“Happy New Year 2009”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2009

We were celebrating New Years Eve with our caring hosts Karin and Peter and other guests from Sweden. The view from the deck high above the Fijian waters is stunning. There was not much artificial firework but starting 2009 under the bright stars in the Southern Sky was one of the best things I ever experienced in all my travels throughout our wonderful world

It is often very cumbersome to travel around in uneven numbers. Two is perfect, four is fine but three typically seems to be uncomfortable for someone. Not so at Karin's Garden. The lodge has two rooms, each with their own shower, and plenty of space to spread out in either the rooms, the kitchen or the front porch. While the lodge does not host a beachfront view, just a quick walk away and a gorgeous deck awaits you with stunning views of the water below. A short hike down the way and a beautiful, secluded pocket of white sandy beach awaits you. As a dog person, Koda, the resident greeter, guard, tour guide and grounds enthusiast is happy to trot along side you and carry around his coconut husk in anticipation of fun. A big bonus in my book but could potentially be discouraging if not an animal enthusiast.

A three dollar taxi ride from the airport, the location is very nice, quite (as Taveuni tends to be) and the hosts are most accommodating. Very helpful and excellent chefs, they are quick to offer their services if needed but are respectful of privacy and intruding upon their guests. Only recommendation I would give, ask for the meal prices before ordering if your budget is tight. Otherwise, the new little grocery shop (and I do mean little, offering basic goods such as bread, butter, jam and eggs) is right across the street and the kitchen is well stocked to cook for yourself. You even find some games lurking in the drawers too!
