We contacted Sharon about staying at Te'ora. Since we needed two beds and Te'ora did not have a two-bed ocean view unit available, we rented the Ana Roa cabin at Ori Ana through Sharon. Ori Ana is owned by Sharon's manager, Oriana, and Oriana's husband, Nato.
When we arrived at IPC airport, we were greeted by Sharon's assistant, Daniela. She showed us the town as she transported us to Ori Ana. Once at the cabin, Daniela made sure we were settled, introduced us to Oriana, and we were able to relax to the view and sound of ocean waves. When we took our eyes off the waves, we observed the cabin had all of the necessities -- a gas stove with oven, refrigerator with freezer compartment, electric tea kettle, dishes, utensils/flatware, dish towels, round dining table, pots and pans, bath and beach towels, soap, toilet paper, etc. The cabin also has hot water along with chairs indoors and outdoors (on the cabin's deck which faces the ocean).
Oriana and her family were very accommodating and helped with everything we asked. Nato even gave us a CD of some great island music as a going away gift. We couldn't have asked for more gracious hosts. While Oriana's home is near the cabin (as another reviewer mentioned), the family was not intrusive in any way.
By the way, although I never met Sharon, she was very responsive via e-mail. She provided lots of great information about tours, what to expect and various tips prior to our arrival on Easter Island. We had a problem with our LAN flight being canceled due to high winds on Easter Island, and Sharon adjusted our tours and details accordingly without a problem.
