...we like to do a fair bit of research ahead of any trip we make to make sure it will be the best it can be for us and Jennie as infinitely patient with all of our questions! Just prior to leaving on our trip I spoke with Jennie for well over half an hour as she gave me a full run down on the island and answered all my last minute questions.
We ended up staying at the Are Hine holiday home and it was literally perfect for us all - it was cool at all times and had a cavernous central kitchen/lounge which was great for gathering in.
We were very appreciative of all the support we had once we got to the island also in the form of Jennie's business partner Kathy. She was always just a call away and was able to provide us with a last minute portacot and even toys for our girl which was a godsend for when the weather kept us inside. Kathy tee'd up a fabulous babysitter, Leilani, for us which we used for 2 of the nights there. She was just fantastic and although I had never used a babysitter other than family before I had no qualms about leaving our daughter in her care.
Needless to say, we will definitely use Jennie again for any trips we take to the island!
