The Vailima House


I am in the process of finding property in Samoa, birthplace of my parents, to build a family compound. Vailima is high on a hill with a vast view of the ocean. It's where Robert Louis Stevenson chose to live out his last days in 1894. The weather is hot and humid year-round so I need an open, breezy layout. My design background is digital so suggestions are most welcome. - GP
