5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2010

Anybody going to Fiji should go here!! The Breakfast is one of the best you will ever have, Marilyn's Banana Pancakes are fab!
clean and comfortable rooms, a real home from home.
Beautiful gardens and great views out towards Wakaya.

Our three night stay was made all the better by the kind and friendly hospitality, that John, Marilyn and their staff extented to us.
The exellent location of the homestay makes it easier to access the town and surrounding area's.
As for the famous breakfast well what can we say? It was everything and more then we were told , its worth a trip to Levuka just to try the tomatoes (just ask Russell).
Thanks again for everything you did to make our stay so enjoyable.

We came here by accident and loved it! Beautiful staff and gardens, so quiet and peaceful. Leluvia was also a very nice island experience.

We have just spent four of the most magnificent days at the Levuka Homestay. From beginning to end, Marilyn and John were the perfect host and hostess. We have never been made to feel so welcome anywhere else in the world. The legendary Marliyn breakfast is not a legend - it is real! One of our breakfasts lasted three hours as we ate and chatted our way through delicious homemade muffins, pancakes, passionfruit butter, eggs anyway-you-want-them, and gallons of great coffee. John was a mine of knowledge on Levuka itself and was able to point us in the right direction for all our needs and wants. Knox took us on a fabulous walk where we met a whole range of local people from the youngest to the oldest. La and Matilda looked after our lovely room and tidied up after us. Helen and Tau at the Whale's Tail Restaurant fed us in the evening and catered to our taste and Mary Darling kept us up to date with the local news. Levuka - the way the world should be! Thank you to you all for the most wonderful experience.

My wife and I have just returned from six nights at Levuka Homestay and have nothing but the highest praise for it and our hosts John and Marilyn. The accommodation was first class - in cleanliness, comfort, convenience and location (What? You expected all aliteration?). I can only concur with other reviewers here about the quantity and quality of Marilyn's breakfasts which negated the need for lunch on each occasion. The couple are also pleasant company and a fount of knowledge about the island and its history. On the rare occasions that we were not out and about discovering Levuka we spent time on the shaded comfortable deck area reading books from the surpisingly large and interesting selection on their shelves. My wife and I would definitely recommend this accommodation to anyone who was thinking of going to Fiji's old capital.

We spent just one night with John and Marilyn over Christmas in thier immaculate, beautifully run guest house on the beautiful Fijian Island of Ovalau and felt completely at home and part of thier family.

From the friendly greeting and welcome drink on arrival, to the magnificent home cooked breakfast the following morning, we cannot fault any aspect of our stay ot the Homestay. The staff were very friendly and helpful - even rushing down to the quay after we checked-out to bring us some belongings that we had accidently left in the room.

The rooms are spacious and spotless. After our previous few days on a remote island with no hot water, the hot showers at John and Marilyn's were the best thing in the world to us.

People have already commented on Marilyn's breakfast and we won't add to those comments, other than to say everything that has been said is 100% true and a stay is worth it if nothing else other than to experience one of the best breakfasts that you will ever have.

Levouka is well worth a visit, but make sure you stay at the Homestay - we promise that you won't be dissapointed. We almost booked into the Royal Hotel and are glad that we didn't - The Royal is known as the Oldest Hotel in Fiji for one reason and that it is Old (and in need of a refurbishment).

Levuka Homestay is a special place ...beautiful, purpose built accomodation located in a lush hillside setting overlooking the ocean in the historic and friendly town of Levuka, which is reason enough to travel to Ovalau. But the reason Leuka Homestay is exceptional is because of the hosts - John and Marilyn and their staff team - who are truly interested in their guests, provide exceptional personal service, and whose knowledge and love of Fiji - its people, history, culture and natural beauty- are contagious and shared so easily and openly with all their guests. Levuka Homestay ranks with the very best of b&b's/guest homes that you will find anywhere in the world.
