On my second visit to Cook Islands, after 30 years, I again didn't expect much! While the island is still not fully ready for tourists, the restaurant and food offerings at least, have multiplied. Transportation is still a problem, there are buses that operate "once in a while". People are very friendly, and the island is still much original, worth... More

My husband and I recently stayed at Te Vakaroa Villas in Rarotonga. We flew in from London, via LA and it was a wonderful week of relaxation before flying on to NZ. The property is fantastically maintained daily (not a dent or scratch to be seen!), the villa (we had a 2 bedroom one) was huge, beautifully appointed and with... More

My husband and I stayed at Te Vakaroa the first week of January. From the minute we arrived we thought that we landed in paradise. The staff and owner Nick were very friendly and help full. For a small intimate property it is very private every thing was thought out perfectly. The grounds are maintained beautifully, the pool very refreshing,... More

My wife and I had a 7 day stay here in September, Te Vakaroa lived up totally to our expectations, the villas are extremely comfortable, very well appointed and luxurious. A couple of steps from Muri Beach and a number of good restaurants nearby (Flame Tree being the pick). Great pool at Te Vakaroa, walking distance to local shops, Owner... More

We stayed here for two weeks and it is exactly as pictured. Poco, who works reception, and Jay, who maintains the grounds and pool; and Nick, the owner were so pleasant and helpful. Any little problem or concern was addressed immediately; even Nick on his day off changed two burned out light bulbs for us. The daily continental breakfast was... More

Spotless rooms. Unparalleled views of a dream lagoon. Amazing staff. The kind of place fellow travelers stop outside to ogle. And while it's technically at the heart of Raro's "tourist" beach, by contrast to Hawaii, Tahiti, even Samoa, it's EMPTY. Mid-season, midday on a Saturday, you can still be alone here...easily. Nick, Poko, et all made us feel at ease,... More

What you see in the photos is exactly what you get plus more. Wish we could have stayed longer but will plan to return. The weather was great and Te Vakaroa... More
