This was our second stay at Popoara , we stayed last year for few weeks and this year as well for 2 weeks and we enjoyed our stay as usual. The villas are clean, tidy, well equipped, good value for money and on a good location, on the breeze side of the island. Staff are very friendly and helpful and... More

6 wonderful nights on restfull Aitutaki. Enjoyed the food and drink at the boat shed next door and appreciated the cooking facility when we needed a light dinner and being able to cook the Mahi Mahi we caught. If you stay here just don't try and visit the Island resort across the estuary. We popped over for a look and... More

Great spot, clean, affordable, easy access to the lagoon. Next to good restaurant with basic good food and cool reasonably priced drinks at the bar. Friendly staff, most hospitable, very safe. I would return in a heartbeat.

We live in Rarotonga but my husband had work to do at he Aituaki Airport for 3 days so we ideally stayed at Popoara villa which is located at the end of the runway. My widowed mother followed us and had the villa right next door to us. It was very practical for us as we had villa 1 &... More

We were picked up from the airport (complimentary) and shown to our villa. Aitutaki is pretty remote and and very quiet, and the villas are at the most remote end of the island, a good 7 km from the post office – effectively the villas are at the far end of the runway. Noise from the runway isn't a problem... More

8 days spent at Popoara Ocean Breeze Villas in Aitutaki was a very pleasant experience. The accommodation was clean, comfortable and provided all the amenities a family would need. Hosts Allen and Maria Mills who also run the adjacent Boatshed Bar and Restaurant, were very welcoming and made me feel right at home. A great place to stay, very reasonably... More

A short 40min flight from Raratonga, met at the airport and five mins to the 'Boat Shed" The staff would arrange everything for you, from day trips to local visits. Rental cars and bikes (a must for the 14km round trip of the Island) available on site. excellent resturant with big range of food on the menu. Well stocked bar.... More

Although units are more garden view does not detract from the property at all with the close proximity of everything at that end of the island. Onsite rentals and a great restaurant with a deck over looking the reef passage adds to its advantages. After visting aitutaki a few years ago this end of the island has developed with 4... More

place was clean and very functional, but you go to the island for ocean and this place has too little of it for the price. Should be NZ$70 at most vs. 145. Boat Shed also terribly overpriced, small portion average food.
