We spent a 6 days here. Melinda and Andrew were fantastic. The apartment was equipped with everything we needed. Great range of games for the kids, and also a book collection in case you run out.

The complimentary coffee was delish. The pancake breakfast was devine!!! And thanks for taking us to the ceremony, it was a wonderful experience!

Well where to start & what to say that already hasn't been said, Melinda & Andrew the hosts are amazing they went above & beyond to make our stay & our special day something to remember. The food, decorations, from something as small as candle holders was perfect everything we wanted & more. My husband & I stayed in apartment Pepe it was perfect for us really modern had everything you need & more, was a home away from home so relaxing & welcoming. a big plus for us as well was being able to have our friends & family over all hours of the day so thank you so much Melinda & Andrew for putting up with our loud & crazy bunch :) ohhh i have to reccomend Andrews hectic pig on a spit that was gooooood my whole family couldn't stop talking about that & not to forget Melindas choice cooking the works. i could keep going on about our stay but I'll leave it at that. Just once again thank you so much Andrew Melinda & family we will definitely going back to the cook islands. You guys rock :)

We had a wonderful 2 week stay at Kakera! Melinda and Andrew (the hosts) are two of the nicest people you will ever meet. They go above and beyond to take care of their guests. The Apartments VERY well equipped with everything you could need. Tea, Coffee, Sugar, Milk, Juice, Salt and Pepper, Dishes, Blowdryer, Shampoo and Conditioner, Body Wash, Iron, Mosquito Coils, Bug Spray, Magazines, and a HUGE selection of DVD's. The Apartments are nice, modern, clean, and a fantastic value for your money! It does have a bit of a beach right out behind the Apartments, but it's pretty rocky and full of coral. It has a nice deck to make up for it though. Me and my husband very much enjoyed taking our morning coffee to the beach and sitting on the deck and watching the waves roll in. If your looking for beautiful sandy beaches that are good for snorkelling, swimming, or suntanning then it is only a short drive by scooter or car. Very close to Kakera is a nice little coffee place, a great fruit and veggie stand, and the Mooring Restaurant (great little lunch place). If we ever decide to return to Rarotonga for a 3rd time, we would totally stay at Apartments Kakera again. Thanks Melinda and Andrew for everything! What a fantastic 10 year Wedding Anniversary Trip :)

We stayed here twice. Last year and the beginning of this year. What an incredible experience! We felt like we lived there. Melinda and Andrew are wonderful and so are their beautiful children! We had the best time and there isn't anything that they won't and don't do to make your experience great. Loved the Cook islands! There is one but though....DON'T RENT FROM BUDGET!!! The first time we were there we rented and who we went to the airport to drop off the car there was no one there so we left it there with the keys under the mat like Melinda said and there was no one around so no one saw. When we came back to rent again they said that someone took the car for a ride and they found it on the other side of the island. Melinda took care of that as they were going to charge us $70. Well stupidly we rented from them again when we came back. We get home and they've charged our card $60. As they said the gas tank was empty. There were four of us in the car when we filled it just before we got to the airport. When my husband took the keys to the desk the guy said he was going to check the car and be right back well he never came back and that was over 40 min. Of my husband waiting and then. He had to check in or he wouldn't have made the flight. BUDGET HAS SOME BIG SCAM GOING SO BEWARE!!!

What to say that hasn't been said already? Our wonderful Kakera experience startedin Nov 2011, when we confirmed our 10 night reservation for our tropical wedding and honeymoon. From then until our departure we did not have to worry about anything.  How often do you hear about a completely stress free wedding, but in the end that is exactly what we got (and more) thanks to Melinda, Andrew and the team.  For our holiday/honeymoon, we weren't looking for a home away from home, we were looking for a chance to step away from daily routine and cold rainy weather and into a new experience, in this instance a tropical paradise and complete relaxation. Like many before us the team at Kakera helped us slip eagerly and effortlessly into island time. We have no hesitation in recommending Kakera to anyone looking for self catered, private and well serviced apartment style accommodation on Rarotonga.
