We loved our stay at Marino. It's a short drive from the airport, Nikao video store almost across the road and a 24 hour Oasis grocery/petrol store 3 minutes walk. Quite a few restaurants and cafes are within a short drive and town is an 8 minute drive. The house itself was very clean, surprisingly spacious and well stocked with everything we needed (milk, coffee, tea, sugar, even wash powder). A beautiful platter of fresh fruit on arrival was awesome (we picked passionfruit daily from the vine around the house). Fully equipped kitchen and laundry with a big washing machine. The bedrooms were large, beds comfy and we loved having a bathroom each. Lots of bedding and towels available. The views from the huge covered verandah were stunning. The house is next door to a vacant section so privacy is assured. Downstairs there is parking for 3 cars.

Thanks Eddie - once again you were a super host from start to finish - see you next year

Hi Eddie

I just wanted to drop you a line to say how much my Mum and I enjoyed our stay at Marino. I have been to Raro 7 times now and stayed at various holiday homes. Your place would have to be our utmost favourite. It was close to all of the places we love and could see the whales most days from the balcony. The home was exceptionally clean and had everthing we needed. We will definitely be back and will definitely stay at Marino again.

Regards Tania & Diane

Hi Eddie,

Just wanted to let you know that Marino is awesome. Love the house, view, privacy, beach, landscaping, location, etc. Hate the roosters, but at least I know what I'll be having for dinner Tuesday and Wednesday. In reality, I have them at home so pretty used to it. Many thanks for the supply of coffee, milk and juice as well. Greatly appreciated.

Thanks again for all your help. Have a great week, I'm sure I will.

Cheers, John

We are now back home, safe and sound. Our stay at Marino and Rarotonga was great - just what we needed with plenty of R and R. ...You will remember me asking you about the whales and no sightings of them. I had almost given up hope of ever seeing any on our last evening when there they were just out in front of Marino. There was quite a pod of them, maybe six or seven and they put on quite a show, air blowing, tail raising and also thumping their tales on the water over and over. That really made our stay. We stopped watching when it got dark. The next morning low and behold the whales gave one last show before heading off - or maybe they were some others. I have no idea about their nocturnal habits and whether they stop to sleep at night? All in all a wonderful stay.

Cheers Jenny

The process of hair bundles wholesale treatment is as intricate as it sounds. It is not very technical and when it was first explained to me at the salon I found it a little hard to believe. So you may go and take a nap at the cost of staying oblivious to the chemistry involved. In real brazilian hair bundles a stylist uses active keratin solution which is similar to the natural protein produced by the body to keep in brazilian human hair bundles. This solution is applied to the hair cuticles using a 450-degree hot iron. This formula then brings moisture, hydrates the hairs and also adds a sleek veneer. The system relaxes the brazilian hair weave uk into a natural straight state the results I have seen are unlike other product I have tried best of all human hair extensions straightening treatment has had absolutely no side effects. It lasts for about three months and your human hair weave bundles stays straight no matter the conditions.
