We have just returned from Avana Waterfront apartments and they provided the perfect place to relax and enjoy the waterfront in a tropical paradise. The apartments are comfortable and spacious, Desiree cannot do enough to help and make sure everything goes smoothly. We enjoyed the access to the lagoon and the jetty rather than direct beach front. There are kayaks on the waterfront to use in the lagoon and a brief kayak across the lagoon takes you to the white sand of the small islands in the lagoon. A small piece of bread thrown into the water from the jetty brings myriads of tropical fish around. It is a short drive or about a 15 minute walk to the cafes and restaurants at Muri Beach which we found was a bonus. We look forward to going back to oasis of tranquility.

The place is nice. It is just next to the beach. Drag the kayak down the water and start kayaking. Love it. The host (Desiree) was very nice and friendly. Very accommodating. The free fresh tropical fruits were lovely and tasty. Will return in our next visit again next year.

Amazing place to stay and enjoy Rarotonga. With his own jetty and lagoon is impossible to feel more confortable there. Elyn was always an excellent host and all was perfect. Highly recommended. If we come back we know where to stay.

Very friendly and helpful staff. The apartment was really nice. Quite large, and had just about everything that you would need. Nice comfortable beds. Outside there were tables and seating, as well as a gas BBQ. There is a wooden pier from which you can swim, fish, or just feed the amazing coloured fish. Kayaks are available to use at no charge. Very good value for money.

We stayed for 10 nights and truely relaxed. The studio unit we had was lovely - we were on the ground floor in unit 10 right at the end. The room was nicely decorated with plenty of room for 2 and enough to accommodate visitors too. A lovely deck area is also a nice spot for enjoying the view. The staff were wonderful and they clean your unit / change the bed & towels every 3 days. Pick up from the airport was also great. Not a 5 star as a bit older but definitely nothing wrong with it. Really comfy bed and a ceiling fan for sleeping at night. The jetty was great and we tried fishing off it a few times but while we had fun no fish. Would definitely recommend it.
