We stayed here about a month ago. It was great, being an experienced traveller to Rarotonga, it is the perfect place for travellers who want their own space all in a comfortable bungalow. Highly recommended, it had everything that we needed. Lovely host too! Definitely would stay there again!

Perfectly located in the low density region of Aroa Beach, with easy access to Avarua, Muri, restaurants and swimming/snorkeling. The bungalow provided spotlessly clean,well equipped accommodation for a couple (although a double pull-out was available, more than 2 people would be impractical), 2 mins walk to good snorkeling beach. Tricia, our hostess, could not have been more accommodating and welcoming,...

Love this place and for location close to restaurants, the best snorkelling in Rarotonga and of course the fully self contained bungalows with Trisha as your host you cannot go past this place. Thanks for another gorgeous holiday in paradise and thanks for introducing me in to your yoga group - I loved it!

We loved our stay with Tricia, who makes you feel so welcome, and loved the spacious, private bungalows. Fully self contained units with verandah and BBQ. We loved the location, close enough to the beach, yet off the main road so very quiet. Only a 2 minute walk to some of the best snorkelling on Rarotonga. At the end of...

Our third visit back and on walking it it just feels like home. Was great getting the breakfast parcel on arrival. Accomodation spotless and very comfortable, especially the loungers on the deck where many a nap was had. Would always recommend this accomodation as the beach is only 200 metres down a straight road, the local shop so very close,...

We found the bungalows through Tripadvisor and they turned out to be just what we were looking for. They gave the freedom to have our own space and cook when we wanted or easily hire a scooter or catch a bus from the end of the road when we wanted to explore. They were impeccably clean and well kitted out,...

I have been to Rarotonga on vacation for the last 5 years. I have stayed at large and smaller resorts on the beaches which are often the main attraction. This place really takes the " Blue Ribbon". It is not on the beach but only a short walk to it. It is very quiet and sheltered. Surrounded by tropical palms,...

If I could give it more than 5 stars, I would. This place is amazing - not just the location, feel of the place, fruit on site or beauty of the island, but that which seems to be missing so much - a personal (and then some touch). Looking for a tropical adventure, where do we go but to Trip...

We loved the garden setting a few minutes away from the beach. It was windy some days while were in Rarotonga and it gave us the best of both worlds to go for a swim and return to our bungalow to read and relax out of the wind. Tricia, the owner is an excellent host. She provided fruit for us...

This place was a great find. I was trekking by myself, and had planned on visiting the Cook Islands for quite a while, but was looking for a place where I could have privacy as well enjoy what the island had to offer. I found it in this wonderful little bungalow. It is a two minute walk from one of...
