Ikari House is a privately-owned fishing lodge managed by Jacob & Lavinia Teem with the help of local staff and some of the finest fishing guides available in Kiribati. Located in Ronton, the property lies at the edge of the lagoon entrance with its own private beach and view of Cook Island. Flyfishers hunt bonefish, giant, bluefin and golden trevally along with triggerfish and milkfish. Customized offshore trips for wahoo, sailfish and a variety of tuna are also encouraged. A thatched maneaba serves as both restaurant and bar where guests enjoy communal dining and cold beverages at days end.
