Despite some areas which were disappointing with this house, we made the most of our stay in Rarotonga. The house was a good size for two couples. We enjoyed the large verandah and the hammock.There were overhead fans in every room which were put to good use as it was hot and humid. the kitchen was poorly supplied with cutlery... More

We have been to the Cook Islands several times now and this visit decided to rent a house instead of staying in a resort. Thoroughly enjoyed having a whole house to stay in, it was great. The house was spacious and comfortable and would easily suit a small family. There was no air con but ceiling fans in all rooms... More

Captain James' Retreat more than lived up to expectations. Perfect setting, great access to everything very spacious with all facilities. We and our kids loved it. We got married on the beach right behind the property and all our guests were extremely jealous of where we were staying. It is very private would recommend over any of the resorts. Great... More

Just my wife and I stayed here for one week. The setting is absolutely idyllic,and the house itself is absolutely great and has everything you need for a total chill out break from the rat race of everyday life. The kayaks are very handy and the snorkelling is out of this world. There are loads of good restaurants within walking... More

There was a kayak and good supplies, eggs butter cereal and milk and a loaf of bread in fridge for our arrival. Modern appliances and cooking equpment, lovely deck and hammocks.... More
