Beautiful Gardens Very Close to Muri

 Everything was perfekt. Great hospitality from the owners who were always very friendly. 

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.

Sam & Tere's Holiday Home

 Our family of 9 (including 2 kids aged 10 and 13) just returned from a 13 day stay at Sam_n_Teres. We utilized all 4 good sized bedrooms. The house is very clean and comfortable. The kitchen was so well equipped, it made it easy (especially with the large BBQ grill) to cook a family dinner for 10 of the 13 nights. The large living room gave us lots of space to play family games. We used the washer and dryer almost every day. Most notable was the kindness of Vaine and husband Sifa- the best! 

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. 

Sam & Tere's Holiday Home

 The house was amazing! Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay, with 8 adults for 10 days we had lots of room. House is situation a 3 min walk or 1 min scooter from the best snorkeling beach on the island. Shops handy and very close to Muri. Perfect deck for sunbathing and relaxing with a cold one! Book Sam & Teres you won't be disappointed!!!
