Reviewed 7 August 2009

Due to double booking of previous accommodation we were transferred to the Aito Apartments. This will now be our first choice when we return. Perfectly located,the apartments have every thing you could possible need for a great holiday. In all our travelling we have never experienced hospitality like we received from Mere and Jean. Fridge stocked with everything we needed for a great breakfast, fresh fruit bought to our room each morning and an invitation to dine with them in their upstairs apartment was an experience we will treasure forever. Thank you so much Mere & Jean.

We were moved here after being double booked at nearby (over-rated) Ambala Gardens and it was a transformation from a rather tired location to a sumptious apartment with spacious rooms. We had arrived in a 5 star substitute! Jean Marc and his charming wife pulled out all the stops to make us feel comfortable, and we were delighted with their kind hospitality in tricky circumstances. They immediately hosted us and other strangers to a marvellous Polynesian meal (at no cost) on the first night, upstairs in their own living area. Unforgetable! Furthermore, they made sure that the fridge was always topped up with something to eat for breakfast, and we were invited for drinks on departure too. It was fascinating hearing about their former life in Tahiti, and we could have stayed longer, had we known about this place beforehand.

The rooms were spotless; a huge kitchen/living area (private, unlike Ambala), and good sized bedroom to the rear, adjoining which was a shower room and toilet and rear door leading to a patio and lawn area with views of the central mountain range. Outside the front door was a lovely balcony and the front drive, leading straight onto the main road, with ample parking space for car. Access to the beach was simply across the road, and the nearby shops at Muri were an easy walk.

The apartments do not have a pool. but this seems pointless, in view of the proximity of the beach. The only drawback we could think of were the wild chickens, who tended to start the day earlier than us!

What more could you ask for. A superb spacious apartment, beautifully kept, fitted out with everything you need (fridge freezer, full cooker, microwave, CD player, TV, DVD player, washing machine all in new condition) easy access to beach and Muri Lagoon. Handy for shops, restaurants etc. and then to top it all, the friendliest caring hosts in Mere and Jean Marc. We loved the security and help we had from the fact that the hosts are accessable upstairs. Believe me, this is one big advantage over the absent owner scenario at other apartments. We definitely intend to return to this apartment. It is the best by far of accommodation we have experienced in our visits to Rarotonga. The only reservation I have about providing this feedback is I don’t want it to become so popular that I can’t get a reservation here in the future! This was superb value for money! Unreservedly recommended.

I recommend this place unreservedly- it is absolutely gorgeous!. From the photos that I saw on the Holiday Homes website (check out Aito Apartments) I didn't expect much, however when I arrived I realised the photos did not do the place justice at all.

This apartment has just been recently built, as a result the amenties are very modern and it is spacious throughtout. We had been staying at another place previously, and it was definitely a bonus to be able to come to this place where you could cook your own food with a full kitchen to make use of. The other bonus was the fact that the bathroom was beautiful and we did not have to worry about the the lack of hot water for warm showers or bugs crawling around. The bathroom is clean, modern, and has modern shower head with multiple settings on it. There were just two of us here, but this place could easily sleep a family of four. This place is also close to shops, ATM's, cafe's...about a 10 minute walk.

We will definitely be coming back here to stay at some point and will recommend this place to all our friends.

A final thing to mention, the hosts here are very friendly and gracious.
