This apartment has 1 main bedroom with a queen and single bed, aircon. The studio type room has 2 beds as well. It's ideal for long term stays on Savaii Island. It has a hot water shower, fridge, coffee & tea making facilities, oven, washing machine and both front and back porch. A restaurant and bar is on site, a few steps away from the ocean and you get to use resorts kayaks for free.
Our location is unique and waterfront where turtles are wild and free. 100 year old dramatic lava flow formations surrounds our property. The area our property is on was reclaimed by the lava flow of 1905. Cold freshwater springs pop up between the lava tubes along the lava field. Plants have found their way between the lava cracks and have mostly covered the lava and provide shade and coolness around the property.
You'll be living in a village community and a site seeing or visit with the locals can be arranged by request with one of our staff accompaning you on the visit. Experience our life and way of living by participating in village activities eg sports volleyball, rugby or outdoor cooking like hot cocoa making or basket weaving etc. This will come free of charge and if you wish to donate something for the family you visit it is completely up to you but it is not expected. There's plenty to do and experience so become a local while you're with us. There's a pizza place 5 minutes drive from us and other great places to indulge in our local samoan cuisines.
  • Great view of the water and a safe place for kids to swim. Very friendly staff that assisted to any of our needs. Would recommend to anyone wishing to visit Samoa.

  • Very Beautiful , had a room right in front of the Lake.

    Ihipera2017-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • Really peaceful authentic Samoan experience in a village. Loved being on the lava fields. Food was expensive but the same ad anywhere in Samoa. Really enjoyed my stay, especially the very friendly lovely staff

    Judy2017-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Sesilia was extremely helpful and responded very quickly to questions. Make sure you take the kayaks out on the water early in the morning for a chance to see turtles of all sizes in their natural habitat!! The staff were helpful and friendly and took us to see the nearby lava fields too. We enjoyed ourselves and felt that it was great value for money.

    Mark2016-05-29T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome spot and great people

    Sam2017-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • This is an absolute pearl of a place to stay. The setting is stunning, staff friendly, and breakfast delicious. The kayaks and turtle spotting is a bonus!We couldn't have asked for a better way to start our holiday on Savai'i. We'll be back again when we are next on the island. Thanks again for a great experience!

    Tim & Morgan2017-06-05T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to stay with lots of room for our 10 adults and 2 toddlers- we booked 4 bungalows. The place was really clean and the hot water was great. We especially enjoyed the beach with the amazing deck to view the sunset as well as the kayaks out in the water. The hosts maintained great communication when I was trying to organise our group's trip and are very friendly and welcoming. Will definitely stay here again.

    Moana2017-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • We were warmly welcomed, taken to our room and then we just sat and gazed at the view of the lagoon! Gorgeous. We saw turtles most days, snorkeled, kayaked, but ended up mostly relaxing, reading, looking at the view. It was quiet while we were there, and that suited us perfectly as we arrived tired and needed a break, and that is exactly what we got. We left refreshed and relaxed. The staff were helpful, organised taxis, lent us an umbrella, even took us to church. I had the best pina colada, made with coconut so fresh because it was just picked! If you are looking to stay at the Sheraton, then stay at the Sheraton. If you are looking to enjoy a homely, relaxed, friendly island stay, then go to Savai'i and stay here. There are other resorts not far, if you want a change of scene, more nightlife, a different restaurant, just a short inexpensive taxi ride away. Unfortunately, the wifi wasn't working, so we went to other places for lunch or a drink and accessed wifi that way. Breakfast was a highlight, always with fruit platter and eggs and we enjoyed the chance to try different Samoan food that arrived! If we can, we'll be back!

    Talofa! Welcome to the luscious vibrant village of Falefa. Our Ensuite rooms are only 5 mins walk to Falefa Waterfall. Chillax at the half-way point between Apia & the famous Lalomanu beaches - join us for a swim across the roda where the waterfall meets the beach.
    "You lie on a mat in a cool Samoan hut and look out on the white sand under the high palms and a gentle sea, the black line of reef a mile out with moonlight over everything. And then amongst it all are the loveliest people in the world, moving and dancing like gods and goddesses. It is sheer beauty, so pure it is difficult to breathe it in." - Robert Louis Stevenson
    To enjoy and get to know the Real Samoa away from the hustle and bustle of town center Apia, you need to stretch out a little to the vibrant villages to get to the heart and soul of us Samoans. If getting amongst the locals whether it's fishing, canoeing (traditional canoes) in front of the waterfall (Falefa falls) and cooking your own food caught across the road is your idea of a holiday in Samoa? well you've clicked on the right Airbnb stay - a little bit history, just Wikipedia Falefa.
  • Senima Monty and Cousin Eddie picked me up the airport which is some drive from their place. It was really helpful to get a ride from them from and to the airport, actually they drove me around all the time. I felt like I was at my grandmas or my aunties house. They were always making sure i was comfortable, had enough to eat, offering drinks all the time, making sure i wasnt bored. They are really talkative and engaging but not intrusive and give you intuitively give you space when you want it. They are renovating their house ( but its not messy or noisy the bedrooms, bathrooms and dining room are all finished) so it will be even better in the next few months.

    Dustin2014-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful experience at Senima's. Fabulous host who looked after us extremely well. Breakfasts were amazing! Room fabulous. Location unique and beautiful. Highly recommend this stay for a true sense of village life. Thank you Senima's for your hospitality.

    Karen2016-07-03T00:00:00Z
  • Senima's house is bright, colourful and tastefully decorated. The en-suite bedrooms are off the common area. Senima was an attentive hostess and she gave her time to help us find our way around the local area. As with most places in Samoa you have to contend with barking dogs at night!

    Keith2017-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • Senima and Monty were very warm and welcoming, the house was clean and comfortable and they have lots of local knowledge about the island to share

    Tj2015-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • Wow. Where to begin! This is by far the best Airbnb we have ever stayed at across our many travels throughout Europe, America, the South Pacific and New Zealand. It was a genuine shame to have to leave. I have never stayed at an Airbnb where it felt so much like a home away from home, but here it is. Senima is the most wonderful person, and her food is beyond delicious! She cooked some traditional Samoan food for us from the fruit and veg in her garden, and we couldn’t get enough - again, the best food we’ve had on our trip in Samoa! Her breakfasts were exemplary, with more choice than two backpackers are used to (in a good way), and her traditional Samoan banana pancakes are the best. Plus there is a fabulous variety of fruits from her amazing garden - bananas, papayas, coconuts... If you are looking for the true Samoan village experience, then Senima’s place has it all in abundance. The home is a five minute walk to Falefa Falls, and a five minute drive to the Puila Cave Pool. She has so many tips and stories about local life and Samoan culture. The room itself was comfortable, homely and clean, and the communal areas are so lovely to relax in. If there is a place in the world I would travel to the ends of the Earth for again, then Senima’s place is it. Thank you so much for having us! We will back to try the restaurant when it opens!

    Jessica2018-07-15T00:00:00Z
  • I have travelled all around the world & never enjoyed staying anywhere as much as I have at Senima's! I was hoping to meet genuine people & experience life in Samoa but I experienced so much more than that. I have never met more caring and beautiful people than Senima and her Family, I adore her Niece who was kind enough to spend the afternoon at Piula Cave pool with me as I was traveling solo. The cave pools are 5 mins away and so are the beautiful Falefa falls. I have never been so relaxed and at peace in my life relaxing in my spacious bedroom with own ensuite and sipping a fresh coconut while wandering around the beautiful plantation out the back. I can not wait to come back to Samoa & see you all again, I will definitely stay longer next time!

    Aimee2016-06-29T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful village that was excellent for experiencing the real Samoan culture. Service was outstanding and breakfast large and delicious. Seminar was welcoming and wanted to really show us her place and village

    Liam2017-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • Senima is a great host who takes care of her guests. Her house is secure and clean. She provides a tasty full breakfast. She grows bananas, pineapple, cocoa, ulu, taro. Across the street is a nice place to swim. Senima's is a great find.

  • Stunning place to stay. We really enjoyed the atmosphere, the fake, and the view. We went for snorkeling, was really nice. We are thinking about going again because one night is too short! Thanks to all the family for the kindness. Clara and Hugo

    Clara2018-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed two nights and really wished we had stayed longer. The beach is incredible and the fales are right on the beach. We had two young kids and all of us had a ball.

    Esther2018-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • Wir hatten eine angenehme Nacht mit viel Meerrauschen im Hintergrund. Das Essen war gut und die Lage absolut genial. Auf jeden Fall eine Reise wert!

    Lukas2017-08-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had a really amazing stay!! Cant wait to be back!

    Rebecca2018-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • what can i say!! everything was sweet perfection. The fales are simple n perfect, the food is amazing, the beach divine (its a marine reserve, so great snorkeling ) the best thing was the warmth, genuine love and hospitality of Fiauu & Tavita their family and staff. So welcoming and helpful above and beyond anything you'd expect. Our bags arrived 5 days after we did. we were given clothes and a lift to town to buy an necessities. There is beautiful live music every night by the locals and two traditional Samoan shows a week, on Thursdays and Saturdays. not to be missed!! On sunday they cook a traditional lunch, food cooked in the earth, layer upon layer of deliciousness. Its fabulous to watch the intricate preperation and even more beautiful is sharing this delicious feast with the family and guests.. I highly recommend staying here.. We loved it so much we are going back again in a few days to spend our last days in Samoa here. It truly is a deeply relaxing, rejuvenating, soul enriching slice of paradise.. Thanks Matareva family..

    Sia2018-06-16T00:00:00Z
  • Matareva Beach is a wonderful place. We stayed in fancier accommodation in Samoa, but we enjoyed staying here more than anywhere else. The combination of a beautiful sheltered beach and cove, good snorkelling, attentive and friendly family hosts and good food are hard to beat. The fales are simple but comfortable enough for us and the outlook is superb. We would recommend this destination to anyone who values atmosphere, environment and genuine people more than typical urban comforts.

    Adrian2017-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • Head a great time at an amazingly beautiful beach location. If you’re alright with leaving the modcons away for a certain time, you can definitely find your peace and quiet here.

    Timm2018-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • If you like private beaches with very few people then this is the place for you. The beach and scenery are spectacular. The remote location lends to a rustic environment. If you arrange for them to pick you up at the airport hold them to it. We were left hanging with a no show ride and had to arrange our own transportation by getting a cab for a long ride and were over charged by the cabbie. They did promise to refund the over charge but that never happened. Aside from that. This is a fantastic place I would stay there again.

    This apartment is new with mountain view and hibiscus gardens surrounding. Cool breeze at the deck that soothes you on a hot day. Located 5 mins to city and 3 mins to the Faleata Sports Complex, roadside and easy access to transportation.
    Very cool and private. A home away from home. Main bedroom has air-con and the second bedroom has a wall fan.
    Samoan people are friendly, usually says hello and goodbye when you walk by along the road. Our neighbourhood is safe and secure.
  • The apartments are set in a quiet tranquil place alongside a small river, Sesilia's communication was superb throughout my stay and she was always on hand to help me with local information. Very good value overall, I would not hesitate to stay again.

    Matt2017-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Very close to the city. Was quiet and easy to get to apia lovely hosts very accommodating and affordable I definitely recommend.

    Frances2018-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Sesilia is a great host and her apartments are very solid. She was very responsive and quick to accommodate us at the last minute. She also did her best to keep the apartment up to par, even installing a brand new fridge when we arrived. The river behind the apartments is beautiful, but be careful because it is extremely slippery and can be dangerous to cross. My wife and I slipped and fell in the river and I lost my phone as a result. No one gave us any warning, so hopefully this is helpful for someone.

    Eric2018-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • I had a very good time there. Everybody was very helpful and nice.

    Norbert2016-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • Sesilia was a great host. The place was exactly as described. She decorates the place with hibiscus to welcome all visitors! For us, it was a bit challenging to find the location, as a few of the nearby landmarks (e.g., the primary school) isn't clearly marked. However, this isn't something that impeded our stay, just a general suggestion to use your intuition when finding this Airbnb.

    Erika2016-07-19T00:00:00Z
  • The house was a great base for us in Apia. Had everything we needed and was lovely to set on the wee back deck in the evenings. Was a little tricky tracking down the key as we arrived later than expected. Thanks for the nice stay, we would visit again if in Apia.

    Karina2016-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent stay, spacious apartment, hot shower and good working AC in bedroom. Great and fast communication with Sesilia & family. Pictures are accurate. Information map and amenities are a plus. Quiet area, private transportation or taxi's (cheap!) is necessary to get around. On Sundays almost everything is closed and people stay indoors so prepare food/drinks/trips in advance.

    Marlies2016-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you Sesilia ! Amazing appartment to start an amazing trip in samoa ! Highly recommand and the most : air condition in the room ;) thank you again for taking us to the rental car ! we wish you all the best !

    Live the Samoan way!!!! Traditional Samoan Garden Fale. Each Fale comes with floor mat, mattress, sheets, mosquito net. All our Fales have electricity and power points. Fales located in the garden overlooking the pool area. Great way to experience the Samoan way of living. Tropical breakfast included. Only 15 min walk from downtown Apia.
  • Close to centre and lovely garden area with pool. Recommend.

    Alex2017-06-25T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place where you can try traditional accommodation in fale. Big breakfast, swimming pool and fully equipped kitchen.

    Karel2017-04-12T00:00:00Z
  • After staying in the south of the island I wanted to be close to Apia for my last days in Samoa. The backyard garden fales were the right choice to do so. I felt very secure and at home during my whole stay and there is nothing like a morning jump into the pool on a hot day when the sea is not reachable - as Apia doesn’t have these beautiful easy accessible beaches. The fale itself was very big and had all as described and needed. The friendly chats with the staff added upon my stay. The only thing you should take care of during your stay - like in all Samoa - is to bring and use a good repellent while being outside of your mosquito net. Otherwise just enjoy the place and the nice cafés and bars close by.

    Leon2017-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • A great little oasis in Apia. Great place to relax and a nice location from which to explore. Free breakfast was a nice touch.

    Spencer2018-06-17T00:00:00Z
  • Had a good stay!! The staff was very friendly and helpful! Maybe more variety on the Breakfast will be great! Thanks!

    Jonas2017-06-03T00:00:00Z
  • Couldn’t have asked for a nicer staff. At the Outrigger, you are taken care of! Such friendly hosts and staff, filling breakfast, fresh air and clean linens on the daily! Close to Apia, convenient shop and restaurants are within walking distance.

    Betsy2018-04-04T00:00:00Z

  • We were fortunate to be able to visit Independent Samoa after working in American Samoa. Paul and Joan have created a special place in this beautiful part of the South Pacific. The property consists of 3 units (one being their home). We stayed in the large 2 bedroom house. Beautifully decorated, super comfortable! There is a covered outside eating area and the front has all glass doors that overlook the pool and grounds, view of the ocean too! Paul went to the fish market and gave us two kinds of fantastic fish, which we cooked in the gourmet kitchen. Joan was very helpful giving us ideas of things to see and do. While the north side of the island is bustling with villages, the south side is much quieter. Much of the island is growing bananas, papaya, taro and coconuts. We saw sheep, cows, horses, pigs and plenty of dogs and chickens. The Samoan people are warm and friendly. The children loved to wave at us and wanted us to honk at them. We spent one fun day in the city of Apia. The craft or "flea market" is a must stop. Most of the tourists are from New Zealand or Australia. Ifiele'ele Plantation is the best place to stay in Samoa and experience the real island. We stopped at a number of resorts but will return to Ifiele'ele if we can come back.

    Donna & Richard2015-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • World class authentic service and location. A culinary (certified organic) extravaganza with so much food grown on the Plantation. Paul and Joan know how to be the consumate hosts. The best place that we've stayed in our 3 trips to Samoa by far. You must stay! David, Chris, Nick and Kane.

    David2016-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful home with awesome views of the ocean. Paul & Joan are amazing hosts and very easy to communicate with. Their property is well maintained with all the amenities that will keep your group comfortable. Thanks Paul & Joan!

    Edris2017-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • The host canceled this reservation 16 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.

    Sista2017-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Joan and Paul are such amazing and warm hosts who go out of their way to make sure your stay in Samoa is great. Their house has everything you could need and want for any type of vacation. The grounds are enormous with fruit trees and vegetation native to Samoa. The athletic court and swimming pool are perfect. The large outdoor dining area - which is covered by a roof - is the perfect place to spend time with friends and family and soak up the warm breeze and fresh air off the ocean. The indoor living area and kitchen along with the bedrooms are clean and neat and quite large and are not lacking in any way. There is wifi and a/c along with a tv and game console to use. Paul is an outstanding chef and will gladly prepare food for your whole party that is tasty and locally sourced. He will even gladly prepare the fish you catch! Joan and Paul have connections with so many people throughout Samoa and can give you advise on where to go and what to see - make sure you take their advise - they will not steer you wrong. They will go out of their way to make sure your stay is enjoyable and memorable. You will experience Samoa the way the locals do by staying here. Our stay was 100% amazing and I hope to visit again!

    My place is close to Ta Sua, Trench, Togitogiga Waterfalls, Togitogiga National park and Coastal Walk, Nussafee Island, Snorkeling, Fishing and Surfing Spots. You’ll love my place because of the views, the people, the ambiance, and the location. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, families (with kids), and big groups.
  • Good value. Hard to get to unless you have a car. Ideal for surfing. Good food and worth it to check out the cave pool.

    Liam2017-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place in the village. View unique on a stunning beach. Nugg and all the family are very hospital and make your stay as nice as possible. Thanks again

    Guillaume2018-05-31T00:00:00Z
  • Very basic accommodation & facilities by the sea in a gorgeous setting.

    Dana2018-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • The location is fantastic, you can roll out of bed straight into the sea in the morning! The family is really friendly and the bar is a great spot to hang out and meet fellow travellers. The cocktails at the bar were delicious too! If you usually get bitten by mozzies a lot it's a good idea to pack bug spray.

    Sima2017-04-21T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay at Nuggs, it was very traditional and we loved the food that was provided. Nugg and his family were always friendly and helpful and we enjoyed the bar and beach on our doorstep as well as the peace and tranquility away from the busy town.

    Ruth2017-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • dave and nugg are great guys! the beach is quite nice, although there are better ones in samoa. the food was very basic, for me as a vegetarian quite boring... especially the breakfast. only bread, butter, coffee and sometimes fruit, that should improve. the fales are nice, directly at the beach. nuggs bar is cool too, great to have a beer or smoothie. the location is quite good since it‘s in the middle of a lot to do and see. overall pretty good for the price. thanks!

    Severin2018-06-08T00:00:00Z
  • Nugg and his team are very nice and helpful, that was the highlight of our stay. He was always available if we needed help, and we did, as my boyfriend was injured. Tafatafa beach is beautiful and peaceful. Concerning the accomodation, the fales looked a bit dead when we got there. Probably because it was low season… The bar was closed and full of rubbish, as abandoned. Didn't look as in the pictures. The showers and toilets were not well maintained nor really clean. The food was not good. Thank you for our stay Nugg, but overall, I do not think I would go back.

    Adèle2016-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • The location of these open beach fales is unbeatable. Right on Vaiula Beach, you wake up to the waves just beyond your door. The fale come with mattresses and mosquito nets, with tarps that you can roll down on each side. Nugg was a fantastic communicator who made sure we had enough mattresses and that the light was on so we could find our fale when we arrived quite late at night. Check in and check out was really flexible. Finding the resort can be difficult seeing as there isn't a specific address you can put into GPS. You need to look out for the 'Vaiula Beach Fale' sign and turn into that driveway. Drive down for 5-10 minutes until you get to the end of the road and then you are there. It might also be good to note that there is no longer a connecting road between Brenda's Beach Fales and Vaiula Fales, despite it looking as so on (Hidden by Airbnb) Maps. We tried and it has since been closed. Breakfast at the fales was basic - bread, butter, boiled eggs and bananas, but that was perfect for us. Lunch at the bar was delicious and affordable. We recommend bringing your own water as they do not sell water there. They do sell coconuts though. A lovely guy named Sonny lives just on the edge of the fales. You can hire stand-up paddle boards from him, and he also takes tours through a lava tube to a cave pool. We really enjoyed the tour and the water was so cold and refreshing! When we arrived at night we were a bit scared of the dogs running around (as most dogs in Samoa are not domesticated), but we found in the morning that the dogs were owned by the owners of the fales and were super cute and friendly.

    7 self contained 1 bedroom cottages, in a secured compound facing the Pacific Ocean. Situated 5 minutes from Apia and 45 minutes from the airport, the tranquil charming atmosphere of the Cottage's make them a unique stay in Samoa. Tropical gardens with spacious lawns invite a restful retreat for families or the lone traveler. Swing in a hammock, soak up the peaceful beauty of the environment, enjoy a swim or go snorkeling amongst spectacular marine life at the near by Palolo Marine Reserve.
    We have a total of 7 self contained one bedroom cottages/bungalows in a secured compound facing the Pacific Ocean. Cottages are serviced daily with 24hour security.
    In the evenings we have a 15minute "Sa" (curfew usually 6.15pm - 6.30pm) where we are not allowed to walk the street or swim; as this is the time where we have evening devotions and prayer in the village of Vaiala.
  • Moala and Rosa are the most friendly and helpful hosts I've stayed with. The cottages are well equipped and a nice location in Apia. I would definitely recommend staying here.

    Jodie2018-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • I spent a really good night and the place is wonderfull, close to the sea side. The bungalow is clean en very confortable. I'll surely come back !!!

    Max2018-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • The cottages are great value for money and close to Apia town. A 5 min walk down the road is Palolo Deep- a marine reserve worth visiting for fantastic snorkeling! We found this place a great base while visiting Apia and our hosts were friendly and helpful- Thanks for a great stay!

    Mark2018-05-26T00:00:00Z
  • This place has amazing value and offered a great central location to experience Samoa from! The ocean is a 20 second walk away, the heart of Apia was a mere 10 minute walk. Rosa and her family were incredibly friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about local places to go. Would most definitely stay here again next time I visit

    Paul2018-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • nice and big cottage, friendly people there. you have to be careful with the dogs around there. take a stick or a stone with you at night.

    Sandro2018-04-26T00:00:00Z
  • Moala & Rosa are extremely responsive, knowledgeable, and kind. Thank you.

    Dawn2018-04-02T00:00:00Z
  • We spent our first two nights at Viala Beach Cottages and enjoyed our stay. Good value for a self contained cottage with ceiling fans, power and hot shower. The cottage was clean and cosy. The setting was quiet and private - 5-10 minutes walk from Apia town., with buses and taxis passing regularly. The outlook to the ocean wasnt the tropical beach setting (concrete seawall over the road), however the snorkelling and sealife was cool and free kayaks were available. Apia was good to checkout for markets, shops etc for a day or two, or if you have a car -this is a great base to travel from. Moala was a great help to us, with advise, info and suggestions for our time in Samoa. A true example of the sincere friendly and kind Samoan people. Thank you for being part of our happy holiday experience.

    Alison2018-08-01T00:00:00Z
  • Though the start was a bit bad ( no WiFi available, not really being given the correct information by the lady at the property) it turned out to be a nice trip. Moala and Rosa drove me back to the airport as the shuttle Arrangements by them didn’t work out. The only time I could actually really talk to them.

    The Fale, inspired by traditional Samoan design, is a modern home with open kitchen/living space, 3 bedrooms plus loft. We are semi-off-grid, have solar power with battery and mains back-up, rainwater tanks and our own plantation.
    The Fale was designed with traditional architectural influences of Samoa, hence the dome shaped roof with interior exposed beams and unique handiwork. The main living space features a modern kitchen with all amenities including breakfast bar and dishwasher. The master bedroom contains a queen bed facing an arch of floor to ceiling louvred windows, all fully meshed with mosquito screens. The ensuite contains a bath as well as shower. Downstairs are two single bedrooms with their own entrances and a shared bathroom with shower. The large loft space above the living area contains 3 single beds or can be used for a day hangout area. The stunning deck overlooks the gardens and plantation whilst the kitchen has an undercover porch with laundry and toilet adjoining.
    The Samoan Highland Hideaway- Fale Samoa is located in the hills above Apia, about a 20 minute drive from the great places to eat and drink whilst you're here. There are waterfalls nearby, amazing beaches within 30-40 minutes, nature walks, art galleries, and easy access to the airport (40 min drive) and port if you plan on going to Savai'i (recommended). We are nicely isolated down a dirt road, so all you'll hear are the birds and geckos, no traffic or street noise at all. A real retreat location for some time out.
  • We loved our stay at the highland hideaway! It was everything we wished it would be. It was safe, clean and extremely comfortable. Tim was a wonderful host. We would love to come back!

    Suzanne2017-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Tim met us on arrival with a huge basket of fruit and veges that tasted superb. He gave us a tour and my goodness, the house structure was amazing! A cool loft situated upstairs with 3 single beds, a main bedroom and ensuite in the main area, indoor outdoor flow with a surrounding deck, outside toilet for entertaining, downstairs had a bathroom and toilet with two outside bedrooms. Both bedrooms had a cool breeze, one with double bed and one with two singles. We had 7 people and for two nights didn’t use one room. Tim was quick to respond and very helpful. He even provided us with extras and was happy to give us things we forgot like salt and pepper etc - fantastic host who goes out of his way. The beautiful staff onsite were up early cleaning and super friendly. Dogs and cats live on the plantation and to my surprise were very friendly and easy going. Never any trouble! Tim suggested taking sharp knives as you could imagine an island does not always have what you need but we managed quite well without them. There is no tv but that was a blessing as we really enjoyed each other’s company and time spent there. The views, birds and land were one of a kind and breath taking. Tim, thank you to you and Maria for allowing us the opportunity to share your beautiful home. It made my birthday one of a kind special! I could not fault anything :)

    Alcyone2018-04-02T00:00:00Z
  • We didn't stay at the fale but at the main house, which for sure doesn't have the charm of the fale, but is very complete, clean and spacious. It's location is for sure away from the 'busy' Apia area, but you need a car. Sita and Tupo, the ones maintaining the house, are great and very friendly and helpful.

    Sascha2016-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • My two friends and I stayed here for three nights and we had a wonderful, peaceful holiday! The area is very secluded and the garden is beautiful. At night we were cool and comfortable thanks to the high, domed ceiling. Sita and Tupo were so kind and helpful and made us feel very welcome and right at home. They brought over fresh fruit for breakfast and gave us great advice on things to do around the island. Would definitely return!

    Emily2016-04-30T00:00:00Z
  • beautiful, quiet location. comfortable, clean and well equipped home, the kids loved sleeping in the loft. about ten mins from good supermarket but large fridge and plenty of cupboard space. good base for exploring Apia and the Western half of the island with several good snorkelling beaches within 30-60 min drives. you do need a car with a bit of clearance for the rough 300m access road, though this is true for lots of beaches etc in Samoa also (we had a 2wd Hyundai Creta which was fine). Tim and Maria were very hospitable and very generous with local advice. Would definitely stay here again.

  • If you are looking for a home away from home, in a serene, quiet area you have found the perfect spot. Samoan Highland Hideaway was a beautiful fale to stay at. We absolutely loved our stay here, we had everything we needed here, fridge, iron, washing machine, oven, microwave, all the kitchen amenities, we had a group of 5 and this place was more that enough for us We checked in well and Tim communicated with us the whole way through, instructions to get to the house was clear, he let us come in a little earlier to leave our bags before we picked up the rest of the group from the airport and gave instructions to get there. Through out the stay we had awesome help from Soveni and Ioane who we had nice chats to and got to know well At night we enjoyed the cool breeze and talks on the balcony When we were sick Tim & Soveni helped out make sure we were taken care of, above and beyond what we expected The house is beautiful, we loved the Samoan Fale concept. Thank you again Tim, you were amazing We appreciate you and will surely recommend this place to our friends Thanks Peneueta & Valentine

    Peneueta2017-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved Tim and Maria's Highland house, the authenticity was magic, the fresh fruit presented to us every day by John was a surprise and a delight. The fact that you arranged for Vic to pick us up was really thoughtful and extremely helpful. Heaps of space, and plenty of beds. We loved the location and the house.

    Apia, Upolu, Самоа

    This tiny house is located 800m above sea level and offers a compact but elegant space with a great view from the tiny upper deck. Located near an art studio (Website hidden by Airbnb) and opposite a Samoan fale (house) and art gallery, the tiny house sleeps three comfortably. Cool and quite location with a wild foods cafe at the gallery. The property is also across the road from the Baha'i House of Worship with over 20 acres of serene grounds where guests can visit for walks and meditation.
    The Ma'oma'o (Samoan honeyeater) is an endangered bird that is endemic to Samoa and sings near the Tiny House every day. It has a range of beautiful melodies and is featured at the beginning of an introduction to films produced at the Tiapapata Art Centre: (Website hidden by Airbnb)
    Tiapapata is a quiet village with no traditional governance council. The Baha'i House of Worship is visible from the property and makes the area very special to visitors.
  • This tiny house in the hills of Upolu was great! Steven and his whole family went above and beyond to help us and gave us amazing local knowledge of things to do and see all over Samoa. Would definitely recommend staying here if you want to be a bit off the main track and appreciate a bit of tranquility. Amazing vegetarian/vegan food as well

    Mietta2018-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed with Steven twice for a total of three nights. We had a great time! The tiny house and whole property are beautiful. It was great to have the art gallery and café right there. Steven, his wife Wendy, and all the employees are lovely and hospitable. Communication could not have been smoother. The tiny house was comfortable and had a sufficient kitchen. We recommend bringing some jugs of drinking water as the water coming out of the sink was sometimes clean and other times (after rain) less so. The bathroom is very basic– not the best, but ok. Although there was no WiFi (Steven explained that he had accidentally indicated otherwise on airbnb), he graciously offered us to borrow his internet connection as needed. We were also able to rent a car from Steven for a great price, which made our trip much more pleasant. We recommend asking if you’re interested! Overall, we would recommend this place to anyone.

    Rachel2018-04-12T00:00:00Z
  • Steve and Wendy are truly exceptional hosts. The Tiny House is a perfect getaway and yet easily accessible if you have your own car. The house itself is cosy and quaint and has all necessary amenities. Steve and Wendy invited us over for dinner on one of the nights and were kind and gracious hosts. I would definitely recommend this little gem to anyone wanting a quiet, relaxing retreat combined with unmatched hospitality. Thank you and we will surely be back someday :)

    Aditi2018-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed at Steven's home for one night. Firstly, I found it difficult to find the place as the address given didn't come up on (Hidden by Airbnb) maps. We ended up calling the host and it was the owners wife that picked up. She was surprised to find we had arrived at 9:45. Mind you, Check in time was "anytime after 8am" so I didn't understand how she could be surprised by our arrival. Because of this, we had to wait at least half an hr while she had someone clean the place as it had not been cleaned. When we finally went in, the place was in reasonable condition. The floors had not been cleaned. The host did not greet us, but when she finally saw us, it was to tell us we needed to be out by 8am because there was someone else booked for the next morning (we were around but not inside the property until 11am and no one had shown up..hmmm). The bathroom sink water as well as the toilet water would sometimes turn yellow when turned on (I found this very disturbing). The shower water only runs cold. The blankets and sheets smelt very musty and mouldy as if they had been lying in a cold damp room for a while. Safe to say I did not get much sleep that night. On a positive note however, the house from the outside is very pretty, as well as the scenery and location of the property.

    Alice2018-06-26T00:00:00Z
  • I enjoy Airbnb's for the uniqueness you experience and Steven & Wendy's tiny art house set in the lush green jungle of Samoa certainly fit the bill. If you have you're own transportation, then you're relatively close to everything (as the island is not overly big) but you get the chance to retreat to this small art community in the jungle whenever you please to enjoy the serenity and amazing food cooked up at café located in the art center. The accommodation is clean and perfect for the solo traveller, business traveller (I ticked those boxes) or small family. Everything you need is in the tiny home to make for a comfortable and pleasant stay. As for Steven and Wendy, they are gracious hosts (Steven invited me to dine with his family the fist evening) and are great to have a yarn with over a tea or coffee. Cannot recommend this place enough and I certainly intend to return one day.

    Andrew2018-04-15T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful little self-contained home tucked up in the cool and quiet hills above Apia. We really enjoyed all the beautiful and unique touches around the home and slept so soundly in the cosy loft. Highly recommend this beautiful property. Big thanks to Steven, who was a very warm and hospitable host. Can't wait to visit again!

    Apia, Upolu, Самоа

    We call this cabin our 'bunker' as it is a small cabin right on the beach. The bunker is right next to our bar and restaurant. Please note this is a SHARED bathroom and shower arrangement. Sa''Moana Beach Bungalows is a 3.5 star beach hotel - not a beach fale budget accommodation. It is isolated and right on the Ocean in a beautiful spot. We are not near any other restaurants or bars and are not within walking distance so car or scooter hire is recommended or you will need to take taxis.
    The cabin is basic and spacious for 2 people. located right on the beach the setting is amazing. is a simple open space with Queen bed, fridge and panoramic ocean views. As you are located in a hotel there are other guests here. Sunrises and sunsets are really magical at Sa'Moana and there are great spots for some amazing holiday or Insta photo's.
    We are located at the end of the Salamumu Village beach road - 6 km from the main road in an isolated spot. There are no other shops or restaurants nearby so you need to pick up supplies before you get here if you don't have transport. Taxis are easy to arrange with reception but we recommend you plan ahead and rent a 4 wheel drive vehicle. A Rav 4 or similar is perfect for the bumpy roads.
  • Endroit magnifique, typique et calme. Petit-déjeuner correct, propreté impeccable.

    Kevin2017-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • It is a perfect stay on a lovely place with yummy food!! We could recommend this place!!

    Rahel2018-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • My partner and I were needing to recharge and unwind from the busy the world, and that exactly what we got. Nestled away on a secluded and idealic part of upolu lies Sa'moana resort, a true getaway. The chalet is perfect size for a couple with extremely clean facilities to use. The staff are outstanding with genuine smiles all round. I was impressed with the menu especially with the use of local produce! And the execution on all meals were 10/10 really impressed. Overall this was the best experience I've had with airbnb and value for money is an understatement. Thanks again for your hospitality! Soifua

    Paul A2018-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place to stay. It definitely looks better in real then the pictures:-D Nearby beaches absolutely stunning. Local staff was really friendly and welcoming, nice food and the remote area makes this place special.

    Martin2018-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • What a great deal! I would definitely recommend staying here. Beautiful location and all the facilities of a great resort at a cheaper price. If you don’t mind not having a bathroom and using the communal one (which is spotlessly clean) then definitely stay here. Down a long bumpy road so hire a car for sure

    Kayleigh2018-03-28T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful location, lovely staff, lots to do or just lay in the sun and (Website hidden by Airbnb) of the more expensive places on the food side but it was all fresh and yummy! One of my favorite places to stay on Upolu. (kind of unrelated) The people living on the drive down from the road to the beach seemed like some of the poorest we have seen in Samoa (plenty of food around but the kids all had old ripped up clothes on) sad. Would have been good idea for them to have coconut stands or shops open as there aren't any close to the resort.. maybe the resort could help them to start some up.?

  • You want to learn how hospitality is done right. Stay here. Daniel was out of town when we were there. The couple that were taking care of the place were fantastic. We stayed for 6 nights in the Beach Cabin and loved it. The place is beautiful. If you are looking for some tranquillity this is the place to go. Food was fantastic and at a good price. The pool was lovely. And in the main building they have a workout space upstairs!!!!! Just a heads up those without vehicles. It's a 20min drive down a gravel road. So accecability can be tricky. We taxied in. Then rented their scooter. Eventually we rented a car for more freedom. That being said this place was definitely a hidden gem. Recommend them 100%

    Salamumu, A'ana, Самоа

    Our property is not on Upolu Island but on Savaii Island which is the bigger island of Samoa. Our bungalow is studio type with an open fale. It's ideal for travellers looking for something unique to unwind at. It has a hot water shower, fridge, coffee & tea making facilities, oven, washing machine and both front and back porch. A restaurant and bar is on site, a few steps away from the ocean and you get to use resorts kayaks for free
    Our location is unique and waterfront where turtles are wild and free. 100 year old dramatic lava flow formations surrounds our property. The area our property is on was reclaimed by the lava flow of 1905. Cold freshwater springs pop up between the lava tubes along the lava field. Plants have found their way between the lava cracks and have mostly covered the lava and provide shade and coolness around the property.
    You'll be living in a village community and a site seeing or visit with the locals can be arranged by request with one of our staff accompaning you on the visit. Experience our life and way of living by participating in village activities eg sports volleyball, rugby or outdoor cooking like hot cocoa making or basket weaving etc. This will come free of charge and if you wish to donate something for the family you visit it is completely up to you but it is not expected.
  • Good

    Yohanes2018-06-14T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay! We loved seeing the turtles while kayaking and had heaps of fun. We actually thought the photos on here do not do the view justice, it's quite beautiful. The rooms are a little dated but that didn't worry us and is reflected in the price and most importantly bed was comfortable!!! We got great advice on the sites to see and everyone was really helpful. We loved our stay!

    Glenda2018-06-12T00:00:00Z
  • Un superbe lieu et accueil.

    olivier2017-06-26T00:00:00Z
  • I LOVE this place! Stayed an extra night. Incredibly hospitable staff, good menu selection and beautiful beach. Sandy and rock beach with reclining lawn chairs. Kayaks available and almost always sea turtles! Little piggies run around and the lava field looks neat. Nice room for price, comfy beds, AC, own bathroom No wifi. Staff knows everyone by name. I can tell they are slowly improving the place. Would highly recommend this to everyone!

    Lacy2018-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, worth the price especially if you have rental car.

    Steve2017-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • Nice bungalow built on top of the lava fields witch is a bit different, this place is pretty remote needing a car or scooter to get around key restaurant onsite but pre order your food as they cook fresh to order. Breckfast is amazing lots of food. Beach frout with great veiws over largoon.

    Bex2017-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • A place where you can experience a little bit of the samoan way to live. relax, listen to music, paddle with the kayak, go for a snorchel trip around the coral reefs or just enjoy the sun. Love the food, breakfast was my all day choice. Still cooking sup esi at home : )

    Jo2017-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • Had an amazing time here! The free kayaks are an amazing opportunity - we saw wild turtles! Would definitely recommend, the staff are so lovely and make you feel so at home. Had a wonderful time!

  • Thank you so much Ana for allowing us to stay at your beautiful home. Your sister Palepa and husband Faatulituli were very helpful and accommodating. Your home was literally our 'home' away from 'home' - even our families in Samoa were quite amazed at how beautiful, clean and spacious your home was - my children loved the outside yard - when its not too hot outside, they are running around the compound playing chase or just running :) So again, thank you so much - it was well worth the spend and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Samoa. My husband and I actually felt it was way better than staying at a hotel and would book it again in a heartbeat....And thank you as well for allowing us the late check out - it was much appreciated :) Thank you for everything Ana, Palepa and Faatulituli.

    Sina2018-04-02T00:00:00Z

    Apia, Upolu, Самоа

    Light, airy, modern, elevated fully self-contained holiday home in the balmy climate 'upcountry'. Sea and garden views. Gated, easy access, nice lawns and garden. The perfect base for your holiday adventures (or retreat from work!) - 15 minutes drive down the mountain north (Apia - shopping, nightlife etc) or south (resorts/beaches/nature walks). 10 min walk to stunning Malololelei nature reserve, close to Baha'i Temple & Montessori school. Long stay discounts 15-35%.
    Tilly's Place has been built for maximum comfort - natural airflow, light, seaviews. It is made to be lived in and comes with all the bells and whistles! A large patio runs along the front, and high ceilings add to the feeling of spaciousness. All furniture, whiteware etc are quality goods imported from NZ. The space is designed to be adaptable, whether you are a cozy couple or a family with kids. The Ikea sofa in the living room converts to a very comfortable full queen size bed in a curtained corner, and the Ikea daybed in the bedroom pulls out / converts to a double (in addition to standard queen bed). We have a lovely huge garden with shade trees, play area for kids, petanque set, passionfruit, pineapple and papaya plants.
  • Tilly's Place is a great base for exploring Samoa - the house is very clean and extremely well thought out for tourists with everything there for a great holiday. We struggled with directions in general around Samoa, there are no road signs and the main tourist map is very basic and doesn't detail most roads. Internet is patchy and requires a local SIM card, when staying at Tilly's place I'd recommend hiring a car to get around. There are heaps of car rental places, we used Georgie's which we were really happy with. Just maybe buy a detailed map to take before you leave!

    Fraser2018-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • This is a perfect base to see Upolu. It is stylish, clean and cooler than Apia as it is up in the hills. Rob is the perfect on-site host and even organised a wonderful birthday cake for one of us. I wish we had stayed here for the whole time we had on the island as it was just great. Gabrielle is kind, quick to respond and lovely.

    Tim2018-03-26T00:00:00Z
  • Tilly's House is an amazing spot to make your base on a trip to Samoa. It is close enough to absolutely everything, a great size house with all amenities and a fantastic property manger, Rob that can't do enough for you. We made it out base for 8 nights and went exploring most days. The hills location meant that even when it was super hot in town, you got the mountain breeze at night. There was a fire pit and bbq, snorkeling gear, games, it truly was a home away from home. I can't recommend this place enough. Why stay in a hotel when you can stay in a lovely home, Tilly's House!

    Jenna And Henri2018-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house up in the mountains. Very centrally located on the island so it's easy to get around and see everything. The home has been recently built and has all the amenities you'd be used to back home. The host is easily the most communicative and helpful one I've ever had. So nice and gave us tons of places to go see. While in Samoa we interacted with the host's neighbor, Rob. He also was very helpful and invited us in for tea and a coconut cream demonstration. Honestly, such a great clean home and host, can't recommend this place enough.

    Phillip2017-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • The space is extremely peaceful up in the clear and cooler mountains. We were there for a family event so we didn’t have much time to enjoy the beaches and etc. however, the couple days we did have free e just lounged around the house; so peaceful. Rob was extremely accommodating and friendly. He worked with us and definitely went above and beyond.

    Kelly2018-06-16T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommend to anyone and everyone. 4 in our group got to enjoy the "home away from home" feel in this beautiful location. After a full on week of our missions trip, this was the perfect house for us to unwind. Being up in the mountain made us appreciate how peaceful and beautiful apia really is. Communication with home owners was great, the property manager Rob was always helpful and accommodating. The place is perfect, clean and has all the amenities we're used to at home. Loved it and can't highly recommend it enough. Am looking forward to my next trip as i will definitely be booking this property. We loved the recommendations of the local cafes/restaurants, as we tried a few of them and weren't disappointed. Thank you for allowing us into your home. 100%

    Emmie2018-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at this 'home away from home' for 5 nights and loved every second of it. The house is modern and comfortable and has everything you would expect to find in your own home. The beds are super comfy and I loved having hot water for the shower and a washing machine to do our laundry! Made our trip much easier being able to do this! We spent a lot of time drinking coffee in the garden, watching films on the tv and doing puzzles. Malolelei is a beautiful area and very peaceful and quiet. The host Gabrielle was excellent with communication and sending us information for our stay and their property manager Rob was incredibly helpful. He drove us around, helped us organising things in town for our stay and made us feel very welcome and like old friends! We had the best time staying here and will definitely be back!

  • This house is a great base for exploring the island. It's close enough to Apia to drive into town for dinner and an easy drive to the beaches on the otherside of the island. Being higher up it's not as hot in the evenings, you have a great views and it's quiet and peaceful. The house has everything you could want, including stuff for snorkeling and the beach. Communication was great and the host provided lots of handy tips and advice. Rob was also on hand to help us with any queries and even brought us some coconuts. Was a great place, would highly recommend.

    10 Minutes drive from downtown Apia and a world away where the cool mountain breeze and lush views bring serenity to your visit. We are a few minutes from Robert Louis Stevenson Museum, gardens, waterfall and Mt. Vaea walk. You’ll love my place because of the neighbourhood, ambiance, people and the outdoor space. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, families (with kids) or groups.
    This beautifully renovated conversion offers dramatic living space with high vaulted ceilings, large soaking tub and oversized glass shower with a large deck that overlooks the scenic panorama of the Apia Basin.
  • Russell was a most affable, genuine and helpful host. He gave us many local tips and we learnt a good deal about Samoan culture from him. Our location in Apia Hills was perfect for us as a family as we had hired a car for our 14 day stay. The Loft gave all members of our family space and privacy with two levels and a balcony. We had a terrific time in Samoa. Thank-you Russell!

  • Had a wonderfully relaxing stay at Russell's place. Russell is very welcoming and nearby if you need any assistance. The place is very spacious (especially for just two people), bright and airy with some wonderful artwork to add to the tropical ambience. The location is great, 10-15 minutes out of town, plenty of shops nearby for all your grocery needs, Robert Louis Stevenson down the road for a quick sweaty hike up mount vaea , or head straight up the road for a gorgeous drive over the mountains to access beautiful beaches and falls on other side of island. Having access to a full kitchen meant we could cook our own meals (money saver and healthier). Absolutely loved the balcony where we sat and ate breakfast and dinner almost every day to enjoy the breeze and calming vistas up in the treetops. This is my first air bnb experience in Samoa and now I won't bother with hotel accom anymore for future visits. For relaxation, peace and quiet, convenience and comfort, I highly recommend Russell's place.

    House is very spacious but cosy and can add extra beds if needed. The outdoor Terrace upstairs is very nice for entertaining and hanging out especially in the afternoon and at night.
    Our place is set up so as to be able to rent upstairs and downstairs separate. So if need be a cheaper option can be to rent upstairs only as a room with bathroom, mini frige and kettle etc or downstairs as a fully equiped One bedroom home.
    Very good neighbours. Close to shops and town.
  • nice location every thing you need.

  • Eka was an extremely helpful host, offering all sorts of assistance to locate the place, including talking to our taxi driver multiple times along the way - all at 11pm! Arp Rooftop Terrace is a great space in a quiet neighbourhood, with roadside shops only a short walk away. I recommend staying at Arp to anyone planning a trip to Samoa! Thank you Eka :)

    Located on a hill, 10 mins away from Apia township and 20 mins from the nearest southern beach, we offer a comfy 4 bedroom accommodation with 3 ensuite. Its open style provides great views of the mountains, sunrises and clear skies with glimpses of the ocean. Native bird watching - bats too ... are a treat for the urban eyes. This home is a wonderful retreat from the heat and dust! So try it ... relax in our alfresco dining/lounge space with garden views or simply by the pool side
    2-storey home: air-conditioned master bedroom on ground floor - leads out to pool and cabana. Has super king size bed, walk-in wardrobe, ensuite and coffee/tea making area. 3 bedrooms located upstairs; 2 rooms (double and queen) facing mountains have private balconies, air-conditioning and ensuite. Single room with two King Single trundler beds (make 4 beds) has ceiling fan. A shared bathroom exists upstairs. Open plan kitchen/dining area extends out to alfresco dining/lounge space. Kitchen provides appliances for all cooking/baking needs. Lounge is spacious and opens onto a verandah with views of mountains, main road and pool area. It also accesses the private carport. TV sets are in the open alfresco space, dining room and master bedroom. Play Station 4 is also available for use. Laundry is located outside on ground floor level. It has a washer and 2 dryers. We have more floor mattresses if needed and a mobile toddler's cot/playpen. The hosts occupy a separate self-contained unit downstairs - your privacy will not be invaded!
    Quiet neighbourhood but unique as home of the native manumea bird. 2 cafes within walking distance and a beautifully landscaped temple across the road which you can take a relaxing walk at your leisure. Being at top of hill, it doesn't take long to drive to the nearest sandy beach on the southern side or fresh river pools in Afiamalu. Nearest public waterfall is a 20 -25 minutes drive.
  • You have to stay here during your Samoan vacation. This house is so lovely! The open layout is wonderful and provided a lot of space for my family (6 adults and and infant). Kisa was so helpful during our stay and answered any questions we had. This house is located not far from town at all!! It is located up some hills. One of our cars could not make it up the hills, so make sure you have a good car to handle going up. But our other car, a van, had no problems handling the hills. Because the house sits atop a hill, it is surrounded by the most beautiful views, which are PRICELESS! You feel secluded in this beautiful home amongst nature but it is still SO CLOSE to town. The house has 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms (3 of them being ensuites)!! This is enough to accommodate your family or group! The kitchen is great and where we spent a lot of our time together as a family eating and laughing. The house has this amazing pool as well that the kids will love! The house was also very clean! Beds were comfy too, and the AC helped (although this area stays very nice and cool--we kept the doors open mostly to let the air filtrate in) THANK YOU again Kisa for everything and helping to make our stay so WONDERFUL!!

    Leilani2018-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • Kisa's place was wonderful and we really enjoyed our stay there. Her home is beautiful and the kids loved swimming in the pool. Thank you Kisa for making our stay so comfortable!

    Becky2018-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • The house has everything you will ever need for a beautiful and most comfortable stay in Sunny Samoa. We initially chose this accommodation because of the pool. My children enjoy swimming and we thought this was the perfect house to cool down after a long day of exploring samoa.... The house is a short 10min drive from town, About a 5 min drive from Mynas supermarket. There are little family stores along this road too where we picked up Niu and bananas every morning. The house is up on a hill so it is much cooler and breezy than a place in town. The house itself is so beautifully laid out, 4 huge bedrooms 3 of them with ensuites, a carport at the front which could fit 3 cars, The entertainment and bbq area outside was our main hub for our family. The kids loved playing on the ps4. The air conditioning in nearly every room was so lovely to have on the hot sticky days. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed and thank you so much for stocking up the pantry and fridge for us to use. The Pool and Cabana area....now that space is magical. We swam day and night and there was plenty of lighting for the night time swims, I loved the colourful lights. We also had the bonus of the Washing machine and dryer. We are glad we had this facility at our fingertips. The cupboard was stocked with plenty of towels and tea towels too. The hosts lived in the apartment downstairs and were on call if we needed anything. The pool was cleaned daily and the grounds and gardens were kept immaculate by their groundskeeper who was there every weekday. He was a lovely boy but tried to stay out of our families way. Again I just want to say thank you so much! Faafetai Lava

    William2018-07-19T00:00:00Z
  • Climbing up the main Cross Island road across Samoa, we found Kisa’s lovely house and she was there to greet us at the door. A great host, she showed us round her lovely home, and the kids (group of 4 adults, 3 kids 5 and under) were delighted by the sight of a beautiful swimming pool after a hot journey from the Airport. Kisa’s place was a great location to the explore the island, which for us included trips to Lalomanu and To Su’a. Plus plenty of time to relax and have fun in the pool, which was perfect for the kids. Definitely a great place to base yourself to explore what Samoa has to offer.

    Rod2018-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • Kisa's home is literally the best. They had everything we needed. We felt at home and there was nothing we could ever complain about. Kisa was amazing at communicating and very kindly towards us. This home is so comfortable, we loved every moment shared in this home. We will definitely be coming back next time we're in Samoa.

    The Samoan Highland Hideaway Homestead is the ultimate family holiday home. Boasting multiple living areas, large modern kitchen, 4.5 bedrooms. We are semi-off-grid, have solar power with battery and mains back-up, rainwater tanks, and our own plantation.
    The Samoan Highland Hideaway Homestead is the ultimate family holiday home. Boasting multiple living/hang out areas, modern kitchen with breakfast bar, stunning elevated deck overlooking the private plantation and gardens, a unique massage/relaxation room and supremely comfortable and spacious bedrooms for a variety of family dynamics! The top level of the house hosts the master ensuite bedroom, a double bedroom, and wrap-around enclosed lounge/yoga studio (props included!) area. The bottom level, surrounded by the gardens, consists of another double bedroom, a twin share bedroom with two single beds, shared bathroom, library/reading room, AND the unique massage/relaxation/spare room (single bed) for those much required quiet moments.
    The Samoan Highland Hideaway Homestead is located in the hills above Apia, about a 20 minute drive from the great places to eat and drink whilst you're here. There are waterfalls nearby, amazing beaches within 30-40 minutes, nature walks, art galleries, and easy access to the airport (40 min drive) and port if you plan on going to Savai'i (recommended). We are nicely isolated down a dirt road, so all you'll hear are the birds and geckos, no traffic or street noise at all. A real retreat location for some time out.
  • This home was very big and spacious.Beautifully well maintained property.Private and in the highlands.Fresh fruit brought to you everyday.Any issues people there to fix it straight away.Very kind people.Thank you Maria and Tim.

    Victoria2018-06-25T00:00:00Z
  • Tim and Maria are the nicest person i havew ever seen.the house is very very nice and beaifull with a big flower garder we really enjoyed the staying.everything there is perfect stronglly recommend.

    Jingshuo2017-04-14T00:00:00Z
  • While a little out of Apia more than made up with by the great garden surroundings and actually quicker access to the airport than Apia via the mid-island road. Accommodation is very spacious even for our group of 7 adults. All the amenities you will need and host hospitality is outstanding. Highly recommend.

    Peter2018-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • This place was amazing. We stayed for 13 days and just could not get enough of the view from the balcony. Perfect quite get away from hussles and bustle of Sydney. So comfy that it was tempting to just spend the day at home relaxing but our goal was to explore Samoa.. We loved our stay so much so we are going back to Samoa in 2019 and wanting to stay here again A++++

    Lavinia2017-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great escape from the heat and craziness of Apia town. Best umu I have eaten in many years. Felt like we were part of a large happy extended Samoan family. Wonderful gardens and quiet nights. Tim and Maria are fantastic hosts. On arrival we were surprised By their generosity - they provided coconuts, avocados, pawpaw, bananas and limes. They were full of helpful tourist advice, friendly and patient as we attempted Samoan. Great place for families and plenty of room, would recommend highly. The house is huge and provided more than enough space for all the family. Lovely balcony overlooking the plantation, close drive to all shops & Apia, and so peaceful. Thank you from all our family Tim & Maria - you were both amazing and the house superb. Reviews above from 3 in our family.

    Warren2017-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • I could not recommend a better place to stay in Samoa. We where a group of 5 all young adults. The houses run by Tim and Maria are absolutely stunning, I honestly do not have a bad word to say about them! It's all about a cultural experience and you most definitely get that here way more than any resort! Tim and Maria themselves where absolutely amazing catering to our every need! They will have great success with this business they are the best hosts we've ever had. The grounds man is also a top bloke ensuring complete safety for all guests along with delivering us fresh fruit straight from the grounds daily! He even taught us how to climb the coconut trees! I will be back! Had the best time ever!

    Amy2016-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • The house and garden are lovely for a nice relaxing holiday. Tim and Maria were excellent hosts, even allowing us to stay an extra night when other accommodation fell through. It is slightly out of town (15 minute drive) and secluded, therefore, would not recommend for a loud group of 20-somethings as the village courtesy of quiet after sun down can be difficult to adhere to. The road to the driveway of the property is extremely rugged and hard to maneuver in anything other than a 4WD. All in all, it is a great value for money and a lovely home as long as you're quiet at night and able to traverse the road to the property.

    Zelma2017-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • In a secluded location up the hill from Apia, it makes a good base to explore the island from. Definitely a good base for a bigger group, plenty of rooms in the main house and good to have a kitchen.

    Great for those that enjoy the feeling of waking up in the morning to the sound of the ocean. Located 30m from the ocean and pool
  • Quiet spot, ideal for an authentically Samoan getaway

    Alice2018-04-18T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed here on my last night after travelling around Samoa for two weeks. 25 mins drive from Apia it's worth it to not stay in town. It was the first place to have aircon which felt like a luxury for our last night, and a mini fridge to keep everything cool. Staff were pleasant and helpful. The dinner was so/so, I recommend the grilled tuna with veggies. The pool area was lovely with good sized deck for lounging around.

    Katie2017-04-24T00:00:00Z
  • this is the only place in the village for staying. you have a mini market at the top of the hill. bikes, canoe available. the swimming pool is a delight during those hot days!

    Elodie2018-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very pleasant small resort in a beautiful location. Right on the seashore on a fair sized shallow lagoon with fringing coral reefs. Backed by steep forested mountains the resort is accessed from the main coastal road. Located on the approaches to Faleapuna village about 30 minutes drive from the Island capital of Apia. The airport is another 40 minutes drive West past Apia. Friendly relaxed resort staff made our stay very pleasant. Food was good with a varied menu. Local buses are cheap and run about every hour but beware as the last bus to you get you back to the resort leaves Apia about 5pm and the buses don't run at all on Sundays! Taxis aren't cheap so Car hire gives you the best option for freedom to come and go and explore the island as you please. Snorkelling from the shore is quite good on shallow patches of coral with plenty of small reef fish and hard corals to enjoy. Scuba diving in Northern Samoa is another matter as the reefs we visited around Apia were virtually destroyed in 2009 by a Tsunami. It will be many years before these once stunning reefs will rejuvenate. Definitely the worst Coral diving we've seen in 30 years of travel. Heartbreaking to see such devastation. Samoa has a very friendly, relaxed and safe atmosphere and we had a wonderful time at Le Uaina resort and around Samoa generally. We highly recommend this resort but travellers need to be aware it is a bit out of town and isolated without your own transport

    Queen sized bed in bright and airy room. Fans and storage.
    We are up in the cool hills of Apia, very private and surrounded by lush gardens
  • Denise is a fun, generous, interesting, helpful, and generally nice person! She opens her home to you, where there is lots of space either to sit outside in the shade, or indoors; alone, or chatting with her if she has the time. She runs a cafe, which is attached to her home, and bakes the most wonderful cakes. We can highly recommend this nice home (with no bugs despite its tropical location!), close to everything in Apia.

    Ann-Marie2017-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • A very hospital place to stay. Denise was helpful and accommodating. The cafe on the premises was an unexpected benefit. Would definitely recommend.

She also had such a lovely and welcoming spirit. Fa'afetai lava for letting us stay in your apartment! :D

    Brenda2016-10-29T00:00:00Z

  • The host was very kind and friendly. I booked this place since it was close to town (Apia). The air conditioner was great. I booked this place based on the previous reviews which were exceptional but the floor was not clean and there were bugs. There was a disturbing odor from the kitchen similar to the smell of paint but other than that, the place was ok and quiet. It was affordable and convenient to book.

    Vaepa2017-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at secilias place for 2 nights it's a nice and mostly clean place with air-con in the bedroom and a big kitchen. Unfortunately we didn't meet secilia but we arrived late and left early. Everything was good and the value for the place is perfect.

  • Great place, close to town, clean, easy to find, across the road from a convenience shop. Good security, easy access. Met all our needs. Really, great communication, they were hospitable and wanted to help. They gave us lots of advice before we arrived. Thanks, we enjoyed our stay.

    Dana2018-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • Good, safe, comfortable accommodations, with one complaint (see below), but the guide service offered by the host made this stay exceptional. The house is clean and comfortable, with a full kitchen, a washer, a bed in the main space and another in a back bedroom, a seating and dining area, and two air-conditioners. There is a fence around the house. The whole thing is also adjacent to an electronics store that has a parking area and locking gate at the street, so it felt very secure. Another larger rental property is in the the back of the lot. The store and other rental had no effect on my stay, and the store actually serves as a convenient landmark for taxis. It's just a few minutes from both the the Fagali'i Airport and the craft market. Make sure you know what airport you are flying into. Travelers on my plane made a mistake and thought they were headed to the other, larger Faleolo International Airport. There are restaurants nearby and a convenience store across the street. My one complaint was that I found some dead roaches. They are working to control this, and the operator is dedicated to good customer service, but it is the tropics after all. I expect this to improve quickly. The island has nice things to see and do. The market has great deals on local handmade crafts, but be sure you know when it will be open. From American Samoa the country is ACROSS THE INTERNATIONAL DATE LINE. The deals are great for Americans because of the exchange rate. When I was there one US dollar bought more than 2.5 Samoan Tala. So a 50 Tala kava bowl was less than $20 USD. You can also haggle at least 20% and up to 30% at times off the listed price. So a 300 Tala bowl will often be offered at 250, and you might be able to talk them down to 225 or less, which comes out to less than $90 (but check the exchange rates at the time of your trip). You can't get these prices in American Samoa or Hawaii ! Food is cheap too. A steak dinner with appetizer, salad bar, main course, and dessert was 85 Tala, or $33 USD. But you can get good BBQ for 10 Tala or $4 USD. A quarter-pounder at McDonald's was 15 Tala or $6 USD. The snorkeling is amazing. Piula (Fatumea) Cave pool is cool, and the To Sua Ocean Trench is unique; both very fun to snorkel. The coral is in unbelievably good shape, and overflowing with fish - just gorgeous. There are white sand beaches. Right now the island is beginning to improve it's ability to accommodate tourists, much better than American Samoa in this regard, and still has a feel like Hawaii had a generation or two ago: cheap, low-crime (I never feared for pick-pockets), lightly traveled, with great beaches. Now is the time to go before it gets swamped with travelers...

  • Awesome people very friendly, and House is very suitable for travellers to sleep :)

    Sina2018-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • This house is a remarkable value!! There's plenty of room for 4 people, and the kitchen has plenty of amenities for cooking a full meal. We had hot water and AC all weekend, as well as full access to the washing machine. The combination of cleanliness, affordability, and comfort was such a rare find in Apia, and we can't wait to come back!

    Carinne2018-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • It is a cute little cottage with 2 bedrooms, with all the amenities anyone could need. The location is great as it is near the small local airport as well as close to town. A great experience and a great host.

  • This little place was a great space to live in, location is central and very handy to a lot of things. The value is great and I would happily stay again in future.

    Our home is located 2 mins from Sports Complex and 5 mins to town in a quiet family compound in Ululoloa. It is set back from the road and surrounded by plenty of trees and beautiful local birds can often be seen. There are several large supermarkets near by and we can organize a private transfer from the airport for $70. We can also help arrange a rental car and a map and guide are available. I live next door so am always on hand if you have questions or need help. My name is Georgina Lui.
    Guests have the whole house available. There are 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. 1 is an ensuite with shower and the other has a bath and shower. There is a large lounge area which can sleep and extra 2 people as well as a patio. No smoking in house and no loud noise/parties. You are welcome to entertain in a civilized manner and refrain from noise after 10pm
    Close to Sports complex. Catholic Church. Large supermarkets nearby.
  • Location is great as it’s close to town and good supermarkets. Being back off the road it’s very quiet. The house is spacious so even with a full house there’s plenty of room that you’re not always under each other’s feet. Stevie and Sacha (dogs) were lovely. Great value for money.

  • A VERY BEAUTIFUL HOME!!! We enjoyed EVERY bit about it! Had it not been for other places we needed to be at; we couldve just stayed there all day. Very friendly Gina is; staff too. We very much enjoyed our stay; very child friendly and very relaxing! Home away from home! ☺☺. Will definitely be coming back in future. Thank you thank you thank you for sharing your home. 5 star + for sure!!! :)

  • Absolutely beautiful the quietness and scenery was surreal made us very proud of the beauty in our country. Close to the shops and down the road from the main Apia centre. House was so modern and clean very BIG and spacious. The washing machine was very useful and just the quietness of everything was amazing. Everything we needed to have a relaxing Holiday hosts are awesome. Dogs were adorable and friendly. Loved it here x

    Frances2018-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing, the house is massive!! The place is fully equipt with washer, dryer, bedding, towels, pots, pans you name it they have it, ALL INCLUDED. All windows and doors are covered with insect screens, every room has a ceiling fan and the master bedroom has an aircon unit (so good). Once the renovations are complete we think it would sleep 8-10 comfortably. The house is a little off the main road (Papaseea) and can be hard to find with a taxi straight from the airport. I suggest having Georgina's phone number handy and she can give the driver instructions (as was the case with our driver) Or give the driver landmarks such as the "Samoa Tradition Resort" (On the same road as the house) or "Frankie's Supermarket Ululoloa" for a general direction. Amazing value for money, nice and quiet. The family's dogs are lovely (Stevie & Pancake (chews shoes)) We want to thank you again for a wonderful stay! Totally recommend to all! 5 Stars *****

    Adam Hollard2018-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Clean, amazing interior (especially the kitchen), cheap considering the value of the place, cooler than other villages so you didn’t need the aircon on & when it got a little hotter than usual the aircon helped, and the utilities (washer/dryer/aircon) were so amazing to have access to and at no extra fee. Loved having extra towels available to use (& good quality towels too - no short ones that barely covered your body) & overall, an amazing place and host! Five star! 10 stars if I can! Must stay if you’re visiting Samoa.

    Cecile2018-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Gina's house for 8 nights during a two week trip to Samoa in August. The other nights were spent in resorts on Savaii and at Salatoga Sands. Gina's house is large and well kept, there is lot's of space for a family with 3 kids and all amenities needed. It is a little more rural than I expected but you can still walk to a supermarket within 10-15mins and drive into Apia town centre in 15-20mins. Stevie and Sasha (Gina's two dogs) kept my kids entertained for hours and they still talk about them :) A car is definitely recommended. The closest good beaches we found were across island (try Matereva, Coconuts beach, the beach at Brenda's beach fales, the best snorkeling was at Matereva and all beaches were amazing). Each is at least 45mins drive from the house so be prepared to do some driving, there are no beaches in the Apia area. Wifi worked but we had issues with delays in loading more data (I was working remotely and ended up using cell hotspot a lot with Digicel - buy a sim at the airport). The house fitted the bill perfectly for us, Samoa is amazing and we loved our trip!

    Giles2018-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • Georgina's home is Wonderful! Just stayed there for our family vacation and loved it, especially the AC in our room. So much space for our family of six.

    Becky2018-07-19T00:00:00Z
  • Huge thanks to Georgina & her daughter for the amazing hospitality & service provided from the get go. So friendly and prompt. House was beautifully set up & so clean & homely. Would definitely stay there again & recommend to family and friends . Alofas & blessings to you & yours x

  • We absolutely enjoyed our stay here and can't praise our hosts enough for their hospitality, which was friendly and genuine. Lovely Justine had really helpful tips of the local places to visit, things to do as well as things to be mindful about. Justine also offered assistance with transport to and from the house which was so helpful as we didn't have a car and there are no street addresses in Samoa. The place itself was beautifully presented, simple but very clean and stocked with basic essentials such as hand soap, toilet paper, washing powder, bottled water and basic cooking ingredients. The large fridge/freezer, gas cooktop, washing machine and air con were all in excellent condition. The house was also well secured with the onsite guard dog ("Brownie" who is great company) and a lockable fence. The location is ideally placed with a mere $5 taxi to get anywhere in Apia from the house and taxi's are so frequent in the area, you won't be waiting long for a ride. I highly recommend this accommodation and the hosts and are very grateful for their hospitality and look forward to coming back sometime soon.

    Kaisalina2018-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location, very close to downtown and supermarkets. Clean, stylish, equipped kitchenette and good working air co. Justine is super friendly and extra available.

    Sara2018-04-13T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome hosts who are very attentive and full of local knowledge. Accommodation is close enough to walk to the town and the marina and is perfect for a short stay in Samoa :)

    Kelly2018-04-19T00:00:00Z
  • The place was as advertised, very close to Taumeasina Resort which was where I had family staying so great location. Good coffee just across the road and I felt safe with the dog there in the yard. Justine was an excellent host, she picked me up from the airport and showed me where everything was (supermarket, good coffee, the resort and where to get a SIM card). Communication was also really great, easy to get in touch with and quick responses.

    Amy2018-06-11T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay. The cottage is within walking distance of central Apia. Great communication and clean place with equipped kitchen in a calm residential area. The use of the washing machine was a nice bonus.

  • I highly recommend to stay at Maua Homestay. Denise organised a shuttle to come from the airport to her home in advance. it was 50$ talas per couple. She also organised the way back to the airport for 4am in the morning...and she woke up to farewell us and to be sure that the shuttle was in time. We loved to meet another guests in the home and locals friends of Denise. She introduced us a friend of her who was volunteering in the islands and she gave us amazing tips to see the islands in 9 days! Denise also helped us to rent a car for the time we were in Upolu. I really enjoyed the conversations with Denise about Samoa and NZ! she is so much fun! She provided amazing breakfast with fresh fruit, toast, jams and cereals. The breakfast was ready from 8.30 to 10am. Thanks Denise for making us to feel at home during our stay in Samoa! we cannot wait to visit you again in the future!

    Patricia2018-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • Nice homestay near the town center. Has a swimming pool in the garden to cool down on a hot day. Would definitely recommend if you want to stay near the center of Apia.

    Johanna2018-06-25T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice and clean accommodation. Maua is very helpful with, she can help you with transport from and to airport. Room is cozy, tidy and clean. Her cats and dog are fabulous :)

    Jan2018-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • It was a great experience for my partner and myself. The place is so good, Denise is so nice, we couldn't really expect something better for our stay in Apia and in Samoa. We arrived there and Denise showed us on the map all the places we should go, then invited us at an event she was going, took care of us from day 1 ... As well, the breakfast was fully furnished ; having the ability to eat fruits all day long as well is a plus ! In Samoa, you will say that you don't need a hot shower, but some days, believe me, you will need it (specially for long hair ahaha) :) Thanks again for everything, we will definitely come back =D

    Caroline2017-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed with Denise for 2 nights. She organized a shuttle for me from the airport for 30 tala, which is quite a bargain! The house is clean and is located in a very convenient location to the city center. Breakfast was good—fresh fruit, cereal, and bread. Denise is also very helpful regarding things to do and finding bargains on things such as rental cars (lots of places will overcharge—I found this out too late). I would highly recommend staying here!

    Reed2018-04-11T00:00:00Z
  • THE Airbnb of Samoa ! The best to discover Upolu Island ! The cosy and warmy atmosphere of the rooms will charm you. Denis makes you discover fresh fruit, with a hearty breakfast every morning. She knows where all the best walls on the Samoa Islands. I'll be back.

    Romuald2017-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • I had an excellent stay, absolutely recommended! Very cozy home-like, relaxed environment with a nice pool and a lovely breakfast. The host Denise is very friendly, fun and helpful. I hope I’ll get a chance to visit again one day :)

  • This beautiful home has everything you need, it is spacious and perfect for our children. We have a big family and it is always hard to find a big home in Samoa which caters for our needs. Everything you need is provided for you in the kitchen, from drinking fountain a lot of appliances all ready for use. Big backyard for the children to run around, the rooms are massive and very spacious. Love that there’s a washer and drying, this was a big must for me. No doubt this house has exceeding all my expectations.

    1232017-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed here as a group of 8 - 4 adults, 3 kids, and a baby. There was plenty of space for all of us. The location was great, about 10 minutes drive from Apia and really quiet (apart from the neighbour's dogs). Really friendly hosts.

    Zoë2018-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • What a great time we had in Samoa and one of the best part of our holiday was staying in this beautiful home! There were 8 adults and 2 infants. There was soooooo much space!!!! We even had one room that was untouched. We had everything we needed. Was nice and secluded. You definitely need your own vehicle. Or there are taxis you can call if you don't want to drive. However i would highly recommend getting your own vehicle to save on costs.... rather than rely on taxis. Had the pleasure of meeting Willie on check out day. We checked in late and kept missing him.... but he's def friendly and hospitable. You don't even know that they're there. We all loved our stay there and wouldn't hesitate to book with them again if we're ever in Samoa again. Thank you for opening your home to us and how blessed we were to stay there.

    Lili2017-07-03T00:00:00Z
  • My family and I stayed at Willies house for just over a week while attending our 1st family reunion in Samoa. It was an absolute pleasure to meet Willie and he was very accommodating with our check-in time as we arrived in at 6:30am. He was waiting to greet us with a big smile and ready to answer any questions we had. Our group of 9 family members found Willie's house to be very comfortable, clean, organised and very spacious. We were also fortunate enough to catch the Joseph Parker boxing match while there and watched it in absolute comfort in the spacious lounge with air con and sofa beds. Having a great comfortable spacious house to relax in after a long day out was 1 of the many highlights of our trip to Samoa. Thank you Willie for your generous hospitality and for sharing your beautiful home with us.

    Lydia2018-04-02T00:00:00Z
  • Apia Oasis exceeded all our expectations! Large & spacious, well equiped, beautiful home to spend our time in. We had a party of 12 and there was still space to spare! Great kitchen facilities, BBQ, air con, fans, linen and laundry facilities. Plenty on bathrooms. Clean, modern and had everything we needed. We absolutely loved it!!! Our host Willie made our stay so easy and he was a pleasure to deal with. He went above and beyond to look after my family and I and Apia Oasis will be our go to whenever we travel back to Samoa for sure. Thank you again Willie for having us!

    Seipua2017-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • Willie's house was what we thought it was going to be & a great house for our team. It was big & spacious, nicely cleaned & plenty of room for everyone. The three bathrooms were a great help for the 16 people that stayed there. Willie is a super friendly guy & more than willing to do anything he could to make our stay everything we wanted. I can thoroughly recommend Willie's house!

    John2017-05-22T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time at this mansion of a house! Great location, just high enough up the hill to escape the humidity but still close to everything

    Apia, Upolu, Самоа

    Granny flat attached to a house. Separate private entrance. Very sought after location in prestigious village Vailima. Delicious breakfasts cooked by a chef. Taxi ride to town $5-7 tala, to airport $60 tala. The views are simply amazing! There is an outside kitchen, BBQ and a private outdoor area with lounges and coffee table. Because the house is located higher in the mountain it is a lot cooler than in town. Water cooler in the room Hot water only in main house.
    It’s a studio with its own shower and toilet. Shower has only cold water in the room. But if you really want hot shower you are welcome to come in the main house. There is a private outdoor area with partial views. Shared swimming pool and deck with views.
    The house is located in the dead end of a very nice quiet street. It’s close to RSL museum and a track up mt. Vaia. Close to STREP and Myna’s supermarket. There is a strip of shops very close by with “whipped” ice cream shop, best curry in town and local talented designer. Only 3 min drive to hospital, giordanno’s pizza and Krush cafe. 8 min drive to town and about the same to the Edge. 5 min drive to locally famous “Home” cafe where all tourist gather up on Wednesday’s. 30 mins drive to the other side of the island where the beaches are. 45 min drive to “To Sua” trench. 50 min drive to Lalomanu beach. 50 min drive to airport.
  • It is a very pleasant stay with Zoya family. The place is in cool zone to cool down from the hot of Apia, which I needed it badly. Yet it is close to downtown enough to walk if needed. The breakfasts were such a treat and Zoya's husband, being a chef, treated me with really yummy diners, even fresh tuna sashimi which you normally won't get from restaurants that often. While their daughters and pets kept me entertained during my whole stay. Their tips and insights about Samoa are much appreciated. I would highly recommend Zoya as THE host to any people who visits Apia and wants a perfect sweet spot to base their journey around Upolu. So many thanks for all your help, Zoya and family :D

    Apia, Upolu, Самоа

    Interior/architect designed studio with fully equipped kitchenette, bathroom and laundry. Located in a tranquil setting in the hills above Apia, the property is approximately 12-15 minutes' drive from the centre of town and a 15 minute drive over the hills to the south coast with its many beautiful beaches. The studio is ideal for mature couples, solo and business travelers.
    The studio is located on the lower level of our recently completed home. It has a private entrance and large glass sliding doors opening on to a private patio overlooking gardens, Mt Vaea and a spectacular view of eastern Apia, the reef and ocean beyond. There is a queen-size bed and a living area with a comfortable sofa and coffee table as well as a small dining table (with 2 chairs) that can either be used inside the studio or moved to the patio so that guests can dine whilst looking out to the beautiful garden and views. The kitchenette is equipped with all essentials and there is a full-size refrigerator with separate freezer compartment. A wall-mounted TV (on a swivel fixture) is able to be viewed from the bed as well as the seating area. Lounge chairs, with cushions and a sun umbrella are available for the patio. The washing machine and tub are concealed behind cupboard doors. Our property is gated and fenced and the studio has its own gate and driveway. There are mosquito screens on all the louvred windows and a mosquito net is also provided. Because of the altitude (approximately 430 metres above sea level)temperatures are generally 2-3 degrees cooler than in Apia and there is usually a refreshing breeze. There is a well-stocked supermarket a few minutes' drive away as well as a number of roadside fruit and vegetable stalls.
    Our neighbourhood is quiet and residential. We are almost at the midpoint of the Cross Island Road between the north and south coasts. The view down to eastern Apia, the reef and expansive ocean is spectacular, especially when there is a colourful sunset.
  • Jeanne’s studio was great, everything you need but also great special touches such as fresh flowers. It is located up the mountain with great view over Apia. What really made my stay special was Jeanne and her husband’s hospitality. They really made me feel welcomed!

    Pauline2018-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • What can we say - Jeanne's place, perched on the mountainside amongst verdant, colourful gardens is a true gem. Perfectly located just a short distance outside Apia, you get a sense of both being 'away from it' whilst also feeling safe and secure. The apartment itself is private and self-contained, but with daily (and frequent!) visits from Jeanne's beautiful dogs, meaning it really does feel like a 'home from home'. Jeanne herself was so very generous in her hospitality and provided us with an abundance of local knowledge, as extra touches such as filtered water whenever we needed it and a basket of fruit. The Studio was the perfect base from which to explore Samoa, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone venturing to this beautiful part of the world.

    Benjamin2018-06-17T00:00:00Z
  • Jeanne's Studio apartment suited us because we could buy local food and cook it ourselves, or eat out, which ever we felt like. We had lots of raw and cooked Tuna, Cray fish and local fruit and veg. Papaya, topped with thin skinned babanas every day for breakfast, went down a treat. The apartment is quite high above Apia, with a view down to the city and sea with the coral reef clearly visible. It takes no more than 10 minutes to drive into Apia, unless you have to follow a taxi doing 20 km/hr all the way. We hired a car at the airport, booked in advance from Samoana Rentals. (Cheap and very easy to deal with) This allowed us to be cleared customs and knocking on Jeanne's door, in just over an hour after landing. We recieved a warm welcome, and during our stay had all the help we needed, without being in the least looked over. It was like having the beautiful large garden to ourselves. The apartment is of good size, modern and has all the comforts of home. No oven, but an electric fry pan allows most things and fit's a good sized cray fish. Parking is beside the apartment, there are shops and supermarkets nearby, and stalls selling drinking coconuts, fruit and veg on the road side. There are plenty of Taxis, and the bus travels regularly in to Apia down the main road, 100 meters away. The buses are locally built on trucks, have no windows. They are gaily painted each with it's own name. We visited resorts to swim and lounge by the pools and enjoyed it, but the freedom we enjoyed at Jeanne's suited us so much more. Highly recommended.

  • We stayed at Jeanne's studio in Samoa for a one week - and what a week it was! The comfort of home but felt like a hotel. Jeanne and her husband were excellent hosts, giving us the perfect balance of attention and privacy. We were greeted every morning with a delicious coffee and spectacular mountain top views of the island and ocean. The studio has a private entrance and is a short 10-12minute drive to Apia town, smack bam in the middle of Upolu just off a main road (Jeanne gave us perfect directions so we didn't even need our maps to get there from the airport!) The studio is absolutely perfect for 2 people with cooking facilities, a large spacious bathroom and laundry too! All newly built and in mint condition. I could go on an on but anyone staying there will get more than they expect! 10/10

  • Jeanne's Studio is very new, clean, very well appointed and located in an area of Apia which is quiet, cool (compared to downtown Apia) and very private. It was ideal for me as a single business traveller for a 2 week stay. Supermarkets and taxi are reasonably close by. I will definitely be staying at Jeanne's for my next business trip to Apia in August. Jeanne is a delightful host who respected my privacy but was always available to help me with local advice and tips.

  • The host was very friendly and accommodating. Well appointed and comfortable with stunning views. Great spot, thanks Jeanne!

  • Lovely, modern apartment with a stunning view of the town below. High enough up the mountain to escape the heat, but still close enough to all the action in Apia. Jeanne is a great host as well.

  • The studio was absolutely wonderful and I'm actually a bit sad to be checking out! The location is fabulous, as it's close to anything you need yet not too far from town. There is such a peaceful vibe in the place, as you stare out the large glass doors over the beautiful gardens, ocean view and town below. Jeanne is by far the best host I've had yet, quick to respond, offering fresh fruit, filtered water and clean towels, etc any time. But on top of that, just an absolutely lovely person. The studio has everything you could need and it was an absolute joy to stay. Highly recommended!

    Our 2 bedroom apartments are clean with beautiful gardens surrounding property. Both rooms have air-con with hot water shower. Close to city and 2 minutes to sports complex with golf course. Safe, quiet and secure neighbourhood. Green environment and close to shopping. Love the big trees along the driveway from the main road.
    Surrounded by big trees, inluding breadfruit trees, banana trees, green, cool and clean environment....
    The neighbourhood is a small village community where most of the families are related and each one looks out for the other.
  • Sesilia's place is close to town and everything that I needed. It is spacious and clean and the photos do not do the place justice. It is far better than the photos. Even though we had a bad start with this trip we will be back again. I was unable to check in on the first night due to a customer error, who thought they had booked the apartment that was meant for me. So I checked in the next day (lucky I had family otherwise I would have been stranded). Also there was no one I could speak with onsite, whenever I went to the host house there was never anyone that I could actually speak to about the mishap. In saying all of this I will be back because it is in the best location for me.

  • Apartment was spacious, clean and tidy on arrival with fresh linen on the beds and good quality clean towels provided. Lovely atmosphere where you get a taste of life in Samoa as the apartments are set amongst a small village community. Great modern washing machine, fridge and gas stove/oven. Sesilia and her family was very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble to help us out with minor things during our stay. We were a family of four and found there was plenty of space for us all to enjoy relaxing at the end of a busy day. Thanks for the stay, we loved it!

  • It was an amazing trip I was very pleased with the apartment and the neighborhood. Her nieces Moana and Lisa were exceptionally wonderful and are now dear friends of mine. I highly recommend staying here. Sesilia was warm and friendly and very well spoken. It's close to the city Apia and everything you need is close by. I will be returning to this beautiful island, I love Samoa!

  • Lovely apartment, air-con is a life saver and Sesilia sorted me a car to rent for a very reasonable price whilst in Upolu. Thanks for a lovely stay
