A group of 16 of us recently spent 6 nights at Te Vakaroa Villas and we had a ball! Nick (one of the owners and on site most days) couldn't have been more accommodating and Poko (Office Manager and font of all knowledge) with her lovely smile and local knowledge just made everyone happy! The lovely ladies who delivered our...

Our family of four (two adults, two twelve year olds) spent a blissful five days at Te Vakaroa. Everything was perfect - from the airport transfer, to our arrival, right through to our late check-out. Nothing was too much trouble, and everyone was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Our a two-bedroom villa was huge, and had wonderful views across Muri Lagoon....

We were one of 2 couples that stayed in a 2 bedroom villa at Te Vakaroa in August and have to say Wow! The rooms were immaculate, the staff were fantastic and our location was perfect. The villa suited us perfectly and there was plenty of space for 4 adults and had everything we needed to enjoy a relaxing holiday....

This was our first stay in Rarotonga, so we wanted to go "up-market" to avoid disappointment. Te Vakoroa delivered!!!. From the friendly shuttle driver, to the owner, receptionist and room staff we could not have asked for more. Very relaxed and laid back, but efficient. The apartment was spacious, and well equipped. We enjoyed the ability to cook for ourselves,...

This was our first stay in the Cook Islands and we hit the jackpot! Te Vakaroa Villas has gorgeous views and the villas have everything we could need. Whenever we told people around the Island where we were staying, they all spoke of it as the best and just walking around, we didn't see any better. Someone posted that the...

I forgot to do a review the last time we stayed here for 7 nights July 2012. The place is simply described as absolutely fantastic, the best facilities on the island,awesome staff and the only negative is the experience of feeling "not wanting to leave" when you depart. We travel to Raro often and have previously stayed at the Crown...

My husband and I stayed here at the start of the year. Te Vakaroa Villas seemed to us like the number one choice when staying at Rarotonga and with there only being 6 villas we loved that it would be private.On arrival we were offered a free upgrade as all the other rooms were taken with guests. The upstairs villa...

Wow! Throughout our week at Te Vakeroa we pinched ourselves regularly to ensure we were not dreaming. Having booked through our highly efficient and perceptive travel agent Flight Centre's Lynaire Monnery, we hoped it would be good.

We ( a family of three) had a fabulous Thanks Giving (2011) at a 2 bedroom villa at Te Vakaroa which is located on Muri beach . In addition to the location, the quality of the accommodation at Te Vakaroa and the high level of service were key in influencing our return to Raro. On this occasion (June/July) however we...
