We found the house perfect for our recent holiday. It was situated right on the beach, with a huge covered deck area, looking out onto the lagoon. Great outdoor furniture and a BBQ. Kayaks are provided also reef shoes. masks and snorkels. Loved falling asleep listening to the waves breaking on the reef. Appreciated the fully equipped kitchen as we... More

Awesome stay 5 nights in amazing vaimanga. This place is special not because of the house quality or size but because of the location, stepping down off the deck try's aight on to the beach, waking up opening the curtains and being absolute beach front - priceless. Would recommend this every time If it's a quiet period don't be afraid... More

Main Islander on the beach really is a great location to stay in if you want to be away from the crowds but still have easy access to everything. The Beach is absolutely amazing and I would highly recommend you stay at any of the many houses for rent at Vaimaanga. Wigmores Supermarket and two restaurants are within walking distance.... More

My partner and I stayed at the main house with the larger deck in August '11. It really is a magical looking straight out across the lagoon from any window which gives the place its charm. The house is unpretentious, some may find it a little too well worn, but it fits in well with the surroundings and laid back... More

I stayed at the Sunset Beach Bungalos. The place itself was nice and exactly what I was looking for. Quiet and comfortable. The owner Geoff however was a different matter. He picked me up from the airport and took me to the place no problem but as part of his showing me around felt the need to tell me about... More

Extremely beautiful location. You have the road that goes around the island directly behind the Villa. But in front you have a HUGGGGGEEEE deck, grass area, and then beach. Lovely place to swim as there is hardly any coral and you can swim even when it's low tide. There is a great piece of live coral if you walk out... More

During my recent trip to Raro I stayed at two of the Main Islander properties. This review relates to Tia's Main Islander which is right on the beach. Open your doors and feel the sea breeze gently cooling you down as you paddle in the lagoon at the bottom of the stairs off your deck. I was impressed upon walking... More

What more can I say!? We stayed at Tia's Islander on the Beach, my husband and I and our 2 children. The service was exceptional, the lady who came to tidy up was like a ghost :D You only knew she had been because everything was tidy and clean. Our hosts were friendly and helpful (they do great smoothies at... More

Walking into the house you are immediately impressed by the view through the bedroom. Floor to ceiling glass revels that from bed to beach to spectacular, idyllic swimming in lagoon is mere steps and that the beach has an almost private feel. The house is large, sprawling, like the beach pad you always wanted with a casual air but plenty... More

We stayed at Tia's Islander on the Beach which is a 2 bedroom cottage directly on the beach at Vaimaanga - you walk down the steps from the deck straight onto the sand. The beach here is much less rocky than other beaches in Rarotonga so you don't shred your feet when you go for a swim or snorkle (heaps... More
