we had a antastic stay at Kakera Apartments. We stayed in Apartment Pepe, the 1 bedroom apartment. The unit was modern, cool, funky and well set out. It was a good location for a short drive to Muri Lagoon as well as into Avarua town. We travelled in September and didn't need Air Conditioning (the fans and windows produced enough... More

We revisted Apartments Kakera twice in the same year on the strength of the warm hosts, great location and private facilities. Apartment Ra was quite warm in October/November but the fan and the private plunge pool helped us cool down. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Andrew and Melinda and the fabulous Apartments Kakera as an excellent, private and quiet destination... More

After planning a surprise getaway for my Mother, I had chosen to stay at Apartments Kakera for our 2 weeks from Jan/Feb 2013 in The Cook Islands. Needless to say this place is absolutely amazing. At first, I was a bit weary being that there isn't too many reviews about Apartments Kakera compared to other Apartments and Home stays in... More

We spent a 6 days here. Melinda and Andrew were fantastic. The apartment was equipped with everything we needed. Great range of games for the kids, and also a book collection in case you run out. The complimentary coffee was delish. The pancake breakfast was devine!!! And thanks for taking us to the ceremony, it was a wonderful experience!

We stayed here twice. Last year and the beginning of this year. What an incredible experience! We felt like we lived there. Melinda and Andrew are wonderful and so are their beautiful children!

What to say that hasn't been said already? Our wonderful Kakera experience startedin Nov 2011, when we confirmed our 10 night reservation for our tropical wedding and honeymoon. From then until our departure we did not have to worry about anything.  How often do you hear about a completely stress free wedding, but in the end that is exactly what... More

We stayed at Apartments Kakera earlier this month. Melinda and Andrew were lovely hosts. We received a free upgrade to the wonderful apartment Pepe. :) Muri is at about 20-30 minutes walk, we hired a car (if you want a scooter, you will need to call in early).

We stayed at Apartments Kakera over Easter this year. We had looked at most of what was available on Rarotonga & each property we saw came up as either far too expensive or just not as nice as we wanted. Apartments Kakera came in the middle price wise & looked divine in any photos we could find. We had a... More
