Secluded from the rest of the world, looking out over a turquoise lagoon.
Semi detached but you wouldn't know it.
lots of goodies (bikes, boards, masks,towels) even beer and wine on arrival.
weather was wet but the water was beautiful and snorkelling amazing.
Would recommend a car to give you an opportunity to see the rest of the island at your own pace.
Fish and chips, proper meals, food galore all within a few minutes.
only 5hrs from Sydney, we hope to return often.
LOVED our stay! Such a perfect spot right on the beach, just like everyone says it's so good to have the SUP's, kayaks etc all there for you to use, which makes doing things like that much less of an effort. Amazing to have food basics, beers & wine to start with,so appreciated after arriving from our flight! Also the beach was a lot cleaner than others we visited, no seaweed on the sand making a fishy smell (though that may have been from the storm?) Villa is lovely & has everything you need
We loved every aspect of Beach Vibe. It was spacious, clean, modern and well appointed, private, and right on the beach. Most of the time we had the lagoon to ourselves, and there was some great snorkeling out front. We also really appreciated the breakfast starter pack, all the water equipment which was in good condition (we used the snorkels, reef shoes, kayaks, SUP), and the movies/shows on offer.
The local shop (Wigmore's) was within walking distance and had a good range of groceries. As per previous reviews, I still would recommend hiring a car in order to enjoy Rarotonga fully!
Overall we loved our stay at Beach Vibe and will definitely look at staying here again if we return to Rarotonga.
My husband and I chose Beach Vibe for an 8 night stay. We were leaving the children at home and taking some time out for us to explore Rarotonga and get some RnR. I did a lot of research before choosing Beach Vibe. The minute I saw the listing on Trip Adviser tho I was hooked. The attention to detail, the panaramic views, the absolute beachfront, air conditioning... it ticked ALL the boxes on our list and we were super excited. We were not disappointed. From the filtered water in the kitchen, the use of the bikes, the mosquitto bug power adapter things... the owners have thought of everything. And it shows. As everything was taken care of, we could get around to simply relaxing! There was even soy milk in the fridge for me (I don't eat dairy) and this attention to detail and effort to go the extra mile was appreciated. Thank you.
If you are wanting a resort experience, this is not the property for you. This is away from the Muri mega and while I can't speak for other months of the year, it was quiet and peaceful and you felt at times, like you had the entire lagoon to yourself. I loved it. We did go and explore Muri and the other resorts during our stay but we also loved coming back to our own private abode!
We made use of the bikes, snorkles and kayaks. The snorkelling in front of the property is superb. We had the best spot on the island in my opinion (and we walked and biked the island over). It's so handy in it's location to Wigmores (small supermarket) and we predominantly cooked all our own food. We would pop down almost daily for fresh produce and supplies. But in a kitchen as nice as this one, with such a stunning view, it was a pleasure to cook our own meals. If cooking isn't for you, there are two close-by restaurants - The Yellow Hibiscus and Vaima Restaurant with it's lovely outside dining. We ate out on the deck or most of our meals. This was one of my highlights. I also loved the bean bags and would sit on the sun deck and read/people watch (it's not a busy beach but you do occasionally see walkers coming past). The bed was comfortable, the walk in lounge was fantastic. We used the blender a lot (and the ice tray in the freezer!). For a home away from home, this has everything you want/need and MORE. We will be back! Thank you :) (Kelly and Rob are both lovely and it was great to meet you both!).
My husband and I recently stayed at the Beach Vibe Villa from the 10-19 Feb to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary.
WOW, WOW, WOW !!!!!!
What an incredible place this was. The villa was so clean, fresh, the beach is on the doorstep and the sunsets were just stunning. Everything you need is there. From a fully contained kitchen ,snorkeling gear, kayak's, bean bags on the deck, fresh clean linen, washing machine and the list is endless....
Kelly was so lovely to deal with and always made sure we were OK and didn't require anything. She was very professional, approachable and such a lovely down to earth lady.
I can't thank you enough Kelly for your warm welcome and hospitality.
The best thing we did was hire a car in town to be able to see and explore the island in our time. We paid $35 per day for a Toyota Yaris and this was definately worth the $ spent.
On the 19th Feb we sadly checked out of the Beach Vibe Villa to check into the Pacific Raratonga Resort for 5 days. This was a beautiful resort , however we loved and preferred our stay at the Beach Vibe Villa so much more as it was just exceptional, private and was our own home.
Would we be back ?????
100% in a heart beat. My husband and I travel 2 times a year international in luxury accommodation and we both agree that the Beach Vibe Villa exceeded our expectations by a mile away.
We honestly can't wait to return.
Thank you for such a memorable trip Kelly.
Adam and I wish you all the best and look forward to see you soon xxxx

What a place. The Villa comes with all you need a great bathroom amazing kitchen. Loved there were bikes u could ride down to wigmores for some bits.
We had a few days of rain but the tv has a hard drive with heaps of great tv shows so plenty to do.
They were doing some site work next door with there rocks which was really loud for 2 days the owners shouted us lunch to get us out of the house away from noise. We thought that was amazing they didnt have to do that, these things happen.
We go to Raro every year we love this place totally be back.
Book it you wont regret it.
Excellent accomadation with all mod cons you could possible need, a beautiful beach at your doorstep & great location, close to a general store for supplies if you wish to self cater & ,not to far to other resorts/restaurants if you wish to dine out.
