Savusavu is a haven for yachts so why not enjoy the calm waters of Savusavu Bay.

Dining: There are a number of excellent restaurant options available from tasty curries to fine dining.

The House of Bamboo is located in an area known as Lesiaceva, a short stroll from Cousteau Resort and approximately 6 kms from the township of Savusavu. Set on the tranquil shores of Savusavu Bay. On Fiji's second largest Island, Vanua Levu. This area is known as The Hidden Paradise, cliche-ish but true. Here you will experience true Fijian hospitality and really feel like you are somewhere off the well trod tourist trails. Some say that Savusavu is reminiscent of parts of Hawaii well before it became what it is today. Savusavu can be accessed by air from Nadi with Pacific Sun. There are also regular ferries from Lautoka and Suva. Once you arrive you can relax and unwind or arrange for fishing, diving or sailing charters. Maybe even visit the local Black Pearl farm or just laze around and rediscover the art of relaxation. Airport pick up from Savusavu airport is included in your tariff, as is a provision starter pack and free local calls and wifi broadband internet access.

Other Activities: lazing in your own hammock, sleeping in an outdoor bure or just taking a dip in the pool.wn private pool

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We moved to Fiji from Australia, and lived in Savusavu for 7 years, we are now living back in Australia, our two teenage children are now completing school and university. What a change from going to school in sleepy Savusavu to then move to Sydney (Newtown).

Why the Owner Chose Savusavu:
We loved the the view from this home and fell in love with the town and it's friendly community. We arrived on a holiday and then moved to Fiji and became part of this very special place.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We lived in the House of Bamboo for two years before it became a holiday rental and loved swimming and snorkelling directly out front. We could pick our own tropical fruit from the garden and could easily access Savusavu township and Cousteau Resort. Protected from the Southern Trade Winds the point always feels protected but still enjoys a breeze from the eastern side. The sunsets from the balcony are always something very special, as are the brilliant starlight nights.
