We stayed at the Levuka Homestay for two nights in December 2009. The owners, John and Marilyn, were very friendly and hospitable and went out of their way to make our stay an enjoyable one. Originally from Australia ,John and Marilyn have adopted fiji as their new home and run the Levuka homestay together with their attentive anf friendly staff.
The Levuka Homestay is well located for exploring the beautiful historical town of Levuka with all of Levuka's sights within easy walking distance.
There are 3 guest rooms at the Levuka Homestay at the lower level of the house. John and Marilyn live on the top level. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable with a choice of fan or air-conditioning to keep it cool.
Each day began with a very long and leisurely breakfast filled with Marilyn's home cooking - homemade breads, chutneys, banana pancakes, jams, museli; a selection of fresh fruit, mostly from their own garden, followed by a cooked breakfast of bacon, sausage, eggs, tomatoes. As my breakfast normally consists of a single cup of black coffee, I generally had to follow breakfast with a bit of a nap. As Levuka is a very relaxing destination this is a perfectly acceptable option.
John and Marilyn also invited us for drinks on their patio; introduced us to some of the locals in the Ovalau Club and helped us organise trips and return transport to the airport.
Overall a very enjoyable, relaxing and interesting stay.
