House clean & tidy. Jessie very helpful, efficient and prompt at replying to email queries.
My whanau of 6 really enjoyed this whare for our stay in Rarotonga! Location is great!! Close to Avarua and the airport, with a great beach to swim at very close. Kids enjoyed the pool at all hours! Lots of space and furniture to be comfortable for us all. The house is cool with the fans provided and netting on all windows , so could have the windows open. Awesome to have complimentary necessities eg bug spray, fly spray, washing powder, dishwashing liquid ect. When we make it back to Rarotonga we will definitely be booking here for our accommodation again
Response from Owner
Kia Orana Kayla, thank you for staying with us, nice to have you family enjoy themselves in the pool besides exploring the island fun things to do. yo know where we are so look forward to spotting you again someday on our island. meitaki maata and kia manuia.
Jessie was great answering many questions prior to arriving as I had not been to Raro before. Appreciated the milk, fruit and drinking water provided when we arrived as well as extras such as sunblock, insect repellent and when we had an issue with lots of millipedes coming in under the doors when it rained at night Sid left us strong repellent spray that worked a trick. If only there was an anti-rooster spray, you will need ear plugs if you stay here due to the feral roosters that roam about day and night and crow frequently at all hours, this is common in Raro though. The house itself is spacious, clean with full size fridge/freezer, modern clean BBQ and the deck was wonderful, we could enjoy being outside without worrying about burning in the sun after a day out and about. Recommend getting a car although it is a 15-20min walk to the township. Booked with Akura fishing charters and had a blast, friendly lovely people and we got Wahoo, Mahi mahi and Skip-jack tuna to take away and eat which was beautiful. Louvered windows allow breeze to flow and the fans kept us cool when hot, Jessie mentioned there are electricity surges which can blow bulbs so we were not keen to leave the fans going at night as did not see any smoke alarms in the house. Shower has great pressure, washing machine provided although this had an issue, bleeping and re-setting for the last 2 days we stayed, informed Jessie who is waiting on a new machine to arrive. Thanks for the stay, beautiful Island, we will be back.
Response from Owner
Kia orana Kieran and Marcus, thanks for staying with us it is always great to play host to kiwis from down South .. I'm really going to try and find a remedy for those Roosters they are truly a nuisance for all.. poor buggers confused with so much light around now they don't know when it isn't dawn! Definitely feel the same about the millipedes, it must be a seasonal thing as others experiencing the worst of it at the mo.. Nice cool weather and lovely so enjoying it while we have it.. take care and rug up well. Hope to see you again soon perhaps at our beach unit.. I'll send you pics soonest it is ready... hers comes a "Room with a View"! :) Take care kia manuia.
