My husband and I travelled to the Cook Islands for our honeymoon and we stayed at the Black Rock Villas. The hosts Michelle and Andy, make you feel welcome from the moment you meet them. You are just a stone's throw away from the beautiful water and white sand. You can actually hear the waves crashing from your bedroom. The... More

My wife and I had lunch at the cafe and we were super pleased with the quality of food and service. It was so nice to see a selection of tapas and mains that didn't consist of fried food and carb's. Michelle and the team have done a superb job establishing the cafe/ bar. We also looked at the villa's... More

We stayed here as a family as we were attending a wedding at Sunset Resort. Nothing is too much trouble for Michelle and Andy they even lent us their car to take our adult children to the airport while we stayed on. The 'mascot' is a beautiful three legged dog who we honestly believed loved our company however as soon... More

Would sincerely recommend Black Rock Villas! Wonderful to see Michelle and Andy again who were fantastic hosts. The improvements made to this property in the last year can not help but add to its popularity. The lunchtime cafe has a great atmosphere, views and the food is spectacular with entertainment on Sunday afternoons. Secluded, private villas set in lovely gardens... More
