Robert Louis Stevenson House,Villa Vailima, Samoa.

Welcome to my visitor from Samoa, I hope I am making a reasonable job of writing about your country.

We took a trip up into the cooler hills not very far from Apia to visit one of the things you just have go see while in Samoa, The Robert Louis Stevenson house.
called Villa Vailima. a very elegant gracious house.

 It is set in a huge area of beautiful garden and native bush with little streams and lots of birds.

There were lots of pretty flowers to enjoy.

The old house has been completely renovated and redecorated and is looking magnificent, it is cared for by a team of workers. We were taken on a tour of the two story building, the rooms were few but really huge.filled with furniture of the era and the many items of memorabilia were very interesting. An enjoyable visit.

We found these unusual statues at the back in the restaurant area used for conferences and weddings.
