Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Thankyou to Bill and Paula for a truly memorable holiday. My family of 5 had the most amazing time. Initial culture shock was quickly overcome and from airport transfers, full board and activities Bill will arrange it all. We felt at home, safe and part of the community. We promised the local children to visit again and we will. Vinaka to Bill and the entire village.

You will not regret booking with Bill. We spent 2 weeks here on Waya Lai Lai island and met the entire village. This is the perfect place to completely unplug. We swam with sharks, snorkeled all the reefs, went to a limestone cave, went to the island where they shot the movie Castaway for a picnic, did a sunset fishing trip, along with all the fantastic ideas that Bill and his wife Paula came up with in between. My family and I had such an amazing time and will have memories to last a lifetime. Travel is by fishing boat with an outboard motor so it is dependent on the weather. We had beautiful sunny days for our entire stay but sometimes the waves would be choppy so we would move activities around. I would highly recommend staying here and exploring this beautiful place.

True Fiji village experience
We stayed in the beach house with our 5, 3 and 1 year old kids for 3 nights. Bill and Paula are genuinely kind people and made our stay very enjoyable. Bill was happy to arrange activities and transportation for us, while Paula cooked amazing dishes. Do not expect an ounce of comfort, but it’s worth the true Fiji family and village experience.

Awesome place awesome experience.
Bill, his family and their village were wonderful. It was an experience of traditional island life. We stayed in a little bungalow right on the beach. The cooking was AMAZING. I would recommend bringing some snacks with you if you're a person who likes to snack but in the ways on main meals the food is delicious. Absolutely come and stay here! 3 days was perfect for us and our two year old son. Very child friendly! So much fun and we're completely relaxed after 3 days in paradise not lifting a finger!

What a beautiful experience! We stayed with Bill and Paula for three weeks. The house is situated up a hill from the beach. It is very simple but has a beautiful view of the ocean from the veranda. Paula is a fabulous cook, and we ate things like fresh island fruits, homemade breads, curried potato dishes, and freshly caught fish. Bill and Paula are very kind and hospitable people and hosts, and the villagers are all friendly and welcoming. The swimming right by the village is nice, but there is a really fabulous place by the sand bank about a thirty minute walk away. We went there most afternoons to swim, as it had crystal clear gentle waters and an excellent reef to explore with a snorkel. Great place to escape the blazing heat of the afternoon! The excursions to snorkel with sharks and to Castaway island are not to be missed! Lovely experience!
