Had five nights here at Te Vakaroa and it was heaven! Although this is accommodation, the decor and furnishings made me feel I was 'at home'. Beautiful beach location and a fantastic view from my one bedroom villa. All the staff were friendly, helpful and I was made so welcome. Will definitely return here and stay longer next time!

Website doesn't do it justice - if anyone complains about this place then they obviously can't be pleased. Great service, awesome view, safe, everything at your door step. Excellent pool facilities. A shame the spa was out of service when we were there. Only hiccups were a few broken things in our villa, but they were fixed quickly. Would stay... More

Kia Orana, We at Te Vakaroa Villas are pleased you had an enjoyable time during your stay with us. While we endeavour to have all facilities working for all guests all the time, often this is not possible and we apologise for the Spa being out of commission during your stay.

My wife and I stayed with another couple and our experience was first class in every way. The rooms were beautifully appointed and spotlessly clean, the property was intimate, attractive and immaculately maintained and the service excellent, all on stunning Raratonga. Nick was also the consummate host. We would recommend to anyone.

Te Vakaroa has everything you need. We spent a week there following our wedding and it is just awesome. Everything was easy, the property is perfect and you can spend hours just lounging around the pool. Nick and his team have the right attitude and were accomodating in every way. Highly recommend this place and am planning a return visit... More

Great experience. We loved it. Very quiet & private, but also close to dining and activities. Staff very friendly. We just chilled and relaxed for over a week. Easily recommended. Short walk to bars/dining etc but a walk around the corner of the bay for as long as you want you find all the peace needed and great snorkelling. Staff... More

From the moment my wife and arrived and received a welcoming poolside visit from Owner/Manager Nick, we knew we had made an excellent choice. Very comfortable,well appointed accommodations, and ample amenities. Sitting by the infinity pool, gazing out to the lagoon through the picture frame of Palm trees could not have been more relaxing.

What beautiful accommodation. We loved every minute of our stay at Te Vakaroa. From the tranquil beautifully manicured gardens as you step through the door at the entrance to the Villas. The architecture and the beautifully furnished villas were a real treat. We were looked after by Nick and Poku extremely well if we required it. The 2 bedroom apartment... More

Spectacular view from room and grounds. Meticulously maintained tropical landscaped six room resort. Very private and quiet. Suite is large and open to an awesome view. Outstanding service and staff. Fresh and delicious continental breakfast every morning. Restaurants close by within walking distance on the beach. Had a great time relaxing and enjoying the tropical weather only the Cooks can...

Te Vakaroa is a fantastic property. However, it is locked by bar codes from each access. We arrived at 1.20 pm and kept calling the reception to come and open the main door. My partner ( after 20 mint) managed to get the code of 'someone' . On entering the property and complaining for having to wait, the manager Poka... More

Kia Orana, Apologies for the bad experience thru the time of your stay with us. Its unfortunate that your travel agent arranged all your transfers with a second party without advising us on your arrival details, when in fact we provide transfers complimentary in our own private car. Almost without exception our guests love the privacy created by the coded... More
