Mango Cottage: near Muri with pool

Ngatangiia cottage

2 bedrooms / 1 bathroom / sleeps 4

“A perfect base to explore this wonderful island.” This unit has been recently converted as a holiday cottage. All fittings are new and the decoration is very tasteful. The nearby beach is not the best on the island but that is not a problem as the best beeches are only a few minutes away by car or bike. Rarotonga is a fantastic island and a car is essential to explore all it has to offer. We were spoilt for choice of beeches, all of which have safe lagoon bathing with coral gardens containing a fantastic selection of exotic fish, at wading depths. Even non swimmers will be able to enjoy this wonderful experience. Be sure to take a mask and snorkel. Mango Cottage is clean, well fitted out and perfectly located, with easy access to the main town and best beeches. We found it an ideal base for what proved to be the holiday of a lifetime.

“Fantastic location...great house...beautiful beach...fab snorkel” Ann's Beach House was ideal for our family of 5...although it could easily sleep another couple of people too. Really comfortable to relax in. Enough sofas and dining chairs for eight people. Beautifully clean!!...and loved the fact that all towels were provided - including beach towels! Great location just opposite Wigmores. Coco Latte cafe a few doors down had the best passionfruit smoothie ever!!

“Luxurious time out in the Cook Islands” Superbly appointed beachside cottage made us feel like we were on holidays but with the comforts of our own home. All the modern conveniences were on hand and the outlook and location were phenomenal. Loved snorkelling in the lagoon out the front and drinking a glass of wine on the deck overlooking the ocean late afternoon. Our batteries have certainly been recharged on the beautiful Cook Islands! Can't wait to go back!

“High class within paradise” Avaro house was one of the many highlights of our recent stay in Rarotonga. The booking process was easy and our family were blown away by the sheer awesomeness of the house upon their arrival. This is the second time that our family has stayed in this house and I believe that it will not be the last. It was close to town as well as the 24hr Super Browns dairy and takeaways. We will be back

“Great Location...” We stayed for 10 nights, arrived in the early morning to a clean cottage. We walked into town the next day and picked up a scooter for our stay, took about an hour, but on the bike about 7 minutes. Nice and close to the sea, pool was clean and outside area manicured. Tony came in to greet us on the second day to check everything was okay, and was a great source of information. We found the location to be excellent because it was close to town and only 10 minutes to Muri Beach... the best of both worlds. Might suggest if you are a light sleeper to bring some earplugs, as road is in close proximity to the cottage. Super Brown 24 HR was literally across the road if you need anything; petrol and food. We really enjoyed having our own space rather than staying at a resort, especially when the weather was not agreeable for outside activities, we had space and amenities to chill out in. We would stay there again.

“Home from home!” I stumbled onto this place when I was driving around the island and loved how it was on the main road but yet so private! It's located 2 mins fron the beach and walking distance to shops and the resorts! The house it self is fantastic feels like home as soon as u enter! Very spacious open plan living and an amazing deck to sit out enjoying the weather n views of the mountain! Also the best passion fruit tree with fruit the size of tennis balls amazingly in a Gin and tonic! Have stayed there 3 times and will do so next time!

“A lovely place to stay” We attended a wedding and 4 of us stayed here to be near the venue. This is the most luxuorious place we have ever stayed in. We enjoyed its size and views of both the sea and mountains. We saw a whale pasing through which was fantastic. There were coconut trees in the garden and we knocked some of these down and tried them. Tony was very helpful and easy to deal with. Had a lovely BBQ on the expansive deck.

2 bedrooms / 1 bathroom / sleeps 4

“A wonderful getaway place to stay” We stayed in the Nu house. It is very comfortable, clean and spacious place to stay. It had a gas cook top, an oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine, one double bed in the main bedroom and two singles in the second bedroom. A cane lounge suite and dining room table was in the open plan together with a CD player & TV. There was a gas barbque and 4 wooden chairs & table on the deck and loungers out on the grass. We spent a lot of our down time out on the large deck overlooking the beutiful view of the lagoon. The weather was very hot and humid. It was so good to get out of bed and jump in the lagoon for a swim before breakfast. This part of the lagoon has very little coral, so our swims were not interrupted by having to look out where we were stepping. The only thing I would fault is the house needs security screens on ranchsliders to allow a breeze through the house at night. (We were warned to be security concious on our arrival.) Otherwise it is a wonderful place to stay.

About Rarotonga

Surrounded by a ring of flame-colored coral that protects an enduring blue lagoon and white powdery beaches, Rarotonga is a tropical island paradise not far from New Zealand. And, even better, it doesn't have the insane prices of Bora Bora or Tahiti.

For the widest choices of accommodation available on Rarotonga, visit FlipKey.

About Rarotonga

Found in the South Pacific, just 4-hours flying time from New Zealand, Rarotonga is the largest of the Cook Islands.

A small island with big smiles, Rarotonga is just 32 kilometers in circumference and feels like a huge beach resort.

Dominated by towering volcanoes, the majority of the people live and work around the coast and in the main town of Avarua. Cook Islanders consider themselves as being a seafaring people descended from Polynesians who arrived from Tahiti 1,400 years ago.

Discovered by Captain Cook in 1773, it took a further 115 years before the 15 island chain became a British protectorate.

Rarotonga is now a popular vacation destination for New Zealanders looking for a tropical beach vacation. With the Cook Islands using the New Zealand dollar as their currency, vacationing on Rarotonga is much more affordable than other nearby destinations.

What to do

Rent a kayak or a canoe on Muri Beach for under 30 NZD for the day, and explore the tropical fish-packed lagoon by snorkeling around the coral reef on Rarotonga's best beach.

Visit Te Vara Nui Village to learn all about the history of the islanders and take in a dinner dance show that tells stories that have been passed down for generations.

Spend half a day out deep sea, fishing for marlin, sailfish, wahoo, barracuda and tuna. The conditions for catching migratory fish in the waters around Rarotonga are excellent!

Hike two hours through the rainforest to visit Papua Waterfall and swim in the natural pool. For the best experience, try to visit after a heavy rain.

Snorkel over the wreck of the New Zealand steamship Maitai SS. It struck a reef on Christmas Eve 1916 while it was stocked with Model T Fords, and they're still there, too!

Top Rarotonga travel tips

Rather than taking taxis or the island bus, rent a bicycle for your stay on Rarotonga and explore the island at your own pace.

While the resorts all serve excellent food, you can save tons of money eating like a local. Stick to small traditional eateries and you can eat well for 8 NZD. A great place to go for fresh fruit, fish, and seafood is the Punanga Nui Market on the waterfront next to Avarua.

Rarotonga is a Polynesian Island paradise with pristine beaches and clear water that offers more than just fancy resorts and over water bungalows. The people are friendly, the weather is great and Rarotonga rental properties on FlipKey can be afforded by families on a budget.

Home away from home.

Had an awesome two weeks at this tastefully equipped holiday home. Everything we needed was at our fingertips from the fully equipped kitchen to a good nights sleep on a very comfortable bed. The owners gave us clear instructions and information that was helpful in making our holiday enjoyable. Booking went smoothly and they supplied good helpful tips of the island activities. Excellent location, walking distance to car/scooter rental, shops, restuarants, resorts, or a short drive into town. The beach is a quick stroll down the drive for viewing of stunning sunsets or a enjoy a swim at Papas swimming hole. Breakfast spent on the deck watching the island go by Rarotongan time, highly recommended. We will definitely by coming back.see more

Absolute Beachfront Villa – beachfront bliss
Fantastic location

Spent 8 days at the absolute Beachfront Villa and it was fantastic. The location is superb being right on the Muri lagoon and right opposite Wigmores supermarket. The bus stopped right outside our gate and there is also a coffee shop and masseur next door. The villa was great with plenty of linen supplied, and all mod cons available. Each room had a fan in it and also fans in all the living areas, large kitchen and living area. We spent most of our time outside, outside furniture was plentiful, kayaks were available and we did use these.see more
