“Wonderful Guesthouse, Wonderful host”
Reviewed 9 October 2010

Cecilia's guesthouse was an excellent place to stay in Easter Island. She was a great host, warm and kind, made us feel at home, and was very helpful in settingup activities on the island. Also, everyone on the island (all 3,500 people) seemed to know her!

We stayed in the room with a double bed which was perfectly fine. There is a school across the street, and while the room is perfectly quiet, in the mornings when we took our breakfast (including her superb homemade jams & cakes) we could her what appeared to be gym classes.

The location was great. A quick 5 minute walk into the main street in town and 10 minutes down to the beach. Would definetely stay with her again.

The house is beautiful and off the main streets so it's fairly quite but only 5 minutes from the centre of town. The rooms are in a separate bungalow next to Cecilia's (the owner) house with a fridge, tea and coffee and a porch for dinning at. You get your own key to the bungalow and your room so you have total freedom.

Each room has it's own bathroom and the beds are very comfortable and clean. Cecilia provides you with a delicious breakfast each morning the highlight of which are the smoothies which are made fresh with fruit from her garden, her home made jam (which you can buy) and home made cake. When I read reviews raving about her breakfast I just had to try it and I was not disappointed.

Cecilia is a lovely host who picks you up and drops you off at the airport, gives a little orientation around the town pointing out the good places to eat, the bank and post office and see a beautiful sunset. She also recommended a guide, Stephen, for tours who was excellent and knowledgeable. Cecilia speaks spanish and a little English but even with my limited Spanish I got by and she was wonderfully helpful.

I would most certainly stay here again, it was lovely and relaxing.

Great place to stay. We spent 10 days at Taniera, and it was just what we needed with our 2 young children: a garden to play, simple and clean bedrooms, ensuite bathroom and closet, close to all amenities (10 minutes on foot) and close to the Church -Sunday service is a real must!-
Breakfast is served on the varanda, there is a fridge and a kettle, very practical to feed 2 hungry children at any time of the day.
But the best of it all is Cecilia: she is more than honest, very calm and helpful, she would do anything to make you feel comfortable and happy.
Alltogether, this is where I will go back next time I visit the island.
The only drawback (and that applies to the whole island!) are the dogs: they are very noisy, so take some earplugs with you!
Iorana (good bye and good luck)

  • Liked — the garden and the owner Cecilia

Reviewed 10 September 2007

We just came back from a truly unique and beautiful trip to Easter Island.
We stayed at the wonderful Taniera Guest House for 7 nights.
It´s a simple place, but very comfortable, and the best part is that the owner, Cecilia Gundman, makes you feel like a true guest, then a friend.
Every morning she appears through her tropical garden full of Pointsettias, Guayabas, Avocado, Papayas, and dozens of flowering trees and shrubs, with her special marmalades she prepares from her own fruit trees.
Along with Guayaba juice with a flower. Perfect start to every day.

The price is definitely convenient, and her style is relaxed but everything in place.
We paid approximately 75 dollars a night for a double, in low season.
Ah, also very convenient as she is located right off the noise (however slight) of the main street, but close enough that walking is a pleasure.

  • Liked — Guayaba juice every morning at breakfast, and the smell of the garden.
  • Disliked — not much really
