A charming and private place to stay while touring Easter Island. Christophe met us with a lei greeting then drove us around town to point out the main sites. The Cabanas is an easy mile walk from center of town-take the scenic along the ocean route and meet a giant turtle. Our room faced the ocean which was lovely to sit out in the morning while eating breakfast and watch the sunset and night sky. Across the road is the start of the trail to Orongo which is a beautiful hike with panoramic views of the town and island as you ascend. And convenient to hike back down to our room. Also, a wonderful hidden cave is close-by. We were able to get a ride from Christophe to town or take an inexpensive taxi ride back to the Cabanas. Nearby is a mini-market to buy snacks and drinks. We rented a car from Christophe for one day to drive around the island and visit other Moai sites not covered on the great archaeological tour that we took. Breakfast is simple-juice, ham and cheese slices, bread, leftovers kept in refrig for lunch or snack later. Water kettle provided to boil water to make own tea or coffee. Christophe is most friendly and accommodating- a guidebook written by a local is provided to help plan your visits. The room was clean and spacious with a double bed and two bed bunk-we were 2 people; bathroom a bit small but good shower pressure and towels provided. The TV could not get a signal but we watched a provided DVD about Rapa Nui. We enjoyed the privacy of this place.
