Avarua District Vacation Rentals

Just booked in Avarua District

We are living on the same property, so we are always there to help you out. You can contact us when you need assistance or would just like to have a little chat. I've been living on the island for over 40 years and tell you a lot about how it was in the older days. You’ll love my place because of the outdoors space, the people, the ambiance, its tranquility and it's flowers. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travellers.
The bungalows are placed in a lush tropical garden with a lot of flowers and fruit to explore. Depending on the season you are welcome to try mango, pawpaw, passion fruit, lemon or what ever else you might find.
We are outside town in a rural area right in the shade of the Rarotongan mountains. Our neighbors are local farmers or families. The area is safe and very good for walks or bike rides.
  • Ingrid is a lovely lady. She knows a lot about the island and will pick you up from the airport anytime (fees apply). Good place for a short stay when changing islands.

  • We've stayed 2 nights and we were really satisfied. Ingrid is kind and friendly person, helped us with everything and right after our arrival she showed us the whole city. Thank you Ingrid!

    Adam2017-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Ingrids during our 2 day layover in Rarotonga. The airport transfer was very helpful and the location of the bungalows is convenient. Everything was clean and we had everything we needed.

    Michelle2017-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean apartment (apart from ants on work surfaces). Beautiful location with easy walking distance to the town! Would highly recommend!

    Lauren 2017-06-25T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and lovely host. Very clean accommodation.

    Steve2017-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Ingrid was such a lovely host. We landed at 440am and our accomodation on the other side of the island wasn't until 2pm so we booked a room with Ingrid just for some rest. She picked us up from the airport right on time, gave us a quick tour around the town (a few mins from her place) before we laid down to rest. A lift from the airport is $10 PP, perfect for us as nothing is happening at 440am. She's set up in a quiet little area, bring ear plugs if you're not a fan of the rooster mating call. We were too exhausted to notice.

  • Atupa Orchid Studios were nice and simple. They're a good choice if you're on a budget and don't need anything extra. The rooms were cool in the hot weather and the units are close to the main town. The only issue we had was that the beds were uncomfortable and the furnishings were dated.

    Shannyn2017-06-10T00:00:00Z
  • Ingrid is very hospitable, and collected me form the airport and included a small conducted tour, in the dark.

  • Celestine and Petero were warm and friendly hosts, they made us feel very welcome. The place was very much as described, cute and cozy and close to what you need. Renting bikes was the way to go!

    Ben2015-06-03T00:00:00Z
  • The property exactly as describe. The location was perfect and very quiet. The hosts were very gracious.

    Jeremy2017-06-12T00:00:00Z
  • What a lovely stay I had in this wonderful cottage :) The place is exactly as it shows on the pictures! I felt really welcomed by Petero when I arrived and met Celestine a little later. They made sure everything I needed, was there. A fully equipped kitchen, towels, information on things to do and more... It was great staying on the backroad of the island with the beautiful lush green surroundings and really experiencing authentic Rarotonga vibes! Furthermore it's really easy getting around the island and from Celestine's and Petero's place it's easy to get to town or the beach. A bus stop is right across the street, options to rent a car, scooter or bicycle are about a 10 minute walk from their place and great snorkeling is close by! So grateful for yet another wonderful stay, for the warm welcome and for connecting to this great island and to you beautiful souls, Celestine and Petero! Meitaki ma'ata! Much love until we meet again :)

    Helene2016-06-04T00:00:00Z
  • Brilliant, thanks!

    Nicole2017-07-19T00:00:00Z
  • Celestine & Petro are great hosts. I called their studio "My jungle retreat". It's a lovely place and the location is amazing.

    Angelica2015-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • Staying in Celestine and Petero's place was a pleasant experience :) The location is private and there's everything you need in the house, even an ice bucket to pop a nice bottle of wine and feel classy. They have a lovely family and provide awesome advice on things to do and places to go on the island. Can't leave out, Lucky and buddy (their two dogs) made us feel extremely welcome as well. Absolutely recommended.

    Zi2016-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • The place was awesome, handy location, very close to rental car company, and very nice restaurants. Petero runs a taxi company too, so he pick up us from and to airport for and extra fee. Really friendly family, and perfect spot to spend a week in Raro. Thanks Guys!

    My place is close to the airport, the town center, parks, and has great views of the garden and the ocean in the distance. You’ll love my place because it is modern, clean and cosy. My place is great for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids). Some of the islands best beaches are a short distance away. Check in time is 3pm and check out is @ 11am.
    The unit is open plan and very private. It is situated on the ground level of our 2 story house. There is a nice deck outside the front door which looks onto our lawn and garden and you can also see the ocean in the distance. There is a sun lounger to use and chairs to relax on. The kitchen has a new fridge freezer, Jug, toaster, microwave and hot plate with pots and pans for cooking meals. The bed is comfortable and has side tables and lamp. There is a pedestal fan to keep you cool too. There is a two seater couch to sit on and we can provide a fold out bed on request for extra people. The bathroom is modern and clean with a rain shower head. The floor is tiled with soft rugs. On Sunday there is a neighbor who makes fresh doughnuts starting at 7 am and next to the doughnut shop we also have a neighbor who makes fresh ika mata (raw fish - tuna with coconut cream) and sashimi. A must try!
    Our neighborhood is very quiet. From the top story there is a great view of the ocean. There are the odd local chicken and rooster that pass by our house.
  • Nick and Linda's place was the perfect way to start our Cook Islands experience! Their place is beautiful and exactly the way it's advertised. Great views from the upper deck but equally as good from your own deck while relaxing on the deck chairs with a glass of wine. Beautiful young family would definitely come back and stay! Extremely helpful and knowledgable.

    Brad2017-05-30T00:00:00Z
  • Staying with Nick and his wonderful family was one of the best decisions I made on my trip. The space was as described and impeccably clean when I arrived. The views were even better than the pictures show. The hospitality made me feel at home and a part of the family. If you come to the Cook Islands, you've gotta stay here!

    Stevie2017-05-26T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful flat, totally furnished with all you need to stay comfortable. Is very near to city center (around 20 minutes by walk) and Nicholas and his family are very nice and helpful.

    Alexandre2017-04-14T00:00:00Z
  • Nick and Linda are lovely hosts, this place is clean and a convenient location. Beautiful home, very accommodating and helpful hosts with the most adorable children. Best Air Bnb on the island, highly recommended. Thank you both!

    Mia2017-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Our host Nicholas has been invaluable to our stay on the island . We were collected from the airport , told when the markets would happen , steered us in the right direction for scooter rental and an interaction that far exceeded our expectations .We feel that this accommodation is a gem of a place against a beautiful forest and away from the noise of the beaches and road . The family are happy and respect your privacy and make you feel at home with their relaxed attitude . The apartment is new and clean, bathroom is in excellent condition , filtered water is provided on arrival , little extras are provided as surprises and laundry offered . We honestly do not think that we could have found anything else on the island that could match this little hide away .

    jessica2017-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation was great. Very clean. I would recommend to anyone.

    Brandon2017-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • I have stayed in a variety of Airbnb rentals in several countries, and Nick's place is probably the best I've experienced so far. It was immaculately clean and incredibly comfortable. It was exactly as described; perfect for a solo traveler like me, but also good for couples. It's located very near the airport and about a 20 minute walk to town (much less if you take a bike or scooter, of course). The location is beautiful... calm and quiet, surrounded by trees, with a little deck. What made the experience most remarkable, though, was Nick and his family. They were all SO welcoming and kind. Nick offered pick-up and drop-offs, and checked in regularly to make sure I had everything I needed. He offered tips and printed materials (maps, brochures, etc.), which helped me decide what to do and where to go on the island. I really can't say enough about what great hosts Nick and his family are. I would recommend this property in a heartbeat, and I wouldn't hesitate for a second to stay here again. Thank you, Nick and family; you made my first vacation in Rarotonga truly memorable!

    Jason2017-09-30T00:00:00Z

  • Property is very much as described with great views from all rooms. Large and spacious it provided our group of five people with a great alternative to otherwise needing three hotel rooms. Only a few minutes for supplies. Really enjoyable pool area - with the great weather we were really able to relax and chill for the ten days of our holiday. Ryan was an excellent host and the whole process of staying in Rarotonga was very straight forward. Many thanks. David

    Our home is is surrounded by flowers and fruit trees, enjoy your local experience
    Our home is close to the airport and close to town and the beaches
  • Aunty Kana is a great host .... very friendly and approachable. Her place is big and in a very great spot with a great gardening all round. The pictures on the ad do little justice to her lovely house. I didn't have any issues with the house being close to the Airport and the flight noise was very minimalist. I would recommend Aunty Kana's place, city is a 10 min drive on a bike and 20-25 mins by walk. Very spacious and relaxing environment, i would definitely stay with Aunty Kana on my next visit.

  • Fantastic location and great hosts. Property look west (sunsets) and not the windy side of the island. The accommodation is compact but the deck is large and the BBQ is great. Very comfortable bed and great shower. Poor TV reception but a large number of digital films available. Bus service is good but hours are limited. As a base to explore the island its great. Need a bike or car to easily access the shops. Swimming is a less than five minutes walk away.

    Geoff2017-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • A great spot for single traveller or a couple. Brand new, sparkling clean, great deck with a wonderful outdoor kitchen, perfect position to watch whales and sea, secure and well-priced. A wander down the drive to Black Rock with good swimming either side. Close to airport and right on bus route (plenty of parking too). Definitely lunch at Tuoro Cafe, best food on Island. Andy and Michelle are considerate, generous hosts. Robin

    Robin 2017-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • This is a magical find , tucked in the trees and completely private and separate from anyone else with views of the ocean and a emerald green and turquoise blue rock pool to swim . Its a rare chance to experience a place so separate from everyone else on the island , close to airport , restaurants , shops and beautiful swimming beaches . We highly recommend this space to couples who wish to explore the Rarotoinga beach living away from the crowds . We felt like we belonged and owned the experience that we decided to extend our stay .

    Emily's at Panama is close to town, shops and services and the Saturday market. The local bus runs past the gate every half hour. Nightlife is a 5 minute drive or a leisurely 15 - 20 minute walk away. It takes 5 minutes by car to get to the airport. You’ll love Emily's because of its atmosphere and location. We offer a unique opportunity to experience island life while staying in a character Rarotongan home. Emily's at Panama is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travellers.
    The apartment occupies the front corner of the house. The windows are mosquito screened for your comfort, and a fan is available for cooling in warmer weather. The bedroom contains a TV/DVD player and a built-in safe for your valuable items, as well as a queen bed and single bed. Although we welcome children of all ages, please be aware that we do not have cots available for infants. The ensuite bathroom has a shower and toilet. There is a fully equipped kitchen with gas hob and electric oven, microwave, and refrigerator/freezer. The apartment has its own private verandah. The apartment is serviced before you arrive, and twice weekly for stays of longer than 7 days. Additional servicing is available on request at an extra charge of $20.00 each service. All linen is supplied and shared laundry facilities are available for your convenience.
    Emily's is conveniently situated between the airport and the main town of Avarua. The supermarket is 5 minutes walk up the road and just a couple of minutes further along is the harbour of Avatiu with its marina, home to game fishing tour operators. Another 10 minutes brings us to the Saturday morning Punanga Nui Market, the weekly meeting place for locals and visitors alike, where food, produce, local crafts and good coffee can be purchased. The Catholic Cathedral, further along the Ara Tapu, brings us to the start of the commercial centre of Avarua with its range of craft and souvenir shops, banks, telephone and internet services, post office, Government departments and Court house, as well as various cafes, restaurants, and local night spots.
  • We could not recommend Emily's more highly. My friend Kirsten and I were in Raro for 5 weeks and had the most incredible time in this lovely flat. It's very spacious with a delightful outdoor veranda with a table and seating area overlooking the garden. The kitchen is well equiped and the hosts are more than happy to provide anything that's missing. Bedroom is very nice too and there's a great collection of DVDs and books, as well as a working tv, which is quite rare in most of the cheaper accommodation options. The flat also gets cleaned twice a week which is wonderful! It's also ideally located, a short walk to the biggest supermarket and 10 mins on foot into town. This said however, the thing that makes Emily's so special is how unbelievably welcoming Emily and her daughter Elizabeth are. Thanks so much for making our stay in the Cooks.

    Ari2017-05-20T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely peaceful stay at Emilys. A very nice property. From the moment we arrived, Chelsea and I were warmly welcomed, and we felt right at home. We enjoyed a very happy comfortable stay. Emonas hospitality was above and beyond. Chelsea and I were unable to fly out on our planned flight at the end of our trip. Emona came and picked us up from the airport and let us stay an extra 2 nights . She also took us into Town to make sure we could fix our flight booking, and invited us over for afternoon tea with her and her lovely Mother. At the end of our stay Emona took us to the airport. We were so grateful for her extra care.

    Mason2017-01-15T00:00:00Z

    Lucy2017-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • I had a great time staying here. Emona, Elizabeth and Emily were very welcoming. It was a work trip and the location was ideal for me, quiet and comfortable, heaps of space, lovely garden and verandah, close to the supermarket and town. A bike, rented from 'Ride Rarotonga' at the end of the driveway, was great for getting around. It's close to the airport runway and the planes were very loud, but there are only a few each day.

    Simon2017-08-17T00:00:00Z

  • To stay at Emily´s was the best choice. Emily and her daughters Emona and Elizabeth will do everything to make your stay comfortable, warm and special. The apartment is very clean and nice, you will have everything you need. Its a 5 minutes walk to the supermarket and also the busstaion that takes you around the Island. You will also love the big garden with all the beautiful trees, flowers and the yummy fruits. Thank you for showing us the island. It was so interesting to hear about the history of your family and your country. I can highly recommed staying there and i would love to come back one day. :)

Our hosts were FANTASTIC - so friendly and helpful. The facilities were new, modern, comfortable and clean. We would definitely stay again with our families.

    Adam2015-04-05T00:00:00Z
  • Rarotonga Villas is definitely a place we would stay at again and recommend to anyone travelling to Rarotonga!! Host Jo from my very first enquiry email was absolutely amazing and so helpful with everything we needed and more. Her prompt responses and detailed information helped us especially being our first visit to Rarotonga. Photos of villa does not justify how beautiful and breathe taking it really was. The location was perfect, the villa itself was stunning.. The fact we pretty much had our own private beach was perfect! Phil was very helpful making our stay so enjoyable and one to remember.. He made us feel right at home and safe with where we were staying. Everything we needed and wanted was there for us.. If we weren't at a family event we would honestly not leave our villa and enjoy every second of being there..that's just how amazing everything was. Thankyou Jo and Phil for everything you both done making our first trip to Rarotonga a memorable one and we wouldn't want to stay anywhere else but your stunning villas. Our families that visited wished they had stayed at the same villas.

    Sitoe2015-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • Phillip was waiting to welcome me when my flight landed and promptly took me to the Villas and got me settled in. He explained everything quickly and made me feel right at home, the perfect start to a beautiful week in Rarotonga. The location was very convenient as I was traveling for work and wanted quick access to town as well as a beach setting to go "home" to. The unit I stayed in was brand new, very roomy and comfortable. Yes, the Villas are very close to the airport, and you definitely hear the planes when they take off, but I didn't find it a big negative. (I'd rather find a way to muzzle the roosters that are everywhere on the island and don't seem to have gotten the memo about no crowing at night!) My friends were staying in a resort a mile or so away and they had roosters at their place as well. Just got to "go with it" and see it as part of the Raro experience.

  • We had a wonderful stay for nearly a month at Jessie's place. It was a lovely home with a great atmosphere, and had plenty of room for the four of us. It had everything inside that you could possibly need in a house, and the pool was a lifesaver on the hot days. Jessie was the perfect host and replied quickly to any questions we had. Thank you so much Jessie, this house really made our time in Rarotonga special and I would highly recommend it to future travellers.

  • House and host both fantastic, great communication and facilities. We really enjoyed our 3 week stay in La Masion de Te Ariki, the house had everything that was required and more. The only thing missing was a mop! So I felt a little bad not being able to give it a mop before leaving! Sorry!

    Natalie2016-03-26T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time staying here at La Masion de Te Ariki. The house is clean, organised, and well equipped--the rooms are spacious and comfortable. Would definitely stay here again. Highly recommended!

  • Fantastic home in a lovely private setting. The pool is superb for cooling off. The house is spacious and well laid out. Jessie supplies every amenity possible. Our stay was fabulous and we can't wait to come back.

  • The house was very nice and clean with a great view of the ocean! Close enough to town to be easily accessible but away from the hustle and bustle as well as the barking of dogs prevalent throughout the town. They also provided us with clean drinking water so we didn't have to boil our own or purchase bottled water. We had a wonderful time and the complimentary fruit was a welcome bonus!

  • A surprise surfing trip for my Son-in-law as a 30th birthday present. He loved your home, and felt is represented excellent value for money. They had fantastic surf conditions and the location of the home was perfect to access the best surf breaks.

    Barbara2016-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful home, perfect for a family or a group of friends. Facilities were excellent, and the host, Jessie, kindly arranged transport for us to the house. A wonderful space to relax for a couple of days before my grandfather and I returned to cold NZ. Meitaki Jessie!

    Welcome to TuiTui House, we know you'll have a fabulous time in Rarotonga, kicking back, chilling with the "locals" and having the time of your life. Our spacious 2 bedroom home comes with a big back yard, long deck overlooking Rarotonga's International Airport, a local convenience store nearby and downtown Avarua a few minutes away. There are a number of family friendly activities to do, great restaurants & cafes to enjoy. Let "island life" take you over.
    We have on offer a beautiful spacious 2 bedroom home. Very family friendly with a big yard and space to spread out and enjoy. The land is owned by a descendent of the Tinomana (Chief) of Arorangi, and is of the royal bloodline (Ariki) of Rarotonga. 
    TuiTui House is a 10 minute drive to downtown Avarua and a half hour to Muri Beach. If you like to walk, the National Stadium is 5 minutes away. On the way you'll pass the famous Turamatuitui Bakery and petrol station. If you go in the opposite direction you'll find Manea Foods, a small convenience store.
  • We stayed at TuiTui house for 7 weeks and found the place wonderful! The pictures do not do justice to this place which was way more spacious than we had hoped for! The garden is huge and would be great for a family, with plenty of room to run around in. The kitchen is very well equipped and the open plan layout of the living area/ kitchen works really well. The best part of the house has to be the deck which overlooks the runway and has a huge gas-burning BBQ which we used most nights. The house would be ideal for 2 couples or a family, with 2 great sized bedrooms and a large shower. Don't worry about the planes, though they are loud at first, there's only a couple of large flights a day. The island is full of amazing beaches and interesting things to do, and the capital is a 20-30mins walk from the house (5 mins by scooter!). The local contact was also very helpful and sorted out everything we asked for. Rarotonga is a wonderful place and the people are really very friendly! I would definitely recommend this house to a friend and would love to one day visit again! Young was also excellent to deal with and responded very quickly, usually within a day.

  • Place was everything I needed for an "off the beaten track"getaway. Very spacious and private. Minimal noise from Airport runway and located close enough to town. Big bonus was the huge wrap around deck with outdoor furniture and BBQ set up. Would stay again. Thank's for having me

    Riki2017-06-16T00:00:00Z
  • Very helpful and accommodating. Good Value for money. Very close to runway but only a few planes take off a day. Not immaculately clean but acceptable. This place whilst lovely is not to the standards of the luxury hotels on the island but is a fraction of the price. Would stay again.

  • Traumhafte Lage direkt am Strand / Lagune zum Schwimmen und Schnorcheln. Schönere Sonnenuntergänge kann man nicht sehen! 2 Bars in je 100 und 200m Entfernung. Durch die direkte Lage am airport manchmal kurzzeitig laut, aber trotzdem sehr empfehlenswert. Küchenausstattung reicht aus, könnte mehr sein. Wir würden es immer wieder nehmen!

    Our house is the creation of Island Shabby chic and very comfortable with all the modern needs for the holiday makers. Plenty of towels and great location for most needs on the Island.
    Island shaby chic very funky and spacious house with great airflow and the comfort to match.
    150 meters to nearest new coffee shop. Big land area - very private house. 50 meters to the beach just across the road. Your back yard has a pawpaw plantation 20 meters from the back door, 200 meters to 24 hour servo and dairy for any groceries you may need for the late arrivals etc. 200 meters to the newest brewery on the Island.
  • Very cool house with everything you need . the hosts where very helpfully and friendly. Very good people. The house is in a handy location. We enjoyed our stay. Great value for money. Thank you so much for all your help

Always came promptly when asked for small things in need,also very flexible for my earlier check in times - given the time frame of a last minute booking. Highly recommend this place to anyone,great renovations to the home-photos hide the fact of how huge&inviting the home actually is! Definitely would stay again for our next family visit on the island Meitaki Ma'ata Minar&Louis!

Magnificant views from the rear of the property. Local to the airport, couldn`t ask for more. Catch Minar in the Saturday Market, she makes "a killer" chocolate brownie. Thanks Minar & Louis.

Hosts super helpful and friendly but also respect your privacy. Nothing is a problem. Lovely garden setting facing the mountains. Walking distance to town and airport. Far away enough from the road but can still hear the ocean waves and birdlife! A great casual vibe. Thanks so much Tracey and Stan.

  • While the place has a few flaws, they are easily overlooked given the fantastic space, location, and value. Any issues/questions are dealt with promptly by the property manager and owners that live 2 doors down. Not only did my mate and I enjoy the stay, but all our hotel-going friends did too as they came over for BBQ and swims in the funky little pool rather than spend time at their accommodation.

  • Straight across the road from the airport so great for a one night stay before an early flight or after a late arrival. This is actually a hotel / restaurant / bar complex that has been renovated. Our room had comfortable beds and good shower. A bit noisy in the evening - the 'Hula Bar' is in the middle of the complex and has live music every night til 11:30pm - we stayed on a Thursday and wasn't too bad but would imagine it can get pretty rowdy with a big crowd. Looked like a great breakfast but we had to head to airport for an early flight.

  • I cannot recommend this place highly enough. We stayed for six weeks & it felt like home. Well equipped. Exactly as advertised & photographed, if not better. Owners were prompt & responsive before & during our stay. Property manager Shannon became like an old friend. There were a million little touches that made us feel like guests instead of renters: high quality furniture & housewares, toiletries & household supplies, constant communication & attention to detail. All for a suspiciously low price. Thank you Ross, Janet, Shannon, & Chase for everything!

  • A nice clean, villa with an excellent design. It had all we needed. Airplanes are coming over pretty close and this is an adventure to see. Sometimes we just had swim while one passed around 3:30 pm, very cool. All the windows have flyscreens and we haven't seen 1 mosquito inside! A kitchen with all you need ( except pepper and salt) and a great place to sit outside. Good fan on the ceiling to keep you cool in the night and shutters to close when it is windy. The voila is build on poles so if anybody walked along, they could not watch inside. Something that made the privacy very good! Great hosts, clean, complete! Recommended!

    This beautiful 2 bedroom holiday house is a new build and is located 5 mins drive from the airport and main township and supermarket. Both rooms have queen beds & a pull out sofa in lounge & separate bathroom & laundry. All rooms have fans.
    Check out is flexible and late check out is no problems at all, You are very close to the airport so it is a short trip and the space you have for you and your family is generous, whilst there are neighbors (including the chickens and pigs and the occasional friendly dog) - the space is open and private. The bonus to this property has bedrooms separated by the bathroom and the laundry is also separate. The porch is large, so you never get the feeling of being cramped or on top on one another. The beaches are far and wide on the island and there is so many you have to explore with our time on the island your cl- oses beach is not swimmable ( we are close to the port), the nearest pristine beach is 5 mins drive. Car/Scooter hire is recommended, even though the island has a bus, we can help/advise on where to book with airport pick up/drop off. Hire is very cheap on the island. $30 for car and $15 for scooter.
    We are close to Cafes, Supermarket, Bars and the Port and of course the world famous Saturday Markets - the first stop tourists make when visiting the Cooks. The Jet blast area for take off is something to experience (for the daredevils) When departing - You can check in at the airport and come back and wait at the house, instead of waiting at the airport for 3 hours after check in.

  • Dione was a great host! Eventhough she was in Australia with her family we never felt alone. The answers were very fast and a friend of her helped when we needed someone. She organized a taxi and helped us getting to the house from the airport and to the hospital the next morning (our workplace for the rest of the month). The house was clean and there were enough towels and sheets for the rest of the month. The rooms and beds were big. Dione helped us the whole time with helpful advices what to do. Thanks to Dione we had a very uncomplicated stay and could enjoy our time on this beautiful Islands.

  • Lovely little bungalow just off the main road. Good size for the 4 of us, with a nice open communal area and 2 double bedrooms. Bathroom was nice although we discovered that the water pressure was bad if water was being used elsewhere e.g. Kitchen sink and shower, and hot water was a rare occasion. Saturday market and the main supermarket (with bus stop) were a short walk away which was very handy. As it is close to the airport you can hear planes taking off and landing throughout the day. Not the best place if you don't like dogs as the neighbours' dogs would come up to the house, but they were completely harmless and friendly! Dione was a great host and always replied to my messages within a few hours.

  • Kia Orana Villas is a real gem, on the back road it is a little walk (15 mins) into town but has a lovely pool and hot tubs which in the winter months was better than a sea view :) We stayed in the one bed which was super clean and plenty large enough for two of us. I loved having the small kitchen too. In the evening with the lights on it was easy to see in but Ross is on the case and purchasing curtains. Shannon, general manager, was there every day with clean towels and a smile, she was very helpful with local knowledge and sorting out any requests. If you want to use the free transfers to hotel resorts just mention the Whale and Wild Life Centre for pick up and drop off. A real find in a small island that feels like a trip back in time with a way of life that many of us have forgotten and yearn for. Kia Orana to everyone who visits :)

    We are only 3Km from Rarotonga Airport and just 5Km from Avarua Township.

If you fancy a round of Golf we are right next door (approx 200m) to the only Golf Course on the Island. Our property is great for Whale watching(even from the pool!) in the Whale season,normally July-November
  • From the time we arrived at the Blackrock Villas right through to when we left, 5days later, we (3 of us) were more than happy with our fabulous hosts, the gorgeous villa and beautiful setting. The first thing we noticed were the pictures on Airbnb were absolutely accurate. The Villa exceeded our expectations with gorgeous beds & bathrooms. The garden setting provided real privacy & the affinity pool was the icing on the cake. We ate at the café & we agree with the locals it's one of the best on the island. We'd definitely stay at Blackrock Villas again. Thanks Michelle & Andy.

  • Michelle and Andy were very lovely to deal with from the beginning of our stay until the end. The cafe has really lovely food and great size portions too. We had everything we needed in the villa and enjoyed our stay.

  • Our welcoming began well before our arrival with good information about what was needed and their arranging a shuttle/cab. When a sequence of flight delays forced us to arrive on the 2am flight they changed arrangement as needed with us comfortably arriving at 3 am to a well lit, clean, and pleasant stay. The next several days we enjoyed snorkeling in the lagoon and swimming in the pool. There are several nice restaurants within a :20 walk and the cooking facilities are great. We have stayed in Rarotonga before so were aware that the Roosters of Rarotonga begin their song at 4am and no difference here (bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper but that goes for anywhere on Rarotonga). The lagoon and beach at Black Rock are much nicer than our stay on Muri Lagoon. The snorkeling is astounding with great fish and coral! The villa itself was very comfortable and if anything is needed Andy and Michelle are right there to help with anything! Their cafe has a nice lunch service and we wish we had time to try it but our days were spent at the beach.
