Te Vakaroa Villas is probably the best luxury self contained place to stay in Muri. The location is great, and the apartment (the "Villas" are not freestanding) was spotless, very comfortable, very well equipped and even though all the apartments were occupied during our stay we felt we had OK privacy. A few smaller negatives: During our stay, the jacuzzi... More

Have just recently left Rarotonga after a one week stop in the Cook Islands enroute to New Zealand. Myself and two friends spent 7 nights at the Te Vakaroa Villas in a two bedroom villa / apartment and we were very impressed. The units are beautifully decorated, well laid out and extremely comfortable. The pictures on the properties website do... More

We stayed at Te Vakaroa villas for 8 nights and were very impressed. Pictures on the website are true to life. We stayed in a two bedroom villa which was gorgeous. Was well equipped with everything you could need. Free airport transfers and breakfast each morning which we looked forward to! The villas are located on Muri beach - great... More

This was our very first trip abroad & could not have started at a better place. We were greeted by our friendly driver at the airport & given a great commentary on our drive to the villa. The manager & office surroundings were very welcoming. Our bags were whisked away to our room while we were given the keys, pass... More

This would have to be one of the most relaxing holidays I have ever had.... the team at Te Vakaroa Villas are amazing.... they are there to answer any questions and set us in the right direction. The Villas are new and immaculately clean. Every detail has been thought of and there was nothing that we required during our stay.... More

We stayed here for five nights during our honeymoon trip. The villas are pretty new (4 years old) and well equipped with everything you need. Big advantages: - directly located on the beach with perfect views (we had a two bedroom villa with the balcony overlooking the beach) - free snorkel and canoe equipment - amazing tropical breakfast - great...

Negatives: If your looking for privacy this doesn't have it. Similar to being on a cruise ship with the same type of guests. The janitor who likes to remind everyone he is also the owner (part owner in actual fact) comes across quite arrogant which is unjustified. Apartment could have been cleaner as there were quite a few ant trails... More

I almost don't want to tell everyone how fantastic Te Vakaroa Villas is because once people discover it, the place might be booked out when we want to visit again!! My husband and I travelled to Raratonga for the first time in January, staying in a 2 bedroom villa and from the moment we walked through the front gate of... More

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
