Dan and May are very helpful and welcoming nothing is to much trouble,and the villas are so well appointed with everything you would possibly need like home from home and such a bonus being on the beautiful beach, we have stayed there for 10 years now and will keep going back for as long as they will have us.

Villa is great with heaps of space and an awesome deck to sit out on. We had two villas next to each other for a group of friends and it worked out great. Hosts are very nice and friendly. Awesome location for relaxing but you will need a scooter or car to get to town or Muri for anything.

Very tidy with 3 beds upstairs and a double bed below. Good bathroom facilities and kitchen . The owner gave us some space...

I should have written this review years ago when we first stayed at Whitesands. We have now been 6 times and this year our extended family went for a special birthday celebration. The location and setting are second to none. The accommodation is excellent and exactly as described on the website. And Don and May are always excellent hosts with...

This property and location is an amazing, peaceful paradise, even better than expected. The hosts were friendly and helpful, providing a basket of fruit and fresh fish caught by Don, which was delicious. The villas were exactly as described, lovely, clean, with everything you could possibly need and the views were breathtaking. The location is perfect for the best snorkeling...

Outstanding accommodation, outstanding location and our hosts Don & May are 2nd to none! The villa had everything we needed for our 3 week stay. The location is central to everything, only a short 15 minute drive to Avarua for shopping. If you don't have a car, the bus will stop right in front of the Villas if you simple...

Outstanding spot if you want flexibility, privacy and the best beach on Ratotonga! Fantastic lagoon, beautiful beach and all the simple things rolled into one!!! Close to Muri but the beach on your doorstep is better! Might as well be over water as you are that close, the odd rooster but great alarm clock to get as much into your...
