Idyllic studio for honeymooners

 Perfect for a kayak, and quieter than the hustle of Muri beach, but close enough to walk there if you feel inclined. 

Vaka Beach Cottage-great snorkeling & kayaking

 Great location with a good snorkelling beach out front. A bonus that kayaks and snorkelling gear were included. It was a nice and private place, and well-maintained.

Vaka Beach Cottage-great snorkeling & kayaking

 Great tidy & neat little cottage. Decent size with adequate kitchen to cook meals if required. Free use of snorkel gear and kayaks makes for a fun stay. Situated on what I consider the best beach in Raro, with fantastic snorkelling and lovely golden sand beach only metres away. Peter and Jolene are fantastic and looked after us very well and kept regular contact to ensure we were all OK. Will definitely be coming back!
