We recently stayed at Starfish Blue for 7 nights during May 2013 with our 2 children aged 6 and 11. What a wonderful spot - definitely the real Fiji! No tourists fighting for loungers in sight! We arrived at night so missed the lovely scenic views on the way in. We are from CHCH (post quake potholes common) but were quite interested to see where the rocky and bumpy 4wd drive road off the main road, took us!!! And wow did it take us somewhere lovely!! Our children loved the pool - the smaller whirlpool was perfect for our younger child to play around in. The children had their own bedroom with ensuite each, whilst we enjoyed the massive master bedroom suite upstairs. We had some great sleeps in the comfy beds. All the amenities right on hand including dryer, aircon and dishwasher (if need be!!) we didn't use the aircon at night, just enjoyed the sea breeze blowing through. Waking in the morning to the gorgeous sunrise was such a treat in this peaceful part of Fiji. A short walk to Wananavu resort led us to dine there frequently and enjoy the absolutely immaculate dining experience that they have on offer - exquisite food on a changing daily menu. We also made use of the resort's pool, hammocks and other facilities. The staff at the house were wonderful - the ladies cooked us up some lunch on one of the days (beautiful!!) Jai (manager) and staff were awesome - always punctual for transfers, and there if required. A couple of power outages led us to cranking up the generator which was very easy and not a problem. Beth was the most helpful property owner I have ever come across. We had booked nearly a year before travelling, so she fielded all my ridiculous questions extra well and replied super speedily. Beth has a great knowledge of the area and we discovered is well respected by the locals that know her. Soni at Volivoli spoke highly of her. We left Starfish for Volivoli which was where the family wedding was held. Awesome resort - well priced food and very cool place to visit about 15 min waterfront drive away. Well worth a visit too. The only negative I can think of is those tiny marching ants - so take some resealable plastic bags or make use of the plastic containers with lids that Beth has in the kitchen!! :) and problem solved!! Top notch, thank you very much Beth!

Jay and Bede,

What a delight it was to see this review! I enjoyed corresponding with you during the planning stage and am so glad it was everything you hoped for.

It's the best of both worlds- access to Volivoli and Wananavu and a private home stay with plenty of loungers- you're right- no need to stake out lounge chairs at sunrise.

I'm glad your whole family enjoyed your stay at Starfish Blue.

Warmest Regards,

Beth Carson

“Magical Views, Peaceful and Relaxing”
Reviewed April 20, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

My wife and I work in Fiji and managed to spend a few days away at Starfish Blue. The Villa was very clean, comfortable and comes with all the modern amenities necessary to enjoy a peaceful, luxurious and relaxing holiday. Whether waking up in the morning or relaxing around the pool the views are simply breath taking! You have all the cooking facilities at you finger tips so you do not have to leave the Villa, however if you prefer to eat out you are located within walking distance to Wananavu Resort or a short drive to Voli Voli Beach Resort, both are very reasonably priced. The worst part of our short stay was having to leave this Hidden Treasure, however we will definitely be back with friends to enjoy a longer stay.

Laura,

Thank you for the kind words! I agree, leaving is SO hard!

Wananavu is brilliant with weddings- I knew you would be in good hands, and I'm glad that everything worked out beautifully.

I do hope we see you again,

Vinaka Vakalevu!

David,

Aloha and Bula and thank you for the kind review.

I agree- I love Hawaii- the quieter North Shore on Oahu and the volcano on the Big Island. When I found Fiji- I knew this was the best of both worlds. The beauty of Hawaii with the culture still intact.

I'm so glad you enjoyed your time in Fiji!

Thank you for taking the time to review Starfish Blue.

Warmest Regards,

Beth Carson

Many thanks for the lovely review. Glad to know the beautiful staff took good care of you. One of the benefits of staying in a home is that you get to know the locals a bit better, if you want.

We hope to have you back, soon!

Thank you so much for the review and pictures.

Yes, Fiji is such a fabulous place. I have been to over 40 countries, but there's no where on the earth like Fiji for beautiful people and scenery.

Yes, the relaxation concept is hard to beat- it was the first place in the world I felt completely and utterly at peace.

Glad you enjoyed it and hope to have you back soon.

Warmest Regards,

Beth Carson
