Slow pace of life off the beaten path

Had a great time in Samoa at this property. Everything as advertised, safe secure property with comfortable amenities. More than expected spaciousness. Spent two weeks here seeing Upolu and enjoyed it. Tepora & Lena were helpful and friendly, as was everyone else we met in Samoa. Property was very beautiful true to photos, wonderful grass driveway. Kitchen was well equipped with gas stove, modern fridge, etc. Only a few over the air channels on the TV, but one showed a movie most every night. Corner store available right nearby within walking distance (limited) and large supermarkets available in about 20-30 minute drive.

Only concerns was lack of fans (only two rooms had ceiling fans) but Lena was able to get us a portable fan, and of course, the ever present tropical bugs. The screens do a good job keeping out the flying ones. A clothes dryer is available at the fale, but the house has a line in the yard and lines under the carport to dry despite the rain. The road from the main sealed road to the driveway can be a bit rough after seasonal rains, so enquire as to conditions.
Owner's Response: Dennis,

Thanks so much for the review. Hope to have you back again.

Cheers,

Tim
