4 adult children with partners & Mum & Dad. The two villas were ideal for us. We had the place to ourselves. BBQ, outdoor oven, infinity pool, plenty of loungers to go around, & the 3 legged guard dog. When we were lazy, lunch was just the next terrace down. And how did Andy & Michelle organise those whales to... More

One of the relaxing holiday ever. The accommodation was superb beds super comfortable. There restaurant rates amongst the best on the Island. A small menu but superb. We can't praise our hosts enough. They made our Holiday as enjoyable as it was.

We arrived in the dark, for 4 nights, and were pleasantly surprised when we got up in the morning and saw the view of the pool and the ocean. We enjoyed our meals outside at the terrace. Spacious, nice kitchen, washing machine, tv with loads of movies, really a comfortable villa! Hospitable hosts Michelle and Andy, who gave good advice,... More

Just the place to totally relax and unwind. The villa was spacious, airy, clean and comfortable. Fabulous view and sunsets and a stunning pool that we virtually had to ourselves. Ideal if you want privacy and quiet in a tropical setting. Owners on site, yet discreet, friendly and helpful. We will be back.

We stayed at Black Rock Villas recently and we could not have been more satisfied with the experience. Andy and Michelle, our hosts, were absolutely fabulous in making us feel welcome and helping us choose activities for the week. And their precious dog Lucy was our daily companion as she greeted us each morning and evening. This property is close... More

My husband and I travelled to the Cook Islands for our honeymoon and we stayed at the Black Rock Villas. The hosts Michelle and Andy, make you feel welcome from the moment you meet them. You are just a stone's throw away from the beautiful water and white sand. You can actually hear the waves crashing from your bedroom. The... More

My wife and I had lunch at the cafe and we were super pleased with the quality of food and service. It was so nice to see a selection of tapas and mains that didn't consist of fried food and carb's. Michelle and the team have done a superb job establishing the cafe/ bar. We also looked at the villa's... More
