The Villa has easy access to water taxi's from the main wharf in town, and lagoon cruises departing from nearby. Located 400m from the water, it has stunning views of the lagoon and open ocean from its expansive deck.

The Villa is self-contained, has high quality furnishings, and a fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances and an island bench. The kitchen has everything you require for a comfortable stay including oven, microwave, blender, kettle, toaster, coffee plunger, high quality pots and pans, and even containers for you to pack a picnic lunch for the day.

The water has been UV treated and filtered on site for your convenience, and means you do not need to buy drinking water.

The villa has prepaid WIFI access and phone with free local calls.

The huge balcony has views of both the open ocean and the Aitutaki lagoon including Maina and Honeymoon Islands. During whale season you can see whales from the balcony.

400m from the water, and a 5 minute walk from town, you can catch water taxi's to your favorite island location, or go on a day cruise of the lagoon leaving from just around the corner.

This beautiful Villa is family friendly with cot and portable high chair available at no charge.

It comfortably sleeps 5 people (the standard tariff covers up to 5 people). A maximum of 7 guests can be accommodated with an additional charge of $20 per person per night ( for persons 6 and 7).

Transfers from the AIrport to the Villa return are available upon request at a cost of $20 per person.

*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.

Response from the owner Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your stay. We have replaced the blender, thank you for bringing it to our attention. Clothes dryers are not a standard option in the Cook Islands for many reasons and we have been conscious to make sure that the villa has both under cover and outdoor clothes hanging options. Unfortunately the chickens are something I cannot control. It is 1 km into town but we know on a humid day it can feel like a lot more. I hope you enjoyed your holiday to the Cook Islands.
