We had a wonderful time staying at Amuri Sands for our 6 nights on Aitutaki. The bungalow was compact, tidy and comfortable and just a few metres from a beautiful beach. We enjoyed many afternoons sitting on the deck, sipping a glass of something and watching the sun go down. Mark could not have been more helpful. He picked us...

Kia Orana Keith Thank you so much for your review of our little property. I am sure we will see you and Adrienne again in our little paradise called Aitutaki. Yes the beach is stunning from the deck especially with the changing colours of the lagoon and the beautiful sunsets. As for the coconuts, there is always an abundance but...

The bungalow is nice but it is the location which is the big draw. The view from the deck is amazing! Only a small stretch of sand with pretty palmtrees seperates you from the gorgeous lagoon with good snorkeling. It hardly gets any better then this. The bungalow itself is quite small but everything is provided and it is very...

Kia Orana GP and Astrid So glad you enjoyed your stay and your comments are appreciated. Yes the aspect from the deck is truly amazing, looking out over the lagoon to the reef. Plus the added benefit of only two units is a definite advantage for the guests. A long way from the Netherlands but hopefully we may see you...

We've stayed here 5 times and always enjoyed it. Mark is unfailingly friendly and helpful. The place is good value for money, in a great location, quiet and private. Perfect for singles or couples who like to watch their budget and don't like crowds.

Kia Orana As always, we loved having you here again - the good company and interesting conversation, as well as watching you both unwind, relax and melt into your environment. It's a pleasure to behold. We really hope you decide to come back again. Dinner (on us) instead of lunch next time! Kia Manuia Mark

The location is perfect. Mark is a cool guy. This was our 2nd stay here and can't wait to come back again. Highly recommended. The garden setting on one side and the spectacular beach on the other. What more could you ask for.
