This bungalow was a lovely place to stay in Rarotonga. It was very peaceful. The bungalow was very well equipped with everything you would need...including reef shoes! The beach was less than a 5 min walk away with good snorkeling.

We stayed in the front bungalow for 9 days, was a lovely relaxing place to come back to after our adventures. Our host Tricia was lovely! Fresh fruit, toast, cereal, tea, coffee and fresh milk was waiting for us in our bungalow as we flew in in the middle of the night, was awesome to wake up and have breakfast.... More

This was a lovely place to stay in Rarotonga. We spent 5 nights here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Aroa Kainga Bungalows were clean and tidy and provided everything that we needed. The host Tricia was happy to share her insights into life on the island and gave some helpful ideas on what to see and do. It is... More

This is a very quiet and secluded place to stay. There are no negatives only positive things to say. The bungalow is 300mtrs from the beach. Tricia is the perfect host as she just lets you get on with your holiday but is there for any advise. The welcome booklet explains everything about the bungalow. It is a perfect place... More

We stayed here about a month ago. It was great, being an experienced traveller to Rarotonga, it is the perfect place for travellers who want their own space all in a comfortable bungalow. Highly recommended, it had everything that we needed. Lovely host too! Definitely would stay there again!

Perfectly located in the low density region of Aroa Beach, with easy access to Avarua, Muri, restaurants and swimming/snorkeling. The bungalow provided spotlessly clean,well equipped accommodation for a couple (although a double pull-out was available, more than 2 people would be impractical), 2 mins walk to good snorkeling beach. Tricia, our hostess, could not have been more accommodating and welcoming,... More

Love this place and for location close to restaurants, the best snorkelling in Rarotonga and of course the fully self contained bungalows with Trisha as your host you cannot go past this place. Thanks for another gorgeous holiday in paradise and thanks for introducing me in to your yoga group - I loved it!

We loved our stay with Tricia, who makes you feel so welcome, and loved the spacious, private bungalows. Fully self contained units with verandah and BBQ. We loved the location, close enough to the beach, yet off the main road so very quiet. Only a 2 minute walk to some of the best snorkelling on Rarotonga. At the end of... More

Our third visit back and on walking it it just feels like home. Was great getting the breakfast parcel on arrival. Accomodation spotless and very comfortable, especially the loungers on the deck where many a nap was had. Would always recommend this accomodation as the beach is only 200 metres down a straight road, the local shop so very close,... More

We found the bungalows through Tripadvisor and they turned out to be just what we were looking for. They gave the freedom to have our own space and cook when we wanted or easily hire a scooter or catch a bus from the end of the road when we wanted to explore. They were impeccably clean and well kitted out,... More
