Quite and breath taking view

  • This was a fantastic stay! Great location, awesome bungalows - they have everything you need and were clean and tidy. Sony was really polite and friendly and we would certainly stay again and recommend it to others. Many thanks!

  • We had a great time at Aroko Bungalows! Sonny was friendly and helpful. The bungalow was clean and well equipped. It was nice to use kayaks and reef shoes for free. We would stay again and recommend it to others.

    Florence2017-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • I loved my stay at Aroko. I drank tea on the deck and watched the sun come up over the lagoon every morning. 10 minute walk to Muri beach and restaurants (but get a scooter!). The use of the kayaks was also awesome. Very clean and everything you need.

  • great place! we really loved our stay and Sonny made everything so easy.

    Alicia2018-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • Brilliant week, enjoyed the tranquil setting, easy access to Muri town and facilities / excursions on offer. Thanks to Sonny for accommodating the late pick up.

    Rosemary2016-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • Aroko Bungalows was perfect for our stay in Rarotonga. It was close to all the restaurants in Muri Beach and we really liked that Sonny had kayaks and snorkel gear we could borrow. Sonny was very accommodating and helpful. We would definitely stay here again.

  • We had a great time at Aroko Bungalows! Sonny was very hospitable and kind to us. Sonny picked us up from the airport and brought us to our bungalow for an early check in. The property is absolutely stunning. The gardens around the bungalows are beautiful and the lagoon view is spectacular. Everything is close by to this property: shopping, restaurants, beaches for swimming, public transportation and more. I would still recommend getting a scooter or car for your stay so that you can see more of the island easily. The bungalow is well equipped, you get everything you see in the photos. A decent size bed, a kitchen that is fully equipped for your cooking needs, a bathroom with towels included and a nice deck to sit outside and enjoy the weather. We did have a couple issues with our bungalow which was listed as number 8. Every night about 5 or 6 geckos would waltz their way into our bungalow and fight and squawk and poop all over the place. It made sleeping a bit difficult. The geckos are harmless of course but waking up to their screams was a bit daunting and seeing gecko poop in our bed was not pleasant. We also had an issue with our microwave, that being it did not work. We brought these issues up to Sonny and he kindly offered to us a different bungalow (number 7). This one did not have the same issues with geckos and the entire kitchen was in working state. Between the two bungalows we stayed in we did notice that there were quite a few ants. We kept our room clean, especially the kitchen and threw all our food in the rubbish bin outside as soon as we were done with it but the ants still found their way in. I assume that ants are a common thing in the tropics so we just dealt with them, thankfully the bungalows are equipped with bug spray (which we used frequently)! Overall, the issues were heavily outweighed by the positives: beautiful property, close to everything, kayaks and snorkel gear available for everyone and all for a very affordable price! Please note: If you are not okay with bugs and geckos then you may want to pay extra for a resort.

    Rarotonga, Muri, Острова Кука

    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.
  • Nick and his family were amazing. They picked us up and also dropped our bags off to us the evening after checking out (our flight was delayed). A beautiful family that are great hosts. Helpful, warm and friendly, and they definitely went out of their way to make sure our stay was enjoyable as possible and that we were comfortable. We would highly recommend this place - it has everything you need and is far superior to a studio room in most hotels. You would not regret your choice. We know we will be back again.

    Mark & Leanne2018-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • This accomodation was great! Clean, quiet and a nice get a away in the hills of Raro. Great hosts and only a short ride to town. Nicholas he host is great, gives you a lot of good info on what to do and how to do it. Didn’t want to leave

    Leon2018-03-02T00:00:00Z

    Jiří2018-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect, Nick and Linda were wonderful hosts, very welcoming and a pleasure to stay with. A lovely well equipped place with everything you need for a relaxed stay in the Cook Islands. Thank you

    Tasha2017-06-27T00:00:00Z
  • I absolutely loved Nick's place. Clean, spacious and super comfortable! I have paid for hotels that were more expensive but not nearly as good as this place. Nick always responded very quickly and accurately to my messages. He and his family are very nice and lovely people. I highly recommend a stay at Nick's Rarotonga Mountain Getaway!

    Daniel2018-05-21T00:00:00Z
  • 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.

    Avarua District, Острова Кука

    My place is close to the beach, Palm Grove, Wigmores. You’ll love my place because of the value, clean, and the beach. My place is good for couples and solo adventurers. The home is quite close to the road so there will be traffic noise.
    Situated on the south side of Rarotonga in tranquil Vaimaanga. M&M Studio is two fully self contained units within the same building. Built across the road from one of Rarotonga’s most beautiful white sand beaches known for its snorkeling, marine treasures, and excellent swimming. Both studios have large spacious living/sleeping areas, with a modern kitchen off to the side. Dining is out on the shared covered verandah, looking out to the properties beach and your first choice for swimming and snorkeling…30 seconds away! M&M Studios would be ideal for two couples planning a getaway together but not necessarily wanting to stay in the same house together, its shared verandah being perfect for socialising.
    a 15 minute sunset stroll along the beach will lead you to the “Vaima” restaurant replete with an excellent bar and menu. Coming back along the road will take you past Wigmores superstore for essential household shopping and further along the Yellow Hibiscus Restaurant. Walking the other way will bring you to the Saltwater Café (excellent coffee), more great snorkeling and the Queens Representative Home. The Vaimaanga district is also famous for “Papua” (Wigmores Waterfall) and the cross island walk, a four hour trek that takes you through the tropical interior of the island to “The Needle” a large rock outcrop that reveals spectacular mountain views of Rarotonga, from the mountains to the sea! People generally start this trek inland from the township of Avarua ending up in Vaima at the waterfall.
  • We didn't meet Eddie personally but communicated via telephone or messages. When we had a problem with our hot water, he had it repaired immediately. He told us not to worry when we told him that fixing our mosquito net might have caused some damage to the ceiling. We appreciated that very much as we were quite worried indeed. The appartment was lovely, clean and very well equipped. Basics like coffee, tea, salt were provided. On top of that there were even a bottle of water and milk as well as washing powder for the washing machine. The sea is just across the road and was good for snorkelling. I'd clearly recommend!

    Alexandra2016-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • Ordentliche Unterkunft. Sauber Basic Style. Straße etwas laut, dafür schön gelegen mit Kontakt zu locals.

    Eric2018-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • The studio was awesome. Very clean. Great location, a few meters from the beach. The place is very well served by buses if you don't want to rent scooters, bicycles or cars. The Wigmore Falls is very nice. Eddie was very accomodating. It was a very nice week

    Lise-Anne2017-05-19T00:00:00Z
  • Good, clean accommodation. A beautiful beach and snorkelling but across a busy road.

    Harry2018-06-12T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Eddie’s place, a great place for good value! It was helpful being just down the road from Wigmores too.

    Georgia2019-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • The little studio was great! Had everything we needed for our stay. Location was perfect, and we had everything we needed.

    Richard2016-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • Great location right across the street from one of the best beaches in Rarotonga. Was very handy being about 10min walk each way to Wigmores Supermarket. Extra beach towels and snorkelling gear supplied were a nice touch too. The place was very clean and tidy, only issue we had was airport transfer pickup home was about an hour late than what we were expecting and caused a little stress but wasn't Eddie's fault.

    George2018-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • This little studio was in a prime location and was perfect for us! Secluded beach on your doorstep and essentials were provided. Eddie also had great communication and the transfer was an option that we did not regret. Will be back!

    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.
  • Gwen is super lovely and helpful, and always made sure that we had everything we needed (fresh sheets, towels etc). The bungalow is in a wonderful location. It does get pretty hot although the fan helps with that. There are a few sneaky bugs and geckos but nothing major! Finally, I'd recommend buying a few Blue Sky wifi packs and heading down to the museum for the hotspot access! There is none available from the bungalow itself. Overall I had a great experience and really enjoyed my stay with Muri Beach Cottages.

    Lana Joy2018-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to stay on a budget, has all necessities in a cute studio. Lovely setting and helpful but non intrusive host. Close to the beach and Muri central for the cafes and night market. Would happily stay there again. Take ear plugs if you are noise sensitive as there is some rooster and traffic noise but really not a biggie.

    Sheryl2017-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • 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
  • 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 is an exceptional host and goes out of her way to help if there's any problems..she has an immense amount of local knowledge..especially helpful if it's your first visit..

    Jennifer2019-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • I was immediately drawn to Gwen’s studio when I was looking for accommodation for my trip. And boy, did it not disappoint. From the moment I arrived to the day I left, Gwen was extremely welcoming, accommodating and super friendly. If you are a lover of animals like I am, you will sure feel at home with her furry family :) With the beach as your backyard and great coffee/cafes in a short walking distance, The Studio was in perfect location - and fantastic for a solo traveller or couple. A great kitchen to cook in (no microwave - so cooking everything fresh was great!) and a generous sized seperate bedroom which was spacious & cozy at the same time. Gwen’s garden was just gorgeous to walk through to get to the beach. Sitting under the palm tree, watching the sunrise is a must! That is also where the wifi is located, but internet is quite expensive on the island & doesn’t last long, so just be cautious if and when you use it. Zoe, Little Boy, and the kittens were super friendly and many a day/night I’d find CB or Little Boy snuggling up with me on my bed. Overall, I loved my whole experience at the Studio and at Rarotonga. Best coffee was at the Ariki Shack & the cafe with the big verandah (I think it’s called LVD?) which are both short walks into Muri. The Needle Walk is a must and going to a Sunday church service, which Gwen will happily guide you to - incredible singing!! Thank you Gwen for making my Cook Island experience the best. ❤️

    Jessica2018-05-06T00:00:00Z
  • We couldn’t have had a more pleasant stay at Gwen’s studio lodge on her property. It was clean, spacious, and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Super close to the beach and really easy to get in and out of the shopping area, as well as being near various cafes and restaurants. Activities also very close by, with an excellent moped rental place just down the road. The property itself is set in a lovely lush garden with fresh fruit trees, coconuts, and even an avocado tree! Gwen is a wonderful host to goes out of her way to make sure you are happy, but also allows maximum privacy if you prefer to remain undisturbed. Zoe the dog and Little Boy the cat (plus the other two black cats!) were a joy to spend time with, too. All in all, five stars from us. Enjoy your stay!

    Paul2018-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • 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!

    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.
  • An oasis of calm and the hosts, Fletcher and Vaea, went above and beyond to be helpful

    Marianne2018-11-16T00:00:00Z

    Tawa2018-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • Fletcher and his family were extremely welcoming and helpful as hosts and we are really grateful to them. They have a nice self-contained bungalow located in a quiet but central area of town, in the back of a beautiful garden, so it's both a pleasant and convenient place to stay at. We definitely recommend you stay there!

    Diego2018-06-05T00:00:00Z
  • Center of paradise is nice, comfortable and clean place to stay, conveniently located in avarua town near the marketplace, shops and restaurants, and its hosts Fletcher and Vaea are truly welcoming. If I ever come back to the island I would definitely stay here again.

    Diego2018-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • 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.

    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
  • In one word : FANTASTIC. This place is magic. The house is brand new, beautifully decorated and sooo relaxing. Feel like home as soon as you turn the keys. Because of the storm we didn’t get a chance to see a lot of sun but we’ve been lucky enough to meet the most amazing people - Fiona, Turori and their family. Will return for sure and recommend 1000% - if you’re after some life changing holidays, don’t look any further. France and Chris

    Christophe2018-04-11T00:00:00Z
  • While this home has some lovely features(the pool!) it didn't have the bbq as stated and I missed where it said there was no hairdryer :( Also the hot water supply wasn't adequate enough for 2 adults to have hot showers. Be aware that as it is situated on the back road and away from any of the busy hubs, you definitely need a car! If you can avoid it, we wouldn't recommend coming in on a Sunday either. Nothing is operating so pretty much a waste of a day and unless you know the island well, getting meals can be a mission! And nobody mentions the roaming dogs and roosters making a cacophony of noise all hours of the day and night! Fiona and Turori are lovely hosts and have a charming family yet little touches such as milk on day of arrival for tea and salt and pepper for cooking would go a long way. Also, a small investment in quality bedding would be appreciated by those coming in for long stays. The nightly tariff more than justify's this. Still a nice spot if you value your privacy and autonomy.

    MurrayTania2018-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • Fiona was the perfect host from start to finish. We arrived on the first night late at night and she arranged the transfer from the airport and was even up when we arrived to show us around the house which was very reassuring. During our first few days Fiona and her family lent us their bikes as we could not hire a scooter or car as they were fully booked which I thought was very generous of them. I could write a lot more about how Fiona went out of her way to help us - she was exceptional. The house itself was immaculate with not a thing out of place! We especially loved the hammocks and spent hours just relaxing on them. The pool is also a welcome relief on those hot days and the air con is perfect for those hot evenings. The house is situated less than 10 minutes from a beach which we walked down to, to catch the beautiful sun sets most evenings. There is also a shop roughly 10 min walk away too which was helpful. The house is also not on the main road which is great as you do not hear any of the traffic and it is very private. To summarise, we could not have had a better stay. The house and the host were perfect! We will be back again (we hope!)

    Rosie2017-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • This place was great! Nice, new, clean, quiet. The pool and outdoor space is perfect for relaxing. Kitchen is nice and well stocked enough for cooking your own meals. The island is so small that everything is accessible if you have a car/scooter. Highly recommend this for any couple looking for an island getaway.

    Nate2018-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely beautiful place. Thank you for having us.

    Hayden2018-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • This place was perfect for me. I wanted a secluded place with a pool and that’s what I got. I would recommend getting groceries and renting a scooter or car before arriving, but I didn’t mind walking around. The best cafe in Raro is only a 10-15 min walk from the house. Hosts are amazing and lovely! If you want to relax without anyone around, this is your place!

    Jen2018-06-02T00:00:00Z
  • This place is situated on the back road so it gives a great place to sit back and relax off the main road where a lot of the hotels and tourists are. We hired a scooter which was an excellent way to see the rest of the island, and having honey rose retreat as base everything was safe and easy to get to. The house has everything you need, it was clean and tidy, having somewhere to wash clothes was a huge bonus, and having the facilities to cook was also great so we didnt have to go out for every meal. Fiona and Turori are excellent host and are willing to help with anything you need or give information about the island.

  • Marcelle and Dion are great hosts. The property is immaculate and well maintained. A lovely relaxing place to base yourself while exploring the island. We were a family of four - including Grandma - visiting. Plenty of room for all ages to enjoy and not get under each other’s toes. A great kids playground too. Marcelle was really helpful and provided some top tips for local attractions and restaurants. Would thoroughly recommend.

    Karen2019-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Casa Del Sol is truely a gem. Our holiday was perfect. We were immediately made welcome by Marcelle, Dion and their two boys. The villas are outstanding, everything you could possibly need was provided for us. I will be recommending Casa Del Sol to everyone back in New Zealand!

    Leeana2018-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • 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 and Dion are fantastic hosts who welcomed us to their amazing villa, interacted well with us, were a wealth of local knowledge and showed us things like how to husk the coconut which our teenager couldn’t stop doing haha. The villas are stunning homes, very clean and spacious and flow well for families. The pool and treehouse area are ideal when us parents just want to hang out on the deck for a while. The service staff are very friendly and helpful too. Great location with just a 5 minute walk to the beach and 2 minute drive to supermarket. All in all a wonderful place to book. My husband and I took our 4 kids for 10 days and we had heaps of space as well as making new friends with the family staying in the second villa. Hubby and I will definitely be going back just the 2 of us at some point and this would be our first choice of accommodation. Thank you Marcelle and Dion xx

    Sarah2018-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • If you wanna enjoy the beautiful Raro in the perfect home, Casa Del Sol is your place to go. Everything was so well done. They had everything for cooking, came with towels whenever we needed and Marcelle is such an awesome lady! From students that stayed over six days in the villa. Thanks Marcelle, hope coming back one day! Cheers.

    Martin2017-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • All I can say is AMAZING!!!

    Casey2019-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • A huge deck for BBQs and hanging out, a gorgeous pool (Website hidden by Airbnb) bathrooms, complete comfort of home. Just lovely x

    Roslind2018-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • Marcelle and Dion are wonderful and generous hosts who went out of their way to share a slice of raro with us. Coconut husking, local fruit picking, the odd machine coffee and a wonderful walk up a private track for a sunset view over the island. The rooms were loverly and perfectly designed for Raro weather, with a stunning large deck and a lovely shared pool. BBQ, large fridge, dishwasher, and everything else you would need for a home away from home. Great local tips and genuine care for guests safety. Thanks for a wonderful holiday.

    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.
  • great place by the beach with a private hut on the beach in the shade of coconut trees

    Liam2018-11-13T00:00:00Z
  • Kev & Cathy’s place is in a great location & very close to a couple of bars. Very hospitable host with lots of local knowledge and suggestions. Would definitely recommend & it is even better than it looks in the pictures.

    Caroline2019-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Loved our stay here! Peaceful, clean and private; what more can you ask for! Missing it already!

    Folko2018-06-20T00:00:00Z
  • Wow! If you’re thinking of booking do it, you won’t be disappointed! This studio is on the beach with stunning sunsets and everything you need. Kevin met us at the airport, although it was too early for checkin we were allowed into the studio. It’s clean, well appointed with everything you need including aeroguard! There is filtered drinking water and a kitchenette. There is even a double head shower! We had a very comfortable stay, Kevin and Cathy are close by if you need them. They had great suggestions of restaurants and things to do. There are some lovely restaurants walking distance from the studio. We can’t thank Kev and Cathy enough for their hospitality and allowing us to share the Rarotongan paradise.

    Charlotte2019-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Location is great, right on the beach with beautiful views of the sunsets. We enjoyed all the thoughtful touches from beach towels, to DVDs for rainy nights, to a very well equipped kitchen. The hosts were friendly and helpful. Nice place to stay.

    Jill2018-04-27T00:00:00Z
  • After you finish reading this review, you'll think I'm a relative of Cathy and Kevin, because I'm going over the top here. There's a good reason for that. I've travelled half the world and I can honestly say that Kevin and Cathy's was my favourite overseas stay ever. They are the King and Queen of hosts! They have 3 apartments / houses to stay in, and I stayed in 2 - that's because I chose to extend my stay. Each apartment, even the smallest, is immaculate and Cathy's superb taste means the ambience in each is delightful, relaxing and cosy. My mates and I do a boys' weekend every year, and I'm already campaigning to get them here for a boys' week some time over the next year or so. I saw 1 or 2 of the local resorts..don't bother! They simply don't compare. The private views of the beach and the gorgeous peace and quiet beat the competition hands down. I simply can't recommend this place and these people any higher. A beautiful sanctuary. You can't go past this. Honestly. Thanks guys. See you again :)

    Chris2018-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing stay. Kev was so friendly and helpful and the place was lovely. We had everything we needed and there was obviously a lot of thought and effort made to ensure a great stay. I really liked the environmentally friendly toiletries provided and that there were great recycling facilities including food waste. I can't recommend this place highly enough.

    Sarah2018-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • An excellent stay. Location is top notch, and the unit had everything we wanted with plenty of space for a couple sharing. Warm hosts with a lot of knowledge of the local area. Bars/restaurants very close by. If we return to the Cook Islands, we would certainly look to stay again.

    Inge2017-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • 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
  • This place is a hidden gem!! Nicole and Kahiki were great hosts - two amazing, warm-hearted people who made us feel welcome. They picked us up and dropped us back at the airport. On arrival the bungaloo was presented beautifully with lots of helpful tourist info. The bungaloo is very well equipped with ensuite, cooking facilities, a fan, games - we couldn't have asked for anything else. After exploring the island for a couple of days we realised we had to the most beachfront bungaloo on Rarotonga!! Possibly the best valued accommodation on the island, you just walk down the stairs and your in the lagoon. We found this side of the island to have to best snorkelling. The water is so safe out the front of the bungaloo, we did take our own reef shoes to avoid any cuts. We loved their dogs and cats, very well behaved! We went swimming with the dogs in the lagoon everyday, they live the good life! Thank you again for the amazing hospitality!

    Sam And Sophie2017-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • It was the most beautiful place we`ve ever been. Nicole & Kahiki are pretty pretty cool hosts and give every support you need to have. Their little familiy with Banksy, Daisy and the cats are so cute and handsome, we enjoyed it with them very very much. We are very grateful to met them and their paradies on earth. The Bungalow better then described and anything we needed was there. Thanks to both of you for a special time :-) Regards Steffi & Jochen

    Jochen2018-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic hosts, unbelievable location, beautiful animals, spectacular lagoon - My favourite holiday of all time :D

    Campbell2017-07-04T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fabulous time at Kahiki and Nicole’s bungalow in paradise. It was a perfect location with magnificent views from your own private deck. The space had everything we needed and was thoughtfully equipped. They even provided snorkelling and other beach gear to enhance our stay and enjoy the reef life. Amazing variety of fish to see ! Kahiki ,Pascale and family were very generous with their hospitality . We were so pleased to also hear Kahiki play at the local restaurant and bar called Charlie’s just steps away ! Very talented. Would highly recommend their wonderful space and we hope to return again. Many thanks ! Cathey and Mark

    Mark2018-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • An amazing find. The bungalow is right on the water. We fell asleep each night to the sounds of waves crashing against the lagoon. Nicole and Kahiki are welcoming hosts who know Rarotonga inside and out. We loved their friendly dogs as well. If we are lucky enough to travel back to the Cook Islands we would be more than happy to stay again!

    Katie2017-04-04T00:00:00Z
  • Nicole and Kahiki’s Beach Bungalow is a wonderful place to stay. It is beautifully decorated and is in such a gorgeous spot. The snorkeling right from the bungalow is incredible. We were especially thrilled to swim with a giant turtle for about 15 minutes. We went to dinner at the Nautilus and listened to Kahiki perform. What a treat! We highly recommend staying here.

    Enjoy the beauty of our tropical Island in the shades of the mountains + 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 chicken is included to make you fit for your exciting day. Free Airport transfer!
    The little house is one of three absolutely family friendly cottages 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". Bedrooms: 1 double bedroom, 1 bedroom with 2 single beds (separate entry but also connected to main bedroom), 1 fold out sofa in living area. If you travel as a group book have a look at the other cottages as well and ask for our special group discount.
    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.
  • Die Unterkunft von Odette und Joe war super! Sie liegt an der hinteren Straße der Insel, in einer wunderschönen Umgebung. Das Haus ist gut ausgestattet, das Frühstück war sehr lecker und abwechslungsreich und die Gastgeber haben sich sehr gut um uns gekümmert. Wir waren wirklich zufrieden und würden es jedem empfehlen.

    Petra2017-04-16T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at Joes and family was fantastic real farm stay , all you need is scooters to take you around the island everything else is there thank you for your hospitality love Monika and John

    Monika2016-06-01T00:00:00Z
  • Joe went out of his way to make sure we were catered for in every way, from airport pickup/drop during late hours, getting us to where we needed to be on the island, providing a fantastic continental breakfast spread and a general helpful attitude during our stay.

    Brent2016-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks to both Joe and Odette my stay in rarotonga was an absolute treat! They are extremely accommodating and helpful , and put on a lovely breakfast to help fuel your day. The studio is well kept and cosy too. highly reccommend :-)

    Karen2016-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Joe and Odette's little farm was awesome! They're so lovely people and we really enjoyed talking and eating with them. Both gave us a lot of local information and they told us funny stories. We enjoyed fresh "nu's", dragon fruits, paw paws and our favorite - the passion fruits. The breakfast was perfect! The bungalow was perfect for 2. Eventhough it was so hot during our stay we had a very good fan in the bedroom and mosquito nets on all windows. The bungalow is very modern, clean and we had the opportunity to watch some dvd on the tv or take a book from the shelf. We loved all the animals! We would definetly come back and totally recommend this farm!

    Julia2017-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Jo and Odette are absolutely wonderful hosts. The space we stayed in was beautiful and Odette put on an amazing breakfast. My partner and I felt very fortunate we got to meet this lovely couple.

    Georgia2017-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Loved our stay here. The accommodation is beautiful, and the farm is lovely. Joe and Odette went above and beyond to provide a unique Cook Island experience; with tasty breakfast, great conversations, tips how to get around and what to see and do. We felt like we were able to get the most out of Rarotonga with their help. Also you must go eat at the tea house, it is amazing!!

    Alexis & Russell2016-06-08T00:00:00Z
  • It's hard to put into words how great this place was. It was so peaceful and serene, you can hear the distant crash of waves, see the sunrise over the palm trees, and be greeted by coconut and fresh fruit for breakfast. Our hosts were so amazing, truly some of the best people we've met and loved spending the morning getting to know them and their helpers. Their knowledge of Rarotonga and helping us get the most of our trip was the best! My wife who was hesitant that it was a farm stay absolutely loved her time there and is already talking of our next trip here! The kids loved helping with the animals and feeding them and walking around the beautiful gardens. You will not regret staying at this place!

    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.
  • Great place to stay!!

    Alen2018-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • 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
  • What an amazing place - a home away from home! Lydia and Mama Puna has made my stay that much more memorable in Rarotonga by being helpful and accommodating. The place is in a good location and has easy access to the beach across the street; it is also near Avarua with plenty of markets and shopping. I can’t wait to come back and stay with Lydia and Mama Puna. Missing you both!

    Alvelyn2018-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect place for single travellers. Lydia is a great host and very generous. Location is right in the middle of everything, with the beach right in the opposite of the street and close to down town.

    Monika2018-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • What a wonderful family... Ive stayed there twice now... Perfect location. Host family are beautiful people.....

    Shaun2018-03-23T00:00:00Z

    Victòria2017-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Lydia's place was great. She made me feel welcome and at home. I already consider her my family in the Cook Islands. Her home is about a minute walk, or less to the beach and shops are within reasonable distance as well.

Described by previous guests as tranquil, private, serene, idyllic and earthy-green grass and flora.
    We're not surrounded by other resorts or accommodation places but have local neighbours. We all get on well and respect each others space & privacy. 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".
  • I just returned home from a two week stay at Ariana, Kylie and Marshall made me feel right at home. Besides keeping the bungalows spotless, and the grounds well maintained, they are full of tips on where to go and cool things to do. I seriously did not want to leave!

    Matt2015-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Ariana garden bungalows, Kylie and Marshall are very friendly and easy to approach, they are always happy to help with recommendations about activities to do and places to go. Our bungalow was very clean and comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped. Loved the beautiful gardens and the pool. Situated 200m off the main road gives it a peaceful setting, the only noise you hear is the rooster. Because there is no swimming beach nearby it’s best to rent a bicycle or scooter, or take the bus. Being a small island it’s easy to get around even by bike and I prefer to stay off the beaten track and experience the real Rarotonga. Thanks again Kylie and Marshall for a great stay and our outing to the Whatever bar.

    Gabriele2015-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • Husband & I loved our private bungalow. It was an excellent location to get around the island. It was clean and comfort. The hosts were fantastic and informative. We absolutely loved it. Can't wait to be back

    Cristal2017-04-07T00:00:00Z
  • Ariana garden is a lovely location, a short walk from super brown - one of the few 24/7 supermarkets on Raro. It has a picture perfect backdrop, a lovely cool pool to relax in as well as a games room with books, and a mix games. Thanks for the short stay, we wish we booked for longer!

    Matthew2018-05-22T00:00:00Z
  • What a great place. Exceptional hosts, value for money and excellent location. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The kids loved the chickens running around. Some with baby chicks. They also enjoyed an afternoon at the pool swapping stories with Kylie and Marshall.

    George2017-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay with Kylie, and felt very (Email hidden by Airbnb) munication was excellent, and Kylie had suggestions and tips for us throughout our stay. The pool was wonderful, with lounge chairs and an outdoor bbq. We went for a couple hikes, and the bus stops just at the end of the street. The grocery store on the corner had everything we needed for snacks, groceries and packed lunches.

    Caitlin2017-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Kylie & Marchall run a beautiful, peaceful, quite part of Cook Island paradise. The self-contained cottages are within short drive of everything but far enough away to be a relaxing retreat. A big bonus was the fresh fruit supplied my the hosts from their own tropical fruit trees – the best passion fruit ever. The great price leaves you a budget for all the other Island activities and you won't find better hosts on Raro.

    Mike2014-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at the Ariana Garden Bungalows was great! The grounds were beautiful and the room was spacious and comfortable. Our hosts were friendly and welcoming - Kylie even gave us the run down of the island upon arrival. Thank you for your hospitality!! -Marisa

    RAROTONGA, COOK ISLANDS, Острова Кука

    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 also have a one bedroom unit next door (listed under Paradise Escape Unit 1) if you need to accommodate additional guests.
  • Lynette’s & Grant’s place is wonderful! They are extremely communicative, very helpful on giving tips on what to do, and have everything you will need. Clean towels. Fresh clean sheets. Nice HOT WATER! (That can be rare) I will strongly recommend staying at Lynette & Grant’s!

  • We had an amazing stay at Paradise Escape. The location was great, as we had a moped we could zip back and forth to town and Muri beach no problem, but the beach right by the place is perfect too and an excellent spot for snorkeling. Lynette and Grant were great hosts and lovely people, even offering us some local beer and meeting us in town for a drink in our last night. We’ll definitely be back if we return to Rarotonga, we miss Idaho and Big Eyes already! Thanks Lynette and Grant for a lovely stay.

  • 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

  • Todo genial. Buenos anfitriones y la casa inmejorable. El único problema fueron los gallos, que te despiertan cada dos por tres, pero están por toda la isla, así que no es problema de los hosts.

    Jose2017-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • Lynette and Grant were kind and welcoming, and willing to provide what we needed to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. It was nice to have a fan in the room and snorkeling gear for use down the road at Aroa beach!

    Gemma2019-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Worth the stay can definitely recommend staying here will not be disappointed

    Twin2017-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • A couple of lovely hosts and a very clean and comfortable room in the middle of Rarotonga. Room was well equipped and very nice to stay in, Lynette and Grant and fun to hang out with and very friendly, shared a drink with us and they also helped us with renting a scooter and gave great tips about the island. Location is within 15 min scooter ride from Muri and 10 min ride from airport, very nice food on the corner of the main and dirt roads. Big thumbs up!

    Michal2017-07-13T00:00:00Z
  • Lynette and Grant were very friendly and generous hosts. They gave me a lovely introduction to life in Rarotonga. The unit was very clean and well laid out...and only a 5 minute walk from the beach!

    Amazing place to stay in Rarotonga. Best price, Best place, Best holiday, Great memories and Great hosts
    Fully self contained beach front studio unit situated in Arorangi on the western side of Rarotonga with magnificent sunsets and ocean views from the top deck while you sip on your favourite beverages, directly behind to the east are the lush green mountains with volcanic rock faces and typical red/pink sunrises in the early morning, The white sand beach and aqua blue lagoon is great place to relax, Guests can hire our Kayaks for $10 per hour (when the tides are right) , sun bath , swim and snorkel or just dream each day away and leave the crazy outside world behind you, Welcome to what is known and loved as "The last paradise on earth.
    Next to Lukuleah Retreat on the left is the popular Waterline beach restaurant and bar, on the right side is Saint Marys Catholic Church which is very popular with tourists who come to listen to the beautiful Polynesian singing , there are restaurants within walking distance along the white sandy beaches and for those who wish to rent scooters or a car during their stay there is BT bike hire Ltd across the main road from Lukuleah Retreat, as usual the neighbourhood is buzzing with friendly smiling locals .
  • This was our 4th stay in Rarotonga and this is by far the best accommodation we've had. Perfect for a peaceful, quiet & relaxing holiday. The beach is quiet with good snorkelling and sun all day. There is complete privacy all around the property: it is down a long driveway and the only neighbours are a restaurant, church and the hosts who are friendly, quiet and respectful of privacy. We also loved their sweet dog Wendy who is all too keen to make friends with the guests. A full kitchen allowed us to cook all our meals and enjoy them out on the deck overlooking the beach. Very spacious with lots of cupboard space, shelving and drawers for putting away your belongings, good shower, comfortable bed, mosquito netting on most windows and a washing machine. Absolutely nothing to complain about. We will be back again.

    Estelle2016-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • 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!

    Florian2017-12-11T00:00:00Z
  • We are regular visitors to Rarotonga and this was our first time staying at Lukuleah Retreat. The accommodation was just as it is described and the photos are very accurate. It is a great unit for a couple and very spacious. Philip and Lilibeth were very welcoming and helpful whenever needed. Having pets of our own we loved meeting their puppy Ana who has a lovely nature. The unit is next door to the Waterline Restaurant and close to other restaurants and bars. You don't have to walk far. It is fully self contained with a bbq on the deck so you don't need to eat out all the time. Philip and Lilibeth live behind the unit but aren't intrusive but if you need anything they are happy to help. Great value and right on the beach. We will definitely be back. Thanks for having us. :)

    Margie2018-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • Exactly as it said on the tin! Great location - very uncrowded position yet within easy reach of shops and restaurants . One of the best restaurants on Rarotonga is next door on the beach but you would never have known if you judged by disruption to the peaceful ambience of Lukeuleah - may have occasionally seen somebody arriving for dinner along the beach or a few refrains from the piano or the guitar but that was it. Philip and Lillibet were outstanding hosts and we have no hesitation in recommending them.

    Stephanie2018-05-18T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our short relaxing stay at Lukuleah Retreat. We found the accomodation exactly as described here; just some palmtrees have to be passed to get from the appartment to the nearly private beach, about 20 meters away. From time to time someones passes by, having a walk along the beach or visiting the wonderful little restaurant next door. Apart from that, the beach was ours and we enjoyed sunbathing, snorkeling or simply relaxing below the palm trees. You can take a bath in the sandy parts of the warm laguna, while swimming is hardly possible as the water is shallow and there are corals everywhere, but this is true for all Rarotonga. Don't forget your snorkeling gear - you can start watching amazing colorful fish, underwater plants and other laguna life directly in front of you. The appartment offers plenty of space, everything you need (including barbecue and washing mashine) and a wunderful veranda for sunny and rainy days. Apart from the facts, the hosts Lilibeth and Philipp as well as their lovely family dog Wendy are super nice and cared about everything we needed. They organized taxi pickup from and to the airport, booked restaurants, gave us tips along the island and we had wonderful talks with them. We all enjoyed our stay at Lukuleah and friendly recommend it to anybody searching for a quiet and friendly space away from touristic Muri.

    Frank2017-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • 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
  • 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
  • Lukuleah is in a great area, set off the road it's private and quiet, and there is a perfect swimming beach right out front where you get beautiful sunsets every night. We had a lovely restful holiday here and made great use of the well equiped kitchen and BBQ. Philip and Lilibeth are wonderful hosts, they are always available if you need anything. We will be back for sure!

    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).
  • 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
  • Peaceful and private, great little spot with everything you need. Thanks for a great stay.

    Pauline2016-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • I recommend Kihana‘s Hideway. It‘s a very cozy apartment with a very nice view from the balcony. From there you can enjoy your breakfast or your dinner with an ocean view! The apartment is as described and it looks like in the pictures. Glenn and Mona are very friendly, helpful and were happy to give me any advice concerning the island. Meitaki ma‘ata!

    Kevin2018-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • Glenn was a great host! He picked us up from the airport in the early hours of the morning. Good location and nice modern place to stay at an affordable price! Would highly recommend!

    Kate2017-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • Glenn ist ein netter Gastgeber. Er hat uns vom und zum Flughafen geführt, ist mit uns die anfliegenden Jets anschauen gegangen und hat uns eine frische Papaya gebracht. Das Apartment ist gut eingerichtet. Leider hat das Mobiliar unter dem feuchten Klima aber ziemlich gelitten. Es riecht alles sehr feucht, das Bad war ziemlich schmutzig und auf Krabbeltiere muss man auch gefasst sein. Wer aber unkompliziert ist, eine eigene Küche und tolle Terrasse schätzt ist hier richtig. Mit einem Motorrad ist man schnell bei jedem möglichen Strand und Restaurant.

    Andrea2017-05-07T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was great - but we especially loved the deck (sunset views!) with the gas grill, the comfortable bed, and the friendly kitty who occasionally came to visit! We really appreciated Glenn picking us up and taking us to the airport and the late check-out he was able to provide for us. Wonderful place on Raro!

    Ariel2017-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Mona picked us up at the airport very early and took us to the supermarket.. so great availability and courtesy! Place is surrounded by a beautiful garden and some local cute animals. Kitchen is fully equipped for you to prepare breakfast or lunch/dinner. A nice washing machine is available as well. We are very satisfied

    Sebastiano2018-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • Glenn's place was great- They have built a cut little house off their main house which we stayed in. Had everything we needed, Glenn picked us up from the airport and helped us get a scooter the next day. Much nicer than staying at the resorts! Cheers!

    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.
  • Dividimos nuestra estancia en Islas Cook entre Rarotonga y Aitutaki. Elegimos Nirvana Bungalow para alojarnos en Rarotonga. Kristina nos organizo el traslado del aeropuerto al bungalow lo que fue muy cómodo para nosotros. Esta bien ubicado cerca de un supermercado y gasolinera, a 5 min de la playa y a 5km de Muri. Fue un detalle dejarnos aceite, sal, jabón de platos y algunas cosas que se agradecen mucho cuando llegas. Lo negativo: Cuando llegamos nos sorprendimos por el estado del bungalow ya que el exterior no estaba muy cuidado ni pintado de colores como en las fotos; las ventanas no tienen cristales y la consecuencia era que hacia frío por las noches , había muchas corrientes y se oían todos los animales (perros, pájaros y demás) lo que no dejaba dormir muy bien y los gallos cada mañana a las 6am te despertaban; gotera en terraza y muchas hormigas. Por último, comentar que no conocimos a Kristina, nos dijo que nos dejaba las llaves en la puerta y que vendría a saludarnos otro día pero no fue así. Fue un poco extraño para nosotros que no nos recibiera ni explicará nada...

    Maria2018-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • 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
  • Staying at Nirvana Bungalow was the icing on a beautiful trip to Rarotonga. Not only was the place relaxing, close to the beach and some of the most amazing scenery I have seen; it is also located on the quieter side of the island making it the perfect spot for optimal relaxation, unwinding and escaping from the hustle and bustle of wherever you are coming from. Kristina and her family are so warm and friendly, they made me feel right at home. Thank you so much for everything Kristina, I really appreciate it.

    Makanaka2017-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Nirvana is close to some of the island's best beaches for swimming and snorkelling. We really liked the location. There are not many options for eating out within walking distance, so a scooter, car or bike is a must, especially on weekends when the bus service is limited. The nearby Wigmores store is very well stocked and we enjoyed eating on the beach at Vaima's restaurant. The bungalow is simple but comfortable, neat and clean, and the courtyard is very nice and private. There are a lot of roosters in the area, and geckos inside so bring earplugs! The bungalow could be better equipped for cooler weather. We had some issues with water temperature, and the bed only had a light cover, so we had some chilly nights. We didn't meet Kristina during our 11 day stay, and communication was difficult at times as we had to find wifi hotspots to make contact and replies were sometimes slow.

    Anna2017-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • Kristina's place was absolutely perfect. My partner and myself stayed for 4 nights , for our second holiday trip on the island. The place is well located, across the road to the beach, 20min cycling to Muri but only few min from the best snorkelling spot of the island. Few restaurants are around and within 5-10min by car (30min walk is Charlie's Cafe). The house itself was thoughtfully made by Mark (inspirations from around the world's architectures), spotless clean, well furnished and had all the necessaries. Is also provided a TV with few movies on a hard drive. It has a closed little outdoor space to leave bikes or surfs outside. Kristina and Mark were welcoming, kind, friendly and ready to help. We recommend the place for couples who are looking for a clean space and don't mind being slightly away from Muri / restaurants etc... For experienced surfers, the Avaavaroa passage is just in front of the house ! Pretty much every local did not recommend as the strong current channeling in the passage post mid-tide makes it challenging to paddle back to the shore + extremely shallow (almost dry reef at the end of the wave)... but is was safe and worked great at low tide with 1.5-2m SSE swell and no wind.

    Jules2018-05-26T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely clean and tidy place. We loved the outdoor area. There were plenty of fans for when it got hot. The fridge was a great size for taking advantage of the fresh fruit and vegetables. All in all a lovely stay.

    Lesley2018-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • Fabulous little Bungalow on the most beautiful side of the island. Owners just next door if you need anything (like when I got locked out!!), but otherwise you won't hear from them at all. Fully equipped, even coffee and essentials in the fridge for your use! Our favorite part was the hard drive full of movies and documentaries to keep us occupied on the odd rainy day. The value for money was amazing, and we'd come back in an instant! Many thanks x

    Laura2016-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • Kristina and Mark were fantastic hosts, full of local knowledge and tips. The bungalow was the perfect size with everything we needed in it. We'll be back for another holiday !

  • The highlight of Emm's place is the covered porch facing the lagoon, and the cool breezes. Comfortable bed. Very nice to have a washer. Ura, the property manager was very welcoming and accommodating. She brought us papayas, gave us a lift to the Christian church on Sunday to hear the singing, and accommodated early check in and late check out. Offered great suggestions of local offerings. Kitchen was well equipped for cooking your own meals. Muri beach is an ideal location if you do not have a car, since you have everything you need within the approximate 1 km length of muri beach: night market, restaurants, small grocers, water sports, coffee, etc. Island bus picks up once an hour. Cottage is very private. Thanks Emm & Ura

    Steve2017-03-31T00:00:00Z
  • This was a perfect spot in the middle of paradise - beach on the doorstep, shops and food close by. We couldn't have asked for more!

    Antoinette2017-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • 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.

    Kayla2018-05-05T00:00:00Z
  • 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!

    Liz2017-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • We felt at home from the moment we arrived at Emm’s place. The directions we had made everything very smooth and Ura was lovely, making sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. This is an absolutely fantastic location. There was a constant steady breeze keeping us comfortable anytime we relaxed on the porch looking out at the spectacular view. It’s within walking distance of most necessities and there is a scooter hire minutes away as well. Scooters are inexpensive to rent and to run and are the best way to get around. Everything else on the island was amazing. Scuba diving with Pacific Divers on the reef and shipwrecks with 30-40m visibility. There’s an abundance of marine life. We found plenty of tropical fish, moray eels and even a little sea snake while snorkeling in the lagoon right in front of the house. Game fishing was excellent and we caught yellowfin tuna, wahoo and barracuda (not great for eating in some places but here the barracuda was surprisingly good on the bbq). Everyone on the island was very friendly and welcoming and we really did not want to leave. We will be back without doubt and highly recommend Reihana to singles or couples.

    Mike2018-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay. Awesome location, right in the beach!

    Julie2017-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • If you want place that has Muri beach within footsteps from a beautiful veranda (and view), then Emm’s place. We were within walking distance of the night market but yet far enough away from all the touristic chaos. The home is spacious and has everything you need to relax and get into island time. Thank you Emm for sharing your home.

    Antonios2018-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Outstanding location literally 10 metres from the waters edge where you can jump in and snorkel out to the islands. Really quiet part of Muri Beach yet only 2 min walk to shops and bars etc. House has everything you need including wash machine and all the cooking utensils you would need. Lots to do within close proximity or simply sit on the deck and watch the world go by. Our 4 year old loved playing with all the chickens, hermit crabs and dogs. Definitely go for a snorkel at Fruits of Raro which is a short drive. Would recommend a hire car so you can cruise around and check out everything the island has to offer. Can get a little warm inside so keep all the windows open.

  • Perfect place to stay on Raro! Private pool, fruit from the trees in the garden, loads of food in the fridge for breakfast, away from the main road. It can be windy in raro in winter but Sam and Talei's place is perfectly sheltered with still loads of sun so we enjoyed the lovely pool even on windy days. This place is better than a five star hotel, you have everything you need and Sam and Talei are the best hosts. They have thought of everything so you just need to show up. Breakfast, snorkels, filtered water, bicycles, laundry facilities with washing powder...They live in the house next door if you need them but the studio still feels very private. It is also big for a studio. I would recommend hiring a scooter or car to make the most of the island. Hire company was a short walk from Sam and Talei's place. If we make it back to Raro we will stay here for sure. Thanks again Sam and Talei :)

    Catriona2018-07-04T00:00:00Z
  • Paradise on earth. Our trip to Rarotonga was wonderful in all aspects. The Inave Oasis is aptly named, a little bit of private paradise in the middle of the greater paradise that is Raro. Sam and Talei are simply wonderful people. If I could give the oasis 6 stars, I would.

  • I highly recommend staying at the Inave Oasis! You won’t regret it. Trust me when I say that everything was amazing... bed, pillows, bikes and the pool.... the list could go on and on. We had such a great time and the only bad thing was leaving. They were both great hosts, quick to respond and ready to help in any way. It was a dream and we can’t wait to come back!

  • Talei and Sam were the most amazing hosts and completely made my trip to Raro. Their place is lovely. Clean, modern and private and the plunge pool is the best! It had everything we needed, plus had a shop at the bottom of the street which was open until 10pm, 3 beach bar/restaurants within very short walking distance, great breaky/coffee spot within walking distance and the best fish and chips on the island also 5 mins down the road. We stayed at a couple of quite expensive villas/resorts while we were in Raro aswell and my only regret was that we didn't stay at Inave Oasis the whole trip! It was so way nicer, way better priced and the hosts were the best! Couldnt fault anything x

    Ashleigh2018-04-01T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean and modern unit with so much offered (food including fresh fruit, snorkel, bikes, speakers etc etc). Very friendly people who went above and beyond for me. Just beware that the unit is not on the road signposted Inave road, its one street over to the right.

    Holly2018-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • 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
  • We highly recommend this amazing place - truly unique, clean, comfortable & private. It is definitely a great place and has everything for a fantastic stay, even (Hidden by Airbnb) s, plunge pool, bikes & an outdoor shower. We suggest hiring a scooter or car for your stay for ease of exploring the island brilliant for our honeymoon

    Clean & Modern Self contained Studio with own bathroom and kitchenette. We like to leave our guests to enjoy their privacy in their own space, however we're there to help with any queries or suggestions. We offer a free continental breakfast of cereal and local fresh fruit (Seasonal) on the first day. Our unit is also fully screened to keep the mozzies out. Max Pax for our Unit is two guests. Our place is suitable for couples, business travelers and solo travelers.
    Located only 6 minutes drive from the local town, 12 minutes drive from the airport and a 5 minute walk away from a 24 hour convenient store/takeaway and bus stop. We have a Bluesky Wifi Hotspot available inside the room. Guests can purchase the wifi vouchers from the 24HR convenient store just down the road or on arrival at the airport.
    The area which our place is situated is a very safe and peaceful area. We are situated on the backroad of Tupapa approximately 6 minutes to the town centre by car/motorbike, and approximately 20 minutes walk. There is a bus stop and 24 hour convenient store 5 minutes walk away on the main road.
  • 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.

    Sebastian David2017-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely one bed apartment with breakfast cereals and fruits included. Location was good for the town but not near a swimming beach. Did not have much contact with the host but this was not needed. Drove us to the bus stop when we left which was very kind.

    Anna2017-12-19T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful private place with a good Wi-Fi hot-spot, a big fan in tand a big comfortable bed; very clean, spacious, 2min by walk close to the bus stop, to the petrol station and to 24h shop. In the same building of Mariana, you could meet her and her family; nice people that if you need can help and suggest you for all the things to do in Cook Islands. Next time in Rarotonga I'll return in this house FOR SURE. Thank you, a big hug from Italy

    Mauro2017-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent place to stay, specially if you have your own transportation. Very private and clean. Secludeded but close to everything. Host very courteous and friendly. Great place to stay.

    Victor2017-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place to stay for two. Great location if you have a scooter as it's a good distance between different parts of the island. Bus stop is also close by. Would stay again if back. A+

    Hayden2018-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • Lieu exceptionnel !... Esthétique, propreté, hospitalité caractérisent l'ensemble avec bonheur...

    Philippe2017-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • The garden studio is an awesome place to stay at Rarotonga. Plenty of room for 2 people and everything's really clean. Mariana is a lovely woman and helped us a lot with her advises on what to do around the island. I would definitley stay there again.

    Amelie2018-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • It wasn’t until I had arrived but Raro did I realise that I had made the biggest rookie mistake : book my accommodation for the day after my arrival, therefore leaving me “homesless” for the night but luckily Mariana had prepared my room a day earlier in preparation for this kind of mistake! Raita was fast to respond and was very helpful and easy to talk to and Mariana, like every grandmother, was just the sweetest! A beautiful home and a fantastic studio, I definitely got great value for my money! Definitely coming back for another visit to Raro and I already know where I’ll be staying!

  • Had the best stay here. We felt at home here. Our son ran around with the chickens. Evita brought him some toys as well as a USB stick with movies which were all really appreciated. Beautiful view which also catches a nice breeze. Well equipped with home essentials. If we needed anything we just asked. We made friends with the neighbours who also looked after us and welcomed us into their home. Located on the quieter side of the island with beautiful beaches within walking distance. Overall a great stay, highly recommend. Thank you

    Teresa2018-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • THE place to stay ! We had such a great time in this cosy house nestled on the hill. The 24/7 supermarket is 5mn walk away, the bus 2mn, the beach 2mn... you have everything you need in and out the house, at an amazing price.. Josephine, the loveliest host in the pacific, was here all along our stay, and provided everything we need. And at last but not a least : WHAT A VIEW ON THE LAGOON ! We’ll definitely come back here one day :)

    Thomas2018-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • 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
  • Really beautiful place in quiet area. House is new and has all the facilities you need. Perfect for a family! The best security dog called Spike who patrols regularly. Also no need to set the alarm, trained roosters outside for that! Kitchen with all you need, awesome bathroom with lots of little extras! Also milk and water in fridge. BBQ on veranda! We are so thankful for all the help with airport pick up (cheap) and quick email response about all and nothing! We recommend all guest to stay here, and also be aware of the time difference when you make your bookings! We managed to check in before we were supposed to... So sorry, and thank you for sorting us out anyways ♥️. Kia Orana

    Ann Jeanette2019-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful home! Great view and suprisingly affordable. Had everything we needed. Comfy bed and nice breeze from the bedroom on a hot night, just beautiful. Used the bbq and was really relaxing. Our kids were playing outside and sitting on the porch watching them was really nice. We played a few games that were there and we enjoyed it very much. Loved watching the chickens and roosters on the lawns was quite entertaining. Close to the shops and beach. Thank you for having us.

    Lisa2018-10-21T00:00:00Z

    Rarotonga, Острова Кука

    Our house is situated in an elevated position overlooking the area of Ngatangiia - a 5 minute drive from popular Muri Beach. It’s an easy stroll to the coastline, the island bus stop and shop. The house has all the amenities of a substantial home, including outdoor dining area, outdoor seating, sun-loungers & BBQ etc. The large bedroom with super-king bed has a ranch-slider opening to a secluded deck. Tea & coffee provided and continental breakfast available on request. Free airport transfers!
  • Noel & Katrina’s home is sooo beautiful, spotlessly clean and very spacious. FREE airport transfers is a must in Raro as there’s no house number or street sign. It’s only 5 minutes walk to the beach. Noel & Katrina are gracious, accomodating and very caring in so many ways- Noel picked us up at 1AM with fresh,fragrant leis, it’s around 15 min drive from airport to their place; as soon as we arrived Noel said “ welcome to your home”- which made us really feel welcomed. The room is exactly the same in the photos if not better, the sliding door opens to our own litte porch, the room is overlooking the trees- very relaxing sight to wake up to; we even have sparkling wine with a welcome & birthday card for my husband- very thoughtful of Noel & Katrina. We were provided with 2 bath towels & 1 beach towel +facecloth for each of us & a Dove soap. Noel always made sure we fill up our bottles with filtered water; contacted our tours for confirmation of time then takes us there & picks us up after- with NO additional charge; helped us in arranging our car rental etc. Katrina is very kind to fold our dried clothes & empties our rubbish everday. We love our dinners & conversations with them and the green pawpaw salad with prawns Katrina especially made for us. It’s our first time to try airbnb and we are ABSOLUTELY pleased! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED accomodation & hosts !!! A 5 star rating!!! Would definitely like to come back!

    Ursula2018-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • Have never felt so welcomed and at home thanks to our beautiful hosts Noel and Katrina, highly recommended and is always there to help if ever needed.

    Agnes2018-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • We where welcomed like we were home, a fantastic place with some fantastic host :) Our best recommendations!

    Stefan2018-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Super friendly and hospitable! They went above and beyond and helped us so much! I would definitely recommend their place!

    Mandie2018-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • If you're a single or coupled traveler who wants an authentic experience of Rarotongan adventure and hospitality, then I implore you to stay with Noel & Katrina during your time in Rarotonga. With years of experience in the island's tourism industry and as local inhabitants, N&K have the greatest insights, recommendations, and connections around the island to help you have every experience you want on your holiday, from food to bars to entertainment to daytime excursions. They were incredibly accommodating, picking up my partner and myself at 2 a.m. from the airport, and opened up their comfortable and elegant home and family to us during our stay. There was always classy music, a peaceful ambiance and clean space, warm smiles, and a large, comfortable room to greet us when we returned from a day's adventure. Truly, our holiday in Rarotonga would not have been the same had we not stayed with N&K and we will always be grateful for their kindness, generosity, and friendliness while accommodating us. For ultimate relaxation and enjoyment on your time in Rarotonga, I highly recommend staying with this beautiful couple; you will not regret it.

    Pearl2018-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed for 6 days and loved every minute. Noel & Katrina were more than accommodating and were excellent hosts. They were not only happy to provide airport pickup & drop off after hours but also guided us around the island and gave us great food, hiking & snorkelling location tips. Our room and bathroom facilities were extremely clean & tidy. I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Rarotonga. Thanks Noel & Katrina!

The area is safe and very good for walks or bike rides right at the beginning 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.
  • Ingrid is a very friendly and helpful lady, who helped me a lot, gave me advices how to travel in the Rarotonga. Ingrid also picked me up when I have arrived in Rarotonga. Her home is a lovely place and I enjoyed a short stay. Ingrid is an excellent host and I had a great time chatting with her. Location was close to downtown and the airport. Thank you Ingrid, hopefully see you again in future!

    偉旭2017-06-07T00:00:00Z
  • Ingrid is friendly and helpful, but the place was very musty and old style.

    Susanne2017-06-18T00:00:00Z
  • Ingrid met me at the airport as I arrived quite late. She greeted me with a beautiful Ei flower necklace. She took me a quick spin round town and pointed out the main areas. Accommodation was perfect for my overnight stay, as I was catching a flight to Aitutaki the next morning. For a small fee Ingrid does airport transfers, this is great especially flight arrive late at night.

    Deirdre2018-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • This is a fantastic air BNB with lovely helpful hosts. Any questions/queries will be answered and they happily showed us around. The facilities are basic but fantastic value for money!

    Adelia2018-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • Enjoyed my stay. Arrived late at night and only spent one evening, but when I arrived everything I needed was ready. Communication was excellent and transport from airport was made a lot easier by Ingrid.

    Reder2018-04-17T00:00:00Z
  • We did not meet with Ingrid as we arrived at 1am. The studio was really clean and the room was really okay! The walls are really thin and we could hear our neighbours and the roosters in the middle of the night! It was okay for a night as the price was really cheap for the night.

    Adrien2017-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • Not a bad place to stay for an overnighter. It has all the amenities you need, one downside is the sheets did not seem to be clean

    Evelien2017-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • Ingrid' place is the authentic Rarotonga with a great garden set in spacious grounds. Pleasant walk to town and great value.

    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.
  • Kia Orana, Kricks studio is in a nice location next to the sea. The studio is well equipped and provides the guests with everything you could possibly need. The communication with our hosts was very fast and easy and we got a lot of tips and advice for our stay, which made the whole experience on Rarotonga even more enjoyable. Therefore, we can definitely recommend the studio and its host to other potential guests.

    Maximilian2018-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • Nice, clean and very quite place. Enjoy the sound of waves breaking on the shore as you sleep. :) The beach, even though close, is not for swimming. If you are a morning jogger you'll enjoy it quite much. Since it is a bit far from any restaurant or shop, I recommend it for the people that plan to spend most of the day out otherwise you'll be quite bored as there is no TV. Also, WiFi is not available (Blue Sky)

    Dusan2017-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • 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
  • Wunderschönes kleines Apartment, ein privater und ruhiger Rückzugsort mitten im Paradies. Alle waren überaus gastfreundlich und hilfsbereit, es fehlte an nichts. Die Lage ist super, direkt am Ozean, abends schläft man zum Klang der Wellen ein und in 5 Minuten ist man in Muri, einem der Hauptorte Rarotongas. Durfte am Tag meiner Abreise sogar die ganze Zeit in der Unkerkunft bleiben, obwohl mein Rückflug erst um 23:00 Uhr ging. Alles in allem kann ich die Unterkunft nur empfehlen!

    Mats2018-05-09T00:00:00Z
  • Krick and Greg are great hosts and their place is lovely, we would definitely recommend staying.

    Libby2017-07-19T00:00:00Z
  • The studio is beautiful, tastefully decorated and in a tranquil and quiet location. Krick is the perfect host! She made sure we had everything we needed and even left us fresh local fruit to enjoy! Would definitely recommend this place for anyone looking to relax and enjoy the island in a comfortable setting. Thanks Krick!

    Lucy2017-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Kricks place is nice and secluded with a beautiful wild beach right in front of it. To er around the island and any bigger shops (close one nearby) you will need a car or scooter - cars are easiest to hire right at the airport when you arrive at Avis as they also include a free drop off at the airport when you leave. Krick and Greg are very nice hosts.

    Lena2018-03-23T00:00:00Z

  • Great and lovely host Good location Very clean and comfortable Every think was perfect

    Stephanie2015-09-12T00:00:00Z

    Charlie2017-07-11T00:00:00Z

    Kelly2016-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing stay at Ariana Bungalows. Kylie and Marshall were so friendly and approachable, and gave us great advice about how to have the best experience while visiting Rarotonga. Our bungalow room was simple with a well equipped kitchen and separate living area. The surrounding grounds, pool and garden were beautiful and spotless. We loved the fruit from the garden. We loved staying here, and were sad to leave. Thank you for helping us to have an amazing holiday.

    Caitlin&Jon2015-12-04T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Ariana Bungalow. It became our little home away from home. We did a lot of cooking at the Bungalow which was great as they had all the utensils and plates that we would need. They also have an outdoor BBQ that you can use! The hosts were so kind and accommodating and made sure we were taken care of. The pool is also amazing and we loved the views of the mountains. I think our highlight from staying here was the fresh fruit. We enjoyed delicious papaya, passion fruit, coconut, avocado, bananas, and soursop during our stay. It was complimentary, right off of the tree, and so delicious! It is very helpful to have a car or scooter if you are staying here, but really for anywhere on the Island and the bus is expensive and not super convenient. You can hear the waves from Ariana Bungalow crashing against the reef, but there isn't any beach access nearby. So you will have to drive to the nearest beach. That was not a problem for us and we certainly enjoyed driving around the Island. The only thing we can think of was that you can feel the springs in the beds, but we are young so it didn't bother us much. Just an FYI in case that type of stuff bothers you or you have a bad back. But we would come back to stay at Ariana Bungalow in a heartbeat. It is the best price, location, and experience on the Island. You will enjoy your time here as well I am sure!

    Brittany2019-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • We spent two weeks at Ariana Bungallows and really liked quiet atmosphere of a well maintained property. No noisy restaurants or neighbours around provided us with the choice, we could get there (the noise) within 5-10 minutes drive. Walking distance to grocery store was really important before we rented a car. Marshall and Kylie are always available when you need them, friendly and informative. Would definitely recommend this host.

    Dmitri2017-04-22T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect! Kylie and Marshall are such lovely people and really made us feel welcome - they really go above and beyond! The bungalows and gardens are beautiful and so peaceful and really are a slice of paradise that you do not get in a resort. We will be back, 8 days was not enough!

    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 listed as Paradise Escape if you are needing to accommodate extra guests.
  • 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.

  • Great in every way - location, amenities, and the hosts.

    Shona2018-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • 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
  • awesome stay. this place is very clean and tidy and had everything we needed. thank you Lynette, you were so friendly and made us feel at home. your wee place is so close to everything on you need. will definitely be back.

    Hannah2018-05-09T00:00:00Z
  • Lynette and Grant and their fur babies were great hosts, welcoming, cheerful and lovely to chat with. Location was the best! We snorkelled everyday with the gear provided which saved us havjng to hire or bring our own. Our accommodation was comfortable and clean and we appreciated the smaller touches including plenty of towels being available. All in all, it was great and we hope to be back soon x

    Tammy2019-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • Lynette and Grants place is perfect. It was a few minutes walk to an amazing beach where they provided us snorkelling gear too. It had everything we needed and was a perfect little getaway. Definitely would recommend and would most definitely go back. Happy as!

    Helen2018-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to stay, 200m from the beach, on the sunset side of the island. Lynette was very accomodating with our super late (1am) arrival.

    Natalie & Fred2018-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • If you're looking for nice clean place, value for money and a fantastic host we highly recommended Lynette and Grant's place. The beach is a short walk across the road and the Rarotonga resort is also withing walking distance. Thank you Lynette and Grant for a great stay. Francis & Virginia.

    Teres Residence is a recently built large spacious 4 bedroom home just 200 meters from one of the best beaches on Rarotonga, great for Snorkeling and swimming. The House is great for entertaining with two decks both catching the morning and evening sun. With an extra TV Room/bunk room this house is great if you are travelling with children or large groups. It is within walking distance to the New Moana Restaurant and Little Polynesian Restaurant.
    The house had four bedrooms, two bathrooms, 2 x queen beds, 1 x king bed where the ensuite consists of a private outdoor shower and a bunk/tv room great for the kids.
  • The house was clean, spacious and had everything we needed. The bedrooms were laid out well. The house is a 2 minute walk from the beach and the kayak was a bonus! Snorkeling out front was some of the best we found. We truly loved our week there and highly recommend!

    Jennifer2018-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Teres Residence was an excellent home for our adult family (three double rooms but also has a fourth set up for children) holiday to Rarotonga. A modern well equiped house in at Titikaveka. Close to a fine beach, about 4km from Muri and a location a little away from the busier areas. All communication with Jenna and George very straight forward. Thanks for a house that enabled us to have a great holiday.

    Derek2018-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent location just a short walk from the beach up a quiet side road. The house was clean and tidy and perfect for our group with everything we needed for a fun and relaxing holiday. Jenna and George were fantastic hosts, quick to reply, and providing easy to follow instructions. A perfect spot for a Raro getaway!

    Kelly2018-06-17T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommend staying at Teres Residence. Great location with excellent access to an unspoiled private beach (1-2 minutes walk). Great that it wasn’t on the main road too - it made it very quiet and was more private than the places on the beach &/or main road. George and Jenna were also very helpful and accommodating hosts with lots of local tips they were happy to share. Very well equipped kitchen. Loved the outdoor showers (one accessed from outside the other from the ensuite bathroom). Lots of space for larger families. Kids loved being able to watch ESPN. Towels, snorkeling gear and a kayak available for guests to use. A cot, toys for little kids. A study desk for our 16 year old who had lots of homework to do. Great decks front and back of the house. Tips for Rarotonga - lots of good snorkeling locations close by to Teres Residence. Good food and SUP hire at Charlie’s (just up the road). Try Palace Burgers and Villie’s if you like burgers. Try the Muri night market for some yummy local foods. The island is 32km round trip in a car - hire one if you can. It gives you great flexibility. Best snorkeling we found was approx 100m west of the Fruits of Rarotonga shop (just up from Charlie’s). Hundreds and hundreds of fish in one concentrated area. Just gorgeous. If you are looking for somewhere to go to relax, unwind and spend quality time together with family and/or friends definitely check out Rarotonga and Teres Residence.

    Marion2018-04-06T00:00:00Z
  • Had an amazing (Email hidden by Airbnb) munication and hospitality was great. Prefect location and home set up for the size group we had. The outdoor showers were an added bonus aswell as the filtered water from the fridge. Topped off our experience in Rarotonga with a bang. Thanks for the hospitality:)

    Grace2018-04-15T00:00:00Z
  • Jenna and Georges house was practically brand new and incredibly good value for money. It was about 50m from a really beautiful kid friendly beach which we used every day. The space was big and clean and was really user friendly for us and our two kids. Sometimes if felt pretty hot (as there are no fans or AC in the living room) but Jenna was super accommodating and got us an extra fan which helped heaps. Both Jenna and George were always a phone call away and were always so lovely to chat to. They gave great advice regarding places to visit, restaurants to go to etc. The entire experience was WAY better than staying in a a hotel and we would DEFINITELY love to return one day. Thank you guys for making our very first Cook Island experience so wonderful :)

    Lana2018-01-19T00:00:00Z

    Take your holiday in paradise at Mango Cottage, complete with all facilities and a great plunge pool to cool off on those warm days. Fully self contained 2 bedroom cottage located up a quiet lane just minutes from Muri Beach.
    Quiet, just off main Road. 100 metres from local shop. Walk to Muri Beach in 15 minutes or drive there in 2 minutes. Main town (Avarua) is a 10 minute drive only.
    In very quiet area, just off the main road and handy to the local shop.
  • We absolutely loved our stay in Rarotonga! The house was just as discribed. A nice clean home close to a beautiful Muri beach. We can't wait to come back again.

    Micah2018-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • We arrived to a warm welcome and made ourselves at home at the Mango Cottage. It is what most would say "basic" - very tidy and has the basic amenities. It is a good distance to Muri so you would pay to get a car from the airport- the shuttle was a waste of money. The plunge pool is deep but small and really just to cool off in the afternoon. Mango Cottage was a good place to relax but you do not feel pampered like you might at another place or resort. It is clean and has all that you need for a DIY holiday. Thank you Tony for the stay.

    Megan2016-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Really enjoyed my stay in Mango Cottage, it's a perfect little holiday home, nice and clean, very useful information guide given! Perfect size for a small family! Everything is only a short bus journey away! Thanks for making my stay in the Cook island easy. Hope to visit again. Thank you again Tony

    Leslie2017-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • Good little place for a family or group traveling together. Would recommend getting a car or scooter to get around as it's a bit of a walk to the nearest shops at Muri. No A/C so can get very hot, but there are fans. Overall nice place to stay. The only downside is the location being a bit away from everything.

    Mel2018-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Lindo lugar. Cerca del mar. La casa es muy comoda, tiene todos los utensillos necesarios. Anfitriones muy amables.

    Bel2018-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean and lovely place to stay. Although not on beachfront, pool makes up for it. Nice location, handy to Muri. Would recommend staying here 100%

    Beth2018-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • Nice straight forward clean and tidy place in a great location with great hosts. Great value for money, the pool is Perfect for a dip and has good shade over it. Get a car from mechanic over the road and supplies from shop just along the road and enjoy being treated like a local. short walk to muri ( eat at the mooring on the way past) makes this a perfect spot. The hosts are superb, very helpful. An all round great place, enjoy we did

    Te Ravaki Studio, ideal for those looking for a friendly and convenient getaway, located inland of Nikao. Close to both the busyness of town and the serenity of the local island life - Te Ravaki gives you the best of both worlds. Studio Double bed, bathroom, kitchen and double doors open out to a private decking for relaxing. Enclosed area with strategically placed fencing for your privacy. There is a Wifi Hotspot at your studio and vouchers can be purchased at Bluesky retailers.

Shared driveway and parking area. NOTE; We also have a 2 bedroom unit on the same property, check its availability out here - https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/29784448 Perfect for those with a group just a bit bigger than 2 :) Unfortunately however we do not provide deals if you were to book both simultaneously :(

Your closest neighbours are your hosts and happy to help if you have any small issues.
  • Definitely recommend this studio. Itinga will help you out flr anything and gives good advices. The location is good, 10min walking from the main road to catch the bus, groceries, hospital and airport. Place was tidy, modern, and well equipped.

    Michelle2018-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • This is a spacious studio unit with a great shower, a comfortable bed and handy to the Airport and Avarua. An excellent hostess and a pleasant place to stay when away from home.

    Richard2018-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay was wonderful in Te Ravaki North Studio. Such a great first impression of Cook Islands. Itinga and her family was so nice to us. The studio is beautiful, comfy bed, the bathroom is gorgeous. We would definently recommend this place, and if we are so lucky to come back to Cook Island, we would to stay here again.

    Maria2018-11-22T00:00:00Z
  • De locatie is wat ons betreft niet perfect maar het verblijf daarentegen heel goed. Een mooi en verzorgd eigen plekje, alles wat we nodig achtten was aanwezig. Fijne communicatie gehad met Itinga, goede gastvrouw!

    Marieke2019-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect studio for two. Excellent location. Itinga was so good to deal with. Quick responses and super friendly. Highly recommended A+++

    Nikao, Rarotonga, Острова Кука

    Five minutes from Pacific Resort is a small family road which leads to Kite Moana. Overlooking Rarotonga's fabulous Muri Lagoon, Kite Moana has beautiful balcony views of the Avana passage and the two atolls of Motutapu and Oneroa.
    A perfectly peaceful place to read or sit and sip. Kite Moana's large spacious balcony wraps around three sides of the house providing ample space for everyone to do nothing. Sliding doors from the balcony allow access to the main living area, the master bedroom and the oceans breeze coming off the lagoon. The main inside living area, is roomy and divided between the entertaining area the dining area and the modern kitchen. Views of Muri lagoon can be had through the large sliding doors from any vantage. The master bedroom also has sliding doors to the balcony giving views of the ocean and bush without having to get out of bed... and its own ensuite. The second bedroom has two singles in it making Kite Moana perfect for a family vacation. The house itself is surrounded by trees of Rarotonga's national flower the Tiare Maori (seven petaled gardinia) which flowers daily almost all year and has a beautiful scent. There is also a large mango tree on the property which is often laden with ripe mangoes in the summer.
    Beyond Kite Moana is Muri, walking distance to great beaches, restaurants, internet cafes, groceries, black pearls, swimming snorkeling and paddling and kayaking. And a swim away to your own atoll to explore.
  • Great space very comfortable and the location was excellent

    Sharon2019-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Good value and Muri beach is the place!

    Todd2017-05-19T00:00:00Z
  • We had a nice stay, such a great location short walk to Muri and beach, lots of space in the house :) it was perfect

    Angela2018-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay in this great holiday house. It's a generous size and the beautiful lagoon views were lovely to wake up to each morning. The house had everything we needed and Eddie was very friendly and helpful. An easy walk to the shops of Muri and the next door neighbour organises night paddle boarding in case you fancy an interesting activity.

    Paul2016-04-19T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place to stay. House was very tidy and is great for a small family. Huge deck around the place which is great to chill on. Great location. Not far from beach and shops. Would recommend to anyone looking for someone to stay.

    Franlisa2019-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Budget accommodation, nothing fancy but has everything you'd need. Water ran out at one stage but Eddie had it sorted in a few hours which was awesome. The deck was definitely the best part, cool and shaded. Arrival book said there was a safe but after searching the entire house we couldn't find it. Quiet at night time and a short drive to lots of good swimming spots. Bring earplugs if you're a light sleeper as the roosters are non stop all day and night!

    Nate2018-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Great location , comfy beds and good quality of seating inside and out. Lovely sunny morning deck with sneak peak of Muri Lagoon. Great value , Henrys transfers to and from airport excellent as well Definitely recommend to stay here

    Angela2017-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely apartment very close to the beach. Eddie provided us with info on travel to town which was very helpful. Great local eateries and only a short walk from the Muri night market which was amazing.

    Nevaeh Holiday Home is a recently renovated spacious 230 square meter (m2) home purposely built for enjoying the outdoors and entertaining those extra guest.

There is ample room on the deck and veranda to cater for an extra 25 guest comfortably, making our home ideal for large families and/or groups of friends.
    The decking and verandah open up into an expansive kitchen, dining and living room area. Our home is complete with all the comforts of home, including wifi, Moana sky tv, a 49" 4K Ultra HD Smart LED-LCD TV, 5.1 Channel 3D Blu-ray home theater system, stainless steel oven and stove, microwave, dishwasher, fridge freezer, clothes washer and dryer. For the warmer days and nights, there are ceiling fans in all three bedrooms including the dining and living room area.

We are just five minutes walk from the renowned Cook Islands Game Fishing Club. Also within 5 minutes walking distance is the 24 hour Super Brown convenient store and takeaway.
  • 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
  • I would definitely recommend this comfortable house. Desmond and his wife are nice and helpful hosts. His wife also speaks Chinese, which is a big surprise for us. The location is 5 mins drive or ride to the center, and 10-15 mins to Muri Beach, good for those who have driver's license and plan to rent a motorcycle. Rentals are available across the street. The house is large and comfortable, professionally cleaned. It also has enough kitchen items and some liquors which allows you to prepare for nice meals or drinks, which cuts cost on the island (and kill your evening time as well). Thanks a lot!

    2018-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • 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
  • 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
  • Thank you so much for this beautiful home Everything was perfectly Friends and I felt like family it was awesome

    Josephine2018-09-21T00:00:00Z

    Serge2018-06-29T00:00:00Z
  • 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
  • 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.

    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.
  • Perfect location in Muri! Apartment was very clean and modern and had everything you need. Super close to night markets, beach, cafes. Would stay here again.

    Nina2017-07-04T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent location, just a few steps from Muri beach and lagoon. The house is nicely set up, with everything you need. Beautiful banana trees behind the property rounded it out nicely. Sian's friend came and checked if everything was ok, otherwise we were left to relax in the beautiful Cook Islands weather. It might be worth noting that anywhere you stay in the Cook Islands, there will be wild chickens making noise in the early morning. It didn't bother us, but light sleepers might want to pack their ear plugs.

    Chris2017-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • This was a very cosy and clean studio with many homely touches that were much appreciated-eg a laundry on-site and an iron. Although it is on "air bread and breakfast" there was no breakfast supplied. We should have checked first, but no matter as there are fantastic venues within walking distance. Indeed,everything at Muri Beach is handy. Not exactly a 'hideaway" though, as adjacent to the coastal road, but still quiet. Veena at the office across the road was extemely helpful- "thank-you".RECOMMENDED.

    Susan2013-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • It's a budget holiday's solution, anyway a nice place to be and at the end we liked it very much

    Gualtiero2016-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in this Studio while visiting Rarotonga for a wedding which was in the Nautilus. It's in a great location, across the road from the beach and near several cafes & shops. The Studio was clean and modern. We loved being able to have all the windows open with the flyscreens keeping all the bugs out! Sian & Tracey are lovely to deal with and made the whole experience very easy. Its a bonus to be able to use the Laundry facilities too.

    Laura2016-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • Cute, private and quiet little one bedroom unit perfect for a Rarotonga holiday. Has everything you will need and its an easy walk to the beach, resorts, cafes and shops. Practically next door to LBV for your morning coffee and pastries!

    Matthew2018-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome location just across the road from Muri Beach (which we decided was the best spot in Raro to be based), this lovely unit with nice quiet surroundings was the perfect spot for a relaxed escape when my girlfriend and I visited. Has all the amenities you need and a great host who facilitated our transfers for us, so all was sorted even though we arrived in the middle of the night! Cheers

    Jeremy2013-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • Sian was very accommodating and welcoming throughout our stay and and during our booking - as there were a few changes that never seemed a problem. She was also easily contactable and helped answer all of our questions promptly. The accommodation has everything you need and is in a lovely spot on the island. My friend and I recommend this stay to anyone who's on a budget, is after a good off beach location and is after simple and easy accommodation. Thanks again for a great stay!

    THE AREA ~ We are located in Vaima’anga, on the southern side of Rarotonga. i'raro is 200m inland from one of the best beaches on the island and 150m away from the main road so it is quiet here. Occasionally the tranquility is disrupted by neighborhood dogs, chickens, goats and pigs but we live in close proximity with nature so its to be expected. Also, given our tropical climes, you may find friendly harmless geckos stopping for a visit. We are on the opposite side of the island to the airport and Avarua (the town and main shopping area) but as nothing is really that far on an island’s main road that circles 32km along its coast, it takes only 20mins by car to get to town from here. If you don’t fancy going that far, there is a 24hour supermarket just down the road and a couple of good restaurants and decent takeaway options that you can leisurely walk to in under 10mins. We are also not too far from Papua (formerly Wigmores) waterfall and the south entry/exit of the cross island trek. We think i’raro would be the perfect base for the intrepid explorer ~ those of you who would be out and about exploring all that the island has to offer, on foot, two wheels or four, enjoying our stunningly dramatic scenery and returning each day to a comfortable, stylish place to rest and recharge.
  • Hand’s down, the best Airbnb we have ever been to! Siai was amazing right from the start when she offered to pick us up from the airport at midnight. She gave us some great tips for our stay and even let us know about the amazing beach that was 2 minutes down the road from her place, words can’t describe how beautiful that beach was, perfect for snorkelling too! Our Airbnb was beyond perfect, comfy bed, lots of fresh fruit, a kitchen with literally everything you need to make a meal, peaceful surroundings, plenty of towels, bags to use, washing machine, I could honestly go on all day. The Airbnb is such a bargain for everything you get, I can’t recommend it enough! Forget all the fancy hotels, this Airbnb is where it’s at!!
