“5 star stay!” It was our first time in Rarotonga and we didn't know what to expect but what we found at Pae Moana really impressed us from the well appointed rooms to the relaxed 5 star décor, we found every thing was there for a large family to really enjoy their stay, a fully stocked kitchen with all the appliances and gadgets to prepare our own meals. The beach and reef straight out the back door is arguably one of the nicest part of the island [and it was all ours].
We will definitely be back there again... Soon!
“A private tropical hideaway!” A delightful, peaceful and airy cottage perfumed with gardenias around the property. We enjoyed the relaxing porch looking out on a tropical vista and magnificent view of the central mountains. It was walking distance from the popular Muri lagoon, with fab snorkelling. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring for shells and uto coconut at the beach over the road. Tony was a discreet but attentive neighbour, who was happy to answer questions and suggest places to visit.
“Great Location...” We stayed for 10 nights, arrived in the early morning to a clean cottage. We walked into town the next day and picked up a scooter for our stay, took about an hour, but on the bike about 7 minutes. Nice and close to the sea, pool was clean and outside area manicured. Tony came in to greet us on the second day to check everything was okay, and was a great source of information.
We found the location to be excellent because it was close to town and only 10 minutes to Muri Beach... the best of both worlds. Might suggest if you are a light sleeper to bring some earplugs, as road is in close proximity to the cottage. Super Brown 24 HR was literally across the road if you need anything; petrol and food.
We really enjoyed having our own space rather than staying at a resort, especially when the weather was not agreeable for outside activities, we had space and amenities to chill out in.
We would stay there again.
“Home from home!” I stumbled onto this place when I was driving around the island and loved how it was on the main road but yet so private! It's located 2 mins fron the beach and walking distance to shops and the resorts!
The house it self is fantastic feels like home as soon as u enter! Very spacious open plan living and an amazing deck to sit out enjoying the weather n views of the mountain! Also the best passion fruit tree with fruit the size of tennis balls amazingly in a Gin and tonic!
Have stayed there 3 times and will do so next time!
“A little slice of paradise” I can't rave enough about avaro House and avaro Cottage. A group of seven of us booked the two houses over a year ago and just got back from 9 days in Paradise. The house and cottage have everything you could need to make your stay easy and relaxing and there are ocean views from every room in the main house. The pool is an awesome added bonus and falling asleep at night to the sound of the ocean and wind blowing through the coconut trees was bliss. Awesome location between town and the beautiful beaches of Muri and Titikaveka. We had a totally awesome host who visited us on our first morning to make sure we were all settled in and filled us in on all the best sights on the island. She was only ever a phone call away!! Can't say enough about this place. Book it now!!
“Missing the island...” We had a great Family Holiday! ...We were missing the island as soon as we got back!
I can definitely recommend this place. The Villa was Great! What a Excellent location / beach for family & kids with safe swimming and snorkelling right out front, our two little ones had a ball!
This was our third trip to Raro, we normally stay in Muri but have found it's getting pretty popular & busy these days.
So it was great to stay at the villa and escape the crowds.
...We'll be back next year!
