The two most important aspects of a good stay is location and good service. Avana is rich in both aspects. Desiree is a brilliant host. She goes above and beyond without being in your face, she offered insightful advice without us even asking and when we did have questions about the island/cook island way of life no matter how silly...

This locations really exceeded our expectations. You would normally have to pay over $300 per night at a resort, but we've ended up having one of our best holidays yet for half the price; to top this off, everything felt genuine and not put on. Every day, we were able to use the kayaks and equipment and snorkel in the...

We loved its location at the edge of the lagoon with its ocean views and breezes. Since it is situated away from the main road, it is very quiet yet just an easy...

The Apartment was clean and spacious, and apart from one particularly hot, humid night the ceiling fans were adequate to get a good nights sleep. We arrived after 9pm...

We had an awesome 7 nights. The views were magic and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff were very friendly and we were able to cook the Mahimahi that we caught out on Seafari Charters on the BBQ by the pool. It was wonderful. Thank you.
