TeRito Sunset on Lagoon,Titikaveka OR Arcadia Cottage, Muri

Hi there

My husband and I are planning our first overseas trip away since we had kids 6 years ago! Hallelujah!!!!

We have narrowed down accommodation to TeRito Sunset on the Lagoon (Titikaveka) and Arcadia Beach Cottage (Muri), and wondered if anyone who is familiar with these properties could tell us which would be the best taking into account our preferences as follows:

Here's what we're hoping to find in an accommodation (5 or 7 nights in January - yep slightly wetter and the cyclone season, but a friend of mine who lives there assures me its her favourite month):

- Beachfront property with good view of the lagoon

- Nice beach (no rocks) and good swimming right outside property

- Private

- Up to $180/night

- Self-contained

Apparently TeRito Sunset is right next door to Royale Takitumu Villas. I can't find much info on it apart from the listing on the New Zealand Holiday Homes website (and I think the map on there showing its location is wrong).

Keeping in mind we would like a nice Muri (southern end)/Tikioki/Titikaveka location, are there any other properties you could suggest (up to $180/night).

Many thanks in advance :)
