I just arrived home yesterday after spending a wonderful week in Rarotonga where I stayed at Castaway Beach Villas. Paul and Michelle who celebrated their first year in the business are wonderful hosts. I found all the staff very friendly and quick to have a chat. Castaway has two bars with their own special qualities - one next to the pool and the other on the beach front. One of highlights for me was relaxing at the beach bar with a cocktail - either alcoholic or non alcoholic. Great place to socialise whilst watching the sunset. Crusoe the cat makes himself very welcome with all the quests.
The room I had was very clean and most importantly the bed was very comfortable. You don't have to go to far into the water to see some of the lovely fish.
Castaway supplies snorkelling gear and beach towels... You will need reef shoes.
As a fund raiser a local rugby team is planning on clearing an area for people to swim in front of the resort so that will be a real asset.
Paul and Michelle thank you for being great hosts.
Michelle, I look forward to seeing your new water feature.
