“Amazing House!”
Reviewed 20 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

This place was perfect! Close to town, and close to great snorkeling spots.

We stayed here for a full week, but could have easily stayed a month. The house is beautiful. A very open layout of the main floor with a number of large sliding doors made the house seem even bigger than it already was. The deck and pool were in terrific shape, and the beach is literally just steps away. All of the bedrooms were very spacious and clean. The wrap around deck was a nice feature also. There is a large dining table inside, as well as a large table on the patio to sit down and have family meals together, and all of the appliances are new which is great to have when you cook some of your meals at home.

Even though the beach is not at all for swimming, it is a beautiful area to walk around and collect shells. The sunrises here were breath-taking every morning. Having the pool was perfect, since you didnt have to pack up all of your stuff to go to the beach. You can literally wake up, have a coconut and lounge poolside for the rest of the day. Though should you want to snorkel, two ideal spots are a very short drive away. Fruits of Rarotonga is to one side and Muri Beach is to the other.

Super Browns 24/7 store (which also has a takeaway window) is pretty much right across the street, and is perfect for any quick bites or drinks. Even though the house is up on the street, it is tucked in far enough that there is no real noise or commotion to bother you.

I would definetly recommend this house, and I would stay here again with no questions asked. Tony was a great host, and was very easy to get a hold of. He stopped by a few times to check on the pool and make sure things were all OK.

“Spacious, comfy house with a great pool”
Reviewed 2 May 2013 for a stay in March 2013

A group of seven of us stayed here for my daughter's 30th birthday. We enjoyed the Cook Islands and the house was very spacious and quite adequate although a little more attention to details would make it really great! Minor quibbles, included blunt knives in the kitchen, not enough large saucepans to cook for a large group, and the towels, which were pretty stained and not up to scratch. We also thought the upstairs balcony was underutilised and could do with daybeds or hammocks.
On the plus side, Tony the manager is attentive and helpful and neighbours on both sides friendly and welcoming. We enjoyed having the pool as the beach although close by, is not suitable for swimming due to rocks and coral and very shallow water. Also, previous guests had left some supplies which is great when you arrive, not having to buy things like pepper, salt etc. It's very handy having the 24 hour shop just across the road, and the bus passes the front door.
We hired pushbikes and rode about, healthy and fun and made it easy to pick up fresh fish and veggies from the roadside stalls. All in all we had a great relaxing holiday here.
