My wife and I stayed here for a week and had an incredible time. Firstly, Easter Island warrants at least a week of your travel time. There is so much to do and see besides the famed moais. Our booking experience started with very efficient replies from Christophe. He picked us up at the airport as planned and gave us a quick orientation of Hanga Roa before brining us to his place just outside the core. We had a spacious and very clean cabin with a view to the ocean and the start of the Orongo hiking trail. The first day we walked into town and it was pleasant enough but we would not have wanted to do it every day as the weather can be variable. So, a rental car is recommended not only to avoid this walk but also to provide the freedom to get to all of the incredible sights on the island. Christophe rented us a jeep at a cheaper price than we would have gotten elsewhere. The breakfast provided is pretty standard but adequate and there is coffee and tea at your disposal. We found the guidebook "A companion guide to Easter Island" that Christophe generously provided to be indispensable. Follow the advice in this guide for a great overview of the sights on the island. A tip would be do not miss the short hike to Vai Atare. It was simply one of the most spectacular views we have ever seen. The hike starts from either the Rano Kau viewpoint (go left around the crater until you reach the sea) or leave your car parked half way up the road to the crater next to the "no cars permitted" sign and walk up to the crater rim (~ 45 min.). You will not regret it! Christophe Cabanas is conveniently located at the start of the road that leads to the crater. Christophe has a good handle on the operation of his cabanas. He is always around and very approachable should you require any help. The wifi is painfully slow so don't count on using it for important correspondence but with all the sights on the island to explore you won't feel a need to be constantly plugged in. This is a very comfortable and convenient base headed by a helpful and unobtrusive host.
