This family run villa is nice and quiet, off the street and just steps from the beach, close to the airport and the town. Friendly and helpful owners. A nice home base from where to explore this small island. Bring your snorkeling gear or borrow a set and do a swim at one of the spots marked on the map....

Unfortunately, we weren't able to be accommodated on our last night and then found it very difficult to find accommodation for just 1 night. Most hotels require at least 3 nights. So you can imagine that we were...

Very friendly place to stay, Roselle and Eric were very accommodating and had thought of everything you would need be including buckets and spades for the kids. The rooms were a good size and very tidy. The complimentary breakfast the first day was a nice touch. Thank you, we had a great time.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Cooks Oasis Holiday Villas are located in Arorangi, Rarotonga. We have 8 self catering villas nestled within tropical gardens. Enjoy our fresh water cool-off pool and other great complimentary facilities including snorkelling gear, sun lounges, kayaks and beach towels. We are on the western, sunny and sheltered side of the island where you can watch the fantastic sunsets. The Arorangi district is only 15 minutes to the main Township of Avarua and 10 minutes to the airport. Take less than a minute stroll down the path to the white sand beach and beautiful lagoon. Perfect for sunbathing, relaxing, and watching the whales cruise by (in winter). For some family fun try out our kayaks, or go snorkeling and view the tropical fish. Self-cater or enjoy eating out at one of 6 restaurants in easy walking distance. Our secluded property with its comfortable and stylish pacific rooms combined with our excellent location on the island and excellent service really are a winning combination. We pride ourselves on running a “boutique” look, feel, and service property without the high-end expense. We are family owner operators. Our main focus is to ensure our guests have a great stay at The Cooks Oasis Holiday Villas and enjoy their time in Rarotonga. ... more   less
