We recommend The Aito Apartment highly. The accommodation was everything we were looking for: Spacious, Spotless Clean, Great Location, Front & Back outdoor patio space, well appointed kitchen, close to beach, quiet. To top it off the hosts are the most friendly, wonderful people you'll meet. Overall, the price was an exceptional value. The accommodation would be suitable for any type of traveler: Families, friends, Couples, Solo/Business. This was our honeymoon, any while it was not a resort setting, after staying at Aito, we could not imagine staying anywhere else on Raro.

Jean-Marc and Mere were great hosts, from the moment we arrived until Jean-Marc dropped us off at the airport to catch a 2 am flight, nothing was a bother.
The apartment was just great, set up with bread, milk, coffee etc on arrival, it was exceptionally clean and tidy and easily lived in.
My son and I enjoyed the Muri location, the apartment is about 500 metres from central Muri and about 2 minutes by scooter.
Thanks again to Jean-Marc and Mere, they were fantastic hosts.
Cheers Pete and Adam

We arrived at Aito Apartments an exhausted and bedraggled family of four after travelling for 8 months non-stop on a round-the-world ticket. Jean-Marc and Mere welcomed us with a completely spotless apartment, which had food in the fridge, was brilliantly equipped, and even has it's own washing machine! So you can wash clothes while you are there and I know that will be a huge bonus for many people staying there- especially with kids.

There is a fabulous terrace front and back which is covered so even when it rains you can relax outside. It is also just a very short walk to the most beautiful Muri Beach, literally across the road. And this is a real advantage because the trade winds can be strong and chilly, if you are on the beachfront it can be very blowy, but just slightly back in Aito Apartments and you just get a gentle breeze and all the hot sunshine. Glorious.

Jean-Marc and Mere also have a stall at the night market in Muri which sells delicious food, and which kept us well nourished for our entire stay there. They are a wonderfully kind and hospitable family and offer a fabulous home while you are in Raro at a very reasonable price.

Jean-Marc and Mere are incredibly generous with their time, and I am certain that the limited number of reviews on this website is purely because no one wants word of this place getting out! They have a visitors book full of accolades from a huge number of guests, and most guests return year after year after year; and they want to keep this secret to themselves so they can get a booking!

Jean-Marc and Mere have a wonderful family, and deserve all the accolades they get for this wonderful apartment and wonderful hospitality. It is by far the best place we have stayed in on our entire travels. Our friends recommended it and it surpassed our high expectations after the fantastic things we had heard about it. We stayed a month and would have stayed longer if we had been able! Thank you Jean-Marc and Mere, the kids and Pete and I miss you!

We came to Rarotonga in search of peace and rest after 5-months solid travelling and we found it all here with Mere and Jean-Marc. They made our stay here so easy and relaxed that it felt more like staying with good friends. By the time you leave you will fully understand the meaning of Cook Island generosity and hospitality. The apartments are very well fitted out, spacious, immaculate, lovely big walk-in shower, terrace front and back, comfortable bed with soft linen. It all worked. The beach is a short hop across the road and good snorkelling (one of the best spots on the island) a mere 5-minute walk. Muri is 10-minutes walk away and it is better to be a bit away from it as it is quieter. We were very sorry to leave and felt truly rested and very spoilt - they are both very good cooks. Thank you so much.

Room Tip: Both are equally good

Fantastic apartment to stay in while in Rarotonga. The place has been set up for you when you arrive and you can relax instantly. It is clean, spacious and your hosts Jean Marc and Mere have made sure you fit right at home by providing you with breakfast in the fridge.

The bathroom and bedroom was luxurious and the living room has comfortable furniture for you to lay around. We are very glad we chose this place and can see why every other review is a 5 star. A big thank you to Jean Marc and his wife for having us as their guests for dinner the Sunday Night Market! We were not very impressed with the food in Rarotonga after arriving from Aitutaki BUT once we ate their food...WOW! That was one of the best fish curry and rice we have had. :)

Go and stay here at Aito Apartments when you are here in Rarotonga, you won't regret it.
