We stayed at Sunrise for our third time in September 2016. Caryn has always been very welcoming and on each occasion picked up up from late night flights at the airport. On each stay we have always seen whales out front off our balcony. This stay we counted 7 humpbacks quite close. The bungalows are set in very attractive gardens... More

It is basic accommodation but our beachfront bungalow had a most glorious view. There as a pool and bbq onsite which we did not use, and I understand if you... More

We stayed at SBB when we travelled to Rarotonga in September. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay especially our children. We stayed in the big house above where Caryn resides and the house was great! On arrival it was tidy and clean and everything we needed was there! So I really do recommend this house for families who plan on looking for... More

Had read a few negative reviews about this property before I left & was worried but we were fine thankfully. Caryn picked us up at airport no problems. We didn't use airport transfer back. She runs the place on her own and has an open door policy although I can understand why some people would find her rude. She could... More

We asked to change room after the first night, because our 'double bed' was two shoddy singles pushed together, I got an electric shock plugging in the toaster which soon afterwards stopped working and the kettle was also broken.
