Clean modern apartment to relax in after a full on day in the sun. It has everything you could possible want; be it cocktails on your private patio sunbaking or watching a movie on the couch. The owners Brett & Eve go above and beyond ensuring you have a pleasant stay. The location is not central which we loved. You... More

Had a fabulous time at Coral Sands. Brent and Eve were extremely helpful in getting us settled on the island and getting us a scooter which was a huge help! The apartment had everything you could need and the complex is well located on the island.

I am a regular visitor to Rarotonga since 2009. This was my 8th visit and I've stayed in many different places around the island. Some budget, some mid range price. Coral Sands had read well in reviews and it really is a nice small size , well maintained complex of apartments. It was changing owners the day after I arrived.... More

Fantastic apartments, great sunny and sheltered courtyard with swimming pool and fabulous sunsets on the beach. Great hosts - would definitely hire a bike or car when visiting Rarotonga - so many great things to see and do.

Bob gives us numbers of good tips on where to go and the best way to look around the island. DVD library, BBQ, snorkeling gear and aqua shoes are making... More
