This is the perfect guesthouse to make the most of your stay on amazing Atiu. First, you will be welcomed at the airstrip with a divine local flowers and plants garland and you will be introduced to the main places of the island on the way to the guesthouse. The house is very nicely decorated with Andrea's originals tivaivai embroideries....

Excellent place to stay with wonderful hosts. I was shown the textile museum and the coffee plantation also operated by the very kind owners of this lodge. It's best to stay more than a couple of days, if you want to get the most out of the experience. Very friendly local population. Sure beats the mega-resorts on Rarotonga. Will definitely...

Juergen picked me up from the airstrip and chatted about the island as we headed back to the guesthouse. He also manages the coffee business on the island (popn ~450) and offered to arrange tours with local operators as well as his own tour of the plantation and production, ending with a tasting at his place (which also hosts the...

It was just perfect! We stayed there for three days in september 2011. The accomodation is very clean and comfortable. The hosts were very nice. Juergen organized all our trips and helped whenever it was needed. Atiu is just a wonderful place to stay and we fully recommend visiting this island to everybody coming to the Cook Islands.

Very good basic accomodation- your own private room and shared facilities- kitchen, bath, shower, living, dining. Excellent value for backpackers and those trying to save their money for activities and food. (Highly recommended!) I stayed for 3 days and half of it was raining. I hope to be back! I was able to do the eco-tour with Birdman George and...

The owners of this cottage also own Atiu Coffee and the island's Fibre Arts Gallery/Studio. So, if you wish to tour either one, it couldn't be more convenient. Jurgen and Andrea were both very nice and easy to talk with. The house is comfortable and the kitchen is large and well equipped. It's right in the middle of the village,...

We thoroughly enjoyed Atiu and the guest house was perfect. It was clean, comfortable and centrally located so we got to experience the ebb and flow of village life. The locals were friendly, the island beautiful, Jurgen was a great host. The cave tour with Marshall was great, Birdman George was also informative and passionate about his home, Island night...

The island is great, the people are friendly, Juergen and Andrea are great hosts and the guesthouse is nice and cozy. The kitchen is well equipped and the beds are comfy. It's right in the village center so everything is within...

A friend and I stayed here for only a couple of nights. Jurgen was absolutely great and sorted out some tours so that we could do as much as possible in the short time we were there. As it turned out we were two of only three tourists on the island which makes it a pretty incredible place. The guest...
