The residence is a beautiful house in Rarotonga and by far the best accommodation on the island. My family and I stayed for 2 weeks last year and I can't wait to return. I looked around a fair bit before booking the Residence and honestly nothing in Rarotonga will compare to this gorgeous place! The location is brilliant, you are close enough to everything Rarotonga has to offer and only a short distance to the best snorkelling spot on the island. There are also plenty of restaurants and local shops nearby. What also made our experience fantastic was Bill our host, nothing was too much trouble for him and he gave us fantastic advice on things to do and see. We had a long flight from the UK and Bill had everything in hand, arranged our airport transfers and came to meet us even though we arrived late in the evening. We were greeted with lovely flowers and cold drinks, his hospitality was second to none and better than most 5 star resorts I have visited. The house has all modern facilities and is spotlessly clean, beautiful decor, a lovely pool and outdoor area, great kitchen etc. Bill will make you feel welcome, relaxed and at home. We travelled 2 x adults, 2 x children (aged 10, 12) plenty of space for us all and kids loved the house and island - it was the most perfect two weeks. We have kept in touch with Bill, he is such a great guy and made our trip a wonderful & memorable experience, easily contactable if you needed anything but also gave you plenty of space to get on and enjoy your holiday.
If you want luxury accommodation and a thoughtful host, the residence is for you!
