Child Friendly (2 y/o) accommodation?

After our honeymoon stay at Etu Moana in 2010, we're planning a return visit (a two week stay) to our favorite place in the world next year. This time round we'll have our baby boy, who'll be nearly 2 when we travel.

Can anyone recommend some mid-priced accommodation (up to around 250 or so NZ$ per night) that would be suitable in terms of facilities, for such a young guest? Ideally we'd like to stay somewhere that has a separate bedroom for the young'un, and ideally be situated along the Amuri or Ootu coastlines for beach/restaurant access.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

Kia Orana, It might be difficult to find a 2 bedroom accommodation within your budget. For kid friendly try Paparei in Amuri. Wonderful hosts right on the beach and self contained.

For a two bedroom that is a little above your budget take a look at Ootu Villa next to Samade. They have two bedrooms. This is walking distance to several restaurants and right on the beach. You may also want to look at Inano which is close by. This is only one bedroom but self contained.

Are Tai Villas are located next to Puffy's restaurant, in the same locality as Etu Moana. These are 2 br villas situated on the beachfront, all well equiped & presented - including kayaks. While a little over your price-range,they advertise a stay 7, pay for 6 discount for weekly stays.

Also in the Ootu area, the Ootu Beach House (close to Ootu Villa) is a 2 br bungalow. Situated on the inland side of the no-exit road to the sailing club and cruise departure point, it has good views of the lagoon. Like the Villa, the Beach House is very convenient to the licenced cafes in the Ootu area.

Thank you for the suggestions. We remember walking past villas on the way back from Puffy's, now we know what they are called. The price is also very reasonnable.

Really looking forward to returning to Aitutaki.

Here's the link to reviews on Are Tai Villas. Lovely beachfront location, and yet handy enough to Amuri for supplies etc -

Wonderful to hear of your return visit, and with your little one this time round!
