About Avisake and Alessandro
We are a young family. I am a Fijian and my husband is from Switzerland. We have two children Ethan and Axel. Before we bought the property we were sailing around Fiji and operating as a charter business. Thanks to the yacht we got to know this beautiful hidden paradise. We will make your stay an enjoyable and a memorable one!
Avisake and Alessandro purchased this Cottage in 2017
What makes this Cottage unique
With its beautiful scenery and secluded beach ideal for swimming and sea kayaking at any tide, Sekawa Beach is the perfect place to enjoy a quiet, peaceful beachfront holiday. Imagine waking up to the chatter of numerous birds first thing in the morning and the gentle waves lapping on the mile long beach perfect for strolling or running. It is truly a delight to meet the friendly Fijian villagers fishing off the beach and be invited back to the village for church or a school visit.

I love the thought of going to this property as soon as we are able. The hosts have been very kind and good to communicate with, so when we can we will rebook.

not possible to write how beautiful (and how fortunate) we were to stay at avi & alex's home. it was beyond incredible... everything everyone writes in their reviews about this home is all true, especially the parts where they cannot speak enough to the tranquility, the peacefulness and the graciousness of the hosts avi & alex. my husband and i have been fortunate to travel many times (since we were little kids) to the south pacific having family and friends spread throughout... now, as adults (early 50's), besides visiting loved ones, we are always searching for a place of our "own" to stay that's more like we knew as kids, not a big resort, more away from the grid, where time moves slower, the pace more peaceful (we live in venice beach) a place more private, and it is SO lovely it makes your heart hurt to leave. this home, this place is our MOST favorite we've ever been to. it's the perfect respite to reset the soul. we hope to return next year for a longer visit & watch some sailing for certain : ) we cannot thank our hosts enough. to avi, alex and master sailer ethan and future sailer axel.. Malo Aupito & thank you !!! (and because i'm OCD and believe in writing a teeny bit on logistics.. just a few notes ... bring a few of your own shopping bags - SO helpful/vital to cut down on local shops, markets and their plastic bag usage, "chico" style is perfect, they're tiny, and whether supermarket, fresh veggies, or even fresh fish you can wash out and they dry so fast. bring a water bottle, avi/alex are genius and have access to Spring Water, they have SAFE BOTTLED spring water, we didn't buy one plastic water bottle during our stay. turkish style beach towels are light/fast dry for off beach/water getaways - the property provides plenty of linens but traditional towels are bulky/heavier to pack on adventure jaunts... i can never get my husband out of the water, wet towels follow him everywhere, so turkish towels are a must!! we hope you have a blast!!)
I’d give Tropical Splendor 6 out of 5 if possible
We have travelled a fair bit of this beautiful planet staying in a combination of short-term rentals and 5 star resorts. I’d choose Tropical Splendor over any of them any day.
The tranquility of the estate, the artisan touches imbedded throughout the cottage and owners’ customer service is second to none.
A typical day in this nature saturated peaceful refuge started with our morning coffee (French press provided) listening to the songs various birds shared followed by beach walks where we rarely saw another soul.
Alex took us snorkelling three times and with his dive experience And local knowledge we were in the safest of hands. He is very involved in coral restoration and we were grateful he happily shared his knowledge. Avi’s endless smile and kind heart is a reprieve from the the business of the world. She is a quick message away for any questions and so happy to assist. On Saturday she welcomed us to join her at the local market to stock up on fresh veggies, lobster and fresh prawns. If you’re a foodie don’t miss out on the market. Back at Trooical Splendor you have everything you need to put together lovely meals to enjoy on the poolside wraparound deck. Following dinner we would head to the beach and soak in the sunsets.
The cottage itself is built to a standard to which North Americans are accustomed. The photos quite simply do not do it justice at all. If you’re a bit of a clean weirdo like me just know even the nooks and crannies are clean. (Better than my own home dare I say!).
I highly recommend Tropical Splendor. If it possible I’d give it 6 out if 5. In fact I’m Eternally grateful for the opportunity to have stayed here.
Thank you Alex and Avi for all you do.
Dear Susan and Tim,
Thank you so much for your beautiful kind words. We are so grateful that you had a wonderful time with us at Tropical Splendor. You were amazing guests and we had so much fun. Thank you once again! Warm regards from Tropical Splendor 🌞
Very nice owners, and a beautiful location.
Thank you Brian. We are glad you had a great time.
Stunning, breathtaking views, pics don’t do it justice!
Avi and the kids extended us with a warm Fiji welcome and she was available for anything we needed. My friend and I LOVED THIS PLACE! It truly was a “tropical Splendor”. We swam and played in the waves every morning, paddle boarded, kayaked and walked daily as well.
We kayaked up the river and it seemed as untouched as the time of dinosaurs and I half expected to see a brontosaurus grazing at the rivers edge!
To top of off, we saw a double rainbow and it ended at the cove point. We kayaked to the spot and literally sat at the end of the rainbow...... this capped off our amazing week.
I would highly recommend this house and Avi and Alex (who was out of town until the last 2 days). They , along with the groundskeepers and driver, never left us wanting for anything!
The definition of 5 ⭐️!
Thank you so much Lisa and Louise. It was a pleasure hosting you here at Tropical Splendor and we are glad you had a wonderful time. We hope to see you again one day!!! With love from Fiji.
