Enjoy the beauty of our tropical Island in the shades of the mountains + only minutes away from the beach. Explore the island by foot, bike or car, hike the mountains, wander in the valleys, swim and snorkel, scuba dive or paddle board in the turquoise waters of the lagoon or simply do nothing and enjoy Little Paradise. A European style breakfast with added tropical delights and fresh eggs from our chicken is included to make you fit for your exciting day, (except Sat) Ask for Airport transfer.

The space
The little house is one of three absolutely family friendly cottages on our large property, away from the road, with the magnificent mountains in the back. You can hike the mountains, cycle along the back road, enjoy the morning sun coming up over the palm trees and just relax and recharge your batteries. You and your kids will be entertained by the goats, cats and the colorful roosters and hens with their baby chicks. You are welcome to explore the property and enjoy some tropical fruits straight from the tree. The property is very safe & pretty quiet apart from the animal noise. No need for an alarm clock, that job is given to the roosters.
Bedrooms: 1 double bedroom, 1 bedroom with 2 single beds (separate entry but also connected to main bedroom), 1 fold out sofa in living area.
If you travel as a group please have a look at our other 2 cottages and ask for your special group discount.

Guest access
The whole property and its surroundings are open to be explored. Visit Lulu, the piggy, pick yourself some pawpaws or feed the goats with banana. Joey will get you some drinking coconut from one of our many palm trees and show you how to open it yourself. It's always funny to watch the roosters trying to impress the hens, and the cats trying to get you attention (and a cuddle if possible). There is a BBQ available for you, and enough room if you wish to invite some friends to enjoy fresh ocean fish straight from the grill. By the way: we are happy to help you organizing a fishing trip if you like, a lagoon cruise, a mountain bike tour or any other activity that you would like to try.

Other things to note
We are on the back road in the village of Matavera, just 400m from the ocean. You will hear the ocean waves when you go to sleep at night. The property is surrounded by farmland, so there could be animal noise from time to time; a goat, a dog and of course the roosters when they welcome the rising sun. Farmers are "early risers", so sometimes you might hear a tractor in the morning.
Please consider that we are in the tropics, with 1 Mio insects. 999,990 of them are ants. We try to keep them away from your house, using as little chemicals as possible (we're organic after all), but sometimes a little critter wins and finds it's way inside. Please let us know when this happens and we'll help you to get rid of them quickly.

Location

Matavera District, Cook Islands

The property is very safe and is located in a very safe area on the east side of the island. You can see beautiful sunrises right from your door step. Since nothing is really far on the island you can reach the next beautiful snorkeling spot or the Night market in Muri, or the next restaurant in just a few minutes.

Joe is a simple person, very happy and always in for fun and some singing. He was born and bred in Rarotonga, loves his island and also loves to show visitors the beauty of Rarotonga. I am his wife, Odette. I like cooking and sharing receipts and would like to welcome people from all over the world on our little island.

During your stay
We live on the property, so we are always here to help.
Please join us for breakfast at our veranda, ask for advise if you need any or just come over for a little chat.
Of course we respect your privacy at any time, so you could also enjoy your breakfast in the privacy of your own little house or your veranda, read a book or have a relaxing afternoon nap in the shade of the pergola.

Sometimes our 89 year old Mama will entertain with some tales from the good old times. She'll even teach you some Cook Island Maori words if you like or take you to church on Sunday.
