Artist Housing

The Tiapapata Art Centre is located 8 km from Apia, the capital of Samoa, in a lush environment that is home to the ma'oma'o, an endemic and endangered bird. It is a 5-minute walk from the Baha'i House of Worship, a serene place for meditation with over 20 acres of beautiful grounds and gardens. The basic rate below assumes 20 hours of service or a combination of service and contributed art (negotiated separately).

Treehouse

A fully furnished treehouse that can accommodate a small family (one double bed and one single bed) is located just above the studio. Nestled in a mango tree with a cold water outdoor shower, guests must endure the dawnsong of the many native birds that reside in the surrounding forest. Mosquito nets hang over both beds.
