Rakiraki villa description

Nothing says relaxation like a hanging bed. Enjoy the view from your private spot in paradise as you gently sway with a stelar view of paradise.. Starfish Blue is on Fiji's vivid Suncoast- lush greenery and tropical hues. Honeymooners and couples love the master suite with 2 person jetted tub, and families love the three bedrooms and bathrooms and private pool. Adults traveling together enjoy the variety of things to do in this slice of paradise. The upstairs master suite is exceptional- hardwood floors, in-room jetted tub, desk area and covered deck with loungers. Downstairs, 2 smaller bedrooms each have a private bath and glass doors that open just 6 steps from the pool- the definition of a perfect room. From the garden, it's a short walk down the private steps to the blue water of the Pacific Ocean, where you can snorkel in the calm water. Starfish Blue is located in near Wananavu Beach Resort and driving distance to Volivoli Beach.


Huge Value- Resort Privileges : Hmmm, relax on the outdoor hanging bed, watch the tides change and the lazy boat traffic or take a day trip to a village in the interior? Maybe you want to float down the river in a bamboo raft, or hire a massuese for a poolside massage. Decisions, decisions. At Starfish Blue, you can also spend the day at a resort.
Volivoli Beach, which is a short drive away, is open 365 days a year and welcomes our guests- they have a sand floor bar, wooden dining deck with luxurious, leather furniture, pool with swim up bar, and a beautiful beach with gorgeous sunsets. For the price of a drink or a meal, you're part of the family. Guests enjoy free kayaking and the dive shop on premises.
Guests have full privileges at Wananavu Beach Resort, which is about a 5 minute walk from Starfish Blue. At the resort, you can join day trips, dine in the restaurant, relax with a cocktail at the bar and swim at the pool. Please note that Wananavu occasionally closes for private weddings.

Local Area: RakiRaki is a small town in Northern Viti Levu.- the main island of Fiji. There are 4 or 5 grocery stores, and an open-air market. Starfish Blue is in a quiet residential area adjacent to Wananavu Beach Resort. The region is lush, mountainous, with gorgeous views. The area immediately around the resort is rural.

The water is exceptional- we are protected by 3 islands, making the water during most times of the year as calm as a lake. It's the tropical blue, almost transparent water that you come to Fiji to see. Not all areas of Fiji are blessed with the postcard tropical seas that we have.

                      Absolute waterfront- private steps down to the beach. Relaxing, rural, quaint area- a photographers dream. This is one of the world's finest places to dive or snorkel. We provide masks and snorkels for you to use at Starfish Blue or to take with you on an excursion during your stay. The water is very calm here, as we are protected by 3 islands. You can take a leisurely swim down to Wananavu, where you can rest on the lounge chairs or hammocks. Enjoy dinner cooked by one of the local woman (fee applies, see our web site for menu) or eat under the stars at Wananavu while being serenaded by locals with a ukulele.

                      Other Activities: kite surfing, sea kayaking

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      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.
