The Space

One bedroom self contained studio flat which comes with a separate bathroom, small kitchen, and laundry. The kitchen has a gas stove, fridge/freezer, toaster, jug, cutlery, utensils, table and chairs and more.

A 3 minute walk from the beach which is located across the road, the flat is accessible to most things on the island, and close to an internet cafe, local deli, restaurants, plus a number of shops as well as rental car and bike hire places. Its also 5 minutes from some of the best attractions on the island, and the bus stop is right outside!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Central, simple, no frills accommodation.
    If your not after anything fancy- this small studio is bang on. Highly recommended for backpackers/budget travellers who are seeking more privacy than what a hostel can offer.

  • I stayed nine weeks in Sian's Bungalow and had a really good time. The bungalow and furniture is of basic standard but very clean and totally fine as you spend most of the time outside anyway. It's located in Muri beach which is the best area on the island in my opinion. Walking distance to the beach is only a couple of minutes. A really nice café is only 30 meter away where I spent my mornings. In the bungalow you have a really good wifi connection which is quite rare on the Island. (Like everywhere else on the island internet is not free and you have to buy a voucher.)
    Sian was really friendly and helped me in the beginning to settle on the Island.
    I will definitely come back to lovely Rarotonga and would like to stay in Sian's Bungalow again if available.

  • Sian's Place is perfectly located near the nicest beach, Muri Beach on Rarotonga. Just 200 m to the beach with bakery, cafe, car and scooter rental even closer. Lot's of restaurant if you dont want to make your own dinner in the kitchen of your own studio at Sian. Clean and nice, Sian even provided us with snorkling stuff and extra towels for the beach.

  • Seans Appartement liegt nur wenige Schritte vom schönsten Strand Rarotongas. Besonders hat uns die private Terasse gefallen. Es ist Alles wie beschrieben und wir haben die Zeit dort sehr genossen.

  • If you're after "no frills" accommodation that's close to the action around Muri, then this place rocks. It's within walking distance of coffee shops, like about 50m away, restaurants, cafes and rental agencies for cars and scooters. And the beaches of Muri lagoon are also about 250m away. The place itself is simple in furnishings and functionality. You enter into a small living room that has a kitchen and gas stove, fridge and plenty of storage space. The Queen bed is comfortable with a large sliding door to let the cool breezes in. A big plus is fly screens on all of the windows to keep the mozzies out and the breezes flowing through the place. If you're like me, we don't spend our days in a hotel or motel room, it's just a place to shower and sleep at night while you enjoy the location and the people of the region you've traveled to. Sian's place ticks all of the boxes in that regard, but if you're looking for a four or five star location, save yourself the disappointment and look elsewhere. This place is for the budget-minded and those with a sense of adventure.

  • The apartment is in a very convenient location- right next to a great cafe and in central Muri Beach area. The place was clean and had everything you could need. A very affordable option in Raro, I'd definitely recommend this place if you are on a budget. The owner was also very helpful and responsive to any questions I had before my arrival.

  • This was a very cosy and clean studio with many homely touches that were much appreciated-eg a laundry on-site and an iron.
    Although it is on "air bread and breakfast" there was no breakfast supplied. We should have checked first, but no matter as there are fantastic venues within walking distance. Indeed,everything at Muri Beach is handy. Not exactly a 'hideaway" though, as adjacent to the coastal road, but still quiet. Veena at the office across the road was extemely helpful- "thank-you".RECOMMENDED.

  • Unit is in a great location. Close to the beach, shops and rental shops. Muri beach is definitely the best location on the island. The unit was clean and has everything you need. Host communication was great. Thanks Sian!!

  • Fabulous unit! It is neat and tidy and a moments stroll to the beautiful lagoon. There is an amazing cafe a few doors down called LBV and is close to several car/bike rental places and other activity outlets and eateries. The owner was very lovely to deal with and even organized airport transfers. The accommodation was the perfect place to rest your head at the end of a hot day on the island. I highly recommend this affordable unit!

  • We have just had a very comfortable stay here and we were gutted to leave the studio and the beautiful island of Rarotonga. The studio is in a fantastic location in Muri - providing us with two scrumptious cafés, an ATM, scooter rentals and a cultural island night show venue within a few minutes walking distance at the same time as maintaining privacy. The studio itself has everything you need for your visit to Rarotonga, it's clean, modern and very comfortable to stay in with a brilliant kitchenette and clothes washing facilities. Both the studio and Muri were wonderful and I hope to return!

I'm sociable, friendly, and easy going. I love to travel, and on the weekends like to relax with maybe a nice glass of wine, good food and great company. Asia is my favorite destination and Thai food would be my first choice for a meal. Originally from NZ I'm currently living in the Cook Islands.
