The owner had promised Kayaks for our use but the Kayaks were old and water logged. They would have required two fairly strong men to get them in the Lagoon and back up the steep stairway to the lagoon. We were unable to use them The house also didn't look like the original…

Hi Lucia, I am sorry to hear that you didn't get to enjoy the kayaks. They often do get water in them and we empty them. Our last guests said they thoroughly enjoyed them, but perhaps we have to look at them again. Also we found the new stairs much easier to launch the kayaks than before or you can walk down to the sand about 50m and launch from there. Truly sorry you didn't get to enjoy this experience. We have something written in the compendium about the church bells, they can be a shock, I will be sure to tell guests via email as well, I can understand your concern. I hope you got to hear the beautiful singing that follows them and were able to enjoy the view.

My wife and I had a wonderful time at Avana Cottage and would definitely stay again. The proximity to the little town of Muri is perfect for a little shopping and dinner. The restaurant "Sails" for dinner was perfect. Order the "Island fries" which are so tasty. The local evenin…

Great to hear that you both had such a great time! Island Fries are definitely a favourite of mine as are the night markets in Muri. A really relaxing way to have a yummy and casual dinner under the trees. Great to hear you paddled over to the islands too, the view back to Raro is truly a picture of paradise. We hope to welcome you back again one day. Thank you, Lani

The perfect place to stay if you want a real life experience! We miss the roosters and the chickens! We visited the church across the road and the people couldn’t have been more welcoming. We went 4 times to the Mooring cafe which is the best on the island and we would know as we…

Hi Diane. So great to hear that you guys had a great time and really made the most of the island. We are so lucky to be near Moorings and great that you walked everywhere? Amazing. The cross island is amazing too. I am truly sorry for the delays in the emails, not sure what happens there. I lose days and are often out of range. Thank you again and we hope to welcome you back someday. Cheers, Lani

Great little house, no frills, but that’s not what you are there for. You can swim right off the back stairs or take the kayak down the lagoon for the day. Loved all our dog friends who would drop in and say hi daily. Easy walk or scooter into Muri for lots of great places to…

We immediately felt at home for our two week stay at Avana Lagoon Cottage, and knew we had made the right decision choosing an AirBnb for our stay in Raro. The Cottage is placed in the middle of three residential properties, and is peaceful and quiet. It's located a short drive/…

Hi Pania, thank you for the great feedback and so lovely to hear that you had a great time there. The location is great and such a close distance to everywhere, but still nice and private. Thanks again for staying with us and we hope to welcome you back sometime.
