Experience Rarotonga

Maunga Retreat now with POOL – South Coast (ONLINE BOOKING AVAILABLE)

Maunga Retreat (now with POOL) is private, peaceful, secluded and a skip to a wonderful South Coast beach

What a bonus, this great little property now has a POOL!

Maunga Retreat looks out to tropical bush clad mountains but it’s only a short stroll, 150m to one of the most beautiful beaches in Rarotonga.

This modern spacious two bedroom home has contemporary furniture throughout and everything you need for that relaxing holiday of your dreams. The bedrooms have king-size beds which can be split. An extra child can be accommodated if needed. Indoor entertainment includes a large flat screen TV and DVD for those more stay at home days. Great indoor/outdoor living and a spacious private backyard with lounging furniture to enjoy that backyard and mountain views!

Some may appreciate the air-con in the living area in the hotter more humid summer months. The house is mostly screened for your comfort. There is WiFi access too! Credit needs to be purchased.

TINA’S HOUSE + MAUNGA RETREAT = 5 BEDROOMS – EXCELLENT GROUP VALUE Combine these two properties (side-by-side) together for groups – 5 bedrooms, accommodates 11 comfortably. Plenty of space. Available year round!

For bigger groups check out their other 3 properties in the same location, Kayne’s House, Rosian’s House and the new Tina’s Beach House

From the main road, Turn left out of your driveway and you’re only 350m to the Fruits of Rarotonga & Chantal’s Concierge, a small café for smoothies, ice creams, muffins, homemade jams and pickles and across the road to a renowned swimming and snorkelling spot.  The South Coast is known for generally deeper water as is Aroa on the South West coast.

Turn right out of your driveway and it’s 30m to Charlie’s on the opposite side of the road – cafe & kayak hire.   Another 350m further on is Maire Nui Gardens where there is a café open daily for brunches and lunched.  More dining options with Moana Sands Restaurant & The Little Polynesian Resort offering an idyllic setting.  Local fruit and produce stalls are dotted along the way.

From the house it is 2kms to Vaimaanga where you will find Wigmore’s Super Store.  Open 7-days, this mini-supermarket has most things including liquor (not on a Sunday though), fruit and veges, freshly-made local food and plenty of it on Sundays plus a small selection of organic foods and your usual grocery selection. There is a BSP and ANZ ATM machine, Coco Latte Café open Sunday-Friday, Vaima Restaurant for on-the-beach dining and the Yellow Hibiscus for Friday night Happy Hour and entertainment.  It is approximately 3km from Vaimaanga to the South West corner, The Rarotongan and more of the best snorkeling.

Children welcome.

  1. We had the most amazing first holiday in Rarotonga! Heaven on earth! Mauna Retreat was perfect. The house is super clean, well appointed and in a wonderful quiet street, close to Charlie’s, Little Polynesian and the best beaches! We will definitely be back Thank you Jennie for helping make it all happen xxx

  2. We have just arrived home after spending 4 wonderful weeks at Maunga. Everything about this accommodation is first class. As soon as you arrive you feel like you are on holiday. Modern kitchen, bathroom and comfortable beds make for a relaxing holiday. Everything is provided, with plenty of towels, linen etc. The new outdoor setting is wonderful. A great place to enjoy the beautiful mountain views and unwind. Thankyou Jenni for making our holiday memorable. We will definitely be back.

  3. Very well appointed, spacious, private, clean, modern home, great outdoor living with bbq. Comfortable beds with good quality linen, insect screens on all the windows, opens well to the air. Two minute walk to a good beach for swimming, Charlies Cafe four minutes walk, great smoothies and food. About midway between Wigmores supermarket and the bright lights of Muri Beach. A great place to stay and we even got used to the roosters who have confused ideas about the timing of the dawn chorus. Highly recommended. Thank you Tina, we can’t wait to come back. Just loved it. Adrien.
