Spent a week in this villa - everything you need for a comfortable stay and nice touches like fresh welcoming flowers, bread and milk in fridge. House is well ventilated and modern. It's a bit away from the main tourist areas, which we thought was a plus, but everything is easy driving distance, and local shops within walking distance. Due exceedingly rocky beach we never swam out front but view is lovely and so is the sound of the waves - something those based on the lagoon don't get. Would highly recommend for a relaxing stay for a family or friends house share.

Many thanks for taking the time to post a review about your stay.
We have just added an outdoor picnic table closer to the beach which will provide a closer view of any passing whales during months of July to October, and of canoeists paddling past during the annual Vaka Eiva event in November.
The pathway to the beach has been improved and there was a lovely sandy patch there last week, though that frequently changes with the surf continually altering the coastline.
Thanks again for your comments.
Kia Manuia, Dorothea

The house was very well appointed, with everything you could possibly want in the kitchen. Except of course a good sort to do the cooking! Nelson the dog was a great mate to have around, and a good garbage disposal as well. I hope his owners don't feed him too. The layout of the house is great and the high raked ceilings give an airy feeling and the fans do a great job cooling the place down. The house is not all that easy to find, especially if you don't print out Dorothea's directions and try to remember them. (Der!). A sign out the front would help though.

My only want would be for a larger BBQ, as it is probably only meant for two people. Other than that, it was a thoroughly enjoyable stay, and I would recommend to anyone. Dorothea does a great job and is so easy and friendly to deal with. As is Louis the property manager who helped us relocate to our other accommodation after our stay here, then again to the airport. What a great bloke he is.

Liked best: The house was well appointed

Thanks for your review Wayne. Glad you found the place without a print out of my directions! An increase in petty theft of tourist accommodations on the island is the main reason we don't have a sign out on the road- the neighbours sign is handy! I'll make a point of asking guests to print out the directions in future.
The baby Q weber BBQ is supposed to feed up to 6 people!! Will look to upgrade to a bigger one when we have to replace it next. Glad you enjoyed your stay. All the best. Dorothea
