Great check-in experience100% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.

Close to town, shops, services and the Saturday market. The local bus runs past our driveway every half hour. Nightlife is a 5 minute drive or a leisurely 15 - 20 minute walk away, and it is just 5 minutes by car to the airport.

You’ll love Emily's because of its atmosphere and location. We offer a unique opportunity to experience island life while staying in a character Rarotongan home.

Great location. A short walk to the grocery store. You can also catch the island bus just outside the property. Elizabeth was the most helpful hostess. A great experience. If we are able to return to Rarotonga, we will stay again at Emily’s at Panama.

This place is close to the airport but it’s not an issue with regards to plane noise. The bus goes round the island regularly so easy access to everything. Supermarket very close, as are bike rentals, cafes and various stores. Elizabeth is a fantastic host!
