Sparkling clean6 recent guests have said that this home was sparkling clean.
Great location100% of recent guests gave this home’s location a 5-star rating.

A small, spacious, stylish and practical self-catering guest-house, nestled into a gentle slope above family plantation lands. Built by artists to complement their main long-house 'Are Roa', this timber pole-house - 'Are Pou' - is an ideal space for a couple, 2 friends, or a solo traveller who might like to be self sufficient yet have 'family' to call on next door. We are 200m from Muri's main Rd, not far from the beach and all the hustle that Muri village has to offer.

Great to hear you had a great stay with us Brett & Alexa - but very sorry to hear you dint't sleep for the first three nights?! Definitely a good reminder to let guests know about the free range (WILD) chicken and roosters (that crow day and night) are ALL OVER Rarotonga - so yes personal earplugs are definitely a good thing to bring over - unfortunately, sometimes these run out at the hardware store here! In emergencies - when I need earplugs - like at concerts or when next to power tools - I often use toilet tissue - uncomfortable and not ideal - but plentiful x Thank you again for being SO EXTRA SUPER AMAZINGLY TIDY!! Best wishes and see you again sometime! Ani & Croc x

This little eco friendly cottage has a great location being close to all the action in Muri, public transport, car and scooter hire places, restaurants, convenience stores, the Muri night market and of course the beautiful lagoon. For us this is the best side of the island! Being…
