“Perfect!”
Reviewed July 22, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We were a group of six friends having our annual catch up. The house was perfect for our group - bigger than it looks & very well laid out and modern with everything you need. Having the 24hr Supermarket handy was awesome. It was a half hour walk to town or just cross the road and catch the bus either way - fantastic. If you want to take food over go for it, but the supermarkets were very good and not much more than NZ so if you can't be bothered lugging it over I wouldn't. The Bond in town sells a fantastic range of wine and spirits. Wine around $20 for very good NZ brands so again don't stress about bringing over your alcohol. Highly recommend hiring electric bicycles from Polynesian Rentals and circumnavigating the island. Makes cycling a breeze, you get to explore the whole island and stop off at beaches & little shops on the way was so much fun! Restaurants were excellent and again the same or cheaper than NZ for great quality food. All in all the perfect mid winter break for half the price of a resort.

“Beautiful house and location”
Reviewed June 30, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Stayed here with a group of friends. Great 2 level house with 3 bedrooms, 3 queen beds and 2 singles, 2 bathrooms, living and dining areas with an adequate kitchen. Lovely balcony and outdoor deck area with bbq and dining. Pool was well needed as the beach close by is not always suitable for swimming.
There was a 24hr supermarket close by and this was such a convenience, they have an atm there as well. The location was suitable for our needs, buses were frequent enough. The house has connectable wifi, you just need to purchase credit to connect. There is a manager available should you have any queries or concerns whilst staying there, he was quite knowledgeable and helpful.

Issues we had included: the fans - there are no ceiling fans or air con and it can get quite hot at night during the warmer nights. Pedestal fans were provided however were noisy and difficult to cover the room.
Towels - better towels need to be provided considering the expense of the rental and how nice it is, most towels were stained or ratty.
Kitchen: could do with some sharp knives and more serving platters/bowls, the place caters for 8 so this should be reflected.

This place is beautiful and the location is ideal to travel around the island from. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it for large groups or families.

“Amazing House!”
Reviewed June 20, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

This place was perfect! Close to town, and close to great snorkeling spots.

We stayed here for a full week, but could have easily stayed a month. The house is beautiful. A very open layout of the main floor with a number of large sliding doors made the house seem even bigger than it already was. The deck and pool were in terrific shape, and the beach is literally just steps away. All of the bedrooms were very spacious and clean. The wrap around deck was a nice feature also. There is a large dining table inside, as well as a large table on the patio to sit down and have family meals together, and all of the appliances are new which is great to have when you cook some of your meals at home.

Even though the beach is not at all for swimming, it is a beautiful area to walk around and collect shells. The sunrises here were breath-taking every morning. Having the pool was perfect, since you didnt have to pack up all of your stuff to go to the beach. You can literally wake up, have a coconut and lounge poolside for the rest of the day. Though should you want to snorkel, two ideal spots are a very short drive away. Fruits of Rarotonga is to one side and Muri Beach is to the other.

Super Browns 24/7 store (which also has a takeaway window) is pretty much right across the street, and is perfect for any quick bites or drinks. Even though the house is up on the street, it is tucked in far enough that there is no real noise or commotion to bother you.

I would definetly recommend this house, and I would stay here again with no questions asked. Tony was a great host, and was very easy to get a hold of. He stopped by a few times to check on the pool and make sure things were all OK.
