We visited Rarotonga as part of a 25th anniversary vacation (also spent time on Aitutaki). We stayed in the "non-beachfront" villa, which still has a peek of the sea through a short private walkway to the beach. The villa has its own private garden with waterfall swimming pool and patio with dining table and loungers. Inside, the accommodation is clean, bright and spacious with two ensuite bedrooms, a living room and fully equipped kitchen with washing machine. The decor is modern and inviting, with travertine floors and nice bathrooms with large indoor/outdoor shower. You choose your breakfast from a range of options, and it is delivered to your villa. Muri beach is the archetypal tropical beach with blue sky, turquoise waters and white sand fringed with coconut palms. We enjoyed long walks on the beach, and were able to rent a small sailboat to zip about the lagoon (watch out for coral). Lots of nice restaurants nearby: We enjoyed Nautilus, Sails and a little further away, Vaima. Try the Ika Mata (tropical ceviche). Also recommended: the night market just down the road for great food at reasonable prices. Owners Andrew and Belinda were very helpful, finding us a good deal on a rental car, although we had to wait a day because cars were in short supply as someone had backed one into a coconut palm (note: don't park under a coconut tree).
