Stunning Private Residence for Sale in Fiji
1 RESIDENCE · 5 GUEST BURES · CARETAKERS HOUSE · CHAPEL · WAREHOUSE · 150 ACRES WITH TWO BEACH FRONTAGES PERCHED ON THE RAINBOW REEF
While owners of the northern Fiji Islands generally keep a very low profile, there are a number of big name neighbours in this region - reportedly Mel Gibson bought a neighbouring island for $15 million in 2005, Jim January, the billionaire founder of Oakley, owns a home and resort in the area also and nearby a well-known island resort was founded by then owner of Red Bull.
The retreat is accessible via either seaplane or boat. A boat ride from Taveuni Island (nearest airport) is approximately 25 minutes. The property was constructed over a 10-year period by a Californian couple to enjoy with their children and grandchildren as a holiday home, but they now find they don’t get there enough. Navodo could be converted into a boutique hotel or maintained as a private retreat.
A main 465 square metre British colonial-style home sits at the centre, with a master suite, three en suite bedrooms and an upstairs children’s play area. There’s a huge open-plan living space downstairs, complete with large kitchen for entertaining, and spectacular ocean views from the adjacent veranda. It is filled with an eclectic mix of furniture imported from America and relaxed Melanesian items such as plantation fans made from local wood. The high ceilings, open living space and terrace give all the rooms a breezy feel.
There are also five separate two-level bures, each with a sitting room, en suite bedroom and indoor-outdoor shower. A hilltop chapel is also located on the property, and of course, plenty of quiet beach front, as well as a private jetty.
