Our History
The business is locally owned and operated by John Deve and his wife. Deve is a former Police officer and comes from Malaita and Marau on East Guadalcanal.
His wife is from Malaita province.

He first started a petrol business at his village in Marau after leaving high school in 1990. He started his business with $100 because a 44-gallon petrol drum costs $97.Deve said his petrol businesses ended during the ethnic tension from 1998-2002 after militants destroyed his depot.
As such, he turned to taxi, selling fish, running a trade shop at Kukum highway and second-hand clothing but things did not work out for him.
Deve turned to accommodation in 2010 and decided to venture into tourism with advice from Francis Deve.
