Savusavu cottage description

Location, Location, Location!! Imagine relaxing on a beautiful secluded mile long beach all to yourselves! We are absolute beachfront. Our new holiday bungalow cottage with large private pool is located in lovely Sekawa Beach Estate, a small park-like estate hidden a half mile from the main road and tucked away along a mile long secluded beach on the north shore of picturesque Savusavu Bay. Take a step back in time and discover the tropical beauty and peacefulness of a 'hidden paradise' that most visitors never see!

Awaken to a chorus of tropical birds and gentle waves lapping just steps from your bungalow cottage. Gaze at the tranquil waters of lovely Savusavu Bay from your bed or take an early morning stroll along the long powdery soft sand beach to hunt for interesting shells. Enjoy a refreshing dip in your large 11' X 21' private pool or the shallow warm waters out front in Savusavu Bay. Take a peaceful walk through our beautifully landscaped tropical gardens and lily ponds and spy some of Fiji's most colorful birds such as the Collared Lory, Fiji Parrotfinch, and Fiji's rare Orange Dove. Snorkel at the many colorful coral reefs teeming with tropical fish just offshore around Savusavu Bay or kayak up the nearby Nasekawa River, floating past virgin jungle and small native settlements.

The rest of the day can be spent lounging on the large verandah or relaxing in our oversized lover’s hammock under the palms as the gentle breezes lull you into total relaxation. Enjoy a relaxing massage given out in the beachfront bure with only the sounds of waves & birds in the background. Take a nap, read a book or just watch the clouds drift by. Do as much or as little as you like! Our traditional Fijian 'bure' is the perfect place to end each day with 'happy hour' spent watching a spectacular sunset framed by the surrounding jagged volcanic peaks as the lights of Savusavu twinkle from across the bay.

Staying with us offers you the rare opportunity to personally meet the friendly Fijian villagers that often come to the beach to fish for their daily catch. It is a truly memorable sight watching a group of ladies fish with their large nets or float by on a bamboo 'bilibili' raft, just as their ancestors have done for hundreds of years. The ladies will be delighted to show you how they weave a basket, hat or fan from a palm frond.

Truly off the beaten path! Sekawa Beach Estate is located a scenic 12-miles (15 minutes) by car past colorful Fijian villages, from quaint little Savusavu town with its well stocked grocery, many shops, several restaurants, art gallery, handicraft market and a colorful open-air fresh veggie & fish market. The Savusavu Yacht Club and Copra Shed Marina are a favorite for visitors from around the world and the local community.

Amenities: Our beautiful beachfront cottage with 600 square feet of interior space and a 600 square foot spacious wrap around verandah is fully self-contained. Polished native hardwood floors and natural wood interior are decorated with authentic native Fijian handicrafts made by local craftsmen. The surrounding 3 acres of tropical gardens & pink lily ponds are maintained to resort quality standards. Complimentary snorkeling & sea kayaking gear available.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1998

                          About the owner: Originally from the high, dry desert of northern New Mexico, Susan (a scientific welder) & husband Jeff (a Civil engineer) decided to sell our small manufacturing business and drop out of the 'rat race' and live a slower, more peaceful pace of life. Since moving to Savusavu in 2001, we have become active in the local Rotary Club and have been instrumental in helping numerous schools & villages thru our charitable efforts.

                          Why the Owner Chose Savusavu:
                          As soon as we drove down the hill into Savusavu town from the airport, we knew we had found our new 'home!' We spent a lot of time looking for the perfect piece of beachfront property and were delighted to find a development on a secluded strip of powdery soft sand just across the Bay from Savusavu. Sekawa Beach is a quiet beach with only the friendly village ladies fishing off it with their large nets on a daily basis. There are no built up tourism services here, just a few expat holiday homes surrounded by nature and the sea.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          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.
