This is a small private home for rent at the southern end of Muri lagoon on Rarotonga. Rona Kaitangata is 50 yards from the lagoon in the south-eastern corner of the island near Muri and allows easy access to the beach which is just across the road.

This beautiful holiday house is situated in one of the least built-up parts of Rarotonga yet the round-the-island bus stops outside the door. Small shops are within walking distance and there are good restaurants and takeouts nearby in Ngatangiia and Muri for those times when you can't be bothered preparing food yourself!
From the interior dining area you have access through french doors to a spacious, shady verandah where you will probably spend most of your time. A small kitchen is to the right of the dining table. All interior floors are tiled. The bedroom has a walk-through closet to the bathroom. A high ceiling gives good air circulation. There is also an outside shower which allows swimmers to wash off sand from the lagoon across the road.
The lagoon is just across the road about 50 metres away. Fringed with coconut palms and ironbark trees (casuarinas) it is a wonderful spot from which to view the dawn come up. If you sit quietly and still for five minutes you will see the ghost crabs popping up and scuttling across the sand. The Rarotongan word for them is koiti.
The beach is nearly always deserted and you can enjoy swimming and snorkelling without getting run over by sailboard surfers. The lagoon is quite shallow until you get about 100 yards out. Then it deepens to about 10 feet at high water until it becomes shallow again as you reach the reef.
Rates until March 31 2019
