Samuel's Guesthouse is about five kilometres north of the Lonorore airfield on Pentecost. There's a nice river here and good bush walking in the hills. Olfala Sam enjoys showing people his gardens and vanilla plantation, a half day "tour".

The guesthouse was old and run down in February 2005 but a replacement was nearing completion.
