Sunrise Beach Bungalows
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Our family (4 adults)had a great time at Sunrise Beach Bungalows when we came up for a wedding. Caryn and Brian looked after us really well and were always approacable and helpful. The bungalows were great in our first week and the big house was awesome in our second. Excellent self contained units although some of the appliances were less than reliable - probably due to the salt and humidity. Fresh linens and a cleaning every second day. Beautiful setting, the sunrises were spectacular and the pool was blessing on really hot days when we didn't want to hit the beach. Family friendly - even includes loaner pets - Mouse, Sweetpea and Hogwarts! Meitake Maata Caryn and Brian

Our family, 2 adults and 2 children (aged 5 and 10), had an amazing holiday staying at Sunrise Beach Bungalows in Bungalow 8. With great pool access, balmy tropical gardens, clean / tidy bungalow and fabulous hosts, we couldn't have wished for a better place, or hosts for our family get away.

A huge thank you to Caryn and Brian for their hospitality, information and very warm welcome. This was a second visit to Rarotonga, where we had previously stayed in resort on the island. I would highly recommend the Sunrise Beach Bungalows for any family, or individual over the resort. You just can't beat the hospitality of Caryn or Brian, going the extra mile with all aspects / requests we had.

The Sunrise Beach Bungalows are good value of money. The bungalows are nice equipped with kitchen, private bathroom and toilete. If you stay here, you need a scooter to go to swimm and explore the island. The beach is not good for swimming, so you need to go to Muri beach.

We stayed for 11 nights at the Sunrise in an oceanfront bungalow in august. The first morning, we awoke to a great display from humpback whales out front. The bungalow we had was very pleasant, with a lovely view off our landing. The presentation was lovely and clean with everything we required for an enjoyable stay. Caryn and Brian were very welcoming and really went out of their way to please their guests.
We hope to return to the Sunrise again next year.

In my mind - Sunrise typifies the Cook Islands - with Brian & Caryn as your Hosts, the laid back nature of the Accom and it's situation just a short distance from the more busy Muri Beach provides a great relaxing environment. Add in the great "family" of Animals that surround you from "Mouse" the cat who insisted on staying the nite with us to the myriad of very friendly dogs, you can't but help relax...Bungalow 3 - right on the Beach would be my suggestion...

Thanks Again Brian & Caryn - we will be back...

We stayed at Sunrise with Caryn and Brian for 1 month in August 2012. I could not recommend this more highly Caryn was a wonderful host and made sure we had everything we needed, and went out of her way to make certain we had a wonderful time.
It was just like being away but part of a family.
The location is great just away from the hustle of muri but so close it was easy walking if you wanted to.
We are definetly going back next year.
