The home is beautiful and private. Was the perfect place for our family of 5. Everything was clean and worked properly, and the owner was easy to get ahold of and friendly. Would definitely stay again!
A perfect holiday villa in a peaceful location
Fantastic Villa with caretaker who was wonderful. Seema took us to the Sigotoka markets where we bought all fresh produce on Day 1 & then onto the supermarket which set us up for the week. Stayed with 2 small children 2 & 4. Lots of toys & books to occupy them. Seema also looked after the children a few times & they loved her. She is truly an asset to this property.
Beautiful view of sea. Minutes drive to pool which was clean, private & right beside the sea.
We cooked lots there so everything you needed to cook & bake was provided. Great outdoor seating area to soak up the peace & privacy.
Easy drive to great cafe - (eco cafe) which was fine for 2 kids. The drive way was not too steep - we had an ordinary car with no issues at all. Would love to come back again!
Thank you Alia for a wonderful stay. Your home was perfect for our family of four. An amazing view, well equipped and a great place to relax. So enjoyed waking up and looking out at the sun coming up and just laying there listening to the sound of the waves and birds chirping. So peaceful!! We went on adventures during the day and spent a lot of time at the Warwick Hotel, lounging at the pool, swimming at the beach and eating lunch. Sorry to have missed the Eco Cafe, but they were closed on Monday. Maybe next time.
Breezy Hilltop with Primo Reef View
This house has the most wonderful breezes, is very roomy, and it sits atop a hill providing a gorgeous reef view; it's as described & pictured. It keeps cool & the bbq area is nice for doing just that, or hanging out to check out the view. Steep driveway but our little suburu made it.
Maui Bay facilities are no problem to use, we played pool & swam in the pool. We parked our car in front using it as a base for our snorkel forays. **NOTE** know your tides-it makes a difference in most of the reef bays.
The 2 dinner restaurants @ Naviti are very nice & very close. Eco Cafe has good pizza & a great vibe & the Ocean Terrace @ Bedarra Inn is nice. BUY YOUR VEGGIES FROM LOCAL ROADSIDE STANDS. There is a great one a bit past Naviti. Or explore on your own. The Warwick & Outrigger are huge resorts. Natadola Beach is worth finding. We liked being by the east river. If you go to Suva have lunch @ Tikos.
All & all a very relaxing, fun vacation.
The Real Fiji with Options
Taylor Ridge was a great offline retreat from the hustle and bustle of day to day life. My husband and two adult daughters stayed here for 8 days and loved the villa while being able to visit the resorts in the surrounding coral coast area.
The caretaker, Seema, was what made the world of difference to us. She was there when we arrived, provided a tour of the property and was a huge asset to local insight. She assisted us with replacing our less than adequate sedan rental, took my daughter and I shopping and even prepared us lamb curry which was a nice break for me.
Unfortunately it rained 3 days straight which also promoted the ants to move in with us and made it difficult to go up and down the hill since we didn't have 4-wheeled drive. So we made the most of it and played board games and did laundry (no dryer, but when the sun came out, we hung on the outdoor line.)
A higher profile vehicle is definitely recommended for the dirt road that must be driven to get to the villa. And wifi is limited, so buy a sim card from Digitel at the airport for your unlocked cell to stay in touch as needed.
Water shoes are also recommended for walking on the local beach due to the coral remnants.
Visit the local resorts and either pay the daily rate or eat/drink to be welcomed.
We loved everything about the house. It was clean, lots of space, nicely decorated, very private, superb view, excellent staff etc etc. Our 4 year old boy loved all the toys and it was just such a great time we had in Fiji , thank you Taylor Ridge and Seema!! Vinaka!!
So glad you enjoyed your time with us! Seema was truly sad to see you go! Thank you for being an amazing guest! Having guests like you is the reason we love sharing our home with other families. :)
