We were very, very pleased with our stay at this quiet and peaceful accommodation. Right by the ocean our A framed unit was clean and spacious and we were well taken care of by our host Caryn. Compared to other accommodation on the island, these bungalows are very reasonable priced. In fact I haven't found anything like it so close... More

We stayed in the house upstairs which was fantastic. It was tidy and had nice modern kitchen and bathroom. We had 4 people staying in it easily with room to spare. between us it cost around $50 a night which was fantastic value for money. It was located around a 15 minute walk from Muri beach or a 5 minute... More

As long as you have sea front bungalow the view is unbelievable. The bungalows are very basic and needs to be badly updated. There is a swimming pool at resort but the beach is better. You cannot swim in sea infront of bungelow because of the coral reef. The only good thing about this place is the view

Couldn't find a friendlier more helpful and accommodating host than Caryn! She went out of her way for us even though we stayed 2 nights and allowed us to camp out in the upper floor of her home while waiting for a very late night departure. Bungalows are quite basic with everything you need and we had some grub for... More

Great place, very clean!!! Make sure you ask for one of the three bungalows that are right on the beach. Almost like having your private beach. Kitchenette was adequate.

The family and I (two young children) stayed at Sunrise both before and after our trip to Aitutaki. We stayed initially in an Ocean Front Bungalow and in the 2br house on our return. We were very happy with both accommodations. Unless you really need the space or want the mod-cons the house provides, I'd recommend the Ocean Front Bungalow.... More
