We stayed at Lolani’s Retreat for a week and just loved our time there. The house is well set up and a perfect base for exploring Niue. Being able to hire a car from John and Kareen made getting around Niue a breeze. Lolani’s Retreat is really close to many of the snorkelling spots with a primo location for viewing the whales just a 10 minute walk up the road. John gave us a tour of the cave and introduced us to the uga! Kareen and John were great, knowledgeable hosts and made us feel very welcome. We wish we'd booked to stay for two weeks instead of one. We’d love to come back!

A great location in Makefu, not far from town and some great caves and diving spots. Kareen and John made us very welcome, we even had some wonderful fresh fruit in the fridge waiting for us. The place was just perfect, comfy bed, good kitchen, lounge and decks. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts. We were pleasantly surprised that when sitting out on the side deck we could hear the whales and watched them as they put on a little show for us. A short walk along the road is a place with extensive views and a couple of tables where you can do some more whale watching.
We absolutely loved our week at Lolani's! Thank you so much John and Kareen, your hospitality really made our stay in Niue so much more than we could have asked for! The house had everything we needed and more - we loved being able to relax out on the deck and enjoyed our afternoon catch ups with John. You really did go above and beyond for us, and gave us a true feel for Niuean life. Thanks again for the private tour of your cave, the Uga crab trapping lesson and delicious traditional feast! We can highly recommend staying at Lolani's, it is the perfect location, not far from town and close to all the key spots to check out- this meant we could go back a number of times during our stay! The rental car made getting around super easy and convenient. A wonderful stay in a beautiful unique island, we hope to be back -just make sure you sort out the sun for us next time! ;) haha Josie, Jeremy, Michelle and JD
