After an overnight flight we arrived in Rarotonga at 7.00 in the morning to temperatures already in the low 20s. We spent our first three nights staying in a lovely apartment in the east of the island at Muri Beach.
What were on the whole a relaxing few days spent snorkelling and browsing around the main town of Avarua were rudely …
... beach. The beach was beautiful, white sands and crystal clear water with heaps of colourful fish swimming around. We went for a swim and the water was stunning. We finally got into our room and had a shower before going up to Anna and Josh's villa for some lunch. The jet lag was starting to hit us by now so we went for a short walk, followed by a short nap. I set my alarm so we wouldn't ...

TV one station on the Island without a massive Sky dish. Has
rubbish Aussie news and soaps, but each night they have local news. The big
news while we were there was the road works taking place in downtown Avarua. A

How has this condo rated in the past?
We stayed at four separate places whilst in the Cook Islands and Aito punched way above its weight when it came to value for money.
The appartment was spacious, clean, comfortable and well thought out but above all that the hospitality of the owners was incredible.
