This house is one of the best positions on the island. Set right on the beach. We live on a beach in Australia and spend a lot of holidays looking for nice beaches. We were pleasantly suprised with what we found. We were sitting on the deck having breakfast on day and a turtle swam by 50 m away. The... More

Main Islander is one of four properties on Rarotonga owned by Tia and Geoff Bergin, dba Beach Island Holidays. We stayed at Main Islander in ’03 and experienced no problems with the Bergins. A second visit was planned for July 6 – July 18/15 and in October ’14 we inquired by e-mail about availability. Tia responded in an e-mail that... More

WOW, what a fantastic place to stay! Our family of 4 stayed here for 15 nights and found the house to be more than adequate with plenty of room and all the facilities and equipment we needed. The beds were very comfy, use of Kayaks and loads of outdoor furniture. The house itself is simple and not super flash but... More

We found the house perfect for our recent holiday. It was situated right on the beach, with a huge covered deck area, looking out onto the lagoon. Great outdoor furniture and a BBQ. Kayaks are provided also reef shoes. masks and snorkels. Loved falling asleep listening to the waves breaking on the reef. Appreciated the fully equipped kitchen as we... More

Awesome stay 5 nights in amazing vaimanga. This place is special not because of the house quality or size but because of the location, stepping down off the deck try's aight on to the beach, waking up opening the curtains and being absolute beach front - priceless. Would recommend this every time If it's a quiet period don't be afraid... More

Main Islander on the beach really is a great location to stay in if you want to be away from the crowds but still have easy access to everything. The Beach is absolutely amazing and I would highly recommend you stay at any of the many houses for rent at Vaimaanga. Wigmores Supermarket and two restaurants are within walking distance.... More

My partner and I stayed at the main house with the larger deck in August '11. It really is a magical looking straight out across the lagoon from any window which gives the place its charm. The house is unpretentious, some may find it a little too well worn, but it fits in well with the surroundings and laid back... More

I stayed at the Sunset Beach Bungalos. The place itself was nice and exactly what I was looking for. Quiet and comfortable. The owner Geoff however was a different matter. He picked me up from the airport and took me to the place no problem but as part of his showing me around felt the need to tell me about... More

Extremely beautiful location. You have the road that goes around the island directly behind the Villa. But in front you have a HUGGGGGEEEE deck, grass area, and then beach. Lovely place to swim as there is hardly any coral and you can swim even when it's low tide. There is a great piece of live coral if you walk out... More

During my recent trip to Raro I stayed at two of the Main Islander properties. This review relates to Tia's Main Islander which is right on the beach. Open your doors and feel the sea breeze gently cooling you down as you paddle in the lagoon at the bottom of the stairs off your deck. I was impressed upon walking... More
