We stayed a week with Peter and Karin as one leg of our round the world trip. Taveuni is beautiful and Karin's Garden is the perfect place to enjoy it.
We stayed in the only bungalow in their grounds; it was a good size, clean, well furnished and had everything that we needed. At the bottom of the garden is a good sized deck from which the ground falls away to the reef below. We spent most evenings there watching the sun set over the Somosomo strait between Taveuni and Vanu Levau, Fifi's second largest island. The 180 degree meridian runs up the strait and we joked about looking at "tomorrow" over the water.
Karin produces excellent dinners on request elegantly served by Peter. Both of them are very friendly and helpful and did much to help us get the most out of our stay.
We travelled by ship to Taveuni from Suva on the main island and went back in a small plane from Taveuni's tiny airport. We can throughly recommend Karin's - it has been one of the high points in our trip through Hong Kong, Adelaide, Auckland and now Rarotonga.
