Owner's reply:
First I want to say that you got for a very budget rental fee a wonderful new build villa for which you would have to pay in every other resort at least three times more!! You booked for 14 days, payed only a deposit and agreed to pay the balance upon arrival. As you didn't pay upon arrival we asked after four days for the balance payment - two hours later you left us!! You write in your review that you stayed in 24 (!??!) different places in only 3 month - means like in our case nearly exactly 4 days everywhere.....we won't comment but everybody reading this should think about this fact - very unusual holidays!! To come to your complaints: 1. People come to Fiji and the South Pacific because of it's untouched nature. Unfortunately also mosquitoes are part of this and nonspecific our problem. We have mosquito fencing on the windows and electrical repellents. 2. We resolutely disclaim that our rental villas are not as advertised. Nowhere in our advertisement is written that we have air condition in Villa Blue Banana. we are in the tropics. Air conditioning makes no big sense. We have high ceilings and two fans in Villa B. B. and lucky we are a little elevated and there is always a breeze and much less mosquitoes than other where! 3. Villa Blue Banana was absolutely clean before your arrival!! Beside this the maid comes twice a week to clean for free - where else you have such a service in a self catering holiday home?? If you had ants you must have not kept it clean during your stay. 4. We have Wi-Fi broadband internet access. There are 2 from the USA imported routers on our property. You can get access on the deck around Villa Blue Banana and also on about 4000 sqm of our property including the area around our two pools. Your complaint is unjustified. 5. There was nothing to refund - opposite we have been damaged by not getting the balance money for the time you booked. Beside this a only 3 month old Phillips Flat TV was damaged on the second day of your stay and we had to pay 380 FJD for the repair. 6. The day before you precipitous left us you booked for five days a rental car. If the place would have been so bad as you write you would not have rented a car to give him back next day.... People reading this should also read the other reviews we got. 7. We are in possession of mails of you where you ask to give deposit money back or you will write a bad review. There is a name for such things.... We don't pay for not receiving bad reviews - we tell the truth..... T. & M. (Owners)

Owner's reply:
I absolutely don't agree with your complaints. You say that we had loud construction works tiling and varnishing/coloring. Which loud disturbance you can have of varnishing and coloring in a 40 m far away unit??? Coloring and also tiling is a absolutely silent job. You say there was no Wi-Fi internet access. Fact is that on our property are 2 (in words two) of the best routers imported from the USA on which the same time can be connected up to 16 computers. Never mind we have no flat rate there is no surcharge and the service is free. We have to pay for your use and you used it a lot as I can see on the bill. Depending on the quality of your receiving computer, tablet or phone you can get the signal on over 4000 sqm of our property!!! One more of your smart statements is "the internet access was not worth the mosquito biting." Can anybody explain me the logical link between this two things and how you could get internet access if there was no access like you said before?? You are not really complaining you only want to make trouble. To come to the point. You write about passive aggressive behavior. Fact is that I got physical attacked of your husband when he had too much beer. Afterwards I didn't see your husband any more outside the house and you wanted to leave earlier. Never mind that in our cancellation policy is written that we don't refund no-shows and early goes I refunded you 50% of the rental fee for the 7 days you went earlier!! Perhaps you should read all the other reviews we got for Villa Blue Banana, the Pool Apartment and Villa Maracuja to see who and how we are.......
