Maravu: Island-View Luxury Home
Ref: OV888

This gorgeous fully-furnished home is ready to walk in and enjoy!

Situated on 1.4 acres of fully-cleared freehold land, with manicured yard and landscaped gardens, this 1,250 square-foot home, completed in 2007, and extensively refurbished in 2018-2019, represents an exceptional value Turn-Key property.

The property is located just 15 minutes’ drive from downtown Savusavu and only 10 minutes from the local airport.

Enjoy breathtaking views from the 900 square feet of covered deck. A wide veranda covers the entire sea-facing length of the home, providing 180 degree water views of the Koro Sea: looking from the tip of Taveuni Island in the east, to Koro Island in the south, and to evening sunsets over the Savusavu Peninsula in the west. The home also has a sitting veranda facing north, for those really breezy days, which looks out to the mountain side and forest.

This 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom home has a walk-in closet in the master bedroom. Each air-conditioned bedroom has wood and glass French doors opening out to the oceanview deck.

The open design kitchen includes all modern appliances, granite-top island counter, solid wood cabinet doors and tons of lighting. From the adjoining “great room” enjoy spacious views of the nearby reef and Koro Sea. Remote controlled ceiling fans in all of the main rooms and on the main deck, and additional air-conditioning in both bedrooms, enhance the ocean breezes that cool this tropical home. The home has environmentally friendly Bamboo floors throughout, with white tile floors in each bathroom.

All the internal walls are drywall and recently painted, as are the ceilings in the bathrooms and bedrooms. The ceiling in the kitchen and great room is tongue-and-groove native dakua timber, which has a nice light color.

The utility/laundry room adjacent to the kitchen has a walk-in pantry along with a modern washer and dryer, and has a laundry drawer and cabinet with utility sink. All doors in this home are solid mahogany and the door and window trim is solid Vesi hardwood. The decks and main entrance steps are also made from Vesi hardwood.

The home itself has a strong pole-construction framework set into concrete foundations, and has experienced two Cat 5 Cyclones with no damage. 

A stone retaining wall gives the graveled driveway a pleasant approach and classy appearance. Enjoy unobstructed views, as all of the services (electrical and telephone) are buried so that no transmission lines are visible. The house has excellent, high speed 4G Internet connectivity, and has voice coverage from both of the cellular network providers. A satellite TV dish and decoder is also included with the house.

The property is situated within Maravu Estate, a high-class private residential estate, in which the other Lots are all owned by expatriate retirees or investors. Maravu Estate is close to Koro Sun Resort and Namale Resort, at which the Maravu residents can enjoy resort amenities such as fine dining, scuba-diving, kayaking, and golf.

The property is in a quiet secluded part of the Estate, at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac road.

The roads within Maravu are maintained by the Estate Owner-Manager, as is the water supply, which is spring-fed "original Fiji Water" reticulated to the Lots via a pipeline from the Estate reservoir, which is also maintained by the Estate Owner-Manager.

The home has a high quality (30-year guarantee) 5000 litre water storage tank, which was purchased new in January 2010 and which provides pressure water to all outlets in the house via an on-demand electric pump.

Another feature of the home is that its power set-up is entirely self-sufficient. The owners spared no expense in having the home converted to “Off-the-Grid” electricity supply, with a total solar power installation completed in 2019. Ample solar panels on the roof; deep cycle solar-power batteries under the house; a state-of-the-art Inverter mounted in the utility room in the laundry; and the facility to easily switch back to Grid power at any time, make this home power-ready for any situation.

Other recent upgrades by the owners include:
Resurfacing of the bamboo floors in 2018
Newly painting the exterior and interior in 2019
Refurbishing the 20-25 foot long French doors in the Great Room in 2019
Upgrading of the concrete car port and turn-around area in 2019
Completely refurnishing of the home with Tommy Bahama Furniture imported from USA
Importation of high-quality exterior deck furniture from USA, which is specially coated to withstand the tropics and high humidity.
Installation of a 20-foot secure container on the property for storage and backup.

The property has a variety of mature palms and tropical fruit trees including mango, avocado, papaya, banana, mandarins and limes, as well as pineapple plants which bear delicious sweet pineapple fruit.

Terraced garden beds near the house provide a ready source of vegetables, herbs and leafy greens. Surrounding the home are flowering hibiscus shrubs, tropical flowers, red ginger and red bamboo as a focal point.

A gravel pathway near the house leads to an open thatch-roof viewing “bure” (booray) which looks out to the nearby islands and over the Koro Sea: an ideal breezy shady area to relax during the midday sun, or for evening drinks watching the sun go down in the west. Further up the pathway, another pole “bure” with a swinging day-bed adds a whole new meaning to “tropical relaxation”. Both “bures” were built new in 2019.

The home is offered fully-furnished, as seen in the displayed photos. A detailed list of all furniture and items included with the sale of the home is available upon request.

The owners have instructed the Agent that the property must be sold.
