Has a separate bedroom downstairs with an extra large king and a mezzanine area upstairs with three beds. A deck outside with private seating for enjoying the view. Owners can be contacted if needed and thoughtfully left food items that you might need when you arrive,... More

Outstanding spot if you want flexibility, privacy and the best beach on Ratotonga! Fantastic lagoon, beautiful beach and all the simple things rolled into one!!! Close to Muri but the beach on your doorstep is better! Might as well be over water as you are that close, the odd rooster but great alarm clock to get as much into your... More

I booked Whitesands with Don and May for a holiday in October 20. I arranged it on behalf of family to fly over and stay before I meet up with them a few days later. This was no trouble at all. We have typically stayed in resorts/hotels and visit around once a year but were looking for something more private... More

Have stayed here numerous times over the past few years. Consistently clean, friendly, and comfortable. The owners ensure you have everything you need for a self-sufficient stay on Rarotonga's south coast. The snorkelling and reef are spectacular, and is on a secluded portion of the island away from the major crowds. Reasonably good workout to make the walk to Wigmores... More

This is without doubt the best stretch of beach in Raro. Gorgeous sandy beach and great swimming right out front. The villas are absolutely beachfront, with beautiful views of the aqua marine lagoon. Snorkelling is lovely right out front, too. We brought our five-year-old twins, and it was perfect for them. They loved it, too. Don is an excellent host,... More

We stayed here for two weeks, with our good friends, so 4 adults. It was perfect and very well equipped. Everything you needed was there, down to umbrellas and a safe as well which was great. Eddie was excellent to deal with for bookings and was very professional with good receipts and advice for our stay. You couldn't get any... More

Recently stayed 6 nights in Mikaera Villa. Loved the set up of the villa, absolute (hanging over the sand) beachfront with million dollar view of a beautiful part of the lagoon. The swimming and snorkelling were excellent right out front, and the provision of kayaks was great. The villa itself is very well equipped, everything you could think of is... More

I'm reluctant to write this review as I don't want too many people of know of this piece of paradise! I challenge you to find a more perfect location. We travelled as 2 families with young children and were not disappointed. The proximity of the water was amazing and the ability to snorkel when the tide was high and explore... More

We spent 5 nights here and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The villas are very well equipped. The fruit basket and delivery of fresh tuna was greatly appreciated. But the best part was the beach - lovely for swimming and snorkelling right outside the villa, and very quiet. We would definitely recommend staying here again.
