“Want to run away and just be?- this is the perfect place”
Reviewed 29 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed at the Bayside Bure for nearly two weeks and had a really lovely relaxing peaceful time. The bure was extremely well set up with everything you needed, very comfortable with amazing views out over the water and set in a gorgeous tropical garden. Town was a short bus or taxi ride away. Edward and Karen arranged for a driver Gopen to collect us from Labasa and he picked us up several other times when we needed him to and gave us lots of local info. Lovely Melia came to be bure several times and gave me the most amazing massages. We swam most days - the beach is so close and the snorkelling was great.
We thoroughy enjoyed our time in SavuSavu and staying at the Bayside Bure, Edward and Karen were really lovely hosts and nothing was too much trouble, thank you both very much for all your help with all the little details that actually make a real difference to a great holiday. We would definitely come and stay again if we get the opportunity and highly recommend it to our friends. Thanks again.

“beautiful beachside property”
Reviewed 14 April 2015 for a stay in July 2014

Stayed july 2014 as a couple.

This is a beautiful beachside property true to the photos well equipped, maintained and beautiful decor.

its a bit further out of town than we first thought a very long walk 40 mins-1 hour or you can get an hourly bus from the roadside (beware you may have to wait fiji time for the bus)

the beach is right out front and suitable for sunbathing or snorkelling but there is some sand creatures so recommend veturing to town to get a good beach mat.

we did have some problems with the owners as we arrived by boat we had to travel to town via taxi to get the key to find that they were at the property so had to get a separate taxi to the property (from town around $7) to a mixed reception (we wondered if we had offended them)

on our departure it was carnival time on viti levu and the taxi drivers had all migrated for the season and we waited by the road for the bus to town, at which point the owners just drove on by us (not the best hospitality).

despite the problems we faced, it is a very beautiful beachfront property, most relaxing and gorgeous sunsets - at a very reasonable price.
unfortunately for us we seem to have got ourselves by some mystery into the owners bad books and therefore won't be returning.

Management Response
8 May 2015
This is the first negative review we have received concerning our hospitality and we are really at a loss to know why we were considered to be unfriendly as we greet all our guests with the same enthusiasm and courtesy. We found this couple to be quiet and somewhat reserved - perhaps they viewed us the same way which is disappointing because we have had great conversations with other guests. We certainly do not recall passing them on the road without offering them a lift. The fact that the review has been posted some nine months after their visit has also surprised us however we are pleased to note they did enjoy our bure and the great location.

“What a deal”
Reviewed 3 December 2014 for a stay in February 2012

We stayed for a month in this simple but well located studio cottage across the road from the beach. The cottage had everything we needed to be comfortable and independent. The owners, Karen and Edward, were helpful and friendly. We went snorkeling every day and paddled the kayak that came with the rental. We walked to the town of Savusavu every few days for groceries, which took about 40 minutes, and took the local bus back to the cottage. All in all we had a lovely stay in this tropical paradise.

“Absolutely worth it!!! Perfect for the Family!!!”
Reviewed 21 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights with our 5-year-old daughter. We were initially very skeptic with the pics of the bure BUT to our amazement it was just too good to be true! For a very very affordable price, we had an amazing bure (more of a vacation villa for us ) facing the ocean, very clean and comfortable for our family of 3. We loved the view from our balcony and the kitchen had a a fridge and microwave plus a gas-stove to cook meals. Our go-to driver Ghopen was amazing and apart from the mosquitoes, my daughter absolutely loved trekking on the beach everyday around lunchtime to collect sea-shells! A great big "Vinaka" to Karen and Edward who answered all our questions and were amazing hosts! We wished we had stayed longer since we managed to stay well under our budget but have promised to return soon! Enjoy the pics (our favorite views and the road into Cousteau resort)
