How do I find a place to live in Fiji?

We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered:

"Luckily through a friend we got onto a Fijian couple and we rented their kit home on 2 acres - we could not find anything on the internet for the area we wanted to live which was around the Sigatoka area," said another expat in Sigatoka Valley.

What is the average cost of housing in Fiji?

If you are thinking about moving to Fiji, cost of living in probably a key consideration. Expats commented about the cost of housing:

"Costs were lower. Our rent was good, markets provided our fruit and vegies. The real cost was buying red meat and getting good quality meat. Got to know our butcher who informed me Thursday was good meat day ! Laws dont allow us to buy housing in Fiji," said another expat in Sigatoka Valley.
