Torea, Muri Beachfront

 Amazing place, clean, convenient, safe, wonderful views. Only comment would be that the bed is to soft, if there is such a thing! Thanks so much will be back if coming back to Raro and will recommend to all our friends. Loved the cat, we brought it cat food, I think it will miss us! 

Cooks Oasis Garden Villa for two...

 Garden villa got morning sun which was perfect for lazy morning coffees and reading on the deck. Villa had everything to be self-sufficient and within walking distance to numerous spots for dinner/drinks out. Hosts are amazing - would definitely stay again.
