            Set on the back road in Nikao, overlooking the runway, this spacious two bedroom house is clean and tidy, has a large front yard, and claims to have the longest bar in Rarotonga. It can comfortably accommodate up to 5 guests, and has a veranda that stretches the length of the house, so it's perfect for entertaining. TuiTui House is a 10 minute drive from Avarua town centre, and a half an hour away from Muri Beach. Within 5 minutes' walk you'll arrive at the Rarotonga National Stadium, on the way you'll pass the famous Turamatuitui bakery, and petrol station, and a one minute walk in the opposite direction will lead you to Manea Foods; a small convenience store. The land is owned by a descendent of the Tinomana (Chief) of Arorangi, and is of the royal bloodline (Ariki) of Rarotonga. 'Live like a Local' at TuiTui house. With not a traffic light to be seen, getting around Rarotonga can be as easy as catching the island bus – which travels both clockwise and anticlockwise around the main road that circles the island. The island is synonymous for the number of people who ride around the island on scooters, although personally I prefer the safety of a vehicle. Nikao is a village settlement on Rarotonga in the Cook Islands. It is located on the north coast to the west of the capital Avarua. Nikao is the home of the Parliament of the Cook Islands, Tereora College (the oldest secondary school), Nikao's modern Cook Islands Christian Church, and the Rarotonga International Airport. Originally, Nikao consisted of three tapere or settlements (Rangiura, Turamatuitui and Pokoinu). Most of the people of Pokoinu lived near the sea, but after extensions were made to the airport, the people were moved inland towards the mountain. Today they call that new tapere, "Tepuka". The new village of Nikao has three new tapere (Panama, Atupa and Tepuka). Black Rock (Tuoro) is also located at Nikao beach, across the street from the Golf Club, where in oral tradition the spirits of the dead are believed to depart for Avaiki.

The NeighborhoodWe're not surrounded by other resorts or accommodation places but have local neighbours. We all get on well and respect each others space & privacy. We're very close to the 24 hour grocery & petrol store known as "The Super Brown Store" only a 2- 3 min walk from Ariana.

The beach front is directly opposite the Super Brown Store -but this is not a recommended swimming beach. We're 3.2km to the main town-Avarua, 6km to the well known" Muri Beach Lagoon"-only 1 of the many swimming beaches. Our location can provide our guests with a real view of "What it's like to live in Rarotonga". Getting AroundIt is only 32km around our island of Rarotonga. In this respect, nothing is very far. The main mode of transport for visitors is the 100cc motor scooters. There are also cars & bicycles for hire. We have the local buses and a main stop outside the Super Brown Store. The buses go clockwise & anti-clockwise on the half hour. At Ariana we have plenty of space for vehicle parking.

                    The SpaceCheck out is flexible and late check out is no problems at all, You are very close to the airport so it is a short trip and the space you have for you and your family is generous, whilst there are neighbors (including the chickens and pigs and the occasional friendly dog) - the space is open and private. The bonus to this property has bedrooms separated by the bathroom and the laundry is also separate. The porch is large, so you never get the feeling of being cramped or on top on one another. The beaches are far and wide on the island and there is so many you have to explore with our time on the island your cl- oses beach is not swimmable ( we are close to the port), the nearest pristine beach is 5 mins drive. Car/Scooter hire is recommended, even though the island has a bus, we can help/advise on where to book with airport pick up/drop off. Hire is very cheap on the island. $30 for car and $15 for scooter. Guest AccessYou are welcome to make yourself at home, including the seasonal fruits growing on the section including bananas, paw paw and mango for a tree to table breakfast experience. Bed linen and towels are included. Interaction with GuestsWe live on the island 6 months of the year, so we will be available, otherwise text, email or message is always welcome. My mother also lives on the island. We will also have numbers of local people you can call in Rarotonga. The NeighborhoodWe are close to Cafes, Supermarket, Bars and the Port and of course the world famous Saturday Markets - the first stop tourists make when visiting the Cooks. The Jet blast area for take off is something to experience (for the daredevils) When departing - You can check in at the airport and come back and wait at the house, instead of waiting at the airport for 3 hours after check in. Getting AroundThere is a bus every hour which goes clockwise around the island (45 mins to go around). There is also a push bike hire place 2 mins walk from the house. Car and bike hire is avail from the airport and bookings should be made in advance. Other Things to NoteWe are close to the airport, and there will be 2 flights arriving and leaving a day. Occasionally the planes will land over our house they come in quite low, most people love it - some people wont. On the plus side - the Jet Blast Area is 400m from the house - (as seen on Channel 10s Living Room - Dr Chris Brown - Things to do when in Raro for 24 hours) The Roosters can be awake with the sparrows and they do run wild, but Please remember we are a small self sufficient island, and roosters and Pigs will be unavoidable. There are pigs in the neighbor hood, they are only noisy at feeding time in the arvos - we like to take the kids with the scraps and give them a bite to eat. Its a lovely experience for the children. Especially for city children like ours
