Places to Stay in Niue with a Kitchen
With a good selection of grocery stores, the Niue Market to get local produce, and fishing charters to catch dinner, there’s not much reason not to cook your own meals in Niue (except because the restaurants are amazing, but you certainly don’t need to eat out every night). Luckily, all but two accommodations on the island have self-catering facilities, but some are more complete than others. With that in mind, we’ve put together a list of the best self-catering accommodation in Niue with the most complete kitchens. That way, you’ll find it easy, better yet, enjoyable to spruce up your own meals!
1. Namukulu Cottages
One, two and three-bedroom cottages are nestled in tropical bush surrounding an outdoor swimming pool at the Namukulu Cottages – all of which are equipped with full kitchens which are a joy to cook in. Make use of the full-sized refrigerator, microwave, stovetop and multiple ceiling fans to keep things breezy while you’re cooking. What’s more, there’s a hooded barbecue on your private deck, as well as a pizza oven on-site, for more cooking options during your stay.

A contemporary two-bedroom home in Alofi North, Anakule’s main feature is its central open-plan kitchen and dining area. You’ll never complain about not having space in the large kitchen with an oven and electric stove.

10. Clifftop Fale
Last but certainly not least, the Clifftop Fale is an affordable holiday home with a tremendous clifftop location and facilities to please the self-caterer.

There’s even a barbecue outside to enjoy on your wraparound deck among beautifully landscaped gardens.
