“Spacious and quiet Cottage near Lagoon”
Reviewed January 23, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

person found this review helpful

This beautiful cottage located at 250m off the main road is very convenient, spacy ( approx 100m2 ), with all amenities to cook, wash the laundry and more. Beds are new and comfortable. Linda, the owner even have beach towels, masks, snorkels and fins for her clients. WIFI is available, providing a credit bought at Telecom. This is the way it works in this island where all communications are via satellites. The location is very clean ( this is a Swiss writting :-)) ! ), and the lagoon just across the main road. It only takes 5mn to be on a wonderful beach. Bus stop is very near and very convenient. We really enjoyed staying there for nearly a week in January 2015. I recommend it, Linda is a lovely, smily and helpful host.

“Privacy, Peace and everthing we needed for a relaxing stay”

This accommodation is much more than a cottage. Modern and spacious we enjoyed complete privacy overlooking the lush green lawn and garden. Our hosts were more than happy to help us and everything was provided to make our stay comfortable and relaxing - from fresh fruit, milk & bread on our arrival plus all tea and coffee making ingredients. A short walk to the beautiful lagoon with fresh beach towels & snorkelling equipment available made it easy to wander to the beach to see the variety of fish and coral. Plenty of space and airflow in the rooms to return to afterwards. Handy to some tasty local cafés and restaurants and about 10 minutes drive to Muri shops and night market. We totally recommend Harmony Cottage and hope to stay again in the future.

“PERFECT place to stay”
Reviewed October 14, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

I was lucky enough to spend a month at the cottage, and if you are looking for a comfortable home away from home, this is the perfect spot. It is in the great location of Arorangi, tucked back from the main road so it is nice and peaceful and quiet. As per the photos, it is very spacious, CLEAN, tidy, light, airy, and tastefully decorated. There's a great bathroom, shower and all the laundry facilities, so you can have a completely self contained holiday. The kitchen is well stocked, and the drawers have everything you could ever need!
Linda and her husband are really sweet and they allow you a lot of privacy but are there if you need anything. It's great to have a car as there is a safe space to park and lots to do in the area. Wigmores supermarket a 5 minute drive away. The beach is great and its a short easy walk down the road. Nice towels available at the cottage.
I will miss my time there and have no hesitation recommending it to friends and family!

“ALL YOU NEED FOR A GREAT RARO HOLIDAY”
Reviewed September 22, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

people found this review helpful

A stand alone very private, spacious and comfortable new cottage with a fully equiped kitchen plus snorkle gear, books etc - everything you neeed for a very enjoyable holiday. Dont be mislead by the fact it is inland as the beach is only 300 meters away - great for the sunsets and swimming. If you are thirsty the Shipwreck bar is only 200 metres to the north and welcomes drop in thirsty guests. Local village shops close by. Any questions - no problem - Linda lives next door. The weather for our trip was not always fine and we were very pleased to be staying in such a spacious comfortable cottage. By now the brochure should read a 2 bedroom cottage. Conclusion - we have no hesitation in recommending Harmony Cottage and Linda's hospitality for a very enjoyable Rarotongan holiday .

“Absolute hum-dinger of a cottage”
Reviewed September 19, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

I came to the Cook Islands for a wedding and found this cottage on HomesforHire.com

It was a brilliant move, I had independence, comfort and great access to beaches and town alike.

The cottage was amazing, comfortable and has lovely décor. It was easy to cool and easy to stay warm at night. It was just off the main road, which was great and only a short walk down to lovely beaches.

I was able to buy groceries locally and with what I brought from NZ I ate really well and had all the equipment needed from a bbq through to Microwave and oven. Great Laundry and so I didn't have to go anywhere I didn't want too.

There was also towels and snorkelling gear available for free use.

The hosts were wonderful and easy to deal with.

Regards

Dave Burgess

My family and I loved the cottage! With everything you need at your finger tips. The cottage is in a great location. It gives you a nice relaxing feeling being amongst the surroundings of the gardens and hearing the ocean. We would definitely be staying there again when we visit the beautiful Rarotonga again.

We felt relaxed due to the semi rural location also due to an excellent standard of cleanliness .We found the unit to be spacious and airy. Everything was not far away to get to from the unit and there is a really good beach to snorkel in just down the lane across the road.
