The large 5 meter wide sliding door opens up onto a North-East facing deck for complete indoor-outdoor flow and will let in the gentle ocean breeze coming off the lagoon. The studio villa is surrounded by a fence for privacy. At the back of the villa the bathroom door opens up onto another private deck.
Set off the backroads of Muri Beach on the sunrise side of of island, our large studio villa offers the perfect setting for exploring the island of Rarotonga. The villa itself sits halfway up a small hill, nestled between tropical foliage. This is a fantastic place for those after a more quiet holiday home away from the hustle and bustle of the main road.
You'll find us 20 minutes away from the airport and we recommend hiring a car to get around. Another option is to rent a bike or use the bus services which run frequently.
A short stroll of about 10 minutes from the villa will take you into the heart of Muri. There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy water sports in Muri including snorkeling, night paddle boarding and kayaking on the lagoon.
Other places of interest nearby are the Te Vara Nui cultural show and village tour, the Muri Food Night Markets and the Te Manava Spa and Massages. Nearby beaches include the beautiful Titikaveka and Vaaimanga located within a short drive of our villa which we think are the best spots for snorkeling.
Avarua, the capital of the island, is great for shopping, museum visits, art galleries and other attractions such as the Punanga Nui Farmer’s Market (every Saturday), the Rarotonga Golf Club and the cross-island ‘Needle’ walk.
