1. Are Kapakapa

Spacious, airy and secluded, Are Kapakapa offers a delightful holiday home for groups of up to five people. The location is a little different, out of the way above the old airport runway, but nearby a top mainland snorkelling spot at Base One. The holiday home is one of the best self-catering accommodations on Aitutaki thanks to its modern kitchen (including a dishwasher!), as well as its barbecue area under a covered verandah with roll-down mosquito covers.

2. Moana Villa Aitutaki

The best choice on the island for larger groups, Moana Villa Aitutaki sleeps up to six. The hillside three-bedroom villa nestled among tropical forest offers breathtaking views across the island and over the western side of the lagoon – an ideal sunset-viewing position! Cool off in the small outdoor pool on the deck and enjoy meals together thanks to the well-equipped kitchen and covered outdoor dining area.

3. Tavake Villa

Bask in the epic sunset at this waterfront holiday home on the shores of the main town, Arutanga. Tavake Villa is ideal for couples or young families with its one bedroom and a sofa bed in the living area. The self-catering accommodation is well-appointed and offers ways to keep the costs down on meals. Alternatively, there’s a cafe on-site if you prefer. The main draw is the location, however, where you can enjoy watching the lagoon from your covered deck. The accommodation compares to some of the beach bungalows of Aitutaki which we list in the 10 Best Boutique Resorts on Aitutaki.
