The hospitality and friendliness provided by Babe and his team at Babe's Place were outstanding in all respects. The 2 rooms in the main house are spacious and airy. Each room in the main house has a King-size and single bed, along with a dresser and wardrobe. Babe's also has separate units set apart from the main homestead.
We appreciated all little touches that Babe and his team (Ura and Moetau) provided to make us feel welcome and relaxed. All our meals were delicious, and the menu changed each day using as much fresh produce that could be sourced on Mangaia. Couldn't have chosen a better place to stay over our week's visit. What also made our stay rather special was meeting fellow house-guests and day-visitors each day at Babe's, and bonding over dinner.
Babe's Place is very quiet, as is all of Mangaia island. Loved the sense of history, the ancient geology, all the surrounding bush, and also the pristine clear rock-pools a short walk from Babe's We remain privileged to visit such a welcoming, clean, hospitable and stunningly attractive island.
Thank-you Babe, you are a gem for making all the ground arrangements for our visit to Mangaia so marvellous.More
