Reviewed 2 weeks ago for a stay in January 2018

First time in the Cook Islands and what a gloriously relaxing time we had. Susanna and Robert gave very clear instructions on how to find the property and we had no problems; though it is quite difficult to get lost in Rarotonga. The house overlooking the lagoon was absolutely what we were hoping it would be. It is spacious and...

Management response:

Thank you very much Kevin for this great review. It is informative of what we offer and we are so happy to hear that you received what you booked for. I particularly love that you both had this gloriously relaxing time that you deserve. Next time we show you the whales?

Just back from staying at Kaireva. Excellent place to base yourself, close to Muri beach and all it has to offer, but quiet enough for some serious R&R. Luxurious private accomodation. Snorkelling off the front steps, close to the Moorings Cafe (which is excellent). Thanks to Robert and Susanna for being great hosts.

Management response:

Thank you for this nice review. You also have been a great guest and left the house clean and tidy as. Thanks!

Avana Harbour is one of the most beautiful locations in the Cook Islands. A passage between the Ocean and the lagoon. With white sandy beach, the little islands in the front, just a minute of canoing, from where the mountain skyline is also stunning. Reef coloured fish, giant trevallies, turtles, whales, so many see life! Peaceful and quiet, but at only 3 minutes driving from the touristic Muri, restaurants, shops and water sports.

Easy, everything is close. Minutes walking to Muri area with lots of restaurants and services, 15 minutes to town, 20 minutes to the airport...
