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

Te Vakaroa had absolutely everything we could have wanted. The service was extremely attentive from the time we arrived at the airport to the time we were taken back there. The room (we were in a 1-bedroom villa) was comfortable and spacious. Add to all that a great pool, all the options for things to do and we had a... More

There are 2 types of accommodation - 2 bedroom villas upstairs, and 1 bedroom villas downstairs. Both these options look onto a beautiful infinity pool, which in turn flows to the beautiful Muri beach and lagoon. We... More
