The Cooks Oasis is a charming little resort close to all amenities and the Airport. Not situated right on the beach and no sea views but therefore affordable and very comfortable. Beware that Air-conditioning costs an extra NZ$ 20 per day and is not included in the rates. This is not made clear when you make the booking. The resort... More

On our way to Aitutaki we needed to stop-over at Rarotonga as both ways there were no immediate connecting flights. The Cooks Oasis Villas accepted even these bookings for short stays (others did not). I was extremely happy with everything: The smooth booking process, the arrangements for late-night arrival, the location (close to the airport), the very spacious and comfortable... More

We stayed at the Cooks Oasis for 5 nights recently and loved it. Roselle and Eric are awesome hosts and made us feel right at home. Roselle organised our pick up from the airport at 5 in the morning, which we really appreciated. Our villa was very clean, spacious and comfortable. The beach just down the driveway was amazing too... More

We stayed here for 12days for our honeymoon.

Rosella was very helpful and made contact with us as soon as we had booked to arrange our travel from the airport after a late flight. Very friendly and professional with daily suggestions of what to explore and assistance to facilitate. The accomodation was private, modern and a close walk to the beach. Highly recommend.
