If you are looking for a combination of creature comforts like super-king beds, immaculate kitchen and bathroom, a snazzy new pool, spacious and stylish self-contained living, and all at a great price, then Dave and Sheryl have nailed it. With only six units you will be treated like a... More

First visit to Rarotonga and couldn't have found a better place to stay. Well equipped, clean and the garden studio gave us privacy. Grounds are beautifully kept and very relaxing. Village easily within walking distance and good snorkelling nearby. Dave and Sheryl were fantastic hosts from the minute we were picked up from the airport. Thank-you. Alan

Well equipped, clean, tidy accommodation for a fantastic and relaxing family holiday. Hosts Dave and Cheryl showed great kiwi hospitality and nothing seemed to be a problem for them. The recent addition of a swimming pool made this place even better for our two children aged 10 and 5. Great location out of the main township but close enough to... More

What can we say - Dave and Sheryl are awesome hosts who could not do enough to make our holiday a great experience. From the greet at the airport until being dropped back there 8 days later they go out of their way to make sure we were having a great time. The new pool caps the place of wonderfully.... More

We stayed as a family group in May/June 2015. Dave and Sheryl are obliging and generous hosts. The rooms and property are very well maintained. The pool was a hit with our daughter. The location is handy to Muri if you rent vehicles, or alternatively by the buses. Wiggies is a short walk up the road for supplies. Highly recommended

What a fantastic gem of a place, fantastic value for money. Photos do not do the place credit, close to beach, and supermarket and cafes, bus stops straight outside the gate. The Nu shakes ( coconut ice cream ) down the road were fantastic. Dave and Sheryl have worked incredibly hard to make you feel welcome ( without being intrusive... More

I have recently had another holiday in Rarotonga staying with Dave & Sheryl at the Rarotonga Daydreamer Resort. Once again our stay was amazing with Dave & Sheryl being great hosts. The complex has had the addition of a beautiful swimming pool and garden areas for relaxing in. Fully recommend a stay here and we will be back.

From our earliest email inquiry 'til our departure from the airport, Dave and Sheryl were wonderful hosts and we highly recommend their resort. Our apartment was super-clean, spacious and airy and was regularly serviced. Our garden was beautifully maintained and the pool was great. After our busy days exploring Rarotonga, the resort was our quiet tropical paradise to come back... More
