We stayed here for 10 days in December of 2015. The beginning of our stay was not so good, since the internet on the islands is governed by a monopoly company and their server was busted just the week before our arrival. This caused our arrival details to be lost in internet limbo. This meant that Caryn, our host, was...

Travelling on a budget, this was our chance to stay in an oceanfron bungalow in this South Pacific gorgeous island. We stayed for almoust four weeks. The owner, Caryn, takes great pride in keeping the place ship-shape, working from dawn to dusk 7 days a week. She let us use the bikes and the washer and was helpful in so...

Caryn the onsite manager bends over backwards to help guests. There are two great snorkling sites right down the road. You can walk in off the beach and see hundreds of fish close to shore. One is called the fruits of Ratatonga and the other is across from the dive shop. Once again Caryn, thanks again for a great stay...

I stayed in the Garden Bungalow for a period of 3 weeks, the bungalow was large, spacious and clean. If you have the money, the oceanfront bungalows are definitely the go! Although there isn't much of a beach, Muri is just around the corner and there were free bikes to use which could easily get you there in a few...

Fantastic place to stay right on the beach. We enjoyed sitting out on the deck of our bungalow looking out over the ocean while we ate breakfast each morning and drifting off to sleep listening to the waves crashing right outside. Caryn, the host, was friendly, helpful and easy going. She let us stay until 7pm on the day of...

Firstly the communication leading up to our holiday was great, we emailed Caryn direct and she was great to deal with. When we arrived in raro after a long wait at the airport we touched base with Caryn who was flustered trying to find all her guests. Our accommodation was awesome we stayed in the two bedroom house which was...

Caryn was great, picked my husband and I up at the airport and showed us around town, she also booked our activities for us. Enjoyed our stay, rooms were clean however the kitchen could have been cleaned a little better. The refrigerator was stocked with milk, eggs, bread, butter and jam, we did not have to go out for breakfast....

We stayed here recently for a Honeymoon. Very nice with close access to beach, not the best beach on the island but you are in touching distance of Muri beach and all the delights on offer. We were picked up by a shuttle bus organised by the owner Caryn whom is wonderful and welcomes all her guests at all hours,...

Our room was constantly opened and left unlocked by the owner in our absence. We felt that guests there are an inconvenience to the proprietor, and the room was shabby and not particularly clean.
