Welcome to Paradise

Nirvana Cottage is set in a private garden just 100m from an idyllic white coral sand beach in the south of the beautiful island of Rarotonga. The Cook Islands, spread over thousands of kilometers of the Pacific Ocean are famous for their magical coral reef lagoons providing safe warm water for swimming and snorkeling year round.  Daytime temperatures here are usually between 25C and 30C with breezes from the Trade Winds for most of the year.

Nirvana Cottage is in a quiet secluded location on the southern side of the island and is surrounded by tropical fruit plantations but only a few minutes walk to the lagoon.

Providing an island escape, Nirvana Cottage is self contained and includes a well equipped kitchen with a stovetop, refrigerator and a microwave. There is a TV and a private bathroom. Linen and towels are provided.

Outside is a private veranda and courtyard where you can relax and read in the shade.

Nirvana Cottage is walking distance from the local supermarket and a 10 minute drive from the famous Muri lagoon with its bustling nightlife and restaurants and bars. Rarotonga Airport is a 30-minute drive. We can arrange your airport transfers, and while you are here, the hire of a car, scooter or bike (both pedal and electric) for an additional charge.

Nirvana Cottage is equipped with a double bed so is ideal for couples and solo travelers wanting privacy and tranquility.

Rated 9.2 in booking.com, you are assured of a warm welcome..

Brian, Malta

The location was perfect, just 5 minutes away from a beautiful beach. The accommodation was comfortable and had all the necessary to be self sufficient. The hosts were very nice and helpful.

Leanne, United Kingdom

Amazing! Everything was good. Kitchen was well equipped, bed very comfortable and everything was nice and clean upon arrival. I had messaged the host a few times before we arrived and she was always friendly and quick to respond. Cannot recommend this place enough!

Beth, United Kingdom

Self contained apartment was great, the hosts were awesome, very responsive to emails before we arrived and arranged transfers for us. We didn’t make full use of the kitchenette but it had everything you would need and more. Close to local beach but not to main areas such as the town or Muri. TV and hard drive with plenty of movies on for quiet nights. 

Feefee, United Kingdom

Cute bungalow, lovely part of the beach you can access pretty much 5 min walk from the property. Has a little kitchenette which was brilliant. Host was lovely. Very clean on arrival. Airport transfer can be arranged for you.
