Relaxe in quietness
Ideal for a couple looking for perfect Raro holiday
The studio apartment was ideal for our purposes of privacy, accessibility to the beach, quietness and access to a pool. The unit is very much a 'kiwi bach' style, ideal for self catering (which makes Raro more affordable). Head to the market on Saturday morning to stock up for your week. Some foods are very affordable at the local supermarket too while some are very expensive.
As it was quiet with no light pollution, sleep was easy. For some reason, the rooster life was absent (could have the dog to thank for that) so no early morning wake ups either.
Doug assisted with a very affordable car rental. The best cafe in town is a 200m walk and within 500m are two friendly beach side bars to watch the sun go down and listen to music. Good swimming and snorkeling nearby too. The bed was comfortable and the shower great.
I would advise having the address and a phone number handy for the immigration card and any other similar requirements.
Lovely hosts in a great spot. We were met at the airport, and dropped off after 8 days, such a blessing! We were also given a scooter FOC for the week. We relaxed, read, and generally chilled for the whole stay and felt thoroughly restored at the end of it. Recommended, and would happily return again to stay.
Sundowner beach Bach was perfect for us being well appointed in a great location . Although Doug and Nooroa were on the same property they were very respectful of our privacy. Access to the beach was immediate and the use of the pool was great.
On arrival a bowl of fresh fruit was provided, clean linen was delivered frequently. Nooroa and Doug could not do enough for us with a very pleasant and cheerful manner.
Resident dog Meg was a joy to have around.
We would thoroughly recommend this clean tidy property with great hosts and look forward to our next stay at Doug's place. Thanks to Doug and Nooroa for the airport transfers and scooter along with all our learnings of Rarotonga, we had a fabulous stay.

A perfect spot in paradise
Firstly we would like to thank Doug and his wife for being great hosts. Being met on our arrival at the Rarotongan airport by Doug was a service we had not expected, he drove us to the property and made us feel very welcome. For us the property was the perfect spot in paradise. We are a retired couple, we were able to fully relax during our stay. having to swimming pool available for our use was great, we were able to use it every day. The facilities at the property were as advised, sitting on the deck with a beer and wine in hand, the barbeque sizzling away with local fresh fish, purchased each morning, and the sun setting in front of us, the best. The bed, which for us is key to a good holiday, we need a good nights sleep, was excellent, comfortable, great sleeps every night. On our last night, after we had returned our rental car, and needed to visit friends on the island, Doug went out of his way to drive us to our friends, and pick us up later that night. We felt this was above and beyond normal service, and was very much appreciated. On our final morning, when we needed to dropped of at the airport prior to 6am, Doug was there at our door at 5.30am, and delivered us to the airport. On the way he also stopped to pick up our daughter and son in-law from there accommodation. A great host. As we have said the property was perfect, great facilities, great hosts. A big thankyou to Doug and his wife. A perfect spot in paradise.
