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.

There are three beach villas and one beachhouse which is right behind that villas in a beautiful garden. We stayed some days in that house and must say, this was the best accomodation on our world trip in the first 6 month! It is 25 m to the beautiful sandy and quiet beach, kajaks are for free, also the BBQ.... More

An excellant villa and great beach location. The beach is sandy and very quiet. The villa is very comfortable and Don and May are excellant hosts. Definitely would stay here again when we decide to come back to Rarotonga. We arrived from Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada and were amazed of the beautiful island, people and location.

Our stay in Rarotonga was truly heaven on earth and was made extra special by staying at White Sands. This was truly our home away from home. The location is perfect and we think, the best location on the island. The house was well equipped and we were not wanting for anything (except maybe calmer seas for fishing). However, Don... More

I don't even know where to begin with this piece of paradise. Everything was wonderful, from the warm and inviting hosts to the amazing view to the clean comfortable accomodations everthing was just top notch. I travelled here with my sister and 2 year old daughter from Seattle WA. At first I hesitated to go so far away with a... More

I hardly like to tell you how nice this is just in case when I try to go back I can’t get in because you are there already. This was our third trip to Rarotonga. We have stayed in three different places and this is our favourite so far. We travelled as a family group of four. Pros: • Location.... More

What a perfect piece of "paradise"!.. We loved the "absolute beachfront" of the Whitesands Villas - they're sitting on the sand! We just walked off our deck - down 5 steps on to the beautiful beach - stepped a couple of metres and our toes were in the sparkling blue lagoon... The villa was spacious, very comfortable and very clean-... More

Our group had the 4 villas for a week and it was a perfect spot. Big with heaps of space, clean, well appointed and well serviced. A nice deck for lounging. Good barbecue area for communal stuff and boozing at night. A nice sandy beach at the door and the lagoon is safe as for snorkeling and swimming with a... More

Our holiday was wonderful. The villas, exactly as the internet portrayed. The villas are wonderfully positioned - less wind than just up the beach, great snorkling right in front of the villas and wonderful weather. The only bad comments we can make was the bedding and linen was very stained - not what you expect from a $250.00 per night... More

We stayed here for a few days before moving to a bigger house to stay with a larger group but really wished we had stayed at Whitesands for our entire holiday. Ive stayed at a couple of other places in Raro in the past and have never found anywhere as impecibly clean as this place. Don and May are wonderful... More
