The service from the management and staff was excellent. Very helpful The rooms was very spacious, modern, very clean. Very nice shops/cafés very near by. The burger bar across the road is very good Just wish the pool was heated as was a bit too cold to swim.

My husband and I booked a week's stay at Te Vakaroa Villas on our honeymoon in March, 2016. We were absolutely delighted by the property and the accommodations when we arrived - the suite was in great condition and felt comfortable, safe and luxurious. I particularly loved the bedroom and bathroom, which were beautifully appointed... I want that bathroom in... More

We stayed for a week and thought that the villas were well furnished and well equipped, so we're not disappointed in that respect. We had a downstairs apartment and one drawback was that while their was a small lawn in front of us and good views of the ocean, other guests would set themselves up around the pool virtually outside...

We stayed here for our honeymoon at the beginning of November, overall it was lovely however it could have been a whole lot better for the extremely expensive cost you are paying per night.

Thank you for your email. Transfers are not included due to the fact we have to outsource this service which comes at a cost which we are unable to absorb, very few properties here provide complimentary transfers unless they are very close to the airport.. Yes we did have an issue with the spa and have replaced the pump which... More

This is the second time we have stayed at Te Vakaroa.

Te Vakaroa Villas is gold star accommodation without screaming kids ideal for people wanting a peaceful rest. All self contained and 100 metres to supermarkets made it perfect for our recent fishing trip to the island.
