I travel alot and have stayed at many hotels, this accommodation stands out for me as I feel I havent left home!!! Such a haven hidden in the bustle of Central Tonga. Ofa the owner will ensure you are well taken care of with love! Hospitality is superb and by far the best Tonga has to offer.

I stayed here for 2 nights and an extra day (more on this later) when my two daughters and arrived in Tongatapu on our way to Vava'u.

I stayed here for over a week in 2014 during my stay in Tongatapu. I found the owner and his family friendly, polite and helpful. The accommodation was safe, clean, and modern by Tonga standards. They provided fresh clean bed sheet linen too. Its also an easy 5 to 10 minutes drive to the town center, Salote port, the town...

Stayed here in September 2015 as a couple with lovely Ola the owner who was exceptional in service and enthusiasm. Great chats on the veranda and information from well traveled Ola. Showers were cold - not sure if it was just the one we used, or all of them, but that was the only negative. Substantial breakfast and good room....

We arrived without any luggage, (the airline had lost our bags) and Ola went above and beyond to help us out. The service we experienced was excellent, the rooms are big, spotlessly clean, light and airy. Breakfast is included in the price...

We had the chance to stay at this guesthouse in May 2015. We travelled as a family of four and two separate adults, and all enjoyed our stay.
