I have to admit this accommodation has its charm in being an old rustic cottage. To other people, it may just seem run down which is also true.. I'd say there are better places to stay in Apia and the 8.2 rating on other booking websites is overrated. It would be good if you fancy making your own meals though... More

This accommodation is in a good location to be able to walk into Apia town. It however very basic and falling apart. The toilet leaked water onto the floor when it was flushed and the kitchen cupboards were falling apart. After we complained we were moved to the 'best' room. I don't know why they didn't put us there straight... More

We stayed here for two nights (after visiting Savaii) and felt right at home. The cottages are set in lovely well maintained gardens and it was a pleasure to walk through them to our little beach front cottage - a real bonus to be able to sit and enjoy the view. While not new, the cottage had everything we needed,... More

My partner and I stayed here for a week and loved every minute of it. Flora is a generous and friendly host, and the property is close enough to the main town to walk, but also out far enough to be peaceful.

An excellent choice for the budget traveller - the cabins are roomy and include a kitchen and cooking utensils. They can get a bit hot (no air-con, just fans) but neither are they costly. Handy to Palolo Deep, a walk to town - what more can you want? The staff - led by the wonderful Flora - were terrific and... More

My husband and I stayed here for a week and enjoyed the experience. Don't expect high quality - it's a similar experience to living in a beach cabin or bach (in NZ), i.e. "shabby chic". It is a short walk away from restaurants at the wharf area and is just across the road from a beach. The cyclone spoiled the... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 months while awaiting our permanent accommodation. It was very homely and comfortable. The layout of the cottage works well and even has a spare single bed if you want to have a guest join you. All the basic cooking utensils are available and anything you want, the owners will provide. The owners... More

This place is really run down. The price is not that good. For the same price you can get a mid range hotel room. I am not sure why the description in Frommers, Jasons, Samoa Travel etc say that it is a good place to stay. I was actually surprised with how bad the condition really was. The cottages were...
