Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We loved our stay here. We came as a group of 14 to Rarotonga, and while the others opted with resorts nearby, we decided to stay here and do not regret it! While we missed out on things like free bikes, kayaks etc, we did not miss out on views, or whales! We wished we had binoculars - it's something you need to bring if you're coming during whale season. You can see them from the kitchen (and of course, the deck). There's a small convenience store across the road (1 min walk), and it's close to all the Muri Beach hot spots. Great snorkelling right outside the house, I swum with turtles! So cool! Highly recommend. There was no need for us to contact Eddie during our stay. It was a blissful 10 days unconnected to the outside world, digitally.

What a great beachfront property! Close enough to Muri beach and amenities for an easy stroll, but just far enough to be very peaceful. Literally out of the back ranch slider, off the deck and you're at the steps down to the sand. The backdrop is lagoon and the sound of waves breaking on the reef. Yes, it's not the poshest place you'll ever stay, but we thought great value - we've rented NZ baches that are far worse but cost considerably more. Spacious with a full lounge/dining area, well-stocked kitchen, washing machine etc, 2 decent bathrooms with one en-suite to the bedroom. You get a full house for 2 rather than being crammed into a standard resort apartment. Filtered water supply (safe drinking), chairs/recliners/table on the blissful covered deck overlooking the lagoon, even a few reef shoes, masks/snorkels etc if you forget to bring your own, though Muri is close enough to wander over and rent gear. All windows have secure mozzie nets, a huge plus. 3 other properties on the section but you really don't feel crowded and have lots of space. Great communication with Eddie, but we didn't need to contact him at all once we were there - Torea had everything. It's a 15 min walk West to Charlie's bar over the lagoon, and next door to Muri on the East - perfect positioning. A quiet resort is right next door if you want a bar etc. Easy walk down the road into Muri for shops, supplies, bars/restaurants/cafes/resorts etc. Loved it, would book again happily. Meitaki maata.

The view from the back patio is amazing. Nice walk to snorkling, bars and restaurants. House had everything we needed. Eddie got us some extra microwave bowls. Had a wonderful time. Loved the hermit crabs. Thank you so much. Would recommend to anyone

This was our third stay at Torea Beach House and it was as good as ever! Just out of central Muri, the location is perfect and everything we need is within walking distance. Property Manager Eddie is lovely and if there is an issue deals he with it promptly. We highly recommend Torea!

This is a wonderful place to stay! Very comfortable, well insect-screened, close to local shops, and a beautiful view. Snorkelling to see small coloured fish out the front of the property, and a 10 min walk along the beach to Fruits of Muri with bigger fish and a greater variety… Just loved my stay, and will be back!
