“This is the place to stay for a total getaway holiday”
Reviewed 24 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Our family very much enjoyed our time at Nora's Beach House on Aitutaki. It was a few metres from the beautiful lagoon beach and had all the facilities that we needed for nearly a week's stay. All the rooms were spacious and clean, and we settled in straightaway. Around the corner are a cafe and a lovely pub (The Boat Shed), as a couple of hundred metres' walk will get you to the lagoon cruise boat which had a fantastic BBQ lunch and lots of snorkelling opportunities. Lots of hot and sunny weather; the windy and wet weather towards the end (perhaps a spinoff from Cyclone Victor) meant that we couldn't get tv reception - but we didn't miss that given all the other things to see and do, including hiring a kayak to explore the shoreline.

“Affordable Accomodation, Great Location”
Reviewed 9 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We visited Aitutaki for our honeymoon. This house was located on the lagoon near the airport. Despite the proximity to the airport, there is no really much noise as there are not too many flights and they are small planes. The house itself is a little older inside than the other houses, but the benefit of this house is the large front porch which is completely covered, there is a table and two reclining chairs on the porch which definitely come in handy during rainy times. There is Satellite TV which unfortunately stopped working during a storm, but we did not really have much time to watch TV. There is a fully equipped kitchen with stove, fridge and cooking pans. There is an electric tea kettle. The water supplied like most of the island is rainwater, so you must boil it prior to drinking it, but it is ok to brush your teeth with. The house has two bedrooms, one with a full size bed and the other with two twins as well as two full bathrooms. The house has a very picturesque view. There are two restaurants and a car rental within walking distance. The third restaurant is a boatride across the waterway. There is a motu within kayak distance and you can rent the kayak's next door. Rima was very nice, she helped us to arrange activities and brought us a fresh coconut on arrival. Would definitely recommend staying here.You can swim in the lagoon and there is a sandbar you can easily get to. Wifi is available for a charge like most places on the island. The only downside of this house is it does not have a phone. I would recommend getting a pre-paid SIM card for your phone because if you want to get a hold of anyone it is extremely difficult to do as there are no payphones.

“Beautiful house in breathtaking location on the Islands best beach”

Fantastic house, very modern, 2 full bathrooms & everything anyone could want.
Floor to ceiling glass windows look out into the breathtaking turquoise vista of Aitutaki's lagoon which is a mere 10m away. We spent our days lounging on the deck & walking 20 steps to cool off in the lagoon. Our hosts were warm & friendly & checked in on us that we had everything we needed. Some of the best restaurants & cafes are nearby & within walking distance.
This was the holiday of a lifetime - if you don't like crowds & rampant tourism - Time seems to stand still here & a week feels like three. The perfect place to relax, unwind & leave the world behind. An unforgettable island paradise that should be everyones bucket list. We will be back beautiful Aitutaki.

Ootu Beach house house must be one of the most affordable places to stay in one of the most beautiful places on this planet. It's by far at the best spot on the whole of Aitutaki.
When there, rent a scooter and the whole Island is accessible for you to explore.
It has been by far the best holiday I've had. Friendly people, and plenty of places to enjoy all different kinds of food. I will definitely visit again.

Best spot, best beach and best place for swimming and walking in the lagoon on Aitutaki, maybe on all Cooks lands!
Great house for families! Free coconut.
Best host we have ever had!
Highly recommended.
