Room typesWe have only 3 bures set on a small slice of golden sand beachfront.
The bures are set apart approximately 50 feet from one another, so we are the perfect location for a private retreat or for your Honeymoon.
Because we are a beachfront property the only people who can access it are folks staying here with us. And when we are full, that means there are only 6 of you !!
the Papaya Bure is the smallest, at 280 sq feet. It has a queen size bed & a small, very private verandah on which you can lie in your chaise & read your book or simply watch the waves as they hit the shore. Many people like this cottage because it is affordable & very sweet.
The Mango & Banana Bures are known as our Honeymoon Cottages, with king size beds & outdoor attached hot water showers overlooking the ocean. (these are so popular that some guests have actually gone home & built themselves an outdoor shower, one even in Alaska!) These bures are large at 450 sq feet with oversized verandahs & comfy chaise lounges to sink into. From the Mango Bure you have the best seat in the house for the afternoon parrots (kulas) flitting from tree to tree. And because the Banana Bure is right down by the beach you will occasionally spot a sea turtle or a heron.
Each bure has unobstructed beach views & wonderful sea breezes. All have a safe, a small fridge, cd players with heaps of cd's, lots of good books, a ceiling fan over the bed & sunrise from your pillow~

Meals are served at our oceanfront restaurant, on your private verandah, or down on the beach by candlelight.
EventsWeddings are our specialty so let us know if there is a last minute decision to "tie the knot" while you are here. We also love to organize a "Vow Renewel" for this special holiday if you like.
We can have the village come here & perform an indigenous "meke" for our guests right on the beach. This can accompany the wedding or vow renewel, altho you don't have to get married to witness a Meke!
