  • Rukuruku haven was perfect

    Rukuruku haven was perfect. We have stayed in many local houses. This was by far the best. Across the road from the greatest snorkeling beach. Felt like we were at the island surroundings. Bus stop across road. Lots of shade at the back of house. The third room has two singles beds, which was perfect rather than a double. Nice kitchen open plan lounge onto huge front deck. Loved being able to use free snorkel gears. The tribe of chickens were awesome. We will be back!!

  • Rukuruku haven has the basic necessities which is all we needed situated...

    Rukuruku haven has the basic necessities which is all we needed situated in an ideal place, across the road from the best swimming spot on the island, less than a minute away from Charlie’s (the best and largest fish sandwich ever) and 2mins drive to Muri night markets, entertainment and activities. We will definitely come back and highly recommend this place to others.
