  • Beschreibung


    I'm located at Taveuni the famous Garden Island of Fiji. Please keep in mind: Taveuni is a somehow remote Island without much entertainment from outside however with the most friendly local people and stunning nature you can imagine.
    Since leaving the hussle and bussle everyday life in Germany, about six years ago, I have set up and realized a dream; a life close to the ocean, all year round pleasant temperatures, with off grid PV electricity and independent water supply. For guests and friends there is now a self contained guesthouse located on the same property available.
    The one acre land is sensitively used to produce organic food, medicine and other usefull crops. I love to eat wholsome healthy mostly vegetarian food from the own garden in which I grow meanwhile more than 150 (mostly tropical) plants.
    My interests are art, spiritual growth, alternative medicine, Qigong, of course gardening and creating an environmental friendly place for a harmonic existence with mother earth.
    Enjoying this little paradise means to me watching the miracle of nature, snorkling at the volcanic black sand/gravel beach (1 min walking distance), talks to share, exchange of ideas and knowhow, playing card or board games and marvel at the breathtaking sunsets which Taveuni is famous for.

  • Unterkunft


    On the 1 acre property I have built a fully self-contained guesthouse, simple furnished with a comfortable queen-size bed, basic cooking facilities, own bathroom and toilette and a large sea view veranda, one minute walk away from the beach.
    Just in case If the guest house is occupied by friends... there will be a guest room available in the residence with a private bathroom.

    Guests are welcome to join in the cooking in the main residence and sharing meals. In general I have a decent breakfast, during the day snacks or fruits from the garden and a cooked dinner around sunset.

    Scuba diving with dive operators (one is in 20 min walking distance) on the famous Rainbow reef, snorkeling from the beach, hiking on local trails, tours like Lavena beach walk, exploring Bouma national park water falls, natural water slide ....
    There is plenty of online information about Taveuni Island -

    Public bus transport is available however only once or twice a day. Taxi fares are reasonable priced.

    If guests are interested I can organize excursions or we might have some hikes etc.
