Property description

Our house is located on the Samoan Island of Upolu, in the village of Saoluafata. If you are looking to completely get away from all the hustle and bustle of your busy life, this is the place for you! Located close to the capital city of Apia, you still have access to modern activities, groceries and hospitals. We would recommend renting a car to fully experience the whole island during your visit. It takes about three hours drive to get from one side to the other - you will experience pristine beaches, friendly natives, expert surfing, snorkeling, eco hikes, fresh water swimming & waterfalls with natural water slides. Visit the site of James Michener's 'Return to Paradise' at the beach of Matareva, starring Gary Cooper - filmed in 1953. Another main attraction is the grave site of Robert Louis Stevenson in the Village of Vailima. Visit the luxurious resort/spa 'Aggie Grey's' on the northwestern end of the island (adjacent to the Int'l airport) where the popular TV series 'Survivor' was filmed.

Car: Recommended

This is a fairly new house (built 2003), located right on the beach! It is very secluded, yet close to town (approx. 15 miles) and very close to lots of fun activities and island attractions. If you want a true, Samoan experience you have come to the right place.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2003

About: I am a direct descendant of the village founders. My family has lived here since time began. Listing a 'year purchased' is really telling you what year the house was built. We are very proud to offer this house as a place for all to enjoy.

Why Apia:
This is my family's land.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Staying here puts you directly on the beach. This is unique in Samoa, because typically you cannot just pull up to any beach and swim, rather, you must ask the chief permission (he most likely does not speak English) and pay a small fee for beach use. There are many Samoan traditions like this. Also, there are not many islands in existence today that aren't over run by tourism - this is truly a native experience that will change your life.
