Mount View Lodges
Reviewed June 24, 2013

My Mrs. and I stayed with Shona for a week in the wonderful island of Rarotonga in the end of october.
The place is very standard by first impression, but the exotic garden and the massive hospitality makes the stay memorable.. Its not like being in a hotel or even a B&B.. Its like staying in a heaven of hospitality..
We stayed in a huge bungalow and there was room for a family or at least two couples. The bungalow had everything we needed and more to.. Wonderful terrace to enyoy breakfast on..
Short trip to Muri Beach and the Avura.
Good recommendations from Shona on what to do.

My partner stayed for over 5 weeks at this place and I stayed for just under 2 weeks . We chose it because of the very friendly and interesting description posted on the website for mount view. It more than met our expectations. The owner Shona went out of her way to make us welcome. The garden is very beautiful and while Shona is not a fan of some small pigs who disrupt her garden this did add to the appeal for me along with the wonderful company of the two colourful 4 legged characters, Michael John Scooby, and Cyclone. The beach across the road is quite corally and not good for swimming but apparently a good whale watching spot. The rooms were serviced every few days and our room ( number 3 ) was a good size and very comfortable and well maintained. There is no fan or air conditioning, no TV and no stove but the facilities were all we needed and the host was willing to negotiate for the longer stay so excellent value. We would highly reccomend this to those who dont mind driving to the beach and dont mind a garden rather than a sea view. There are 6 units ranging from single to twin and then 1 family unit. BBQ on site is shared.
About 4-5 kms from Avarua

Room Tip: Rooms 3 and 4 being right at the back of the property offer more privacy
