Property description

This executive home is beautifully appointed, completely enclosed and fully furnished. We are semi-off-grid with solar power (battery and mains back-up), rainwater tanks, and our own plantation. Mango, banana, papaya and avocado are a few pleasures awaiting you.

The main split level house has four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, modern and fully equipped kitchen, 60’ long verandah opening on to a dream deck overlooking the private valley. This house is ideal for family and especially numerous couples.


The Main Dwelling: This split level home is set on a reasonably steep incline facing the northwest looking out over a small private valley. A beautiful modern kitchen opening onto the lounge room is surrounded by an enormous enclosed L-shaped verandah. Also upstairs we have the master bedroom adjoined by a full ensuite, another bedroom, full-size bathroom and laundry. Downstairs consists of 2 more large bedrooms, another full bathroom and spacious office adjoined by a reading room.

The verandah opens onto a new deck that gives you the impression of being on top of a mountain. You will love to experience the brilliance of the moon in its fullness and the wonderful evening breezes; not to mention our local coffee in the early morning. Serenity, extreme quiet, very secure and insect proof.

Aternative Traditional Samoan Fale: Our new but traditional Samoan Fale (home) will enable you to experience all the uniqueness of this very old Samoan design especially extremely effective ventilation. The ancient design has been unique only to the Samoan Islands. The oval shape is covered with by an extremely high and domed roof enhancing the fale's coolness. The interior is intricately hand finished with local materials bathing you in timeless Samoan tradition.
