This executive home is beautifully appointed, completely enclosed and fully furnished. We are semi-off-grid with solar power (battery and mains back-up), rainwater tanks, and our own plantation. Mango, banana, papaya and avocado are a few pleasures awaiting you. The main split level house has four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, modern and fully equipped kitchen, 60’ long verandah opening on to a dream deck overlooking the private valley. This house is ideal for family and especially numerous couples. The Main Dwelling: This split level home is set on a reasonably steep incline facing the northwest looking out over a small private valley. A beautiful modern kitchen opening onto the lounge room is surrounded by an enormous enclosed L-shaped verandah. Also upstairs we have the master bedroom adjoined by a full ensuite, another bedroom, full-size bathroom and laundry. Downstairs consists of 2 more large bedrooms, another full bathroom and spacious office adjoined by a reading room. The verandah opens onto a new deck that gives you the impression of being on top of a mountain. You will love to experience the brilliance of the moon in its fullness and the wonderful evening breezes; not to mention our local coffee in the early morning. Serenity, extreme quiet, very secure and insect proof.

4/5 Good

Loved the kindness of the people. John was great!
It’s hard to find a place big enough to House 10 adults. There were beds for only 9 so one had to sleep on the floor and the downstairs beds were small. It’s a very nice home and we adjusted well and had a great time. We loved sitting out on the large balcony in the cool of the evening a gazing at the glorious stars. We especially enjoyed the fresh fruit from the plantation tha John brought us.

5/5 Excellent

Amazing Property- Perfect for Large Family
Our large family group just came home from staying at this amazing property in Samoa. It is just minutes from downtown Apia and is nestled in the hills just above making it about 10 degrees cooler than staying in town. It was clean, well appointed and Tim and Maria are the most enchanting hosts. We felt so pampered with daily visits to check up on us, deliver fresh produce from their garden and a wonderful woman who tidied up for us. It was magical! We watched the glorious sunrise and sunset on the balcony- where we also did daily Yoga ( they even had mats for us!). We will definitely return again and cannot recommend this place high enough!

5/5 Excellent

me and the family really enjoyed our own space and quietness from everything There was plenty of space for 8 adults and 1 pre teen so everyone had space to themselves Maria and her helpers were amazing kind and helpful with anything we needed anything Loved staying here and we definitely come back or recommend the beautiful house to other visitors
