We have just returned from a fantastic holiday in the Cook Islands. Avana was a brilliant place to stay. It suited us perfectly. Our 2 teenage boys were kept busy with the kayaks and snorkelling. It was brilliant having the island to kayak to and there was a beautiful swimming spot there. Tony was fantastic and we enjoyed Elis'skills with the coconuts. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone. Hope we can return sometime soon.

Very good quality accommodation right on the waters edge and with views to die for.
great staff and location and unbelievable prices.
2 or 3 bedooms and studio apartments (ours was a studio)
The swimming and fishing/kayakingf/snoekleling is great and I suppose the price reflects the fact that the beach is a bit rocky - but the private guests jetty is a feature.

We made lots of new friends
Thus really is a well managed and fun place.

We ended up having the whole complex to ourselves for one week in January last year (08) - the 2nd week there were more people. There were 4 of us in total (2 couples in a 3 bedroom condo) and we had a blast.

Tony was very helpful as was Margaret when we locked ourselves out of the condo! ha

Also we left our mobile behind, flew back to NZ and Tony was kind enough to arrange for a family member there to fly home with it.

Thanks to all the Staff at Avana for making our trip worthwhile. We'll see you in October for our wedding ; )

A great place; Awesome Location. Who needs a beach front location, YOU DO!
Nine nights in a one bedroom apartment for the three of us. Gorgeous pool; Airconditioning, & erverything you could want.. . Lovely and clean. Fridge freezer for the NZ brought goodies; Insect screened and lovely balcony.
The staff were excellent; , Tony was great, Margaret the housekeeper , lovely lady and she is a real treasure and Ilai the gardener, they are a great team. Ilai was awesome, very friendly and polite and showed the kids how to skin a coconut and gave them some tips for fishing off the jetty.
Balcony was a great place for the sunrise and early morning coffee, and on more than one occasion we were lucky enough to see hump back whales just outside the breakers. Watched the whole show: blow, surface, roll over to see the white belly, flipper in the air and then watch the glorious tail disappear into the water. Picture purrfect.

After staying at Avana Waterfront Apartments for the 2nd time, we felt we just had to write another review.
The staff are extremely helpful, going out of their way to help and inform us of what and where we should go and do. Their info was always bang on as well.
The weather was a bit windy for our 1st few days, but we just went to the other side of Raro for those days, where there was no wind.
The "sometimes" Tuesday night BBQ was fantastic. (Best BBQ fish we have ever had anywhere!)
A must do experience is the "Drums of our Forefathers" island night at Highland Paradise.
The apartment we had has just been refurbished and was absolutely spotless. Also, the supplies in the fridge were a big plus after arriving on the "redeye express".
We definitly give this location a huge "Thumbs Up". Extremely good value for your money as well.
Check their website and compare.

We (Mum, Dad and 20 year old daughter) stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment. It has two levels with the bedrooms upstairs and lounge/kitchen downstairs. There is an upstairs balcony and a deck downstairs, equipped with outdoor furniture. It's right on the beach and the view is just amazing. It is quiet and peaceful and we couldn't have found better accommodation. Such a nice touch too, that on arrival there is bread, milk, butter and jam in the fridge and coffee and tea and a fruit bowl on the bench, so you don't have to rush out straight away to buy essentials. Avana Condos certainly was a big contributor to our overall fantastic Rarotonga experience.
