Love this place, its spacious, clean and tidy, the host Vina very friendly and accommodating, her dog Charger was just the sweetest girl, i loved her and wished i could take her home. We had the bungalow number 1( closest to the beach ) which had an amazing view of the lagoon yet sheltered with the palms. The cleaner friendly and efficient and the friendly groundsman showed us how to de-husk and open the abundant coconuts for fresh juice ( which i made smoothies with.... yes there is a blender in the well stocked kitchen ) and fresh coconut flesh to munch on. The bungalows are very spacious and well equipped for self sufficiency.
The location is perfect with the main shops just a few minutes walk away including the Muri night markets which are operating Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sundays from 5pm to 8pm. Perfect for some amazing local meals and to die for cheesecakes etc. Buses run hourly just a minute walk away and only $8.00 return into town. Plenty of cafes nearby.
A washing machine is available for use. TV doesnt really work in Raro so advised to take some dvds or a hard drive with movies if you wish. I also took up to Raro a chilly bag full of steaks as there is a couple of bbq's available.
Thank you Vina for a great relaxed stay... will definately be returning
