Our holiday was so good we are already planning to return. It was great having a self servicing villa with the option of cooking at home or going to one of the many restaurants nearby. Lots of extras added to our enjoyment such as Toby the very friendly gardener "help yourself to the bananas hanging by the pool", kayaks, snorkelling gear (if you so desired), swimming pool (for those who don't like sea slugs), small library, shuttle to and from the airport with points of interest outlined on the way. There are lots of sea slugs in the water which look like black sausages and put me off swimming in the lagoon but you could still see the tropical fish etc behind Taakoka Island from the seat of a kayak. Everything you need is just down the road, cafes, vehicle hire, internet and grocery shop at the gate. We hired electric bicycles for $19 a day from Polynesian Bike Hire. They just about get you round the island if you don't want to pedal and you don't need to go to town to get the licence required for scooters and cars. You just take the battery out and recharge it at night. For our last day we hired a car for $52 and got a temporary licence for $2 from the hire company for one day. The weather was very unpredicatable and it rained every day but that didn't matter as it wasn't for long.
