Arriving from Rarotonga to this amazing island felt like a dream, I was greetinga t he airport by Nga who kindly gave me information on the trip in the van to the Guesthouse. What i loved is that everyone knew who everyone is and every one shouts out hello....
On arrival I realised from what Nga said, that this was to be treated as a home.... there was a full house of people from all over the world.. all there for differnet reasons... some stayed for a few day some planned to but could not bear to leave!
The Rooms themselves were suitable and I had lost my snobbiness by that time about Air-Con... it hardly exists in this type of accomodation. One thing to remember is that this place is a number 1 honeymoon destination and understandably so... do not be deterred though as the solo traveller can have just as much enjoyment. The Place is so peaceful and chilled out. I was unable to find a push bike to rent as wanted to cycle but Maraiti klidly leant me his scooter to explore the island... which took a good day of leisurely driving around.. stopping for lunch or a swim!
One thing not to miss is a Lagoon Cruise, Nga can recommend the best trips without getting ripped off! She wants her guests to enjoy the island just as much as the honeymooners! And was not dissapointed with TEKING's ... he's a great guy and fully informative.. the Lagoon is 12 by 15k so on that scale he knows the best places to take you..... without doubt one ofthe most amazing experiences .. to date.. oh and don't forget your passport! 1 Foot Island stamp!
While the island is amazing for the solo traveller... this is a wonderful place to stay, I felt safe and comfortable. I get bored quite quickly so 3 days was long enough there for me.. but if you like doing nothign for a week and can get to the middle of nowhere.... GO Go Go!! Do Not Forget your Mosquito spray though!!! Pesky things!
A big thank you to Nga and Maraiti who made my trip also....x
