We visit Rarotonga regularly and always stay somewhere different but not now! From now on we'll be staying right back here. The villas have everything you need, are placed on a stunning beach, a daily fruit platter is dropped off early morning and you receive a lovely welcome pack on arrival. Shine, Tara and Nelly have thought of everything! Their... More

Thank you again for a lovely relaxing holiday. We had rain for the first few days but that was OK as I lied down on the outside day bed and read a couple of books all the time staying dry. This was our third time staying there, 14th time to Rarotonga, and I wouldn't stay anywhere else now. See you... More

The other reviews you see here sum it up pretty well... It would be hard to expand on the great detail that others have said about the property, the owners, the service, the details, location etc etc... What I would like to touch on is just how peaceful the location is relative to other busier places like Muri beach. We... More

I had nice time there. The place has everything. I liked the kitchen facility as I could cook my own food. Spa was added advantage. It is on the beach where you can spend quality time. It has individual hammock as well.

I am so glad that the folks on TripAdvisor recommended this place, because it was wonderful. Our villa was spacious and clean, and the beach was the best we saw on Rarotonga. The only thing that would have made this place perfect would be better WiFi service. It is available at an additional cost, but it is very expensive and... More

From the first interaction with owner Shine (by email) and the Cooks Bay Villas we were made to feel a priority. Arriving late at night by taxi (that Shine helped us arrange), we were warmly greeted by Leia, who showed us to and around our villa (number five) - just superb, it was bigger than I expected, two massive bedrooms,...

5th time staying here and it only gets better. Villa 1 this time, very private with a carport. Spent a total of 12 nights and didn't want to leave, from your own hammock swaying in the breeze, the double kayak's, the best snorkelling we have experience on Raro and the beautiful beach, it's the perfect place for us.

A wonderful place to stay. Very private, as only 5 Villas in c omplex. A lovely beach to swim and walk. The Villa has all the ammenities you could wish for. On arrival the fridge had milk, juice, bread, butter and spreads. Each morning a platter of fresh fruit was delivered to your Villa. Would highly recommend this special place.
