Pros. Couldn't have ask for a better beachfront hut if we tried. Great beach and snorkeling right outside the front door... and like others have said, we too think it was the best beach on Aitutaki! Great access to local shops and stores for all that you need and a basic, but functional, little kitchenette perfect for breakfast and lunch to keep the budget on track. Bicycles for Island exploring and Paul (Lisa was out of "town" during our stay) was always available to answer questions or book activities as needed. All the amenities you could ask for in a true AFFORDABLE little beach hut! Thanks for a great stay Paul - we'll DEFINITELY be back!
