My husband & I stayed at Rumours in Villa 1, from July 13th-28th. It was beyond our expectations from the moment we got there. Belinda & Andrew make you feel like family, and are always available to make sure you have everything you need for the perfect stay. They supply a delicious & filling breakfast & they have coffee &... More

Rumours Luxury Villas exceeded our highest expectations. We stayed for a few nights in Villa 4, situated on a beautiful beachfront, quiet, private and luxurious. The villa itself was the most beautiful I've ever stayed in – loved the design and attention to detail. Felt like royalty staying here. Belinda and Andrew were perfect hosts – they made us feel...

We stayed here for a week in Villa 1, not quite beachfront but we had our own private access to the beach in just seconds. In all honesty this villa has advantages over the beachfront ones as it is more private and sheltered from the wind and enables you to sit out on the decking enjoying breakfast and evening drinks....

If you are visiting Rarotonga I would recommend going and treating yourself to an amazing experience. I was treated to a body scrub by a friend and then I went back and had a water massage. Both were outstanding. Shelley was very professional and friendly.

We loved rumours. We took the 2 bedroom villa and shared with our daughter and son In law. There was plenty of room for the 2 couples. Our villa opened straight onto the most beautiful beach with great snorkelling. We had a private spa and pool and large TV with 450 movies.The owners could not have been more helpful. The... More

I can remember being very sick in hospital some years ago and the one thing that helped was planning and dreaming of one day being able to visit one of those picturesque South Pacific Islands with palm trees and white sandy beaches. That dream was realised when my two sisters and I were able to spend a weekend at Rumours... More
