We had a lovely week at Patricia's place. We rented one of the self-contained bungalows that totally filled our expectations. Everything there is clean, practical, well maintained and with access to snorkelling gears and washing machine as a bonus. A fruit basket, toasts and cereals were kindly provided for our first breakfast. Having specified that we were vegans, we got...

Being self-contained was a big bonus as was the 2 minute walk to one of the best snorkelling beaches on the island.

We stayed in one of Aroa Kainga's bungalows for three nights and had an amazing time. The bungalow was incredibly spacious, comfortable, and clean. Plus, it was only a short 200m walk to one of the best beaches on Rarotonga for snorkeling and relaxing. Tricia, the owner, was incredibly kind and provided us with great information about the area.

Kia orana & meitaki. Aroakainga bungalows are the perfect location with easy access to snorkelling & swimming. The bungalows are well appointed, spotless, private with veranda and BBQ, yet just off the main road. Tricia is the ideal hostess, welcoming and knowledgeable on all matters Rarotonga. Kia orana te manuiri. Chris

Stayed for a week and couldn't have asked for more. Very well equipped bungalow a little back from the main road so quiet location (apart from the roosters - no getting away from those anywhere in Raro!) and really good location halfway between Muri Beach and Avarua township. Tricia's local knowledge was absolutely invaluable and made a big difference, even...

This bungalow was a lovely place to stay in Rarotonga. It was very peaceful. The bungalow was very well equipped with everything you would need...including reef shoes! The beach was less than a 5 min walk away with good snorkeling.

This is a very quiet and secluded place to stay. There are no negatives only positive things to say. The bungalow is 300mtrs from the beach.
