Great location, we hired a car, Vaikoi was a great spot to access the snorkelling and drive to other great spots on the Island. We stayed in the 3 bedroom villa and it was very clean and more than spacious enough for our family of 5. Mata is a wonderful host, not at all intrusive. We loved our time at... More

Great location great hosts and great little villas. Loved our stay and would definitely come back here again. Excellent service and well priced villas. Especially the three bedroom house. The hosts are friendly but stay out of the way for privacy. Highly recommended.

We had a lovely stay here at Vaikoi, the hosts are simply lovely and amazing. Highly recommended to stay, central to various resorts, bus stops and close to the beach and scooter hire. Self contained small villas are perfect with great kitchen, bathroom and washing machine. surprisingly quiet too.

This was our second visit to Rarotonga but first time staying at Vaikoi. We wanted to be out of town near some of the great snorkeling beaches on the south side of the island and Vaikoi suited the bill perfectly. It's far enough off the main road (on the side way from the beach) so that it's quiet, but only... More

We have just returned from 11 days, staying at Vaikoi. Our 1 bedroom bungalow was superb. It had absolutely everything we needed. Mata and Kathy made us so welcome. We highly recommend this accommodation in Rarotonga. If you're looking for a self-contained bungalow, this is the place to stay.

This was our third visit to Rarotonga and this time we decided to stay at self-contained accommodation. Vaikoi is located very near the Rarotongan Resort down a road off the main island road. It has two one bedroom bungalows and a larger house for families. The main attraction for us was its location to Aroa Beach which is where we... More

We had lovely stay at the vaikoi. It did take some finding as its not signposted from the road, so take the name of the road with you. Adopted by the three cats, particularly as our hosts were overseas. When they were around at the early part of the stay we were gifted with fresh bananas and passionfruits. It was... More
