The Green Lodge is 3 houses in an enclosed compound. One home has 3 bedrooms with ensuite and family bathroom, another has 3 bedrooms and one bathroom and another has 4 bedrooms with an ensuite and 2 bathrooms. We were a party of 18 (10 adults and 8 children) looking to stay for 2 weeks - we were relieved to find a place that could accommodate all of us and booked out the entire compound. It's definitely not a flash resort, but it's comfortable and definitely has a home away from home feel. In planning the trip, I was in contact with the owner to make arrangements and he was very accommodating and also gave us a discount rate for taking the 3 houses. He also threw in the Lodge van for $50 a day. The van like the Lodge is not flash - but it was what we needed at the time which was a people mover and we traveled all over Tonga in it. We were met at the airport by the caretaker who drove us back to the Lodge, showed us around and left us with his contact details. The caretaker and his family were accommodating, helpful and friendly and if we needed anything at all, they were a phone call away and came at once (that was one of the appeals of the place for us - we were looking effectively looking for a holiday home which this provided.) Pros: enclosed space so you could let the kids run around all day; plenty of space for everyone; great value for money; we essentially had the run of the place undisturbed so we could do our own family thing, have friends and family over etc; very approachable caretakers; close to flea-market and hospital. Cons: Access to the Green Lodge is via roads that are in dire need of maintenance; solar powered hot water in one of the houses meant no hot water on overcast days; not very close to town. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay here and definitely would stay here again.
