Awesome, absolute beachfront.
An amazing setting, clean bright and cheerful.
Just like the picture and everything we could want.
Restaurants close, snorkelling amazing, relaxing, quiet and wonderful views.
The bikes are to share with next door which could be a problem without a car!
One thing that does needs fixing asap is there was no FIRE ALARM!
Secluded from the rest of the world, looking out over a turquoise lagoon.
Semi detached but you wouldn't know it.
lots of goodies (bikes, boards, masks,towels) even beer and wine on arrival.
weather was wet but the water was beautiful and snorkelling amazing.
Would recommend a car to give you an opportunity to see the rest of the island at your own pace.
Fish and chips, proper meals, food galore all within a few minutes.
only 5hrs from Sydney, we hope to return often.
LOVED our stay! Such a perfect spot right on the beach, just like everyone says it's so good to have the SUP's, kayaks etc all there for you to use, which makes doing things like that much less of an effort. Amazing to have food basics, beers & wine to start with,so appreciated after arriving from our flight! Also the beach was a lot cleaner than others we visited, no seaweed on the sand making a fishy smell (though that may have been from the storm?) Villa is lovely & has everything you need
We loved every aspect of Beach Vibe. It was spacious, clean, modern and well appointed, private, and right on the beach. Most of the time we had the lagoon to ourselves, and there was some great snorkeling out front. We also really appreciated the breakfast starter pack, all the water equipment which was in good condition (we used the snorkels, reef shoes, kayaks, SUP), and the movies/shows on offer.
The local shop (Wigmore's) was within walking distance and had a good range of groceries. As per previous reviews, I still would recommend hiring a car in order to enjoy Rarotonga fully!
Overall we loved our stay at Beach Vibe and will definitely look at staying here again if we return to Rarotonga.
My husband and I chose Beach Vibe for an 8 night stay. We were leaving the children at home and taking some time out for us to explore Rarotonga and get some RnR. I did a lot of research before choosing Beach Vibe. The minute I saw the listing on Trip Adviser tho I was hooked. The attention to detail, the panaramic views, the absolute beachfront, air conditioning... it ticked ALL the boxes on our list and we were super excited. We were not disappointed. From the filtered water in the kitchen, the use of the bikes, the mosquitto bug power adapter things... the owners have thought of everything. And it shows. As everything was taken care of, we could get around to simply relaxing! There was even soy milk in the fridge for me (I don't eat dairy) and this attention to detail and effort to go the extra mile was appreciated. Thank you.
If you are wanting a resort experience, this is not the property for you. This is away from the Muri mega and while I can't speak for other months of the year, it was quiet and peaceful and you felt at times, like you had the entire lagoon to yourself. I loved it. We did go and explore Muri and the other resorts during our stay but we also loved coming back to our own private abode!
We made use of the bikes, snorkles and kayaks. The snorkelling in front of the property is superb. We had the best spot on the island in my opinion (and we walked and biked the island over). It's so handy in it's location to Wigmores (small supermarket) and we predominantly cooked all our own food. We would pop down almost daily for fresh produce and supplies. But in a kitchen as nice as this one, with such a stunning view, it was a pleasure to cook our own meals. If cooking isn't for you, there are two close-by restaurants - The Yellow Hibiscus and Vaima Restaurant with it's lovely outside dining. We ate out on the deck or most of our meals. This was one of my highlights. I also loved the bean bags and would sit on the sun deck and read/people watch (it's not a busy beach but you do occasionally see walkers coming past). The bed was comfortable, the walk in lounge was fantastic. We used the blender a lot (and the ice tray in the freezer!). For a home away from home, this has everything you want/need and MORE. We will be back! Thank you :) (Kelly and Rob are both lovely and it was great to meet you both!).
