Anchor’s Rest, a great way to getaway, rest & relax!

This holiday house located on Betela Beach, Rarotonga, Cook Islands, undeniably the best beach on the island, still secret enough that not many people know about it and it will largely be yours! NO crowds unlike Muri Beach. Anchor's Rest will be your home away from home. Great for sunbathing, snorkeling, kayaking, shell collecting and safe swimming for everyone. Snorkeling gear, kayaks and sunlounges are provided with the property. Within walking distance are local dairies, Aroa Beach Inn containing the “Shipwreck Bar”, the Gallery and Cafes.

The sliding doors open from the lounge and dining rooms create a great indoor/outdoor feeling. Enjoy great, balmy evening BBQ’s on the veranda overlooking lush lawns and gardens into the awesome view of the beach, lagoon and sunsets.

Enjoy a fully equipped modern kitchen with dishwasher; the house has 5 great sized bedrooms, the main bedroom with an ensuite. Wi-Fi Internet access is provided through a Telecom Wi-Fi Hotspot for those that just can’t leave the office behind or want to keep in touch via email or FaceBook! TV, media player with a selection of movies & Stereo are all part of the package.

The house sleeps 11 comfortably don't worry even with 11 there is still heaps of room it is a large house. We also provide a cot free of charge if required for the little ones!

Wedding groups and weddings are welcome and it is a great place to have a wedding, on the beach for the ceremony and then on the lawn with a marquee the reception, we are happy to organise this for you, we do charge an additional venue fee if you do want to have a lawn party but we are always open to negotiation. contact Mareko today for details.

  • Anchor's Rest was the perfect spot for our extended family of 11

    Anchor's Rest was the perfect spot for our extended family of 11. The house was well presented and had everything we needed for a great holiday. The pool table was well used by all the adults. Really appreciated the pantry and fridge items available for use too. The lagoon and its clear sandy floor was a treat for our littlies. We would love to return sometime.

    Wow, where to begin, the house in general exceeded my expectations, great facilities and location meeting all the needs for an extended family of seven including teenagers. Swimming and snorkelling fantastic, beach and sunsets amazing, Shripwreck Bar close by for that evening cocktail. Overall would highly recommend staying at Anchor's Rest best family holiday so far. Thanks

  • What a fantastic property, just awesome for the children, we didn't have...

    What a fantastic property, just awesome for the children, we didn't have to go anywhere for fantastic swimming, kayaking and snorkeling. Being right on the water in such a safe spot was stress free and highly enjoyable. The property was well equipped with a store just a couple of minutes walk away and shipwreck bar a two minute walk along the beach.. Would highly recommend to families, our children ranged from 2yrs to 13 and it was brilliant.. I have no doubt we will be back... Thanks Mark

  • A fabulous location with a beautiful safe beach on its doorstep...

    A fabulous location with a beautiful safe beach on its doorstep. Suited our small family group perfectly. Great for all ages. Felt like a family bach holiday with comfortable facilities and extras like BBQ, kayaks, snorkel gear and table tennis table all well used by us. Only reason not given 4 stars is felt kitchen was a bit tired & midweek we did not get a full change of towels, but were able to wash with supplied washing machine. Maybe we misunderstood. Overall magic experience.
