A bit late for a review but me and my partner stayed in Villa 1 from the 5th dec to 19th dec and couldn't have found a better place to stay. Such a beautiful villa, from location to quietness, privacy and the 5star service Chad gave us. Have recommended to all family and friends and we will definitely be back... More

The villa was perfect for a couple like us and we enjoyed the beach , lagoon and the villa facilities. It rained two days so the tv and movies plus comfy loungers were a boon and not often available elsewhere. We just blobbed! The staff here are lovely and really care about your comfort. Anything we wanted - they were... More

This place would have been very nice a number of years ago but is let down by the lack of maintenance on small things. No batteries in the smoke alarms or the remote for the air con. The swing on the porch had rusted out and had fallen to pieces and the ropes arond the deck had broken and had... More

Kia Orana, It is of great concern to me regarding the situation you found at our Villas. Unfortunately I had been hospitalised prior to and during your stay and was unable to ensure all was correct at the Villa. This is still no excuse for the situation and I wish to apologise accordingly. Our staff do their best (as you... More

Even though it was a short stay, given we were accommodation hoping, we really loved the place and would go back to stay longer.

The location of the villa is perfect as it is close to the many eating establishments of Muri and you are able to walk the length of Muri Beach or go by road to get to them. If you are wanting affordable luxury (self catering) then this is the place for you. My partner and I had 7 nights here... More

The villas are very well equipped and we were made to feel welcome by Chad and his wife. However, the bedding needs some serious updating and the mattresses need replacing. We were able to walk to local restaurants each night, but I would suggest that you take a torch as you are often in the dark with very little light... More

Kia Orana, Thanks for your comments. The beds are a premium hotel design used widely in Cook Island resorts and approximately 3 years old. We have not had past clients comment adversely on them. As you say, thru your time with us unfortunately the weather was very poor, which reduced you to 'inside living'.most days, and I guess this reflected... More

Down side was the beach and water were both very rocky and not suitable for swimming which was disappointing and the villa its self could do with some TLC. We looked through their newer resort in Muri and while we preferred the location and privacy of Rendezvous there is a distinct difference in age and presentation which would not take... More
