 Akirata Holiday Home

 Akirata was really well positioned. It was within walking distance of the beach, and only a few minutes walk, bike or drive from Muri. It was well away from the main road, and a relatively quiet and peaceful part of Rarotonga. The property was beautiful, with lovely park like grounds and pleasant outlook. The house suited us just fine, and we were very pleased with everything. We would definitely stay here again, and we thought we got good value for money. 

Avana Waterfront Apartments- 3 bedroom apartment

 Although the accommodation is simple, it is very clean and the location is amazing. So close to the beach and within walking distance of Muri Beach. The pool was great for the children and they loved jumping off the jetty. 

Seaspray Beach Villa - beachfront holiday home

 Property is very well taken care of and has absolutely everything. Location is good but transport recommended to visit town and Muri beach. 

Sands Beachfront Villas

 Great place in a great location, very clean and tidy. Would definitely recommend!!! 

Avana Waterfront Apartments- 3 bedroom apartment

 kayaking on the lake was beautiful. the scenery was stunning. close to muri beach. host super accommodating. 

Sands Beachfront Villas

 The property was absolute beachfront, very private with stunning views of the lagoon which was fringed by palm trees and a fabulous sandy beach. We loved the simple touches like the welcome breakfast essentials (fruit, bread, butter, jam, tea, coffee and sugar). Thanks to Rongo for waiting with us until our return airport transfer arrived (late). The 2 bedrooms without aircon were stifling at times so we would have appreciated the additional fans which were requested at time of booking.
