10/10 Exceptional

Loved my stay here. Long dirt road down to a wonderful beach. Hosts were above great. Amenities are what you’d assume for an off grid place. Underestimated the sound of the waves at night but it was all apart of the experience.

10/10 Exceptional

Exactly as advertised - lovely beachfront fales, excellent view, lovely soft beach, warm water, and stunning waves. The owner is lovely, and great local food. Now, if you're looking for top end and fancy, this isn't it, keeping in mind where you are. The owner has livestock, which are present, but kept away from the resort part. The fales have lights, and the nearby bar has power. Mosquito net and bed were comfortable. Breakfast was typically papaya, coconut, eggs, bread and tea/coffee. Dinner was a meat, tarot, and some veg curry. Delicious, cooked well. I found it peaceful, with great clean water and good pressure in the showers. Grounds were kept clean, and I always felt safe.

4/10 Fair

When we arrived, nobody knew nothing about our arrival, so our fale wasn't set up and we had to have dinner in the bar next to the fales, and dinner was already paid when booking

Gorgeous location but very poor hosts. No explanation of facilities or when meals would be served. No WC paper, food very poor.

8/10 Very good

This property was relaxing and off the beaten track. I enjoyed the snorkeling close by and also watching reef sharks at high tide was a treat as well. The food was awesome, fresh fish, pork, traditional food it was nice. Dave is a character and I enjoyed his stories. If your wanting an experience close to nature this place is for you, it's not luxury but the friendly people and relaxed nature of the place males up for that I'm my opinion.

Beautiful place to stay. Our favourite on Upolu Island! The long driveway was bumpy and had a few puddles in the rain but makes it a beautiful getaway spot. Dave and his family are so friendly and helpful. Dave took the time to chat with us and make us feel welcome, give us advice on other places to see too. Dave also told us where to find the family rainwater tank so we could refill with fresh water. Dave’s wife is an amazing cook with local & traditional meals for breakfast and dinner. We had delicious fish, noodles, breakfast spread, taro .etc. Their teenage daughters help with guests and keep the gardens and 20 fales clean and tidy. Their friendly dogs often sleep under the guest fales to keep watch. If someone happens to wander up the beach they will stand guard. Very reassuring for open fales! Lunch can be found at the corner of the property with Naga, his wife and two young daughters. This is a waterfront bar/restaurant and their puppy dogs will keep you company on the beachfront while you wait for food. Local beers available (yum!) Naga (an Aussie man) will take you out to the break for surfing. The extensive reef stretches out about 200metres with plenty of fish. There is a break wall about 2-6 metres from shore depending on tide so little kids can swim safely. Rooms are comfy enough with a simple mattress, linens provided and a mosquito net over the bed. Toilet facilities include indoor or outdoor shower which were pretty clean but rustic. Loved it!
