20 metres from a stunning beach

 We love Lyas Holiday Home, it was very clean and in a great location. Just a 20 metre walk to the beach and across the road from snorkel, paddle board and kayak hire. It isn't right in town so you get away from all the bustle but it is only a 15 minute drive. When we arrived we were delighted to find fresh fruit, milk, bottled water and juice left for us. The overall standard of the house is very clean and had everything we needed for a great holiday.

Kia Manuia Cottage - Titikaveka

 A holiday house I highly recommend. We had a fabulous stay and this property was perfect. Fresh and clean, well equipped and with a nice garden with views over the hills. 5-10 minutes walk to one of the best beach area of the island. Really close to Fruit of rarotonga and Muri beach. It was actually nice to be a bit inland, next to a very quiet road. 

Cooks Beach House-"Laurie Residence"

 The house and surrounds were stunning. So close to everything with the views from house amazing, right on the beach. Kayaks and snorkel gear all available. The house was fully furnished with 3 large decking areas. Will definitely stay there again on next visit.

Kia Manuia Cottage - Titikaveka

 Was stoked that what you see in the photos is what you get in real life. The cottage was modern, clean and had everything my family of 4 required and then some.
