Gorgeous view, beautifully spacious and comfortable rooms, they've thought of everything in the kitchen. Even with the easterly wind you could find a sheltered spot on the deck or by the pool.
Not the best place for snorkelling on the island, but an early swim in the sandy part of the lagoon out front was the best start to the day.

The only negative was that we stayed at Sea Change for our first nights in the Cook Islands and everything after didn't compare! It is beautiful, quiet and very scenic with excellent amenities. We stayed in villa #3- the best villa - with sea views on two sides of the main living area and just a few steps down to the beach. The views were beautiful. The kitchen is fairly well equipped with a nice welcome/breakfast basket. Their is a small grocery store nearby (an easy bike ride) Very nice bedding and linens and pillows (I'm very fussy!)- a very comfortable sleep. The villa was spotless. It's very quiet and nicely isolated from all of the hoi polloi. But close enough if you want to go to the night market, go to a cafe or go kitesurfing you can get to the town in 5-10 minutes. There is limited public transportation from the villas (the circular island bus) but it is easier to get a rental car- which Beverly, the lovely owner, can arrange at a bargain. We did however, take advantage of their bikes to tootle around the backroads and see a bit more of the Rarotonga life. It was a lovely, relaxing stay and we would definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: We stayed in bungalow #3 and the views and privacy were wonderful. We were only 3 but could have sle...

Looking to get away? This is the place for you. Away from the fuss of everything, but still easy to get around. My husband and I travelled the island by either the bicycles available on site to great snorkelling at the marine preserve, or took the bus that goes either way every 30 minutes. If you're planning to travel around the Island to sightsee, or to dinners, purchase a 10-ride bus ticket that you can use between 2 people. More economic than single ride fares. Just get into the island time attitude! Housekeeping was fabulous and Stephanie was ever so helpful for any little thing.

My partner (male) and I went to Rarotonga the end of August and stayed this beautiful villa for 6 days. I know Rarotonga has got a strong Christianity and I was a bit worried when booking this villa but everyone was so friendly, especially Steph, and I started not to worry too much about our states. When we stayed there, Steph was helping us a lot even though we were quite tired and did nothing. I guess we had a connection because of Aussie. Anyway, I was so happy to stay there and promise her to come back as soon as we could and staying st the same room if possible.

The villas were beautiful, we had our own pool and had the beach right across the road. They always went above and beyond to take care of our needs. Had all the comforts of home. And they were all extremely friendly people always stopping for a chat which was lovely

Kia Orana Tracy!
Meitaki maata (thank you very much) for taking the time to write a review of your stay at Sea Change! We're so pleased you loved your Lagoon View Villa which as you said was just a few dozen steps to the beach but also allowed you the luxury of your own private pool to enjoy at the villa! We pride ourselves on the "little extras" that ensure a wonderful stay for our guests and thank you again for your review.

Whether you're looking for a romantic escape or a family break you'll experience the perfect holiday in a setting that simply is breathtaking.

The six beachfront villas all enjoy stunning lagoon and outer reef views whilst the lagoon view and executive lagoon view villas are set amongst lush tropical gardens surrounded by breathtaking lagoon and reef views and majestic mountains.

Floors throughout are Italian porcelain, and all artwork is local and has been hand painted and commissioned exclusively for our villas. Each villa has its own completely private swimming pool. The decks on the lagoon side reach within a metre or so of the high tide mark, while the gardens and vegetation add to the wonderful tropical atmosphere of the executive lagoon view villas.
