Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Such an amazing place to stay! We stayed as a couple for 7 nights in the Superior View Villa which is closest to the sea. We saw whales daily without leaving the villa. Fascinating watching the fish on the reef below. The facilities in the kitchen were excellent but with local cafes & restaurants serving fresh local fish we didn't need to cook much. Try Kaiika restaurant for Japanese food & fresh pizzas. Having a bath on the deck watching the whales was very special. Sometimes the boat arrives late with supplies for the supermarket so don't expect what you have at home, but isn't that why we visit places like Niue where there is less stress than our normal lives. It felt like the safest place in the world! The locals are friendly & wave to you when driving. Hiring a rental car is a great way to experience the island. Thank you Lau & Avi for providing a perfect place to stay. Would definitely recommend this accommodation.

Whales on your doorstep . Literally . During our fabulous stay we saw whales almost every day - some only 100m from our deck . And heard their songs ! Also spinner dolphins almost daily putting on incredibly aerial displays . Who needs tv or wifi ( although there are both ) when you have ringside seats to the only show in town . Lau’s Getaway is perfect . Self catering but fully serviced three times a week . Such a bonus . Decks from both levels so you don’t lose track of the sealife swimming by and the best views . Kitchen has all you need to self cater - and I strongly suggest you factor that in if you’re staying longer than a week . Good size fridge freezer to store what you bring with you ( and do bring food with you including fresh fruit and veg which is allowed by customs as long as not home grown ) . Generous breakfast pack and a bottle of wine to welcome you as well as fresh coconut . Much appreciated. Avi and Lau are there for any questions, but you have all the privacy you want . Make sure you stop by their restaurant- Kai Iki . Just great . And you get a generous discount too . You could stay cheaper , but you’ll never get a view like this - or the opportunity of a lifetime to see. whales sailing by . It’s paradise . Highly recommended and we will be back . Thanks Avi and Lau x

Lau’s Getaway was absolutely perfect. It has everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. The first two days we were in Niue it rained almost non-stop so we spent quite a bit of time in the villa but there is so much space that the rain didn’t matter at all. The kind size bed is one of the comfiest I’ve slept in. There was an extra blanket if required which was nice because coming from Dunedin I’m used to having lots of weight on me from blankets when I sleep. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need to prepare meals. Avi provides an incredible breakfast basket with the necessities which is so helpful. We brought bacon to Niue with us and had bacon and eggs for breakfast several times using the eggs and bread provided by Avi. The view from the two balconies is out of this world. It was where we spent the majority of our time when we were at the villa watching the ocean and the dolphins that swim past almost every day during the day and watching the stars at night. The Scenic Circle resort is about 900 metres down the road which was handy for happy hour, takeaway pizza or a meal out. Town is about a 10-15 minute drive, with the airport only a five minute drive. We hired a car from Avi and this was such a must. We loved that everyone waved as we drove past and the layer back speed limits really got us into holiday mode. Finally my partner lost his phone early in the trip however by word of mouth Avi managed to find this for us (sadly just after we left) and has posted this back. Thank you so much Avi for making this an incredible holiday we will never forget. We loved our time in Niue and staying at Lau’s Getaway. We will definitely be back.

Amazing location. Great hosts! all you can wish for! Avi takes care and helps organize things, his wife Lau is a gem helping with cleanup during a week's stay to make it even more enjoyable. From Bathrobes to nice bathroom amenties - besides the best view possible! - and even breakfast supplies this place does't leave any open wishes. We LOVED the privacy and watching dophins from sitting in the XXL bathtub which we used more as a cool-off mini pool - simply fantastic. Best hosts you can imagine and best views! We will be back during whale season but there was so much to explore - Great! watch my pics on Insta about this amazing place bexclusive66

Simply magic!! We loved every moment at Lau's Getaway. The views, sunsets, brilliant colours of the ocean were breathtaking. We enjoyed coffee every morning watching the whales, and dolphins play. All our needs were met, in this beautiful piece of paradise. We will definitely be back.

It has to be one of the highlights of our South Pacific Islands tour. Lau's Getaway was the perfect place to enjoy this pristine island. Excellent viewing decks both on the ground floor and 1st floor to marvel at the dolphins splashing away and bluer than blue waters crashing over the reef. The villa was spotless and had everything to make a comfortable stay. Avi, the owner organised a vehicle for the week which is essential if you want to explore this small but beautiful island. Niue is a small country, so you will not get fast food joints, high rise hotels, and hoards of travellers. Long may that continue. We certainly will not forget our wonderful week...

Unable to fault this property. Perfect location, friendly helpful hosts, and thoughtfully presented accomodation. As soon as we walked in the unspoilt view of the ocean greeted us and we saw our first pod of dolphins within 5 minutes of arriving. This was clearly a sign of things to come and we were visited by dolphins and whales every day. We were also treated to brightly coloured fish and sea snakes whenever we were dining on the bottom deck. Such a quiet peaceful spot it was hard to tear ourselves away to visit all the amazing snorkelling sights Niue has to offer. The accomodation is in a perfect location, lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves, and in the morning just sit up in bed to see the sea life as soon as you open your eyes. I loved the attention to detail such as the chilled fresh coconuts on arrival, bathrobes, and a grocery arrival pack that kept us going most of the week. We also loved the provision of the binoculars, and the day bed on the top floor which we spent many a night star gazing from. Avi was so helpful and nothing was too much effort, and Lau keeps the place spotless. We only have positive things to say about Lau’s, and Niue and we can’t wait to go back. Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise with us.

Absolutely hands down the best accommodation in Niue. From the nespresso machine, to the little make up remover wipes, no detail was too much to be provided. Stunning views with whales swimming past and a luxurious private bath on the deck with a huge daybed. The shower is built for 2+++ and has railhead as well. Immaculately clean, av equipment, telescope, binoculars, rental car included, treats in the fridge, I truly cannot fault this stunning place. The second photo was a whale I snapped on the deck, one of dozens.

Beautiful accommodation with amazing views! We saw dolphins swimming by every day and even saw 4 times a whale. It has everything you need from a fully equipped kitchen, large double bed to amazing views from the deck where you have a daybed and even an outdoor bath. We were welcomed very well by Avi and Lau on our arrival, and you could contact them also anytime when needed. Thanks again Avi for assisting us with sorting out our rental car issue! They also have a restaurant in town with delicious dishes. Highly recommended and we absolutely will stay again on our next visit to Niue!

From the booking process, all the way through to arrival and departure, we had a 5 star experience. Thank you so much to Avi and Lau for hosting us in your holiday accommodation for the first week of our honeymoon. We have already recommended your place to our friends and family due to your hospitality and responsiveness. We can't wait to come back and see whales at the doorstep from the stunning vista (in the balcony bathtub, or daybed). Thank you again for making our stay so memorable.
