We have just arrived back to NZ today after 11 nights at this holiday home, there where 9 people in our group, and the house had more than enough space for us all to have our own separate rooms, There was everything and more to make for a fantastic holiday, The pool was amazing, and the outdoor area/deck , was fantastic for meals and sunset cocktails. not to mention only a few steps away from an amazing beach.
Rick who is the owner/ maintenance man lives in the unit next door, we were grateful for the pool and grounds to be kept perfect, that made this even more like our own piece of paradise . he was very friendly, and we enjoyed chatting and learning a little more about the island from his own experiences
.Due to the refurbishing happening at Sunset Resort and next door, Rick was very concerned that it was affecting our holiday, we understand that things need to be upgraded, and no time is ever a good time ,so this was not a concerned to us. We were so impressed with the recycling that the island is trying to enforce, that it was a pleasure to help.. We have already asked to pencil in for another holiday. and from what Rick has advise he has planned for the house, this can only make this already amazing house even better.. I am sorry that the previous review, hasn't done this property justice.
Can't wait to return. Thanks again Rick and Jo, you have both been amazing in helping us have an fantastic time. :)
What an amazing house, huge pool, crystal clear beach right outside the door & very comfy beds, this property I can't fault! but a little warning the landlord does live next door we felt like he was monitoring us everyday to the point of uncomfortable never a day passed with out him telling us off, for the most-stupidest-things-every! We would never stay here again knowing the landlord is living right next door.
We were a group of 7 adults and 4 children (0-3yrs) visiting Rarotonga in September, this accommodation couldn't have been better. Beautiful large house with fully equipped kitchen, new bathrooms, plenty of seats for everyone to relax and space to spread out. So many extra things that made this accommodation stand out- private location/ bikes/ kayaks/ snorkelling gear/ reef shoes/pool/ outdoor covered picnic areas and the whole place is beautifully decorated. To top it off they really did provide everything to make the holiday easier with small kiddies- child gate/ high chair/ port a cots/ plastic plates/ dress up box and blow up rings for the pool. Great location as beautiful sunsets every night, good snorkelling right in front of the house, easy trip into town to shops. Walking distance to several hire stores and eateries. Will definitely plan to come back!
This would have to be one of the best places you could stay at in Rarotonga. The house is large with 5 big bedrooms. Good size kitchen and lounge. The bathrooms are both really well fitted out. The outside area is amazing. An awesome pool which got heaps of use from our group of seven. Massive sheltered areas some with views out over the beach. The owners present the property in impeccable condition and are very easy to deal with. Our family really enjoyed there stay here and would like to think that we may return to this beautiful house on another occasion.
Absolutely amazing holiday home. Fully equipped with everything you need. We celebrated a family birthday here with 5 adults and 5 children staying in this home for 8 days. An additional two adults stayed next door at Sunset Resort, so the location worked perfectly for us. The house is very spacious, comfortable and clean. The swimming pool was invaluable, we swam at least twice a day. There is good snorkeling right in front of the house, Edgewater Resort is within walking distance, a delicious bakery is at the end of the driveway. This is the second visit we've had to Rarotonga and we will definitely pick Onu Bay for our next visit, this holiday home is perfect.
