A small 7-roomed resort, which caters for travellers who like indepedence and to be away from the hustle & bustle of larger resorts. The apartments are self-catering which means you can take care of your own dining needs, whether in the fully appointed kitchens or the guest barbeque. Towels are changed on request, and bed linen is changed every 7 days. The rooms are serviced on departure. The Coral Sands is ideal for small groups and if you wish to make a block booking, please contact us to arrange. The lagoon is only footsteps away where there is an abundance of colourful marine life, kayaks are available, along with reef shoes and snorkel equipment. The swimming pool is perfect to cool off as well. There are celing fans in all rooms, air con available (at an additional cost), there is access to WIFI, TV/DVD, security screens on windows, and there is a guest laundry on site. Come and enjoy the relaxed lifestyle of the Rarotongan people, no traffic jams or traffic lights here.

This is a lovely location on the west side with close access to the great snorkelling beaches of the south shore. You don't need a car but I would recommend to have one or a scooter to get around in the heat. Dean and Eve provide some very nice extra touches - mobile phone to

Hi there. We can provide airport transfers at $15 per person payable to the driver. If you want your room available to you at 1.00am on the 20th you will also need to book the night of the 19th. Thanks for your question.

Kia Orana, we would highly recommend that you have some form of transport while you are here in Rarotonga. Although the Island is only 32km around, activities, cafes, shops etc are all spread out. There is a public bus service (clockwise, and anti-clockwise) that run every hour, but you may find you spend half your holiday either on the bus or waiting for the bus! If you decide to hire rental vehicle, again, we highly recommend you do this in advance as vehicles can and do sell out on the Island, particularly in busy times. If you want some assistance with this, please email us. Meitaki Eve

"The three bedroom apartment suited our needs travelling with two children aged 7 and 9."
"Check out Beluga just down the road for breakfast, Wilson's for dinner on the beach, and KiteSUP for night SUP tours in Muri."
"There is one room round the back which is away from everyone else if you are with a group, try and get all the rooms round the pool."
"they are all good!"
"Large two storied units would be perfect for a group or large family, or for a wedding party."
US$103 - US$194 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
