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.

A Magical Fijian experience
We are travelers, we dont do resorts and when we travel we want to learn and live much like the locals. This house has both worlds, a beautiful house with amazing views and a staff that will help you learn the ways of Fiji. Eseta is the real star of this property. As a manager she was there to assure everyone and everything was satisfied. The minute we arrived she hugged us and helped us get settled. Her husband also drives a taxi took us into town and helped us shop at the local markets. She arranged for a school and village tour and when I asked her if she was interested in cooking for us she was more than happy to. She cooked us three nights of amazing fijian food. When our ecotrax tour got canceled she helped us pick a waterfall tour that we loved. She is a special woman, always willing to teach us about her culture and patient with all of our questions. We also had her and her husband try to cook a traditional lovo, unfortunately the ground was just to wet so we did it on the oven and grill. That night was a highlight of.our trip to share with Eseta and Nico and enjoy a kava ceremony with them. We enjoyed Fiji so much but I would say it was because of the Fijian Star and Eseta. Thank you. For those who want to know more about the house, its beautiful the landscaping is amazing and the views never get old. The two bedrooms are high quality and the kitchen has everything you could want. I really can only say wonderful things about this house.

Amazing few days in paradise
We had an amazing few days in this beautiful Fijian home. We were greeted by our wonderful house crew, Esstee and Pisa, to a beautiful sunset with a view of the Pacific Ocean. Fabulous location close to many delicious local restaurants, access to nearby resort The Hideaway Inn, and many opportunities for local cruises and day trips, booked through Rosie’s next to the resort. Rooms are large, clean, and comfortable. Great communication with owner- we would recommend and come back! We did the Ooh LaLa day cruise booked through Rosie’s, which was phenomenal. Tip: it can be noisy from the street; consider brining earplugs if you are a light sleeper.

Perfect holiday home for families
Our stay here was magnificent! The lovely housekeeper Eseta made us feel welcome and had the house absolutely spotless each and every day. Pisa the caretaker keeps the gardens looking beautiful - what a lovely gentleman! The house is absolutely beautiful with high quality furniture throughout. 2 huge bedrooms - each bedroom with 1 Queen, and 3 singles - comfortable beds for at least 10 people. Each bedroom has its own bathroom. All cooking facilities (first class appliances) and utensils are provided, all you need to do is the shopping (check out the markets for the freshest food). If you ask Eseta she will gladly go shopping with you and cook you the MOST AMAZING Fijian dishes! Eseta is a wealth of knowledge about Fijian culture and history and she also knows the best places to buy good quality souvenirs. The view is spectacular from the large balcony, the beach only a few minutes walk away. Guests have full use of the pool down at the Maui Bay Clubhouse. The house is located on the beautiful Coral Coast and things to do are close by. We highly recommend renting a car so you can get out and see and experience everything.

This villa was extremely comfortable, with the most amazing views. It was well equipped and beautiful. Eseta was the most gracious hostess. Ten out of ten.

A Coral Coast Gem
What a wonderful discovery! From the moment we arrived we felt completely relaxed and at home - so much so, it was hard to drag ourselves away to explore. The wide smiles of Lolo, the magic housekeeper / hostess, Pisa, the gardener and other temporary workers ensured us we had made the right choice. Set in a well-maintained tropical garden this home is spacious, very comfortable, beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean. The kitchen is well supplied with quality cooking utensils while there are plenty of games for wet days. Set high enough above the road to catch the cool breezes, from the front deck we whiled away many hours admiring the 180 degree ocean views . The location at Maui Bay is very central for exploring the Coral Coast or enjoying other activities. It was interesting to do this sometimes by using the local bus. Lolo was an excellent hostess and an excellent source of information on all things local.

Beautiful, peaceful home overlooking Maui Bay.
This holiday home is a beautiful home overlooking Maui Bay. We had a great experience from the booking enquiry, the booking, communication and instructions before we arrived and the warm greeting from Lolo, the housekeeper on arrival. The home is gorgeous and spacious and the kitchen was great. There were loads of utensils and great quality linen. The house is presented beautifully with quality furnishings and beautiful floral arrangements. The garden is beautifully kept and we enjoyed the fruits of the garden - sugar cane, bananas and papaya. Lolo made us feel comfortable and cared for even when there were teething problems with an electrical outage on our first day - there are lots of torches and candles in the home and then some gas issues which affected our showers. This was sorted by the next working day and we improvised with bucket baths for a day. We didn't mind though because it all added to the experience and the bathrooms are first class. The beds were comfortable - we had a great sleep once we worked out that we had to completely shut the shutters to block out the noise of the motorway down the road and the waves of the beach. Lolo and her husband cooked us a wonderfully fresh seafood dinner (at extra but reasonable cost) and a Fijian Lovo that was adapted to our taste given we don't eat pork or beef. Lolo made sure my vegetarian mum was catered for as well with a delicious yam curry. My boys still rave about Lolo's Fijian roti. She is a great hostess and an asset to the home. We had a very comfortable and restful stay.

Thank you for the review, Glad you had a great holiday, apologies for the power and gas problems. Power is somewhat and issue in Fiji at the moment with outages. We hope to address this with a generator. The gas problem has been solved. Yes, Lolo is a great hostess (our Fijian Star) Lovos are a must and along with Lolo's husband Bill (a chef at the Warwick Resort)and Pisa we are pleased that they were able to cater to your needs. We also love Lolo's roti. Thank you for staying at Vakaviti Kalokalo. Vinaka

Home away from home
This is an an excellent find on the Coral Coast. From the booking process, to the service provided by the staff, it was a wonderful experience. It is close to supermarket, servo, restaurant, bottle shop. There is also a hire car in the servo if you want to explore the area. Fresh fruits and vegies are abundant in little road side markets and if you need a fe luxuries, there is the Naviti resort and Hideaway resort where you can purchase some last minute things like sensible shows to wear to the waterfall at Biausevu. However, I recommend you pack this yourself when you travel as they are at resort prices. Sigatoka is 20 minutes away if you want something else that the local supermarket doesnt stock but you wont need to. You are treated like royalty here away from the hustle and bustle of busy resorts. Take advantage of having a lovo cooked meal by Lolo the housekeper, her husband who is a chef at the Warwick resort and the gardner. Most delicious meal and I would recommend you do the shopping for this yourself. Ask Lolo for what to buy. Lolo also cooked us amazing Fijian meals. She really is a gem. I recommend this for a quite laid back holiday.

About the neighbourhood
Fiji's Coral Coast – “Where Tradition, Culture & Nature Meet” The Coral Coast in Fiji is one of the most sought after tourist destinations in the Fiji Islands. With most of the resorts located directly on the beachfront, including some of the popular hotels, Hideaway, Naviti, Warwick, Outrigger, Shangrila and many more are close by. The Coral Coast in Fiji begins several kms south of Nadi Town with beautiful scenery of sugarcane fields, pine forests and amazing views of the South Pacific Ocean. The coastline is a combination of bays, beaches, coral lagoons, rocky outcrops and mangrove forests – from these, steep hills rise sharply into the nearby mountain ranges.
Getting around
BUSES are the way most locals get around, so if you want to enjoy an authentic Fijian experience this is the way to do it. Buses offer regular services. Time tables available at the house. CAR is a good way to explore Viti Levu at you own pace. Book your car before arrival. We can make recommendations for local car hire.To drive in Fiji, you'll need a valid driver's license from an English-speaking county or an international driving permit. TAXI, If you don't want to take a bus or hire a car, taxis are virtually everywhere. Local taxis are at the supermarket 2 minutes walk. Best to negotiate a price first.
Access
Car not needed
How to get there
Turn right when you leave the Airport, travel toward Suva along Queen's Rd. and when you reach Sigatoka continue along Queens Rd. You will pass several villages; Korotogo, Malevu, Vatukarasa and Namada. It is 4km from Namada to the Hideaway Resort. The next village is Tagaqe. From Tagaqe to Maui Bay East Road it is 3km. Maui Bay East Road is on your left coming from Nadi direction just after passing the supermarket/service station/restaurant. There is a small sign on the left on Maui Bay wall, turn left and about 100 metres along Maui Bay East Road turn right into Rainbow Drive. Another 100 metres on you left you are at Vakaviti Kalokalo - Fijian Star.
