    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    Studio, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
    This is a quaint, not large, fully self contained studio unit that sleeps two.
    Only 30 seconds walk from the best beach on Rarotonga, over the road from the supermarket and on the main bus route.
    "Budget Accommodation" - but extremely good value at only $490/wk for up to 2 people.

    PLEASE NOTE-- The "Shack" has shared direct beach access with Absolute Beachfront Villa guests at the time. This has never been a problem.
