Gina's of Aitutaki Island - Your Passport to an Unforgettable Tropical Polynesian Holiday in the Magical Cook Islands


Welcome to the Gina's Garden Lodges and Akaiami Beach Lodge web site.

Gina's Budget Friendly Self Catering Island Holidays, Aitutaki, Cook Islands

Ginas Aitutaki , Cook Islands, offers two different Aitutaki  budget friendly self contained accommodation locations - Ginas Garden Lodges in the beautiful lush setting of Tautu Village on the main island of Aitutaki, and Ginas Beach Lodge on the uninhabited island of Akaiami in stunning Aitutaki Lagoon.

We are family friendly and welcome children of all ages. The Garden Lodges is on the main island, and is about 5 minutes walk from the Tautu landing, on the Eastern shores of Aitutaki lagoon.

We are also amateur radio friendly. Des, one of the owners has been a ham for over 25 years

Hams will operate from one of the Lodges which will also be used for accommodation.

Two Antennas covering  5 bands  will be available for anyone staying at Ginas Garden Lodges - a Cushcraft A3S 3 element tribander for 20m, 15m and 10 m , and a Butternut vertical for 80m and 40 m. The garden is more than 85m East west, 100m North South.

My second, beachside property is situated on one of the reef islands at Akaiami Island - 5 miles across the lagoon. This is Gina's Akaiami Beach Lodge.

Both of these locales offer an environment that is special to Eastern Polynesia, and in their own way give reality to those Pacific dreams which travellers seek, and which cannot be found at Resort Hotels. These two secluded properties are ideal for honeymooners.

Our tropical garden and our beautiful Akaiami Island beach locations both give our guests the very best of what Aitutaki Island has to offer - at very good value for money prices. Gina's appeals to all kinds of travellers, who appreciate the genuine Polynesian friendliness and charm we offer in a lovely environment, with comfortable accommodation.

Guests get a very good standard of private totally self-contained self catering vacations accomodation in a choice of two beautiful South Pacific settings.You can have a custom holiday to suit yourself, where you can spend any number of days on the main island, at Gina's Garden Lodges,in a flower filled tropical garden setting with a swimming pool,and any number of days at Akaiami  Beach Lodge, on a beautiful beach at Akaiami island. Both locations are very private and peaceful.

We have a large (7.45 metre) aluminium hulled launch, equipped with wheelhouse, cabin, and sheltered shaded seating for guests on the aft deck. This beautiful seaworthy boat is powered by two Yamaha 115 HP Outboard motors, and is equipped with all safety features. She is used to take guests to my property on Akaiami Island. Myself and my husband both hold Cook Islands Marine Board Certified Boatmasters Certificates, and have many years of experience on our beautiful lagoon.

Aitutaki - The Island of Desire

Aitutaki Island is truly the jewel in the Cook Islands Crown. The vastness of her exquisite emerald and turquoise lagoon is legendary, whilst her green mantled island offers flowered roads and little villages to explore.

                                   Aitutaki Island - the Emerald Jewel in an Azure Sea

Aitutaki has been famous the world over for her beauty and her warm, gentle people ever since the first discovery by Europeans in 1821. Aitutaki offers a rare and precious charm for discerning visitors.

When the full moon is hanging in the mango trees like a great magic lantern, and the tradewind off the lagoon rustles through the scented frangipani blossom, then your heart will understand.
