“Stunning views, beach, house and host”
Reviewed 19 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We have just spent a glorious 10 days at Anchor's Sand - it's a special location - great beach for swimming, snorkelling and kayaking. It's a good spot to see the whales cruising past as well. It is also close to a good range of cafes, restaurants and resorts. The house is well set up with everything you need to cook your own meals. What sets this place apart was the kindness and hospitality shown by Mark, and Peter - they went out of their way to make sure our holiday was relaxed and special. Thank you.

“Awesome accommodation, fantastic spot to stay”
Reviewed 2 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Loved every minute of our stay at Anchor's Sand, Beautiful house , very comfortable and spacious. The view from the deck is stunning and fantastic snorkeling a few foot steps from the deck! Thanks for making us feel so welcome and going the extra mile to make sure our stay was perfect. Highly recommend this spot and the brand new house right next door. Thank you again.

“Perfect island holiday!”
Reviewed 19 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Our family of 6 (2 adults, 2 teenagers and twins aged 11 years) stayed in July 2016 in the NZ school holidays. Anchor's Sand was perfect for us. It is right on the beach, has a large deck with large living spaces and four bedrooms. The kitchen had everything you could wish for & the house was very clean and stylish. The snorkelling straight off our beach has to be the best on the island! The deck is also very protected from the wind.
The location of the house is really good - just down from Muri Beach (a ten minute walk along the beach) but none of the Muri Beach wind. It is a short drive from Avarua so very easy access to the airport and supermarkets.
We loved Anchor's Sand and would love to stay again!

“Raro at it's BEST”
Reviewed 26 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

This was ideally suited for our family requirements, so spacious, well equipped to make the holiday that much better and of course absolute water front. Mark has the place very well presented and extremely helpful. Being right on the water front it was so easy to slip in and out of the lagoon 4-5 times a day. A very relaxing holiday.

“Perfect for families”
Reviewed 8 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

person found this review helpful

We were two families with young children travelling together. The house was perfect!
Location - fantastic the best beach on the island and as close to the water as you can get. Perfect snorkeling (Captain Tama and Koka tours) moor their boats right opposite the house!). There was also plenty of sandy coral free patches for swimming. The kids enjoyed multiple swims everyday then racing back to the house to warm up in the amazing outdoor shower.
You could spend all day on the deck just watching the waves crash on the reef, while the kids happily played on the sand collecting coconuts and splashing in the rock pools.
The house is large, clean and modern, the big kitchen and fantastic BBQ outside were well used. As was the extensive library of movies to watch. When we travelling with a baby and having a cot and high chair was great. The blender was used everyday for pina coladas! There is a large water cooler with filtered water also that is easy to refill.
Kayaks are provided and made for great adventures paddling around to the motu at Muri.
It is only a 15 minute walk to Muri and the Pacific resort (you can even walk along the beach). Have lunch at LBV then some beach side cocktails. And a definte was the night markets for dinner in Muri. Two minutes walk to Rumours waterfall spa for an amazing hydro massage. Also only 5 minutes walk to the amazing tropical gardens.
Wifi is provided and you can buy cards at the telecom shop in Muri.
The house was serviced every few days but everything you needed had been thought of.
