We went to Mangaia for a long weekend from Rarotonga. Staying at the Villas was an absolute joy from initial booking to the farewell from Caroline at the airport. Beautifully appointed villas in a stunning location with amazing breakfasts. We’ll be back.
Perfect location Perfect place Perfect stay.... All in all the villas are a home away from home kitchen , lounge , bathroom and large balcony nothing needed except groceries or Amelia will happily cook for you. Breakfast was included and plentyful a fantastic spot to stay for the sunsets which never disappoint and the beach is only around 20 steps down. ❤️❤️❤️ this place can’t wait to be back there for LOTSSSSSS longer. Enjoy your stay it’s not a resort but you are treated like family which to me means more.
We had a great family trip my dad is Mangaian an hadn't been back in 44years the Villas were very nice space. We spent 12 days. They Villas it self was very nice an good space unfortunately the freezer didn't freeze our meat or freeze icecubes was still liquid when we departed so we put it in the Villas that my dad an the rest of my famz stayed it as there's worked. Our lights in the shower had 2 but only one worked consistently the other worked when it felt like it. The wifi was a good price but it barely worked unless you were close to the main Villa we stayed in no4 you had to go to no2 to get better service also the tv reception was terrible an worked by Analog channel? We spent most of our time in Tamarua but the place was good with a great view an very nice the breakfast was delivered every morning an was good wasn't a continental breakfast though an no bowl of fruit on arrival.. the sliding door was stiff an hard to close an the netting needed to be cleaned or replace abit rusty. The vehicle we hired was great an perfect for our travel was well used an perfect for us. I personally think the price to stay is definitely not worth it very over priced for what you get. But we did love our stay we enjoyed the quiet and the view. But I would stay again but only if I got a deal package as we did this deal.. but loved Mangaia would definitely go back..…
Our visit to Mangaia was just terrific and has left us with wonderful memories. The Mangaia villas are great - a wonderful location, extremely comfortable, and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. The breakfast and dinners that they provided for us were feasts of local cuisine. They gave us a great tour of the island showing us so many beautiful and fascinating aspects - Mangaia is an incredibly interesting place and I highly recommend a visit.
We were the only people staying here, and our villa was clean and well-kept. Great location on a bluff overlooking the ocean, with steps leading down to the beach. We were here to do some birdwatching, but also enjoyed an island tour given by 'Papa Joe'. The woman in charge of running the villas did a great job of cooking good meals, as well as organizing activities and providing airport transfers. It's only a short walk to town, where Babe's store has whatever you might need for snacks, etc. The mosquitos are quite aggressive in the late evening, so probably best to eat dinner inside unless you use a lot of repellant plus long sleeves/pants. There is good Wi-Fi on the porch of the main villa.
