We had a lovely stay here at Vaikoi, the hosts are simply lovely and amazing. Highly recommended to stay, central to various resorts, bus stops and close to the beach and scooter hire. Self contained small villas are perfect with great kitchen, bathroom and washing machine. surprisingly quiet too.

This was our second visit to Rarotonga but first time staying at Vaikoi. We wanted to be out of town near some of the great snorkeling beaches on the south side of the island and Vaikoi suited the bill perfectly. It's far enough off the main road (on the side way from the beach) so that it's quiet, but only... More

What a wonderful place you have Mata and Kathy. We enjoy our stay with you just that little bit more each time we come. Whether you book the house or one of the smaller bungalows accommodation at Vaikoi is welcoming, private and superb. Just the right mix for us, set in a beautiful tropical garden with the beach only a... More

We have just returned from 11 days, staying at Vaikoi. Our 1 bedroom bungalow was superb. It had absolutely everything we needed. Mata and Kathy made us so welcome. We highly recommend this accommodation in Rarotonga. If you're looking for a self-contained bungalow, this is the place to stay.

This was our third visit to Rarotonga and this time we decided to stay at self-contained accommodation. Vaikoi is located very near the Rarotongan Resort down a road off the main island road. It has two one bedroom bungalows and a larger house for families. The main attraction for us was its location to Aroa Beach which is where we... More

There is only one word to sum up this property "EXCELLENT". We have been staying at this property for the past 3 years and are coming back this year. Kathy and Mata make this property so special. There is 2 one bedroom villas and 1 large 3 bedroom house. We have used the front 1 bedroom villa as well as... More

We had lovely stay at the vaikoi. It did take some finding as its not signposted from the road, so take the name of the road with you. Adopted by the three cats, particularly as our hosts were overseas. When they were around at the early part of the stay we were gifted with fresh bananas and passionfruits. It was... More

We are a family of 3, travelling at the time with a 10 month old, and this was such a perfect little house. We wanted a self-contained place and this was clean and stocked with the necessities when we got there. If you wanted to pay a lot and have a hotel, this isn't the place; but if you want... More
