“ALL YOU NEED FOR A GREAT RARO HOLIDAY”

A stand alone very private, spacious and comfortable new cottage with a fully equiped kitchen plus snorkle gear, books etc - everything you neeed for a very enjoyable holiday. Dont be mislead by the fact it is inland as the beach is only 300 meters away - great for the sunsets and swimming. If you are thirsty the Shipwreck bar is only 200 metres to the north and welcomes drop in thirsty guests. Local village shops close by. Any questions - no problem - Linda lives next door. The weather for our trip was not always fine and we were very pleased to be staying in such a spacious comfortable cottage. By now the brochure should read a 2 bedroom cottage. Conclusion - we have no hesitation in recommending Harmony Cottage and Linda's hospitality for a very enjoyable Rarotongan holiday .

“Absolute hum-dinger of a cottage”

I came to the Cook Islands for a wedding and found this cottage on HomesforHire.com

It was a brilliant move, I had independence, comfort and great access to beaches and town alike.

The cottage was amazing, comfortable and has lovely décor. It was easy to cool and easy to stay warm at night. It was just off the main road, which was great and only a short walk down to lovely beaches.

I was able to buy groceries locally and with what I brought from NZ I ate really well and had all the equipment needed from a bbq through to Microwave and oven. Great Laundry and so I didn't have to go anywhere I didn't want too.

There was also towels and snorkelling gear available for free use.

The hosts were wonderful and easy to deal with.

Regards

Dave Burgess

My family and I loved the cottage! With everything you need at your finger tips. The cottage is in a great location. It gives you a nice relaxing feeling being amongst the surroundings of the gardens and hearing the ocean. We would definitely be staying there again when we visit the beautiful Rarotonga again.

We felt relaxed due to the semi rural location also due to an excellent standard of cleanliness .We found the unit to be spacious and airy. Everything was not far away to get to from the unit and there is a really good beach to snorkel in just down the lane across the road.
