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.
Three of us stayed for 10 nights and enjoyed the house and location. The house is really lovely, clean, well maintained and quiet with a beautifully maintained garden. Papa Mauri was very welcoming and made sure we had enough breadfruit, coconut and passionfruit to keep us full for our stay. Easy walk to Wigmores and the beach. We'll be back.
