Our cottage had location, location, location and so tranquil. None of that resort hype although close to the hype if you needed it. I would certainly recommend Gwen's cottage to others. No TV......just the sounds of the waves and water lapping at your doorstep. Lovely chats each morning with Joe Joe the groundsman. Internet available although I found it easier... More

If you are looking for self contained affordable accomodation, this is it. My daughter and I stayed here for 10 days late July 2016 and will definitely be back. The cottages have every thing you need, and although a little tired, when you are out and about most days or sitting on the deck looking at the view it really... More

This cottage was quaint and and everything we needed. It was a large room with kitchen queen bed (very comfortable) and kitchenette. The aspect is perfect with sweeping views of the lagoon.

How wonderful to arrive travel weary and feast your eyes on that view ! Accommodation albeit basic offers excellent value on Rarotonga .

This is a great place. Peaceful, private and in an excellent location. I had booked the garden studio, but discovered that it wasn't really what I needed for this holiday. Was very grateful to Gwen for being flexible and getting me into one of the cottages. Think well loved, perfectly clean Kiwi bach with everything you need and a wow... More

Had another fantastic stay with Gwen and little Boy and Zoe. Be prepared for a self service stay so no new linen etc or servicing of the room but the privacy more than makes up for this so just take your own ... we stayed in the Pole house, and last time in one of the Bungalows, they are right...

We booked here following TA reviews and a lot of research into locations. We were not disappointed. Gwen had arranged for us to be picked up at the airport and the driver opened up the cottage for us. It's a WOW view that cannot fail to make up for any small deficiency. Gwen was there, in fact, and came down... More
