From our reception at the airport to our wave goodbye, our stay at Te Vakaroa was first class. The accommodation was luxurious, clean, and enchanting in every way. The landscaping is manicured daily and invites one to enter the mood of the South Pacific Islands. Our host and the staff were ALL very accommodating to our every wish. We highly...

We stayed five nights at Te Vakaroa Villas after a week in New Zealand. This was our first trip to the Cook Islands, so we did not know what to expect for lodging. TVV is a clean, upscale property with everything we hoped for: nicely appointed rooms with a beautiful view of the beach and ocean, air conditioning, tv (yes,...

We arrived on a late flight from Australia via New Zealand. We had a wonderful transfer waiting for us when we arrived, complete with beautiful flowers. Taken to the most beautiful accomodation.

We visited in early February 2017 and it was absolutely perfect. Unfortunately the weather wasn't kind however did not stop us enjoying the villa's pool and beach. Lots of dining options to walk to. Staff were unobtrusive and very friendly and helpful. Transfers to and from airport, included car and breakfast every morning made our short break perfect. Included snorkelling...

Kia orana and thank you for taking the time to review our property. Te Vakaroa is aware that the weather can be unsettled sometimes and therefore we have endeavoured to provide large rooms with plenty of indoor/outdoor flow for guests to enjoy the tropical surroundings even when wet. The private transfers take stress away from your trip as we cater...

We celebrated my husband's birthday on this occasion and could not have been more pleased with the accommodation. Everything was as described by our travel consultant and more. This was certainly 5 star. We enjoyed the complimentary kayaks and the rental car. The villas were immaculate, quiet and a joy to spend time in. The infinity pool was a delight...

An amazingly beautiful setting right on the shores of Muri Lagoon. This property is a real credit to Nick Reeves and his friendly staff. The rooms are extremely well appointed, clean and massive.

My family and I stayed in one of the two bedroom villas for 7 nights.

If you are looking for a more private option for your vacation with no kids this is the place for you.
