A private, self-contained studio fully build to feel like you're in a resort but have the entire space to yourself! The Love Shack sleeps up to 2x adults and is the perfect holiday home for couples celebrating their honeymoon, anniversaries or just a romantic get-away from your busy lives.

The space
Not your standard holiday home - this place suits the more adventurous traveller who enjoys unexpected places to stay. The studio is located on the hillside near the popular town of Muri Beach (10-15 min walk, 5 min by car/bike) and hiring a car or bike is recommended. There is 18m2 of indoor space and a whopping 130m2 of open space, multi-level decking surrounding the studio. This place is built out of to timber and has air-conditioning to keep you cool during the hot days and nights. A fan is available also.

The spacious studio has a compact yet fully equipped kitchen. To make the most of the small space - most of the appliances are hidden behind cabinetry. The kitchen has a standard 4x pit gas hob, an electric oven, a fridge/freezer, a microwave, a washing machine, a Breville espresso machine, cutlery, crockery and other small appliances including a blender to make your own smoothies!

The front of the Love Shack opens up onto a spacious, covered deck from where you can jump straight into your own private splash pool. The back of the shack opens up on even more deck space and a private, outdoor kitchen area for you to enjoy your BBQ's.

The studio has a seperate toilet building and an outdoor shower (note: private outdoor shower only, this property does not have a standard indoor bathroom!) and bath-tub - giving you the ability to shower and bathe under the skies and take in the tropical surroundings. On a clear night - there are 1000's of stars to gaze at! Towels and beach towels are included with your stay.

The property is set in a landscaped garden surrounding by palms and tropical foliage. As the Love Shack is set off the backroads, this is a great spot for those wanting a bit more peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of Muri Central.

Where you’ll be

Takitumu District, Cook Islands

Set off the backroads of Muri on the sunrise side of island, our Love Shack offers the perfect setting for exploring the island of Rarotonga. The shack itself sits halfway up a small hill on a shared bumpy, gravel driveway, nestled between tropical foliage and looking out onto the stunning ocean and Muri lagoon. This is a fantastic place for those after a more quiet holiday home away from the hustle and bustle of the main road. The Love Shack shares the property with another Studio Villa also rentable on AirBNB.

Down the hill, Muri Beach itself has great restaurants and bars as well as local dairy shops, car and bike rental places and of course access to the beautiful blue lagoon. There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy water sports in Muri including snorkelling, paddle boarding and kayaking on the lagoon. Wander down for a stroll of about 15 minutes or hop on your rental bike to take you there within 2 minutes.

Other activities and places of interest in Muri are the well-known Te Vara Nui cultural show and village tour, KiteSUP’s kite surfing, Te Manava Spa and Massages, Deli-licious Cafe for great coffee and food and explore Muri’s lagoon with Koka’s Lagoon Cruise’s. Other nearby beaches include Titikaveka, Vaaimanga and Arorangi located within a short drive of our villa and offer fantastic snorkelling opportunities.

The town of Avarua, the main hub on the island, is within an easy 20 minute reach either by car, bike or local bus services and is great for shopping, museum visits, art galleries and other attractions such as the Punanga Nui Farmer’s Market (every Saturday), the Rarotonga Golf Club and the well-known cross-island ‘Needle’ walk.

We're James & Felicia, live in Auckland - New Zealand and together we run a production company called The hood & Co. Together, we've set up 2x studio's for rent in Rarotonga that are both fully set up as a vacation home for guests - Tiare Views. One of the studio's is perfect for families of 4x with younger kids while the other is charmingly called The Love Shack and would be best suited for couples on honeymoon or on a romantic getaway. Likely being very biased here but it's the perfect place to stay for your next holiday to one of the pacific islands! While we are not there to host you - we have put together a document with the best places to eat and activities to do while you're staying at Tiare Views. Our property manager will be your best point of call and make sure your stay is the best it can be.
