Guest Book

"I had only intended to stay for one week on the Island of Atiu and ended up spending a full two months there. This was largely due to the Humphreys who were the perfect hosts of their tropical paradise. Never before in my travels had I felt as well cared for or felt as much a member of a family as I was by the Humphreys. The accommodation was first class in a modern home with all the latest conveniences. Marshall is an excellent chef and has a virtually unlimited repertoire of both European and Cook Island specialties. The number of local venues that the Humphreys made available to us every day on the island kept us stimulated and intrigued by island life in the South Pacific." Gary, USA
