This two-bedroomed furnished house is a semi-rural property just a short walk from the beach at Muri, in the south-east corner of Rarotonga. Although many visitors seek beachside accommodation, they sometimes don't realise that the beach is also very close to the traffic which runs along the main road encircling the island.

If you want the authentic experience of living on Rarotonga with peace and quiet and total relaxation then this is the place for you. Are Meika (Banana House) is situated in a quiet, sealed road ending in a cul-de-sac in the area of Aremango, Ngatangiia.

Capturing the cool, prevailing south-east trade wind the house is five minutes walk from the main road where round-the-island buses stop and a further five minutes to the nearest beach at Muri. Are Meika is set on a half-acre among banana trees. It has polished concrete floors and is of concrete brick construction (cool in the hot weather) and has extensive verandahs facing north and west to protect against the afternoon sun. It also has high ceilings which allow maximum air circulation

Hi Eddie,

Just settling in back home after a wonderful week in Rarotonga and we were delighted with the "Banana" house we rented. Location was perfect and nice and quiet off the main road and plenty of space. Lovely neighbours too and we so much enjoyed the holiday. When we left all of us saying: we have to come next year! We certainly recommend your place to others and just wondered would like us to contact you in future directly for bookings? We now have to linger on the nice memories and photo's until our next holidays! Many thanks and till next time hopefully!

Hi Eddie,

I am emailing to thank you for making our stay in Rarotonga so stress free. We loved staying at Are Meika, it suited our needs perfectly. There was nothing we needed that wasn't there, except a cake tin which I happily donated! Thank you for all the flippers too, yours fitted better than the ones I had brought. I loved the chickens and roosters that roamed around. It was so peaceful at Are Meika, yet a short stroll down to the lagoon and restaurants. Henry's transport was excellent too, even informing us of our flight delay. Loved it all, wish I was still there.

Thanks again, Caron and Arie

Hi Eddie

We stayed at Are Meika recently and would like to say how much we enjoyed our holiday. The house was just right for us and our family. So well situated. Thanks for the efficient handling of the booking, shuttle transport and key hand-over.

We will definitely come again to your lovely island.

Regards, Philippa

Hi Eddie,
Just a quick email to thank you for the great service, again. We recommend you without hesitation. We had an amazing 10 days at Are Meika, and will be back again for another visit to Rarotonga in the next few years. The hospitality of the island was wonderful and we thoroughly enjoyed our daughters wedding which was hosted by Moana Sands. Kindest Regards,
Mandy and Greg
