This isn't the owners fault but there are roosters all over town and they constantly crow all day into the early evening. They start around 5:30-6am and some mornings I've heard them crowing every 5 minutes. That was disruptive to our sleep most mornings, but again, this isn't the owners fault. Just something everyone observed everywhere on the island.
Another thing we didn't anticipate was the building of a new home right next door to ours (by the same owners). On the days we opted to stay home to relax and didn't head out for excursions or sunbathing, it was a little tough to relax on the terrace when there was hammering and construction going on in such close proximity. They did try to keep the noise level down and they plan on finishing the house mid-november so those that are coming after that time should not encounter this.
The villa was very spacious, clean, modern and the location was amazing. Perfect for the 4 of us as we each had our own space and did not feel cramped over the 6 day visit. The glass door in the dining area opens up onto the terrace that overlooks the beach. The beach was only a few steps away, good for wading and taking a quick dip but too rocky and shallow to swim. It's almost like your own private beach as there's hardly anyone around. The times we were out in the water, we saw maybe up to two people walking by! The terrace was amazing for mid-afternoon naps.
Both Anton and Liana were very friendly. Anton was working on a new house next door so it was convenient whenever we had questions, all we had to do was step out the front door and yell over to him. Very accomodating.
Bedrooms had large beds (full/queen) and enough closet/storage for us to unpack. The bathrooms were clean and modern, loved the showerheads, had constant hot water, and had good enough pressure.
We cooked a couple of dinners and breakfasts at the villa and they had everything we needed in terms of pots/pans/utensils, etc. They had speakers which we hooked up to our ipods to play music.
The house gets cleaned and linens get changed every few days so that was nice as we ended up tracking sand all over the place after our daily excursions to the beach and to town.
Avarua town is very close, within a 10 min walk or a 2 minute drive. We opted to rent a car and it was perfect for our group.
I loved this villa, you get more for your money than some of the more expensive hotels!
