“Awesome again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2013

We travelled to Raro again for our second visit in 2 years In April of 2013. This time we had 2 little kids. It was just as perfect as it was the first time in 2011. The bungalow was even a great size for 2 adults and 2 little kids. They moved a single bed in for our little guy and we had a travel bed for our little girl. The beach is truly amazing there and all the extras that they provide are so great. The Kayaks, hammock, outdoor shower, patio set, BBQ and drying racks make things so easy and fun. We cooked most meals in the bungalow and everything was great. David and Sale were absolutely awesome in helping us out and in cleaning and maintaining the property. We really enjoy this place so much and the value of being on the beach with kids is incredible. The cost for us to travel all the way from Western Canada is great and places like Hawaii and the Caribbean are much closer, but we truly enjoy this place so much we will be back again for sure. Thanks Annabelle and Helen and thanks so much David and Sale!!!

Room Tip: Pick Bella Beach Bungalow 2, its furthest over and has nothing beside it except a large park area.

Bella Beach #2 was just wonderful. We spent 7 days relaxing...sheltered from the southeast wind.
Beautiful beach at your doorstep, great swimming, kayaking and plenty of snorkeling spots close by. Also some lovely restaurants close by.

Exactly as we expected. Bungalow was clean and tidy and has everything required including a coffee plunger and blender for making fresh fruit smoothies. These bungalows are on one of the nicest beaches on the island - beautiful white sand and very little coral. The local dogs of Rarotonga come up the beach sometimes but are very friendly and harmless and add to the character of the place. Would definitely return to Bella Beach.

This is our third trip to Rarotonga, and having previously stayed at the Rarotongan Beach Resort, we were looking for something cheaper and more private. After searching through numerous reviews we decided to go with Bella Beach Bungalows. There were four of us (2 couples) so we booked 2 bungalows for a week in early August 2013.

Great communication when booking, picked us up from airport on arrival and dropped us off for departure. Friendly and helpful staff was an added bonus.

There are 4 units (numbered 2,1,3,4 if looking at them with your back to the ocean) (number 1 has no roof over the deck,but has a big umbrella) I can only speak for units 3 and 4 internally as they were the 2 we booked.They have gas cook-tops, microwave, Clothes horse for drying things, fridge freezer, hair dryer, toilet shower, screened windows/doors,roof fan,toaster and tv (which has 1 channel,not that we watched tv haha) There was an outdoor bbq shared between 2 units, hammocks,kayaks,loungers and deck furniture. Also on the edge of the deck was an outside freshwater shower and tap, great for washing off the saltwater before going inside.

Units were clean and very comfy. You may hear the odd rooster calling out as well as dogs barking now and then but thats the only bad thing we can find to say about Bella Beach. The location is great, just 25 steps to the waters edge from the deck, private with good snorkeling even at low tide. We would stay here again without hesitation.

Mana motorcycles for hire are just 50 metres down the road if you want to get a scooter.

Room Tip: unit 1 doesn't have a roof over the deck, but has a big umbrella. 1 bbq unit per 2 bungalows. M...

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2013

Stayed across the road from the bungalows in Bella Beach house - a 3 bedroom self contained house for 9 nights and had a fabulous relaxing stay. The house was exactly as described, great location, the staff were all friendly and helpful. The beach is really lovely and safe with awesome snorkelling. Sadly our weather wasn't the best so we were pleased to have a spacious house rather than a hotel room on the day when we were house bound.Being able to take food into the country can also make staying in a house rather than a resort much more enjoyable. We were worried that being so close to the road it might be a bit noisy but we were not disturbed by the traffic at all. The only downside was having no wifi available at the house but I understand that this is an island problem rather than the fault of Bella Beach

This is our 2nd visit to Bella Beach. last time was 9 years ago, and it is as great as last time. Friendly hosts, Helen, Annabelle and our driver Pepe made us feel warmly welcomed.
The best beach, and you have it almost alone.
We would love to come back.
