We are a family of 3, travelling at the time with a 10 month old, and this was such a perfect little house. We wanted a self-contained place and this was clean and stocked with the necessities when we got there. If you wanted to pay a lot and have a hotel, this isn't the place; but if you want...

Lois & I spent 7 days in Rarotonga, staying at Vaikoi back in 2010. This was our 2nd stay with Kathy & Maata. We have absolutely no reservation in recommending Vaikoi. We wanted something self contained, clean, comfortable and quiet and it was this and more. It provided everything we needed and was in immaculate condition, with very hospitable hosts...

We stayed in one of Vaikoi’s one-bedroom bungalows for 4 nights in June 2012. The accommodation was perfect for what we needed. The bungalow was clean and tidy, had a great bathroom with a good shower, a good size deck, lovely surroundings and barbeque facilities (shared with the other bungalow). All the basic supplies were provided, plus breakfast foods and...

In rarotonga for the first time for a wedding and the stayed with another couple in the Vaikoi house. The accomadtion was clean and tidy with plenty of room. What I like most about the house was it was a wonderful alternative to resorts allowing freedom to cook the local fish yourself. The rooster can drive you a bit crazy...

Thanks to our wonderful hosts, Kathy and Mata, we had 2 wonderful weeks in Raratonga. This was our first visit to the Cook Islands and we certainly were not disappointed. Mata met us at Bungalow 2 (1 bedroom bungalow) when we arrived very early one morning. Mata's warm welcome was very sweet. The bungalow was spotless and a breakfast pack...

We stayed at Vaikoi on our way back to Melbourne from Vancouver (after an Alaskan cruise) and were very impressed. We stayed in a one bedroom cottage which was equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay (even powder for the washing machine). Vaikoi is situated in lovely garden surrounds and each cottage is in a separate garden area. There...

“Have a choice of one bedroom bungalows for couples or a 3 bedroom house for larger groups such as a family.”

“any of mata's two small or one large bungalows, on vaikoi property, are wonderful- depends on the size of your group- the two small bungalows are only for 1 or 2 people, but the large house has several bedrooms. all are in a garden setting, and spaced far enough apart to provide privacy and quiet evenings.”
