Kokacabana Beach House .
What a find. We were looking for a house for our family close to the new Nautilus Resort for our Nieces wedding. This house could not have been more perfect.
Right beside the resort, walking distance to almost everything, right on the beach but private due to the well designed walkway from house to beach. Great snorkeling either side of the island right out front, walking distance to many of Muris resorts, Cafes Bars & events. The house has all the amenities we required & has been well designed with insect screens on all doors & widows for great ventilation plus ceiling fans if needed & air con which we didnt need.
Adam & Sarah were the perfect hosts, always only a phone call away. We are already booking Kokacabana Beach House again for next year.
We stayed for 9 days with our 3 kids (9, 5 & 4). The house was as described online, bigger though than expected, clean, tidy and with everything included for a pleasant stay. One thing that I did miss though with 3 children was an outside clothes line but the clothes horse provided was sufficient.
Loved the location. Easy walk to Muri activities, and Muri night markets for a quick yummy feed. Loved how the palms out front provided privacy from passing beach walkers. The house is a great distance from the road and Muri resorts for that added privacy amongst the action of Muri lagoon.
We had a wonderful 10-day stay here...plenty of room, nice kitchen and a large semi-open deck.
The villa was clean and comfortable. The managers, Sarah and Adam, are friendly and always available for suggestions and guidance. The villa is quite private and just after our departure, a pool was put in for villa use.
We preferred the beach with easy walking access to everything in Muri. While snorkeling is not the best in front of the villa, there are other great venues right up the road.
We really enjoyed our stay on Rarotonga and actively kayaked, hiked, kite surfed, snorkeled and went out scuba diving despite a tropical storm that was stirring things up.
We highly recommend this villa.
I would have to say that the Kokocabana Beach House was perfect. What a brilliant holiday we had.
7 of my best girlfriends joined me in Rarotonga to celebrate my birthday and we couldn't have asked for more.
The house is lovely, well appointed with loads of space, well decorated and supplied with all you could need.
Bathrooms are spacious and there were heaps of bath towels, beach towels, washers, mats, hand towels, you name it there was a towel for every thing.
Beds were comfortable with crisp sheets and plenty of pillows.
The kitchen has everything including a large fridge with plenty of freezer space, a huge cooker, microwave, toaster etc. There is a large water filter unit so buying water is not necessary.
Kokocabana House has a very neat, leafy and private garden with an outside shower to wash off that sticky sand from the beach which is only meters away and 4 excellent kayaks to explore the reef and nearby island.
There are small shops very close to the house with an excellent bakery supplying fresh pastries and bread (even fresh baked gluten free bread and cakes).
The night food market in 10 minutes walk away so cooking is pretty unnecessary .
Sarah and Adam were terrific and the selection of fresh fruit, milk and starter packs of tea, coffee, sugar and cereal were well received.
Do yourself a favour and visit Muri Beach, resorts are ok but having your own house is the absolute best way to go.
Kokacabana Beach House was wonderful! The home, the grounds, the access to the beach were all really well done. The only reason I gave this a 4 instead of 5 is because we had a few insect problems in the home that could have been remedied with some ant traps and something to deter cockroaches. This is a humid climate and insects are expected; however, something to get rid of them would have been helpful. The home is very well kept, so it is not a cleanliness issue. It really is a beautiful property!
