I visited this gem on a work excursion to Levuka and spent a lovely 3 days there and it comes as absolutely no surprise that Marilyn and John have gotten such glowing reviews as hosts. Not only is there home beautiful and very homely with the lush garden but they were super generous on their knowledge of Levuka and it was always a pleasure catching them during the evening for a pre-dinner chat.
It will definitely be Levuka's loss when they do decide to retire and move on. Highly recommend that you visit Levuka Homestay while Merilyn and John are in residence as there is no guarantee that the next host will be able to do justice to replicating Merilyn's beautiful banana pancakes and passion fruit butter. They sure made me want to return (and I intend to) with friends for a quiet weekend getaway from Suva :)More
