About Martha Harman
I grew up in Suva, the capital of The Fiji Islands, and spent all my adult life schooling and working there. My husband and I with our son, immigrated to Sydney Australia in the late 1980's and returned to Savusavu , Fiji when my husband retired from work.
Martha Harman purchased this in 2007
Why Martha Harman chose Savusavu
The property was passed down to my husbands family through generations . The first Harman settled on Lesiaceva in 1874.

Perfect quiet Fiji hideaway
This house is as described, directly in front of Savusavu Bay. Just the street to cross to be on the small beach. You can swim at high tide but not at low tide. Low tide is perfect for kids to play on the beach and look for crabs in the rocks.
The kitchen is well equipped. There is hot water and electricity all the time. Buy bottled water or boil tap water.
The 2nd bedroom is separated from the main house by 2-3 meters. If you have kids, consider bringing a baby monitor to to keep in touch at night!
The nights and days are very quiet.
There is 5 buses per day to go to Savusavu. It is very easy to go to the market, the supermarkets and restaurants in town.
Jean-Michel Cousteau resort is just next door and very easy to go SCUBA diving with the dive center.
The owner leaves very close and the caretaker, Malty, is very helpful if you need anything or have any questions.
I would definitely go back.
Very nice, relaxing home.
Nice quiet location, located next to Cousteau resort. Accommodations are good, with air con in the master bedroom. The deck is a good place to relax while looking at the water. Good snorkeling right across the street. Kayaks also available. The housekeeper, Marti, is very nice and helpful.
Bay cottage with easy access to kayaking and snorkeling.
Martha and Arthur are great hosts; they were friendly and
responsive. Martha even drove us to/from the airport. Their rental is
right across the road from Savusavu bay where we enjoyed snorkeling and kayaking. The view from the large deck is beautiful. The cottage show signs of wear and you must expect insects since it is island living. One note: if you're sweet, bring deet.
Private Retreat Great Views!
My husband and I spent two weeks at this wonderful house that is about 5km from the quaint town of Savusavu. It’s easy to take the local bus that stops a few times each day except Sundays and holidays into town to pick up groceries and grab a meal. Purchase a pass for the bus in town as the drivers do not take cash. We would usually hail a cab to go back to the house (about $8 Fijian). Savusavu is right on the bay so quite pretty. The restaurants are low key and good curries are available at reasonable prices.There are a few local stores for purchasing supplies. Most of the shopping is local, but there are a couple nice shops with handmade items. I liked the one behind the market and there are a couple in the marina. The two bedrooms and baths are separate enough to ensure privacy for two couples. Bed was comfy..loved having AC in the bedroom..plenty of hot water for showers. We enjoyed taking the two kayaks out into the bay during high tide. You can see directly into the coral reefs and spot colorful fish. For walking on the beach you need footwear. The house has a good sized covered porch area for enjoying the view and all the activity on the bay. Remember to pack insect repellent. We got good use from the washing machine and clothesline. The inside is roomy with a two burner propane stovetop and microwave for cooking, and plenty of utensils, pots, dishware, etc. There is a nice selection of movies provided also. Highly recommend!!
Lived up to the excellent reviews

The property provided all the requirements for a comfortable and relaxing holiday. The location was outstanding with fantasic views of the bay, and access to the water just across the road. Malti the housekeeper and her son Raj were gracious and helpful.
Savusavu Bay has great spots for Diving & Snorkelling, also good fishing in the Bay and outside the reefs.
