I loved this accommodation. It is in a great location with excellent swimming and snorkeling, close to Wigamore Superstore for everything you need and Wi-Fi, several restaurants including the Café next door which had excellent food, Vaima, and Yellow Hibiscus nearby. There are two units separated by a large deck. I was in Unit 1 which has the best view.... More

Our third time back to Vai Villas and as before just a fantastic place to chill out and have a great relax. Again thanks to Alese for looking after us so well and keeping the whole place beautifully maintained. Thank you Nooroa, we will be back again.

My wife and I stayed in Villa #1. As others have said, the location is great. There are restaurants, Wigmores superstore, coffee shop, DVD rental, etc., all within a short walking distance. Despite that, we really didn't notice any street noise. The villa itself was perfect. Nicely equipped kitchen, BBQ outside,a comfortable bed, and very clean. The service was amazing.... More

We stayed in the larger beach house for a family break and it was excellent. Lots of room, great for self catering and the location was great with wigmores just over the road. Lovely bit of the beach with good snorkelling. Nooroa was easy to deal with when making the booking and alesi was a treat. The only somewhat negative... More

We were fortunate enough to have our wedding ceremony and reception here and we certainly were not disappointed. Upon arrival we were greeted by Lesi who made sure we were looked after throughout our stay. The Villas and the section itself were immaculate and had everything you needed. If you are looking for a beautiful private wedding venue where you... More

Villas located in a great location, next to a supermarket, a dvd rental (in case it rains) and a nice restaurant, a cafe, a rental for cars. The lady taking care of the place was lovely. The beach was nice, it wasn't busy. It was someone in the villa next to us, but it was so relaxed that you didn't... More

We stayed at Vai Villas Beach House for 7 nights. The house was clean and comfortable. Rooms were bright and airy and having two bathrooms was great. Alesi was an absolute gem. If we left dishes on the bench, we would turn our back and they would be washed and dried. She sourced lemons for me and regularly serviced the... More

We stayed at the Vai Villas house, which is next to the twinned villas, and run by the same people. The house was very large, but not the same quality as the villas... and we arrived to find several basic things not working. While the housemaid was wonderful and clearly worked hard to make things right, the manager was unpleasant... More

Our first visit to Rarotonga and on recommendation by friends who holiday here every year (for the past 8 years and who have stayed at many of the top resorts), this is the place to stay and we couldn't agree more. If you are looking for your own fully self-contained beachfront villa, this is definitely it. Well equipped, comfortable, clean... More

We have been to the Cook Islands several times, Vai Villas is the best accommodation we have found by far. Vai Villas is close to shops, restaurants and pristine beaches. You have everything you need on site, full kitchen, laundry, barbeque. A great place for a relaxing break . I would not hesitate to recommend Vai Villas to anyone.
