My place is close to the airport, the town center, parks, and has great views of the garden and the ocean in the distance. You’ll love my place because it is modern, clean and cosy. My place is great for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids). Some of the islands best beaches are a short distance away. Check in time is 3pm and check out is @ 11am.
The unit is open plan and very private. It is situated on the ground level of our 2 story house. There is a nice deck outside the front door which looks onto our lawn and garden and you can also see the ocean in the distance. There is a sun lounger to use and chairs to relax on. The kitchen has a new fridge freezer, Jug, toaster, microwave and hot plate with pots and pans for cooking meals. The bed is comfortable and has side tables and lamp. There is a pedestal fan to keep you cool too. There is a two seater couch to sit on and we can provide a fold out bed on request for extra people. The bathroom is modern and clean with a rain shower head. The floor is tiled with soft rugs. On Sunday there is a neighbor who makes fresh doughnuts starting at 7 am and next to the doughnut shop we also have a neighbor who makes fresh ika mata (raw fish - tuna with coconut cream) and sashimi. A must try!
Our neighborhood is very quiet. From the top story there is a great view of the ocean. There are the odd local chicken and rooster that pass by our house.
  • Beautiful flat, totally furnished with all you need to stay comfortable. Is very near to city center (around 20 minutes by walk) and Nicholas and his family are very nice and helpful.

  • Nick and Linda are amazing! Very fortunate and thankful to stay here! The guest studio is excellent, clean, and has everything you need for an awesome stay!

  • We had an excellent stay at the Rarotonga Mountain Getaway. The spacious studio with modern ensuite bathroom facilities, comfortable double (possibly bigger than double) bed, private balcony with furniture made a great place to stay in Rarotonga. Nick kindly picked us up from the airport in his spacious car and was kind an friendly. We were pleasantly surprised by the overall quality and finish of the apartment which was modern, clean and tidy with some essentials to help us get started (noodles, cereals, tea, coffee, milk, sugar, filtered water and even shampoo and conditioner). Provided in the kitchen was a portable stove, sandwich toaster, microwave and fridge freezer as well as all utensils and cutlery needed - all of which were new and clean. The location was generally peaceful (there’s always the noise of cockerels whenever you go in the Cook Islands but it was not as bad here as other places we have been). The location is lovely in lush tropics forests with a gorgeous view of the mountains from the private balcony to enjoy. Town is about a 20-25 minute Leisurely walk with a small convenience shop 5 minutes away. This location is ideal for those hiring a bike/scooter like us or even a car which then gives you access to any of the islands beautiful beaches in between 5 and 30minutes away depending on where you like to go. Nick and Linda (and their delightful children) were fantastic hosts and they, along with their nanny were more than happy to help with anything we needed (e.g washing clothes). A lovely surprise to have fresh doughnuts on Sunday morning delivered by the kids! Having stayed in a Raro bungalow before we would highly recommend this place above anything else we have seen as it provides great value for money, complete freedom and a really genuine Cook Islands experience that you wouldn’t get from a bigger resort.

    Jennifer2017-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • Nick is amazing host. And the house is awsome. Very clean and Comfortable. There is everything you need.

    Jakub2018-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • WOW! What a perfect place, so much better than the photos look. Easily accessible to the airport and the town by foot. Nick and his family really do go above and beyond to make your stay amazing. I can't recommend this place enough and after driving around the island this is the ONLY place I would stay in Raro!

    Laura2018-06-16T00:00:00Z
  • awesome place to stay! host (nick) was awesome and so accommadating! will definitely be back

    Hello and Welcome to our Polinesian private space. BONJOUR, HOLA, HALLO / GUTEN TAG, CIAO, NAMASTE, SALAAM, ZDRAS-TVUY-TE, OHAYO / KONNICHIWA / KONBAN WA, NI HAU
    Our lodge and flats are set in a comfortable house just half minute walking distance trough our private walkway to the beautiful white sandy beach, breathtaking sunset, lagoon, coral reef and surrounded by a pleasant garden with tropical trees, plants and flowers. Additional Location Information Rarotonga is a round island with a turquoise lagoon and lovely beach. We are in Arorangi the west side of the island, only 8 minutes drive from the capital Avarua and 5 minutes away from the Golf Course and the international airport (daily flights to/from New Zealand/Australia and once a week direct flights to Tahiti/Los Angeles). It is a quiet place and safe area, as all the rest of the island. We are situated on the beach side, just one minute walk to a beautiful white sandy beach and breathtaking sunset. You can enjoy swimming and snorkeling in the blue/green lagoon. Sport lovers can bike around the Island (38 km). The area is full of outdoor recreational opportunities including boating, fishing, walking, snorkeling, diving, safari tour and scenic flights. You can also enjoy a whale watching, shopping at the Punanga Nui Market every Saturday morning where you will be able to find local arts and handcrafts and beautiful black pearls.

  • This was a wonderful spot on Rarotonga to base yourself for exploration. A very short walk from a wonderful beach. Carlo is a great host, and a wonderful chef. I would highly recommend the breakfasts, and the Italian meals that he can cook for you. The bed was very comfortable. And you would be able to self-cater, if that is your choice. Overall, a great stay using the same exact beach as a nearby hotel, at a much cheaper price, with many more features and privacy.

    Philip2016-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • Good location, excellent snorkeling right nearby in front of Edgewater 2 min walk from the property. Beautiful gardens to relax in. Carlo was an excellent host and gave great recommendations for the islands best eats.

    Warren2018-05-19T00:00:00Z
  • Prompt pick up. Very kind. Amazing beach a 2 minute walk away. Wonderful garden that my daughter played in. Would definitely stay again!

    Stephanie2018-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay with Carlo and Roberta in their Tree House Lodge was amazing. They are fantastic hosts! The apartment was spacious and comfortable. The location was great, just a short walk to the beach and close to places to eat and drink, as well as a bus stop. We asked Carlo to make us dinner a few times and each time it was amazing. As others have described, he’s an incredible chef! In addition, he was extremely helpful with tips and advice that made our trip even better. If you’re looking for a comfortable place to stay on Rarotonga, you can’t go wrong with The Tree House Lodge!

    Mae Lynn2017-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Carlo’s Tree House was a home away from home. Very clean with everything you need. He was there to greet us and show us around the house even though we arrived at a late time and he was there to take our luggage to the airport when we wanted to ride our scooters around a bit more. The location is great, only less than a minute walk to a beach and the Edgewater Hotel is only another minute away on top of that meaning you have the best of both worlds - hotel facilities (restaurant and bar for example) and the comfort of your own home. There is a washer, dryer and iron so you never have to worry about finding somewhere to do your laundry AND you don’t have to pack as much as you can wash your clothes whenever. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need to cook so you can have a home cooked meal if you don’t feel like going out. There’s even board games to enjoy and a lovely varandah to enjoy them on. Thank you Carlo.

    Telena2017-12-17T00:00:00Z
  • Carlo and his wife were fantastic hosts - our plane was delayed which meant an unreasonably late arrival but Carlo still collected - and fed us - which we appreciated greatly after a long flight. He is a fantastic chef - I especially enjoyed his home-made fettuccini and mediterranean salad- to die for and brekkie is tasty and convenient! The house is similar to that presented in the pictures and is in a fantastic location for breathtaking sunsets and walking distance to bike rental - we would definitely stay again and wish both of them all the success they deserve as fantastic hosts.

    Jessica2016-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Carlo's Tree House property. Wonderful location on an amazing island. Carlo is a wonderful host and deserving of his superhost status. He is a very kind, generous, helpful, and thoughtful man. He is quick to respond to any messages. He was available if we needed anything. He had amazing local insights to share with us to enhance our stay. Speaking to him was very easy and entertaining. We are glad not to just have stayed here but to have met him as well. The property is as described. I had instructions beforehand on how to locate it. We really liked the space. It was comfortable for us and had everything that we needed. Bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, living room, patio. The bedroom was a nice size and the bed was comfortable. The ceiling fan can help cool you down at night and was appreciated. Ensuite bathroom with everything you need and expect. The kitchen had a two burner hot plate, kettle, fridge, microwave, cooking utensils and dinnerware. The best amenity here is a filtered water tap so you don't have to worry. The other room had a couch to sit on, table to dine at, television, cable tv, and a Roku type option to watch movies as the tv stations are in French. There is also a nice sliding glass door leading out to the patio/deck/lanai/verandah area. We had a parking spot and gorgeous views of the surrounding trees and plants. Just a short walk away down a path and you will be at the beach. It is suitable for snorkeling and great to explore and look at seashells and coral and also for amazing sunsets. If you want to eat out there are numerous places nearby. If you want to self-cater that is easily done as we did most of the time. Don't hesitate to ask Carlo if you need something (he just might have it) or want recommendations for the area. He is a wealth of knowledge. Our only disappointment was being jet-lagged the day of our arrival and not going out to join Carlo for dinner. This is where you want to stay, this is where we will stay again if we are fortunate enough to return. Great host, wonderful location, amazing island. Carlo thank you for your hospitality, kindness and allowing us to stay with you. Ciao & Aloha, David & Debbie

    David2018-05-05T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot for our family to base ourselves... nice to have access to bbq too. Easy access to the beach with use of hosts snorkelling gear. Thanks Bruce and Sue (Carlos was away)

    Enjoy the beauty of our tropical Island in the shades of the mountains but only minutes away from the beach. Explore the island by foot, bike or car, hike the mountains, wander in the valleys, swim and snorkel, scuba dive or paddle board in the turquoise waters of our lagoon or simply do nothing and enjoy Little Paradise. An European style breakfast with added tropical "delights" and fresh eggs from our own chicken is included to make you fit for your exciting day.
    The little house is located on our large property, away from the road with the magnificent mountains in the back. You can hike the mountains, cycle along the back road, enjoy the morning sun coming up over the palm trees and just relax and recharge your batteries. You and you kids will be entertained by the goats, the cats, the colorful roosters and hens with their baby chicks. You are welcome to explore the property and enjoy some tropical fruits straight from the tree. Needless to say that the property is very safe, pretty quiet apart from some animal "noise" and just perfect for a relaxing holiday. Bedrooms: 1 double bedroom, 1 fold out sofa in living area. Booking can be combined with Bedsitter (Single bedroom), for one additional guest.
    The property is very safe and is located in a very safe area on the east side of the island. You can see beautiful sunrises right from your door step. Since nothing is really far on the island you can reach the next beautiful snorkeling spot or the Night market in Muri, or the next restaurant in just a few minutes.
  • simple clean accommodation, easy walk to the main road, all good if you don't mind the roosters crowing very early in the morning - breakfast is epic in many ways.

    Paulsy2016-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • Joey, Odette and Petra are the perfect hosts. Breakfast with them is chatty, funny and informative. They are easy going hosts who go over and above to make you feel welcome. Their farm stay is lovely and the bungalow perfect for a relaxing get away. We certainly didn't want to leave.

    robyn2017-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Joe and Odette are exemplary hosts. With the airport pickup we quickly felt at ease even though our luggage was left behind. Upon arrival Joe and Odette offered the clothes off their backs so we would have something until our bags showed up. When they eventually showed, our bags were promptly picked up and brought to the farm by our hosts without us even having to ask. They also lent us a couple of bikes free of charge which allowed us to explore half the island in the first few days of our stay (saving us approximately $70NZD). Next up, the mornings: the roosters get up a few hours before the sunrise, yet it didn't disrupt our sleep or schedule...simply adding to the character of the stay. Joe and Odette were up before sunrise putting together an incredible breakfast that changed a little every day. Farm fresh breakfast and great conversation about the history of the island and current events along with great laughs was the most enjoyable way to begin the day! They encourage you to interact with their animals: from the goats, to 'Lulu' the pig, and to the chickens always looking for a snack. We would absolutely recommend spending part or all of your vacation with Joe, Odette, and the farm animals.

    Philip2017-05-24T00:00:00Z
  • Joe and Odette are amazing! They are incredibly accomodating making us feel very welcome in their home, I have to say this is probably the best experience I've had with air BnB. They picked us up from the airport late at night when we arrived, the unit was very comfortable everythig is very new and modern and gave us amazing breakfasts each morning. I would definately reccomend staying with joe and odette they are lovely people with great local knowledge and our stay far exceeded our expectations, we hope to be back someday!

    Emma2016-05-21T00:00:00Z
  • Nous avons passé un excellent séjour chez Joey et Odette. Ils ont été adorables avec nous, sont venus nous chercher à l'aéroport, nous ont amenées au supermarché pour faire quelques courses, nous ont préparé le petit déjeuner avec des fruits frais tous les matins, nous ont conseillées sur les activités à faire à Rarotonga. Nous nous sommes senties comme à la maison ! Le lieu est très calme, au cœur de la nature, la maison était spacieuse et très propre. Nous recommandons vivement :)

    Pauline2016-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • Joe and Odette are amazing hosts. Both so accommodating towards my friend and I. We will definitely be back to visit and stay again! We were given a scooter to use, breakfast, toiletries and more! Fresh fruit every morning, and even went to church with Joeys māmā. Everything was perfect. Meitaki, Kia Manuia.

    Ripeka2016-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • The Farmstay is a wonderful place to reside while in Rarotonga. Joe and Odette are hands down the most beautiful hosts you will ever come across, they are family orientated and have such a beautiful understanding of Raro the culture and traditions. They made the experience that more memorable and special thank you... will recommend you to anyone.

    Stacey2017-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • We just had an exceptional week. The hospitality was superb. The breakfast is everyday a little bit different- changing from eggs, homemade pancakes and yummy fruits. But the best part were the conversations on the big breakfast table - we really felt like at home :) The accommodation itself is great. Spotless clean, modern and for two people very spacious. We highly recommend staying there and we can't wait to come back .

    The place we live is amazing. We have the best spot for Kite-Surf and Stand-Up Paddling, snorkelling, diving and swimming. We live 5 car-minutes from the tourist area Muri. If you want you can go there to have a look at the art galleries, enjoy the nice dinners in restaurants or join a kite-surf/Yoga lesson. There is also the Muri-Night-Market where you can get local food for dinner. Just next door there is Charlie´s Cafe and Bar and SUP-Hire where you can rent kayaks and stand up paddle boards and also can eat very well. A 10 minutes walk to the Tropical Garden is a must! Absolutely amazing place, for relax, weddings or just having a nice lunch break.
  • This place is paradise. All the praise for the bungalow, location and hosts is well deserved. We missed Kahiki as he was out traveling with his music but Nicole was absolutely amazing. The bungalow is on an amazing stretch of beach and the perfect location on the island. We couldn't have asked for more. Book it! You wont be dissapointed.

    Dustin2018-05-05T00:00:00Z
  • The absolute best location, a bit of beach all to yourself and yet close to everything. The room is stylish and reflective of the island. Great hosts.

    Jade2018-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • This place is an absolute paradise! The location right on the beach was second-to-none, and perfectly placed for a swim or a snorkel. Nicole and Kahiki (as well as their pets) were super friendly. Particularly appreciated their tips on where to eat, as well as their generosity with the snorkeling equipment. Would love to visit again!

    Matthew2018-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely amazing! I almost want to give it a bad review so it stays a secret haha Honestly, we couldn’t have imagined to stay anywhere else on the island. We loved every moment of our stay. Nicole and Kahiki were fantastic and we loved getting to know them and their fur-babies. We miss them so much! The bungalow is perfect for 2 (or 1) and offers so many creature comforts. You think you’re just getting a room, but it really feels like home. The view from the balcony is endlessly breathtaking, with the best beach on the island waiting for you! 10/10

    Maritza2017-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • This spot is so beautiful right out from your own private beach is the best snorkling spot of the Island. The Bunglow had eveything you needed and just the most amazing spot. Very romantic with lovely host. Highly recommend here

    Kerina2018-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • I really want to thank Nicole and Kahiki for everything they did for us during our stay. The care with which they maintain their bungalow , the precious advices on Rarotonga. The beach bungalow is a lovely and precious place. The interior is even more beautiful and cared than in the pictures, the bed is comfortable, the shower is spacious and really equipped with everything. The location is magnificent, in fact the beach just in front is beautiful and perfect for snorkeling, for long walks and to relax, and the house is only 5 minutes by scooter from Muri (or 15/20 minutes on foot, or a beautiful walking on the white sand beach). Right next door there's Charlie's Cafe, perfect for a beer or a sandwich. We will never forget the starry sky just outside the bungalow's terrace! Nicole and Kahiki are two fantastic hosts, helpful, kind and nice. Our stay was absolutely perfect, beyond our expectations, peaceful, relaxing but also fun (Rarotonga offers lots of different activities). Do not look for another accommodation! This is undoubtedly the sweetest, romantic and beautiful oceanfront room you can find in Rarotonga. Thank you guys :)

    Claudia2018-07-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great hosts with so much knowledge about the island. Went over and above to accomodate me last minute and help me out! Cheers guys!

    Milica2018-04-23T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay so much. Nicole and Kahiki are so helpful. The Bungalow is private and fully self-contained. Best place to stay In Rarotonga! We look forward to coming to stay again as soon as we can.

    My place is close to restaurants, public transport, and the city center. You’ll love my place because of the neighborhood and the coziness. My place is suitable for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.
    Situated in a very large garden and in the middle of town our place is ideal for those who enjoy a large space and close proximity to all the attractions.
    We have a very peaceful neighbourhood and like next to a school so no neighbours after 3pm or weekends. It is safe to walk into town or go for a run/bike ride.
  • Great location, within walking distance into the centre of town. Still far away enough from the busy busy side of town in terms of noise etc. Very friendly hosting family. Close to the family house but still private enough. They have separated them well.

    Sheena2017-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • thank you for your helpful! So, we stayed comfortable in your house and enjoy. we made great memories in rarotonga. thank you

  • Fletchers place was perfect, everything was within walking distance!! We had everything we needed & the location was perfect for the Saturday market & for us to do the “Cross Island Trek”. Fletcher was even kind enough to take us to the airport to catch our early morning flight to Aitutaki...his communication was impeccable! Thx again!

    Liz2017-12-05T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely accommodation right in the centre of town and paradise. The shower was a bit erratic temperature wise but is due to be fixed shorty, really no problem on a warm day.

    Chris2017-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • They were so sweet, helping us when we needed it, sharing fresh fruit and avocado (delicious!), and letting us check out late when our flight was at an ungodly hour! Easy homebase that paired well with our scooter for a fantastic 10 days in Raro. Hit The Cafe for breakfasts, LBV for iced coffee, and be sure to meet Alone at Shipwrecks for a fun chat in the best bar for sunsets.

    Hilary2017-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • The place is close to airport, convenient and you stay right next to Fletcher and his lovely family. Pros - value for money unbeatable cheapest on the island and at this rate you get your own place with a fridge cooktop and fans plus the hosts are just amazing. Its a 10min walk to the main town for any groceries and the markets are also a 10min walk. There is no lagoon type beach in walking distance, you need a scooter without which you are stuck. Cons - place is off the main road so without a scooter the place is hard to get to and all tour pickups also happen on the main road and at night dogs make it difficult to walk alone. There are some issues with bugs but that's island wide and not host related. The place is a bit dated but other wise functional and not luxurious but at that price you can't go wrong. There is no balcony or lanai either but again for that price you shouldn't expect one either.

  • We were staying for a month while volunteering at the local hospital and were contacted in advance regarding airport transfers and this all worked very smoothly as we were met off the plane. The accomodation was as described and was simple but clean and comfortable (especially the beds). Having the pool there was fantastic and the grounds were lovely and very well maintained by the hard working gardener! There was also a handy games room with a pool table and board games as well as a wifi hotspot which was useful (although wifi on the island is expensive - 1.25gb for NZ$50). However we were a bit surprised when we were told there would be an early check in fee (even though the once a week flight from LA arrives on monday morning so there was no alternative arrival time and the place was empty until we arrived) and the transfer fee is comparable with a cab and more than the bus (though that can be erratic + doesnt start till 7am ish). We ended up leaving 2 days early as our flights were brought forward and were told we would not get a refund for those nights (fair enough) but then found out our bungalow had been resold for those two nights. This didnt spoil our enjoyment of the place but did leave a bit of a bad taste especially as we were already paying the early check in and transfer fees in full. Overall though I would recommend this place especially as other places like Rarotonga Backpackers are a similar price if there for a long period and this is definitely nicer.

  • Ariana bungalows is exactly what it says on the tin. Amazing little place in beautiful gardens with a spotless swimming pool. Kylie and Marshal made us feel very welcome on several occasions and really friendly every day! Bungalows are very clean and has every thing you need. We hope to be back again in the future! Thank you so much xx

    Jade2017-04-28T00:00:00Z
  • Fabulous place we hired two bungalows and are still currently in one so we will write a full review when we leave . It's fabulous and a real find . Simply book to stay here if you want a true feel of the island and not a tourist approach .wonderful .

    Jayne2017-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • I recommend this place to anyone who is wanting to visit Rarotonga. Best location and very good hosts! We will be back again :)

    Andrew2016-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time in Raro while staying at Ariana. The bungalow was just what we imagined it would be like... and so clean and airy and fresh. It had everything we needed to have a lovely relaxing and hassle free holiday. An absolutely pristine pool was fantastic - and we used it extensively, even very late at night before going to bed. Evelyn, Sharon and Ra were great company, friendly without being intrusive, and kept us supplied with fresh fruit from their gardens. They kept the place immaculate...poor Ra, we felt for him every time the wind blew, dropping more leaves and branches everywhere, which he dutifully raked up every day. We really could easily have stayed another week...or longer!

    Chrissy2015-03-29T00:00:00Z
  • From our first contact Kylie and Marshall were helpful, accommodating and quick to answer any questions we had. The bungalows were exactly what we had in mind - we were even greeted personally even though we arrived in the middle of the night. Fruit bowl laden with exotic goodies and milk and coffee to see us through the first morning. Set back from the road it was very peaceful and safe for our wee toddler. Two minutes walk from a 24 hour supermarket. The highlight was being treated to a perfectly cooked Umu, freshly made coconut cream and barrow of drinking coconuts an altogether unforgettable experience, cheers.

    RAROTONGA, COOK ISLANDS, Острова Кука

    My place is close to Beach, restaurants, the airport, mountains, . You’ll love my place because of Romantic tropical setting, Great views, sunset over the ocean every evening, peace and quiet, privacy, Newly built and furnished, modern design, air conditioned, wonderful outdoor living space. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.
    We are in a quiet low density residential neighbourhood. the neighbours keep animals like goats and pigs and ducks and have big gardens with flowers and tropical friut trees. we are up the hill with great views. 500m walk to local convenience store (Friendlimart), restaurant and bar (Castaway) and cafe (Beluga).
  • Glenn and Mona went over and above what was excepted. I would stay at their place again!

    Max2018-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • Very welcoming stay! Glenn picked me up at the airport (at around 5am I may add) which was definitely above and beyond. Everything was just as advertised in terms of the unit - very comfortable and cozy all around. Location was a short walk to the main road / beaches; easy to get into town. Overall, very quiet little spot. Would recommend to anyone visiting Rarotonga.

    Bryan2016-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Out of the way, pretty peaceful really..

    Dianne2018-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice accommodation. Its amazing, what you can do with a ship container.

    Nico2017-05-24T00:00:00Z
  • A great spot for a peaceful stay that is still within walking distance to the beach and places to eat. Glenn was a great host and his communication was excellent!

    Sarah2018-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • Kihana's hideaway was great. Very clean, tidy and well equipped! Glen was very friendly and easy to communicate with. Would recommend

    Abbie2018-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • The location is a nice quiet residential road off the main circular road. You get a view out to the sea between the foliage. The apartment was tidy and clean. Some bugs do sneak in but it’s the tropics so it’s expected. Glen was great, picked us up from the airport and gave us tips for where to go etc. There are bars and restaurants a short drive away. There’s a car/scooter rental shop within walking distance. WiFi is on a voucher system but plenty of hotspots around the cafes and bars so you can check emails. Snorkelling, diving, beach days all affordable and all a short drive away. Don’t miss Muri Lagoon - amazing place to relax in paradise. And Charlie’s for live music and amazing food (large portions!).

    Kia Orana, come and experience this private and cozy getaway on beautiful Turoa beach. Elegant yet affordable bungalow with 2 studio units w/ attached bathrooms. Studios can be booked separately for couples or as a 2 bedroom bungalow for 4 person.
    Our cozy bungalows are set in a secluded and private location in beautiful Turoa Beach. The bungalows are studio concept with kitchenette and bathroom attached. We have 2 units available, can be booked individually for couples or booked as a 2 bedroom bungalow which accommodates 4. There is a cafe and bakery nearby and transport to the town center Avarua is mainly by bus or you can book a car or scooter to take you around the island. It is very easy to get around if you have transport, there is only one main road which goes all around the island.
    Turoa is a quiet neighbourhood, you will have the beach mostly to yourself and all the locals are friendly and accommodating. It is located exactly half way around the island from the main township Avarua. There is a Bakery (Turoa Bakery) and Cafe (Saltwater Cafe) across the street. A bus stop is located just next door on the main road. 5mins drive to the supermarket (Wigmores). We are 10mins from Muri Beach, the main tourist area in Rarotonga, where there is a night market, restaurants, bars, clinic, pharmacy and convenience stores.
  • These bungalows are right on the water on the southern side of the island. Walking across the road to the Saltwater Cafe is a real bonus for those early morning coffees. The bungalows need some work done on the outside, but inside is all you need for a great stay. It is clean and bright with the private deck feet from the waters edge. A wonder spot to go swimming and snorkeling from. Inakura is a wonderful hostess and very helpful. We would surely be back.

    Derryn2018-06-09T00:00:00Z
  • A quiet and humble bungalow right on the waters edge! King size bed which was incredibly comfortable and the usual amenities you can expect at an accommodation. A bowel of local fruit is there to welcome you, as well as local flowers from the garden which lightly scents the bungalow. Regularly cleaned and suitable for either singles or couples. The beach is best at high tide as opposed to low tide (still swimmable at low tide). It's very private - I had the beach to myself for 90% of my stay. Recommend taking reef shoes and grabbing some goggles and a snorkel before you come. Location is right at the halfway mark of the island and handy to Wigmores which closes later than the main shopping centre in town. Overall, an awesome choice if you're looking at going to Rarotonga.

    Alex2018-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • We stay 3 nights in this little paradise. Take the breakfast on the deck in front of the beach was very amazing. We can enjoy the free kayaks in the lagoon. And the evening with the sound of little waves was very nice. Thank you Inakura for your helpfull :)

    Florent2017-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay here. The view is amazing and location is excellent. It is a bit rustic, but you can't beat the price. Loving played our host, as the owner was out of the country at the time of our visit. Loving took excellent care of us and always checked to see if we needed anything. I recommend this bungalow to anyone trying to travel on a budget.

    Sarah2017-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful cabin,wonderful view,wonderful host. We will recomend to our friends and we hope to return.

    Chris2017-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great little place. Clean, with everything you need. Inakura was away during our stay, but Loving was very warm and welcoming on arrival, but let us to ourselves during our stay, which is perfect. She even brought me a birthday gift which was above and beyond and very thoughtful. The back door opens right onto a patio which was shaded and private, and you can hear the water crash on the rocks just below at high tide. We slept with the patio door open at night - just make sure to grab some mosquito coils for your stay! The hosts are just across the street and they have a lovely dog who would willingly accompany us on beach walks - he sleeps just outside the front door and guards the place. He is very very sweet and we enjoyed his company and friendly wagging tail. It's in a great location, just between to the two main tourist areas of Muri Beach and Arorangi but it's definitely worth renting a scooter or car to not have to depend on the buses. The road out front of the property was a little loud in the morning as locals went to work and tourists on buggies went by, but it was just a minor inconvenience considering the other 23 hours of the day are solely the ocean sounds and roosters. We weren't impressed with our meal at Saltwater Cafe just across the street but it was good enough for quick coffees. For meals, the scooter trips elsewhere are worth it... And we cooked a few meals at home with the well-equipped kitchenette. Definitely have a dinner at Vaima! Would love to visit again.

  • Sadly the scariest experience we have ever had during a trip occurred here. Everyone we met including the caretaker said how safe cook island is. That most of the people don't lock their doors. Many don't even have keys. But we locked the front door always. The balcony to the bungalow fronts to water and the patio itself has no entry door except thru the bungalow. So one night when the breeze was nice we left the balcony door cracked. No one could see it especially with curtains drawn unless they were on the balcony itself. No direct access since it has no outside entrance. The parking area to the side has no lights so it is pitch black. We were asleep and at 1AM I stretched and my foot touched a man's forearm. I opened my eyes to see a dark figure on the end of the bed. He did not run off after I touched him. I screamed and my boyfriend leapt and chased out the man. He sped off on his scooter/motor bike. If I had not woken up, I may have been raped, we may have been hurt or worse killed...very scary. The man had targeted to attack us as we slept. We did not even hear him come in. We were scared and there was no phone in the bungalow to call for help. We sat lights on in terror till morning. I still get teary and hairs on my arm stand up thinking about this even now as I write this . It will haunt me for some time to come. The next day the caretaker told us to "get over it" and not to call the police and sadly would not call the owner for us . We instead were blamed for the attack and offered only a hostel as our alternative accommodation. Sadly the owner is not in the cook islands maybe she would have responded differently. We did insist to call the police who came, but we're still stuck another night there unable to sleep for fear the man would come back. Police are investigating. Thankfully with the help of the wonderful tourism office we were able to move to a safer location on the 3rd night. As a result of our incident the tourism board is working with the police to raise awareness to always be on your guard to protect your belongings and yourself and working with landlords to safeguard their rentals. The tourism office saved us. The owner did charge us for the night we were attacked and night after we were still stuck there with no safe place to move to yet. She only credited the two nights we didn't stay after we were moved. Said that was the best she could do. We thought she should have credited the additional night of the attack and night after we were attacked also since they were so horrific. The waterfront bungalow itself is basic, needs some updates, but...

    Nirvana is a finely appointed self contained bungalow situated on the Southern side of Rarotonga at Avaavaroa in the village of Vaimaanga. 200 mtrs from the most spectacular coastline on Raro. Probably the best kept secret in terms of location on the island.The Vaimaanga area is very quiet and has some of the cleanest , least populated white sand beaches on Rarotonga with great swimming ,snorkeling,surfing and kite surfing locations.Bush walking ,banana,pineapple and pawpaw plantations are on the doorstep. Nirvana is within walking distance to a supermarket cafes,takeaway and restaurants. The cross island track and Wigmores waterfall are a twenty minute walk or 5 minute drive away. Built specifically for couples wanting quality accommodation at an affordable price. Nirvana is owned and managed by seasoned travelers whom know what to expect from quality accommodation. The design and build has been inspired by Island life and alfresco living.Relax on the veranda or in the cottage feel the ocean breeze and hear the sound of waves breaking on the reef. Nirvana is quite simply second to none.
  • Super cute and private bungalow. No beach views, but it's only about a 3 minute walk to one. It has everything two people need to cook meals or just lounge comfortably and do nothing. We didn't know what to expect as far as WiFi and it turns out there's no WiFi (paid or otherwise) available on the property. We had to buy vouchers and find hotspots around the island, which there are plenty of. The bungalow is a bit darker than I expected except for the bathroom. We didn't meet Kristina, but we met Mark, who was a nice guy, full of tips. Had a great time!

    Nora2017-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Sehr schöner, ruhig gelegener Bungalow mit guter Ausstattung. Mehrere Strände und Lokale sind in gehweite, wir kommen gerne beim nächten mal wieder!

    Egon2017-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • We loved Nirvana Bungalow, it was perfect for what we wanted... Krissy was lovely too, and Raro is a great place for a holiday!

    Amy2018-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • Nirvana Bungalow was perfect for our stay, very clean & well equipped. We loved the peace & quiet of being away from the main road yet only a couple of minutes walk from the beach. Plenty to do nearby with amazing snorkelling, X island walk, wigmores waterfall, supermarket etc & only a short drive to Muri beach. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting a quiet peaceful spot.

    Chelsea2017-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • Such a cute place to stay and in a really nice spot! Krissy and Mark are really wonderful hosts who will really help you if needed but otherwise will leave you to explore the beautiful island of Rarotonga from Nirvana bungalow

    Floyd2016-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • Nirvana Bungalow was the perfect hideaway for us! Krissy was excellent with communication from booking right through to our arrival. The bungalow is absolutely perfect for individuals or couples who enjoy being amongst the beautiful mountains/trees and stunning tropical foliage backdrop of Rarotonga, and still only minutes away from the beach. Super convenient being close to bus stop, wigmores supermarket and muri beach! We recommend hiring bike or car with "Island car and bike rentals" located all around the island. Thank you, Krissy, for creating a cosy and clean space for us to enjoy on holiday!

    Mariah2018-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Quiet and Clean, great hosts... Highly recommend

    Scott2018-05-10T00:00:00Z
  • My partner and I LOVED Nirvana. It's everything you could want for a getaway in the islands - all year round. We visited in winter of Raro, which meant we had quite windy days and occasional storms or bad weather, but the private courtyard meant we could sit outside in this weather, read and enjoy the tropical view without getting wet. He LOVED it. A proper place to relax. The place has all you could need if you wanted to stay in and cook for yourself, it's only a walk from the supermarket, and not too far if you don't have wheels to get to Muri. Pleasant quiet beaches opposite the road, and a swimmable part not far either, maybe a 5 minute walk! Place was clean and Kristina was an absolutely amazing host, txting to check in on us and also helping us out with early morning check ins and taxi transfers. A note for those who are light sleepers to maybe bring earplugs - there are a bunch of local roosters and geese nearby that like to have a community noisy committee meeting most mornings around 6:30am! Then they waddle off elsewhere to continue haha. Aside from that, you'll only have a few geckos coming to visit you bug-wise :) Thank you again Kristina - can't wait until we're back again!

    Built in 1968, closer to the road and backing onto lush gardens, The Studio is short or long term rustic delight for the budget traveler. $90 per night / 7 night minimum. No children.
    The Studio is located near the main road and backs up onto lush gardens. Built in 1968, it is more of the rustic variety and well-suited for the independent & budget traveler. A two minute walk down the garden path takes you to the beach. Renovated and well kept, with two burner cooktop, fridge/freezer kitchenette, queen bed, own phone, fan and a great gas hot water shower, it is a delight to stay in either short or long term. Bed linen & towels (both bed and bath) are provided. There is an on site guest laundry, snorkeling gear and a BBQ. The Studio is $90 per night. Airport transfers can be arranged. Minimum seven night stay.
    We are located at the South end of Muri Beach. Standing on the beach in front of the property, to your left is a ten minute walk to the popular area of resorts, night market, cafes, car/bike/bicycle hire, Telecommunications hub, lagoon cruises etc. Head the same distance to your right and you come to the Raui (protected reserve) of Titikaveka, which is a great place to snorkle and explore the lagoon. There are also more cafes and places to explore down here too.
  • Great little house right in Muri, airport transfers were organised for us which made life easy. Both Gwen and Jojo provided great local tips along with fresh fruit, and snorkelling gear. Great value for money

    Jess2018-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • Gwen's studio is great value and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The studio was very clean with plenty of linens and both bath and beach towels provided. Gwen also goes the extra yards with provision of snorkelling gear and reef shoes. The location is also good and Gwen gave us lots of recommendations. The garden setting is lovely (Website hidden by Airbnb)

    Helen2018-08-17T00:00:00Z

    Vashti2017-03-30T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay in the Studio was perfect! Great little kitchenette if you dont feel like eating out and the Studio was equipped with all we needed for a week in paradise. Located just a 5/10 min walk from the main drag of Muri, meant that our morning coffee was just a walk away as well as plenty of breakie/lunch options and small grocery stores for bits and bobs you may need. Being located just out of the main Muri strip meant that we could escape the touristy hustle and bustle but still have this accesible. With direct access to the stunning Muri Lagoon, we were able to swim and snorkel right out the front which was perfect! Gwen was absolutely lovely and spoilt us with fresh produce from her impressive garden- such a treat! We loved having the company of her dog Zoe and the three cats- really made it feel like a home away from home!

    Lily2017-07-04T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place close to beautiful Muri Lagoon, shops, rental places and cafes. We were 1 min walk to the beach - wow. Gwen is an incredible host and an amazing human. We really loved meeting her and getting local tips. A very special moment for us was waking up after a late flight and having JoJo (Gwen's helping hand around the property) show us how to open fresh coconuts. We loves the island it's people, nature and all the pets! Hope we can come back again soon.

    Mariya2018-05-30T00:00:00Z
  • The Studio is the perfect spot for anyone wanting to stay in one of the most beautiful spots. A quick stroll through Gwen’s garden and you’ll arrive at the most stunning beach. The Studio itself is clean, has everything you need and is totally charming in its look and feel. Gwen is a wonderful host who leaves you be but is happy to help whenever with whatever! Muri is the ideal location and The Studio is a 10min walk into the centre of Muri - right by the night markets, lagoon cruises and other activities and wonderful places to eat. Highly recommended!

    Brand New Private 1 bedroom Holiday Home with Pool
    We are situated on the Western Sunset coast of Rarotonga. The beach is a 8 min walk from the Retreat perfect to watch the sunset every evening.  The bus stop is a 7min walk away..We have a handful of restaurants in the village 7 mins drive to most of them, We have a few Village stores close by which is open from 6am- 9pm daily and is about a 10 minute walk to the nearest store.  The best Fish and chips shop is literally down our drive way and another 250 mtrs away is the popular Beluga Cafe..The Golf course is a 10min drive from the retreat...there is a Dive Shop in the village also  if you'd like to give scuba diving a try.
  • Wow where do we begin?! You MUST stay here!! It is absolutely FANTASTIC!!! Fiona and Turori are simply wonderful hosts and the Honey Rose Retreat is easily the best accommodation in Rarotonga! We adored staying there. My partner and I are clean freaks and have very high standards when it comes to cleanliness and the Honey Rose Retreat exceeded all of our expectations! Fiona made our check in seamless, we felt at home from the moment we arrived. She is an incredibly thoughtful and caring host who goes out of her busy way to ensure you’re fully looked after. Hospitality is in her nature. The home is in a fabulous location, minutes from the bus on the island, cafes, restaurants and more. It had everything we needed and the pool was so divine! We truly felt sorry for all those who stayed at resorts in rarotonga, they don’t even come close to this place! You simply cannot beat the Honey Rose Retreat! It’s perfect in every way and we will be recommending it to everyone! We cannot wait to return and hope there’s some availability for us to book here again - as it’s so popular! Thank You Fiona, you made our holiday so special and we are so glad we stayed at the Honey Rose Retreat.

    Claudia2018-05-25T00:00:00Z
  • You will not regret staying here! The home is perfect for a couple and the location is very private. Small walk to shops, or ride to nearest restaurants, scooter hire and transport. Located on the sunset coast- fish and chips on the beach is perfect! While the house is on the inner road it remains a hidden gem and locals are very friendly! Lastly, hosts are more than welcoming and very helpful! Defiantly recommend.

    Nick 2018-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Modern, private and just as you see in the pictures, great place with all amenities- highly recommend

    Bobbie2018-03-18T00:00:00Z

    David2018-05-30T00:00:00Z
  • Fiona and Tuori are such lovely people who were really accommodating and fantastic in keeping in contact with us before we arrived in Rarotonga and made us feel really welcome once we arrived in Rarotonga. Lovely family, lovely place, lovely Island and lovely experience all around.

    Laura2018-04-06T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Fiona place. It is so Nice and the pool was great. Had everything we needed and was really clean. Was in a nice local area and out of the touristy area. Was so nice to have a pool to come home to after the beach or a hike. The place was great!!

    Lauren2018-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice and quiet (Website hidden by Airbnb) get to the supermarket and restaurants you will need a car or a bike. When you want to have a party place you should look for an other place. Fiona are very kind and it was a pleasure to stay at the Honey Retreat...

    Walking distance to the Rarotongan Beach Resort & Spa and Lagoon Breeze Villas, restaurants, bars, superette and Dive Centre. 250 metres walk from the best snorkelling beach on the island.
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Lynettes and Grants paradise escape. Our intimate unit had everything we needed and all amenities ticked the boxes. We highly recommend paradise escape for it's value for money, location and cleanliness. Thank you Lynette and Grant for your welcoming hospitality.

    Rose2018-07-14T00:00:00Z

    Sarah2017-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • Lynette and Grant were wonderful hosts. Always considerate and thoughtful. Very nice dog, Idaho, as well. Excellent location and the unit has everything you need. Snorkeling was excellent. Highly recommended.

    Arthur2017-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Aroa marine reserve is 5-10 minutes to walk from this accommodation. Snorkeling here was amazing! Honestly, I saw more fish by snorkeling than scuba diving. The dive centre and car rental place also within 5mins walk from the palce and you can walk to the supermarket as well (10-15mins walk). It's also close to minigolf Cocoputt and it has nice buffet dinner with live music on Sunday. Muri beach where has all the nice eateries, is abit far from here though (about 20mins by driving). Lynette's place was nice, comfortable and had a thoughtful touch.

  • Paradise Escape was awesome! The location is great, I could walk to the beach and in minutes be swimming. Nice size room, but the hosts were what made this place!! Lynette and Grant are a very warm couple who will go above and beyond for their guests! They gave us inside local knowledge and showed is all the good spots. Thanks guys, we will be back - Amber & Ron

    Amber2017-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • Booked the place for business. Lynette has been helpful and has assisted us in many ways. Great help !

    Simon2017-06-11T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at lynette's place was a really good experience, the location is great if you want to be away from the busier areas of the island and be close to a lovely snorkeling beach! It was just what I was looking for as I wanted to get away and really relax. The apartment was clean with plenty of clean towels etc. I would stay again however, I did notice a review prior to my stay was more negative. I would say do read the listing description carefully and look at the pictures/map to make sure you know what you are booking. I had a great time and Lynette was very helpful with helping me organize check in (due to my late fight arrival and airline issues). I would recommend transport either a car or scooter to explore the island a bit too! I would stay here again.

  • Excellent rapport qualité prix, le meilleur sur 3 airbnb occupés à Rarotonga. Hôtes prévenants, disponibles et chaleureux. Très bien placé pour snorkeling. Rien a voir avec le violent commentaire negatif déposé par un précédent locataire de juillet 2017

  • Had the most wonderful stay at Lukuleah, thank you so much for having us. Everything was just perfect and the view was outstanding!

    Lucy2016-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Philip and Lilibeth are amazing hosts. They stayed up until after midnight to welcome us to Lukuleah, gave us loads of (yummy) fruit from their garden and kept making sure we had all we needed. We also enjoyed a few very interesting chats with Philip (Website hidden by Airbnb) The house was as described and very clean. It's right on the beach! The lower deck was great for having breakfast or just escaping the midday sun, the upper deck offers some amazing views of the lagoon as well as the stars (Website hidden by Airbnb) There's a great bar/restaurant next door and a few other places in the neighbourhood so if you don't want to cook, you don't have to go too far to get fed. The bus stops right outside, too (Website hidden by Airbnb) We sincerely hope we will be able to come to Lukuleah again one day, it's the perfect place for a proper "away from it all" holiday.

    Jana2018-04-23T00:00:00Z
  • This little house is right on the beach,which is perfect for swimming and snorkelling.The bed is very comfortable and everything you need is provided ensuring that you want for nothing and just concentrate on the important things like relaxing on the beach or exploring the island by (Website hidden by Airbnb) is close to the bus stop and lots of lovely restaurants are nearby( nothing is a very far in Rarotonga )The hosts Philip and Lilibeth are on site and are just lovely people happy to help out with anything that you may need.We had a great week and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place.

    Brendan2017-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • Great accomodations right on the beach. Clean and spacious for a family of 3. Hosts are really helpful and friendly while also respecting your privacy and providing a relaxing vacation spot. Made us and our daughter feel welcome to the island and had lots of tips for what to do and share some local knowledge. Close to bus and a few little stores to pick up basics within walking distance. Snorkelling at beach was great at high tide.

    Janet2018-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Philip's house and his hospitality were amazing! As soon as we arrived, he was there to personally greet us and arranged to have food stocked in the fridge for our first day. The house is beatifully situated on the sunset side of the island - literally steps away from beach. The house itself is very beautiful and we could really tell that Philip takes pride in its design and maintenance (he named it after his daughter - so you can tell he put his heart into it). Philip was also available to provide us tips about the island and also, because he lives close by, gave us a feeling of extra security.

    Ben And Jamie2018-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Lilibeth and Philip are fantastic hosts. They arranged transport to and from the Airport for us and waited up for us to arrive on our first night. We had fresh fruit, milk and a whole pile of ice cubes in the freezer on arrival! Lilibeth and Philip were available to us anytime we needed help, including their dinner being interrupted when my friend was terrified of a lizard and locked herself out one night. Very helpful and shared knowledge of what to avoid and the best places to visit. The accommodation was perfect - right on the beach front and we spent most evenings on the deck when we were home. Safe swimming right out front - wear reef shoes in the water due to coral cuts and stone fish. Perfect spot to snorkel and cool off. Walking distance to great beachside restaurants and bars, the staff at Waterside are awesome. Castaway further down the beach do really good samosas and spring rolls. We hired a car but also used the bus to get around if we were going to drink. The night markets in Muri are worth a visit, great food and atmosphere. We went on Captain Tamas glass bottom boat which was a great day out, including snorkelling, entertaining hosts and a beach BBQ lunch. Highland Paradise cultural show was a fun night out also. Trader Jacks do great food and the sunset is amazing - try the Ika Mata (raw fish marinated in lime and coconut), it was devine. The sunrises and sunsets at the retreat were stunning - well worth getting up early and going to the top deck - we took heaps of photos. If you are looking for a relaxing place to stay away from the mainstream resorts look no further, go to sleep listening to the waves crashing over the reef, chickens wandering around and the odd friendly dog paying a visit - we only met Wendy once, she was busy visiting other tourists!

  • This place is a must see on Raro! It‘s gorgeous views, its exceptional atmosphere and especially the amazing hosts are simply awesome! We joined Philip and Lillibeth for five supercool nights with our two little children - and they literally took care of every single one of our needs. We‘ve been travelling this planet a lot - but Lukuleah Retreat is special in its perfection! The Lagoon, the terrace, the bbq-view, the comfy bed, the well equipped kitchen...we could go on much longer...if you‘re looking for a paradise-like island retreat with great hosts - look no further!

    Arorangi District, Острова Кука

    Are Renga Studio is located on the western side of Rarotonga - right on the beach. It has fabulous views of the ever changing lagoon and beautiful sunsets. Several restaurants are within easy walking distance along the beach. You will fall in love with Are Renga because of the location, the ambience and because the outdoor/indoor space is ideal to relax, unwind and get into "Island Time". Are Renga is a great place for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.
    This is a large studio unit - it has a deck that looks out to the lagoon and the ocean beyond, there is a shared cabanna on the beach which is the ideal place to enjoy and cold drink and view the fantastic sunsets. There is also a private garden seating area that is shaded through the day, the unit is well appointed with a double shower, king bed and cooking facilities.
    Are Renga Studio is located in the village of Arorangi and is 6 kms from the international airport and 8kms from the main town of Avarua. We are on the western side of the island and as such we get to see the beautiful sunsets. Nearby (easy walking distance) there are a number of good restaurants - ranging from fine dining to bistro style, two churchs are located nearby (Catholic & CICC), and snorkeling beaches are easily accessible.
  • Lita and Linz were wonderful hosts. Very friendly and accommodating. The studio is in a wonderful location, with beautiful beach just steps away and easy access to some great restaurants via a short walk down the beach. Highly recommended

    Joel2017-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay, amazing hosts and nothing but beautiful memories! We arrived as guests and left as family. Thank you so much to cathy and kev for the 5 star hospitality, going the extra mile and pulling off our very special day! Great location! Fantastic facilities, close to town, dairies, gas stations, churches and laundromats. Beautiful beach and lagoon right on the property for use and spectacular sunset views. Cathy and kev have so much knowledge to share and are happy to answer any questions or queries so approachable and friendly. From the moment we arrived we felt like close family members and was hard to leave. Raro will forever be a special place to us and i can not rate our beautiful hosts enough. We will be back! And if We dont stay here we will definetly visit. The Hemaras xx

    Hazel2017-06-10T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect better than the pictures Make sure you go to waterline for dinner

    Louise2017-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • Are Renga is not wrong, they are literally right on the beach! The place was absolutely beautiful, on a stunning stretch of beach on the west side of the island and within walking distance to a number of great bars and restaurants. The house was very neat and tidy, very comfortable, and we had a great time staying there for four nights. Easy check in, fantastic hosts, and Kev even gave us a lift to the airport when we left which was very kind. Would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone else, it was perfect for the two of us. Thank you a bunch, can't wait to come back!

    Harry2018-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • A fantastic place. Will be back. Recommend , five star all the way

    Jenny2017-05-18T00:00:00Z
  • Cute and comfy little studio in convenient location. Hosts were lovely. Just be aware that the photo is of the cabana on the beach and not of the studio which is a couple of minutes walk away. You can still see the water from the studio but it's not actually beachfront.

  • If you want to stay at a place in Rarotonga where you're hosts are welcoming and friendly, Are Reinga is the place to stay. Cathy and Kev are awesome hosts and their b n b is in a great location. Town is only a five minute drive away and make sure you are there for the markets on Saturday morning. We will be planning our next stay with Cathy and Kev, we wouldn't want to stay anywhere else.

    Avarua District, Острова Кука

    My home is only a 5 -6 minute drive to downtown Avarua; major shopping, famous Punanga Nui Market, large grocery stores, coffee bars, take-outs, dining and the museum. The beach is accessible across the road and public transport at the driveway. Guests love that my home is conveniently located between town and the stunning Muri beaches, Muri Evening Market and fantastic snorkeling spots. Great for solo adventurers and business travelers.
    This sleeping unit is separated from the house by a covered breezeway with convenient access to a modern styled bathroom (rarely shared) and, an outdoor common kitchen.
    The home is situated beside the main road which circles the island. The neighborhood is a quiet residential area with a nearby church, beach, good restaurants, bars and convenient stores.
  • Lydia is a wonderful host. She helped to maximize what I was seeking for my holiday experience. We shared many good times together with Mama'a Puna and Ura, and her friends Wendy and Ana. Everyone was soooo nice!! As a solo traveler, for a few more dollars than 'backpackers' accommodation, I got a much nicer place (great bed/bathroom/good location), very warm and entertaining people to socialize with and, a more authentic Maori experience. Lydia, your the best! (P.S. travelers; get used to the morning roosters, they're everywhere)

    Ernie2017-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • The room was okay considering the rate. Could use a little paint and deodorizer due to humidity. However,.. The cultural experience that Lydia's mom provided was wonderful! I was not able to meet Lydia due to a family emergency but the time I spent with her 70-ish year old mother was priceless. We conversed every day I was there. She has such a kind soul and kindred spirit. She and I shared many values, beliefs and cultural stories that will stick with me for the rest of my life. She was such a treat to be around and I can only hope that one day, our paths cross again. She will always hold a special place in my heart! Thank you my friend!

    Stephanie2017-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • Good.Friendly.Close to the beach.Little bit far supermarket.But we can get on a bus everywhere.

    Kazu2017-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Lydia's super host status is well deserved! I was made to feel so welcome and really enjoyed my stay.

    Susie2018-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay!!

    Alen2018-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • Lydia and her mother are beautiful hosts. Definitely recommend staying at her beautiful home. Loved the room I slept in and the bed worked for me. If you want to meet the people of the land then this is a great opportunity.

    Recenia2017-04-02T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you Lydia for being so welcoming during my stay with you and your beautiful family! I’ve only just returned home and just gathered the energy to reflect on my stay with you! Thank you to your mother also for being great company most days; I very much enjoyed her stories and her suggestions on activities and things to do! Will definitely be returning! Also the beach behind the environment building is beautiful!

    Ehden2018-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • Lydia's home is lovely! With a big back garden and outdoor kitchen and dining area, it was lovely to eat breakfast outside in the warm sunshine. Town is only a 20 min walk, or the bus stops right outside the house on the main road and it takes you right around the island. I slept like a log in the very comfortable bed!!! Definitely recommend staying here!!

    If you're looking for a private and relaxing place to stay, just minutes from the beach, restaurants, activities and attractions then this is it! A cosy and modern studio, it has everything you need and is centrally located in popular Muri beach.
    One bedroom self-contained studio apartment which comes with a separate bathroom, small kitchen/lounge area and laundry. The kitchen is equipped with a gas stove, fridge with freezer, toaster, jug, cutlery, utensils, dining table and chairs. The balcony also has outdoor furniture for dining. A 3-minute walk from the beach which is located across the road, the studio is accessible to most things in Rarotonga and close to an internet cafe, local deli, restaurants as well as a number of shops and rental car and bike hire places. It is also 5 minutes from some of the best activities and attractions and the bus stop is right outside! *Please note - this is not a room but your very own studio apartment/flat so we do not provide breakfast as it is self contained. You have your own bathroom, bedroom, and kitchen facilities which are all separate. Also internet is a wifi hotspot which requires a prepaid card that can be purchased from a local store down the road.
    Muri is one of the most popular destinations in the Cook Islands. It is centrally located to most things in Rarotonga and offers a wide variety of activities and tourist attractions, as well as restaurants and cafes.
  • Simple bungalow type accommodation with a peaceful and private rear decked area amongst banana trees. Kitchen facilities are basic. Five minutes walk to Muri beach - which is great for sunrise walks - but due to poor water quality at Muri beach we swam elsewhere, in particular Aroa (10km - 15mins drive). Internet is a paid-for hotspot connection that can be easily subscribed to via the browser or by buying credit codes in local shops. Communication with Sian was excellent.

    Nicholas2017-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Sian was'nt there when I was in the apartment, but Tracy was taking care about us. When we needed anything she was there to help us out! She was great. The apartment was nice and clean, with a laundry and many shops nearby. Internet was good but quite expensive. Muri beach which is close to the apartment is not the nicest beach of the island I think, but there are buses and scooter rentals availible. I would absolutly recommend to stay there!

    Sabrina2014-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed nine weeks in Sian's Bungalow and had a really good time. The bungalow and furniture is of basic standard but very clean and totally fine as you spend most of the time outside anyway. It's located in Muri beach which is the best area on the island in my opinion. Walking distance to the beach is only a couple of minutes. A really nice café is only 30 meter away where I spent my mornings. In the bungalow you have a really good wifi connection which is quite rare on the Island. (Like everywhere else on the island internet is not free and you have to buy a voucher.) Sian was really friendly and helped me in the beginning to settle on the Island. I will definitely come back to lovely Rarotonga and would like to stay in Sian's Bungalow again if available.

    Anja-Kristina2014-03-29T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed three nights in the lovely studio which is very well located near Muri beach (2 min walk), the great LBV coffeshop or the nightmarket. Most Hotels at Muri Beach are expensive therefore the studio is a really good deal! There's a kitchen to use and beachtowels and snorkels were also provided.

    Andrea2017-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • The studio was in a great location and had nice ambience. I loved being able to pick my own bananas for breakfast every morning, and it was within a couple of minutes walk from the beach, LBV cafe and anything else I wanted. I really liked having all the chickens hanging around in the bush and on the front lawn - it was like having my own David Attenborough show while I drank my coffee on the deck. The decor was lovely, the bed was comfortable, the shower was good, and I loved the kitchen. I particularly liked the insect screens on all the windows and ranch slider because it meant I could stay cool without worrying about mosquitoes. Sian was welcoming and helpful. I rang twice and she responded immediately. I'll be coming back. It was my kind of place.

    Kathy2016-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Sian met us at the house and showed us around. A wonderful host! The property is really well located in Muri and very clean and tidy.

    Toni2015-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed one week at Sian's studio which was exactly looking like shown on the pictures. The rooms were simply equipped but had everything we needed. Beside the cottage there are banana and palm trees, which looked very lovely. Also a few chickens came every morning to say "hello" :-) It's just a few minutes walking to the awesome beach and lagoon. Our arrival time was late at night / early in the morning, but the keys were reliably left for us on a safe place. Sian was very helpful and flexible when we had to change our itinerary. The communication with her was very smooth and uncomplicated. We would have been very happy to meet Sian, but unfortunately she was not there at this time. Tracey was looking after us and was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the stay and recommend this place.

    Ngatangiia District, Острова Кука

    Set off the back road in Vaimaanga Casa del sol is true to its name – house in the sun. Two tastefully appointed 3 bedroom villas offer spacious open plan (al fresco) living and two en suite bathrooms. Each villa can sleep up to 7 adults. The two Villas share a pool which is set in beautifully landscaped gardens. The property is located 400m from some of the best beaches and snorkeling spots in Rarotonga, and boasts beautiful views of the mountains.
    BEDROOMS The first bedroom offers a King size bed with a private en suite bathroom. The bathroom is fully tiled and leads onto a private outdoor shower, perfect for a cool down under the stars on a warm tropical night! An open shower with rain shower head compliments custom designed vanities which offer perfect storage for your personals – no need to unpack your vanity! The second bedroom offers a king size bed and shares a bathroom with the bunk room. This is the perfect configuration for a family with children allowing parents some privacy, as the bathroom separates this bedroom from the bunk room, while having the family together. The bathroom features a free standing bath tub with an over bath rain shower, set beside a large window. The bunk room is dominated by a custom made bunk bed with a queen size lower bed and king single upper – set horizontally to minimise imposing on the lower bed. All 3 bedrooms are fitting with classic built in wardrobes which offer ample hanging and drawer storage space as well as a handy bench for your suitcase … if you think unpacking is a waste of your precious time in paradise! Most bedrooms are fitted with overhead fans and mosquito screening over windows. We use only 100% cotton towels and bed linen as well as luxury full size pillows. All our beds are from the Sleepyhead Elegance plush range to ensure your nights are as fun as your days. Most beds also offer the option of being split into singles should you require. KITCHEN AND LIVING The bedrooms all open onto a large covered deck which is central to the villa. At the heart of the living area is a sturdy 8 seater dining table as well as a relaxing L shaped outdoor couch over looking the pool and garden. The deck is fitted with ceiling fans and appropriate lighting to make the most of the warm tropical nights. A smaller indoor living area offers a TV with more comfortable seating which leads off the kitchen. The kitchen is fully equipped with good quality wares and as well as the standard oven, gas hob, fridge, microwave and includes a dishwasher and other small appliances. We understand the importance of having great quality utensils and appliances when self catering and have selected these to make the most of your home away from home.
    LOCATION 400m walking distance to arguably best beaches on south west side of Rarotonga. Café, restaurants, spa and superette are all within walking distance. Avarua town center is 16km away.
  • Casa del Sol is amazing. The accommodation is luxurious, every detail has been thought of to make your stay tranquil and relaxing. It’s family friendly and has plenty for kids to do including playground and swimming pool. Highlights include the tropical gardens, well appointed indoor and outdoor rooms and luxe linen. Marcelle, Deon and family were delightful hosts super welcoming and helpful. Rarotonga’s finest. Highly recommended.

    Jess2018-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • Marcelle & Deon have done an amazing job creating a beautiful space to holiday in, especially if you have kids! The place is immaculate and the pool a welcome respite from the warmth. You couldn’t ask for more friendly hosts who make you feel so welcome but also give you plenty of space. We will be back!

    Tui2018-04-16T00:00:00Z
  • Great place ! Wonderful people . Our son loved it with the play ground and pool. Also the children living on the property. Awesome place for families to chill out

    Ayla2018-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you can't be said enough for being such wonderful hosts. We had the best family holiday and we really appreciated all your kindness, help, time and for being so accomodating. It was all the little things you did that made it such a special and relaxing time for us. We were sad to leave and will definetly be back!! X

    Ame2018-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • These guys go that extra mile! A family friendly, stunning environment nestled in the trees! We've stayed at 5 star properties and this by far, exceeded our expectations. The large all season outdoor setting provides a haven for relaxation and play. We felt so comfortable here, a home away from home. Marcelle and Deon went out of there way to provide us with little extras, that certainly didn't go unnoticed! A child friendly swimming pool, put us at ease having a lively toddler running around. A perfect sized shallow section provided him with certainty and he actually became very confident, as did other children during their stay. I cannot fault the property - its spotlessly clean We are already dreaming of our next visit and hope to stay in touch with the family between times. I would imagine this property will soon be in high demand. Thanks guys! X

    Brooke 2017-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • Caste de Sol What a beautiful place to come too. Our hosts made us very welcome when we arrived, & were happy to help us in any way. This was a home from home for us. The verandah is where you live during your time here. The beds were better than what I have at home (and I have a good bed at home). The pool is just what any holiday wants. We had the place to ourselves so swimming anytime was not a problem. Sun, pool, and a BBQ and the sea down the road made a great holiday spot. It does help to hire a car we did. Would love to come back and will one day, Dion and Marcella are great hosts.

    Helen2017-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay. What Deon has done to the property is amazing. You wont find any other place around the island quite like this. Would highly recommend to all travellers

Would love to stay again in the future!

  • Lovely place, with outstanding hosts who embody the Kia Orana spirit. Loved the fresh papaya that we could just pick directly off the trees. The included pushbikes are a great bonus to get around the island. When we are on Rarotonga again, we will definitely be staying at Inave Oasis.

  • What a fantastic place to stay!!! The hosts were very welcoming and accommodating. The place was sparkling clean and very comfortable. We had everything we needed from a bbq, board games for those rainy days to fully equipped kitchen to cook meals. The bed was very comfy and the towels were super soft. I felt like we got a better experience then we would get in a hotel. You even get your own private plunge pool! I mean it can’t get any better than this!!! The hosts also provided bikes for us to get around, which is very helpful when you’re new to the area. The location is walking distance to restaurants, bars, scooter and car hire places and the beach. We had such a great stay. Thank you so much Talei and Sam! I highly recommend these hosts and this gorgeous place to everyone :)

    Elena2017-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing stay at Sam & Talei. Before I arrived I already had contact with Talei about early check-in and she helped me with everything I needed. It was clean, it looked amazing! I love the interior design. Really it’s all you need when you start your holiday in Rarotonga! Thank you again Sam & Talei :)

  • We are regular airbnb users in Australia, but this is the first time we have used the service overseas. Whilst slightly apprehensive for this reason, we were immediately put at ease as a result of Talei and Sam amazing communication before the visit. This continued throughout our stay at their beautiful little hideaway. Whilst living next door, they completely respected our privacy yet were at hand if required to offer advice and tips. Our late arrival caused us worry for lack of supplies. Again, the guys outdid themselves, the studio was exceptionally well equipped with a whole heap of foods added to help us out! The little touches made us feel so welcome! The property itself is so underrated. It's a studio styled villa with private deck, pool and gardens with fruit trees at your disposal! Ideal for a couple and beats any hotel room. It allows you to feel the real village life with the luxury of home from home comforts. Off the beaten track but still close to amenities. Also located in walking distance of a nice stretch of the beach. We have stayed in many airbnb properties and this one is definitely up there with the best! Thanks guys for all your help, you made our experience exactly how we like it!!

    Garry2018-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • This spot is amazing!! So relaxing and beautiful. Sam and talei were so kind and their hospitality went above and beyond. We loved it here!!

    Laura2018-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Where to start Inave Oasis this was such a perfect little place for me and my partner to getaway. It's a home away from home, Felt so comfortable staying here and going home knowing we had our own privacy made us feel like we were locals. This place being our first airbnb experience and first timers in The beautiful Rarotonga it was perfect our expectations are so high now Sam & Talei are such a beautiful couple made us feel so welcomed going above and beyond for anything we needed. We can't express enough how awesome this place was for us we will definitely be back.

    Agnes2017-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • Sam and Talei couldn’t have been more sweet, attentive and hospitable. The accommodations are exactly as pictured and actually exceeded our expectations. Do be advised that most businesses close at 4pm so you’ll need to get about your business (currency exchange, vehicle rentals, bluesky WiFi or SIM card purchases, etc.) a touch earlier than expected. Upon check in, you are greeted with a beautiful spread of fruit grown and harvested by Sam. You’ll also have filtered water and other cooking supplies. They don’t leave a stone unturned as far as preparing for your stay. A truly beautiful CI family. Kia Orana! Enjoy!

    My place is close to Muri Beach, Avana Passage, The Coffee House, Moorings cafe, restaurants and dining, the beach, public transport, family-friendly activities. You’ll love my place because the studio is located on the sunrise coast with the beach at your doorstep, the neighborhood, the comfy bed, the light, the kitchen. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.
    Al fresco seating and open air kitchen area with private access to studio entrance and parking as well as private walkway onto beach.
    The beach is right at your doorstep, whilst it is great for walking and exploring it is rocky and not deep enough for swimming. Muri lagoon which is three kilometers down the road is great for swimming and all water sports. You can hire paddle boards and kayaks, a sail boat from the Sailing Club. There are lots of cafes and restaurants in the Muri Beach area.
  • It was such a relaxing stay! Totally recommend this place if you want to turn off for a couple of days and enjoy the serenity of the whole vibe of the ocean and the island life. Sunrises are a must!!! Beach is not swimmable but I was aware of this before hand; beautiful beaches 15 minutes away anyways. Would have loved to have stayed a couple of extra days! PS: Check out the stars at night, the background noise of the waves really enhances the experience :)

    Daniel2017-04-20T00:00:00Z
  • Krick's place is lovely! The accommodations are perfect for a solo traveler or couple. A little bungalo "annex" to a relatively new, modern home right on the "wild coast" of Rarotonga. Their home is very well designed and the bungalow fits right into the scheme. A very comfortable bed, bedroom and bathroom, along with an outdoor patio and kitchen area that are for the Abnb guests. And essentially you have a private beach just a stone's throw from the bungalow. The beach has sand to lay on but You can wade in the water as the water has a rocky reef character - making it beautiful and interesting. You are only about 10 minutes drive to the main town and 5 minutes from Muri beach to the south, where there and beyond there are many quiet, sandy beach coves that are very swimmable. You are on the sunrise side of the island, so sunrise is beautiful. But sunsets are equally beautiful. Add a g&t to the mix and life hardly gets any sweeter. Krik and Greg are very plugged into the island, so are full of insights, recommendations and help. The Abnb description is accurate. And I could not recommend staying with Krick and Greg more highly. Great value!!

    Mitchell2017-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for a place in silent to enjoy privavcy on Rarotonga, this is the place. You can see the sunrise out of your bed. Lovely host.

    daniel2017-04-05T00:00:00Z
  • This little studio is perfect for couples who want privacy. It's a great location and the sunrises are worth getting up for! Greg is a fabulous host and we plan to come back!

    Nikki2018-08-01T00:00:00Z
  • The home is beautiful and the view is perfect. I really enjoyed myself at Kricks home. She is a lovely host and the space was exactly what I needed on vacation.

    Ari2017-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Second time holidaying in Rarotonga and this time was the best! We found Krick's studio pure luxury, beautiful linens, soaps & decor is comparable to a 5 star hotel combined with outdoor kitchen and living, right on the coasts edge, amazing sunsets and marine life right on your doorstep and when it got just too tropical we slipped into the pool to cool off...living the dream!

    Amanda & Reston2017-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Can't say enough good things about this place. The location is perfect as you're close to Muri and the main town. The hosts are lovely and everything was perfect when I arrived. If you're looking to getaway, this is the place to stay. Thanks so much Krick and Greg, can't wait to come back! :)

    Ellie2017-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Couldn’t of asked for a better place to stay on the island! Lovely space with a relaxed atmosphere and basically a private beach just meters away! It was just a 40m walk from Muri but I would recommend anyone staying on the island to rent a scooter/ car to get around! Krick and Greg where the perfect hosts, I’d recommend their place to anyone looking for a more homely stay in raro!

    Sharnyta's Guesthouse is located in just the right spot so you can enjoy the local way of life and the bustle of Avarua town which is only a five minute stroll away. A modern, spacious home perfect for a family of four wanting to truly relax, soak up the rays and explore the island. Mountain-side views, a ten minute walk to the beach. Best of all, our hosts are more than happy to recommend island experiences and activities throughout your stay.
    There are two double rooms with a double bed in each and plenty of closet space to unpack all your holiday outfits into. An open-plan living area with couches in the lounge, a TV when you feel like staying indoors and a kitchen and dining area to cook any local goods you collect at the markets. Gas top stove Tank water Fridge TV Garden and courtyard Car port Outdoor washing line
    We are a five minute walk from Avarua Town which is the main township in Rarotonga, here you will get to explore the markets, access supermarkets and shops, have a meal out at a cafe or bar and take advantage of the all day happy hour at any of the waterfront bars/clubs.
  • John and his wife Nono. Are the most loveliest hosts you will meet on the island. From the moment I contacted them about their accomodation, they were prompt in their replies, and asked if I needed anymore information. Day one they meet us at arrival to the sunny islands. With flower necklaces. Dropped us to our accomodation which was truly lovely, a slice of paradise. It was surrounded by mango trees, star fruit, pawpaw, coconuts. And just outside your kitchen window is the sweet smelling tiare maori which all the locals adorn themselves with. You are located at the back off the main road for privacy, but being in avatiu, your right in town. Which is only a 5 min walk away. John and Nono are always helpful. They advised us if we needed anything, they were always contactable. Staying in John and Nono’s was a joy, especially since this was my first time using Airbnb overseas before. They made us feel welcomed but truly part of the family. John and Nono hosts a few things at their home which they invited us to participate in. So if your looking for that authentic island experience, to stay in a clean home in the heart of town with the most amazing hosts you’ll ever meet come and try this accomodation. You won’t regret it.

    Trey2018-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at John and Nono's place is an experience that will make your trip to Rarotonga a unique memory. Starting with a warm welcome they will not only show you their culture but let you be part of it. An experience that we don't want to have missed. You'll have your own house to yourself surrounded by native plants, animals, and fruits that you can pick in the morning for a healthy and delicious breakfast. And all of that in walking distance to town, market, bus stop and the famous cross-island walk. We are glad that we have met John and Nono and their "all-inclusive" island experience and we hope to be back soon.

    Ilaria2018-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • John and Nono are were perfect owners always available and very kind. The house is beautiful and very large and the photos do not make it really a haven of peace. five star hotel. recommended for everyone.kia orana

    Mattia2018-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • John and his lovely wife will very much enhance your stay in Rarotonga. They were warm welcoming and very attentive to making our stay as comfortable as possible. The house is well kept and very clean. The outdoor grounds are beautiful and lush. The location is in the heart of the main town so a lot of your needs like grocery stores, restaurants, public transport, activity bookings and the markets will be within walking distance. And those roosters that wake you up before the sun even rises you will start to miss as your trip is coming to an end. LOL! Highly recommended for anyone looking for a great priced place that is central.

    Sharon2018-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • John and Nono are two of the kindest people you will ever meet. We stayed for a whole month and were delighted. They picked us up from the airport and gave us a small tour of the town so that we were not lost! You really do get the whole building/house to yourself including 2 double bedrooms. The accommodation is very clean, with amenities present (flowers/soap/kitchen paper etc). They live only 30-45 seconds walk away which is perfect. You can be in town within about 5 minutes walk. They host one of the three food courses at the "Dinners for Progress" programme, whereby other tourists get to experience a 3 course meal at 3 different houses in one evening - and you can join in if you wish. They are great for local tips & knowledge and more than willing to answer any questions you have. I can, hand on heart, say this place is amazing. You won't regret it.

    Richard2018-05-03T00:00:00Z
  • Staying with John and Nono was a complete delight from day one. They picked us up at the airport and showed us around town even though they did not have to. They also gave us rides at other times when we had to go places before we got our own transport, really nice of them. We also had a lot of fun with them learning about them, their unique culture and their family. Every monday and wednesday we would have dinner with them and on sundays we would have lunch and dinner with the whole family and learn/watch how they cook certain things in their own unique way. In the end it really felt like being home because they are such sweet, open and nice people. We couldn’t have lived a better place on Rarotonga, and on top of that the guesthouse was really a perfect place to be, like a real home. The price is very good aswell and the location is pretty much perfect with the city just next door but without being too close. The best airbnb place I have ever been, you completely forget that it is a airbnb place because you become a part of the family. Meituki/atawai

    Mads2018-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • John and NorNor have the best value Air BNB. It is located close to town, close to the start of the across island walk and close to the markets. The house is very spacious and offers you everything you need. Kitchen is full equip making eating in nice and simple. Highly recommend.

    Jess2018-06-05T00:00:00Z
  • great to experience real Cook island hospitality with the best hosts in a village like setting, walking distance to town, this setting does come with noise from dogs and roosters just bring earplugs if you like sleeping in

    Mata Manea is a modern, spacious open-plan living holiday home, large deck. Vaimaanga Titikaveka Rarotonga. 5 km from the best beaches on the island Rural setting, mountain views. Peaceful tranquil Secluded beach 2 minute walk across road Fully equipped kitchen dining area. Linen & BBQ are provided Wifi hotspot, data packages to purchase Rarotonga International Airport, 12 km away. 3 minute drive to local supermarket Great choice swimming, snorkeling, beach, bush walks
  • We had a wonderful week long stay here at Mata Manea! As two couples it was perfect for us! The house is beautiful! The French doors provided a nice airflow and kept the place nice and cool! The kitchen, deck and BBQ were also idea for us as we did a lot of cooking there instead of eating out all of the time. The beach was just a 5 minute walk away which we loved! Big thank you to Tania and Bianca for making our stay perfect!!

    Laura2017-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful views from the back deck. Kitchen is well equipped for the cook. Other amenities are the basics, oil salt and pepper. Peaceful. Probably one of the best nights sleep you'll have in the cook islands.

    Megan2018-06-16T00:00:00Z
  • Mata Manea is a great location if you want a slightly different Rarotonga experience to the usual beach bungalows. The house is modern and well stocked with everything you would need. The mountain views are beautiful and the back deck with the BBQ and large table is great for evening entertaining. You definitely need a vehicle to stay there because most things you want to do are at least a 5-10 minute drive away and local restaurant pickup services don't know where to go. Tania and Bianca are very responsive and helpful. Thanks!

    Tim2018-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great property, and uniquely secluded compared to just about anywhere else you could stay on the island. Check-in was smooth, and property manager was responsive. Found the place clean and with modern facilities and plenty of fresh towels. Gas grill was a great bonus. Close to supermarket and restaurants, and everything else is pretty close too since the island is so small. No AC but it never bothered us. Fans in house were plenty. Highly recommend!

    Jonathan2017-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • Tania's home is a paradise for those who love nature and a quiet abode. It is modern with all the amenities. Please respect this space so it can be enjoyed by many and maintained.

    Aideen2017-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved the decor and outdoor flow of the house and how it was so well stocked with amenities. This gem is tucked away down a driveway and is a short walking distance from (what felt like a private) beach which was a necessity to cool down throughout the day. It really made our family holiday in Rarotonga a true success and we hope to return soon.

    Matt2018-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Mata Manea is tricky to find if you don’t know the island well, especially at night but Tania does offer an escort to the house. Bianca, Tania’s sister and house manager while they family are away, is always available via phonecall or text and both are lovely to deal with. The place is in great proximity to Wigmore’s (24hr gas and food store), great beaches and restaurants. The house itself is clean, spacious and well equipped. Mata manea boasts a large backyard with roaming chickens and beautiful gardenia plants. It is located down a shared driveway so in the mornings and late afternoon, you may hear vehicles and tractors going past the home to the plantation at the end however they are not bothersome or nosey. Mata Manea is a perfect place for a family or small group who’d rather their own space than the bustle of resorts. Will definitely be returning soon!

    Rachael2018-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay. Tania very helpful and found Mata Manea to be just as we expected. Awesome Thank you!

    Newly renovated self contained unit, sleeps up to 4 people. 200 metres from the best snorkelling beach, close to the Rarotongan Beach Resort & Lagoon Breeze Lodges with dining & takeaway facilities nearby. We also have a studio unit next door, available also through Airbnb.
  • Fantastic place to stay. Short walk to the best snorkelling beach in Rarotonga. Close to Polynesian rentals for your car or scooter hire. Can access the blue sky wifi hotspot from the unit (just need to purchase the wifi pack from blue sky at the airport). And halfway between Avarua and Muri Beach. Grant and Lynette are wonderful hosts. Happy to give you advice about activities to do and places to visit. Highly recommended.

    Joanne And Dave2018-06-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great location for snorkeling, excellent hospitality, our family had a lovely time stay, definitely come back again, highly recommend to everyone.

    Hannah2018-05-09T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place to stay and just walking distance to the beach. Amazing hosts. You will not regret staying with them!

    Katy2018-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Lynette was a great host. Room was very clean and tidy. 5 minute walk to beach across the road-which was stunning to walk across the road every morning. They provide free snorkel gear to guests too which is massive here as costs of hiring shoes and snorkel gear can get quite expensive. Would highly recommend this place to further guests. As a super host myself I know it’s the small touches that make something rad and great. Thank you Lynette and Grant.

    RayRay2018-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location!! Best snorkelling beach, beautiful sunsets, gorgeous mountain views are all at your doorstep. The unit itself was great. It had everything we needed (beach towels and snorkelling equipment were much appreciated) to make our stay enjoyable. Lynette and Grant were great hosts. Full of tips and local info. Nothing was too much trouble. We had a wonderful stay at Paradise Escape. Definitely recommend.

    Alana2018-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • It has been a real pleasure to have a weeks stopover on Raro. I hired a bike with huge tyres, did a circumnavigation of the island and found it useful for just getting around. Snorkelling was the biggest hit and I went back again and again. Hiked to the Needle where I could see the ocean north and south. It was muddy, slippery and steep in parts. In all it took about 2 hours up and perhaps longer coming back. A real tropical jungle. Thank you Grant and Lynette for being perfect hosts.

    Colin2018-04-09T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing, friendly hosts. Great location only a minutes walk to the best snorkelling In Rarotonga.

    Gather fresh local produce, BBQ by the pool,dine under the stars,wake to warm fresh mornings with the sounds of surf breaking on the reef 200m away-experience it here, at our beautiful, clean & amazingly affordable paradise- Ariana Garden Bungalows.

We're very close to the 24 hour grocery & petrol store known as "The Super Brown Store" only a 2- 3 min walk from Ariana. We're set slightly back from the main road, turning inland at the Super Brown Store-150 to 200m. The beach front is directly opposite the Super Brown Store -but this is not a recommended swimming beach. We're 3.2km to the main town-Avarua, 6km to the well known" Muri Beach Lagoon"-only 1 of the many swimming beaches. Our location can provide our guests with a real view of "What it's like to live in Rarotonga".
  • We really enjoyed a week in such a nice place! Everything was exactly as described. Cosy, clean and comfortable bungalow had everything what we needed. Garden and all surroundings is very nice. Never mind that you are not staying right on beach. If you hire a scooter everything is close and you are not surrounded by tourist in Ariana garden. Everybody was very nice and welcoming. As well all chickens, hens, cocks, geckos... We will stay much longer next time! Highly recommended

    Tomas2016-06-19T00:00:00Z

    Stephanie2015-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great little spot - the unit was super clean and had everything we needed. Lovely bathroom with a nice shower and good water pressure. The UV filter for the drinking water was a handy convenience. Loved the pool, it was so nice to come back after a day out and lie beside the pool, swimming whenever it got too hot in the sun. The games room was awesome too, we played some pool and there was a great range of books if you didn't bring your own. A nice quiet spot off the main road, so you can avoid the sounds of cars and scooters at night. Great value for the price.

  • If we could have stayed another month in Raro with Kylie and Marshall, I think we probably would have. Communication with Evelyn before we arrived was great, and Kylie and Marshall were great hosts, providing transport to and from the airport, helping us to choose and book tours and generally making sure we were settled in on the island. The animal life was great, from Taxi and Boots to the shy new kitten, even down to the family of geckos that cleared our verandah of as many bugs as they could manage of an evening. The only reason I might not recommend it is in case it gets so busy I can't go back myself. I can't remember the last time I felt genuinely sad to leave a place after such a short time, but it's fair to say island life gets into your blood pretty fast.

    Andy2015-05-30T00:00:00Z
  • Great Stay! Highly recommended! Since our arrival we enjoyed this place very much. The hosts are so frendly and the atmosphere is really authentic and local. Thanks again

    Noah2018-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic stay! Accommodation was very clean with everything you needed. Gardens were absolutely beautiful. The boys loved the yummy bananas! Thank you for a wonderful stay.

    Aye2016-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • The hosts are of Ariana Bungalows are knowledgeable, helpful and more than happy to offer suggestions and answer any questions about the island itself and/or services available on the island. I loved the laid back atmosphere at Ariana. It is a relaxing, pleasant environment where people are able to come and go as they please or spend the day lazing by the pool. I relied on public transport to travel around the island and the bus stop is only about 200m from Ariana - super convenient. The location is close to town (via bus) and the bungalows are secure, clean and well stocked. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Ariana Bungalows to others.

There are local fruit such as Pawpaw's/Papaya, Custard apple, avocado's, Lemongrass (for tea), banana's all grown on our property so feel free and help yourself to everything during your stay.
    lots of parking space just minutes walk from the Muri night market Breathtaking view of Avana/Muri lagoon which you can enjoy by simply sitting on the covered balcony. Ariki Bungalows is also located below our house so you can pop down and book trips such as kite surfing, The Infamous buggy tours, snorkelling and night paddle boarding etc.
    nice and quiet setting to get away from the hustle and bustle. The local plants flourish up at our house so you'll just love the greenery.
  • Just had 2 weeks at this lovely spacious home. Can't say enough good things about it from the well supplied kitchen, the two bathrooms, generous linen supplied, gifts of fruit and local delicacies and Tau and Teara who live downstairs were gracious and welcoming hosts who promptly acted on any concerns or inquiries. Yes, its up a steep driveway so a car would be advisable but by the end of 2 weeks we were walking up and down easily. Makes for wonderful views. Muri night Markets are walkable and a great eating option. Cant wait to go back for an extended stay.

  • Dawn's place was lovely and well equipped. Towels, toilet paper & laundry stuff provided which helped heaps with costs. We were quite far away from town which was nice and quiet and the fruit and avocado trees were awesome! The only thing we weren't wholly aware of was that it is up a big hill and with our parents was impossible to get up and down especially in the heat. Also has no air con which was really difficult with only 2 fans, but will be fine if you can handle it! :)

    Haylee2017-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • The house was beautifully located on the hillside in a wonderful garden. Fresh fruit from the garden every morning, great lagoon views and a very welcoming family. My boyfriend and I would definitely recommend this place! Thank you so much for a great stay.

    Emilie2017-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay here. Hosts were most helpful. Well-priced and comfortable with all you need for a Raro getaway. We loved: - the complimentary bread and freshly cooked banana pancakes on the first morning; - the ever-replenishing fruit bowl of avocados, mangos, passion fruit, star fruit, paw paw and coconut; - the spaciousness which allowed for my family of 2 adults and 5 teenages/kids to spread out when we were home; - Being elevated - great view; - Being close to Muri night markets; - Teara bringing in our washing when it rained - thanks Teara. Will be back.

    Dan2017-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • Fabulous view over Muri Lagoon, lots of room for families or friends to stay together with 3 bathrooms. Loved the fruit trees and fresh fruit provided by Teara. Also, felt like we had a more "authentic" experience of Rarotonga by not staying in a resort. Great value for money. Rarotonga is a special place!

    Suzanne2018-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • The hospitality was exceptional, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We thought we were going to have another couple with us, which would have made the price very reasonable. This would be a good house for two couples, or for a family, however, it was a bit pricey for two people. The house is a bit older, but funky, livable, with fully equipped kitchen and laundry. The one bed we used was very comfortable. The view of the lagoon was great, with our breakfasts and suppers on the deck listening to the waves and watching the frigate birds over the lagoon and islands.

    David2018-03-24T00:00:00Z
  • The place was clean and tidy and all the amenities were there. The host even left us bread and milk which was lovely. Great location with Muri lagoon down the hill and a great view.

    Abbey2016-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • This place exceeded my expectations. It was huge and so clean and tidy. The hosts were so welcoming and lovely. I will defiantly be recommending this place to all my family and friends. Thank you so much for having us

    Winner - Air New Zealand Cook Islands Tourism Award 2011-12 - Best Private Home This high-ceilinged 100 year old Colonial timber bungalow was moved from the owners village to her family land on the beach. The home has been enlarged, fully restored, with 2 decks added. Absolute beachfront, sitting well off of the main road its next door neighbour is Rumours of Rarotonga, a 5 star accommodation. Held in trust for Aloma Moore, the youngest accommodation owner in the Cook Islands, this is the only Colonial era dwelling on Rarotonga available to visitors. The bungalow is located on Tikioki Beach, at the southern end of Muri Beach and has the advantages of being on the ’right’ side of the island without being in the centre of the Muri Beach developed area. The best restaurants and other attractions are a comfortable walk down the beach, while privacy is assured. The wide lagoon in front of the bungalow is on the edge of a large marine reserve, with the best snorkeling on Rarotonga. The bungalow has been faithfully restored while adding modern appliances and features. A stainless steel and ceramic tile kitchen with a bevelled glass view of the lagoon offers a sunrise outlook.
  • Listing was accurate. We were met at the airport at 1:00 a.m.. Terrible hour to be arriving but it was no problem. Our host left us a huge basket of food for the next day and beyond, which was greatly appreciated. The telephone in the cottage was great to have as we used it to contact our host and to check on restaurants and other activities. There were plenty of linens and towels for our use and the kitchen was compact and functional. The Beach House was a great place to relax and enjoy Rarotonga.

    Diane2016-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • We spent a perfect week at The Beach Place. Right on the beach at Muri Lagoon with some of the best snorkeling we have ever experienced literally meters away. Secluded, charming and with very attentive hosts. The photos don't do it justice. We particularly enjoyed simply relaxing on the deck looking out to the Lagoon. Highly recommended.

    Rob2018-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • We were met at airport by Travis, Aloma's father. Having food items in refrigerator was greatly appreciated as well as the tip of where to eat at the Miri night market...back right corner served very generous and tasty dinner! Seclusion with large plantings of shrubs was great, as it felt very private. Home was very clean with a great kitchen, and bath. Charming bed with adequate storage. We enjoyed the covered deck and ate all meals there. Short walk down beach to snorkeling area. Lots of gorgeous cobalt blue sea stars directly in front of rental. Drove to Aroa Beach for wonderful snorkeling.

    Myrna2017-03-24T00:00:00Z
  • We hired pushbikes and had a great time riding to where we wanted to go. Handy to the Muri night market, which was a fun place to eat. The Beach place is a very peaceful place to stay, but close to the action if you want to be part of it.

    Andrew2016-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • We wanted privacy and beach front and the beach place delivers both. A great place to totally relax and unwind and the little parcels of goodies that arrived through out our stay were delish. To be picked up and dropped of at the airport was another bonus. For all foodies we fully recommend Le rendezvous cafe and bistro. It is by the airport and not such a pretty spot but by far the best food on the island. Many thanks to Travis and his family. Kind regards

    Sue2017-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Could not have been kinder and more helpful with our stay: collected from airport, looked after our bags while we went to Aitutaki, picked us up again and let us stay in another house after check out because our plane was really late. The bungalow was more spacious than we expected, was very well equipped and had lots of character. A long way from standardised hotel rooms - as we like it. Excellent location in all respects. We loved it and hope to return. Check out the Matuta Brewery tour just over the road if you enjoy craft beer!

    Dennis2015-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed for a magical week at The Beach Place and wouldn't want to stay anywhere else the next time we are in Raro. The best part was probably the location. Private and separate from Muri activity but less than a 20 minute walk into Muri. Only 2 minutes away by car or scooter if you rent. Being outside by close to Muri also means you basically have the beach to yourself in front of the house. We loved the deck and kitchen...I could go on and on. This is the spot. Thanks to our hosts as well. Cheers.

    Scott2017-04-30T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great one week stay at The Beach Place. It really is a lovely property and we enjoyed the absolute lagoon-front location. Check-in with Travis was very efficient - he was also there to meet us at the airport - and we appreciated his complimentary gifts of local oranges, sourdough bread and ground coffee. The location of The Beach Place was ideal - close to the attractions and restaurants of Muri Beach - but definitely with its own privacy. Highly recommended and we'll definitely stay here again when we return to Rarotonga.

    The lovingly decorated, Cook Island style studio is nestled in a beautiful garden within walking distance of the city center away. It has a separate entrance, 1 double bed, fan, 1 bathroom with shower / WC, couch, Veranda with kitchenette (fridge, oven, microwave kettle and toaster). Private car parking next to the studio. Distances: airport 1,5 km beach 1,5 km city center approx. 500 m mini market approx. 300 m Airport pickup 10 NZ $ per person can be arranged Hotspot available
    The bungalows are placed in a lush tropical garden with a lot of flowers and fruit to explore. Depending on the season you are welcome to try mango, pawpaw, passion fruit, lemon or what ever else you might find.
    We are close to town right in the shade of the Rarotongan mountains. The area is safe and very good for walks or bike rides right at the begining of the cross island track ( over the needle / a wonderful mountain with scenic view). You should not miss the big island market ( Punanganui market) on Saturdays (from 8 am - 12.30 pm) with fruits, vegetables, food, local handcraft, pearls and local music with dance show just 500 m away.
  • Our stay with Ingrid was nice. The studio is spacious and the bed was very comfortable. The patio was nice to sit on and relax even when it rained. Ingrid was so nice to pick us up from the airport. Bring your own water as the tap water is not drinkable. And the unit can get very warm even with the fan blowing. Otherwise it is a good place to stay close to town and the airport.

    Marshall2018-04-10T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the close proximity to the township. Only a 10min walk to Avatiu Harbour & Market. Loved that this peaceful hidden gem is off the road an away from the commercial resorts. If you want to experience local island living than this place is it. Our unit was lovely and clean, had everything we needed for our stay. Thank you for having us beautiful Rarodise.

    Inez2018-04-20T00:00:00Z
  • Ingrid picked me up from the airport when I arrived at an ungodly hour. The room was lovely and Rarotonga was amazing.

    Sarah2017-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • The place was real nice and clean when I arrived. I was surprised that it had 2 bedrooms. So I had plenty of space by myself. The shower pressure was amazing and it is a nice and quiet space to stay if that is what you are looking for. Only took me 10-15 mins to walk to town to get me a scooter so if you haven't organised a car or you get in late at night and cant get a scooter or a car then the walk to town from this place isn't that far. Was picked up from the airport as arranged, however to my surprise it wasn't the host (I thought she was going to be there, so I looked for a female, when in fact I got picked up by a taxi driver who must work with her). I wasn't greeted by the host but the landlord of the building instead. Overall it was a nice stay and I really enjoyed the peace and quiet and the amazing shower pressure!!! Would be nice if there was a TV to watch for when people want downtime! :)

    Tuheitia2018-04-21T00:00:00Z
  • Uns hat es bei Ingrid sehr gut gefallen. Sie hat einen wunderschönen Garten. Sie hat uns freundlich empfangen und war sehr hilfsbereit.

    Birgit2016-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • Ingrid is such a kind host. She picked us up from the airport, showed us around the town and dropped us to the airport at 4 am. We really appreciate what she has done for us.

    Lingdi2017-05-12T00:00:00Z
  • In general I have nothing to complain about, Ingrid tries her best to accomodate her guests. But this trip just started wrong for me and not having our own transport was a huge setback. Also the price with the transfer was unclear and very expensive since the units are very close to the airport. The chickens were annoying but bearable, they did poop all around the terrace. I was lacking at a more personal approach and niceness but the bungalow was nice and private and spacious.

    Mande2017-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • The studio is nice and clean, the garden is amazing (need to come back during the mango and lytchee season tho!) and there is everything you need to be happy. Ingrid is really nice and will keep you update if anything happen in town :) we had a really nice holidays. Thanks.

    Picture yourself relaxing by the pool and soaking up the warm sun, or out and about exploring the island with the knowledge you're coming back to a spacious cozy dwelling at the end of a long and enjoyable day.
  • It is good place, living 2nd times

    Wei2016-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • A very tidy and clean home. Awesome place for a group of people, we had a pool and a BBQ and it was a fun time. I would stay here again!!

    Amy2017-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • Bob is really really nice and patient, all good!

    Zach2016-07-19T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Bob's place for 7 days. Overall we loved the house. It was just as it appeared in pictures. Great location, pool was amazing, good kitchen facilities etc, really clean when we arrived just a few issues with the house not being cleaned, rubbish taken etc. But we discussed this with Bob who was very apologetic and a cleaner arrived within 20mins of our phone call. We did have an issue with the key when we arrived as we had been given different instructions on where it was and were locked out for over 2 hours until we accidentally came upon it (thankfully) as it was 3am. I'm sure this won't be an issue in the future. Bob was quick with communication and responding to questions. I would recommend to my friends and family in the future.

    Rosanna2016-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • It is big house, very new, I think it is valuable to reserve . Bob is nice, wait us at the front of superstore. It is good to have local telephone card to contact Bob before you leave airport

    Wei2016-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • great work Bob, very kind host. we had a great time

    Sammy2016-05-24T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely LOVED staying at paradise holiday homes! Bob was so helpful, from arranging someone to collect us and greet us with flower garlands, to ensuring we had everything we needed and that we made it home OK. The villa was spotless and perfectly equipped with brand new appliances (even a toastie maker!!) none of us could fault anything. Thank you for an idyllic holiday in paradise!

    Lorne2016-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time and the house was perfect and we will be staying here again when we are back in the Cooks !

  • Awesome accommodation with amazing view. Everything was clean and host was really friendly and helpful. Would come again. Thank you

    Tomáš2018-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • This place was incredible to stay at. We stayed for 8 nights and loved every minute. The accommodation was incredibly tidy and our hosts had gone over and above to make sure our stay was like a home away from home. Highly recommended. By far the best accommodation we could have had in Raro. Location and every thing was amazing. Thanks so much

  • This property is beautiful inside and out! It is spotless with modern fixtures and amenities. Including everything you need for the comforts of home. Very spacious living areas and great size bedrooms. The outdoor deck is simply amazing with a gorgeous view of the main road. It is sheltered but also has areas out in the sun for you to tan hehe The hosts are beautiful friendly people who go above and beyond to make sure your stay is as enjoyable as it can be. They even made space for us to use while we were waiting for our late night flight and went out of their way to drop us off at the airport. I was truly overehelmed with their generosity and kindness. I highly recommend this house and the host and his family. I will be recommending him to my friends and family and would definitely choose to stay here again on our next visit to the island if the property is available.

    Dejan2018-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay, such a beautiful home with a lovely decking area. The outside couch was comfortable and perfect for an afternoon snooze. We will be back, amazing hosts that were extremely responsive both leading up to our stay and while we were there. Loved the fresh fruit that was left in the fridge for us to enjoy on arrival. Would highly recommend staying here on your trip to paradise.

    Kate2018-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • If you're after modern accommodation, close to town (and Muri) and great hosts, look no further than Nevaeh Home. Desmond and his sister Nina were the perfect hosts. They waited patiently at the airport as my wife and I, our 3 young adult children (plus one extra) slowly exited the airport. Giving us our space is essentially how they were during our visit but still a phone call away at a moments notice. The property is perfectly situated on the main road 5 mins from town and 10mins from Muri. This house with modern decor has everything you need inside and more outside if you want to entertain. It is literally a home away from home. If you open up the windows a breeze always flows through the house. Add to that the ceiling fans and who needs aircon. Desmond also offered the use of his car at a very reasonable rate which turned out to be extremely useful as no cars were available on the island during our stay. Only scooters. I've can't rave enough about this place. You won't go wrong here.

    Tom2018-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • We had such an amazing time, the location was great in the middle between muri beach and the islands main town center. Desmond and Tracy were amazing hosts and went above and beyond when we had flight issues. The house was very spacious with a washing machine and dryer, very useful for outdoor activities. We had all the privacy we wanted while knowing they were there for anything we needed. Tracy's tips for what to do also made our holiday much more enjoyable. We did every one. would recommend for couples and families alike.

    Tom2018-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place to stay close to club raro

    Jonathan2018-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • A+ property with all the comforts of home. Family friendly and huge open space to stretch out in and relax. Very good location and very close to all of the islands attractions. Desmond, Nina & co are great hosts and make your stay very easy. My family and I would highly recommend holidaying at this quality property and we are looking forward to our return.

    Quiet area with mountain view, close to Aroa Beach and the Rarotongan Beach Resort & Spa. Unit has kitchen, TV and Radio. Located nearby is Car Rental Company, Dive Centre for Scuba Diving, and a Café.
  • 100% recommendation. Oki (Donald's beautiful mother) is an excellent host. The room is a perfect, safe & private home-away-from-home experience, offering great value you wouldn't get at a resort. Fresh fruit was in the fridge when I arrived, with bottles of chilled water. The room is clean and the bed is very comfortable. The best beach on the Island is a short 1min stroll from your room. I'm really sad I didn't book for longer. When I tried the room was already booked by the next lucky guests! Oki came to my rescue and helped me book in with her relatives for the remainder of my stay on the Island. Im bringing my family back, not just because Rarotonga is a white sand paradise but because I want them to meet, Oki. Take special care of yourself, Oki. Thank You, for the great conversations and the kindness you extended to me. My first trip to the Island was made perfect because of you xxx

    Bernie2018-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • It's a good place for me staying 3 nights there. I can just walk 1 minute to the aroa beach just beside the Rarotanga resort and enjoy the time by laying down on the beach with beautiful sunset. I haven't met Donald,but he booked airport transfers for me and his mother,a really kind woman is waiting for me at the unit.with her care,I feel so warm that she catch up with me for my forgotten towel when I left.especially for the help when she knew I had no change with me for taking bus,very nice person!thanks!

    Si Chao2017-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great location close to a nice beach (lots of people snorkelling there). Friendly cat comes and visits the front porch. Was a private and relaxed location. Towels and all basic facilities were available.

    Jan2017-05-13T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very clean and tidy accommodation, which feels new, with a lot of attention to detail. There was fresh fruit in the bowl and fresh milk in the fridge. The grounds outside are pleasant, and there is a small deck, including cover over this. The location is good too. The hosts were helpfully responsive to all requests. I'd certainly stay there again.

    James2018-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • Nice garden house close to the best Rarotonga's snorcheling beach - Aroa. The room was cleaning every day and we evet got fresh fruits every day. We would definitely stay again. Thanks for nice vacation.

Next time in Rarotonga I'll return in this house FOR SURE. Thank you, a big hug from Italy

  • The bedroom was excellent and spotless when we got there. The location is brilliant and the indication they gave us was really easy so we could check-in. Really nice people to talk with. We had some fresh water, fruit, vegetables and stuff for breakfast that i thought it was a really nice gesture from them. For the price that you are paying with them its great value what you get. So i wouldn't recommend them a 100%, it would be a 110% for sure.

The owner's kindness is something unique. On our part we can only advise you to go. Near you have the bus stop and a 24H open market.

  • Big Thankyou to the family of Garden Studio Getaway, Our stay at the studio was absolutely amazing, Studio is by far great value for your money, located in a private secluded area with many things just a few minutes away including 24hour super brown Petrol station with just about everything you need plus a Yummy Takeaway shop connected which is also great value for your money. Studio was stunning and so very clean, I highly recommend the Garden Studio Getaway.

  • A beautiful idealic setting off to the side of a majestic house off the busy main road and 5mins drive from town, 5min walk to the bus stop or 20-30 min walk into Avarua (town). The house belongs to a woman who is adorable, very friendly and maintains beautiful beautiful gardens on the property - perfect for that exotic grindr or tinder selfie Theres no hot plate for cooking but theres a microwave and fridge which did me fine. You need to boil water anywhere in Rarotonga but thanks to Kathmandu water tablets I was sussed. Otherwise the hostess provided everything from the first morning's breakfast, to hot beverages, somw toiletries, beautiful linen and bathroom towels and face cloths too.

  • In the review comments there is a section which asks you how you rated the accommodation, I put "as expected", this was because of all the other fantastic comments from others who have stayed at Emm's lovely holiday home, it was exactly as I expected GREAT. Location is beachfront without having to pay exorbitant resort prices, you can cook if you wish with a full sized fridge and freezer if needed. The bed is comfortable and with the wonderful food outlets in Muri a 5-10min walk away what more can you ask. Emm is a great host, quick with answering any questions and it was a pleasure meeting her and her property manager. It was a great surprise for my wife's 50th a lovely spot for two people to share I cannot rate it more highly as excellent value for money. Meitaki ma'ata, thank you again Emm and the friendly people of the Cook Islands I know we will return again. Mark and Donnene

  • Our first trip to this small but fun packed island. What a fantastic location to stay - we honestly felt that this beach front Bach was the best place to stay on the entire island. Make sure you hire a scooter to make the most of the whole island.

  • Emm's place (Reianna) was in a perfect location overlooking Muri Lagoon. Just a few minute walk to the Cafe's and Restaurants, and the night markets had some great local foods. Car & bike hire places were also nice and handy. The island bus was great value, and could be waved down at the end of the driveway to Emm's place. We had a great time, eventhough we had a few days of strong winds and rain. Russell & Fiona

  • Emm’s beach bungalow was (Website hidden by Airbnb) had everything we needed in the most perfect location on Muri Beach! It was very private, yet close to shops, food, & activities! The views are spectacular directly from the deck & the beach just footsteps away! We highly recommend this beach house for anyone looking to both relax & have fun!

  • Emm's place was fantastic! It is located on Muri Beach, where it is absolutely beautiful. So much things to do at this beach. You can rent kayaks or paddle boards or you can go on a lagoon tour all located right on the beach. You are in walking distance to everything from eateries to a little store. Scooter and car rentals are just down the street. I'd highly recommend renting a scooter to get around the island, it's a great way to see and explore. I loved the Cook Islands. Would definitely come back here again.

  • Wonderful studio house right on the beach but set back slightly so as people don't look in at you. It's very handy for the awesome night market at Muri and nice cafés plus a handy non expensive shop. If you like chilling and reading it doesn't get any better. Simple but lovely accommodation.
