. They certainly are a great example of the way the world should be. Thank you again

Pure Bliss - exceeded our expectations!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from an 8 night stay at the Pod House. On arrival. Brad the Owner personally picked us up in his Land Rover and drove us to the Pod House. I was blown away by how awesome the property was. It exceeded what we expected & saw on the web!

It looked like this was a home right out of a Home Decor magazine. Very well decorated, giving you the Fijian feeling.

The King size bed was very comfortable with high grade linens. Spacious shower with separate toilet and double sinks were a plus. Had Pure Fiji toiletries to shower for a few days. Even a washing machine.

The kitchen was as well stocked as my kitchen at home. As my husband & I love to cook, t this was very important to us. We bought our Fresh Fish / Lobster, Fruits & Vegetable at the Local Market which is a few miles down the road. We even had a barbecue to use. We did take a few siestas on the Daybed by the pool... was very private. As it was winter there, the pool was too cold for us Floridians to use, but was lovely to look at.

We could not get enough of the spectacular views in front of the home. You could see miles and miles of the bay with an extinct volcano in the background. Every night there were spectacular sunsets to watch as you sip on a glass of wine from the veranda. Easy walk to Cousteau Resort where you can dine and take Dive trips if you like. There also a famous snorkeling Coral Bed called Split Rock that you can walk to. Taxis are abundant and cheap to use. We did rent a car to explore more of the Island. I recommend this only if you are use to driving on the left side of the road.

As my husband was there for business, he needed to have High Speed Internet. The complimentary WIFI was great to have & worked well.

The Fijian people ARE the happiest people in the world! Loved how they say "Bula" with a smile everytime! I highly recommend that you do not stay on the main Island - go to Vanua Levu to experience true Fiji!

A big "Vinaka" - THANK YOU to Brad & Therese for offering us such spectacular accomodations for our stay in Fiji!! Would love to return one day....

The Pod House is located a short stroll from Cousteau Resort and an easy 10 minute drive to Savusavu township. Great snorkelling straight out front, easy access to Split Rock, a well known snorkelling paradise. Savusavu is a charming harbour town on Vanua Levu, Fiji's second largest island. A great escape where you will experience the real Fiji. A short one hour flight away from the main island and Nadi international airport.
