If you are after quiet and cheap accommodation during your time in Tarawa, then my house is the perfect place for you. My property is a small raised house on its own, situated in a quiet and peaceful place away from the main road and close to the ocean. My house used to be rented by expatriates who come to work in Kiribati, but since 2017 we have opened it up to shorter-term visitors via TripAdvisor and other websites. Since then we have had guests from the UK, NZ and Australia staying at the house. The latest guest was a researcher from Australia who stayed with us in the first two weeks of July, 2017. We have realised that most of our guests were business travellers coming for work-related activities who have actually been staying at hotels/motels before opting to move into the house for a quieter, cheaper and more home-like stay in Tarawa. The house has a double bed which suits a single guest or a couple. For those who wish to have breaks from restaurant food and cook for themselves, the house has a small kitchen with a new stove and cooking/eating utensils. A new fridge is also available for storing your food and drink supplies. For those of you who wish to do your own laundry, the house has an outdoor laundry with a new washing machine. We can also organise someone to provide onsite laundry services for you but at a small additional cost. The house has screened windows and doors to keep mosquitoes and flies out and it also has air conditioning. You won't miss your favourite news and sports programmes with a 25-channel Sky Pacific TV available at the house. The property is fully fenced and secure and the neighbours are expatriates working in Kiribati who rent 3 other next door houses. Guests will have full access to the whole house and compound to themselves. During your stay, you will be provided fresh towels and linen. Coffee, tea, milk, sugar and wheetbix are provided on arrival. An iron and ironing board is also available at the house. A local SIM is cheap and is easy to get from ATHKL, the main Internet Service Provider on the island. Once your phone is configured for mobile Internet, you can access internet from the house. The main ATHKL outlet is in Bairiki, 10 minutes drive (5.3 km) from the property.
