“Perfect Getaway for Extended Family/Friends”
Reviewed November 6, 2012 for a stay in November 2012

We booked both the house and the cottage for our weeklong stay at Avaro House. It was fantastic. The house is spacious and modern -a home away from home - it has everything you need to cook, clean, relax, chill. The 3 bedrooms are spacious as is the lounge/dining area. The outdoor flow was superb - bbq evenings sitting around the pool with friends and family were special magical moments. To hear the waves continuously rolling in at night was wonderful.
Our girls stayed in the cottage and while they had a slight problem navigating the stairs at night (am) after a few drinks, they enjoyed their privacy and space. ( Although they do want to move into the house if we are fortunate to have it next time we go :-))
It is situated very close to the town (5 minute drive??) and also to the 24 hr grocery store which is only a hop skip and jump across the road.
The manager Tony was in every day to clean and check the pool and to clear any debris that was on the property. He was professional yet at the same time friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed out stay - and we are hoping to go back again next year. Our ages ranged from 6 yrs old - 77 yrs old - and everyone had the BEST TIME EVER. This for us was a luxury holiday at an affordable price. Thanks so much Tony.

“Perfect”
Reviewed October 19, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

Beautiful home views location and weather
We were 3 ks away from Avarua and 6 ks from muri which for us was perfect... We even walked every day to town or muri beach...
We had our own pool and rented the 2 homes on the property
The neighbours were great, the surroundings were great, the view was great
The shop was a 5 mins walk Super Brown sold everything.
We talk a great deal of our food meats cheeses salamis cereal just so we could spend our time laying about the pool
The home was entertaining friendly, teenager friendly and large family friendly
We hope to be back as for us it was perfect
Thank you avaro house for an awesome holiday

“Wonderful Stay”
Reviewed September 10, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We booked both Avaro House and Avaro Cottage for our trip with extended family and friends and found that it suited us perfectly. The location is absolutely beautiful and also convenient; Avaro house is spacious and has everything that we needed to make our trip comfortable. The children loved the pool and all the outside spaces. The manager of the property was helpful and easy to deal with - in short, I would definately reccomend this to anyone, and we hope to be back some time in the future!

“Perfection!”
Reviewed August 21, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We had the most amazing time staying at the Avaro House. The photos of the property do not do it justice. The bedrooms and pool were far bigger than they look in the photos.
The beach is a coral beach, but we had a lot of fun walking through the rock pools and taking the kayaks out to sea.
We cooked most of our meals at home and having the 24 hour Super Brown store just down the road was so handy for picking up bits and pieces (there is also an ATM and petrol pumps).
Staying at the Avaro House definitely made our holiday the most enjoyable it could have possibly been. We cant wait to come back! Thank you Tony!
