Sunset Quay Four Bedroom Holiday Home

 The house held everything you would expect and more. Loved the sunsets, and the pool was amazing. The house was perfect for us all, the kitchen was well equipped. It was nice to have a dishwasher so we did not have to worry about the dishes. We found Lara and Clara very easy to communicate with by email from a distance. The Van made getting around the Island very easy and convenient. Thanks again for sharing your wonderful place with us. Looking forward to our next visit.

20 metres from a stunning beach

 What I liked about this property is that is was nice and clean and also the location. Opposite this holiday home was Charlies which is a small cafe/bar where we ate and also u could hire scooters, kayaks, paddle boards and snorkelling equipment etc... It is a beautiful little home and we definitely enjoyed staying here. 

Orani - perfect for a budget conscious family!

 Great close to Muri, cheap accom had everything inside, close to fruits of Rarotonga was a perfect location if youre attending a wedding near Muri 

Orani - perfect for a budget conscious family!

Orani - perfect for a budget conscious family!

 We had an excellent stay at Orani, the house was just as was described and suited our holiday needs perfectly. It was very spacious and had an excellent deck that we spent lots of time on. The house location was perfect for us, so close to excellent snorkeling spots and just a short scooter ride to anything we needed. The brewery just up the road had some tasty beer as well! Thanks for the awesome holiday and we hope to make it back one day!!
