In one word stunning: the house, the location, the views. You don't want to leave

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the pod house for 8 nights and had a fantastic time The house has it all Breakfast on the balcony with awesome views across the bay, take your pick of two daybeds to have another snooze or read a good book, sit in a comfy chair by the pool, jump in to cool off, all in absolute privacy. Tom is always there behind the scenes to give a helping hand or advise if needed. We hired a car in town for two days and got to see some beautiful scenery and meeting the local people is a experience we'll never forget There are very few signs so getting "lost" is quite easy but people are very helpful and we always felt safe.

Keep in mind that Savusavu is not (yet) a touristy place, which we liked, and a lot is done the Fiji way: the "tourist office" in town was closed on Saturday and thought that we could make our own way to the rainforest reserve without them calling ahead only to find the place locked up and it didn't look frequently used. Plenty of shops and restaurants in town at very reasonable prices, shopping where the locals go, like the market, is a great experience. Keep in mind that this island has no real white beaches that come to mind thinking of Fiji islands, for great snorkeling or diving you will have to book a tour. For us the pod house was the perfect place to stay The booking with Bruce was fantastic, great communication and everything was as promised and highly recommend staying here

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our honeymoon stay at the pod house. The setting is just beautiful. Tom, the property manager, was a great help. The property is close to a great snorkeling location, and we enjoyed our long walk into town as well. We highly recommend the pod house for anyone who's looking for a romantic getaway!

What a view!

  • 5 of 5

Just as described. Perfect sunsets, swaying palms, secluded, private. Owners were away so we were met at the airport by Tom, their property manager. Awesome local knowledge. On hand daily if we needed anything. Taxi's to town, about 6kms away, are plentiful and cheap. The local food market is very good and well priced. The town is quite busy with lots of shops and super friendly locals. They don't pounce on you like they do in Nadi. You're left alone and they go out of their way to help if you ask. Savusavu is basically awesome! Thanks for a great week in paradise!

Best vacation home in Fiji!

  • 5 of 5

To make a long story short, the atmosphere is premier, clean and pristine, the new owners (Bruce and Jen) are so friendly and accommodating, and my wife and I will stay no where else next time we travel to SavuSavu. Overall, had THE BEST experience staying at the "Pod House". If you are coming to SavuSavu and want a top notch stay for a great price, look no further.

Survived the Category 5 Cyclone(Hurricane)Winston...No better place in Savusavu.

  • 5 of 5

What can we say.....from the beautiful Pod house with all its amenities to it's incredible structure that gave us the greatest stay and a sense of security when the Cyclone did a u-turn over Tonga and came back on the islands quickly. An extra thanks to Brad who helped us prepared and showed great concern for our was great to see him after the storm in town and his friends who gave us coffee and a phone to call anyone we needed.

The people of Fiji are amazing, resilient and always smiling. The day after the storm they had already cleared over 3 miles of road of debris trees and power lines. The town was getting back in order and the airport was being cleaned up to help the tourist leave if they needed to.

Of all our travels this was both the most relaxing and the most exhilarating to say the least. Brad and Therese were great and don't ever hesitate to stay in this great house and the great town of Savusavu.

Owner's Response: Dear Jeff and Barb What an experience you all had. The strongest cyclone ever in the Southern Hemisphere. Thank you again for being such outstanding guests, we were so lucky to have had you visit the Pod House and hope to cross paths again one day, in less windy conditions !!!! So very glad that you arrived home safely and that you saw the REAL FIJI in all its glory, as you said the Fijians are the most amazing people, always smiling , no matter what comes their way. They certainly are a great example of the way the world should be. Thank you again

The Pod House is located a short stroll from Cousteau Resort and an easy 10 minute drive to Savusavu township. Great snorkelling straight out front, easy access to Split Rock, a well known snorkelling paradise. Savusavu is a charming harbour town on Vanua Levu, Fiji's second largest island. A great escape where you will experience the real Fiji. A short one hour flight away from the main island and Nadi international airport.
