    The property was very clean on arrival and fresh milk in the fridge was great. The house is right nextdoor to fruits of Rarotonga which is opposite one of the best snorkeling areas in Raro. The location is very convenient to Muri approx. 30 minute walk and a 5 minute drive. About 15 minute drive going the other way into Arorangi. Great deck which we utilised at night a lot to sit and play cards while watching the water. Would definitely recommend Rukuruku.

    We were a family of 5 and absolutely loved our time here and would highly recommend it. Perfect for the kids to have the large lawn area to play on. We were directly across the road from "The Fruits Of Rarotonga" best snorkling on the island. It was perfect to pop across the road everyday for our swim without having to get in the car and travel somewhere. We felt very central to everything. There is a bus stop directly across the road. Loved our time here. Would love to come back.

  • Excellent location and the house was just what we needed

    Excellent location and the house was just what we needed. Having a house that has mosquito nets in all windows made it so easy for us as our kids react very badly to the bites. They had lots of fun and we as parents managed to relax and enjoy our time. Will defiantly come back.
