I was greeted by Raro at the airport, and from there she gave ma a short tour of the island before taking me to my beautiful bungalow. There are 3 single units, all with kitchens and a large bed, TV, CD player and a stack of books and movies. The units are clean, airy, and fresh. You pretty much have the beach to yourself, and I'd recommend taking the kayaks out for a spin. I rented a scooter (via Raro...delivered right to the bungalow), and that was plenty to get around the island. Samades on the Beach is a quick drive, and a great place to have a fish sandwich and a few drinks while watching bikinis. I have absolutely no complaints!
If you're looking for someplace that's going to pamper you, this is not it. I'd say for the most part, the Cook Islands are not for you if that's your scene. The bungalows are for those looking for peace and quiet with a good bit of self-sufficiency and some of the most beautiful, inviting waters on the planet.
