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.
  • This place is better than most of the hotel-rooms. I wouldn't have find a greater and more lovely host family than this. Your room is clean and you'll find all what you need. It's very fashionable and modern. If you have a problem or you need something, everyone is prepared to help. It's just a beautiful and lovely place.

    Alina2017-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • Best place! The flat is gorgeous and spotless, and Nick is such a great host. I would absolutely stay there again.

    Erin2017-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • 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
  • Nick’s place was fantastic value for money! We loved the setup and had no issues whatsoever. Would highly recommend staying at Nick’s place and found it much more affordable the resorts on the island (which we ended up visiting day by day for a bite to eat and a swim anyway!)

    Melissa2018-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Very cool place! It's tucked off the main road (would suggest renting a car to make things easier) and surrounded by the mountains. Nick and Linda are super nice and went out of their way to make our stay a good one. Would definitely recommend staying here!

    Andrew2018-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • WOW!! where to begin. If you are after a nice tidy affordable place to stay in that's tucked away in the hills amongst the native bush of Rarotonga then look no further, Nick and Linda's humble abode is the place to be. The photo's of the accommodation do not justify the good amount of space that has been provided. There is a beautiful view from Nick and Linda's top deck overlooking the distant sea. It's a 20min walk from town. Nick and Linda are super approachable and hospitable and went out of their way to make us feel like we were at home. They were more than happy to help give us guidance on local things to do and places to eat etc. We were well looked after staying with them! Seriously don't hesitate and book in now with Nick and Linda, you will not regret it! Great first Airbnb experience for us. Cant wait to go back someday.

  • 超級貼心的主人,我們剛一到送上了一大盤當地的水果(木瓜超好吃)屋子很乾淨,該有的一個不少,House Manual提供的信息也很有用。環境也很美,開門見山,周圍的鄰居人也很好。第一次來玩的朋友注意啦,Raro因為是基督教國家,週日除了個別加油站和bistro,基本上所有商店都3點關門,並且全天不賣酒,所以要是週日到的話記得先在機場的免稅店屯個貨哦。然後租車的話記得事先預定,想著當天到當天租的我們就給現實啪啪打臉了,幸好主人借給了我們他們家自行車 不然第一天真的就不知道怎麼出門。Rarotonga的酒店普遍不便宜,要是不想花很多錢在住宿上面又想小資一下個人很建議這家民宿哦

    Chris2018-04-07T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful property in a peaceful location, a great base for exploring the Island. As Raro is relatively small, it's difficult to be in the wrong location, but personally I enjoyed a break away from the beach, going up into the hills to relax in the evening. All the essential items I could possibly have needed were waiting for me on arrival. And Nicholas and his family were on hand if I needed anything more. Laundry of towels etc was delivered regularly and I was able to use their facilities to do my own washing, which was particularly useful! Thoroughly enjoyed my stay, just couldn't fault it.

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

    Chris2017-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • It was a nice space, very comfortable. Fletcher and his family were lovely, his little son even came and brought me fruit. It is right in town and in handy walking distance to the shops, market and bus stop. Fletcher also gave me a lift to the airport, which was much appreciated.

    Michelle2018-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • 位置好找,附近吃饭的ye bi jiao fan hag也比较方便。 房东人很好,亲自送我们去机场。

    William2018-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • V pretty spot, easy to reach from the airport via taxi and an easy walking distance to the market. The accomodation is next to the family home but is still very private so you feel like you have your own space. We arrived late at night due to our flight and Fletcher was great at ensuring we had everything we needed.

    Lisa2018-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • The room was clean and cute. The house is centrally located. It’s convenient for sightseeing, scooter rental, the bus, shopping and the town center. I definitely recommend . I had a very nice time. Thank you!

    Yoko2017-06-18T00:00:00Z
  • Fletcher and Vaea were kind and welcoming. The place was as described and near a lot of the downtown Avarua shops.

    Jack2017-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for the local way to see Rarotonga and escape the tourists and the resorts then this is the ONLY place to stay. Walking distance to town which has nice places to eat and drink. The bus also leaves from town ($8 return) or you can hire a car/scooter to get to other side of the island. We did both and were both enjoyable. Also close to the starting point of the Cross island trek. The bugs and lizards are NOT a problem like previous reviews mention. We barely saw any! Fletcher showed us around his factory which was great. We had a great time here with Fletcher and his family. We can not recommend this place enough! If you are looking at going to Raro then stay here and just enjoy the relaxed island lifestyle as you will miss it when you leave. If we are ever come back we will be staying here again

    Chris2017-05-13T00:00:00Z

    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. This bungalow features a lovely garden view from the private patio. It includes a fully equipped kitchen, complete with kitchenware, a microwave and a refrigerator. There is a private bathroom with a shower and a toilet. And also comes with a Flat Screen TV where you can plug-in a hard drive.
    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.
  • 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
  • Super cute and private bungalow. No beach views, but it's only about a 3 minute walk to one. It has everything two people need to cook meals or just lounge comfortably and do nothing. We didn't know what to expect as far as WiFi and it turns out there's no WiFi (paid or otherwise) available on the property. We had to buy vouchers and find hotspots around the island, which there are plenty of. The bungalow is a bit darker than I expected except for the bathroom. We didn't meet Kristina, but we met Mark, who was a nice guy, full of tips. Had a great time!

    Nora2017-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Nirvana Bungalow was the perfect hideaway for us! Krissy was excellent with communication from booking right through to our arrival. The bungalow is absolutely perfect for individuals or couples who enjoy being amongst the beautiful mountains/trees and stunning tropical foliage backdrop of Rarotonga, and still only minutes away from the beach. Super convenient being close to bus stop, wigmores supermarket and muri beach! We recommend hiring bike or car with "Island car and bike rentals" located all around the island. Thank you, Krissy, for creating a cosy and clean space for us to enjoy on holiday!

    Mariah2018-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • 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
  • It was a great stay in a lovely place however if you are coming in winter bring a warm pyjama seeing it can get a bit cold at night. It's the perfect place to stay when having a scooter or car as the bus only comes once an hour. Kristina helped us arranging the pick-up and dropp-off at the airport and she is accessible in her phone. We would definitely come back to this place in paradise!

    Katrien2017-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • 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 !

    Nikita2017-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • Sehr schöner, ruhig gelegener Bungalow mit guter Ausstattung. Mehrere Strände und Lokale sind in gehweite, wir kommen gerne beim nächten mal wieder!

    Egon2017-11-11T00:00:00Z

    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.
  • You can expect to find a clean and tidy room with cooking basics should you not want to go out. Are Renga Studio is generally known by the locals as enough of an address to find the place as there are no street numbers or signs on the street. Out the back door is a 30 second walk to the beach and a little gazebo to drink your morning coffee or later afternoon drink and watch the waves or in one case - whales playing about just 50m away. Be sure and ask Kevin and Cathy about best times. Forty metres north up the beach is the Dateline restaurant and bar and about 5 minutes south is Castaway resort and Wilson's bar which has food theme nights so you don't need to cook if you don't want to. A 15 minute walk south is Beluga cafe which the locals say is the best on the island and the coffee is very good. On our last day we went to the bakery opposite the Airport after noticing a sign "the best custard squares in Rarotonga" .... make sure you stop here as the bakery is great with all the normal fare you would find in New Zealand plus excellent breakfasts and lunches so don't leave it until the last day like we did! What we enjoyed most about the west coast area was the peaceful beach and relaxing atmosphere as opposed to the Muri beach side which is a lot busier. Enjoy a relaxing stay and pack your favourite dvd just in case it rains one day and it's too windy for the beach.

    Craig2018-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at the studio and really appreciated all the little extras that were on offer when we arrived, it made our stay extra fun and relaxing. The studio was very well equipped and the perfect base for our travels on the island. Will definitely stay again, thank you!

    Helena2018-04-02T00:00:00Z
  • An amazing holiday break... couldn't have asked for anything more from our hosts. Cath and Kev- you guys were amazing. You went above and beyond what we could have asked for right from the start. Thank you for answering all of my emails (and my many questions) so quickly and with so much detail. You helped ease my anxieties with planning by being so responsive. Cath and Kev met us at the airport (saved worrying about transport home at 10pm!). We were greeted with a beautiful house- just as described in the write up. Our weather was hot and humid- and rainy for 2 days... understandably, this brought a few ants into the kitchen but with a simple spray that was provided, we were on top of this instantly and had no problems for the rest of our trip! The bed was huge... and really comfy. I loved being able to see the beach from the lounge/dining area... and within 15 seconds, I could be beach front at the kabana. The whole accommodation was clean and tidy- with so many little amenities also provided to make our stay extra comfortable (extra soaps, sunblock, aftersun, towels galore, tea/coffee etc). Our place was private- even when Lita and Linz came home for the New Year. Being able to hire your car, Cath and Kev, was an added bonus... Thank you for this. It really made getting around the island so much easier. Thanks for all the dinner/food recommendations too (and for the old towel when I realised my hair dye was leaking everywhere!). We watched 5 of the dvds that were left for our perusal- nice to have the option to lie in bed and watch tv- or move it to face the arm chairs. Loved the setting... the ducklings next door, the access to public transport... Overall, we just loved EVERYTHING! Thank you for being the best hosts... I agree with everyone else who has written something similar... arrived as strangers- but left as family! Happy New Year... and can't wait until we meet again! :) Bex and Dylz

    Bex2018-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • Nice apartment, nothing to complain about. They even let us use the pool since their pool apartment was unoccupied at that time. You‘ll not regret chosing this place. Great value for money too.

    Gian2017-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • A fantastic place. Will be back. Recommend , five star all the way

    Jenny2017-05-18T00:00:00Z
  • Loved our stay here! Peaceful, clean and private; what more can you ask for! Missing it already!

    Folko2018-06-20T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect better than the pictures Make sure you go to waterline for dinner

    Louise2017-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful trip and staying with Lita&Linz made it even better! From the pick up we felt looked after straight away. Upon arrival Cathy gifted us a beautiful bunch of bananas and Lita offered us the car to get to a dinner as soon as we arrived and helped us with directions. The villa it self has everything you need, it's like stepping into the comfort of your own home with the beauty of the beach! There is a car rental place just under 10min walk theres also restaurants close by just within walking distance. I would highly recommended this place to others and stay again! We had the privacy and quietness we were looking for. The shower box was a delight being so massive and addded to the relaxation! Thank you Cathy and Lita for looking after us and sharing this piece of paradise with us :)

    Gather fresh local produce, BBQ by the pool,dine under the stars,wake to warm fresh mornings with the sounds of surf breaking on the reef 200m away-experience it here, at our beautiful, clean & amazingly affordable paradise- Ariana Garden Bungalows.
    **All the information in this listing applies to all of our 5 small houses** Currently (April 2015) we have only listed 2 of our 5 small houses.These 2 listed are Bungalows, able to accommodate up to 3 people. These are named House 1 and House 2. The calendar in this listing is for House 1 only. If you entered your check in & check out dates in the calendar to the right of this page and it returned with the message "Unavailable" then it means that HOUSE 1 is NOT available for those dates. HOUSE 2 MAY BE AVAILABLE for those same dates-so please check our other listing. PLEASE NOTE:- Check in (12 midday) & Check out (10am) times. You will be crossing the International dateline so be aware of date & time changes. If you require an early check in = $50 (NZD) If you require a late check out = $50 (NZD) These would be payable direct to us after arrival (if required). OUR SPACE:- From a guest review on trip advisor:- ""uncomplicated, clean, friendly staff that love what they do, in a beautiful garden setting, nice pool to lounge around and in, guilt free experience that is also excellent value! Our place offers:- Three X 1 bedroom small houses separately placed for privacy and 2 studio units (inter-joining) situated on approx. 2 acre of lush tropical gardens and some fruit trees. All self catering, providing modern utilities, separate under cover BBQ area, sparkling outdoor swimming pool,each unit has its own deck/verandah. Our 1 bedroom small houses accommodate up to 3 people (with the 3rd bed in the open plan kitchen/lounge area). The studios are suited for up to 2 people. 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".
  • We had a great stay at Ariana Garden Bungalows. Everything was perfect, the Bungalow was very clean and cozy. We got PawPaws and Maracujas and they tasted delicious. Our hosts were very helpful all the time. For our stay at Rarotonga it was just perfect and we highly recommend it. Thank you so much for everything!

    Sophie2015-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • Affordable accommodations with a nice swimming pool and well kept grounds. Perfect for the budget minded traveler. 3 minutes walk to the bus stop and 24/7 Super Brown store are hugely convenient. Easy access to Muri Beach if you have a scooter/car. Avarua town center is an easy 45 minute walk if you don't have transportation. As stated in the ad, it can be a bit noisy due to local roosters & dogs. Island knowledge shared by site hosts, Kylie and Marshall is invaluable.

    James2017-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed for 10 nights and we were very happy with our unit - good value for money. The staff were very pleasant & helpful, overall a great stay. Thanks to them both :)

    Amanda2014-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • We had a brilliant couple of nights stay at Ariana Gardens and in no small part due to our fantastic hosts; Kylie & Marshall who were very welcoming, informative and helpful. The bungalow was basic but perfect, the pool, the BBQ and gardens were kept immaculate and there was an abundance of fresh fruit for the picking outside your front door; lychee, passion fruit, mango, pawpaw and avocado. I would definitely recommend staying here- just outside of the main town, but easy access to the 24hr grocery store (Super Brown) and walking distance to the Flying Boat Club (for the best fish & chips on the island)

    Gerrie2015-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • 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
  • Kylie and Marshall are wonderful hosts, fun to be around, and a great source of local knowledge. They made our stay at Ariana Garden Bungalows so pleasant and welcoming, and we appreciated their efforts in keeping the gardens so beautiful and the facilities so nice. The pool is a luxury - we loved spending evenings by the sparkling pool, having a drink and great conversations with our hosts. Each day we found a variety of fresh tropical fruit in our kitchen, which was a really nice gesture. Kylie and Marshall also were keen to share their knowledge of great places to visit on Rarotonga. We would love to stay at Ariana Garden Bungalows again and definitely recommend them to visitors to the enchanting Cook Islands.

    Klara2015-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Kylie and Marshall were such gracious and helpful hosts, from when we first talked to actually meeting each other. We immediately felt right at home. The house was great. Very clean and well-equipped. There were brochures and maps on the table and fresh fruits in the kitchen. There were also the pool where we spent a good amount of time at and the game lounge. The house is only about 10 minutes on the bus to town. Would highly recommend Ariana to anyone looking to spend some time in Rarotonga!

    Ashley Maud2016-04-11T00:00:00Z
  • Very relaxing, enjoyable and friendly place to stay...excellent location for the price with the SuperBrown 24 hour store just around the corner and the trail head for the highest peak a few kms up the road. Great choice if you hire a scooter or car. Cool to get some local fruit each day...a bit disappointed not to be able to cook a local Umu...next time...

    RAROTONGA, COOK ISLANDS, Wyspy Cooka

    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.
  • Staying in Lydia’s place was great experience. She is very welcoming, place is very good located and clean. Would love to come back!

    Zuzana2018-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to stay in a great location. Room was clean easy access and private the host was super nice and helping me out in every situation this is a great place to rent.

    Joel2018-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • Lydia's super host status is well deserved! I was made to feel so welcome and really enjoyed my stay.

    Susie2018-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • The room was okay considering the rate. Could use a little paint and deodorizer due to humidity. However,.. The cultural experience that Lydia's mom provided was wonderful! I was not able to meet Lydia due to a family emergency but the time I spent with her 70-ish year old mother was priceless. We conversed every day I was there. She has such a kind soul and kindred spirit. She and I shared many values, beliefs and cultural stories that will stick with me for the rest of my life. She was such a treat to be around and I can only hope that one day, our paths cross again. She will always hold a special place in my heart! Thank you my friend!

    Stephanie2017-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • 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
  • Lydias Wohnung ist 2km von der Hauptstadt entfernt und 7km von Muri Beach. In die Stadt waren es ca. 25 Minuten zu Fuß. Man muss sich auf jeden Fall ein Moped oder Fahrrad leihen, um sich gut auf der Insel fortzubewegen. Der Bus fährt dafür zu selten. Lydia und ihre Mammi sind sehr nette Menschen, die sich stets mit mir unterhalten haben und Interesse an mir hatten. Das war sehr nett, weil ich alleine gereist bin. Lydia hat mich pünktlich abgeholt von Flughafen um 7.30 Uhr an einem Samstag Morgen für NZ$30 und einen Early Check In bekam ich für die Kosten einer weiteren Übernachtung für NZ$50. Das Badezimmer ist im Haupthaus gelegen, während das Schlafzimmer in einem davon getrennten Gebäude liegt. Vom Schlafzimmer zum Haupthaus sind es nur ca. 5 Schritte, aber wenn man nachts auf Toilette muss, kann es anfangs etwas Überwindung kosten. Im Bad war eins der Fenster kaputt, so dass ich nur geduscht habe, wenn es draußen hell war, um keine extra Insekten ins Bad anzulocken. Ich hatte ein Moskitonetz dabei und bin froh, dass ich es dabei hatte. Lydia und ihre Familie schlafen jedoch ohne Netz. Das Zimmer roch etwas feucht/modrig und aus diesem Grund und weil es sonst sehr warm wird, habe ich den ganzen Tag über die Fenster geöffnet gelassen, um frische Luft zu haben. Das Leben der Familie spielt sich aber eh draußen ab, es sind stets alle Türen und Fenster geöffnet. Die Küche befindet sich auch draußen. Wenn ihr Touren bucht, fragt, ob ihr am Environmental Office abgeholt werden könnt. Das ist genau ggü von der Wohnung.

  • Very nice accommodation; spacious and clean room. Lydia and her family were extremely friendly and helpful. The location is also very good quite close to Avarua and the beach. Highly recommend this place.

    Thomas2017-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks Lydia for being such a great host! You looked after me like I was one of your family members | Felt like I was staying at my Aunties haha Will definitely book with you next time I'm back in Raro! Much love to the family!

  • This was the most amazing place we have ever stayed. Modern, clean and well appointed - and the pool was incredible. We will definately be back and will recommend to everyone!

    Alexia2018-06-21T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice and quiet (Website hidden by Airbnb) get to the supermarket and restaurants you will need a car or a bike. When you want to have a party place you should look for an other place. Fiona are very kind and it was a pleasure to stay at the Honey Retreat...

    Daniela2018-03-25T00:00:00Z
  • You will not regret staying here! The home is perfect for a couple and the location is very private. Small walk to shops, or ride to nearest restaurants, scooter hire and transport. Located on the sunset coast- fish and chips on the beach is perfect! While the house is on the inner road it remains a hidden gem and locals are very friendly! Lastly, hosts are more than welcoming and very helpful! Defiantly recommend.

    Nick 2018-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Fiona place. It is so Nice and the pool was great. Had everything we needed and was really clean. Was in a nice local area and out of the touristy area. Was so nice to have a pool to come home to after the beach or a hike. The place was great!!

    Lauren2018-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Modern, private and just as you see in the pictures, great place with all amenities- highly recommend

    Bobbie2018-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • 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
  • Kia Ora. This was our first visit to the Cook Islands and Rarotonga. What a treat to stay at Fiona's lovely house. The house is perfect for a couple and was designed to meet every need. We loved having air conditioning in the bedroom and arriving home from a day at the beach and jumping into the pool was perfect. We would suggest leasing a car or scooter to get around. The house is not on the main road where the bus goes and we found it much easier to have a car. Enjoy being in a neighborhood instead of being at a hotel. We rented snorkel gear at KiteSUP and enjoyed sunset dinners at The Waterline, Little Polynesian and Vaima. Make reservations. Maire Nui Botanical Gardens were a special treat.

    Randy2018-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Loved staying here, having the pool there was awesome and having A/C to use was an added luxury. This is a great place for couples or 1 person to stay at.....especially if you're out and about during the day and want the luxury of your own pool to come home to cool off in. Great to have a dryer too when its raining and too muggy for clothes to dry. Beatiful landscaping too. Fiona and Turori are a lovely couple to deal with

    Rarotonga, Wyspy Cooka

    Kia Orana, come and experience this private and cozy getaway on beautiful Turoa beach. Elegant yet affordable bungalow with 2 studio units w/ attached bathrooms. Studios can be booked separately for couples or as a 2 bedroom bungalow for 4 person.
    Our cozy bungalows are set in a secluded and private location in beautiful Turoa Beach. The bungalows are studio concept with kitchenette and bathroom attached. We have 2 units available, can be booked individually for couples or booked as a 2 bedroom bungalow which accommodates 4. There is a cafe and bakery nearby and transport to the town center Avarua is mainly by bus or you can book a car or scooter to take you around the island. It is very easy to get around if you have transport, there is only one main road which goes all around the island.
    Turoa is a quiet neighbourhood, you will have the beach mostly to yourself and all the locals are friendly and accommodating. It is located exactly half way around the island from the main township Avarua. There is a Bakery (Turoa Bakery) and Cafe (Saltwater Cafe) across the street. A bus stop is located just next door on the main road. 5mins drive to the supermarket (Wigmores). We are 10mins from Muri Beach, the main tourist area in Rarotonga, where there is a night market, restaurants, bars, clinic, pharmacy and convenience stores.
  • The accomodation has brilliant sea views and is very close to the sea and the price is extremely attractive - however, we had to share this place with too many geckos and ants. Gecko droppings were all over the place, also on the bed and our luggage - and this could not be prevented since the mosquito screens were not properly fixed. The fridge was extremly rusty, the microwave dirty, the cupboards in the kitchen had a terrible smell and we did not feel comfortable at all. We relied on the the good reviews posted on airbnb when booking this place but I have never before been so disappointed by an airbnb stay. Nobody was there when we arrived - and nobody turned up until we finally realised that the owner lives across the street (because they shouted something which could not be understood due to the street noise) and went there to introduce ourselves! Still no introductions to the appartment or the surroundings at all. We did not feel welcome at all there. Sorry to say that this has been my worst experience with airbnb so far.

    Astrid2017-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • We were hosted by the very friendly, helpful and welcoming Anna, the daughter of Ina. The Bungalow is literally on the beach. One of the nicest sandy beaches of the island, bright coral white sand, also for meters and meters into the water. Also great with young children. Good to swim also at low tide. As shown on the picture, there is needle trees in front of the veranda which partly block the view and make the whole place a bit dark. The bed is most confortable. The kitchen utilities are all you need (kettle, toaster, camping style cooking unit, pots, dishes, cuttlery etc) are all new and very clean. The fridge is a bit old, but works. There's a cafe and bakery across the street, which is closed Thursday afternoon to Saturday I believe. We enjoyed the 3 nights and it is defenitly a good budget option. Many thanks again Anna!

    Ursula2015-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely host, we had a warm welcome with fresh fruit on arrival. Thank you.

    Anna2016-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • It's a great place to stay for a solo or a couple. Everything is provided for including the kayaks. Very convenient location (next to a bus stop and opposite a cafe). Inakura is a lovely lady. She dropped me off at the airport at late night (so sweet of her). There's also a very friendly dog "prince".

    Dipankar2016-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Just spent 8 nights at this property. Ina is a fabulous host, so helpful and with beautiful, polite young grandchildren who were happy running errands for her. The shower stopped draining the first time we used it but Ina checked it out as soon as I mentioned it to her and fixed it straight away (turned out the little plastic covers off razors had gone down the drain previously and gotten stuck). My daughter and I enjoyed having the beach literally at our door (just below the deck) and enjoyed the use of goggles, snorkels and kayaks provided by Ina. She even got out a large beach mat for me when she came across me lying on the sand sunbathing :) The lagoon is perfect for swimming with a clear area straight out from the house with lots of sand, making it perfect without having to dodge coral. Further out towards the reef the fish are amazing and my daughter even got to follow a turtle when she was kayaking!! Was sad to leave but had to move closer to Arorangi for a family wedding. Loved the bowl of fruit (pawpaw, bananas, passionfruit and local apple/pear type of fruit). Ina serviced the unit every other day and this was done without any intrusion on our privacy. All in all a fabulous place to escape away to with amazing sunsets. Thank you maata Ina, for making our stay so enjoyable... Miriama and Jovaan.

    Miriama2015-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great value place to stay if you want cheap, waterfront, close to a great cafe and the bus stop (buy a 10 trip ticket) nearby. If you are looking for a church service walk to Titikaveka coral church. Bring reef shoes and your own snorkel & mask. Walking distance to Wigmores that stock local fruit & veges - Inakura welcomed with lovely fruit bowl often too - bonus. Comfy bed, bungalow serviced near daily, no mosquitos.

    Glen2017-04-16T00:00:00Z
  • Nice bungalow just by the beach, as in the pictures provided. Basic accommodation with most of the things you need. Easy to get around either by bike, scooter or car.

    Kiri2016-05-28T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great holiday! The hosts were very friendly and accommodating, the island is so easy to get around and nothing is too far. Our hosts made it very easy and enjoyable for us and were easy to get hold of if we needed anything

    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).
  • Our stay at Kihana’s Hideaway exceeded all our expectations. From Glenn’s warm welcome and generosity to the beautiful view of the sea over the tree tops. The cottage was cosy and clean and had everything we needed. Wonderful stay. Thank you.

    Kristina2018-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • Wow what an amazing spot in paradise! Glenn was a amazing host; picked us up and dropped us off from the airport, gave us free WiFi credit and was generally a friendly, helpful and interesting guy. Bonus animals put a smile on your face - Glenn's own cats and dog but also many other animals such as baby goats and a diverse birdlife. The unit is modern and very clean and the bed is huge and very comfortable. Modern kitchen which we took great advantage of. We used Glenn's bikes one day which was great. Bus stop was only 8-10 minutes walk away. The veiw from the deck is unbelievable, and at night you can hear the ocean. The unit is super private, even the large deck is super private. We wanted to come back the second we left and if we ever come back to rarotonga this will be out destination. Would highly recommend to anyone and everyone. Thank you so much!

    Rachael2017-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay in the Cook Islands at Glenn's place. The place was very clean, private and is just the right size. Glenn and his family were very accommodating and helpful. Would definitely recommend this place to other travellers.

    Claire2016-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • We loved Kihana's Hideaway. Very nice, clean accommodations with a full kitchen that allowed us to buy local food and cook meals and enjoy the beautiful setting. Glenn and Mona were the perfect hosts by providing information on the island and how to get around.

    Robin2016-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • Didn't get to meet Glenn during our 7 day stay at Kihana's hideaway, but we had a good stay once we got settled and figured out where things were. The other reviews were correct in suggesting that you do need a car/transportation if you're staying here. The apartment itself is cute and self contained, with the kitchen accessible through a separate door from the sun deck. The bed was comfortable and it was very nice to be able to sit on the deck, especially during sunsets. Overall, this place is a nice budget-friendly accommodation on Rarotonga!

    Andrea2017-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Very welcoming stay! Glenn picked me up at the airport (at around 5am I may add) which was definitely above and beyond. Everything was just as advertised in terms of the unit - very comfortable and cozy all around. Location was a short walk to the main road / beaches; easy to get into town. Overall, very quiet little spot. Would recommend to anyone visiting Rarotonga.

    Bryan2016-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • 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!

    Jacqui2017-05-12T00:00:00Z
  • Wir wurden vom Flughafen abgeholt! Mona war äusserst zuvorkommend & wir haben uns wie zu Hause gefühlt. Alles war da, inkl. Milchschäumer und Anti-Moskito-Räucherstäbchen... Der Blick auf das Meer ist wunderbar. Wir können es nur empfehlen!

  • Roberta was really easy-going, she showed lots attractions. My room was super cosy and clean. Really recommended to everyone !!!

    Stella2016-05-13T00:00:00Z
  • Carlos and Robertas Tree House Bed and Breakfast was the perfect place for my last few days on the Cook Islands. It's close to the beach, where it's nice to snorkel and safe to swim - and you have beautyful sunsets. The room (or rooms actually) is clean and you'll find everything you need: fridge, microwave, kettle, platers and so on for cooking. Games, books, cds and dvds for the evenings or a rainy day. A comfy bed and a nice shower with hot water. I didn't meet Carlo, but the communication was smooth and quick. Roberta was very welcoming and willing to help with every thing. I do recommend this place if you want to stay on the western part of Rarotonga!

    Bettina2016-04-26T00:00:00Z
  • Carlo made us feel very at home and was very helpful

    Mitchell2016-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay - Carlo is the prefect host full of great recommendations and connections. The house was lovely and clean and very close to everything PLUS access to your own private and quite secluded beach area and amazing snorkelling.. great place and great host - would definitely recommend.

    Chicco2017-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Carlo's place is exactly as described, quiet and tidy away from the hustle and bustle of town. It's clean and equipped with everything you may want or need, and Bruce and Sue were superb hosts. Thanks so much Carlos as well for always replying quickly to messages. Can't wait for my second stay in June!

    Chung Mei Maggie2017-05-01T00:00:00Z
  • Carlo is a fantastic host, make sure you experience his cooking, the best Italian food we've ever had, or likely to have.

    Tony & Serene2017-04-01T00:00:00Z
  • Wow. What an over-the-top experience. Carlo has to be the best host on Rarotonga. He's also a minor celebrity on the island, made famous by his cooking. I can't recommend the Tree House enough. He graciously picked us up and dropped us off at the airport. He prepared two dinners and a breakfast for us which was amazing. True Italian cooking. We picked up fish from the local market (ok, it's a small island, the only market) and he prepared the tuna perfectly. An amazing host. The beach is about a 30 second walk down a driveway. Stay on the west side of the island for the best sunsets and amazing hospitality! Carlo, you rock!!!

    Haydn2016-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • Carlo and Roberta and welcoming, gracious hosts with lots of local knowledge and advice. The apartment was confirtable, spotlessly clean and well maintained and we recommend it highly. We had a great time, thank you! M+J

    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 upon request. Free airport transfers!
  • 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

    Enjoy the beauty of our tropical Island in the shades of the mountains but only minutes away from the beach. Explore the island by foot, bike or car, hike the mountains, wander in the valleys, swim and snorkel, scuba dive or paddle board in the turquoise waters of our lagoon or simply do nothing and enjoy Little Paradise. An European style breakfast with added tropical "delights" and fresh eggs from our own chicken is included to make you fit for your exciting day. Free Airport transfer!
    The little house is located on our large property, away from the road with the magnificent mountains in the back. You can hike the mountains, cycle along the back road, enjoy the morning sun coming up over the palm trees and just relax and recharge your batteries. You and you kids will be entertained by the goats, the cats, the colorful roosters and hens with their baby chicks. You are welcome to explore the property and enjoy some tropical fruits straight from the tree. Needless to say that the property is very safe, pretty quiet apart from some animal "noise" and just perfect for a relaxing holiday. Bedrooms: 1 double bedroom, 1 fold out sofa in living area. Booking can be combined with Bedsitter (Single bedroom), for one additional guest.
    The property is very safe and is located in a very safe area on the east side of the island. You can see beautiful sunrises right from your door step. Since nothing is really far on the island you can reach the next beautiful snorkeling spot or the Night market in Muri, or the next restaurant in just a few minutes.
  • Great spot with the best of hosts, awesome breakfast.

    Robert2018-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks for the fantastic stay O&J! You eliminated our trip worries by picking us up and dropping of off to the airport. Couldn’t get better breakfast’s anywhere else on the island. We already miss the pawpaw and of curse the chicken. You can put a price on O&Js local knowledge!! Lots of thanks, Hannah Matt and Trish

    Hannah2018-07-04T00:00:00Z
  • Joe is very welcoming and the place is very nice. Doesn't matter if it's hot or cold outside, the apartment allways stays fine. Joe and his wife provides wide knowledge about the island's attractions and necessities such as groceries shopping and the markets.

    Roy2016-05-11T00:00:00Z
  • Joe & Odette have are excellent Air Bnb hosts. The rooms are kept very clean, and food and conversation is just great. You get a true sense of the culture and beauty of Rarotonga tucked away on this farmstay. There are goats, chickens (who produce fresh eggs for morning breakfasts), and a giant pet pig. Joe will husk you fresh coconuts to drink, and you can pick your own fresh bananas off the tree out back. The owners will share a wealth of local knowledge with you. They also run a lovely cafe near by with delicious food and a snorkeling beach out front. We rented bikes and explored the island. There is also a bus stop right out front that can take you around the island in either direction. It was a pleasure to stay here during our nights in Rarotonga.

    Robyn2016-04-16T00:00:00Z
  • Odette and Joey were wonderful hosts! Airport drop off/pick up (even at ungodly hours), amazing fresh breakfast, great suggestions for activities, and a whole host of cute animals to top it all off. I proposed to my girlfriend on the Cook Islands and we couldn't have asked for a better setting! Having such kind, wonderful people as hosts made our trip even more unforgettable!

    Taylor2017-04-25T00:00:00Z
  • Quite place off the beaten path but still close to get everywhere (Raro is small). Joey and Odette were very friendly and very accommodating around timing of check-in/check-out. They kindly accommodated a gluten-free breakfast and the fresh fruit was delicious. Would definitely recommend anyone to stay here :) we had a great time!

    Adrien2017-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • 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
  • Joe and his wife were so helpful and friendly, they made our stay so great!! We arrived in early in the morning and Joe was there to pick us up, they had breakfast ready for us in the morning which was really yummy scones, we were also able to use their scooter for our epic adventure around the island and they were even up to take us to the airport with coffee!! They made our trip so easy and I would definetly recommend this place to anyone who is travelling over to Raro for a holiday!!

    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.
  • Fab place to stay. Lynette and Grant were great hosts, very accommodating to collect us from flights etc. The unit is a good size with comfortable bed, hot shower, well equipped kitchen plus indoor and outdoor seating. Make sure to join Lynette and Grant to try the local beer during your stay! Speak to Grant nicely and he might even pick you up a flask of beer if he's passing the brewery!

  • We had a great stay! This is in a stunning location with a gorgeous quiet beach just a short walk away. A beautiful view of the lush plantlife and palm trees from the room. We also found this to be great value for money, spacious and peaceful.

    Sarah2017-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • Lynette and grant are lovely people. Their place was very clean and a short minute walk from the best snorkeling spot on the island

    Jennifer2017-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • For those that don't want the hurly burly of Muri, Paradise Escape is a great choice. It is just over the road from a marine reserve - and therefore, one of the best snorkeling spots on the island. About two hundred meters away is a car / scooter hire place and the bus passes by on the main road. Lynette and Grant went out of their way to make us feel welcome and to ensure that our stay was perfect, the room was spacious and clean and the hot shower had plenty of pressure. We loved it.

    Adrienne2017-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay here! Lynette and Grant are very welcoming, friendly and hospitable. They were willing to help us with everything. The room was very clean and had all the facilities we needed. The location was perfect, close to one of the best snorkling spots on the Island as well as to a supermarket and a bike rental shop. Also it was nice that they had snorkling gear we could use. We really recommend this place!

    Meilina2018-04-28T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent value stay. Comfortable, clean and well equipped unit only a block back from the beach. Lynette were extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating.

    Amy2018-05-09T00:00:00Z
  • Staying in Lynette and her husbant property was really good. They are easygoing, friendly and lovely couple. The studio was clean and well equipt. They provide towels and kitchen stuff what makes our staying easier. The beat location for snorkling (just 100m). We really enjoy Raratonga!

    Veronika2017-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • 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!

    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.
  • Thanks to Gwen for our fabulous stay at Rarotonga. In this accommodation you’ll have everything you need during your stay as it’s self-contained. It’s surrounded by a lovely garden with heaps of coconuts. Gwen’s staff member Jojo will be more than happy to catch a fresh coconut for you either for drinking or eating - yummy! A lot of things are in walking distance (local night markets, ATM and of course the beach!). The lagoon is lovely to swim, the water is nice, warm and clear. Everyday there is either a cat or dog stopping by looking for some attention :) Highly recommendable!

    Marcus2018-03-28T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Gwen's, it's just outside Muri so feels nice and secluded, but it's an easy walk/bike over to cafes, shops, the food market etc. I'm a light sleeper so usually use earplugs when I stay somewhere by a road - there is the occasional bit of traffic at night here but mostly very quiet. Gwen was really helpful with our airport transfer and through the week - thanks, we had a lovely time and really enjoyed our walk with Zoe on the beach!

    Tian2018-04-27T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place close to beautiful Muri Lagoon, shops, rental places and cafes. We were 1 min walk to the beach - wow. Gwen is an incredible host and an amazing human. We really loved meeting her and getting local tips. A very special moment for us was waking up after a late flight and having JoJo (Gwen's helping hand around the property) show us how to open fresh coconuts. We loves the island it's people, nature and all the pets! Hope we can come back again soon.

    Mariya2018-05-30T00:00:00Z
  • 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 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
  • The studio's location near Miri is great if you want to be close to all tourist amenities/activities, but not in the thick of 'resort-land'. The studio is basic, but has everything you will need and is very clean. I stayed there on my own, but if you were sharing with another - it would be great value. It doesn't have a lagoon view, but Gwen's garden is lovely. If you find traffic noise/being closer to the road tricky - i would suggest the other accommodation options that Gwen has. Jo Jo, Gwen and her animals are all kind and there is a lovely atmosphere here.

    Lisa2018-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • Gwen is such a lovely person! She took care of us and did everything that was in her hands so we could have a great stay! Thank you Gwen for your kind hospitality, your studio is perfect!

    Zaida2018-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay in the Studio was perfect! Great little kitchenette if you dont feel like eating out and the Studio was equipped with all we needed for a week in paradise. Located just a 5/10 min walk from the main drag of Muri, meant that our morning coffee was just a walk away as well as plenty of breakie/lunch options and small grocery stores for bits and bobs you may need. Being located just out of the main Muri strip meant that we could escape the touristy hustle and bustle but still have this accesible. With direct access to the stunning Muri Lagoon, we were able to swim and snorkel right out the front which was perfect! Gwen was absolutely lovely and spoilt us with fresh produce from her impressive garden- such a treat! We loved having the company of her dog Zoe and the three cats- really made it feel like a home away from home!

    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 .
  • Wonderful experience spending 3 nights at Lukuleah Retreat; the studio is very comfortable, large, right on the beach with 2 beautiful decks facing the ocean and the sunset; the host are very helpful and accommodating - overall I would recommend this beautiful place on Rarotonga.

    Bogdan2017-06-29T00:00:00Z

    Leon2018-06-25T00:00:00Z
  • 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
  • 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 had a great stay at the beachfront house, Great location and privacy and our hosts were very helpful and house was comfortable and very tidy. Would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone looking for a self contained hose on the beach in Raro

    Elliot2018-06-07T00:00:00Z
  • 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.

  • 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
  • Sian's place is brilliant - just what we were after. Self contained, everything you need and in your own space. The unit captures the sun and the deck is great. Nice outlook with trees. At night it does get cooler (august) so we did use our warm clothes. The unit is in a fantastic location, with the lagoon & great cafés nearby and the night market is superb. Sian is excellent to deal with, great communication. We had a plumbing incident and it was fixed so quickly, was really impressed by that. Can't wait to return!

    Lisa2014-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Sian's studio is perfectly located in the Muri Beach area of Rarotonga. Sian was very helpful for our check-in and check-out process, as well as giving us detailed directions. The snorkel gear was an added bonus! Would highly recommend!

    Taylor2017-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful! Met Tracey and Sian's uncle and auntie, wonderful people and culture and the apartment was amazing! Perfect for a couple or solo traveller! I can't wait until I come back!

    Lisa2015-05-02T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location and easy to find. Well furnished. Next time I would like to stay there for a month if I have such long holiday!

    JUSTYNA2015-11-21T00:00:00Z
  • I really enjoyed staying at the Muri studio. It was actually more spacious than I was expecting, and I liked the fact that the cafes, restaurants and lagoon at Muri were right on my doorstep. Recommended and also really good value for such a good location.

    Brett2015-08-24T00:00:00Z

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

    William2018-08-10T00:00:00Z

  • 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

  • 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.

    Shelley2018-04-21T00:00:00Z
  • We are regular airbnb users in Australia, but this is the first time we have used the service overseas. Whilst slightly apprehensive for this reason, we were immediately put at ease as a result of Talei and Sam amazing communication before the visit. This continued throughout our stay at their beautiful little hideaway. Whilst living next door, they completely respected our privacy yet were at hand if required to offer advice and tips. Our late arrival caused us worry for lack of supplies. Again, the guys outdid themselves, the studio was exceptionally well equipped with a whole heap of foods added to help us out! The little touches made us feel so welcome! The property itself is so underrated. It's a studio styled villa with private deck, pool and gardens with fruit trees at your disposal! Ideal for a couple and beats any hotel room. It allows you to feel the real village life with the luxury of home from home comforts. Off the beaten track but still close to amenities. Also located in walking distance of a nice stretch of the beach. We have stayed in many airbnb properties and this one is definitely up there with the best! Thanks guys for all your help, you made our experience exactly how we like it!!

    Garry2018-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place! who needs the busy resorts when u can have everything you need including your own lovely pool and 2 good bikes , snorkeling gear, all the lovely fresh pawpaw, oranges and bananas and coconuts you want plus anazingly friendly and welcoming hosts who even stock your fridge ready for first breaky! nothing too much trouble, plentiful towells, really clean and well appointed. great to come "home" each day and feel u were really away from tourists and somewhere a bit special and staying with the locals. cant recommend highly enuf

    Chrissy2018-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place, with outstanding hosts who embody the Kia Orana spirit. Loved the fresh papaya that we could just pick directly off the trees. The included pushbikes are a great bonus to get around the island. When we are on Rarotonga again, we will definitely be staying at Inave Oasis.

    Nikolett2017-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • We had the most wonderful stay at Inave Oasis and we didn’t want to leave! Talei and Sam were so welcoming and helpful throughout our stay with organizing transfers and helping us find more accommodation. The studio was very clean, it has air con which is great, it’s well stocked with everything you need and had an awesome, abundant breakfast pack on arrival. We were able to enjoy a fresh fruit smoothie every morning using fruit from the garden. The studio is not far from the beaches. We actually preferred being away from be crowds in our own little private oasis! We hired a scooter which was perfect to get us around. If you’re looking for privacy, comfort, value for money, incredible hospitality and your own pool then don’t bother looking any further. Stay at the Inave Oasis. You won’t regret it! It’s perfect! Thank you Talei and Sam! Come visit us in SA!

    Kirstin2018-05-20T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place, awesome hosts. I'd argue it to be one of the most relaxing stays we've ever had anywhere and can't fault a single thing about our stay.

    Kim2018-04-17T00:00:00Z
  • I wholeheartedly agree with previous reviews for this place, that is, if you can book Inave Oasis for your stay in Rarotonga you definitely should. Sam and Talei made our holiday on the island one of the best experiences of our lives. They went above and beyond to make sure that we were comfortable and enjoying our time. The bungalow is perfect for an island stay, clean, refreshing after a day of snorkelling, comfortable and genuinely feels like home in no time at all. We will definitely be returning soon.

    Caterina2018-03-24T00:00:00Z
  • Sam and Talei are welcoming and offer a wonderful taste of Rarotonga - cottage is set in lovely grounds with fruit trees. Accommodation is SPOTLESSLY clean with great amenities and lovely decor. Generous breakfast package (lots of fruit!!!) provided - much appreciated. We could not recommend the Inave Oasis more highly :)

    Our home is 5 minutes drive to town and only 5 minutes drive to the airport with full view of the airport (perfect for quick stayovers). I will host you during your stay.
    Our home is is surrounded by flowers and fruit trees, enjoy your local experience
    Our home is close to the airport and close to town and the beaches, watch the planes arrive and leave, awesome panoramic views of the airport. Beautiful tropical gardens.
  • Great hospitality, loved the local fruit bowl for breakfast, good family vibes!

  • Aunty Kana is a busy woman but nevertheless she took good time to make sure I got settled and felt at home. She shares good stories about life in Cook Islands, and I felt very welcome. The house is in walking distance to town and is conveniently close to the airport without too much noise from the airplanes. Kana is a great host, hard not to love her company and I would very much like to come back some time!

    Sofie2018-04-04T00:00:00Z
  • BEST AIRBNB EVER !!! Aunty Kana is clearly the best person in the Cook Islands. I spent my best time with her, she's so kind, welcoming, generous, gentle... Honestly, the best host that i never had. She's always looking for your happiness and give her maximum and make you comfortable. I already miss you aunty, thank you for EVERYTHING you're stunning. I really hope see you again and take care.

    Charles2018-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Aunty kanas place is a good choice if you are traveling on a budget. I liked the room although communication could have been better and I only got the breakfast twice on my 10 days stay because aunty kana wasn’t home. Location is good- on the opposite site of the airport (sometimes a little bit noisy)- but you need to walk about half an hour to get to the bus stop and about 20-30 minutes to get to town. Nice family I even got invited to one of their birthdaypartys and I liked the fruit

    Laura2018-05-05T00:00:00Z
  • An excellent host and very accomodation. Highly recommended to everyone. I have lovely stay and very enjoyable one. Thank you so much Kana and also to your family.

    Renella2018-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • Had an awesome time at this Airbnb. It's local to the airport, beaches and shops which was so handy for the first day when you have no transport. And the fruit platter in the morning was amazing, really gave you a taste of Raro. Thank you for your hospoitality!!!

    Deirdre2018-05-14T00:00:00Z
  • Kana's place is a great option for budget travelers. It is right next to the airport, so getting there (especially at night) is really easy. Before you go notify her! The fruit breakfast was delicious and refreshing. The bedroom was very spacious and clean. There was no A/C, but I did not use even a fan since I travel in June, and it was cool enough. She provided snorkel gear as well. You can take it with you and jump in to any random beach! While I am staying there, her family members came over and we spent good time together.

    Min2018-06-27T00:00:00Z
  • This is exactlywhy i like to stay in AirBnb's. Not only are you a renter but you become part of the family in Kanas home. I can't wait to visit again.

    Luxurious Lagoon & Ocean Views Panoramic nature views Immaculate Apartment style living Maii Penthouse Villa, is ONE OF A KIND!!! This immaculate open plan private studio villa has its own executive bathroom overlooking the entire Vaka Takitumu Lagoon, and occupies the entire 4th floor of our 4 storey executive holiday home "Maii Villa Apartments". So sit back relax and let us bring you 'Paradise'.
  • WOW. Honestly one of the nicest places we've ever stayed at - and the view was second to none! All we were missing was better weather, but Tara and Paavo can't control that - what they can control was incredible. Great hosts, quick communications, A/C had not worked when we arrived and they had it fixed that same day. The place is immaculate, beautiful, and everything we needed & more was available. Being on the beach was great the first part of the trip, but we appreciated being a little ways as it was super windy - so having a castle in the hills was a nice change, and a bit less windy than on the Muri beaches. You can't hardly hear the roosters crowing at night & extra early mornings as the place had great sound barriers and the gentle whir of the A/C was above the bed and helped drown out that sound. All in all, we really enjoyed our stay and are super grateful for the experience. Thank you Tara & Paavo!

  • Do not pass up this little slice of Heaven! My husband and I stayed here for almost a week, and absolutely loved this space! The views are unreal, Tara is incredibly helpful and hospitable, and you are close to some of the nicest areas on the island. When we arrived, the penthouse was absolutely spotless, with plenty of towels, dishes, and other little things available to us. We were also supplied with bread, some orange juice, cereal, butter and jams to get us through breakfast. Even when it rained on this scenic little island, we were happy to be inside because we loved it so much! The tv has a decent selection of movies and shows that have been previously downloaded, but you could also bring your own hard drive if wanted. There is great parking, a cute pool, and you are literally 5 minutes away from fabulous snorkelling. I would suggest renting a car, because although nothing is terribly far, it would be a bit more of a walk uphill than I’d want to do. And this is absolutely no criticism at all, but if you do have a hard time climbing stairs, just keep in mind that the stairs are a little steep (not dangerously so at all, but just be aware!) The only thing I’d want anyone visiting the island to be aware of is that wifi here is not free. Tara’s beautiful penthouse has a “Bluesky Hotspot” available in it, but to access this hotspot, you do need to purchase your own wifi at one of the Blue Sky stores on the island (these stores are scattered many places and are very easy to access). Internet for us cost around $25 for 2.5 Gb of data. Tara, thank you again for your hospitality! Your home is something from a dream, and anyone hoping to visit Rarotonga would be truly blessed to stay here!

    Kaitlin2018-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • This place is perfect. The view is incredible, the part of town it is in is really lovely – everything you need, cafe, little general store etc. is just at the end of the street. Also, the best snorkelling is right nearby. It is so clean, well appointed, and has everything you need to have a very comfortable stay. Barbecue on the deck, kitchen inside, huge bathroom, very comfortable bed, Beautiful pool. Your host is super friendly and lovely, easy-going and helpful. You might never want to leave! We will be back.

    Grace2018-04-17T00:00:00Z
  • You could not ask for a better place. Sparkling clean, quiet, comfortable with a lovely host. You can see Muri and it is only a short scooter ride away but you are up in the trees, clouds and nature. It is perfect if you want to get away and chill which is exactly what we needed.

    Kenneth2018-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Tara&Paavo’s place is absolutely fantastic. The apartment is extremely clean and well equipped with all the appliances and comforts you may need during your stay there. The 360 degree views of the sea, the lagoon and all the palm trees and vegetation from the apartment and terrace are probably the best you can get anywhere on the island. And waking up to the sunrise there will make you want to stay forever! As for Tara and Paavo they were extremely helpful and hospitable. Checking on us every couple of days and making sure we had everything we needed. They went above and beyond to make sure our stay was unforgettable :) Don’t miss out on the pool!! Lounging and reading while having a beer and looking out to sea is a MUST during your stay. We highly recommend staying here!! Probably the best Airbnb we’ve ever been at!!

    Alex W2018-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • amazing apartment. best spot on raro! saw whales from the balcony

    Antoinette2018-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • Wow, probably the best view on the whole island unless you're up on one of the mountains. Paavo our host was there to help us check in and the apartment and view is simply stunning. totally spotless, very modern and did we mention the view? We were unlucky with the weather but this meant we got to watch a beautiful thunderstorm from the comfort of our 270 degrees of muri beach and islands. located a few minutes from town, it's the ideal location. we wish we had stayed here longer.

    Tom2018-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommend, I’m pretty sure it’s the best view on the island. And the inside is beautiful and new. We loved our stay and when we come back would love to stay there again.

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

    Mattia2018-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Words cannot describe what amazing hosts John and Nono are. We have truly walked away with an unforgettable experience in Rarotonga, and we will treasure all the memories we have with them. Right from the get go John's communication was prompt and very informative. They personally picked us up in the early hours of the first night, welcomed us with an Ei each, and left fresh mangoes and passionfruit from their abundant fruit trees for us to eat. Throughout our stay we were always welcome in their home. They told us many stories about life on the island and invited us over for home cooked meals and their progressive dining programme. The guest house is clean and they have taken considerable measures to keep the bugs out which did wonders for the comfort of our stay (bug nets were on all windows and doors, there was a continuous bug repellent, and a can of bug spray and mosquito coils were provided). One thing to note is that there are free range roosters around the property that crow in the early hours of the night.However, this slight inconvenience was not a big deal as we were on holiday and could sleep in later. The location was perfect- the dairy was at the end of the drive and it was only few minutes walk to the town shops and the main supermarket. Stunning beaches were only a few minutes drive away as it only takes 40 minutes to drive around the whole island. Thanks to them, we couldn't have asked for a better experience from our wee getaway. We have made life long friends and are definitely coming back to visit next time we come back to the island.

    Erica2018-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • This home was amazing! It literally had everything I needed! It’s close to town, lovely neighbourhood, very clean and surrounded by beautiful luscious greenery! Perfect getaway!

    Ehden2018-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely big house at the back of the property, surrounded by lush green and coconut trees. great location - 5 min to local market and dairy / corner store just a minute away. lovely stay with my toddler who loved walking around the garden, following the chickens around.

    Tina2018-06-16T00:00:00Z
  • John and his wife Nono. Are the most loveliest hosts you will meet on the island. From the moment I contacted them about their accomodation, they were prompt in their replies, and asked if I needed anymore information. Day one they meet us at arrival to the sunny islands. With flower necklaces. Dropped us to our accomodation which was truly lovely, a slice of paradise. It was surrounded by mango trees, star fruit, pawpaw, coconuts. And just outside your kitchen window is the sweet smelling tiare maori which all the locals adorn themselves with. You are located at the back off the main road for privacy, but being in avatiu, your right in town. Which is only a 5 min walk away. John and Nono are always helpful. They advised us if we needed anything, they were always contactable. Staying in John and Nono’s was a joy, especially since this was my first time using Airbnb overseas before. They made us feel welcomed but truly part of the family. John and Nono hosts a few things at their home which they invited us to participate in. So if your looking for that authentic island experience, to stay in a clean home in the heart of town with the most amazing hosts you’ll ever meet come and try this accomodation. You won’t regret it.

    Trey2018-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • great to experience real Cook island hospitality with the best hosts in a village like setting, walking distance to town, this setting does come with noise from dogs and roosters just bring earplugs if you like sleeping in

    Eileen2018-05-20T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at John and Nono's place is an experience that will make your trip to Rarotonga a unique memory. Starting with a warm welcome they will not only show you their culture but let you be part of it. An experience that we don't want to have missed. You'll have your own house to yourself surrounded by native plants, animals, and fruits that you can pick in the morning for a healthy and delicious breakfast. And all of that in walking distance to town, market, bus stop and the famous cross-island walk. We are glad that we have met John and Nono and their "all-inclusive" island experience and we hope to be back soon.

    Ilaria2018-07-21T00:00:00Z

Make sure to bring your own snorkel gear and walk out to the island on your right! So many gorgeous sea life and coral! Absolutely breathtakingly beautiful. Central to night market and so many other activities and shops. It's secluded yet super accessable. You don't need a scooter unless you plan to constantly be going. Bus system super easy to use and frequented by tourists so you won't be alone:) Have to say one of our favorite things of the island was all the friendly dogs! It was Heaven on Earth for dog lovers like me and my husband. We became friends with the 2 black and white neighbor dogs (long haired we named Sarah and shirt haired we named Penny). They went everywhere with us. Ha!! Just remember to relax and have fun. Remember you're on island time so throw your punctuality out the window. Have a great time! You won't regret this awesome vacation home!

    Kelbie2017-05-20T00:00:00Z
  • 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
  • Great spot. For location and affordability this was hard to beat. Beachfront, but slightly elevated so great privacy. Muri Beach and lagoon wonderful in so many ways. And so close to cafes, restaurants and gift shops. The house itself is like a large bedsit - perfectly adequate for a couple, with a deck and sun lounger. We had such a relaxing time. Host Emm and Manager Ura both lovely. We were on holiday for our 25 wedding anniversary, and Emm sent us a beautiful bouquet and chocs. So sweet. highly recommended.

    Di2017-05-31T00:00:00Z
  • 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
  • This place is as good as all the reviews say. Location was perfect (never mind the roosters and dogs, all part of the Rarotongan charm). Walking distance from all you can want in Muri and stones throw from the Lagoon, this is ideal for a quiet, couple, Island escape. We will be back! Thank you Emm for sharing it with us.

    Karen R2018-07-03T00:00:00Z
  • 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
  • A very nice self contained comfortable unit. Had everything we wanted. Excellent location - close to amenities in Muri and yet quiet and private. We loved our stay there.

    Dorothy2017-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • Rheina on Muri is the perfect place to relax. Right on the beach makes it a perfect location. Easy walking distance to the Muri Night Market where we bought the most delicious food and at such reasonable prices. The bungalow is comfortable and has everything you need to enjoy the perfect getaway on the beautiful island of Rarotonga. Highly recommend this gorgeous home, you will be well looked after by Ura and Emm is always available with any queries you may have before you arrive. We believe that Muri Beach is the best location on Rarotonga for a holiday.

    Nikao, Rarotonga, Wyspy Cooka

    Winner - Air New Zealand Cook Islands Tourism Award 2011-12 - Best Private Home This high-ceilinged 100 year old Colonial timber bungalow was moved from the owners village to her family land on the beach. The home has been enlarged, fully restored, with 2 decks added. Absolute beachfront, sitting well off of the main road its next door neighbour is Rumours of Rarotonga, a 5 star accommodation. Held in trust for Aloma Moore, the youngest accommodation owner in the Cook Islands, this is the only Colonial era dwelling on Rarotonga available to visitors. The bungalow is located on Tikioki Beach, at the southern end of Muri Beach and has the advantages of being on the ’right’ side of the island without being in the centre of the Muri Beach developed area. The best restaurants and other attractions are a comfortable walk down the beach, while privacy is assured. The wide lagoon in front of the bungalow is on the edge of a large marine reserve, with the best snorkeling on Rarotonga. The bungalow has been faithfully restored while adding modern appliances and features. A stainless steel and ceramic tile kitchen with a bevelled glass view of the lagoon offers a sunrise outlook.
  • A wonderful stay! A very private location, right on the beach to the lagoon. You have neighbors, but you'll hardly know - the landscaping and position of the house makes it very secluded. The kitchen is well supplied- we enjoyed coffee and breakfast on the beachfront deck every morning. As someone who loves to cook, not many rentals are as well equipped as the Beach Place. If you self cater at all, you will be pleased! We loved the fruit and bread left during our stay - avocados and a baguette showed up one afternoon! This is a well preserved, older home. It ventilates well, with multiple fans for the bedroom - there is no air conditioning. With fans and all the windows open in the bedroom, we slept well under the bug netting. The bathroom is more than adequate - a clawfoot tub if you need a soak, as well as a shower. Location is very good - walking distance to Muri for restaurants and the night market. We rented a car from an agency in Muri (there are several), and you can also rent bicycles or motorbikes in the same area. The lagoon is peaceful for kayaking - be sure to wear reef shoes if you are wading though!

    Michael2017-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Could not have been kinder and more helpful with our stay: collected from airport, looked after our bags while we went to Aitutaki, picked us up again and let us stay in another house after check out because our plane was really late. The bungalow was more spacious than we expected, was very well equipped and had lots of character. A long way from standardised hotel rooms - as we like it. Excellent location in all respects. We loved it and hope to return. Check out the Matuta Brewery tour just over the road if you enjoy craft beer!

    Dennis2015-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • Our host picked us up bearing flowers and took us to the beach house which was delightful. We enjoyed the peace and the privacy. Loved exploring the island. Highly recommend.

    Quetzal2018-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely house with some real thought put into its design. Aloma and her family were very warm and welcoming, right down to letting us use her van on the first night to go to dinner!

    Kieran2015-05-07T00:00:00Z
  • The Beach Place was a wonderful self contained house that was located in a fantastic area of the Cook Islands. We were made to feel very welcome, including being met at the airport! We would definitely stay at The Beach Place again.

    Freya2016-04-23T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastisk beliggenhet på strand, privat, rolig, vel utstyrt og stor hus med stor kjøkken snorkling utstyr, reef booties og to kajakk for bruk. Vi var særdeles happy med å være hos Aloma!!!

    Thomas2017-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • Listing was accurate. We were met at the airport at 1:00 a.m.. Terrible hour to be arriving but it was no problem. Our host left us a huge basket of food for the next day and beyond, which was greatly appreciated. The telephone in the cottage was great to have as we used it to contact our host and to check on restaurants and other activities. There were plenty of linens and towels for our use and the kitchen was compact and functional. The Beach House was a great place to relax and enjoy Rarotonga.

    Diane2016-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely one of the best places on the island! The beach is right on the doorstep and the snorkelling and kayaking is absolutely incredible. The kayaks are handy to use and the snorkel gear you can get from Fruits of Paradise just down the road for a good price (although they don't advertise). There aren't any big hotels around so we practically had the beach and the water to ourselves the whole time. The walk to Island Car & Bike hire was about 20 mins. It was great to have a scooter to get around to see the markets & drive up to the start of the walk to 'The Needle'. Having airport pick up and drop off made everything easy and having a fresh bag off coffee beans arrive on the first morning was a pleasant surprise! The fruit we arrived to also went down a treat! If you want a place that makes you feel like you have a whole island to yourself but easy access to dining & tourist attractions if needed, then this is definitely the place for you! We don’t want to leave but we will definitely be back.

    Inna2016-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay here, beautiful property with lovely bungalows and a great pool. Definitely recommend this place to my friends and family!

    Scott2017-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • 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!

    Leanne2016-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely week staying at Ariana Bungalows. The fresh, tropical fruit straight from the the trees in the garden for breakfast was a highlight! Everything was clean and tidy, the bungalows are simple but very well equipped. Kylie and Marshall are excellent hosts, good communication and helpful advice from the moment we booked and they gave us lots of great recommendations and friendly chats once there. It was helpful (and fun) to have hired a scooter to explore the island, but the bus stop is close by too. The only thing that would have made our great stay even better would have been a more comfortable bed. Highly recommend staying here!

    Clare2017-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • Kylie was a good host and helped us get situated. Loved staying there.

    Lauren2018-06-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great Stay! Highly recommended! Since our arrival we enjoyed this place very much. The hosts are so frendly and the atmosphere is really authentic and local. Thanks again

    Noah2018-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • Hosts were very helpful and informative. They really made sure that we would be able to get around Rarotonga and recommended tons of places to go. They were also available at all times if we needed anything. Grounds were very well kept, houses were basic but had everything we needed. Location was just off of the main road, maybe a 5 minute walk. It isn't next to any main beaches, so would definitely recommend renting a car. Overall, this is a great place to stay and you should definitely consider it if you're going to be visiting the Cook Islands.

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

  • Liegt gut zum Strand, mit dem Bus kommt man eh überall hin und wer es abseits der touristenströme liebt, ist hier gut aufgehoben

    Henning2017-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Nice garden house close to the best Rarotonga's snorcheling beach - Aroa. The room was cleaning every day and we evet got fresh fruits every day. We would definitely stay again. Thanks for nice vacation.

    Tomas2018-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent!!! We enjoyed a lot this pacefull place close one of the best beaches of the island. Okiana is a very great person. Thanks for all!!

    Jose2017-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect little unit! Oki and Donald are amazing hosts that go above and beyond for their guests. Don greeted us at the airport with a frangipani lei and took us on a quick little tour of the island, giving us tips on where to go and how to make the most of the island. Oki, had the fridge stocked with cold water, milk and brought us fresh fruit every day. She was very kind to us and was always making sure we were ok, we had great chats with her and her cat Niki. We cannot thank Oki enough for the awesome hospitality she showed to us and I 100% intend on visiting again ASAP. I already miss not waking up to the view of their amazing garden. I can't wait to visit Raro again and introduce all my friends to Oki!

    Nicole2018-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • good location, near sea.

    Ariel2017-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • Cute little tranquil unit only a short walk from Aroa beach. Oki was an amazing host bringing us fruit from their garden. The terrace was also a big plus with direct view towards the beautiful garden.

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

    Martin2017-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • 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
  • 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
  • One of our best experiencies with Airbnb. The studio is super clean, spacious and offers everything you may need and more. We have stayed in a hotel/bungalow before staying at Raita's place and there is no comparison, 5+ stars. Superb location, close to Avarua and Muri but at the same time secluded in a residential area. Definetily recommended and we will definetily be back. :)

    Guilherme & Fernanda2018-05-13T00:00:00Z
  • Raita and Marianna are first-class hosts and great ambassadors for the hospitality of the Cook Islands. Their Garden Suite was super clean and very comfortable and they provided a much appreciated breakfast of muesli and fresh fruit on the morning of my arrival. My flight arrived very early and Raita was also flexible in letting me come in early. The Suite, which is in the Tupapa area, is in a quiet, safe, residential area that is not that close to the beaches but is only a 5min walk to the 24hr store on the Main Rd. and to the bus stop where you can easily catch rides to anywhere on the Island. A great place to stay!

    George2018-03-27T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is very comfortable and well furnished. The garden of the house will immediately make you feel at ease. The services are impeccable as well as the cleanliness. The owner's kindness is something unique. On our part we can only advise you to go. Near you have the bus stop and a 24H open market.

    Yuri2018-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • Mariana und Raitas Apartment liegt in zweiter Reihe zur Hauptstrasse hinter dem Super Brown Supermarkt, nur 7 Gehminuten zur Bushaltestelle und zum Super Brown. Insgesamt ein toller Ausgangspunkt für unsere Zeit auf den Cooks. Auch wenn der Anti-Clockwise Bus permanent 10-30 Minuten zu spät kommt (Ende der Runde). Das Apartment war toll auf unsere Ankunft hergerichtet, mit namentlicher Begrüssung und Blumen. Und das beste: frisch gepflückte Karambole und Maracujas aus dem Garten. Ein Traum!!! Das bereitgestellte Frühstück war sehr grosszügig! Wir fanden diese Unterkunft sehr sehr sauber, viel sauberer als andere Airbnb’s auf anderen Inseln, eher mit westlichen Standard zu vergleichen, was richtig angenehm war. Tolle Tips im Büchlein. Wifi haben wir nicht genutzt, da wir eine Travel SIM hatten. Es gibt einen TV und Wasserkocher und Mikrowelle. Check in und Check out waren flexibel, was wir besonders super fanden, da wir schon 10:00 angereist sind. Schade dass wir die Gastgeber nicht persönlich getroffen haben. Wir würden sofort wiederkommen und können die Unterkunft absolut empfehlen!!

    Anne2018-06-01T00:00:00Z
  • 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.

    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.
  • Krick's place was exactly as pictured and in a beautiful location on the beach. We really enjoyed using the outdoor kitchen and cooking our own meals. The studio itself was very clean and had lots of little extras that made our stay even more enjoyable (bathrobes, outlet adaptors, novels/books, shampoo/soap/etc). The location was great for us as we were doing our scuba certification in Muri Beach and were able to walk there in 25 min. Overall, we had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend!

    Mark2018-06-24T00:00:00Z
  • This property is perfect for a couple wanting a relaxing and private stay on Rarotonga. The outdoor space was fabulous. Even on a rainy day we enjoyed relaxing at the studio with our books. A very comfy bed and all the towels and amenities you need. Do note that you can't swim at te beach the studio is on due to rocks and coral. A short drive to Muri and other beaches mean you can cool off in the lagoon. Others should also note (so as not to make the same mistake as us) that flying from Auckland, although only a 4hr flight, is 22 hour time difference. So we turned up a day early!! Using Henry for transport isn't a recommendation is a must! And you will need transport. Sweet As car rental over the road is perfect. But book in advance as they get busy!

    Julia2017-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • 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
  • The place suited our needs well. Quiet spot and good value for money.

    Julie2018-04-30T00:00:00Z
  • Krick and Greg were lovely hosts. Cute, well decorated and rustic in the right ways. Awesome value and nice outdoor space! It’s helpful to have a car or a scooter while at their place, as it’s a bit far to walk for food (but great morning coffee is close!) beautiful beach right in front, but not swimmable with rocks and coral. Thanks again!

    Erika2017-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • 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
  • The home is beautiful and the view is perfect. I really enjoyed myself at Kricks home. She is a lovely host and the space was exactly what I needed on vacation.

    Ari2017-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • My Flemings on this place are mixed. Krick as a host was superb in terms of friendliness, response time and helpfulness, and whilst she was away and not able to host in person, her back up Stephanie was genuine, extremely friendly, helpful and welcoming. Top marks for this aspect. The place it’s itself, as per the pictures. The room with en suite bathroom was great. Comfortable bed, good shower, by the sea with crashing waves and the stars. Excellent, very relaxing and quiet if that is what you are looking for. However, when attempting to cook myself dinner in the outdoor kitchen I found a rat in the kitchen cupboard. Being an outdoor kitchen, I do expect the local wildlife to visit. Insects inside cupboards, no problem, happens everywhere. But a rat should not be able to freely come and go into the cupboard where the food and pans are stored. Aside from the rat, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay, and if it were not for this, I would have given 5 stars.

  • We really enjoyed our stay at MK Studios! Papa Teres hospitality was outstanding! The batch is incredibly cute, sparklingly clean and offered everything that we could’ve possibly asked for. Especially the location was perfect for us: It’s close to the beach, restaurants, hikes etc. I’m sure whoever is staying at the batch will enjoy it as much as we did.

    Elena2018-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • Right from the get go Papa Tere welcomed me at the airport. Such a lovely and warm welcome back to the Cook Islands. The studio is in such a great location, very close to town and virtually across the road from a gym. Easy 5 minute walk into town. The studio is clean, tidy, stylish, and well set up. I'm a person who appreciates attention to detail, so having options like a large and small (fit in handbag) umbrella were such a bonus. I had everything I needed. I got talking with the neighbour who helped me pick some fresh Nu (coconut) from the trees on the property. Such a cute little place to stay. Highly recommended! :)

    Marama2018-04-08T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent hospitality and lovely studio I would fully recommend to anyone staying in Rarotonga. It was a pleasure to meet Papa Tere and be introduced to Cook Is culture so thoroughly and made to feel so welcome. Over and above all my expectations. Lovely authentic experience and very close to town, church, cafes and market all within walking distance. Excellent facilities with everything I needed. Many thanks.

    Bianca2018-06-03T00:00:00Z

    Katlin2018-06-12T00:00:00Z
  • I would highly recommend staying at MK Studio. It has everything you need for a relaxing stay at Rarotonga - especially if you want to avoid the typical hotels. It is very clean, the kitchen is well equipped, the bed comfortable and the place is decoratd with great care. You cannot walk to the beach, but it is only 10 minutes by bus to Muri Beach and if you have your own scooter or car the distances are not a problem at all. The host Papa Tere was very nice and had a lot of helpful advices. I would come back! Not about the acommodation, but helpful to know: bring earplugs - the rarotongan roosters like to make noise at night ;)

    Emely2018-05-03T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely time at Mk Studio. A little gem in the beautiful Rarotonga!

  • Waking up and having such a view from the bed is incredible!! Beach is right beneath the batch, water is 5 meters farther, you can see the fish from the balcony!! Apart from that, Nicole & Kahiki were amazing from the beginning, they even compromised their schedule when our daughter woke up with high temperature to take us to the doctor. Lovely and most kind couple we've seen in a long time!!

    German2018-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely people, great place with a view. Highly recommend thank you guys!! :) Loved the set up and gorgeous furniture etc very cool!

  • The beach bungalow is stunning and clean. It has everything you need to feel like home. The view is magnificent. Nicol and Kahiki are wonderful. I can't imagine better hosts. The dogs and cats are super friendly. I can just recommend this place!!!!

    Krisztina2018-04-21T00:00:00Z
  • The absolute best location, a bit of beach all to yourself and yet close to everything. The room is stylish and reflective of the island. Great hosts.

    Jade2018-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic! Great place to stay with plenty of cats and dogs to pat. Lovely views and beautiful snorkeling just outside your door.

    Aimee2017-04-09T00:00:00Z
  • Nicole and Kahiki were amazing hosts, communication from the start was very fast and helpful. The space was beautiful and such incredible views, it was really amazing being so close to the beach and only a few minutes to Muri beach. The amenities were also great with all of the essentials we could need. We were very impressed and would recommend to anyone looking to stay in Rarotonga! Adele & Andrew

    Adele2018-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a great stay at Nicole + Kahiki's place - they are wonderful people! An incredible location with an equally incredible view of the lagoon. It was nice to fall asleep, and wake up to, the sound of the waves against the reef and shore. A short walk to the nearest town and right next to Charlie's! We will definitely be staying here again for our next trip to Rarotonga - thank you Nicole + Kahiki!

    Stacey2018-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • 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!

    Takitumu District, Wyspy Cooka

    Self contained studio suitable for up to two people (priced at $80 p/n for single occupancy, $95 p/n for two) located on the southern side of the beautiful island of Rarotonga in the Cook Islands. In a quiet location 200m from one of the best beaches on the island. A 24hour supermarket is just down the road and a couple of good restaurants and takeaway options are in walking distance. Car rental company and local bus stop is also nearby.
    THE STUDIO ~ Our self contained studio sits on the ground floor, below our family home. Private with its own access, either through the main entry from the carport area or via the glass sliding door leading out front onto the private courtyard area reserved for guests' exclusive use. The studio interior's 50sqm space is ideal for the solo visitor or couple. Inside the studio you will find: full kitchen with a 4-burner gas top & electric oven, fridge/freezer, kettle, toaster and cooking/eating utensils, a table for 2: living space, queen size bed, 2-seater sofa, dresser & wardrobe, iron & ironing board: separate bathroom with shower: solar heated water: full linen. Guests can also enjoy access to a private courtyard area: parking space: shared use of washing machine.
    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 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 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 place to rest and recharge.

    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.

    Alana2018-03-06T00:00:00Z

    Hannah2018-05-09T00:00:00Z
  • I would thoroughly recommend staying here, the location is fantastic at the end of Te Mati Road which is a three minute walk from the unit across the road is one of the best swimming and snorkelling beaches, Lynette has snorkelling equipment that guests can use and there is also a dive rental shop, restaurant and takeaway, car rental and Rarotongan Resort right next door on the main road. The unit had full amenities so we were able to cook meals if we wanted to. We had social drinks with Grant and Lynette and they were exceptional hosts who were there if we needed any assistance and at the same time gave us privacy.

  • Super quiet retreat, while off the main road, is only a few minutes walk from the best snorkelling on the island. We stayed in unit one, which is new, spacious, clean, bright and light. The hosts sorted any issues that arose straight away, and only too happy to help. The bed was really comfortable, and we had great sleeps each night. A lovely sun trap also. The week was really windy, but I found that it was still sheltered enough out the front to lie outside and relax. This place is on the south west side, and the wind was mainly easterly which helped! Great having a kitchen, we took lots of food from NZ , which saved us going out a lot for meals. Thanks a lot,we will be back!

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

  • Lynette and Grant were fine hosts who went out of the way to make us feel comfortable and enjoy our holiday. The accommodation is ideally situated for the beach, walks inland and the island bus route. We found the accommodation very light and spacious with ceiling fans for extra comfort.
