loved this place and will recommend to all. We were travelling with our 1yo son and arrived late at night to a warm smile and beautiful holiday home complete with portacot, car seat and high chair all waiting for us. The place was spacious and super clean and I can't speak highly enough of it :)

Once you arrive and settle in, it's easy to see why this place consistently rates so highly. I'm so happy we made the choice to stay here for our two week holiday. It's located close to the city, which was convenient in helping us organise our wedding. Our airport transfer was arranged for us by Susan prior to leaving, we arrived to a warm friendly welcome from Rangi who was waiting to greet us, my first thought was, wow, this place is even better than the pictures. Susan and Rangi are wonderful hosts, very professional, they offer the perfect balance of attention and privacy, we quickly felt relaxed, at home and well looked after.

The villa is a short stroll to the beach perfect for lazy afternoon swims in the lagoon. We hired a car which was very reasonable and convenient, enabling us to easily visit other beaches, resorts, tourist attractions and food markets around the island. We enjoyed finding fresh local produce bringing it back to the villa to cook on the BBQ, and eating out on the spacious deck. The villa has a gorgeous garden, we were encouraged to sample the plentiful fruit, what a treat eating fresh passionfruit from the vine.

Our favorite place on the island for happy hour was the Nautilus resort and the best beach for snorkelling was opposite the Fruits of Rarotonga, where the brightly coloured tropical fish would come right up and nibble bread from your hands, a magical experience. There's so much more, but half the fun is in discovering places for yourself. We found staying at Villa Rarotonga provided the perfect home base, enabling us to create the wedding, holiday, honeymoon that we'd dreamed of.

“Superb spot”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We were looking for a place just to chill out and relax... We found it. This neat little villa is just a 2 minute walk to the beach and also has really great restaurants in the locality. Back off the main road with little trafiic noise. Strongly suggest you hire a car (or at least a bike) while you are here regardless of where you stay.
This villa has fruit trees in the section. Pawpaw and passionfruit were on stream when we stayed. Nothing better than picking fresh fruit for breakfast.
Each bedroom has its own bathroom and the two bedrooms a separated by the lounge making for easy living. Big decks front and back and small decks off the bedrooms means you can find a spot that suits either in the sun or in the shade.
Be prepared for the roosters.... But that is a reality of anywhere in Rarotonga... There is no escaping them.
Really recommend this as a neat little get away in a fantastic spot in the pacific..
