What do you say. Once you go there you can't wait to return. The hosts the location and the island itself leave an impression that want you to never leave. This was our second trip and we can't wait to return.

Last May, we - 3 friends from Germany - stayed a whole week at the large Garden unit. All in all, it was an epic experience. Lisa and Paul are awesome hosts, the house had everything we needed (kitchen, bathroom; simple but sufficient), however, the main attraction were the tours we did with them. We did a classical lagoon tour,... More

My stay in Matriki Beach Hut was awesome. I've been to two differents rooms who were absolutly lovely and the view directly on the beach was just amazing. They ran the lagoon tour especially for me cause I've got a really short stay. I felt like really like a VIP in the paradise . Lisa came to pick me up... More

lisa was very welcoming by email & just as welcoming once we were at Matriki, I think it would help if the beach hut had an overhang so there was no problem with rain on pillow & a solid one piece door facing the beach would be preferable & maybe some storage but hard to achieve in such a small...

Kia Orana Gary & Gayle Thank you very much for your review of the Beach Hut. I particularly like your title "great place to unwind" - you're absolutely correct - unless of course an unexpected down pour catches us unaware and the Beach Hut blinds haven't been lowered! This is definitely on the 'to do' list for us to extend... More

It was so nice to be greeted at the airport by Lisa and then taken on a quick tour (and shop) of the town. The huts are set up well for self catering or the food next door at Tamanu is a good option. We enjoyed being next to the beach; watching hermit crabs or the cats chasing after fish,... More

Loved the island and staying at Matriki was an excellent low cost option. He location is very good for walking to their resorts for dinner or cold beer or whatever. Rooms are basic but that is reflected in the price

Aitutaki is a picture postcard island and Matriki is situated on one of the best beach areas, safe swimming and lovely snorkeling. The huts are small and basic, I would have preferred to have had just the fridge in the room with shared kitchen facilities elsewhere as it felt weird cooking in the bedroom. But It's very good value for... More

Couldn't recommend more. Lovely spot. Clean and comfortable without losing the rustic charms of a beach hut. Paul and Lisa were great hosts. Highly recommend their boat trips. Small numbers and didn't feel like a commercial tour at all. So glad I didn't go on one of the bigger tour boats. Nice personal experience. Felt like a nice day out... More

When you fly into Aitutaki, you will sense how lucky you are and how impossibly beautiful the location is. Yet when Lisa picks you up and introduces you to the island, you may start to feel the essence of the experience you will have. Lisa and Paul are truly living my dream and they are visibly excited about their surroundings... More
