We were a group of eleven comprising of adults and teenagers. The four bedroom house and the two studio villas were perfect. The buildings are wrapped around a fantastic pool and extensive decks and entertainment space. Situated off the main road so quiet and peaceful and surrounded by lush tropical gardens and local plantations. A five minute walk to the family beach which is right next to the best snorkling reef on the island. Charlie and Mary were exceptional hosts providing us with fresh fruit, tasty fish, home baking and local knowledge. Te Akapuao is only a year old so all the facilities are in great condition and everything was clean and sparkling. Can't wait to return and when I do it will be to Te Akapuao.
