Ever dreamed of packing it all up and moving to your own private tropical oasis? Well start packing, because for the same price as a basic family home in the suburbs you can own your own designer beach villa on the pristine shores of Fiji.
Auberge Beach Villas is the largest ever property development of its type in Fiji and marks the first stage of Nanuku Ocean Estates. Offering land from just AUD$550,000, your very own designer beach villa can be yours for just AUD$681,000 - about the same price as your typical family home in the Melbourne suburbs. Those with a little more cash to splash can snap up ready-to-move luxury homes from AUD$3.1 million, which works out to be around the same price as a small apartment in inner Sydney.
The Agency, a Sydney-based real estate group, has shaken things up by adding Fiji villas into the mix, bringing a new tropical twist to their luxury property portfolio. Adding tropical villas to his repertoire is not too much of a stretch for selling agent Reece Coleman, who is known for his multi-million dollar listings in the exclusive Sydney eastern suburbs.
The owner occupied beachside villas boast their own private plunge pools and enjoy access to facilities at neighbouring Fiji resorts including 'villa Mamas', in-house chefs, butlers, a gym, day spa, yoga classes and a 'kids club'. With only 9 per cent of Fiji's land available as freehold and an even smaller fraction of that land being beachfront, this is an opportunity not to be missed.
Owners having access to a fully developed and complete premium resort is something not ever offered for sale before in Fiji. It's the first time the high calibre Fiji lifestyle has been made available for foreign purchase and it offers excellent value, with the ability for owners to rent out the property through the resort when not being used as their own private holiday home.
The neighbouring resort will offer a management service for property owners which will clean the premises and restock the pantry prior to arrival as well as taking on the leasing of the property for short or long term stays when the owners are absent.
Like most real estate, it all hinges on location, location, location and Mr Coleman assures potential buyers that the location of the development is a prize in itself. Nanuku features a private airstrip just 30 minutes by air from the Nadi International Airport and only 45 minutes from the nation's capital, Suva. Just five minutes from Pacific Harbour, Fiji's President has his own summer house just next door to the project and the famous Fiji Rugby Sevens team trains just minutes away.
Pacific Harbour features a large expat community where many Australians, New Zealanders and Singaporeans choose to settle down. The region also offers some spectacular scenery and some exciting activities including jet skiing and shark diving.
