*If you're traveling from Europe, the UK, or the USA to the Cook Islands, we recommend you spread your stay between Rarotonga and Aitutaki, and also add on 3 nights in Atiu, and even Mangaia. Flights depart regularly from Aitutaki to Atiu, and Atiu to Rarotonga or Mangia, so you can add this additional experience on with little extra cost. Each island offers its own unique experience, and guests who have traveled to the Cook Islands from a long distance have reflected they wish they had known of the other islands, and how easy it was to travel between islands....Read more

Very new and modern self catering accommodation when staying on aitutaki. This Villa has everything you need to ensure you leave with a smile on your face. Louvre windows allow the beautiful breeze to flow through as well as ceiling fans and and air conditioner to cool you down. A large deck area for Bbqs and entertaining or to sit and read a book as you look out toward the most beautiful blue water surrounding the island. The kitchen has everything you need and the owners have thought of everything possible to make your stay perfect. This Villa sleep up to seven using the settee. There is also a TV and video player just in case. As everywhere is never far away from anything on aitutaki this is a great option and only a short scooter or car trip to the town area for supplies. The owners Puk and Sara are continually adding their touch to their property when they visit to ensure all visitors wont be disappointed. (Photos had trouble loading so I will try and add later)
