Or take a walk and enjoy local restaurant offerings. Read a book on the verandah, or have cocktails down at the lagoon, which is just a short stroll down a quiet sealed accessway beside the house to the beach. Everything is close when you stay in Rarotonga. Walk, bike, bus, scooter or car—there are plenty of places to go and things to see and do. When you stay at Onu Bay you will find it: •is a quiet, relaxing environment •is spacious and roomy •is perfect for families and larger groups •means a self-service stay without interruptions •has an outdoor setting perfect for families •has easy access to the stunning soft white sand and safe waters to swim and snorkel •has a bakery right across the road •located adjacent to the Sunset Resort and Anchorage Restaurant. However, to reduce the amount of wear and tear the house experiences with multiple guests, and the extra losses/breakages that we have experienced in the past with extended families visiting, we do not allow our house to be used as a 'base' for others staying elsewhere, or friends and family to use and visit frequently. If you are looking for a fantastic holiday house in Rarotonga - come and stay at our place and experience it all for yourself! More
