About the owner: I'm a traveler and real estate investor. I work from home as a writer- the best gig in the world.
Why the Owner Chose Rakiraki: I have been to 42 countries. I liked Fiji, but it wasn't until I went to the northern tip of the main island that I fell completely, utterly, hopelessly in love. The beauty above and below the waterline is unmatched.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: Privacy- you feel like you're on an out-island as Starfish Blue is set on a point with a view of 3 island, but you have mainland conveniences-- power (with back up generator) and nipping out for groceries isn't an all day ordeal.
The hanging bed will erase any cares you brought along with you, and the pool is delightful, and unlike other properties, gets afternoon shade, so the water is cool and refreshing.
With 3 ensuite bathrooms, each room is private.
The master suite is sublime. Read on the covered deck, or relax in the 2 person jetted tub.
Granite counter tops, stainless steel dishwasher, and daily maid service make life in paradise a modern pleasure.
