“AMAZING HOLIDAY!!! Didn't want to leave”
Reviewed 18 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

If your looking for a fantastic Holiday then you have found the perfect place. We have just got back from 8 nights with a large group of friends for our 40th Birthday celebrations. We saved so much money staying here rather than resorts. The house is exactly like the photos. Heaps of room for our large group. The staff Stanley and Farisha won't let you lift a finger. We have left thinking of them as really good friends and were really sad to say Goodbye. They made our holiday so exceptional. Nothing was a problem. 8 Days of no cooking or cleaning left us only time to relax and enjoy each others company. The house is perfect, even in heavy rain you can still relax outside in the Hammocks or laze around inside listening to music. The beach is about a 5 minute drive away, although leaving the house was always a big decision. Resorts were so noisey and expensive when we did venture to them, we couldn't wait to get back to the house. You must have dinner at the Eco Cafe, pizza on the beach at sunset.
Every part of our holiday was easy. Lots of fantastic communication with Cam at the Amazing Accomodation website. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about it. I highly recommend this property and we will definitly be going back.

“A super holiday home!”
Reviewed 25 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016
2
people found this review helpful

The house is in a wonderful location, with stunning views and is well/fully equipped. The staff were fantastic and really made our stay! The male staff member was a lovely guy who could not do enough for us - Mr Fixit!. The female staff member never stopped - very attentive but in an inconspicuous way and always smiling. We loved her!
It was a little noisy at night when making nocturnal visits to the bathroom but that was due to the tiled/concrete construction of the house.
It is quiet in the Maui Bay area and somewhat limited in options unless you want to just chill by the pool. The 10 minute walk down to the jetty is fairly pleasant and swimming/snorkelling is good here at high tide. A car is essential if you want to seek out other activities (Eco park, waterfall, Sigatoka market, Eco cafe, fishing trips, etc.). You can use the nearby 'resort' facilities but these are like anywhere else in the pacific. The Warwick is posh but quite expensive (for food/drink). Stop at the Eco cafe for lunch/early supper as its in a great spot and more down to earth and quite quirky.
Be prepared to see poverty outside of the the resorts and the up market holiday home areas! It can make you feel uncomfortable so, try and support the local (Fijian) businesses whenever possible. One of the staff members will shop for you at Sigatoka market where fruit, veg, fish and meat can be bought at very reasonable prices. If you have a car, its worth the experience to join him for this trip and he is a mine of information about how the economy, etc. works. The local supermarket (bottom of hill) has basics but is at least 30% more expensive than Sigatoka town and probably 50% more for a (limited) selection of fresh fruit and veg. There's an ATM and petrol station here too.
There's a lot of building going on in the Maui Bay area - in ten years time it should look a lot more complete and will undoubtedly be a really up market place to rent a holiday home. It would be nice to see more 'local' bars and cafes offering simple meals cooked with fresh veg and fish.
One minor irritation (unless they know where it is): local taxi companies /car hire have no idea how to get to the property. After the flight and journey, you just want to get there rather than wasting half an hour going up the wrong turnings. We appreciate why the owner wants it to remain secure from unnecessary 'visitors' but some kind of directional signs would be useful and prevent delays.

“A week in heaven”
Reviewed 24 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

I can not express how different this week was in our trip to FIJI. My husband and I went with 5 adult children (aged 19-25)., As I have never stayed in a place that included staff it took me a whole hour to get used of having someone cook, clean, wash, tour guide, etc,etc for me. The staff made the stay! The owners have thought of everything when it comes to staying on the coral coast.

“Super Spot and Exceptional Service”
Reviewed 21 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We had a bit of an adventure before we got to the house due to flooding in Nadi but Stanley kept in contact and was very supportive. The house is simply stunning with a full panorama of the Coral Coast. Stanley and Farisha look after your every need. You tell them what you would like for breakfast and they do it. We preferred to let them suggest things and explore the local cuisine. Fresh roti, Mexican style breakfast, pancakes with glazed bananas and paw paw, succulent curries and seafood are just some of the delights we had there. Stanley does the shopping and you should bring any alcohol from the duty free except beer. We did some fishing, played golf, enjoyed the infinity pool and read a lot and played some cards. Fully refreshed at the end of the break. We were absolutely spoilt during our stay and we will definitely be back. This was a great Fiji experience and quite different from the normal resort type stays. It actually works out cheaper and lots more private. If you want to indulge and have a great time with friends or family put it high on your list!

“Heaven on Earth just Fabulous.”
Reviewed 18 November 2015 for a stay in May 2015

My husband and I had the most relaxing invigorating holiday at this stunning property, The views are spectacular and you can enjoy the view ovrelooking the ocean while enjoying breakfast on the deck or just relaxing in the loungers by the pool.
Stanley the amazing chef went out of his way to accommadate requests, He made delicious breakfast lunch and dinners and only uses freash ingredients in all his cooking.
Short walk to Maui beach and shops if you want some exercise!!!
We experienced every thing you would get at a resort in regards to rooms being made daily babysitting etc if required, but the point of difference was it is a far more personal and special experience if it is just 2 of you or if you go with friends.
Get ready to have an experience you will never forget, I say just book it .
I plan to be back for my 50th!!

A fabulous styley villa combining Fijian style with modern comforts. Stunning views across the reef- stay home and be pampered by Stanley and Shalvina or explore the delights of the Secret Beach - just minutes away- snorkel the amazing coral reef below you. Villa is beautifully equipped and furnished - cool linen and Wifi/Sky ( if needed). Transfer with Immies Tours or hire a car from him to go a little further afield. A taste of real - and very beautiful Fiji. Go!

“Top Notch”
Reviewed 26 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This place is fantastic. We absolutely loved our 5 days at Tropical Bliss, saying it was awesome is an understatement to say the least. It was Top Notch on every level.

The house itself is strong, a sexy statement perched well above the beach with a calming stillness that’s comforting yet staged for serious panoramic views of the Coral Coast. By day it is mesmerising, by evening something quite magic happens, stunning sunsets.

We didn’t leave the house for the entire stay; there was no need to. (only to swim at the beach 2 minutes drive away). Swimming reading lounging all day topped off at sundown with deliveries of Pina Coladas from the divine Stanley (our personal cook, barista, cocktail maker) for the week.

Stanley made the week, with surprising treats poolside, local fruits, smoothie’s and delicious breakfasts, lunches and dinners prepared with the freshest local ingredients, herbs and fruits from their very own garden. I was super impressed. I definitely recommend you ask for the caramelised coconut pancakes for breakfast they were so delicious I had them three times.

The rooms are spacious, super comfy beds, gorgeous bathrooms, this home has been well appointed, got the Fiji vibe, without being ostentatious. All and all very well considered. The staff were very helpful and friendly, big smiles and light on the earth, not in your face.

I am taking my children back this October can’t wait. Top Notch.
