Te Vakaroa Villas is gold star accommodation without screaming kids ideal for people wanting a peaceful rest. All self contained and 100 metres to supermarkets made it perfect for our recent fishing trip to the island.

This is our fifth visit back to these villas. You may of stayed elsewhere in Rarotonga but nothing beats Te Vakaroa Villas with its location, serenity and ambience. When you put your feet up the magic of the place compels you to relax and enjoy. As usual, the grounds are immaculately maintained, your rooms are serviced with the same meticulous... More

Muri beach is the best area, Te Vacaroa is first class accomodation just a few metres from the lagoon. The two bedroom apts have 2 steep sets of stairs, the singles bedrooms ones are not that private. Staff very helpful. Only real negative was the wifi which Nick says he knows about and is promising to sort out. It may... More

We had the most wonderful stay here at the Villas. Our Villa was beautiful and the staff were amazing and friendly. We felt right at home and were sad to leave. Big thank you to Poko, Jai, Annette and Helen for making our stay so special.

I've stayed twice at Te Vakaroa this year - both times travelling with wife and friends, with the second trip being inspired by just how good the first one was! Both times the meet and greet at the airport occured without a hitch. Check-in was seamless and welcoming. The villas and shared (pool) area are stunning. Rooms are well appointed... More

Fabulous location right on Muri Lagoon. The villa we had was on the ground floor, one bedroom and extremely spacious. All fixtures and fittings are of the highest quality and the outdoor area (under cover) was superb. As there are only six villas on the property, three up and three down it almost feels as if you have the place... More

My partner and I stayed in the 2 bedroom villas for 5 nights and it was absolute heaven. The location of the villas in proximity to Muri beach shops, scooter rentals and restaurants is just perfect. It is set back away from the road with a private coded security gate which is nice although Raro seems a very friendly and... More
