 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.

Sunset Quay Four Bedroom Holiday Home

 The house is fully set up, it feels like you're walking into a bach that you've owned for years. The house is superbly clean and cleaners come every few days to change your sheets and towels. The house is in-between the main town Avarua and another popular spot Muri beach. Everything is easily accessible by rental car or scooter. Your hosts Lara and Carla will look after you, make sure you ask them for their local recommendations. 

Makayla Palms - Villa Tiana

 Villa tiana was great! Such a nice house and the garden was imaculate. A minutes walk to the beautiful quiet beach. Even though we went at the busy time im Rarotonga, the beach where we were staying was so quiet and peaceful! Such a great spot if your just wanting to relax and unwind! Would definitely come to Makayla Palms again! 

Avana Waterfront Apartments- Apt # 2 - 3 bedroom

 Perfect location and set up for 5 girls as not easy to find a suitable place with 5 separate beds at a reasonable price (our apt was 3 bdm) Had everything we needed and although we had a car, Muri was close enough to walk to dinner if required. Jetty brilliant for diving off in all tides and great to have free use of kayaks. No oven in our apartment but Desiree sorted that for us so we could cook our leg of lamb :) Definitely recommended
