“Best lodging in Aitutaki”

I stayed at this property during the first half of a vacation trip. Absolutely loved it. Picked up at the airport by our wonderful hosts with fresh, fragrant leis and a freshly prepared coconut with a straw. The house could not be more convenient. A short walk to scooter rental and the best breakfast spot on Aitutaki. The spacious wrap around front porch allows for drying of wet gear and a convenient place for your sports equipment. The place was neat and tidy, with a pitcher of fresh filtered water ready in the fridge. A very nice touch.
Located right on Ootu beach you can lounge in the shade of your porch and watch the beach goers and passersby. The bedding and furniture were basic but comforrable and would easily suit two couples or a family. The unit even has a bbq if you feel like grilling up your catch of the day. Awesome, convenient location, super spacious, two beds, two baths, huge porch, outdoor shower and friendly hosts. What more could you ask for in a vacation rental?

“A view you never tire of”
Reviewed 24 August 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Our first time renting the beach house we have previously stayed in the Ootu Vila however we extended our party and bought more with us this time so needed both accomodations and can't complain. While not as new as the villa still as comfortable and as we had both we travelled between the places. We do love Ootu and Aitutaki and plan our regular return and don't consider staying anywhere else. Rima looks after your every need and assists you with local knowledge. The kids love her

“Location, location, location!”
Reviewed 24 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We chose this rental because of the location at Ootu Beach, the fact that it could accomodate our family and because it was affordable compared to much of the other accomodation on the island.
We found the house spacious, comfortable and well equipped, but the highlight was definitely the proximity to the gorgeous lagoon - just a few metres to the beach and best swimming spot.
The outdoor dining table and lounge chairs on the large deck area are also a great feature of the house.
We had a rental car for the period that we were staying there and would definitely recommend doing that as Ootu Beach is quite a distance from shops and other facilities on Aitutaki. However, there are several good spots for eating nearby - we would especially recommend the Koru Cafe.

“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.
