Savusavu cottage description

The Legend of Millrock Island comes alive for every guest that visits the small island. Here the copra millers son each year planted a coconut tree for his lost love. When one day he returned to find a lone figure on the beach he was reunited with the girl he had dreamed about each day. To celebrate their reunion he planted two coconut trees on top of the island in front of the small house he had built for her. Today coconut trees he planted while waiting for her still line the beach and the two trees stand at the top of the island as a sign of true love.


This solar powered eco-retreat features a small eco footprint with just enough luxury amenities, It is fully furnished with coconut wood furniture using tropical design elements. It has a working kitchen with an attached bar top for taking meals. The king bed lies next to the bar and is separated from the sitting room by a coconut wood divider. the sitting room features a flat screen TV and cable, and will accept USB drives for viewing movies. The covered veranda has plenty of space for entertaining a few friends or just enjoying the sunset with your partner. There is a back deck and a seaside deck as well to start your snorkel adventures from. The white sand beach is also a great place to relax and enjoy the water. Near the beach is a natural pool with currents providing a jacuzzi-like effect. At low tide the water recedes and forms a small pool not far from the jacuzzi, trapping little tropical fish like a natural salt water aquarium.

The cottage has a solar powered lighting system and a back up generator. A small shop nearby sells some basic staples and fresh fruit and veggies can be had from the local villagers or brought from town. Daily housekeeping is optional. A list of activities and resources will be provided and English speaking help is never more than a phone call away.
Activities available include, kayaking, snorkeling, diving, jungle treks and hikes, waterfall tours, swimming with dolphins, village tours and kava ceremony and lovo supper, herbal walks, reef walks, town visits, night clubbing, yacht club, river rafting and more.

Overall it's just a lovely place to go and getaway from it all and relax and enjoy a really unique Fiji experience.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2012

                      Why the Owner Chose Savusavu:
                      Mill Rock Island is symbiosis with nature. A small island with coconut palms and native shrubs it breathes the changing of the tide. Fish come and go. The ocean fills the river along the mangroves to the Salt lake. The cows that belong to Romulus or his horse 'Beauty' graze on the coast. Combine a 3 night stay at Mill rock with 3 day stay at Lani paradise. See vrbo listing #511979

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      There is sunrise and sunset and a view of the lagoon and the flying foxes. There is a step down from the deck to the ocean.
