Nestled on the scenic Coral Coast of Fiji's main island of Viti Levu, just a 1-1/2 hr drive south of Nadi Airport, rests the luxurious Villa La Jolla. This exquisite beachfront villa sits on 3/4 acre in a gated community, surrounded by a mature forest of coconut palms and nearly 110 ft of beach that fronts a lagoon with snorkeling just steps from your back door. This property is ideal for families or couples seeking relaxation with private swimming pool and spectacular views, yet proximate to high adventure activities.
A custom- designed residence built in 2009, Villa La Jolla offers all the comforts of home in an extraordinary setting. Three elegant rooms connect to a spacious lounge/kitchen with panoramic ocean views. Two of the rooms are oceanfront while the third looks into a tropical garden. Each room is air conditioned and contains an ensuite bath with shower (Orchid suite contains a large jetted spa tub) plush king-sized bed, 42' flat screen TV with DVD player and ceiling fans. A covered walkway conveniently adjoins each room to the central lounge/kitchen area.
The beautifully appointed lounge is air conditioned and equipped with a flat screen TV, Blu-ray DVD and satellite TV. The large, state-of- the- art kitchen features palmwood cabinetry fabricated by Fiji's famous Pacific Green Furniture Co., modern appliances and ample room for family dining.
Just outside, watch the waves sweep over the reef beyond the lagoon while relaxing in the horizon- edged beachfront pool with jacuzzi.
Just returned from yet another perfect vacation in Fiji! Villa La Jolla did not disappoint. As is normally the case, the photos can not possibly capture the richness and beauty of this property. The house is spacious, stunning, and exceptional for groups that want to spend time together yet have plenty of privacy. The three bedrooms are their own oasis with great views and lots of room. The apartment style third bedroom even has it's own kitchenette to make up for the lack of Ocean View! Well appointed with plenty of extras, we enjoyed cooking in for most of our meals and took full advantage of the on property kayaks, paddle boards, and snorkel equipment.
We found everything to be in good working order. The pool and grounds were cleaned and the hot tub was great! The coral bay is your own personal aquarium and the water temp was PERFECT during our April stay. The bedrooms all have efficient air conditioners which made for comfortable sleeping at night, but we never even turned on the unit in the main living area, as the ocean breeze was sufficient!
Jerry, the owner, was quick to respond with any questions we had before our journey, and the booking process was a breeze.
1 BRING BUG SPRAY!! Having been to Fiji in November we were prepared. The mosquitoes are horrible in the evenings so be ready with bug spray or long pants/sleeves.
2 There is a highly recommended restaurant called ECO CAFE a few miles down the road with fantastic wood fired pizza, Italian dishes, and sits right on the beach. It's fun, friendly and the food was great, but three of our group of six ended up with a bad case of "travelers tummy" after eating there.
3 If you rent a car or hire a driver to take you to the property from the airport, have some Fijian cash on hand and stop at the Market area in Sigatoka to take advantage of the GLORIOUS produce at really low prices. They also have fresh local fish, and the bread shops are not to be missed! There is also a grocery store on your way out of the airport area in Nadi for all of your basic needs.
4. If you plan to purchase alcohol, buy it at the duty free shop right in the airport. You won't find it cheaper anywhere else, and the market across the street from Maui Bay is pricey.
I would not hesitate to recommend Villa La Jolla to friends and family. SO GO! Experience Fiji and stay at this beautiful home for your base. Thanks for sharing it Jerry! This flight attendant and her friends/family will definitely be back!!
We had a very pleasant stay at Villa La Jolla. The house is very spacious and extremely well equip with all you could need. Our cook, D, was amazing. D provided beautifully prepared meals and great recommendations on where to get our groceries (shop & save) and places to visit. We would recommend this to all of our friends and family. Thank you
We spent 5 nights in the villa and the location and outdoors is exactly what we wanted. Jerry arranged for a driver who we ended up using the whole stay (Tomasi 953-6954) and both the house manager and outside help were helpful during the stay. This is along the beach and about 20 min from several restaurants. This is a tropical location so bugs are as expected. We didn't have Dharna do any cooking as grocery shopping seemed as much work as just eating out. We did cook breakfast and made drinks and smoothies at the villa. We spent plenty of time in the pool and relaxing in the backyard. We used the kayaks and stand up paddle boards several times and life jackets are also provided.
Hard to believe our vacation has already come to an end. As many who have stayed before us have mentioned, the accommodations at Villa La Jolla are exceptional! We so enjoyed our morning coffee poolside, daily snorkeling and paddle boarding in our own backyard - which at times felt like our own private oceanside beach! And of course there were the dinners on the patio while enjoying the calm evening breezes. So relaxing.
We also truly enjoyed our daily visits with Dharna - our darling momma-to-be. She's a delightful house manager, event coordinator and cook! We so enjoyed getting to know her and learn a bit more about Fiji, its customs, people and places, and look forward to receiving pictures of her with her new baby come July!
Funny/memorable moments included daily visits from pups we affectionally named Skinny and Squirt - who adopted us (or the other way around)! The cattle drive we saw along the beach.... horses along the roadside... and stargazing in the evenings.
As for excursions, don't miss rafting the Upper Navua with River Fiji and as suggested in previous reviews, be sure to ask for Moses. He's a hoot! A snorkeling (or diving) trip to Beqa Passage - Nemo's Playground - is a must!
And though we didn't make it to the nearby Eco Cafe (closed Wed & Thurs), we had two exceptional experiences at restaurants located in the Warwick Resort - Wicked Walu (seafood); and Pappagallo (Italian & Seafood). Both our meals and the service were outstanding. In fact the wait staff at Pappagallo broke into song on our last night in Fiji with a song of 'farewell and safe travels' - a memory we'll cherish forever. (P.S. Todd... Posita says Vinaka!).
Overall this was one of the best vacations and Homeaway/VRBO rental experiences we've had. Jerry, we thank you so much for sharing your slice of paradise with us!

We were three couples that stayed for a week. From the time we first saw this listing it looked ideal for what we wanted. Jerry was helpful and responsive from the beginning. Villa La Jolla was even better than the pictures. The setting is amazing with the house configured with the three bedroom suites around the kitchen, living room and pool areas. It is beautifully designed with all the glass doors opening onto the patio. We made great use of the pool and jacuzzi. The beach is right there and we snorkeled, kayaked and used the paddle board in the lagoon. The house has beautiful stone bathrooms. Jerry even provided adapters for the plugs! We did the Upper Navua rafting trip which was a lot of fun. A couple of the guys did some diving near Pacific Harbor. The Maui Bay market is close and we walked there numerous times, but as others have noted, the prices are high and limited groceries. The taxis seem to always be there which was convenient. Dharna was helpful with information many times. We felt well taken care of at Villa La Jolla and highly recommend staying here! We had beautiful weather almost our whole week, despite the forecast for rain every day. Thanks Jerry for taking great care of us and sharing your wonderful place!
As soon as My husband and I walked into the tropical gardens of Villa La Jolla and could see the beach and pool right out the front,we knew it's was going to be a special holiday that we will never forget. Jerry has created a real home away from home with everything you need to make your holiday special. Good quality beds and pillows, fully equiped kitchen and friendly staff that make
you smile! Jerry is a great host and a real lovely person. We enjoyed two weeks of watching the sunset every night straight out the front. You can buy Australian and New Zealand wines across the road at the Maui bay supermarket. Horse riding on the beach and paddle boards and canoes that Jerry provides. The beach is filled with coloured fish and feels like you're swimming in a big fish tank. The infinity pool is stunning and warm enough to swim at night. We will be back for sure! Thanks Jerry,Dharna and Ashnet for an relaxing and rejuvenating holiday! See you again soon. ❤️😎🌴
