Bula Vista! Fab architectural container living!
Savusavu, Vanua Levu, Fiji
Additional Location Information
We are based on a hill above the picturesque town of Savusavu overlooking the stunningly beautiful Savusavu Harbour on Vanua Levu, (considered by NBC to be one of the top 5 islands in the world to live on).
The area we are in is called Navutu or Navaqiqi and lies just south of town on the ridge between the harbour and the Koro Sea. We get a wonderful sea breeze most days, cooling our home. An indoor and an outdoor fan takes care of the rest of the time. We are not a sanitized resort, and we are not on the beach, but we do have great outdoor living and a spectacular view and we are very close to all the amenities in the lovely town of Savusavu.
Our 3/4-acre section has had the benefit of 10 years developing the tropical garden and we are screened from the neighbours with a clear view over the harbour. Our neighbourhood is a friendly local mix of families, couples, expats, Fijians, and Indo-Fijians.
Savusavu has numerous activities including some of the best snorkelling and diving in the Pacific, swimming, sailing, fishing, boating, golf, spas, pearl farm visits, kayaking, biking, bush and waterfall walks, bird watching, shopping, eating and drinking.
To get to Savusavu there are a number of options – sail here on a yacht (Savusavu has customs clearance and we get over 300 yachts a years coming through), fly to Nadi or Suva in Viti Levu and then take a smaller plane to Savusavu (1 hour), take a ferry (12 hours – cabin or seating) from Suva or Lautoka (a town a short bus ride north of Nadi), or fly into Labasa on the other side of the island and take a 1.5 hour taxi ride ($75-90FJD) to Savusavu or bus (much cheaper). Whichever way you chose it will be an adventure! However you arrive, let us know and we will meet you on your arrival with a taxi up to Bula Vista.
The temperature year round ranges from about 24-30 degrees Celsius (75-85 degrees Fahrenheit). We have tank water - 15,000 litres and town water as a back up. All the water is triple filtered and very drinkable. We are a 10 minute walk down hill into Savusavu and a 3-4 minute taxi ride back up the hill - $3-3.50FJD. The local open air market and supermarkets have a great range of fresh produce and things like olive oil and wasabi are easy to get a the MH Premium Supermarket. Sally runs Savusavu Wines & Spirits with a wide range of wine, beer and spirits as well as specialty foods.
Nearby you can snorkel, go diving in some of the best reefs in the world, swim, shop, eat out - (we recommend Surf and Turf as the best restaurant in town), hike to a local waterfall, play a round of golf, rent scooters or a car and explore, do a village visit or just relax and read a book...
