Thank you so much for such an amazing holiday. We had three nights at Matriki and we wish we could have stayed so much longer! Tracey and Trevor made us all so welcome, from buying marshmallows for the kids bonfire to happily including strangers to their pot luck dinner. We all loved staying in the tree hut, which was a cosy comfortable house for the 5 of us. Dad and the girls had a fantastic time paddling around in the vaka, and Tracey was so incredibly patient with our 3 busy social girls.
The ‘bring a plate, everyone welcome’ dinner was so much fun, and a great way to get to know other guests. You really can’t beat dining on a beach in one of the most beautiful settings in the world! And going next door for the dancing was awesome, the girls will forever remember that night.
We also had a great day out in the long-boat. The snorkelling spots were fantastic, especially the ‘giant swimming pool’ where the girls could play with the Giant Trevally and explore the coral safely. Feeding the butterfly fish was also a highlight, and the yummy lunch (Trevor makes the best Pita bread pockets). Again, thank you for being so patient with our girls, and for helping Zoe ‘dive deep’ to see the giant clams! The photos we have from that trip are among our favourites of our three months in the Cooks.
By the time we left Matriki we felt like we were family, and we were all sad to leave. What an amazing place to holiday, escape and live. We hope you continue to enjoy your time in Aitutaki Tracey and Trevor, and we really hope that you will be there when we come back next year.
Meitaki maata, thank you so very much.
Ella, Charlotte, Zoe, Mum (Erin) and Dad.
P.S. The reason we took so long to write this review is because we are still in denial that our time in the Cook Islands is over!
