If you are looking for a more private option for your vacation with no kids this is the place for you. With only 6 beautiful suites each with it's own private patio or balcony that look out onto the infinity pool followed by the ocean it is truly the slice of heaven you are looking for. The grounds/pool are very...

I stayed with my teenaged boys and husband in the two bedroom villas and it worked perfectly for us. All the villas have an amazing view of the infinity pool and lagoon. They are beautifully decorated and well appointed practically. As a family we were able to all lounge outside, chilling, on the enormous deck on large sofas and comfortable...

Te Vakaroa is centrally located on Muri beach. These private villas are very well appointed and modern with stylish decor. The infinity pool overlooks the ocean. We stayed in a one bedroom villa on the ground floor overlooking the pool and ocean. There are only 6 villas in the complex and children under 12 are not permitted so this is...

My husband and I stayed here during our honeymoon and loved it. We stayed in a beautiful two bedroom villa. It was decorated so tastefully and the service was great. We loved breakfast every morning and Nick was very accommodating. We needed a car to get around, he was always quick to make arrangements. It's also in a great location...

This was our second stay at Te Vakaroa and again didn't disappoint. A beautiful scenic relaxing place to stay with friendly helpful staff. Couldn't recommend it highly enough for couples wanting to get away for a quiet time without kids.

I would like to extend my gratitude for your kind words and I am delighted you came and stayed with us again. Kind regards...

We stayed in a two bedroom villa as part of a luxury escapes deal. The villa itself was very nice inside with a lovely pool and outlook to Muri beach and the coral lagoon. As for the rest...well? Firstly the island of Rarotonga is very pretty, laid back and rustic... island life! But average restaurants and other supplies are very...

Kia Orana and thank you for your constructive feedback which has been taken very seriously and discussed with all my staff. I do agree and apologise for the office being unattended on the Sunday morning, there was an error with our roster system and I had left early that morning to New Zealand. My office manager believed I was leaving...

This small complex of 6 villas is beautifully designed with lovely furnishings and quality fittings throughout. Our one bedroom villa was very spacious with a fabulously comfortable four poster bed, excellent bathroom, large indoor and outdoor living areas with high quality kitchen facilities. The very private deck leads out into the lovely gardens and pool/spa area. The magnificent infinity pool...

Things started well when Chad picked us up from the airport. We mentioned to him that we were hoping that Brisbane Broncos would be on tv when we arrived at the villa. He came in, called a mate to see what channel it would be on and put it on our tv for us 👍. With regards to the villa,...
