  • right on the lagoon, real close to Muri Beach, basic , but super clean, being updated , those bungalows will be great once completed. Loved our #6 on the end, Kayaked every day from the front steps.

  • We were looking forward to being able to access snorkel equipment and slightly disappointed to find out they were not available due to other guests who did not take care of the items that are a privilege to have as an amenity. We don't blame Sonny and Pat for this, although an update on the listing would be helpful. We were told they should have more in stock later, which is nice but not beneficial during our stay. The hospitality of the hosts is superb, the cleanliness is impeccable, and the bunglaows are simple yet adequate, which is exactly what we were going for. A quick walk to Muri Beach, so the location was ideal for being a little outside of the more populated touristy part of town.

  • Very good spot in the best part of Rarotonga ! Canoe terrasse... Localisation perfect!

  • Sonny, his family and staff had been very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Our bungalow was ready at promised time. Single/double kayaks were available as well as water shoes and snorkel gear. Location is fantastic - walking distance to food options, bike/car/scooter rental, convenient store, tourist attractions and many more. Bring earplugs for rooster calling if you're not a morning riser. We had a great time there, will definitely recommend it to others and visit again!

  • Absolutely LOVED our stay at Aroko. Was so fantastic being in such close proximity to all 35 of our family members. Rarotonga is absolutely stunning & we will be back to stay next year at Aroko Bungalows. My little whanau of 3 cannot recommend this place highly enough. Thank you Sonny

  • Suite is even better in person than it shows on line. Clean, speacious, air conditioned, bright, private. It was very appreciated to have some fresh fruit and water available as soon as we arrived after 24 hours of travel. Great walkable access to everything in Muri and kayaks to get out onto the spectacular lagoon. The pool was a great size and really nice for a cooling swim or relaxing float when the windy weather made the lagoon too choppy or cloudy. The most difficult task for us was to keep track of what day it was and what adventure we had planned for that day. A wonderful home for a vacationing couple on Raro.

    Cynthia2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Adam and Sarah were perfect hosts. Our stay was a 10 out of 10. From checkin to checkout everything was a perfect. Adam and Sarah were very easy to communicate with, and were there if I had any question with very quick response. The suite in perfectly located, very clean and had everything you need for a short or longer stay. I have stayed at many Airbnb’s and we loved our stay here! We will definitely stay again!

    Aliesha2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place to stay, perfect for the solo traveler or couple.

    Jill2019-12-11T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing location with local styling and excellent recommendations for restaurants and attractions. Sarah and Adam were very quick to respond to any questions and provided fresh fruit, water, drinks with bread and jam to get us started. Sparkling clean, with everything you need and more. Unbelievable location on the beach with kayaks available for use in the lagoon made our stay a dream come true. Excellent value, walking distance to cafes, markets and restaurants.

    Stephanie2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • The studio was perfect for our honeymoon - it is right on Muri beach with kayaks available to use, a pool and bbq. You are within walking distance to heaps of activities, cafes, the muri night market and convenience stores. We wouldn't hesitate booking here again :)

    Amelia2019-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I had a great stay at the Muri Studio. It was perfect for the two of us. Comfortable bed. Well appointed with all the required amenities. The beach was super close with great snorkeling and kayaking. There were stores and food within walking distance in Muri. The entire property is very well maintained. Adam and Sarah have this place dialed in. It is exactly as it is represented in the pictures and description. We would return and pay the same amount for the same stay...our highest recommendation !!!

    Randolph2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great location! Comfortable bed was a big plus! Sooo clean! Adam was thoughtful and fun. We definitely recommend!

    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.
  • The stay is in Muri which I consider one of the nicest areas on the Island. The unit is as presented and the lagoon is outback where I saw my very first blue starfish. If I’m fortunate enough to be back to Rarotonga I would definitely stay here again. Gwen is one of the kindest hosts I’ve encountered while using Airbnb.

    Trudy2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • It’s hard to put into words how wonderful Gwen’s place is. Right on the beach, just across the road from an incredible burger place, bakery with amazing donuts, as well as a dairy, beauty place, etc. Gwen made me feel right at home and there was everything I needed right there in the well equipped A-frame. Thank you Gwen for a truly magical stay. Hope to visit again soon.

    Leigh2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very good accomandation for the price. The location was perfect very close to the beach, shops and resturants. It is basic but has everything you need. Shower was great and Kitchen was very easy to use. The garden is the gem of this place, so lovley with lots of fruit trees. Gwen is very friendly and made sure we enjoyed our stay. We would definitley stay here again. Thank you so much for having us!

    Matilda2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay at The Studio. It has beach access but is also right on the ring road which is great for catching the bus or hopping in your rental to go explore the island. It’s very comfortable but also has a rustic island feel that we really enjoyed. Gwen is great host - she had somewhere for us to leave our bags when we arrived early and was always happy to answer questions. Highly recommend!

    Liam2019-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay here, everthing was perfect. The whole space is very clean and has everthing for a nice stay. The host is super nice as well. The library is wonderful. We didn't use it but there is also a landline for local calls which can be very useful as the internet is not well covered in Cook Islands. Close to Muri beach and the night market (must try !) , bakery and grocery store and some restaurants just across street.

    Cen2019-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic location - with new shops opening over the road. Easy walk to Muri beach and heaps of good stuff close by. Basic accommodation- but all we needed. Gwen is a fantastic host with a lot of passion and knowledge! Animals are fantastic. As is JoJo 😊 We hope to be back

    Brylee2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • B'nB was clean and cosy, 50m from the lagoon, right on the bus route, opposite the local store with a WIFI hotspot, good food and cheap local great beer across the road at the pub and close to the Muri activities and night market.

    Lynne2019-09-28T00:00:00Z

Basic essentials eg: bread/breakfast cereal/milk/fruit provided in the fridge for us. Plenty of towels. Comfortable beds.Clean and tidy. Numerous books and DVDs provided. The pool is sparkling and clean. Very close to the beach in a quiet environment. Our group of 4 adults loved it. Highly recommended.

    Janice2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Muri beach villa was great. We will definitely recommend this place to friends and family. The studio is located 2 meters away from the pool (kids loved it!) beach access at 20 meters with kayaks. We found some great snorkeling spots on the right to the island opposite the villas. The studio was clean, modern, air conditioning was a big plus.....as it was very hot weather! The hosts gave us some tips where to eat and what to see, as well as organising the pick up from the airport! Cannot fault anything! A little gem in paradise! 5 stars!!!

    Raphaelle2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Muri Beach Pool Villa was perfect for the four of us (2 couples). We arrived in Rarotonga on a Sunday at 6am and even though there were guests leaving that morning, Adam and Sarah had the house cleaned and ready for us a bit earlier than the normal check in time, which was such a nice gesture since we'd been traveling for 24 hours. The property was spotless upon arrival and the kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pots, pans, silverware, etc. The bedrooms have en suite bathrooms, which is honestly a rarity when we're looking for places to stay when we travel together. Also, having great water pressure and hot water in the showers was amazing. The bedrooms also have fans and AC systems, which was beyond amazing for the born and raised Alaskans who don't know how to sleep in the heat. The outside patio has nice protection so we could enjoy playing cards out at the table while it rained outside. The location is perfect, too. In walking distance to food, coffee, yoga, shops, convenience stores, spas, etc. The kayaks were shared with a few other properties, but never had a problem grabbing 4 at a given time and taking them out for an hour or two. Even though the house isn't right on the beach/water, it's just a short 30 second stroll to the beach, which was a very quite, almost private beach as people just passed by on walks here and there. All in all, we would recommend the Beach Pool Villa based on location, cleanliness, amenities, and great communication with our hosts.

    Callie2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • My kids enjoyed the swimming pool and while in the house we spent most of the time in the deck. Beach was beautiful and great for snorkel and kayaks, not for swimming but, we found a great swimming spot just a few metres further. Adam and Sarah are very nice people as well as the ground staff. Car and bikes rentals and 24 hours shops are close to the house. As well as boats cruises, night market and dinner show. I would definitely come back 😀

    Maria Esperanza2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Adam's place was perfect for 2 couples travelling together, located at the end of Muri lagoon away from main hub but just a quick walk down the beach or the road. The night market is a must do.

    Rachel2019-11-14T00:00:00Z
  • Kia Orana! Great location and great sized property for our family. Would recommend this property to anyone. Walking distance from pretty much everything you need. Thanks so much for having us.

    Jacinda2019-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • Fabulous location, home away from home! Loved the proximity to the beach and the added bonus of the pool! House has everything you could wish for and a great big comfy couch! We spent most of our time on the deck at nights great Bbq area! Location to Muri perfect and do perfect for cocktails on the deck of the Nautilus hotel next door! Hosts were prompt and pleasant to deal with both prior to arrival and on site! Can’t wait to return!

    Jo2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing location right by the beach at Muri Beach. Beautiful clean, golden sand beach on the edge of the lagoon, cafes and restaurants galore just down the road, friendly dogs and chickens for the kids to play with. A perfect place to relax with plenty of space, the comfiest couch ever, and everything you needed. And the beach is so beautiful and clean and the location definitely the best in Rarotonga. We loved our stay and would definitely stay again and recommend to all our family and friends.

    Ngatangiia District, Cook Islands

    Situated on the south-eastern side of the island, in the village of Ngatangiia, Aroko Bungalows overlook the beautiful three Motus (islands) off the coast of Rarotonga. The stunning lagoon view is a perfect place for those seeking to unwind & relax.
    Breath taking View of the Motu's (small islands) and Muri Lagoon.
    Peace & Quite! Away but close enough (6mins walk) to Muri town area.
  • Perfect little bungalow for my wife and I during our two week stay in an absolutely stunning location. Our patio opened up onto the north section of the Muri lagoon and gave us direct access for kayaking etc to the little islands offshore. We were also a short walk away from the Muri townsite, so overall great value.

    Michael2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely bungalow with everything we needed! Great value for money, everything we needed was in walking distance with a bus stop right outside. Such a relaxing special place

    Francesca2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Aroko bungalows enjoy a great location on the lagoon and there is always something interesting to observe from your deck. We would highly recommend a lagoon front bungalow if available. Although not “posh” the bungalows have all you need for a great stay, comfy clean bed, great water pressure for your showers and equipped with what you need for basic cooking. Reef shoes are a must for the lagoon as there is no swimming right in front, just wading and it’s really interesting to walk over to the motu’s. It’s a short walk to Muri for cafes and restaurants and small markets. Rent a scooter to explore. The hosts are always helpful, friendly and readily available for questions. Enjoy.

    Larry2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • The bungalows are at the quiet end of the lagoon and perfect for those beautiful sunsets. However it is a short walk to the night market for food and so well located. Sonny is a great host and very helpful.

    Viv2019-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic location, beautiful sunrises, great value for money, clean linen that is regularly changed. Complimentary bananas with flavour to die for. You certainly wont be disappointed.

    Sandy2019-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • Outstanding value for money. Loved having breakfast on the bungalow balcony while looking out to the lagoon. The gardens here are beautiful and the hosts are great. Very clean and all you need. We loved our week at Aroko bungalows - was such a treat 😍

    Ella2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for 5 star resort accommodation, this place is not for you. If your happy with simple but everything you could need then this place is for you. I was in bungalow 6 with lagoon views and I absolutely loved it. Waking up to a different sunrise every morning and watching the lagoon change colours was mesmerising. You can expect to have a 'hot' shower - awesome after a cross island hike. You have a microwave, 4 burner cooker, large fridge, single sink with double drain and all toaster/kettle/crockery/utensils/saucepan and frypan. Bed was comfortable & towels were changed every couple of days. Beach towels are also available in the room. Table setting inside & another on the deck if you want to finish the day off chilling out with a wine and dinner. Muri night market, coffee, restaurants, hire places etc a 10 minute walk. There's even a bus stop right out front. Deck chairs, snorkel gear (near scooter parking) and kayaks available. Staff were friendly & happy to have a chat. Gardens were immaculate. So relaxing it was ridiculous. The only thing that was probably the most annoying were the roosters but your going to get that anywhere you stay on the Cooks & its all part of the experience. Cant wait for my next stay. Thanks Sonny & the team at Aroko.

    Rose2019-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • The Aroko bungalows were just right for us, we wanted somewhere quiet but by the water and near Muri amenities. We felt we lucked out position wise, looking onto the lagoon and motu’s (islands). The bungalows have everything you need, and are clean and well kept, if you are looking for something flashy with tv and air con this is not the place for you, we loved the more rustic island feel, it’s position means you catch the sea breezes and can go to sleep listening to the ocean. And boy did we sleep well there. Sonny and Pat and family really look after the place and you. They were always very helpful and knowledgeable, but without being intrusive, they bent over backwards to let us stay in our bungalow later than planned as we had a very late flight out. It’s a 5 min walk to all the amenities in “downtown “ Muri, (shops,restaurants, car and scooter hire, markets etc) and the island bus stops just outside.

    Kim2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Emma's place is exactly as you see online. It is right on the beach with a screen of trees/shrubs which gives you privacy. It's a very private and quiet spot. There are some dogs and a bit of barking but nothing that goes on & on. There are roosters about so if you like to sleep in you might want earplugs. Emm's place is right at Muri beach with restaurants and all sorts of beach hire places for paddling SUP and snorkeling a minute walk away. Emm & Pae are wonderful hosts and made sure we had everything we needed and made us feel very welcome. Rarotonga is a wonderful place and everyone was so friendly. Great experience all around! Thanks Emm!

    Gail2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • This is by far the best place to stay on the island. We spent time at various resorts and stayed at a different spot on the island our second week and we wish we could have just spent the whole two weeks at Emm’s place. Having a kitchen to cook in, a yard, and our own private beach, as well as the privacy of our own little hut was so great. We made breakfast most mornings, and enjoyed spending time on the front porch. It’s more spacious than a hotel or resort room too. If you’re expecting a resort with a pool and amenities, look somewhere else, or just stay here and go use the pool down at muri beach club, a half mile walk away. We loved our stay and would recommend this place to anyone.

    Colin2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely bungalow right by the beach. Chickens running around the whole of Muri makes for some interesting unexpected nature watching. Dogs also roam around and are very friendly and well behaved. Internet very expensive it seems all over Rarotonga and this is only negative point. Would definitely stay here again.

    Paul2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay with the beach right there but still enough privacy. Everything you need is close by with awesome activities and plenty of shops in Muri. Emm has been a great host answering all my questions and helping understand everything I need to know.

    Reuben2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Emm’s place was an absolute dream!! The location was so convenient. The place was extremely clean, comfortable and the view was breathtaking. Emm was an absolute pleasure to deal with. You can tell she takes great pride in her rentals from the way everything is kept. I would say Muri was the biggest “hub” outside of Avarua. There was a little shop 2 mins walk away with groceries that also supplied wifi (bluesky wifi hotspot in the house). There are a few cafes, multiple resorts (where we were allowed to use their pools when we ate/drank there) and the Muri night markets were 4 nights a week. There were also a couple of places to hire kayaks, SUP and snorkel gear a minute walk away. We hired a scooter for half our stay (4 days $100 from island rentals in Muri) and went to Avarua (10 min drive) Fruits of Rarotonga for the most amazing snorkelling (5 min drive, snorkel hire $9/hour from Chantels concierge directly across from fruits) and just cruised around the island. However, I don’t recommend a scooter for those we aren’t experienced riders. We usually did our “big” shops from CITC and also bought our alcohol there, we found it was the cheapest on the island. The only downside is we paid $85 for wifi for a week (for 2 of us) for fairly limited use. Aside from that, it was an absolute dream. We would love to come back!

  • Emm’s place was an absolute dream!! The location was so convenient. The place was extremely clean, comfortable and the view was breathtaking. Emm was an absolute pleasure to deal with. You can tell she takes great pride in her rentals from the way everything is kept. I would say Muri was the biggest “hub” outside of Avarua. There was a little shop 2 mins walk away with groceries that also supplied wifi (bluesky wifi hotspot in the house). There are a few cafes, multiple resorts (where we were allowed to use their pools when we ate/drank there) and the Muri night markets were 4 nights a week. There were also a couple of places to hire kayaks, SUP and snorkel gear a minute walk away. We hired a scooter for half our stay (4 days $100 from island rentals in Muri) and went to Avarua (10 min drive) Fruits of Rarotonga for the most amazing snorkelling (5 min drive, snorkel hire $9/hour from Chantels concierge directly across from fruits) and just cruised around the island. However, I don’t recommend a scooter for those we aren’t experienced riders. We usually did our “big” shops from CITC and also bought our alcohol there, we found it was the cheapest on the island. The only downside is we paid $85 for wifi for a week (for 2 of us) for fairly limited use. Aside from that, it was an absolute dream. We would love to come back!

  • Emm was an extremely responsive host before and during the trip. Her place is as described. For the price to be right on such a gorgeous beach, you would be a fool not to book it! If your a dog lover, this place is heaven. Delicious cafe right down the street takes care of a bunch of local dogs. Stop by and get some great breakfast, pet some dogs, and donate to help them feed all of em! One of their dogs, Dewey, showed up at the front deck every night and we played with him for at least an hour. He's a German Shepherd mix with a red collar if you see him!

    Muri, Cook Islands

    A quaint 2 bedroom home away from home, walking distance to Muri Beach, Cafes, Restaurants, Night Market, Beauty & Spa, Cultural Centre and so much more. Great value for money, everything you need under one roof, spacious and clean
    Quiet tranquil location, close to the action, but far enough as well. Walking distance to restaurants, cafes and beach.
  • Fantastic base for fun times in Muri Beach area. Great house, surrounded by lush bush, just a few steps from the area's beaches, shops, restaurants and bars. Perfect for our small family group, great place to unwind after a day on the beach, and great host in Amy. We would definitely stay again.

    Chris2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Had the absolute best week here! Great spaces especially the outdoor dining and deck! Amazing gardens which we enjoyed a bunch of stuff from! Awesome bathroom and well stocked kitchen! Couldn’t of asked for a better location so close to Muri Beach with everything you need! Amy went above and beyond for us which added to us having a wonderful holiday! We didn’t want to leave ☺️

    Jaimie2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and a spacious house. Bug screens are great. Only tip would be to take ear plugs! Roosters crowed at 5am each day and occasionally 1am.

    Abbey2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved staying at Amy’s place, super close to everything and had beautiful decoration. Amy was super helpful with everything and fast communication 👌🏻 highly recommend for anyone visiting Rarotonga

  • Amy is a very nice host and the place is just too sweet. We had a really great time and would definitly come back. Thanks again!

    Noelle2019-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • We were a family of 4 and loved our stay at this lovey house during our holiday, the children loved exploring the gardens and we had many dinners together out on the deck. We had everything we needed and the location was awesome so close to Muri beach/shops. We especially loved the privacy the place offered as we felt it was our home away from home.

    Sheree2019-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great little place. Minutes walk from great locations such as Pacific resort. Really enjoyed our stay at Amy’s.

    Tracey2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Amy’s pineapple house blew us away and was our favorite part about our stay. We were visiting for our honeymoon and didn’t want to leave the house! It was so peaceful and just made us feel at home. Also, It was only a few minute walk to the beach and the restaurants. Amy was great and made us feel right at home. We hope to be able to stay here again. I will be recommending this home to all my friends. It was just beautiful.

  • Absolutely fantastic spot. We loved it. Perfect island experience. Highly recommend - great for kids too.

    Steph2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely house right on the beach with it's own sparkling pool. Very quiet location and yet a short 3-4 minute walk away from all the shops and restaurants in central Muri. Thanks to Adam and Sarah for the welcoming touches of bread, fruit, coffee etc and a nice cold beer waiting in the fridge for us on arrival. Will definitely be back one day!

    Jim2019-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic place Awesome location and perfect setting. Internet is difficult in rarotonga, which hinders communications.

    Sarah2017-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • This place was well located and absolutely gorgeous; the pictures don't do it justice. Adam and Sarah were very responsive and made sure to make themselves available to ensure our holiday was as amazing as possible. They were even lovely enough to allow us to check in 8 hours early when they didn't have to because our flight arrived so early in the morning. If anyone is considering this place, don't hesitate, it's well worth it and you'll be making a very smart decision. I hope any future guests enjoy Raro as much as we did and don't miss out on the Aitutaki day tour as this was the highlight of our trip.

The villa is situated about 10 minutes walk from Muri central and hiring a car or bike is recommended when staying at Tiare Views. The spacious living area includes an open plan kitchen.

The studio villa and private garden are surrounded by a fence for privacy. At the back of the villa the bathroom door opens up onto another private deck. The property is set in a landscaped garden with magnificent views of the Muri Lagoon and ocean. You’re surrounding by palm trees and tropical foliage. As the villa is set off the backroads this is a great spot for those wanting a bit more peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of Muri Central.
    Set off the backroads of Muri on the sunrise side out of island, our large and private studio villa offers the perfect setting for exploring the island of Rarotonga. The villa itself sits halfway up a small hill on a shared gravel driveway, nestled between tropical foliage and looking out onto the stunning ocean and Muri lagoon. This is a fantastic place for those after a more quiet holiday home away from the hustle and bustle of the main road.

  • Tiare Views Villa was fantastic. It was quiet, perfect for star gazing on clear nights. Felicia and James have really thought of everything to ensure their guests stay is 5 star. We had some rain days but were kept busy with the board games in the villa. The kitchen is beautiful and had everything and more than we needed. The location is great, located close to a bakery, convenience store and many restaurants, but most importantly, close to Muri Lagoon.

    Amy2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic place to stay in Rarotonga. The house is very close to Muri beach and all the coffee shops and rental companies. The space is bright, modern and very clean. The communication with Felicia prior to our arrival was very good and she arranged the transfer for us. Bianca, the property manager, was super helpful and lent us some clothes when our bags didn’t arrive on time, thank you very much! Definitely a great place if you decide to visit Raro

    Davinia2019-12-19T00:00:00Z
  • Thank for having us at Tiare Views! We will be back! The place was outstanding and Bianca the property manager made everything easier with her quick and helpful responses. The location was beautiful and right in the heart of Muri, with everything we wanted to do within walking distance or a short bus trip. Will definitely recommend this place to our friends and family for the future!

    Calum2019-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • Had the best honey moon! The island is so beautiful and staying in this perfect villa just made the trip that much better. It has the most stunning view when travelling down to main road. Very convenient close to petrol station, convenient store, car hire, pharmacy and all the local Muri tourist attractions and eateries.

    Clarissa2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • We have loved our stay at Tiare Views. Perfect spot for our little family, so close to many great attractions, food joints, and Muri beach but nicely tucked away for peace and privacy. Thank you for having us 😊

    Paige2019-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • James and Felicia were great hosts with exceptional communication. They have a beautiful place with great amenities. They provided local tips and advice for things to do in the area. There’s lots of stuff to do around Muri!

    Hailey2019-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great private, quiet location while still being walkable to nearby shops including the Muri Night Market. Felicia & James are great hosts and their property manager is nearby to help if anything needs attention on the property during your visit.

    Holly2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • James and Felicia’s Tiare Views Studio located in Muri was wonderful! Their property manager Bianca was helpful and responded immediately to any questions we had and helped made our stay comfortable and wonderful! Beautiful spot that was central to everything and 3mins to the beach!! We loved staying at the studio and the surroundings were beautiful! James and Felicia along with their property manager Bianca are wonderful hosts and helped made our stay in Rarotonga a memorable one! We will definitely be staying at James & Felicia’s Air BNB again on our next trip to Rarotonga! Awesome experience thanks guys!

The apartment is thoughtfully furnished with everything you could need; kitchen supplies, basic food/welcome pack, patio furniture, bbq, etc. We loved our stay.

    Tavake is nestled in-between two other bungalows owed by my family. Torea to the right and Kuriri to the rear. Both are owned by my Aunties and run as Airbnb rentals. There are holiday homes nearby and a few resorts, with bars and restaurants, that can be accessed via the beach. If you head left (east) along the road you will arrive in down-town Muri
  • Beautiful, clean, and PERFECT location! Had an amazing stay in this little slice of paradise. Perfectly placed to walkable yummy restaurants and the Muri night markets.

    Paisley2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • The location was great. Easy walk to restaurants and nice beach. Everything about the place was as described. Enjoyed our stay.

    Paul2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • This was by far one of the most relaxed holidays I have had and it was large in part due to our lovely stay at this beachfront bungalow. Highlights include falling asleep to crashing waves, watching the stars on a clear night, drinking coffee and enjoying a good book on the patio in the morning, and walking to and from the ocean whenever we felt like a dip! The property is sparkling clean and has everything you need. It is within walking distance of a few good restaurants and activities too. The power went out one day and Renee was quick to have it resolved by an Electrician and this was over the holidays when many people were not working so we were impressed! Kiki picked us up and dropped us off at the airport and was super friendly and full of local knowledge and history. Thank you all so much and we hope you have a happy new year! Hope to see you again.

    Karen2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • A dream. We would come back immediately. Thank you for everything!

    Tanja2019-12-17T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing location in Muri with the lagoon right outside your door step. A few local shops and restaurants are a 5 minute walk away which was convenient. The bathroom was nice and clean and so was the rest of the place. The place is very easy to find as well even though we arrived at 11pm at night. Highly recommend and would definitely stay again. The host is very responsive and helpful also. All in all a wonderful stay!

    Nate2019-11-06T00:00:00Z
  • This place is beautiful! Stunning location right next to the beach, clean and tidy, and it really feels like home. Would recommend!

The small pool is great because you can cool off right outside your bungalow. Overall this was perfect for our stay, and Doss made us feel welcome right away and was always available if we needed anything. We will definitely stay here out next time to the island.

    Rebekah2020-03-01T00:00:00Z

    Jacob2019-11-15T00:00:00Z

  • Highly recommended! Only a short walk over the street to the famous Muri Beach. The bungalows are very clean and tidy and equipped with everything you need. Downstairs the house bar with local beer on tap for selfservice. Jules and Kave run an adventure business as well, where you can book great tours like turtle safari with sea scooter. Amazing! Jules and Kave are very likeable, helpful and generous. They sharing their life with guests and doing much more, than a host had to do. The two dogs Miri and Tama are cute and friendly.

    Natascha2019-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • We were there for 2 weeks and it could have been more. Jules and Kive are fantastic hosts, they always looked to our well-being. The location of the property is perfect, away from the main road, ruihg located, overlooking the sea and yet less than 10 minutes walk to the shop or Muri Beach. The bus stops right there, ideal for exploring the island. The accommodation is very clean and decorated with nice details. The bed is super comfortable. The bathroom is spacious and the shower great. The kitchen has everything you need. The garden and the outside area is nicely decorated and you can relax there well. Your leisure activities are varied and well structured. They offer various snorkel trips, stand up paddle, kite surfing, rent bikes and much more. We were snorkeling and night stand up paddling and it was great. You also have your own cafe with delicious bagels and perhaps the best cafe on the island. We can only recommend this property, the value for money is top. We would come back to this peacefull beautiful place immediately. Many thanks to Jules and Kive

    Rarotonga, Rarotonga, Cook Islands

    Kia Orana! Not only does Rarotonga boast supreme beaches, but what’s equally captivating is its lush valleys and mountains. Relax outside this studio cottage while taking in the fresh air from the tropical gardens surrounding the property. Only 500m from the quiet white beaches of the village of Titikaveka, this location is perfect for those looking to get a taste of both the coasts and the valleys of the island. We will like to welcome you when you arrive on the property
    About the accommodation This studio cottage is surrounded by fruit trees, tropical plants, and colourful flowers. It is an open plan building with windows on most walls showcasing the gardens outside. Mosquito screens attached to doors and windows to allow for a pleasant breeze to run through the house at any time of the day. There is a large King Size bed that sits in the middle of the studio cottage, this can be split into two single beds on prior request. The other is a comfy couch that can be folded out into a bed suited for one adult or two children. Perfect for small families and money savers. Feel at home, as you cook with a fully furnished kitchen, and free access to a washing machine on the property Note: A beautiful tropical paradise such as Rarotonga, naturally comes with insects and other wild life that we can’t control. The property is regularly sprayed, but you will most likely see the occasional Rarotonga moko (gecko), mosquitoes, wild chickens (which can be noisy in the morning, but you get used to it), and other insects. The neighbour’s cats and dogs may come to visit you every now and again. We ask you don’t feed them Facilities The dwelling has: one foldout couch and one King size bed (which can be replaced for two single beds on request), a fully furnished kitchen, dining area, lounge, washing machine, and a bathroom facility. The outdoor patio and lawns can be used to relax and sun bathe. As with anywhere on the island, mosquito coils will be provided so as to enjoy the outdoors with comfort.
    Shops and Transport Charlies Café and Bar is highly rated on TripAdvisor, and only a 5min walk away. You can hire Stand-Up Paddleboards and Kayaks, and also feast on fresh tropical fish while relaxing on white beaches Woos Store is a small but convenient shop to cater for your needs. Just 8min walk away Not far from the property are other eateries such as The Hidden Spirit Garden and Cafe, The Little Polynesian Restaurant, Fruits of Rarotonga, and many others which can be found in nearby Muri Note: There is a free filtered water station near the beach that can be used anytime Ara Tapu or the round island road that encircles the island is just below. Here you can catch the bus going clock wise or anti clockwise. There are car rental companies 5min drive from the property in Muri Village, such as “Island Car and Bike Hire” and “Avis Cook Islands”. Here you can hire cars, vans, or the ever popular scooters. When Arriving from the Airport We recommend you catch our go-to taxi man named Petero. He has the cheapest rate and takes you straight to the property. We can organize this for you, or we can give you his contact details. Otherwise, there are also car companies that can arrange for a rental to meet you at the airport when you arrive. WIFI and Communications The accommodation is equiped with a Hot Spot serviced by BlueSky. The area up our valley also has good mobile phone coverage. We recommended buying a Visitor Sim either from the airport or in Town. Note: Prices are quite dear on this small island as there is only one Telecommunication Company
  • Located in paradise. You are kind of in the jungle so take your mozzie and bug spray with you. The space was very nice and be ready to wake up to roosters every morning - very authentic experience. Totally recommend this place, Tim was an amazing host and helped us with everything. Great value for great price! Would recommend leaving the house before 11 am since it can get quite hot in the cottage. Air conditioning is very expensive so there is none at the cottage, only a fan but if you don’t stay at the house during the hot hours you should be okay.

    Margret2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful simple place to stay...all the basics are covered. We enjoyed the walk to and from the beach each day. We love the fact that the best snorkelling spot was pretty much down the road. Charlie’s is a must for all visitors...spent a lot of time here as it was just down the road and had great food and cold drinks. The accomodation was very good value for money. Loved being able to cook for ourselves as well as getting some washing done before leaving for home.

    Janelle2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Tim is a lovely and caring host with a sense of humour, high respect and great service orientation. His laid-back house is dropped in the middle of nice green and agricultural area of Rarotonga. It is a traditional island style accommodation. It is a clean, spacious and functional cottage with a lot of privacy. It was nice to see some special thoughts like island flowers in a vase which have energised each moment inside.

  • Tim was an absolute superstar even with countless disruptions on my flights being cancelled then delayed again..the place was amazing it was everything we needed for our trip Tim went above and beyond bringing fruit to the accommodation also having him on call when we needed something.. highly recommended.. Thanks Tim for all your hospitality once again.. Meitaki maata

  • Great place to stay. Clean tidy and very peaceful and quiet. Quick response from Tim. Highly recommend

    Teanau2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • An amazing view, A beautiful little self contained cottage away from the busy township. Tim is great!

    Tima2019-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • If you prefer quietness & serenity to being on the waterfront then you can't go past this amazing self contained accommodation. Although the shops & beaches are only an easy walk we do recommend having transport as it's a slightly uphill to the accommodation and the weather can be challenging at times. Our host Tim couldn't do enough for us and made our stay on the island that much more enjoyable and memorable. We highly recommend Tim's Place.

    Stephen2019-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • Tim is a great host who responds quickly and proactively help his guests by understanding their needs. The accommodation was really worth for what we paid and very convenient too as the beach were only few minutes walk. A good place for a couple to spend few days specially if you prefer cooking yourselves 🙂

    The most unique thing about our Villas is the view!!
  • Lovely hosts and beautiful location!

    Siska2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful location, great hosts. Was awesome having use of the kayaks, paddle boards and Mt bikes at no extra cost. Only negative was air conditioning is only in the master bedroom, there were ceiling fans and floor fans to complement. Was great seeing Scott daily and the pride he takes in keeping the villas, pool and gardens in pristine condition.

    Amy2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • A great place for a relaxing Whanau holiday. Four adults and a lot of time inside and in the pool. Used kayaks and bikes. Do need to be fit to take these up and down drive way. Three villas next to each other but still a lot of privacy. Spectacular view and just a beautiful place and although we didn’t meet our host the Whanau looking after us were lovely. Hope you had a good holiday also Meitaki

    Kanewa2019-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place to stay and create memories with loved ones. Amazing view, loved the entertainment area and master bedrooms. I Also loved the character of these villas. Scott was lovely.

    Andrea2019-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and hosts, especially loved having the pool, kayaks and bikes at hand. A wonderful introduction to Rarotonga. Thanks veyr much Scott and Roseanne.

    Jackie2019-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • We felt ‘at home’ and just loved the extra things that were provided. From the Nespresso machine to the cards in the cupboard to the bbq wipes to the champagne bucket and many many other small touches that just made our stay perfect! Thank you so much Rose and Scott. So much more to say... the tablecloth (so we could have a fancy dinner on the deck) the bug candle and the extra fans. Xx I could go on but needless to say ‘we will be back’! Home away from home!

    Nicky2019-05-18T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommend these villas whether a small group or large as there are three villas next door to each other. Well set up and with gorgeous views over Muri which is the best spot on the island to be. Had a family of six adults in one villa and very spacious.

    Jo2019-05-09T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, sleeps 10! The villas and grounds are spotless and in great condition. They are well appointed and offer additional recreational items for your enjoyment as well: bikes, Kayaks, Trampoline, swimming pool. Roseanne is excellent - very helpful and responsive. Keep in mind that the A/C is only in 1 upstairs room. Generally, the windows help a lot, though. Great place, great view. I highly recommend Muri Vista Villas!

    Joseph2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful little unit sitting on top of a driveway overlooking the blue Muri lagoon. Surrounded by lush greenery, this place is in a very nice spot far enough away to feel very private and close enough to be swimming in about 5-10 minutes. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and are definitely hoping to come back one day soon. Matanoanoa is a delightful person and is very easy to deal with which made everything go very smoothly

    Ethan2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Exactly as described. Great location, great villa with plenty of space and a stunning view of the lagoon. A very friendly and generous host that can pick you up from the airport even at odd hours! Delicious fresh fruit picked from the garden. Overall a wonderful stay that we thoroughly enjoyed! Would definitely recommend and stay again if we ever have the opportunity again :) Thank you!

    Georgina2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Mata provide an excellent service. House, communication and any help on the island are guaranteed with her. Thanks

    Crístofer2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • A gorgeous little slice of heaven. Beautiful view of the lagoon! Magical place to cook dinner and eat looking out over the ocean. I LOVED my stay!! Great value xx Thankyou Mata xx

    Charlotte2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • Couldn’t recommend an Airbnb more! Beautiful location, great place, great amenities, fresh fruit, lovely host and such a nice balcony. The photos definitely don’t do it justice, exceeded mine and my partners expectations by far. Felt like our own little home instead of a guest suite. The hill is no joke but worth it for the view and no problem if you have a scooter.

    Leila2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • Mata's place is great value for money. She was super helpful and even let us extend our stay until we left for the airport without any extra hassle or charge. There was fresh fruit on arrival and her neighbour Neville even let us use his upper deck for taking photos, which is has the best views. We were so impressed by our stay. Muri is about a 10-15 walk, and a 4 min scooter away which is really close. The only difficult part is the steep incline to return to the property, but by scooter it is no hassles. Definitely would stay at Mata's residence again!

    Denzil2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Mata is the most wonderful host, friendly and makes you feel right at home. I felt so welcomed. The views are beautiful and the house is everything I wanted and more. And so close to the beach! Thank you Mata Xox

    Jazmin2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying at Mario and Averlis little slice of paradise. Mario and Averil really made us feel welcome. They organised our transfers from the airport and when we needed to organise a rental car they took us to get one . They really went above and beyond making our stay so comfortable including offering fresh local fruit mid week and on arrival complementary breakfast cereals and hot drinks . We had everything we needed plus more .We highly recommend Mario and Averils self contained Apartments. If you are deciding between two options we highly recommend this accommodation . These host make you will feel so welcome . Its like you are home . Thanks so much Mario and Averil we will definitely be back soon :) From Vaa and Rima

    Rima Tuake-Wood2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful Place to stay! The views from the balcony are just stunning! The apartment is quiet and has everything including a fully equipped kitchen. If you stay here , you should rent a scooter or car - so it is easier to go to the supermarket , Lagoon etc. Mario and Averil are so wonderful hosts! From time to time they brought us some fruits and allowed us to check out really late . We can highly recommend this place!

    Christina2019-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • Our accommodation was clean, tidy, comfortable and homely. We really appreciated the recommendations for places to visit and eat, and the small touches like having insert repellent handy and plenty of spare towels. It was quaint, secluded and private which is exactly what we wanted. It was only a 4-5 minute ride on a scooter to the main road and close to shops and the beach. Averil was very generous and gave us a ride to hire a scooter and organised airport transfers which was so helpful and handy as we arrived after 12am. I highly recommend staying here. Thank you so much again for your hospitality and generosity.

    Jasmine2019-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • New, clean and fully equipped little house in a peaceful area on the east side of Rarotonga. We had a very pleasant stay here, the house is 15 minutes walk from the Rarotonga’s main road and about 15-20 minutes more to the famous and beautiful Muri Lagoon. It’s surrounded by the mountains and extremely peaceful, at night you can sleep without any problems (not so common in Rarotonga due to the many Roosters around). The house was sparkling clean, the kitchen fully equipped and the check-in easy and fast. I definitely recommend it!

    Vincenzo2019-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • Mario and Averil’s apartment is a real treasure. It was such a well thought out and had everything we needed. We loved being off the main road and retreating to the mountains each night to see the undisturbed starry sky. Throughout the whole booking and visit period Mario and Averil keep in great contact and made us feel very welcome. We would 100% recommend and return to the Avana Valley Apartments

    Emily2019-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome hospitality! Great hosts! Averil and Mario are very friendly, easy to chat with and provide reliable local knowledge. The apartments are very new and clean/tidy. The amenities they provide are very well thought out, even the smallest details were noticed and appreciated. Just little things like having 2 small umbrellas stowed in the cupboard, even insect repellent was handy. Things that we had on our list to go out and buy for our trip were already catered to as soon as we arrived. Lovely location too. Quiet and peaceful area. We really enjoyed our stay, definitely recommend as we will be staying there on our next trip to Rarotonga. Thanks guys!!

  • Our stay at Muri Sunrise was great, easy to find, we had everything we needed, heaps of space, lovely house and fantastic outdoor area, would highly recommend, thanks Wallace

    Michelle2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Wallace sunrise place was absolutely perfect. House was in the perfect spot, across from Muri night markets. We loved the pool and out door decking and also the aircon was amazing. I asked Wallace for a birthday breakfast for my sister and his pastries were delicious. You won't regret staying here x

    Georga 2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • This home was PERFECT for our requirements. We were a group of friends that required 4 x single beds, 1 x king bed and a cot and this was one of the few homes we could find that could accommodate our sleeping requirements. Location was perfect, tons of room to fit our 2 rental cars and a flat surface which meant we didnt have to haul our luggage or shopping up or down any stairs. Air con in the lounge was great but it was a bit hot in the rooms for sleeping. When we mentioned this to Wallace, the next day he showed up with fans for our rooms which was much appreciated and made it easy to sleep through the night. Wallace was always on hand to respond to any texts and also offer some local tips. He even arranged for a birthday cake to be delivered - the cake was amazing!!! I have no hesitation in recommending both Wallace and his family home. Hoping to head back to Raro and will be wanting to book his home again.

    Renate2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • This place is just perfectly located and the pool and lounging areas around it were exactly what we need with 3 kids... Wallace was an amazing host, picking us up from the airport and showing us around, he made us feel super welcome, had fresh bread delivered daily... and clean towels etc...he made recommendations about local services and things to do... couldn’t have been more helpful... thanks Wallace.. Highly recommended.. Suzi and Luke

    Suzi2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • A friendly host, a great space for families or couples wanting to get away. Plenty of room, great pool and outside entertainment, very clean. Awesome beaches and swimming a short stroll, plenty of food options in walking distance.

    Janine2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • What a great stay we had at the Muri Sunrise. Super relaxing, wonderful pool, and just a short walk to Muri's restaurants and the lagoon. Wallace is a fantastic host. Organised a water supply and a huge bunch of bananas on our arrival, and always just a phone call away Thanks Wallace ... 10/10

    Glen2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Wallace is a great host. We were greeted with leis at the airport and on another day he gave us a lift to the markets. We really enjoyed his company. The pool was a treat although we had terrible weather. Could perhaps benefit from fans in the bedrooms. Would highly recommend this place!

    Nicolle2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Was absolutely perfect for all my family. We had everything we needed and more!!! Great location, beautiful surroundings, stunning gardens, super homely & welcoming. Wallace is the best host ever. His hospitality was over and beyond. My family just adored him! Thank you Wallace for your gorgeous home (especially loved the SUP boards) Meitaki Ma'ata 🌺♥️🙏🏼😍

    Sock in the warmth of this modern studio unit, beautiful cosy interior with full kitchen. This property has large private covered decks. Very quite cul-de-sac residential area which backs on to native tropical forest, wild mango trees beside running stream.
    Muri skies unique area makes it the place to be, walking distance (2mins) night markets, souvenir shops, cultural shows, diving, boarding, cafes and restaurants.
    Muri is the hub of tourism in the cook islands with all most all amenities located in this bustling village.
  • Awesome studio, very modern and stylish with a great kitchen and bathroom. Very clean. We loved the pool and the quiet area so close to Muri Beach. Fruits & drinks & cereal were provided. Sherri is a great host! She even took us to the airport. Would definitely stay here again!

    Monika2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • We can highly recommend this place. Great location (close to Muri Beach, cafes/restaurants, ATM, BlueSky, car/scooter rental) and wonderful people. We even got picked up at the airport and were driven to our next stop. The apartment is very well equipped, we did not miss anything and the pool is amazing. We could even hire Sherris car for a very reasonable price. 11 out of 10 points!

    Nicolas2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • The place was modern and very clean and a short walk to the beach, restaurants, activities, spas, convenience/liquor stores. Having a pool was great for cooling off when you don’t want the hassle and sand from going to the beach. The in unit washing machine was very handy. The hosts were fantastic! Sherri and Ben went out of their way to make me feel welcome and comfortable. Their cats and dogs were very friendly and affectionate. I would definitely return.

    Amanda2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place to stay! We absolutely loved our time there and wish we stayed longer. Beautiful place and super clean and the pool was awesome! Great location too aswell as amazing hosts

    Brodie2019-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • What a great place to stay! The hosts Sherri and Ben made us feel very welcomed genuine and nice people they even offered us a ride back to the airport. The place had a super relaxed feel and was exactly what we were looking for. It’s location is great for those wanting to stay in Muri and a short walk from everything in the area. The place itself was super clean and modern, surrounded by trees and the local bird life. Would totally stay again! Thanks for having us!

  • Mario and Averil were the perfect hosts. We could’ve have had a better experience. They helped us out making calls to book day trips. They responded quickly to every message. They are the most kind and hospitable people. The apartment was clean and beautiful and had fresh fruit, tea, coffee, milk, and cereal available on arrival. It was clean and the perfect size for me and my partner. The view was incredible and the location was just far enough from Muri beach to be perfectly peaceful.

    Makena2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place , very clean, modern and quiet. Very good job, thank you Mario and Averil !!!!

    Antoine2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Mario and Averil's apartment was the perfect place for us! We couldn't recommend it enough. Being situated in the valley gives a welcomed breeze in the hotter summer months and access to Muri is very easy by foot, car or scooter. Averil was kind enough to arrange transport to and from the airport for our Auckland flight which arrived and departed Rarotonga in the middle of the night! She was also kind enough to drive us to town on our first day, saving us a walk to the scooter rental and gave us plenty of recommendations on the way which really saved us some time and effort. The apartment is really well equipped, standard is excellent. Wifi is available by purchasing a Vodafone (previously bluesky) voucher. Worth noting that this isn't uncommon on Rarotonga so don't think you'll find accommodation that includes it unless you're visiting one of the expensive resorts! The only place where free wifi is available is at the airport where 30 minutes is available free of charge, enough to let friends and family know that you're taking some time off to enjoy the island uninterrupted maybe!!! It was also great having a washing machine, and drying rack in the apartment. The bed is excellent, just so comfortable. We'll definitely be returning to Mario and Averil's place, it was fantastic and they're both so friendly. We bumped into them here and there several times, and they were always happy to help with anything we needed and always enjoyed a chat, giving us any recommendations and sharing their beautiful island with guests. Don't look any further, this is definitely a great place to spend your time in Rarotonga. Thanks again both and see you next time!

    David2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • Reception, cleanliness, calm and proximity to beaches and shops. Vehicle advised. Scooter or car

    Loic2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • Nice new bright and clean apartment. Very well equipped .Ca 1200 meters from the coastal road. We had spent nice time there.

    Michal2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • Nice new clean modern unit up a long bumpy road, off the beaten track. Nice bush outlook from room. Handy to Muri.

    Chauncey2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • The apartments are virtually brand new, extremely well appointed and spotlessly clean. The furnishings, although simple, are bright and cheerful. The bed is comfortable. I was not expecting a 'Welcome Pack' of the makings for my first breakfast on the island nor such consumables as mozzie spray, washing powder for the automatic washing machine or comprehensive first aid kit. All very well thought out and considered. But best of all was the unintrusive yet friendly welcome and ongoing help and information from Averil and Mario to make my stay on Rarotonga the best it could be. The location of the apartments is, as I knew it would be, a little way out of Muri itself. The valley is quite lovely with lots of chooks, piglets, goats and an amazing number of different butterflies. The road up the valley isn't the best but is easily traversed by car, motorcycle or mountainbike as well as on foot. Cellphone coverage is non-existent although there is a Blue Sky Hot Spot at the Apartments. Unfortunately a Blue Sky SIM won't connect so you have to get a Hot Spot voucher as well (or just take the welcome excuse to go off-line when you are in the valley). This was my first Airbnb experience and it was a great one. Many thanks to Averil, Mario and the girls for making my visit so enjoyable.

    Charles2019-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • Averil and Mario were the perfect hosts and went out of their way on numerous occasions to make our stay both welcoming and enjoyable. After they arranged transfers from the airport, we arrived at our beautiful apartment to find a personalised welcome note from Averil and Mario. The apartment was near-new and spotlessly clean. It have everything we needed - gas/electric stove, fridge, dining table, lounge, TV, wi-fi access spot, excellent shower and a washing machine. The bed was spacious and comfortable. A wardrobe and chest of drawers allow you to put clothes away. We loved the valley setting - incredibly peaceful with no traffic noise or barking dogs. It was nice to sit on the deck each morning in the sun having breakfast and listening to the bird life. We loved the walk to Muri as it was a chance to stretch the legs and get some exercise, as well as lap up the beauty of the bush and rural land, but for those with less time you have options in Muri to rent a mountain bike, e-bike or car. We used the round-island bus for the first four days and then hired a small car to explore further. Even by adding these modes of transport to the nightly accommodation rate, the total cost is well below what you'd pay for a less-modern house closer to the beach. Averil and Mario's apartment was the perfect place for us to stay on our nine night holiday to the Cook Islands and we would happily rent it again. Thank you so much! Chris and Tarn.

  • Amazing place! The private pool is absolutely incredible to have. Very private and still very close to Muri. The air conditioning was great after being in the hot Raro sun all day. Highly recommend this accommodation

    Conrad2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Very good location, quiet and set back from the main road but only a short walk into Muri with a nice bakery, great cafe's and night market close by. Outstanding villa with everything you need and a pool right off your bedroom/living area that we spent a lot of time in. Very clean and modern with very nice décor and for us was the ultimate home away from home. We really appreciated the attention to detail and touches like fruit in the kitchen, milk in the fridge and bag of ice in the freezer that immediately made us feel at home. You will not be disappointed with booking this villa for a memorable stay with Marshall & Jenny who are the perfect hosts with an incredible amount of local knowledge and they are very inviting, hospitable and genuinely nice people.

Sisters stayed over Christmas and an awesome escape from family duties on the island haha Marshall was great, knowledgeable, friendly and just a text away if we needed anything. Highly recommend and would definitely stay again!

    George2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • We appreciated the little touches left by the host Marshall (bowl of fresh fruit/veges, pool floatie etc) He's a close walk away to ask for tips etc yet still allows you your privacy. Location is just far enough away from the main route to allow a tranquil amount of silence, yet still close enough to access everything just down the road. Pool is 100% the best bonus of the house, we definitely made use of it on the hotter days. We were already planning our return before we had barely left.

    Mereana2019-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • You can expect accomodation that is fabulous,immaculate,with special touches and a pool just outside your door. Close to the lagoon and places to eat but a quiet retreat when needed. Marshall was helpful and easy to talk to and couldn’t do enough for us but also didn’t intrude. We would definitely use his accommodation again and recommend others to do so.

    Mark2019-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely adored our stay here at Casa Muri. Marshall was a wonderful host, full of knowledge of the Cook Islands. Bed was super comfy and that pool was amazing! Could not recommend this place enough for a private getaway.

    Nic2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great house, very clean and tidy. The house has been set up very well and stylish for a couple. Highly recommended

    Jan2019-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Would defiantly recommend mango cottage! Such a beautiful place, as well as private, super close to muri too. Liv was a pleasure to deal with, she even came round with a map of the island and marked up all the best places to eat, drink, snorkel and see! will be back in no time !

    Madison2019-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved our stay in Rarotonga! The house was just as discribed. A nice clean home close to a beautiful Muri beach. We can't wait to come back again.

    Micah2018-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean and lovely place to stay. Although not on beachfront, pool makes up for it. Nice location, handy to Muri. Would recommend staying here 100%

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

    Craig2018-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place. Near the sea. The house is very comfortable, has all the necessary utensils. Very friendly hosts.

    Bel2018-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Really enjoyed my stay in Mango Cottage, it's a perfect little holiday home, nice and clean, very useful information guide given! Perfect size for a small family! Everything is only a short bus journey away! Thanks for making my stay in the Cook island easy. Hope to visit again. Thank you again Tony

    Leslie2017-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you Tony and Diane for a wonderful stay. The accommodation was great, the location was perfect and the hosts were so accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble for them, even when we arrived on the wrong day. We hold great memories of Rarotonga and Tony and Diane and Mango Cottage are a big part of them.

    Rarotonga, Cook Islands, Cook Islands

    We have a fully refurbished container cabin #1 for guests and the 2nd cabin is used mainly by the families when they return to Rarotonga for holidays. Situated on the beautiful shores of Tikioki in Titikaveka. These beachfront properties has great view of the the beautiful lagoons which is one of the best snorkelling spots on the island and great for swimming. Only a stone throw away from the beach. It is approx. 25 minutes drive from the airport.
    Papa Johns Beachfront cabin #1 is a 6 x 2.4m fully self contained cabin with a 6 x 5m deck, suitable for 2 persons. It walks out on to a timber deck, a small lawn area and the beach is seconds away from the lawn. Cabin # 2 is similar with a smaller deck which is used by the family when they return to Rarotonga for holidays.
    You are on the beachfront a few seconds away to the beautiful shores of Tikioki, Titikaveka. It's on a beautiful part of the island where the locals and visitors snorkel and swim everyday. The area is surrounded by families but they will normally leave you to enjoy your privacy. Ken & Ronnie Ben will be your host. On Staurdays, a mini triathlon sport event is usually held next door... so they keep to themselves and do what they enjoy doing in the water and on the road. Charlie's Café & Beach Hire is a less than 5 minutes walk on your left. You can hire snorkels, paddle boards and kayaks. They offer great food eg. fresh fish sandwiches/burgers & smoothies and much more to be enjoyed. A short walk to your right is Fruits of Rarotonga where you can buy real tropical smoothies, jams and chutneys. This part of the beach are one of the best snorkelling spots on the Island. Next door to Fruits of Rarotonga is Chantal's Conceirge. Chantal can organise various events around the island for you to attend and this includes: fishing charters, car & bike hire, guided shopping tours and others, island night cultural shows, party bus tours and various accommodation and many more. About 5 km down the road (walking distance) is the busy famous village called Muri where you will find many adventurous activities to do. They also have a night market a couple of nights during the week. A bit further down is Te Vara Nui and The Pacific Resort not far from it. To get to town it is approx. 15 km away about 20 mins drive. There's plenty for you to do and see in the area, so get your bags packed and come say hello to us at Papa Johns Beachfront.
  • Papa Johns is well situated with the best beach and snorkeling spot on the island, it is where the lagoon tours also stop for snorkeling. The place was spotless and self sufficient which also provided snorkels and flippers and reef shoes, To note it is next to a cemetery and to the driveway locals use to access the beach- therefore is not totally private, this didn’t bother me though. The host allowed a late check out which was appreciated. Downfall was that although the gate was locked someone came into the property and stole my wallet bag from my rental car while I was at the beach which had all my cards and money in it on the day I was to fly out it sure did put a damper on the holiday.

    Bobbie2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Loved staying at papa johns. It is perfectly situated on the quieter end of Muri beach yet still only a 20 min walk away from the main beach and tourist spots. Loved the space and it had everything we needed for the week - great shower too ! It is also in front of the best snorkelling spot on the island which was a bonus. Couldn’t recommend enough if you are looking for a quiet place to stay.

    Bethany2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Papa Johns is a lovely place to stay, right on the beach which makes for easy snorkelling and swimming. Good biking distance to several cafes, quite far from town but close to a bus stop so it’s an easy trip into town if you catch the bus. Beautiful stay overall.

    Ocean2019-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful location, close to beach, Fruits of Rarotonga ocean reserve, Muri township, convenience store and local cafe. A stunning spot on the island. A wonderful host. Highly recommend this location. Would stay any time.

    Jonathan2019-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Papa Johns was amazing! The little house is fully furnished with everything (for example, boiler, electric stove, bread toaster, iron board, and iron..). You will find fresh seasonal fruit at the arrival, and also coffee and tea. The position is wonderful: right on the beach, the best snorkeling spot of all the Island!! It was so easy to go snorkeling with the house so close. Near the house, you will find Charlie's Cafè (we was eating there almost every day), a nice and cheaper bar. In 5 minutes with a scooter, you will arrive in Muri, where there are small shops, bar and also the main attractions of the Island (Lagoon Cruise - we did the Koka one, amazing, Snorkeling guide, Te Vara Nui Village..). In 8 minutes you'll find one big supermarket 24/7. We really enjoyed this position, more than the north of the Island. Absolutely recommended! Ps. Be careful with the time zone!

    Annalisa2019-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • This was a really lovely place to stay and the accommodation as a stand alone unit was as-described in the original post. Right on the beach, very nice views, and really helpful correspondence. I was especially grateful for the fact that they extended my visit to accommodate to an insanely late departure flight, even leaving me a fresh towel and sheets in case I wanted to rest/shower before leaving. A second unit has been put on the land which was undergoing construction while I was there which was a bit unfortunate given I was there for some silence (working holiday & yoga/meditation training) which made the latter quite difficult with all the drilling going on (I was kind of house-bound because it rained a lot). I felt they more than made up for it though by extending my stay; still, I wish I'd known there'd be construction happening because I would have picked a different place given the context of my visit. The kitchen/bedroom/bathroom amenities are all fine, came w/ snorkeling gear which was awesome!

    Kathleen2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • Papa John's is located right in front of the best snorkelling in Rarotonga which was a primary goal for us and in that respect it exceeded expectations. The place was clean and tidy and had pretty much everything we needed, which is rare in an Airbnb, you can tell when the owner uses it for their own holidays and doesn't just rent it out by the extra touches (beautiful linens!). NZ hosts were friendly and good to have a chat. If you're a light sleeper you'll want ear plugs, even though the container is set back from the road the road noise can be quite disruptive, as well as the usual suspects of dogs and roosters making a racket! Bluezone wifi next door not currently working but not much of a walk to find a hotspot. Proximity to Charlies Cafe was great, get a fish sandwich and don't make the mistake of getting one each, you need to share this sandwich for sure! Overall for the money you pay, it's hard to go wrong here.

    My place is situated right on the waters edge with spectacular sea views, as well as a large private pool with waterfall. It's situated next door to the award winning Mooring Fish Cafe and a 5-minute walk to the restaurants, tours, activities and night markets in Muri. The room itself has a Super King bed, large en-suite bathroom, Air Conditioning and a walk-in closet. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers and has access to the main public transport route.
  • I stayed 2 night at Yamanika's place, the location was superb, right in front of the lagoon with lovely views, the mooring fist cafe is just literally next door- an excellent option for lunch. Muri beach is also just a 15 min walk away. Yamanika was away then but her friends Amy and Adama are really hospitable and accommodating, I really enjoyed my stay and would recommend this!

    Shuqin2019-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks for the great stay! The house was lovely and the view fantastic, easy to get around to the Night Market etc. Amy is awesome!

    Erin2018-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • Meeting Yamanika changed our hole 1-week vacation experience. She made us feel so comfortable from the very first minute that we felt like staying at an old friend's. Yamanika has this amazing energy and is a very generous person, excellent host. I could not recommend enough. I hope to see her and her friend Marie again :) P.S.: The location, house and room are very nice too.

    Kammiri2018-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • Picture window of the ocean was awesome, Yamanika is very hospitable and nice, guests with allergies should be aware that there’s both a sweet dog & cat in the main part of the house. Great location near Muri

    Ron2018-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome house with an awesome host! Loved my stay very much. Enjoyed the use of the pool and great location next to a delicious cafe!

    David2018-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • Yamanika was super helpful throughoutthe whole stay, the place also had a good location, right on the water.

    Nathan2018-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • I have been to over 75 Airbnb. This place is set on a 5 Star setting. Every morning I woke up to the most amazing sunrise as her home is on the bank of Murillo lagoon, with a view of the lagoon, the ocean and an uninhabited isle in the lagoon two hundred yards away. Swim or walk across at low tide. Their is a dock 50 meters away with a ladder to the water. Also next door is one of the best fish restaurants in the island with fresh caught fish everyday. You don’t see people in front or in the lagoon bc Home is a ten minute walk from Muri Village, with a great beach and places to rent kayaks and paddle boards. I recommend Kitesup bc you can have those for $45 fir a half day. Cheaper than other places snd very nice people. Yamamika was one of the top three hosts: kind, helpful, informative and conversational. She helped me upon arrival as she helped me get New Zealand dollars as I thought I could get them at an exchange at the airport. There is none. She also dropped me off at the cross island trailhead in Avarua about 15 minutes away. My room nice: walk in closet, comfy bed, attached bathroom. Highly recommend it. Amazingly beautiful location, and a very cool and wonderful host.

    Tom2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful house! Has everything you need and more (ice maker!) The space is large, stylish, clean and functional. We loved paddle boarding and kayaking around the lagoon. When the weather wasn’t at its best there was lots of room to relax, cook, read and watch a DVD. Very close to the Muri markets and cafes. Perfect for families and couples. Highly recommend - don’t think you could find a better place on the island. Look forward to coming back!

    Lucy2019-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay was wonderful. We were the envy of other family members staying close by in resorts. They visited every day and relaxed on the deck with a drink. So well equipped with kayaks, boat shoes, snorkelling gear etc. It was great to have the other side of the house to relax in, away from the wind if it blew. The kitchen was so well set up. Loved it and would definitely stay again.

    Kaye2019-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing! We stayed here for a week and the house was everything we wanted. It is right on the beach and has everything that could possibly be needed. The house was spotless and Mark was a great host.

    Chris2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Brilliant house...perfect location. Very clean and great spaces for our family to relax. We will definitely be back.

    Angela2019-04-26T00:00:00Z

A land that hugs the sea from the ocean to the quiet lagoon, right at the end of Muri lagoon, in front of the last little motu. This is the sacred ancient place where the traditional Polynesian Vakas left for New Zealand 1,300 years ago. Kaireva Beach House is at the end of Avana Waterfront apartments.
  • My brother and I had an amazing time staying here.

    Anthony2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Susana’s house is located in a magic spot next to the lagoon and handy to everything that you need. The house is well designed in every aspect and is a perfect holiday set up. We were also shown great hospitality from Susana and her family and have learnt many local customs such as making coconut cream We will certainly return

    Rob2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • I chose this property to fulfil a dream of having a month's respite in Rarotonga. This was a year in the planning. There was a wide range of accommodation options however I kept coming back to my original choice of Kaireva Beach House. I was drawn to the picture of it and it being described in detail as an authentic Eco home built by its owners. As a previous Airbnb Super Host I knew the standard that would need to be achieved by the hosts and that experiencing a stay in an Eco home would be ideal for me as I have spent many years teaching Environmental Education and Sustainability. From the first contact I had with Susana I knew I had made the right decision. The communication was prompt with every query answered and requests accommodated. (Susana's first language is Spanish and we enjoyed chatting!). As I had researched and read the listing thoroughly I was aware of its location and the story behind the house which was that it was built by the owners from timber milled on site from Robert's family property. The length of time, love and care that has gone into it is obvious and would be appreciated by anyone aware of Artisan buildings. The location is ideal for a couple or adult friends or family with the location close to Muri beach but providing opportunities for exploration and different activities. (Having turtles swim under my kayak and spotting whales from the deck will be unforgettable). Susana and Robert and Robert Junior welcomed me and treated me like family ensuring that I had everything I needed and going out of their way to provide memorable experiences such as sharing family meals, giving me a special birthday (as I was on my own), providing fresh fish at times as well as herbs from the garden to cook with. I felt safe, protected and valued as a guest and the house was a beautiful environment to live in. My month with the family at Kaireva Beach House exceeded my expectations in every way and the bonus has been the friendship that has been forged between our families and the mutual respect, will be remembered and treasured. Meitaki and Aroha Fiona

    Fiona2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • Susana and her family were so welcoming and helpful, we loved staying at their little slice of paradise! The house is beautiful and very comfortable. Well equipped with everything you need and lovely thoughtful touches like fresh fruit in the bowl and cold water in the fridge when you arrive. Very comfortable beds and lovely and clean. Susana welcomed us and was available to answer any questions we had. Pool and beach were beautiful and right on the doorstep, perfect for our 2 year old! We took our pram and the 15 minute walk into Muri was enjoyable, that little bit further We highly recommend this place and will be back to stay again soon!

    Holly2019-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • Both Susana and Robert are great and attentive hosts. They are warm and friendly people with excellent local advice. Place was quiet, private, and had a killer view from the large deck. We were so relaxed just sitting on the deck. Décor was excellent, beds were comfortable. Highly recommended, we hope to stay there again.

    Ronald2019-06-27T00:00:00Z

  • Such a great villa in a perfect spot. Janice was an amazing host and was so easy to book with and even went the extra mile for us to book our transport from the airport. We arrived to find some fresh fruit, milk, bread ect to get us started which we really appreciated! Anyone staying In raro I would highly recommend swimming with the turtles, the pub crawl and the dinner and show. Villis burgers was amazing just down the road and you must try sails pinacoladas 😍

    Shaquelle2020-01-16T00:00:00Z

    Kate2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing location and set to only get better as new amenities open right next door. The local hosts are lovely and Janice is so easily to communicate with and very accommodating. Perfect as a home away from home base to explore an amazing part of the world. We loved our holiday

    Bianca2019-09-06T00:00:00Z
  • We have been to Rarotonga many times. This was our first time staying at Maria's and in this area on the island. We had a wonderful time at her place. It is back off the road a bit, but not far from all the places we wanted to see. It was bright, open, and much bigger than the pictures showed. We found it to be spacious for four adults. We enjoyed the well maintained pretty garden. Maria was helpful and responsive to all of our needs. It was a pleasure. The roosters are a part of the experience, and no one in our party thought they were a problem. The other animals we saw were goats, pigs, and piglets, which we enjoyed. Having transportation is helpful, but we did find it easy to walk to the beach everyday. It is about a 15-20 minute walk to Muri beach. We would gladly stay at Maria's again.

  • Marie's house was good and cleaned. Recommend to rent a car or scooter to get to the Muri beach and Night Market, by walk it takes around 25mins. To the beach you have 6 minutes by walk. Be ready to live with very loud roosters. The accomodation is worth the price.

    Radoslaw2019-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • Maria’s place is in a very private setting with a beautiful garden. The locality was perfect for us (close to the one of the major diving spots as well as Muri night market both a short scooter trip away). The house is spacious for a small family. Feels very local with resident goat, pig and the many island’s roosters. Some may find them noisy but it added to the island experience and charm.

    Christine2019-07-19T00:00:00Z
  • Maria's home is a great base to enjoy the lovely Island of Rarotonga. It's located close to Muri beach, around a 20 minute walk away or a couple of minutes on scooter or car. The house itself is located down a shared private roadway which is a bit bumpy and uneven but perfectly fine if you take your time. For those of you who enjoy a beer the Matutu brewery is at the end of the road about 2 minute walk from the house. Charlie's cafe/bar is about 8-10 minute walk away , you'll sample some good food here as well as some nice beers, cocktails, be prepared for pretty big food servings. You will have all that you need in the house in the way of amenities and utensils. Be prepared for Island life in the mornings as the roosters start pretty early, this is the same wherever you stay on the Island....... There's a few local dogs in the surrounding properties but they're pretty friendly though. Maria sorted a taxi pickup from the airport for us which was very handy as it was dark when we arrived and would of been difficult for us to find the house otherwise. The taxi driver (Junior) was very friendly and knew exactly where Maria's house was. We had a great stay at Maria's and would definitely look to book again on our return.

  • Amazing house and hospitality from Adam, kayaks and beach amazing

    Shalini2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect place for 2 couples, lovely pool, great location, friendly host. Recommend having a rental car.

    Irene2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful villa with excellent facilities, the stand out being the beautiful pool which we enjoyed every day rain or shine (there was lots of the former!). The aircon in the bedrooms was definitely essential! Sarah could not have been more helpful, hospitable and kind. Thanks to you, Adam and your team for making Koka Villa such a great place from which to enjoy all of Raro.

    Owen2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Meets all expectations. The photos match reality. It is an excellent host.

    Marcelino2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • This is a fab place to stay when in Rarotonga. Adam is a easy to rent from, we recomend the place

    Torstein2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Koka's was clean and perfectly located near the beach and restaurants. The pool was lovely and well-cared for in a manicured garden.

    Molly2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful location and walkable to many places! The beach is steps away as is fine dining spots if you’re not into cooking...though the grocery, Wigmore, is a great little place to shop for food. We enjoyed walking next door to Nautilus and to Aqua for happy hour and dinner. Muri Beach really has it all! And, you couldn’t have nicer and responsive hosts as Adam and Sarah!

  • Cute, clean and simple accommodations across from Muri lagoon. The covered, outdoor bar on site was fun, as the guys who run the tours were often coming and going and had great stories to share. The staff was so kind and helpful. The bungalows are up a short but steep driveway across the street from the lagoon, but actual beach access is about a ten minute walk. Any dining options are about 10-15 min walk. All in all, a good value and we enjoyed our time here!

    Meghan2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Such a good place to stay. Great location, excellent communication, very supportive! I traveled on my own and felt safe and comfortable the whole time. Jules and Kave love Rarotonga and are excellent at making you love it too! The girls down at the cafe are so enormously helpful, I felt so stoked to have a place to go and ask all my inane questions, and the coffee is delicious! Meitaki Jules and Kave :)

    Bryony2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • What an awesome place to stay. The rooms were so clean they looked as new and the location was great - so close to Muri beach with lots to do But most importantly Jules and Kave are fantastic hosts - very helpful but easy to be around. And the Ariki crew run great activities - so it’s great to be hooked into it all A special thanks to Jules for an emergency dash to the airport with my mobile phone which I stupidly left in her van. Above and beyond for a dumbass tourist like me🙄

    Helen2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely awesome place to stay. Very clean, convenient. I had already read some reviews when I booked, and my expectations were over reached. You can enjoy your quiet time, or socialising around a nice beer. Jules and Kave are great hosts, enthusiastic, full of positive energy, and can offer about any activity you might want to try: kite-surf, Stand-UP paddle, mountain bike, yoga, tour with the turtles... If they can't offer it they would recommend where to go. The Ariki shack has an excellent coffee, and the whole team is very friendly and smiley. Overall A+++++++++, we had a ball, thanks so much!

    Dominique2018-06-28T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommend staying at Ariki holidays and would absolutely do it again our next time in Raro. Jules and Kave were the ultimate hosts - so friendly with great suggestions for activities or places to eat. One of the best aspects of our stay was the amenities that Ariki provides including their AWESOME Turtle tour! You have to do it! Next time we'll also sign up for the Night paddle boarding - since we ran out of time this visit. Bungalows are clean and have everything you need from a fridge to AC and a great view of the lagoon from your balcony. I'm also missing starting my morning with Jules' iced coffee down at the Shack. Ariki has it all and their team / hosts embody the Cook's island spirit. Can't wait to come back!

    Catherine2018-04-04T00:00:00Z
  • Ariki is a great place to stay, very comfortable and clean and a good location for all the activities in Muri Lagoon. We enjoyed a lovely BBQ with all the team at Ariki. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming. I would recommend Jules and Kave's place particularly if you don't want to pay the high prices in the resort accommodation. They also run and excellent business of water sports. Recommend the night SUP/kayak trip.

    Jane2017-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • Jules and Kave were excellent hosts with a wonderful place in Rarotonga. The room is perfect for everything you'll need including a kitchenette. It's about an 7 minute walk to all the places in Muri and the lagoon, but we still recommend getting a car or scooter to get around everywhere else. Jules and Kave were very welcoming and accommodating with everything and all of our needs. They even had a guest BBQ for all of their guests which was way above and beyond expectations. Their coffee shop was awesome and we loved the dirty chai latte we had one every morning. We also enjoyed the ocean sea scooter safari they offer and recommend it. We really enjoyed our time with Jules and Kave and would recommend their place to anyone, and would definitely stay again. Thank you both for a making our trip amazing!

    Zac & Tarah2017-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Jules and Kave were very welcoming and helpful. The accommodation was great and the kitchen was well equipped for self catering. The unit was modern and very comfortable. We would definitely come back again!

    Francine2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • The house is excellent and very well located, is just minutes from Muri and Titikaveka beach. Even for those who do not rent a car can walk to these places. Near the house has supermarket, bakery and restaurants. The house is bigger than in the pictures and the sea view is amazing. Highly recommend to all!

  • Wow what can we say ... this place was amazing , beautiful view, on beach , we enjoyed having our coffee on the porch watching the sun rise... the place has exceed our expectation. Clean, good location near Muri beach, close to resorts and village. Going to sleep at night listening to the wave ... unreal ... thank you Eddie for letting us stay at this place ... jp

    Jean-Pierre2019-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • Torea is a wonderful place. The location is great! Eddie is very accommodating and the the place had everything we needed. The simple added touches including snorkeling gear was very nice. Communication was great. I would recommend Torea too all looking for a private, quiet, and relaxing place to stay in Rarotonga! Thanks Eddie!

    Aaron2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • I would highly recommend this property to anyone who wants their own space and a property within metres of the water. The view is magnificent! Eddie was a marvellous host. We greatly appreciated the carton of milk on arrival and the 2 bottles of water (particularly as our flight arrived late at night). Everything was spotlessly clean, and the amenities all excellent - we couldn't fault anything. Everything is there that you can possible need for your stay - including an automatic washing machine, pegs, clothes basket, iron etc. and heaps of cooking and serve-ware. We can't wait to return:)

    Lynda2019-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • Eddie's place is perfect! The best location with great snorkeling right in front of the house (only 10 steps away from the deck). We will definitely be back!

    Kadogan2019-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place, so clean and loved the little things like the plants and starfish ornaments in the bathrooms. Came with a spare toilet roll (although may need to get more yourself if staying longer than a few days), towels and snorkeling equipment. It was only a few seconds walk to multiple cafes for breakfast and the best thing was Muri night markets were 2 minutes down the road. Would definitely recommend.

    Brittany2019-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay, incredible value!

    Sean2019-10-20T00:00:00Z

  • We had a lovely time staying in Sian's studio in Muri. it's very centrally located and just a very short walk to a nice coffee, the beach and eating places, including the Muri night market with great food! The studio is sunny and has everything you need. The chickens are very entraining! :) Highly recommended.

    Annette2019-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • The studio is in Muri; not far from cafes / restaurants. Just cross the street and the beach is there. The studio is well equipped for cooking. Sian was a great help throughout the stay and I thanked her. I highly recommend this accommodation.
