My partner and I hired this house for a week and we just loved it! We got married at a near by resort within that week so we had family and friends who came over to visit daily and it was such a great size house for entertaining 22 people, we had a BBQ one day and the others just sitting around enjoying the house and views. The house comes with two kayaks, snorkel gear and reef shoes and it has a washing machine which was super handy. This house is perfect for little family's or couples wanting a beautiful spot on the Muri lagoon. I can't rate this place enough we enjoyed every moment and we will defiantly be back to stay again in the future. Thank you for having such a great Island feel house for hire it was perfect!! :) I didn't want to leave!
We stayed here for a week and it was like a home away from home. Clean, well equipped and very comfortable, with plenty of space for our small family. We had a great time.
The location is beautiful on a very nice beach which is very safe for swimming and also has some good snorkelling spots around the small island right in front of the house. It's also only a 15 minute walk to the 'fruits of rarotonga' another great snorkelling spot off the beach.
The house is a 10 to 15 minute walk either along the road or the beach to a few cafés and restaurants and there is a small shop about 10mins walk away to buy a basic selection of food if you feel like cooking.
I hope we can visit Rarotonga again soon as we had such a lovely time there and we can definitely recommend the Laurie residence as a place to stay.
We had an amazing stay at the Cooks Beach House-"Laurie Residence", it is wonderfully situated in the muri beach area, being both private and secluded but also close enough to a number of amenities and great restaurants & bars.
The view from the property is picture perfect and the house itself is well set up with lots of great indoor and and outdoor areas to enjoy.
The use of the sea kayaks & snorkelling gear was fantastic in the lagoon.
We will hopefully be back for another visit soon!
