We were a family group of six adults and three children. We stayed in two of the apartments, both offered plenty of space and were very clean and tidy. They have full cooking and washing facilities, large comfy beds and they are situated in a quite area, with next to no roosters to wake you in the morning. Melina and... More

We stayed in the two brm apartment Ra, late April 2016. The apartment was beautifully decorated, extremely comfortable and very well equipped for self-catering - that kitchen was amazing and there's a bbq available as well. We were two singles and the apartment was more than large enough to accommodate our individual 'space' needs. While we didn't use it, the... More

Loved our time at Kakera! Thoroughly enjoyed the privacy and tranquilty of these apartments. An ideal home away from home complete with spacious living, pool and self catering options. The beach and reef only 15 metres from the back gate, and beautiful Muri beach less than five minutes drive down the road. It was a pleasure to meet Melinda and... More

We stayed in late April / early May for 8 nights in the one bedroom (Pepe) apartment and loved our stay. Fantastic roomy private apartment with everything you need including a great outdoor area. It was good having our own laundry facilities, especially when travelling with a child. Location is nice and close to Muri. For us having an apartment... More

I love this place.The entire place (I got a walk through of a lot of the units) is exquisitely clean, light-filled, fresh and modern, and this works well for me as I need clean lodging in order to relax. Each unit is so lovingly maintained in its own colorful and fresh motif that I could hardly decide which my favorite... More

Virtually our entire outrigger canoe team of 10 people descended on Melinda and Kakera Villa together for Rarotonga's huge annual Vaka Eiva event, and right from the very first minute Melinda made us feel welcome and at home. The location is gorgeous and quite convenient to anything you need (bearing in mind the small size of the island) and the... More

When we researched accommodation we read many great reviews for Kakera, but were slightly concerned that there were no recent reviews (the most recent was over one year old). I can only guess that in the past year Kakera guests have returned home completely relaxed, happy and content, too relaxed to bother with review writing. I'm not in the habit... More

We revisted Apartments Kakera twice in the same year on the strength of the warm hosts, great location and private facilities. Apartment Ra was quite warm in October/November but the fan and the private plunge pool helped us cool down. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Andrew and Melinda and the fabulous Apartments Kakera as an excellent, private and quiet destination... More
