    Whats not to love about a beautiful cottage by the sea on a remote atoll in the Pacific Ocean! We wanted for nothing staying here, from the courtesy airport transfers to the delightfully appointed home that greeted us. We loved every minute of our stay here and wouldn't suggest anything change until we get back again. Already saving!!

    The house location is on a busy street but yet convenient with stores close-by. Our first impression is that the house is very homely. We enjoyed the 1st season of Modern Family with the DVD player in the house. There is a beach access through the road next to the house. The beach is not as great as the other part of the island but worth checking out. We enjoyed the pool and it is a nice touch with the house. The papayas and passion fruits were great and we are luck to tried them.

    Great home, lovely large outdoor areas, great pool, clean, well stocked kitchen, insect screens were brilliant - no bugs inside at all. Puna was lovely and very helpful. Beds - EXCELLENT, big and comfy. Fruit trees in the garden a wonderful touch. Close to beach and town. Felt very much at home, would love to go back - thanks Gabrielle and Paul for sharing your home with us. Harry, Toni, Ethan and Holly. PS: Gabrielle - your paintings were lovely.

  • The house was as expected and would definitely stay again

    The house was as expected and would definitely stay again. The additional outdoor furniture is a bonus as well as the pool. Grass area suitable for the kids to play and the house is bascially "bug free". Thank you Gabrielle!
