Sunrise Beach Bungalows, where do I start. Firstly it was 2 separate bookings for 2 couples, one made through a booking site and the other directly on their website. We arrive at the airport after booking transfers, and no one there to collect us. Now reading the reviews, this should have been a warning sign. So its 0130am and now...

Thankyou for your comments. All airport transfers are prebooked by the property due to prior request which was done that night the same as the three rooms that had arrived on that flight and the previously. The room was ready for the one couple who had booked it. The manager made three phone calls on their 2am arrival to secure...

Serene location with spectacular views . You can watch the sunrise if you have an oceanview bungalow. Hermit crabs to keep you company at night. Sea breeze to keep you cool night and day, just 6 minutes drive from Muri Night Markets. Caryn is a lovely hard working lady who was very warm and welcoming. Her open hospitality made our...

I am an accountant and came over feeling that I may be bored. WRONG. Sunrise is fantastic. We used the pool every day. The view. Million dollar view in anyone's language. A few minutes away from magnificent beaches. The greatest thing is that it's not too big. It's quiet, clean and relaxing. Twelve days and I am not bored. That's...

We stayed at Sunrise for our third time in September 2016. Caryn has always been very welcoming and on each occasion picked up up from late night flights at the airport. On each stay we have always seen whales out front off our balcony. This stay we counted 7 humpbacks quite close. The bungalows are set in very attractive gardens...

We stayed only one night at the end of our trip and were happy with our choice. It represented great value and the host could not have been more helpful. It is basic accommodation but our beachfront bungalow had a most glorious view. There as a pool and bbq onsite which we did not use, and I understand if you...

We stayed at SBB when we travelled to Rarotonga in September. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay especially our children. We stayed in the big house above where Caryn resides and the house was great! On arrival it was tidy and clean and everything we needed was there! So I really do recommend this house for families who plan on looking for...

Had read a few negative reviews about this property before I left & was worried but we were fine thankfully. Caryn picked us up at airport no problems. We didn't use airport transfer back. She runs the place on her own and has an open door policy although I can understand why some people would find her rude. She could...
