Loved the place, right on the beach, our unit was just great and clean. Lovely host and very helpful, and went out their way to make us feel at home.Dairy shops, cafes, restaurants and kite surfing are within walking distance. See you next year, cant wait.

We are 7th time visitors to the Cook Islands and have rented privately owned properties prior, so we are not expecting 4 or 5 star accomodation but unfortunately this did not measure up to photos that are on the website. The location is superb and the view from the balcony is to die for but that is about where it... More

Thanks for your comments about declining standards of cleanliness during 2013. These have been addressed by Geoff and Ana who took over Tiana's Beach Villas from Geoff's parents in late 2013. The interiors and exteriors have since had a good clean and general maintenance of facilities. We haven't received any negative comments since and whilst Tiana's remains a budget property... More

Geat bechfront location, couldn't be better placed, price reasonable, but for everthing else. Kayaks, were looking forward to going kayaking as per the website, but alas no kyaks, when inquired advised to go hire some. Had to clean the shower on arrival, sheets stained, windows that didn't shut, blowing a gale curtains flying around like a flag. Needs a "makeover"... More

Thanks your feedback. I'm happy to say that Tiana's has been taken over by Geoff and Ana and the place is looking clean and tidy again and all linen has been replaced. We did have a problem with the kayaks for a few weeks when the local distributor ran out of kayak repair kits (the reality of island life!) and... More

The location of this property was fantastic - couldn't ask for better. But the place was very run down and definitely needed a decent clean! The pillows mouldy, the towels old, a broken toaster and a microwave that didn't spin around (resulting in our burnt scrambled eggs)! I was most disappointed that the website offered kayaks for guest use, but... More

An awesome little property, perfectly located in Muri beach. It is old and basic, but clean. The shower is great but bring a hair dryer. For the price, I don't think you could find better right on the beach. Would definitely return.

We stayed at Tianna's in November 2012. We found the hosts go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable, they'll pretty much help you with everything as long as you just ask! Beach front property with restaurants, vehicle rentals, activities, and small grocery store all within walking distance. Not to be mistaken with an all-inclusive, $400/ night resort,... More

We stayed at Tianas in June 2012. Its right on the beach in Muri, which is just about the best beach in Rarotonga. Its basic... but its clean, comfortable and GREAT value (NZ$120 or NZ$160 a night), and its very functional and its the BEST location! It felt like a batch or holiday home. There are 2 one bedroomed Villas... More
