Jacinta is a wonderful, caring host and when you arrive the fridge is full of water, milk, eggs, butter . There are frsh flowers on the... More

Her niece Maria and her husband who live there are such amazing people and we're very good to us. Their laundry service is very cheap. Its 5 Tala a load and that includes them hanging... More

Me and a group of friends stayed here for 7nights in October and just fell in love the moment we arrived. What really attracted us had to be the fact that Jacinta was very on to it when we first enquired and answered all our questions via email before we had even booked - she really is a jem. The...

HIGHLY recommend staying here. Jacinta is the most gracious Samoan lady. Her staff are extremely friendly and helpful.........expect a large bowl with fruit, when you arrive. The grounds are fantastic and a daily walk around to see all the fruit and foliage that is there is a must. There's enough bananas to feed a village, the papayas are huge and... More

We wanted to get away from the tourist centers and spend time with locals and enjoy the tranquility of the tropical mountain area. We were delivered the best tropical fruit every morning and on Sunday were presented with a typical Samoan Sunday lunch meal that was so delicious. It went down well after attending Sunday morning church and was a... More

Stayed here to get some local content on our holiday instead of just resorts. Enjoyed the fresh fruit and food delivered every day, the biggest & best pawpaw of the whole holiday. Ideal accomodation if you have a rental car and are going out & about sightseeing (visiting the turtles) and visiting other side of island.

The girlfriend and I stayed here in late august/ early september. This place is beautiful. a short drive to downtown Apia but away from the tourist crowd. You get your own fale along with fresh fruit and vegetables that are grown on site. The fale consists of bed, tv, kitchen, and bathroom. We didnt use the TV but everything else... More

Totally chilled out and relaxing place to unwind,set in the beautiful foothills of the lush tropical mountainside. Accommodation was clean, comfortable with a true Samoan feel, while having all the comforts of home. The hospitality was great too....not to mention the beautiful tropical delights that grow on the property. Would recommend to anyone wanting to get away from the hustle... More
