“Perfect Location, Fabulous Wildlife and Birding, Great Value”
Reviewed 26 March 2018 for a stay in February 2018

The title of this review, doesn't even begin to cover what this accommodation has to offer. The clever and appealing way that this property has been built is the best. It allows for the perfect combo of fruit and veg being locally grown (like in the front yard) and, native habitat for wildlife!! Amazing! The completely stunning garden, also functions partially as a yard plantation, is full of birds, lizards, pollinators, fruit bats, insects and sometimes the wonderful staff and/or owners. It takes a lot of hard work to make grounds such as these and, the Fa'le really was just the icing on the cake. It's very private if you like or, could be shared with a big family! Note: Give the Auntie the room downstairs for easier access to the loo.
Because the house is farther up the hill than many other Resorts, it is tolerable even for us weak, Oregon Coast residents - no Aircon necessary. The full kitchen is great, even if you are just heating up leftover street food. We saved a ton of money not having to pay high prices for food : )
Check out my entry in the guest book for advice on which flowering shrubs and, section of the grounds to look at for some exiting wildlife sightings!
Loved it and hope you do too.

“Suprim cultural experience”
Reviewed 19 February 2018 for a stay in January 2018

This is our third time coming back to Samoa and staying at Samoan Highland Hideaway retreat. The view from the balcony is very special. The flowers and native plants, all well trimmed and kept. The plantation offers all the seasonal fruit. An experience of participating in Umu (native Samoan way of cooking food on the fire) was the gem of each of our trips. The fale is just stunning. Beautiful, high sealing, exquisitely decorated in traditional craft style and yet with all the comforts you could wish for. Due to the design of traditional Samoan fale it is never hot in it, even on the hottest day. Because the property is situated in the middle of the island it allows exploring every corner of Upolu. The hosts are very knowledgeable about the island and its culture. It was great to go on discovery tours with Tim. We have got to visit beautiful beaches, hidden lakes, stunning waterfalls and swimming holes. We would definitely recommend Samoan Highland Retreat and hope to be back again soon.

Best friends and guests ever. It seems that when we have such guests staying with us they create within us the supreme urge to explore and show off the beauty on this wonderful paradise Samoa.

Our stay here was really a HOME away from HOME. We rented out boh the fale and main house and we were all more than impressed with our stay here. Maria and Tim are so friendly and their holiday home represent who they are as people, warm, friendly, hospitible and lovely.It really is a slice of paradise the homes and we can't wait to plan anoher trip, as we would definitely use here as one of our homes away from home. Great for big families and very children friendly. Staff here are incredible as well, Ioane one of our favourite people we met on our trip.

“Fantastic alternative to a hotel”
Reviewed 24 October 2016 for a stay in July 2016
2
people found this review helpful

We stayed here for four nights with young children (6 and 8) in July. As an alternative to a hotel in Apia, we would highly recommend it. it's an easy 15 minute drive from Apia in a quiet, tranquil location. Made a great base for exploring the island. When we got home from a day exploring, it was a very peaceful place to relax, no fuss. The house itself is beautiful, with high, exposed wood ceilings, based on traditional architecture.

You definitely need a high clearance or 4WD car to get to it.

We had a party of six, our cousins stayed in January and loved it. We stayed in Feb. They were so accomodating, great hospitality. Maria and Tim went the extra mile. The Fale was so beautiful, each room was special. It was great to have all the cooking supplies the fresh fruit everyday was great. Very close to all the tourist destinations, we are planning our next stay in 2018. It was a tropical paradise.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?
