Bumps in the Road at this Stunning, Relaxing Countryside Location
Awaken to the sound of a rooster crowing and a sunrise over the distant volcano, and relax in the late afternoon overlooking the farmland and the cattle and horses that roam free and seemingly wild (they're not) here and everywhere on Easter Island. At night one can count as many stars as you've ever seen before, in absolute silence and total darkness. We stayed here as a couple for four nights on our first and very much anticipated visit to Easter Island. The house's remote location demands a rental car, although it is a quick 15 minute drive to the airport, another five to town; and just under 20 minutes to the nearest major Moai viewing on paved if somewhat narrow roads. In Spring the drive will also feature what seemed like hundreds of newborn calves and a handful of foals: In October it is Springtime here, and the vegetables are coming up and early flowers are very much in bloom (We found Easter Island to be much more verdant than the barren place we had read about. No one goes on vacation to do their laundry or to cook like they do at home, and having a BBQ while renting a house is a nice plus. But all these advertised features were not available to us during our stay. The washing machine was broken, we were unable to light the main oven, and we could not find wood or coal to start the outdoor grill. In the greater scheme of things this is not all that big a deal; we survived and enjoyed ourselves. But because the caretaker of the house, Moi, was nowhere to be found after an initial encounter, we can only guess as to whether these issues -- and other questions that arose during our stay -- would have been taken care of readily had he been present. We mentioned this to the host afterwards. Easter Island was for us a once-in-a-lifetime trip and we will never forget the peace and calm afforded by this house, almost literally "in the middle of nowhere." If you book it, make sure to inquire in advance about the facilities and the services that will be available to you during your stay.
