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!!!

Sunset Quay Four Bedroom Holiday Home

 The property exceeded all expectations, it was immaculate and had all the comforts of home plus more. Staying at Sunset Quay really made our second trip to Rarotonga all the more enjoyable. The first time we stayed at a resort, but I would recommend Sunset Quay over any resort- we were warmly welcomed, could cook our own meals, enjoyed lazing in the sun on the deck by the pool, had BBQs, & went swimming in the beach only metres from the house. We would definitely recommend this property.
