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. 

Sunset Quay Four Bedroom Holiday Home

 Not only would I recommend this property to friends and family but I will stay here again should I return to Rarotonga. The location is right on the beach which has swings off palm trees on it, a sunset beach bar down the road and a family mart just a short stroll down the street. The house itself is even better than it looks in the pictures and has everything there, you feel like you have your own private resort and never have to leave. 

Muri Beachfront, Ocean View

 Right from the start we felt at home. The cottage was charming, the view was great, neighbours friendly and we loved how the visiting animals made us welcome too. Would highly recommend as a relaxing break for couples who enjoy lifes simple pleasures. 

Muri Beachfront, Ocean View

 awesome spot if ya looking for a private bungalo close to muri right on the water in mint location 

Orani - perfect for a budget conscious family!

 We loved our 12 night stay at Orani. The house was clean and comfortable, the insect screens a definite bonus, and the large deck the perfect place to spend time reading our books and watching life go by, or if you're up early enough to see the sunrise! Muri was just a short 20 minute walk away, and Charlie's (fantastic fish Panini and fruit smoothies together with the friendliest service) just 10 minutes walk in the other direction. A lovely place to unwind - private but with lots of space. 

Avana Waterfront Apartments- Apt # 5 - 2 bedroom

 nice relaxed location. a quick stroll to The Moorings for lunch, and a 2 minute drive to Muri Beach for the best swimming on the island.
