Hi, I’m glad you found us!

We’re the Clayvilles, former rat-race prisoners, turned care-free island family. We moved to American Samoa in June, 2017 and have spent our time wisely… exploring the islands and learning everything we can about island life and Samoan culture. To read more about our story, see our About page.

Readers Looking to Get In Touch

If you’re here for the first time, Afio Mai (Samoan for Welcome)! Feel free to drop us a line and introduce yourself.

If you’re a return reader, welcome back and thanks for your continued support. You can introduce yourself too, it’s never too late to make new friends.

Tell us what brought you to AmSamFam. Are you looking for a tropical vacation where you’ll be surrounded by natural beauty, beautiful people, and authentic culture? Are you moving here and wondering where or how to start planning? Maybe you’re moving back home after a long absence. Or you might be a local, just wondering where to find all the hidden treasures you see on our Instagram (there’s no shame in that, exploring these islands is our PASSION!).

Let us know. We love sharing all our island knowledge and adventures!

Also, make sure to search our website to find what you’re looking for and leave a comment on the relevant blog post to ask specific questions or share your own related experience. We love to hear your stories, too.
