We booked here quite a few months in advance to get the dates we wanted. Peter responded quickly with all the information we needed to make the booking. He welcomed us at the airport with a lei and drove us to the bungalow showing us where stores, car rentals. and restaurants were located in Hanga Roa. The bungalow is made to Swiss specifications, so is superior in quality to most accommodations on the island. Ours came with a comfy bed, a kitchenette and a nice bathroom and tub. Peter will hang fresh baked goods on your doorknob at about 8am. He is a fountain of information about the island and can make any car rental or tour arrangements you might need. He is a guide himself although I had already organized a private tour with Green Island Tours (reviewed elsewhere). We felt like family staying here. To come and go conveniently a rental car (or other means of transportation) will give you considerable freedom, but he's willing to help you out as needed. Peter booked for us a local ethnic evening out with dinner and show (reviewed elsewhere). Ideally one would spend 3 or 4 nights here to take full advantage of what the island has to offer and the relaxing beautiful location overlooking the sea. This is my second visit to Easter Island and I would not stay anywhere else.
