After the hustle and bustle of Rarotonga (not to mention the US), Mauke was a tranquil paradise, and we couldn't have done better than the Okiva cottage at Tiare cottages. Our hosts, Ta and Teata, made sure we had everything we needed and did all they could to immerse us in the local island culture. Okiva was a great place,... More

2nd time at Mauke and Tiare Cottages. Spent a week here Aug/Sep 2013, wonder why we did not stay for 2 weeks. Maybe next time...Do not compare our 5 star rating with grand hotels and resorts in big cities. O'kiva bungalow by the sea just is our favorite and the best you can get on the island. Why...it has all... More

We loved Mauke and loved Tiare Holiday Cottages. We felt so welcome. It was like being part of the community. Mauke is amazing. We walked a lot and found idyllic beaches and coves. We saw the world's biggest banyan tree, and could never have got there without Ta's guidance. Honestly, if you want to experience the Cook Islands properly forget... More

We have stayed at Tiare Cottages previously but this time we stayed in the Okiva cottage. OMG. We loved it. From the greeting at the airport where we were given ei's to the day we left - once again with new ei's we had a great time. Okiva is a lovely little cottage at the end of a walkway which... More

We stayed at the cottages for two memorable nights during Apr 2013. Our sincere thanks go to the hosts, Ta and Teata, for their warm welcome and generosity. The O Kiva cottage was fantastic; very private with a bush clad walk of 50m to a point above the reef with amazing views of the coast and ocean. Seeing is believing,... More

I couldn't recommend Tiare Holiday Cottages more highly. Mostly because of the wonderful hospitality of the hosts and the beautiful surroundings. The lookout spot is possibly the best place on the planet to sit and feel the fragrant north wind while looking out at the ocean. Teata and Ta are knowledgable about the island (among many other things) and can... More

This was our second trip to the Cook Islands and will hopefully not be the last . Each island has its own personality but there is one common denominater -the friendliness of the islanders.We were royally... More

My wife and I spent a week at Tiare Cottages during a re-run of our honeymoon after our original visit had to be cancelled due to ill health. Mauke is beautiful, the people friendly and Ta and Teata perfect hosts. Highly recommended.

Our family had a wonderful time in Mauke - much of which was due to the fantastic hospitality offered by Tieta and Ta. The cottage we stayed in was roomy enough to house a family of four comfortably even on rainy days. The kids loved the goats, we loved the sea views and a beer at their cliff top sunset... More
