    A lovely place to visit. No wonder RLS lost his heart in Samoa! The whole estate is beautiful. The hike to the top of the hill to the grave of RL Stevenson is a must! There is a nice gift shop at the estate where you can purchase a book or other souvenir.

    Definitely a must see for RLS enthusiasts, stunning views and deep history of the Tusitala (teller of stories). Museum tours are very educational.

    It is a beautiful house with nice large grounds area and a beautiful view. The guide was really good and nice, the place is immaculately kept and knowing that it once belonged to and was much loved by R.L. Stevenson made it all the more intriguing for me.
