Loved this place. Gorgeous setting. Very sweet proprietors (Vickie and Peter) who made is feel very well looked after. Arranged our tours and baked us treats. There are only two bungalows here and the place is very peaceful and private.

What a wonderful stay ! I was amazed by the beauty of the island and the superb location of Paparei Bungalows; Right on the beach they offer spectacular sunsets and are in the center of the village with great access to everything you might need. The bungalow itself is very clean and offers all the comfort you need. Best part...

Along with our 3 children my husband and I have stayed with Peter and Vicki on several occassions. We just love Aitutaki, but really it is the warmth and generosity of Vicki and Peter that keep us coming back. You will not find nicer people to stay with!! We feel like we are coming home to stay with family for...

There are two one-bedroom bungalows on the west side of the island, right on the beach/lagoon. They are equipped with a fridge, electric frypan, stereo, small dining table, couch, double-bed and separate bathroom/toilet. Each has a deck with two deckchairs. The owner lives in the main house behind, and regularly drops in coconut bread, banana cake and fruit. The beach...

Stayed with Vicki and Peter at Paparei bungalows for 6 nights with my Wife and two children (2 and 12) and I can safely say we had a great time. Lodgings: Terrific, perfect for our requirements, very clean, comfortable and right on the beach. We could sit on the deck and watch the kids play in the water, or we...

If you want a tropical sunset this is the place to be. If you want clean and comfortable this is the place to be. If you want genuine warm Kiwi/Cook Island hospitality this is the place to be. We couldn't have chosen better. We did have to travel a whole five minutes to go snorkelling though. To offset that though,...

Unfortunately Peter and Vicki were away, but we were greeted by their daughter Trina at the airport. Straight away her friendly laid back welcome made us feel relaxed and at home. Although the beach isnt exactly a great swimming spot, hire a scooter from across the road and explore the island, its a blast! But it is close to everything...

We spent 5 nights at Paparei with our 2 chn(5 and 2). Unfortunately we had bad luck with the weather and missed the sunsets which this spot would have been perfect for but of course you can't do anything about that. The beach was beautiful white sand and the bungalow was more or less right on the beach, great for...

The bungalows are as per the website, very clean with a stereo and a nice deck but you can not really cook as there is only an electric pan. The bungalows are located at the end of the lagoon , very close to the "city" . So it is convenient to get food, go to restaurants but it is a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Beautifully appointed beachfront bungalows. Each Bungalow is well equipped with an open plan kitchenette, lounge and dining area; a seperate bedroom with ensuite and a great deck facing out to the lagoon. Watch whales play on the outskirts of our reef, see the cheeky trevally's chase the smaller fish onshore and marvel at the stunning beauty of our Aitutaki Lagoon. Lay in your hammock with a good book, or simply look up and get lost in the gentle sway of the coconut palms overhead. Come and enjoy the smiles, drumbeats and gentle culture of Aitutaki. We look forward to welcoming you to Paparei Bungalows, Aitutaki - A dream come true... ... more   less
