The perfect location with the beach and crystal clear lagoon waters literally 'right on your doorstep' make this ideal place for a really relaxing holiday. The water is warm and with snokelling equipment and kayaks available there is plenty of opportunity to enjoy the lagoon. This was our 2nd (and longer) visit and we were certainly not disappointed. Rongo and her team look after the property well and provide a genuinely warm welcome to guests whilst also dealing efficiently with any minor problems. The villa is well equipped so that cooking and eating a meal 'at home' is easy and you couldn't ask for better sea views or starry skies as your backdrop! However if you want to eat out there are two restaurants just along the beach too which served great food. Having a car not only means that you obtain a Raratonga driving licence (with photo ID) as a unique souvenir but means you can also explore the island and visit other shops and restaurants. With just three villas this setting is great for those who want a quiet holiday (just as long as the neighbours don't decide to have a noisy party that goes on too long - this happened to us but other locals and Rongo soon made it clear that this was unacceptable and peace was restored). There is no doubt that we will return to this bit of paradise as soon as we can!
