Bach or holiday home, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 12)
Turou Retreat is a home that was our parents dream and wish, to leave for the family as part of our mothers legacy and heritage as a Cook Islander. The family all live in NZ, with our mother living with my husband and I for many years. I take her at least 3 times a year to visit family in Raro and enjoy the changes with the home. I manage the house for the family and do my best to make your stay like 'a home away from home'.... comfortable and relaxing.
Linda_Nightingale purchased this House in 2014
Why Linda_Nightingale chose Akapuao Tapere
Turou Retreat is situated off the main road where is much quieter from the roar of the sea, traffic and barking dogs. In Nov 2019 we installed air conditioning units in the bedrooms for your comfort at night. The house is surrounded by very friendly locals and there is that feeling of being part of the Island life.... chickens , rooster, cats, banana trees, Paw paw trees, guava and passionfruit and did I mention 'rooster' ( you'll know what I mean lol.)

Turou retreat stay
Overall we loved Turou Retreat . We got off to a rocky start as Linda had us arriving a day later but thanks to our resourceful taxi driver ,he helped us get in at 11 pm by finding the key, things improved. We never had a text that is usually sent prior to your arrival by Book a Bach, butLinda contacted us and apologised as she was away for a couple of days when we arrived.
Turou was very well stocked with everything you could think of and is in beautifully designed gardens which are private and very sheltered.
Easily accommodated the 7 of us and had an amazing deck which we spent most of our time on.
A local lady was available if you needed help,but it was 3 days after we arrived before she contacted us.
We would definitely stay at Turou Retreat again.
Loved the 2 book history of how Turou Retreat came about.What an amazing lady the owner was and was still gardening there at 89👍
Fantastic holiday location for a large group, had everything we needed. Linda was a pleasure to deal with and the neighbours at the property were lovely. Thanks for a great stay.
So pleased you enjoyed staying at Turou Retreat - a home away from home is what we truly want everyone to feel. Look forward to welcoming you all back to soon.
