An amazing location 2 minute walk to the beach which is part of a marine reserve so excellent snorkeling. We booked both bungalows and had a wonderful holiday with our family. Lorraine was there to meet us and gave us lots of information about places to go, bus timetables and good places for dinner. Could not recommend highly enough. Will... More

Aroa Kainga exceeded my expectations! I had the most wonderful holiday! I was traveling solo, and was looking for a good central location at a decent price. The bungalow was perfectly equipped with everything you could need. Very comfortable, cozy and well laid out. The place was VERY clean and tidy and the shower was excellent. The fresh fruit and...

Aroa Kainga was absolutely wonderful! We caught a very late flight in (2am) and Tricia was up to welcome us. We booked very late but Tricia managed to fit us in with 3 nights in the bungalow and 4 in the studio, and we were more than happy. Straight away I noticed how lovely and CLEAN the place was, I...

I would happily stay here again. Great location, close to a very nice beach - both for sitting on the sand, or snorkeling. The beach is a 5 minute walk from the property and I went swimming every day. This beach (bordering the Rarotongan Resort) is really one of the best snorkeling spots on the island, and also a marine... More

My partner and i greatly enjoyed our stay in the studio apartment at Aroa Kainga. It exceeded our expectations regarding the size ( spacious for a studio and had a large kitchen area) and how modern it is. Nice private property with a lovely wee deck area right outside the sliding door to sit in sun or shade. We had... More

This bungalow we found on the Internet and what a find it was! Tricia the host is so knowledgable on Rarotonga plus she has thought of everything in her bungalows so no need to worry that you will not have everything you need. We stayed for a week and the bed was fantastic, plenty of space in the unit to... More

Lovely little bungalow for a couple's retreat. The beach was phenomenal. We made the mistake of wasting a day in the murky shallows of muri lagoon as per the guide books recomendations when the lagoon on the doorstep of the bungalow is breathtaking. Trisha was a great host and the bungalow everything we needed. If u do stay, take trisha's... More

We stayed at Aroa Kainga in June 2012 and had a great time. The bungalows were very tidy with a modern feel and in a great location on the island. The property is set a couple of hundred metres back from the beach down a side street. At the end of the street is a really nice stretch of beach... More

We had the bungalow (2nd one in), the room was spacious, with a good kitchen lots of lovely perks like, bread, coffee, tea, oil, salt, heaps of towels, snorkling gear. A great passionfruit vine which we ate off every day and a lovely... More
