PREVIOUSLY OFFERED FOR $4.2 MILLION. NOW SELLING WITHOUT RESERVE! Take a deep breath and step onto the warm sand of a private, tropical island, surrounded by lush gardens, colorful wildlife, fragrant flowers and warm breezes. Walk among 100-year-old coconut palms and listen to the songs of tropical birds and the whisper of wind through heliconia leaves, as the worries and cares of everyday life slip away.

Bula! and welcome to Mai Island, a 32-acre escape with freehold ownership, located off the coast of Fiji’s second-largest island, Vanua Levu. Only 8% of all land in Fiji offers freehold ownership, considered the most secure form of ownership that also allows for the outright purchase of property by individuals residing outside of Fiji.

Serene, yet conveniently located, Mai Island is a short helicopter or seaplane trip – or a leisurely boat ride – from the airport in Labasa, which connects passengers from Fiji’s two main airports. Deepwater anchorage for yachts is found on the northeast side of the island, and those preferring to travel by private vessel can be tendered directly onto the nearly quarter-mile of beach on the island’s southwest coast.

Upon arrival, relax. Time flows differently here.

Mai Island is filled with natural delights, from a charming waterfall to a coral reef surrounding the island that offers excellent snorkeling. A naturally sparkling spring delivers pure, clean water, and two wells tap into a freshwater lake that runs from the island to the mainland. That freshwater sustains both the island’s current caretakers – a local family that has tended the land for generations – as well as Mai Island’s owners and guests.

Visitors can rest in a charming 1-bedroom, 1-bath cottage, as staff quarters are separate from the main residence. Mahogany trees dot the landscape and provide beauty and shade, as well as material from which to build a new, elegant villa (or bure in Fijian), if desired.

Infused with the history of Fiji, the island also boasts an archeological site more than 300 years old: the foundation of a chieftain’s home, which was surrounded by a hand-dug valley and wall to protect the important residence. Once the homesite was cleared, a path to a freshwater spring was discovered; this path ends in a 6-ft by 4-ft bath chiseled into the stone, filled by the spring above.

Mai Island is also remarkably self-sustaining and is planted with hundreds of fruit trees, including coconut, avocado, starfruit and exotic chocolate persimmons. This fruit, in addition to the bounty of the South Pacific Ocean and availability of local vegetables, ensure ingredients for every meal are available without ever leaving the island.
