“Amazing location - great cabin !”

We put a lot of time into researching our accommodation at Aitutaki and were rewarded with a fantastic experience. Having rented a scooter to explore the island whilst there, I can confirm that we feel this is the best location available for a holiday on Aitutaki.
It is perfect for young kids, with a safe, shallow, and crystal clear swimming channel just metres from the cabin, allowing us to sit on the deck if we chose and still supervise the kids. We travelled with a 9, 7, and 5 year old who just loved the area. Just beyond the channel is a huge permanent sandbar which is exposed at low tide to explore.
Although we brought in most of our own food to keep costs down, we made use of the nearby Samade bar and restaurant for afternoon drinks, and spent quite a few afternoons/ evenings at Aitutaki Lagoon Resort and Spa, just a 10 min walk away, open to non-staying guests by request.
Car and scooter hire is available within walking distance. Two of the major lagoon cruise operators leave from the beach within sight of the cabin. We also took a spin on Captain Ted's brand new Catermaran, again leaving from the beach out the front.
Rima, our host, acted as child minder for an adult evening at very reasonable rates. The kids loved the laid back and friendly care she provided, including a dusk crab hunt !

The cabin itself had everything we needed. Very modern and clean, it was roomy and comfortable. The large deck out front was perfect for relaxing and also drying out all our wet gear each day. About the only drawback was the sandflies and mozzies late arvo and early morning....take a large repellant spray.

A very memorable holiday.....will be back !!

“Immaculate accommodation with a fabulous outlook to the beautiful lagoon”
Reviewed July 19, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

This was our second visit to beautiful, warm and friendly Aitutaki. The turquoise lagoon, white sand, swaying coconut palms and welcoming locals adds up to the slice of heaven we learned to expect on our first visit.

This visit we spent the very relaxing 2 weeks based in the immaculate and well-appointed Ootu Beach Villa. Every day we lazed and read on the sun lounges on the villa's deck, watched the comings and goings of tour boats, snorkeling charters, kite surfers and fisherman casting flies on the lagoon flats or we crossed the quiet beach road for a swim and snorkel. Right in front of the villa we saw trevally and other lagoon fish. My partner fly-fished and caught bone fish and trevally on the lagoon flats in front of the villa as well hiring a bone fish guide for a day. He had brought his own rod from home and bought a local fishing permit).

We also hired a car from Popoara Rentals (walking distance from the villa) for a few days to buy in supplies as most of the shops are about 9km away near the wharf at Aritanga.

Our host Richard invited us to BBQs of seafood and local delicacies with his family and friends. We also ate at the Samade (50 meters down the road), at Puffy's, at Koru Cafe and at the wonderful Tupuna's (in the hire car).

When we didn't eat out we prepared our own meals in the villa's kitchen with fabulous freshly-caught fish (ask the locals where to get it) and locally-grown fruit and veggies available from Aitutaki market and Tauono's.

We also took a charter beyond the reef to line-fish for tuna in the inky-blue Pacific ocean and saw turtles, flying fish, frigate birds and ocean-going yachts sailing away, as well as the beautiful views back at the beautiful island of Aitutaki. I also went on an interesting cultural tour with Punarei Cultural Tour to learn about local traditions.

A little tip: the best sand-fly repellant was our neighbour Tom's homemade spray bottle of baby oil laced with Dettol!
