This place is tucked away on the opposite side of the Island to the big resorts. The bungalows are perfect little no-fuss rooms. Each one comes with a large bed, a reasonable sized kitchen and a good sized bathroom. The owner, Caryn, stays on site and is always available and willing to help. She was awesome! We stayed in a...

To breakfast on the veranda of a simple beach bungalow with nothing between the breaking ocean waves but palm trees, a few chickens and a friendly cat is one of my enduring and most treasured memories of Rarotonga. Caryn was a very attentive host, who could not do enough for us including providing a tour of the town, driving us... More

I had a excellent experience at the sunrise beach bungalows. Caryn, the owner is a down to earth person and the service is brilliant. My trip is an unforgettable experience and will treasure it lifelong. Loved the beach front houses and views. Can't wait to go there again... Soon hopefully

Rarotonga is not a polished destination, pieces of it becoming more so, but it's basic overall. In a way that's it's charm. A Sheraton hotel could not make it here, which lies abandoned, and no chain hotels exist of this island. Being basic, you get ants at times, sand, flies perhaps, wandering chickens and friendly dogs.

As a yoga teacher and someone that is constantly travelling I've been blown away with my stay at Sunrise. There is no place like it and Caren the owner goes above and beyond to ensure you are happy and having a great time. The grounds and rooms are immaculate. And what no other place can compete with is it's location.... More

Lovely, relaxing, has all the basics. Excellent rates on the rooms. Thanks Caryn for the awesome hospitality. Definitely recommend if you want value for money. The pool is so handy with 24 hour access.
