On a perch overlooking the calm, deep blue ocean, Karin’s Garden is located on a lush green acre, a slice of tranquility. You will not believe the views of the sunset over the distant speckled islands as the dolphins play on the sparkling ocean’s surface.  
Taveuni is a rare jewel located within one of the world’s four rainforests, Taveuni is unspoiled and uncrowned; featuring rich Fijian culture, lush green vegetation, the richest tropical fruits, magnificent nature walks to several ancient waterfalls (a swimmer’s delight!), snorkeling and diving at a multitude of world class colorful coral reefs, the freshest and tastiest local foods, and the most genuinely friendly people in the world... believe it or not (almost too good to be true!!), this is Taveuni: the garden island of Fiji.
German couple Karin and Peter Uwe Ronczka, dedicated to the beauty, serenity and peace of their garden paradise, offer one spotless and cozy bungalow-style bure, perfectly designed for a couple, family, or group of four.
 What cannot be understated here is the peace: at Karin’s Garden you are not at a resort, you have a private, quiet home nestled in the garden jewel of the south pacific. You will feel right at home amongst the scenery, culture, and blissful landscape.

On a perch overlooking the calm, deep blue ocean, Karin’s Garden is located on a lush green acre, a slice of tranquility.

We are within easy walking distance of local supermarkets, restaurants, dive and kayak rental shops and the Matei Airport (don’t worry; you never hear the planes overhead!).
