We rented Iro’s Beach House from Dec 23-28, 2019. Early arrival was easily arranged (our flight arrived at 6:22am). The transfer from the airport was slick! The location was fantastic and the house itself was PERFECT. If you are looking for a quiet, peaceful stay this is the place for you. Snorkeling right out the back door... do yourself a favor and book this house. Btw the shower was the nicest I have ever been in. Be sure to visit the fruit and vegetable stand right across the road!

We have just returned from a 7 day stay at this piece of Paradise. The house was perfect for us and our 2 adult sons as was the location. You couldn't ask for a place any closer to the beach, it made it so easy to swim on and off all day. The little outside shower was great for rinsing off before sitting on the deck. We had everything we needed but I would suggest adding some serving or salad bowls and maybe a few more towels. Titikaveka is a great location with excellent food/dining options 3 -5 kms either way. We used the local dairy for supplies and the roadside doughnut stall nearby was excellent as was Charlies and the Muri Night Markets. We will definitely stay here again and we loved every minute of it, rain or sunshine.

We've been coming to the Cooks for more than 20 years and this is easily one of the best places you can book. It's on the best beach in Raro is well away from the road, you'll hardly hear the roosters - plus we left you a blender to make fruit daiquiris with. It's not overly modern but if you come to the Cooks for a/c, cable and a flatscreen you've come to the wrong place. You will be visited daily by a local Brit and US couple who weirdly take ownership of the deckchairs out front. But sunsets like these deserve to be shared. Kia Orana.

Stayed at Iro's for 5 nights, I cannot recommend it highly enough, the location is beautiful and very private, swimming and snorkelling right at your door, the house itself is very well maintained with everything you need while staying in Raratonga, cannot rate Iro's highly enough if considering a trip to the Cook Islands this is the place to stay.

We have stayed in eight Titikaveka villas over the last decade and Iro's beach house surpassed all of them. This recent visit included 4 people (3 generations). We used shade cloth & shoe laces to a) fence off the sloping ramp and b) set up a shade cloth area about 3m x 3m as a sandpit extending from the front steps. This meant the toddler had free, independent, safe access to outside areas while we were able to relax. We gave him water from the outside shower - what more could a tiny tot wish for! In summary, with minor cheap modification makes this property perfect for a young family. Service was immediate & courteous, and warm and friendly I endorse the house description & the above reviews & recommend Iro's to future holidaymakers.

My wife and two son's, 24 and 19 years of age, stayed at Iro's beach house. We were greeted at the airport by Norma, Henry's sister, at 1am after a very long day. Norma presented us with a 'ei each and a friendly hello. She then drove us to Iro's slowly, along the way we learnt more about the Cook Islands from Norma. The house more than met expectations, very comfortable and plenty of room for the four of us. A large bowl of fresh fruit was prepared for us, what flavour, beautiful. Our boys had a spacious room to them selves as did my wife and I. Fan's on the ceiling made sleeping comfortable during the tropical nights. The veranda is large with the beach at the bottom of the stairs. Coral sand then pristine lagoon with fantastic snorkelling. Norma has a market stall at the end of the driveway out front of the house, 50 metres away, selling fresh fruit and clothing. We were fortunate to meet Henry and Marita, the owners of Iro's, and just like Norma they are very friendly people. We spent several hours talking, learning how to open coconuts and the history of there land. Next trip to the Cooks, we would again stay at Iro's, our home away from home.

We found Iro's Beach House fantastic for our family (2 adults, 8 & 3 year old girls) Amazing snorkelling straight off the beach with an abundance of fish to be seen, kayaking, swimming or just lazing on the beach. Perfect for enjoying a quiet drink or two. Great deck for bbqing, dining or just sitting on the deck taking in the view. The property itself is well maintained. Furniture comfy, the bed in the Master Room was absolute BLISS! Super soft and comfy. The washing machine was well used and worked well, even down to washing a wedding dress beautifully. Well equipped house with just about everything you would need from bottle opener, scissors and clamps to close up unused packets. Well situated house with Muri a quick drive away or to Wigmores which is less than a five minute drive in the opposite direction for groceries etc. A quick stock up at CITC and extra's from Wigmores we were set. A huge thanks to Jennie from "Experience Rarotonga" for recommending and booking Iro's for us. We couldn't have been happier. A real slice of paradise. We are hooked and would definitely love to rebook again in the near future.

Having a rather poor experience some years ago, with another holiday house, it was with some trepidation that I agreed with Jane to rent Iro's Beach House. Arriving at some ungodly hour , approx 1.30am, we were more than happy that we had chosen well. Clean, well equipped and right on the beach we couldn't wait to sunrise and to start exploring our surroundings. We went to sleep with the sound of the waves breaking on the reef some 200 metres away. Next morning a quick trip to pick up the scooter, pre booked by the agent Jenny, and off to the Saturday market. Great choice of vegetables and two magic bakery stalls saw us set up for the first few days. Wigmores supermarket, 3 or 4 mins away on the scooter had more than enough choice and prices were not too bad either. We took some bits and pieces for evening hors doevres to have with our gin and tonics and were surprised to see the same gourmet olives we bought at Countdown, not only stocked but cheaper. The Iro family have won us over with their hospitality and service and with the Grandparents, living opposite, having a fresh fruit and vegetable stall meant fresh Paw Paw for breakfast every day. The beach is fine for swimming , not at low tide, but just 50 metres either way from house had good swimming at all tides. Snorkeling was OK but we have been spoilt with Fiji and Tongan experiences. Great BBQ on the deck and plenty of coconut trees for us to sling our hammocks. We always take our own to ensure we have somewhere to lay back and read our books/kindles. The family were very taken with the hammock idea and we feel sure they will be adding some to the house kit. Titikaveka is about halfway around the Island from Avarua so you can get either clockwise or anti clockwise buses at the gate and the journey to town is the same distance. Great sunsets,peaceful surroundings [ the house is well back from the road] and beach front . What more can you ask for. It was great to see the local dogs playing silly buggers in the early morning before the day heated up and they all seemed to have big smiles on their faces. The holiday home next door had two young children in for some of the days we were there and they played and played with the dogs. Lots of chickens and ,of course some were cockrels, but what is a Pacific Island holiday without waking to the sound of early morning crowing! Would we reccommend Iro's as a place to stay? Would we ever!! We will definitely be going back again.
