        We stayed for a week, our room was clean, comfortable and well equipped, with a double and two single beds, a decent shower, a TV (with one channel) and two ceiling fans. Caryn who manages the small site was helpful and collected us on arrival from the airport and took us back for our departing flight. She works hard to maintain standards and to ensure guests have a good stay.

        At the small complex there is an outdoor swimming pool, communal snorkelling kit, a small beach, four bikes for guests to borrow and access to (a pay for) wifi hotspot.

        The bungalows are actually in the district of Ngatangiia It's a flat walk into Muri, with our 6 and 8 year olds it took circa 40 minutes, there is a basic shop for provisions nearby and the circular island bus stops on request (they charge a flat fare whether you travel right around the island or just go from one stop to the next. You can get a concessionary ticket on the bus which buys 10 adult journeys for $30 / 10 children's rides for $19).

        We had a restful, fun time here, it is not five star, but certainly provides excellent value and good clean/comfortable facilities in a peaceful and relaxing setting.

        The island is lovely; not overly commercialised, with friendly locals, lots of chickens and dogs, crystal clear water, a laid back vibe and island-time, a declining population (currently circa 6,500, apparently around 10,000 fewer than ten years or so ago).

        I would definitely not recommend. Our 'free continential breakfast' was giving us a container of corn flakes, a loaf of bread and a couple of eggs the night before. Though we read online there was free internet, they said "the wires were cut" and if we wanted internet we had to buy it at a telecom. I was scared to set anything down because it would be invaded with little red ants. I found cockroaches in my suitcase after setting it on the floor overnight. Not to mention the owner's boyfriend was completely wasted and stumbling around on the first day of our stay. Don't stay there.

        We awoke to a torrential, tropical, downpour, which lasted all day. According to the locals they have not had so much rain in one day since last August! So we settled in for a full 'school day' with mum and dad teacher and headteacher respectively. Lessons were varied and included the register, assembly, literacy, numeracy, science, art, geography …

        Although we are not complaining at all it was a very humid and pretty stifling 28 degrees today, our room has a couple of fans but no air con so we start to wilt eventually.

        We went to church this morning (Cook Islands Christian Church, it even has reviews on Trip Adviser). The service was in Maori so we didn't understand a word. However …

        The pool was operational again this morning, so world-order has been restored, the girls were straight into it after breakfast.

        Late morning we headed off to The Rarotongan Beach and Spa Resort, an upmarket complex with a great beach and a fab pool. We hitched a lift and within two minutes the same lady that gave us a lift yesterday …

        We have quickly slipped into island time! It was 9 am when we woke, Steve borrowed a cycle and went to Muri for a hair cut, while the girls played in the pool, breakfast happened somewhere around 11 am and then we started to think about how to spend the rest …
