“Absolute perfection!”
Reviewed October 23, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We stayed a week in this amazing cottage and felt at home immediately. Roy and Lisa are the perfect hosts and the quiet peaceful location was just right for getting to know Fiji. The nearby beach was great...we kayaked out to the reef and up the river which was unbelievably beautiful. The house is spotlessly clean and very well equipped...we cooked every meal and had everything we could have needed right at hand. There were books to read, music, great bird watching from the deck and even a substitute dog when we missed ours! Thank you Roy and Lisa, for one of the best rentals we have experienced anywhere.

“For those who want a home not a hotel!”
Reviewed October 6, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

My wife and I couldn't be happier with our experience at the guests home of our hosts Roy and Lisa. We needed to be close to Savusavu for a friends wedding but wanted to avoid staying in another cheesy over priced resort! The location is peaceful, the home clean and complete with washer and dryer (hot water shower) full kitchen, flat screen tv/dvd player with surround sound, wrap around covered lanai. This is a perfect spot for the those who dont mind cooking their own meals, but if you want to go out to eat, town is just 25 min up the road. Things to consider when booking this sekawa cottages...

- rental car
there are so many beautiful things to see and a taxi or bus gives you no time to pause and take it in. Get a 4x4 if you have a choice at the rental car place. Plus you will end up paying wayyyy to much in taxi fares getting around! you can find a 4x4 car for $120 fijian a day (around 80usd)

- Be a self-reliant activity planner
Resrots are great at filling every moment of the day with some kind of activity! there is lots to do, just ask your hosts, they will point you in the right direction, and even make a few phone calls to set up waterfall tours and cultural shows that come right to the house!
-if you would rather set up shop with a good book, this is perfect for you!

- Be ready to cook
The market in Savusavu has more than enough variety to make many yummy fresh meals from local produce and Fish. Lisa can also arrange for a local women to prepare Fiji-indian style cooking to be brought to the home if you would rather not cook or drive into town.

- Internet!!
yes, you are in teh middle of the boonies! but there is a cell phone tower that pumps a 3G signal which is fast enough to stream video. This is an extra costs, but just let them know that you would like to have internet and they will make it happen.

Roy and Lisa are lovely talented people, you gotta have a look at Lisa's jewelery work! Beautiful and affordable freshwater pearl work, and if you are lucky you can hear Roy pluck away on his guitar! I thought i was listening to a recording while he was playing!!!

Any further questions you might have about this spot, just email the owners! Can't wait to come back!!!

“See the real Fiji and one of the most scenic islands in the Pacific”
Reviewed June 30, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

If you are looking for a self contained cottage near Savusavu I can highly recommend the Sekawa Beach Cottage. The place is spotless and is set in a lovely tropical garden setting and is a credit to the owners. It is extremely good value for money. The local people are all very friendly and as tourism is not large on the island you feel more like a visitor and guest rather than a tourist. You can feel yourself slipping into Fiji time and slowing down as you explore the surrounding mountains and valleys ( some of the best tropical scenery in the world) , go to the local market for produce, visit a village, swimming, walking and kayaking.
The owners (Lisa and Roy) will make you very welcomed and offer advice on what to do, what to see and other handy hints with regards to Island life and customs.
We enjoyed our stay very much and the nine nights we stayed went very fast.

“Lovely Cottage & Beautiful Beach”
Reviewed June 20, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We visited in mid-May 2013. The cottage is beautiful and well maintained. The beach, which is just a short walk down the hill, has black sand. It was actually the nicest beach we saw in Savusavu. The others we visited all had a lot of coral, which was difficult to walk on without reef shoes. The black sand was nice and soft. We went for a walk on the beach with Lisa and her friend Marty and we were the only ones there! It was secluded and just gorgeous.

We wish we could have spent more time at Sekawa Beach Cottages! The owners, Roy and Lisa, are very hospitable and have much information to share about Savusavu and Sekawa Beach. They invited us to lunch with a group of their friends one day. That was such a pleasant afternoon. After lunch we played cards and visited with all of our new friends. They even sang us a farewell song in Fijian. My husband and I both had tears in our eyes when they finished.

If you're looking for a quiet, relaxing vacation in a spotless cottage amid beautiful surroundings, then Sekawa Beach Cottages is the place for you.

“Beautiful cottage and Good Value”
Reviewed March 30, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

The cottage is very clean and comfortable. Having a washer and dryer is a plus. The grounds are beautifully landscaped. Lisa, the owner, kept the cottage stocked with beautiful flowers from the gardens. Lisa and Roy, the owners, were very accomodating and helpful with their vast knowledge of Fiji. We used the kayak several times which was a real treat to be out on the water. It is close enough to walk to the beach -- a little steep coming back up from the beach, but a beautiful walk. The cottage is located close to the Fijian communities; therefore, you have the opportunity to visit with the local fijians ----observe a Meke ceremony, visit their community, do Kava, and take a trip to the waterfalls. Lisa and Roy are close by and want to ensure you have a great time while staying here.

“Charming Cottage in the Forrest/Jungle”
Reviewed June 16, 2012 for a stay in June 2012
2
people found this review helpful

This private well maintained and equipped cottage is especially appropriate for people who want to get away from it all and relax or for those interested in fishing, as it is somewhat isolated and about a 20 minute drive from anything even resembling a town (Suvasuva-which we found quite charming in itself), and the owners have their own fishing boat that you can charter as much as you want. They are accomplished fishermen and can really show you where the fish are.

The cottage is located next to the owner's own residence so you will feel like you are visiting relatives, as this is how you will be treated (assuming, of course, that you and your relatives actually like each other). The owners are probably the best reason to rent this particular property as they love to talk about their adopted country and island. They have lived there about 18 years so they are a real treasure-house of information, and are happy to share with you as much or as little as you would like.

This is not a "beach" location in that it is up a road a couple hundred yards from the actual beach and it's views are mostly of the lush tropical vegetation surrounding it. The setting is quite nice and peaceful, it just is not beachfront, if that is important to you.

This cottage is so well equipped that it would be particularly appropriate for long stays of several weeks or months, which can be booked at discount rates. It is really like having your own home in paradise. If you go on their VRBO website you can see a list of everything it includes- it is just too extensive for me to list here.

One tip I can offer you is about buying DVDs in the small town to both watch while you are here, and to take home with you. Coming from the U.S. we are used to paying 15 to 20 dollars for each movie, while in Figi you can buy the same movies of the same quality for as little as 50 cents U.S. You can also find many interesting movies that are in English but not available in the U.S. We went a little crazy and bought about 100 of them, many of which come 4 or 5 on the same disk. Amazing! They actually burn them while you stand there. As for taking them back to the U.S., who knows. There is also an extensive list of movies at the cottage that you can watch for free, along with some great music C.D.s.

We loved our stay here and would reccommed it to others, but it does require a car or long taxi rides if you want to explore the rest of the island, and I do not think it would be a good choice for people traveling with young children.
