8Holty's Hideaway is owned and operated by local couple Tim and Paula Holt. Originally from Australia,Tim comes from a background of health and fitness and Lawn Maintenance, Paula's background is also Health and Fitness as well as a career in Real Estate. They fell in love with this tropical paradise, coming to holiday here 3 years in a row and eventually married on Ha'atafu Beach in August 2009.
Both have a great love for the beach, Tim is an Avid Surfer/Fisherman, so they feel truly blessed to be able to reside in this Paradise.
Upon arrival and settling into the Village life they both became supporters of the local school, supporting it through helping out with Sporting Carnivals and Fundraising, Paula also Volunteers 2 days per week to help out at the school teaching English to the students and also doing the computer work for the teachers, this has been a great way to become part of the Village Lifestyle and now feel really part of the Tongan Culture.
Tim and Paula made this beautiful part of the world their home in April 2010 and took over the Holiday House. They live onsite and are available anytime to assist with arranging local activities or tours for your group, ensuring a memorable stay in this exquisite South Pacific paradise.
Tim and Paula have done extensive renovations since taking over the Holiday House and have now included a Licenced Café to better cater for their Guest's. Guest's will be able to have a complete package with their Holiday for those who do not want to self cater or just have a night off from cooking.
We have also added a Garden Fale and 2 Serviced Pool side Fale's for rent for those that the Main Holiday House may be too large for it sleeps up to 4 so is perfect for the small Family or Couple.
The Cafe will also cater on weekends for day visitors wanting a nice place to have lunch whilst enjoying Beautiful Ha'atafu Beach.
In the 8 years since taking over the Business Tim and Paula are happy to have been awarded 8 years in a row Best Holiday Rental in Tongatapu by Trip Advisor.
