An absolutely great place to stay, a great bargain for your buck and accessible to all the hot spots on the island. I originally had concerns about staying inland as I wanted beach front access but after staying at Te Akapuao had realised that I am glad that I chose the right location. Te Akapuao is quietly tucked away from the hustle and bustle of tourists, 2-5 mins from Muri and the beach is easily accessible anyway. In Muri we hired scooters to get about the Island which I highly recommend doing. We stayed at Te Akapuao Studio Home and Units for 9 nights, our group consisted of 13 adults and 3 children. The pool provided hours of entertainment for the kids and in each unit there is a selection of dvds to watch if you wanted to chill out after a long day. Mary and Charlie are excellent hosts, if we needed anything we found them very helpful. Our units were very clean and were serviced once during our stay. I found that the covered deck was the best feature of Te Akapuao, this is where our group shared meals and drinks in the evening. All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and highly recommend to those travelling in large groups. Can't wait to come back! Kia Manuia...
