Thank you Jo and Rick for a wonderful stay in you holiday house. We were a group of 8 friends looking for a comfortable base in Rarotonga to enjoy the Te Maeva Nui festival, and to explore Rarotonga. Onu Bay Holiday House exceeded all our expectations.
The house is large, well appointed, and beautifully maintained. It is well located on the NW of the island, which gets less wind at the time we were visiting. There is a lovely beach suitable for swimming and snorkeling out the front.
The house has 5 bedrooms, with king splits, so bedding can be configured for families or a group of friends. There are plenty of living spaces, which are beautifully furnished, so people can easily get a bit of quiet time. The pool and tropical garden are lovely and so well maintained by Rick.
Jo made the booking process painless, which may not have been easy given our fluctuating numbers! Rick provided us with a very good house orientation when we arrived, and was a helpful and unobtrusive presence next door.
We'd thoroughly recommend Onu Bay Holiday House to any group looking for a stylish and tranquil base to explore the island.
Think of your perfect holiday home and times it by 10 and you're nearly there. This place is AWESOME. The thought and care put in to making this house a home are obvious. Our group had 6 adults and 3 very boisterous wee men aged 3-6.
The rooms are beautiful and all have air con. The two bathrooms are first class. There is everything you could ask for from good wine glasses to blow up pool toys for the boys. Nothing has been overlooked in making this place a totally relaxing and wonderful place to relax and kick back Raro styles. Being right on the beach, the kids had a choice of the swimming pool to play in or lying around on the beach swimming and feeding the fish. You can see and hear the whales from here and to great excitement of the boys, the planes!!!
Jo, you made the booking process so easy and Rick you were a great host. Thanks for the 'orientation chat' it made everything so easy going forward. Thanks also for showing us your amazing villas next door at Serenity! This will be our next 'couple' holiday for sure. Beautiful and again, so well thought out.
Thanks for sharing your amazing piece of paradise with us.
Wonderful location, as the sunsets are beautiful on this side of the island & the snorkelling on the beach, in front of the house is great.
The house fitted our needs perfectly, as there were 5 couples in 5 King Size, extremely comfortable, beds.
The house was extremely clean, with 2 lovely bathrooms.
Great being able to enjoy the Happy Hours & the great restaurant at Sunset Resort next door.
There is a lovely big fridge freezer & a spare outside.
There was even snorkelling gear, life jackets, 2 kayaks & 2 bikes available to use.
The day bed, lounge chairs & lovely big table & chairs all on the deck, make it easy to relax.
We would definitely choose this house again.
We have just returned from a fabulous stay at Onu Bay Holiday House. We were a group of 8 and it suited us all in every way. Plenty of room, very comfortable beds, an amazing pool and the beach on the doorstep. The outdoor areas were great and it was lovely to have our own space. The house had everything we could ask for and more. The use of kayaks and snorkelling gear was great too. We hired a car for our stay but the island bus stop is out the front. We loved being able to walk to the bakery, little corner shop and even island night at a nearby hotel. We loved the snorkelling just in front of the house too. We would all recommend this wonderful house for people wanting a home instead of a hotel. Thank you Jo and Rick.
we stayed in June 6 adults and 4 small children. What a wonderful holiday! What a beautiful house! It far exceeded our expectations, we could not have asked for more.
Everything was provided, from the small, to the big. the bedrooms were great air con in all,huge living area and kitchen, barbecue area out the back was great big enough to do all our cooking at once.
the best of course was the pool and the beach if we weren't in the pool we were in the lagoon kids loved it.
Rick the manager was friendly helpful and coconut guru.
Bookings with Jo was easy and we were kept well informed leading up to our trip
