The garden lodges are the right place to enjoy the tropical island 'away from it all'. The nicely landscaped property is 100m away from the next street. There are only four cottages on the property - surrounded by gerdens and bush. The owners did their best to help me with shopping groceries and renting a pushbike. This is the right... More

The lodge was a lower cost option for our accommodation and we didn't expect too much. However we picked this place in particular because it was advertised with a clean pool and nice garden setting. On arrival we found the pool was green and some locals told us it had been this way for some months, and the garden was... More

I stayed 3 nights in Ginas Garden Lodge in the middle of January 2010. This is my 2. stay, as I stayed here in February 2004. When I left then, I promised Tutai and Desmond Clarke that I will return, and I did! The lodge consist of 4 bungalows in a beautiful garden, with a swimming-pool. I had a rental... More

Gina's Garden Lodges are surrounded by a beautiful garden and are within walking distance of a lovely semi-outdoor restaurant and local church. It provides a very peaceful setting, however, transport is required to access the beaches and main shopping area as the lodges are located inland. The lodges are basic and get a little warm, but there is a swimming... More

We stayed at Gina’s Garden Lodges for 9 nights and absolutely recommend it. We were picked up at the airport by the owner Queen Tutai with wonderful leis. The queen is one of the three high chiefs on Aitutaki and one of the nicest persions we ever got to know. On the way to the Garden Lodge she showed us... More

My stay on Aitutaki was absolute paradise and Gina garden was for me, the garden of Eden on Earth. Des and Tutai, the owners are the most lovable, natural and helpfull persons I ever met. They did all efforts in the world to make me and my spouse to feel at home. I will never forget the time I spent... More

We were a small group of 6 which stayed 3 weeks in Ginas garden. Me, my spouse, a friend with girlfriend as well as 2 friends from England, one of them stayed for nearly 6 weeks. I have read through the reviews here and find that the negative feedback is well overexagerated and/or meer malicious. First off, Ginas Garden is... More

If you want to stay in a cheap accomodation, then stay here, the lodges are clean but very very basics, the beds are not good, there is no aircon, everything smells humid. a good backpacker option.

I spent approximately a month on Aitutaki. A total of only a couple of hours on Rarotonga. I just loved everything about Aitutaki. The owner met me at the airport with a warm welcome and several leis, possibly from the Lodges, that smelled exactly like paradise. We stopped by the grocery store to stock up on necessary items and on... More

I stayed at Gina´s for about a week with my friends. We were greeted on the airport with amazing leis and brought back to the lodges (picking up motorbikes on our way), where we got two huts instead of one, but for the same price! This great impression stayed for the rest of our time there, we picked coconuts which... More
