Vailima - Samoan Home of Robert Louis Stevenson Biographies Geography Famous People

Seeking a better climate to help him stay healthy, Robert Louis Stevenson and his wife, Fanny Osbourne, settled on the Samoan island of Opolu.

Joining them were members of their extended family, including Stevenson’s mother.

Together, R.L.S. and Fanny enjoyed their South Pacific home—depicted in this image—for four years. It was here that R.L.S. died on December 3, 1894.

Vailima, as they called their home, is now a museum.
