Nice LARGE , comfortable apartment...very reasonable price considering grossly overpriced Rapa Nui. Enjoyable 4 night visit!
Very close to downtown shopping/markets. Great kitchen, fully equipped..helps save a LOT of money. Generally very quiet environs/garden/family/traffic. The other apartment was vacant the first three days..then, a VERY NOISY local guy moved in...and we could barely hear ourselves think! But overall, very quiet..few roosters close by! You can usually rent the owner's jeep (might want to reserve it in advance) for driving around the island..we used it for 2 1/2 days..doing so, you save a LOT of money and you can see just about everything you want to, plus a couple of visits to the sandy beach for swimming/snorkeling under the Maoi statues..very popular local place on the northern side of the island. Swimming/parking FREE..so you can do the best of Rapa Nui without going broke at the same time! Laundry service, however, is grossly overpriced, rather slow, and NOT convenient..if you had to go through that again, we might just do our own laundry in town, but who wants to do that when on vacation! Owners speak great English and are very helpful when around, but sometimes difficult to track down. One works for LAN Airlines. The other brother forgot about our "included" trip back to the airport, even though he had been reminded a few hours before. A little bit upsetting, esp. to my wife! Not 100% professional, but still, friendly, nice apartment/owners. CASH only! Certainly would stay there again, but can't imagine going back to Rapa Nui anytime soon. Everyone should go at least once..and ONLY once. But if you do, stay here! Definitely Recommended for anyone who wants very nice accommodations at a reasonable price!
