Why Resort Homes chose Fiji

We chose this property because it is absolutely beautiful, quiet and lush. We also love Fiji as the people here are happy, helpful, friendly, not guarded and have a great sense of humor. Very common to hear peeling laughter, which is delightful.

What makes this villa unique

We are on a corner lot so it is spacious and quiet. The pool is surrounded by foliage so it is totally private. The proximity to the ocean within walking distance was a huge selling point for us.

Guestbook comments from the owner

³Having spent a week with our daughter, son-in-law and their 18 month old

son, my wife and I did have a concern that it may not be ideally for the

family (they were coming directly to the villa sight unseen) but it couldn't

have been better. In so many ways it was like being at home. Comfortable,

spacious, fully equipped with excellent taste. The house became our home

for a week so we cannot thank you enough. And of course the warm and

efficient Sushila It helped make our vacation.

Wonderful place to relax or get active

  • 5 of 5

I've lived in Fiji in the past, so it was great to go back with my extended family, and we could not have chosen a better place to stay than this house in Pacific Harbour. Everything they claim about this house is true! We were amazed at the range of activities and amenities now available in the Pacific Harbour area, and the younger members of the family had a wonderful time diving at Beqa Island, kayaking the Navua River, fishing and so forth, while others of us enjoyed relaxing by the pool or at the lovely beach that is only 10 minutes' walk away. The house is extremely well-equipped and it was great to be able to choose to eat home-cooked meals or go out to one of the really good restaurants nearby. The house was perfectly suited for a big family like ours, but would be just as good for a couple. And so private and quiet!

I noticed an earlier reviewer complaining about the internet service, but we had no problems at all with it. Anyway, having lived in Fiji we know that sometimes things don't work as well as they do in developed countries, and that's OK with us. We were impressed by the helpful binder of instructions left by the owners, and had excellent support from Kiti and Richard when we needed it. Really, this is a wonderful place to stay and we're already planning our next visit!

Great house if you dont need internet

  • 3 of 5

The house was clean and ready for us with clear instructions in the binder. The pool was great and got used a lot. Main drawbacks was losing internet on the second day we were there. No email, no news nothing. Supposedly we went over the data cap but all we did was check email and a few facebook messages- no videos or music streaming. Also the kitchen didnt even have salt. Every other VRBO house I have rented had at least a few basic kitchen items on hand all I can guess is the house hasnt been rented out in so long?

Pacific Harbour is perfect if you want activities to do. We went zip lining, did the side by side buggys up to the waterfall and scuba diving. Its really a great little town.

Owner's Response: In response to your review, our apologies for the difficulty encountered with the internet during your stay. Many guests have stayed there without problems. Our agent in Fiji tells us that the ISP was responsible for your internet problems in this case, and we did have our IT manager come to check it out on the same day in any case. In addition, we have since upgraded our wireless hub including a UPS to increase reliability on our end. The guests that have come in after you have had no internet interruptions, we are happy to report. The Villa is definitely in use every month so it was an oversight on our part not to re-stock the salt. Sorry for that inconvenience. When we are there, we typically keep it in the freezer as it tends to absorb water otherwise in the tropical climate. Hopefully you also noticed how well stocked our kitchen is with appliances, dishware, cook-ware, etc. We have tried to take into account everything that our guests would need. We are glad that you did get to enjoy the activities that Pacific Harbourt has to offer. As you say, it is really a great little town and beach is magnificent, as I am sure you would agree.

This is a great place for a holiday

  • 4 of 5

My family and I have stayed in this villa a few times over the past several years now and we are always happy to come back. Pacific Harbour is booming these days, with new restaurants and things to do opening up regularly. If you're into food, there is everything from fine dining at the Pearl and the newly-opened restaurant The Establishment through good resort-type fare at Uprising and Oasis to real local curries and excellent fish and chips. The villa is perfectly located for family holidays or an intimate get-away, with no end of stimulating activities available to burn off the calories. Everyone loves the Zipline forest canopy rides, and the diving with the diving with the sharks off Beqa Island is world-famous. I like to relax by the pool and take long quiet walks on the beach or through the golf course. The house is always clean and tidy, and Kiti is always ready to help if necessary. I recommend this one to everyone I meet!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your thorough review. Sounds like you covered a lot of ground here and had lots of relaxing time as well. That's what is so nice about being in a villa. You can get the best of both worlds. Quiet when you need it, and plenty to do nearby. I also appreciated hearing about new restaurants in the area as we stay in our Villa a few times as well. And thank you for spreading the word. That is fantastic! Hope to have you back again.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Had a very relaxing time in this lovely home by the river. The property is very well maintained and felt like a home away from home. Lovely pool and grounds, we enjoyed sitting outside and playing in the water. Near the ocean, and the seas were very mild looking out on Pacific Harbor, so we felt safe swimming even though not familiar with the area. Easy access to a shopping area for basic food needs. Highly recommended!

Spacious, peaceful, gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our second stay in this beautiful, well-appointed and well-kept home. Location is very private in a secluded neighbourhood.

(Kitty the housekeeper is an angel!)

Master bedroom with ensuite is gorgeous, as is the pool.

Easy walk to the beach.

Local amenities close by at the 'cultural centre' - grocery store, coffee shop, cafe's, post office, ATM.

Fun resort clothes at 'Dream On' - an island gem!

Luxury spa treatments at the Pearl Resort across the main street.

Would definitely recommend and would love to return!

Like Coming Home!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 5th time I have stayed there and it felt like I was coming home - in terms of comfort, familiarity, attractive beauty and desirable functionality. I love the quiet. I love the pool. I love the ocean - so close. I love the convenience of the shops - just a 20 minute walk, and that beautiful Pearl hotel on the beach, when I wanted some high class meal or drink. As before, I took the Coral Sun bus from Suva, and then continued on to Nadi when I needed to - very convenient.

I can highly recommend this place for anyone doing some business in Suva [to avoid having to stay in Suva!], or just for your Fiji holiday, as Pacific Harbour is packed with fun things to do [I didn't do any of them this time, but they're there!].

Owner's Response: It was great to have you back again, our most loyal return guest! Being able to do business and be in such a beautiful vacation destination at the same time is the best of both worlds, and we are happy that our villa suits both of those needs. Looking forward to seeing you again next year. All the best.

Golf: The golf course nearby was designed by the great golf course architect, Robert Trent Jones, Sr. in the early 1970's. It is a long and challenging championship layout that hosted major tournaments in the years after it was built. It was rated in the late 1970's as one of the top courses in the world. In the years 2006 to 2007, the owners of the golf course, The Pearl South Pacific, spent millions of dollars restoring the course and its' greens to their original grandeur. The course layout brings players through pristine and secluded fairways that follow the natural jungle and waterway terrains of Pacific Harbour. The sixth tee of the course is within 200 yards of our house. One can literally walk to the tee and begin playing (as long as your green fees have been priorly handled). It is also possible to directly walk the quarter mile from our residence to the splendid Club House with its beautiful tropical views and enjoy a meal or drinks there.
