Guests can relax on the huge communal decking area overlooking the lagoon, and make use of the barbecue here. Small weddings can also be arranged at this beautiful and tranquil site.

The bus stops right outside the property for the 20-minute journey to Avarua Town, and it is only a short walk for car rental and nearby shops and restaurants.
