About the Property

Tranquil 3BR/3BA on Reef, Outdoor Hanging Bed, Private Pool, In-room Jacuzzi

Nothing says relaxation like a hanging bed. Enjoy the view from your private spot in paradise as you gently sway with a stellar 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 in a totally private home.

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 hire a masseuse 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 or when it is at full capacity.

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. Very peaceful, great for a relaxing holiday or dive holiday or a very private honeymoon. Swimming (Pool and Ocean), Snorkeling, Diving, Walking, Boat Trips, Day Trips, Boat Trip to Island for the day.

The water is exceptional- we are protected by 3 islands, making the water during some 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. When the trade winds are in the humidity falls but the water can be choppy.

Amenities:: Covered hanging bed, private pool with cool spa, in-room jetted tub in Master Suite, private water access, laundry, full kitchen, maid 2 hours a day 5 days a week, access to Volivoli Beach Resort and Wananavu Beach Resort, scuba diving, snorkeling, indoor/outdoor sound system, DVD Player and TV, and wifi is included. Please note- the wifi is great for checking in and emailing, but not good for streaming videos or gaming. That's okay, you're in Fiji!

We've tried to include everything you might need to make your holiday more enjoyable. In addition to a fully stocked kitchen, including coffee maker, panini maker, blender, and other small appliances, we have all linens you will need, pool towels as well as bath towels and sheets for all of the beds.

Free crib/cot and high chair.

We also provide masks and snorkels for using in the water. We do not provide fins, as the area outside our house is rocky, so you will need your own water shoes.

We have an indoor/outdoor stereo system, with easy hook up for your mp3 players. We also have a DVD player with a small library of DVD's and Sky TV.

Car: Recommended

A true relaxation concept destination, with wifi. The best of both worlds.

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 (they are sometimes at capacity and closed to outside guests), where you can rest on the lounge chairs or hammocks. Enjoy dinner cooked by our two smiling maids (see our web site for menu) or eat under the stars at Wananavu while being serenaded by locals with a ukulele.

Volivoli Beach, about a 10 minute taxi ride away, is open to our guests 365 days a year. They have a beautiful natural beach and offer diving, kayaking and and sand "Voliball" court, as well as the best fish 'n chips in all of Fiji.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I'm a writer, speaker and fun person to hang out with. I spent 20 years (from age 5 to 25) living outside of Washington DC in Fairfax, VA. I went to Paul VI high school and graduated with a degree in psychology from George Mason University. I live in Asheville, NC and truly enjoy this funky, artsy, eclectic mountain town. I've been going to Fiji since 1999. A piece of my mind and heart are always there.

Why the Owner Chose Volivoli, Fiji:
I have been to 44 countries. I liked Fiji well enough, but couldn't find the blue water that I was looking for with all of the resorts at Denarau. 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. Denarau Island may have shopping and a Hard Rock Cafe, but I can get that at home. When I go to Fiji, I want palm trees, blue water and coral reefs as part of my every day.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
