Bedrooms are spacious, each with top quality super king beds (can be split to extra long single beds), ceiling fans, insect screens, plenty of drawers and wardrobe space. Third bedroom as an optional extra with its own bathroom - attached to the house with its own secure entrance. Main bathroom features a huge tiled step-down shower, easily big enough for two! New auto washing-machine, iron and board (if you must iron!) This is the owners' own holiday house, set up for maximum comfort for our own holidays there from NZ. Outside there's plenty of outdoor furniture for dining and lounging on the generous covered verandahs, plus the all-day-sun private sun deck adjacent to pool. Very efficient, easy to use gas BBQ provided. The house sits in its own private large garden - big flat lawn for outdoor fun and games, ringed with tropical fruit trees, vines and flowering shrubs. The location is brilliant - only two houses back from the beautiful white sand beach down the driveway - great snorkelling! Here you're handy to everything - within 5 or 10 mins walk are several good restaurants and bars, many on the beach, plus local shops, dive hire, rental cars... ten minutes by car or bus to the airport and town of Avarua. So many things to do and discover in beautiful Rarotonga - make it your next dream holiday and find out why those of us who keep going back call it Paradise!More

About the neighbourhood
In the village of Inave within Arorangi, you're spoilt for choice when it comes to things to do - stroll in either direction from the house either on the road or beach to discover beach bars, restaurants, great coffee... gorgeous white sand beach edging the lagoon is a great early morning exercise spot - lazing and gazing anytime - snorkelling - be adventurous and do the Beach Bar Crawl... walk along the sand from Shipwreck Bar 3 k south-west to Manuia Beach Bar 2 doors from home with two more beach bar/restaurants in between! Or head inland to the back road where lush vegetation entrances, absorb some local colour strolling past orchards, plantations and prolific vegetable gardens. Hire bicycles and ride around the island ... head off to Hashhouse Harriers Mondays at 5pm for a friendly me...
Getting around
A car will allow you to explore the interior and back roads (more safely than a motor scooter - but, your choice!). The bus goes around the island and stops practically outside our door - but only travels the main ring road in either direction - clockwise, or anti-clockwise. E-bikes are for hire, also cycles. A car may be available from us as part of your package - do enquire.
