So wonderful!!! This is a beautiful, gracious building and a fantastic holiday base on Rarotonga. Great swimming, snorkelling and paddling straight off the beach - literally 10 metres from the house. Manageable walk into Muri for the cafes and night markets, stunning walks home along the beach under the stars. Good bus service from the gate - we got scooters for a few days which worked out really well. The Beach Place is tucked around the corner from the main Muri beach so way less hub-bub; peaceful, quiet and private. Good cooking facilities, lovely lovely lovely place. Kind and helpful hosts, thank you so much, we will be back.

Despite what previous guests have said, this is basically backpacker standard accommodation with a similar price tag to far superior nearby beachfront properties. We were very disappointed.

The photos don't show just how beautiful this place really is. Quiet and scenic, a great balcony and nice bathroom, kitchen and deck with a private front yard sheltered from the wind and a nice beach out the front. You are 4 meters from the shoreline of the lagoon. There are kayaks and sun loungers, many books to read/exchange and movies for the wet days. It's a little bit windier here than other parts of the island but it's a short walk to the best snorkelling on the island and about a 10 minute walk to the small village of Muri where you will find everything you need groceries, shopping and restaurants!

We really enjoyed our stay at Aloma's place. Travis and Ngaoa are wonderful hosts who will personally pick you up and drop you off at the airport - such a lovely introduction to the island. The property is well afforded, very clean and in a great location. The bed is lovely and all you could want to crawl into after a hard day lying on the beach reading. 10-15 mins walk from the Muri markets, you're far enough away that you don't get too many passing by, but close enough that you can easily get around on foot. Just make sure you take a torch if you'll be walking the roads after dark, street lighting is non-existent. The property is located right on the water, and there are kyaks and snorkling equipment available, all in good condition. Being secluded with trees and plantings around you, there are bugs present. We did have a bunch of wasps move into one of the light fittings for an evening, which my bug-phobic girlfriend did not appreciate, but after calling Travis, not much more than 5 minutes later he arrived and took care of it for us. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would be happy to stay again should we visit Rarotonga again in the future.

Great location. Very close to snorkeling spots and restaurants while the house is very private. We had a great time. Thank you.

We stayed for a magical week at The Beach Place and wouldn't want to stay anywhere else the next time we are in Raro. The best part was probably the location. Private and separate from Muri activity but less than a 20 minute walk into Muri. Only 2 minutes away by car or scooter if you rent. Being outside by close to Muri also means you basically have the beach to yourself in front of the house. We loved the deck and kitchen...I could go on and on. This is the spot. Thanks to our hosts as well. Cheers.

We were met at airport by Travis, Aloma's father. Having food items in refrigerator was greatly appreciated as well as the tip of where to eat at the Miri night market...back right corner served very generous and tasty dinner! Seclusion with large plantings of shrubs was great, as it felt very private. Home was very clean with a great kitchen, and bath. Charming bed with adequate storage. We enjoyed the covered deck and ate all meals there. Short walk down beach to snorkeling area. Lots of gorgeous cobalt blue sea stars directly in front of rental. Drove to Aroa Beach for wonderful snorkeling.
