This beautifully renovated beach house has a real ‘homely’ and ‘rustic ‘charm about it, while offering you spectacular morning sunrises, views across the lagoon to our families unspoilt ‘Moto/tropical island’ (known as Ta'akoka) and onwards past the distant wave breaks over the fringing reef…words can’t really explain how beautiful this residence is and the serenity it emulates.

    What a magic spot! We are twice yearly visitors to Rarotonga, and this is by far one of the best houses we have rented. Perfect position right on the lagoon, a short walk along the beach or road to restaurants, cafes, the night market and other resorts, great amenities, plenty of space to spread only issue was the bed was too soft for me but that wouldn't stop me from returning.

  • Our second visit in a year and even better than last time

    Our second visit in a year and even better than last time. No better place to enjoy the delights of Rarotonga. Million dollar views and all the utilities you need. Will definitely be back again.

  • A fabulous property

    A fabulous property. Gorgeous views. Great location -- could walk to everything in Muri and catch the bus to other destinations on the island. Exceptional amount of social space in the house with multiple lounges, dining, deck and patios. Highly recommend this accommodation.
