Best holiday I had in Raro to date. Upstairs Villas perfect for 2 couples. The accommodation is beautiful. It is clean, modern but homely. Quality furnishings and fittings throughout. I had not one issue with management, in fact several times they went out of their way to make conversation or lend a hand. Housekeeping are very kind also. Muri Beach...

My wife and I just spent 6 nights at Te Vakaroa. We had a superb time. The room was well appointed. The room had a fully functional modern kitchen. We did not realize how useful the kitchen was until we went fishing and caught 2 yellow fin tunas. Location of Te Vakaroa was great. It took 15 mins or so...

This was our first trip to Rarotonga and definitely wont be our last. We couldn't have chosen better accommodation or a more perfect location right on Muri beach. Our downstairs villa was very spacious, beautifully furnished with a modern fully equipped kitchen and a very comfortable four poster king sized bed. Just a few paces from our patio was an...

Our family of 4 (2 grown children) had 2 weeks here over Xmas. The 4 villas (2 bedroom apartments upstairs, 1 bedroom ones downstairs) are right on Muri Beach which is a fabulous location where you see the waves breaking on the horizon but in between you & them is a beautiful, sheltered lagoon. The snorkelling is fabulous but it...

We were one of 2 couples that stayed in a 2 bedroom villa at Te Vakaroa in August and have to say Wow! The rooms were immaculate, the staff were fantastic and our location was perfect. The villa suited us perfectly and there was plenty of space for 4 adults and had everything we needed to enjoy a relaxing holiday....

This was our first stay in Rarotonga, so we wanted to go "up-market" to avoid disappointment. Te Vakoroa delivered!!!. From the friendly shuttle driver, to the owner, receptionist and room staff we could not have asked for more. Very relaxed and laid back, but efficient. The apartment was spacious, and well equipped. We enjoyed the ability to cook for ourselves,...

This was our first stay in the Cook Islands and we hit the jackpot! Te Vakaroa Villas has gorgeous views and the villas have everything we could need.
