Loved the place, right on the beach, our unit was just great and clean.
Lovely host and very helpful, and went out their way to make us feel at home.Dairy shops, cafes, restaurants and kite surfing are within walking distance.

We are 7th time visitors to the Cook Islands and have rented privately owned properties prior, so we are not expecting 4 or 5 star accomodation but unfortunately this did not measure up to photos that are on the website. The location is superb and the view from the balcony is to die for but that is about where it stops. The bungalows are older (which doesnt matter) but they are in serious need of immediate maintenance. When we arrived at the one bedroom bungalow, we noticed a terrible strong sewerage smell in our bathroom, fortunately my husband is a builder and found the seal around the toilet was not right and asked the owner for silicone so he could fix it. The owner told us that other people had mentioned it but they didnt know what the problem was!! There are plumbers on Rarotonga!! The futon in the lounge was covered on both sides with stains all over it, underneath the vanity in the bathroom was black mouldy stuff on the floor and when we stripped the pillow I could not believe the mould on it. The first week of our holiday the owners mothers house which is behind of our bungalow was having building work done on it so the builder arrived at about 8.15am and started whistling, singing and hammering and then the skill saw started, didnt make it an overly relaxing 1st week! Fortunately the 2nd week he was not back. This property has the potential to be one of the best on the island but we would not recommend staying in it until it has had some basic maintenance and cleaning done. There are better vaue for money properties avail so I would suggest you look around. Jeff you are a really nice guy but you will start loosing business if you dont get this done.

Thanks for your comments about declining standards of cleanliness during 2013. These have been addressed by Geoff and Ana who took over Tiana's Beach Villas from Geoff's parents in late 2013. The interiors and exteriors have since had a good clean and general maintenance of facilities. We haven't received any negative comments since and whilst Tiana's remains a budget property we hope the new cleanliness and service standards are more what our guests expect on their holidays ...

Geat bechfront location, couldn't be better placed, price reasonable, but for everthing else.
Kayaks, were looking forward to going kayaking as per the website, but alas no kyaks, when inquired advised to go hire some. Had to clean the shower on arrival, sheets stained, windows that didn't shut, blowing a gale curtains flying around like a flag.
Needs a "makeover" as no way does it come up to the website views, if updated , cleaned up kyaks supplied it would be a great place to stay, but as it is won't come back.

Thanks your feedback. I'm happy to say that Tiana's has been taken over by Geoff and Ana and the place is looking clean and tidy again and all linen has been replaced. We did have a problem with the kayaks for a few weeks when the local distributor ran out of kayak repair kits (the reality of island life!) and previous clients wrecked all kayaks (as well as the precious coral) by paddling out over the coral reef at low tide. Anyway, we now have three good kayaks for guests to use whilst staying at Tianas and hoping guests enjoy them and look after them as well! Thanks.

The location of this property was fantastic - couldn't ask for better. But the place was very run down and definitely needed a decent clean! The pillows mouldy, the towels old, a broken toaster and a microwave that didn't spin around (resulting in our burnt scrambled eggs)! I was most disappointed that the website offered kayaks for guest use, but all four had holes in them and weren't able to be used. Don't offer something on your website you couldn't use! We were told that the water was filtered outside and we could drink it. However.... when we went to fill our bottle two geckos came out of the tap and into the bottle! Needless to say... we didn't drink that water!!

The owner was lovely.. but didn't see him enough to voice my concerns!

Just in a need of a good clean and tidy up!
