                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1997

                  About the owner: I am a Cook Island Maori born and raised in Rarotonga, and married to Pae from New Zealand. We have four daughters, Tiana, Hine, Reihana and Terena. We have lived and worked overseas for the last 24 years (my husband works for the United Nations). We are currently based in New York. We purchased our Muri sections in 1997. The beachside section had two existing houses on it and the back section had one house near the road frontage. We actually purchased the back lot first and decided to purchase the front lot (towards beach) because we didn't want anyone to turn one of very few residential piece of land in the heart of Muri into a resort and ruin our view from our main house! We built our main house on the vacant lot in 1999 and named it 'Are Hine' (House of Hine) after our second daughter Hine who has since passed on. All four houses on the property are named after our girls. Terena's Cottage near roadside, Are Hine (main house with red roof) Tiana's Studio and Reihana on Muri Beach. My family and I travel home every summer for our vacation and spend most of our time cleaning and maintaining all four properties. Our girls love going home to Rarotonga and spending time at the beach. Tiana and Reihana are both studying at Auckland Uni in NZ and the youngest Terena is in her last year of High School here in the States. Pae and I plan to one day return home to Rarotonga (when he retires from the UN) and settle into managing our private accommodation. We are very fortunate to be able to live on one of the most beautiful places on earth - the Cook Islands, Heaven on Earth! Ka Kite, Emm & Pae and daughters (in photo) from left, Terena, Emm, Reihana and Tiana.

                  Why the Owner Chose Muri:
                  Absolute beachfront living, amazing white sandy beach in popular Muri Lagoon, absolute privacy, gorgeous views of the Motu's (Islet of Ta'akoka).

                  The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
                  Reihana is unique as it is one of very few beach residential homes left in the heart of Muri on the beach on a half acre property of land with absolute privacy. Click on 'Location' and under Traveler Map and Insider Guide, click on Satellite to see all four houses from Ara Tapu (road front) to beach. Are Hine is the large house with the red roof, Terena's Cottage on roadside, Tiana's Studio in front of Are Hine and Reihana on Muri Beach.
