LAU’S GETAWAY
Avatele, Niue

OUR Thoughts on Lau’s Getaway
Lau’s Getaway is a quality property which adds another dimension to Niue’s collection of lovely little locally-operated visitor accommodation offerings.  Lau’s Getaway is perched on the very edge of the raised coastal coral rock land for which Niue is famous and provides guests staying here with unsurpassed views out over the coastline and the close-in reef and the deep Pacific Ocean.  The proprietors (who, incidentally, also own the Kai Ika Restaurant in Alofi) have thoughtfully provided a pair of powerful binoculars on a stand in both villas enabling close-up views of marine life including migrating whales in season.  Being at the entrance of Avatele Village also gives opportunities to view the local fishermen in their dug-out outrigger canoes and the dive boats out in the wide, sweeping bay.

The villas are of a very high standard and the owners have thought of everything to enhance the holiday experience.  This is one of those places where the view hits you from the moment you enter the villa and captivates you for your entire stay.  On both levels of each stand-alone villa, there is a nice big balcony with a clear glass balustrade which, from all parts of the villa living space, gives the impression of floating above the ocean.  The living room is thoughtfully provided on the lower level and the bedroom (with the signature balcony free-standing bathtub and day bed) and the ensuite bathroom are located on the top level.  Both levels have modern timber plank flooring and clean, light painted walls.  Indoor and outdoor furniture is modern and comfortable.  The kitchen facilities include pots and pans and crockery and cutlery, so producing a full-blown meal is certainly possible, although with the many pleasant restaurants and cafés within a 10-minute drive, you will probably restrict meal production to breakfasts and the odd lunch.

Not content with amazing balcony views, Lau’s have also added a superb little cantilevered deck above the ocean frontage between the 2 villas and this is a wonderful spot for occupants of both villas to meet and toast the sunsets; that is, of course, if you can drag yourself away from sunset champagne while luxuriating in your private balcony bathtub!

There is a different tariff for both villas and this reflects the fact that the occupants of the Supreme View Villa enjoy uninterrupted views, while occupants of the other, the Deluxe View Villa, will notice the Supreme Villa off to one side, but this hardly detracts from the ocean outlook.

For a very good quality self-catering, coast top accommodation experience in the Niue style, remarkable views and attentive yet unobtrusive staff, we think you will be delighted and invigorated by a stay at Lau’s Getaway.  Honeymooners and couples of all ages - this is the place for you!

Your Accommodation Options
The two villas at Lau’s Getaway are both exactly the same size and layout.  The Supreme Villa is on slightly higher ground and virtually right on the coast top, the Deluxe Villa is beside the Supreme Villa but a little further back and around 10 metres from the cliff front. Both have stunning views - the Supreme Villa’s location closer to the cliff front provides guest balconies with a little more privacy. Villas are serviced daily.
