The entire two acres are fully landscaped and feature the colors of Taveuni which is know as the Garden Island of Fiji. At the northern end of the boundary is a water course which over the millenniums has been carved out of lava flows and in periods of heavy rain in the mountains the stream turns into an inland waterfall which is spectacular to view. There is a Fiji thatched Bure on a rock formation which was built to view this phenomenon and also enjoy a sundowner as the sun sinks into the sea, an amazing sight.
