We stayed for 9 days at this outstanding location. The villa is right on the beach with a lovely island in front on the edge of the reef, so you have some protection from the wind. The lagoon has heaps of fish so great for snorkling.Ina who looks after the villas cant do enough to help you with info on... More

This was more than we could have hoped for. On the beach, quiet, easy walking to many of the places we needed. Hired bicycles and a scooter from that was easy to get to. Was a telecom hotspot. All in all much better than any of the resort type places we viewed as we walked long the beach. Kayaks were... More

Kings Beach Villas are situated on what I think is the prettiest beach in Rarotonga - Muri Beach - and is easy walking distance to 5 restaurants/cafes; hire cars; post office; mini-marts; petrol stations; internet access points and takeaways. There are three little 'motus' (islands) off shore with waving palm trees to enjoy; golden sand; and we were closest to... More

A perfect place to stay right on the beach with kayaks provided and easy walking distance to restaurants and muri lagoon tourist attractions. We stayed in villa one which was well equipped with everything needed to self cater. Good value for money, would definately go back there to stay.

We stayed at Kings Beach Villas for 12 days. Ina organised our transfers from the airport and for our first trip to the Cook Islands, this made it hassle free. We were deposited to this beautiful beach side villa, late in the afternoon. On arrival, we were very pleased with the accomodation. Separate bedroom (with it's huge bed), and a... More

Kings Beach Villas is like a typical kiwi bach - everything you need in a cute, compact little building. The location was fantastic, right on Muri beach, just a few seconds walk from the front porch to the water. There were a couple of kayaks which were free to use. We took them over to the island that Captain Tama's... More

Kings beach villas are not flash, but they are very clean, well equipped and maintained. If you are looking for resort accommodation then don’t stay here. The location is amazing and you can walk to everything. They are definitely value for money if you want to be self sufficient. We would definitely stay there again. Ina was a great host,... More

I had already booked and paid a deposit on a villa at King's Beach before I got on here and read the reviews. After that I stressed so much that I had just ruined my family's holiday and that we were going to be staying in a dump. It was such a relief to arrive at the unit to find... More
