Lovely private house. Plenty of room & great deck. Papa Mauri lives behind, and porvides lots of fresh fruit & veg from his property. Easy walk to Wigmores and beaches.

We had a wonderful 10 days at Papa Mauri's house. The surroundings are beautiful and very quiet and peaceful. The house is very well equipped and comfortable and has everything you need. Papa Mauri kept us well supplied with bananas, paw paw, passion fruit and coconut. Added to that he also found snorkels and masks for us to use at the lagoon. Thank you Papa Mauri for being such a welcoming host and a true gentleman. The gorgeous white sand beach is a 5 minute walk from the house. . All in all a fabulous holiday.

We stayed at Papa Mauris place in 2015. It was my third time in the Cook Islands and my Mothers first time. Mum absolutely loved it. We really liked that there were lots of fruit trees and Mum enjoyed cooking the breadfruit and feeding the fresh passionfruit to my daughter. If you like to comfort of being in home away from home then this is it.
