Te'ora
Reviewed May 5, 2012

My partner and I stayed here for 5 nights. Sharon the owner is charming and we will never forget her. She was so helpful when my luggage was lost and arrived a day late and she drove me back to the airport to collect it. Her local knowledge is great and she is very enthusiastic and eager to help her guests.

Sharon organised the tours and the car hire and took some of the stress and work out of it for us. Tours were excellent with Green Island Tours, ran by a Kiwi called Marc, very well informed and interesting. You really need a minimum of 5 days to see everything at a comfortable pace. We found taking the tours first, then hiring a car for a couple of days to do our own exploring the best approach.

The cabins are clean, cute and cosy. Tip: Book the upstairs one with the view of the Ocean. We really enjoyed our stay on Easter Island, a truly unique experience and made all the better thanks to Te'ora and Sharon. Big hugs to you Sharon.

We stayed for a week in "Iti," the smallest of T'ora's units. Cosy, but not totally cramped. (I do seem to travel with more than I ever need). We were quite comfortable. Sharon, the owner was onsite and very comfortable to be with. We shared some outdoor cooking and lounging space and conversation. Given the cost of everything on the island, the opportunity to cook for ourselves was a blessing. Sharon is very knowledgable about the island, cultural issues and was very helpful with suggestions of what to see and quickly connected us with tour and car rental folks. Her staff seem just as dedicated to helping Te'ora's guests as well.

Room Tip: Each room has its plusses and minuses. Just ask Sharon and you should end up with the one just right...

We stayed for three nights (rather than our intended six, due to flight changes) in Ana Ori (I think that was the name), not actually part of Te'ora but run by the family of Sharon's (Te'ora's owner) assistant... The cabin consisted of one large room with a kitchenette, double bed, single bed and pullout bed, plus a large shower-room. Everything was spotless, and although there was nowhere to sit inside, there was a table and chairs on the small patio outside.

The cabin is surrounded by lush tropical gardens, but it is right next to the owner's house and another cabin they let out, so it did not feel particularly private. But we were out and about most of the time, so this was not an issue. We didn't quite have a sea view, but we were only a few minutes walk from both the sea and town.

Sharon had sorted out car hire for us, which helped us see lots of the island very quickly. Her assistant, Lluvia, collected us from the airport, and also took us back when it was time to leave. Our flight out was late evening, but we were able to store our bags at Ana Ori for the day while we were out and about.

Not a luxurious stay, but a very comfortable one, and very reasonably priced (CLP45,000 or about USD$90 per night) in a place not known for budget accommodation. Sharon was very quick to reply to our emails and helpful with our queries. Ideally we would want to stay at Te'ora if we ever went back to the island, but Ana Ori is a very acceptable alternative.

We stayed 4 nights in the small cabin and enjoyed it a lot. The room is tiny but who spends time indoors? But for the ultimate experience book the room upstairs with more privacy and ocean view. An added bonus was all the activities that went along with the Tapati Festival. What an unexpected treat to be there for the final competitions.

Sharon responded to my emails quickly. Because of full booking, she introduced us to another cabin manageed by her assistant. The cabin is well-furnished and equipped and large. Close to the town centre, about 10-15 min walk.
Sharon helped reserve a regular tour of 2 days. However, the tour agent has cut one of the important site when we paid. Sharon's assistant Livian negotiated for us but failed. Instead she kindly drove us to the site in her own time. She's so cheerful!
Strongly recommended this little but lovely hostel to you!

Kira and Sharon were the perfect couple for a perfect stay in this strange and beautiful part of the world.
During a three month tour around the whole world, my son and I experienced Rapa Nui and its Tapati Festival.

For a special experience, definitely consider staying with Oriana and Nato and their famiily at AnaRoa. They were most welcoming in every way. Lluvia will make sure all your arrangements are in order. Michigan, the dog, and two cats in residence, will make you feel right at home! And a private tour with James Grant Peterkin will bring the island alive!
