Thank you Michelle for our stay. You made it so pleasant. We needed to change our accommodation at the last minute and she was very accommodating. The villas are within an easy walking distance to a great snorkelling spot. The villas have two bedroom and two ensuites a great compact kitchen and a fantastic infiñity pool. We were lucky enough...

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

We stayed here as a family as we were attending a wedding at Sunset Resort. Nothing is too much trouble for Michelle and Andy they even lent us their car to take our adult children to the airport while we stayed on. The 'mascot' is a beautiful three legged dog who we honestly believed loved our company however as soon... More

The hosts Michelle and Andy are AMAZING - they will make you feel at home with their warmth and welcoming vibes. I highly recommend this place as the atmosphere reflects perfection - everything from the food to the amazing view whilst having lunch. A place for a girls or boys catch up for lunch or even a family brunch. The... More
