“The Best House in Rarotonga!”
Reviewed 7 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

person found this review helpful

Stayed here for a few nights at the end of Sept and loved every minute of it! This house is amazing....like something you see in a design magazine. It has everything you could possibly want and need. Location is great, on the hillside, directly opposite the beach which is a one minute walk away, with filtered views of the ocean. This makes it very private and quiet, unlike many of the houses built close to the road and on the ocean front. The house is brand new, only completed earlier this year, so absolutely everything works. It is gob smackingly gorgeous and it is impossible to not say 'wow' when you enter.
Everything has been thought of; huge living space, floor to ceiling windows, designer kitchen with everything you could possibly need, [dishwasher, hob, oven, microwave etc..], full laundry, huge leather sofa, flat screen TV with 100 movies on tap, air con, three very chic bedrooms, wonderful beds, all en suite with beautiful towels, bed linen,and stylishly furnished throughout. The curtains are thick and black so lie-ins are easy to achieve. All the bedrooms open on the pool. There are bean bags loungers which can be placed in the pool or kept on the ample sized deck. The whole house and surroundings are immaculate. Desa and Phil, who own and run the house, have done a brilliant job in building it from scratch with all the building materials brought to the site from NZ. The quality and finish is exceptional. Desa keeps the house extremely neat and clean and is a fantastic host. She is a perfectionist so absolutely everything has been thought of and she is also great company.
We loved our stay at Pacific Palms luxury Villa ,Rarotonga and in the time we were there we didn't see a house of comparable design and style on the whole of the island. If you want a lot of space, privacy, quiet, a great pool, proximity to restaurants and access to the beach, all wrapped up in amazing architecture then this is the place for you. We'll be back for a much longer stay next year!

“Truly Perfect”
Reviewed 30 June 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Wow this place really is everything it says, and more besides!
We have stayed in properties all over the world, and honestly couldn't fault this one.
It is luxurious to the core, spacious, and so comfortable, yet has a real homely feel about it. The details are so well thought out - I must have spent the first 24hrs just taking in the little touches of genius in the design and build.
The inside/outside flow is so clever and makes you feel connected to all parts at once - yet easily closed off to create a sense of privacy. As for the pool - perfect.
The beds were so comfortable I didn’t want to get up in the mornings. The en-suites are a dream, but the walk in robes - I want one of my own! There's more than enough storage which is unusual nowadays.
The kitchen is so fully kitted out there's nothing you could need - absolutely a joy to be in.
The location is perfect too! It's on the better side and has the best beaches on the island within easy walking distance. Complete tranquillity, yet so close to all the must-go-to places.
I'm normally very harsh with my comments - but at this place I cannot fault it, or the wonderful care and attention we got from the manager. Perfection!
We WILL be back!

“Prepare to be amazed”
Reviewed 28 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

No better way to be welcomed after a late night flight than to be shown around your holiday abode by your host, with a complimentary drink in hand. State of the art entertainment system for those nights in with a huge range of movie and music options. Plenty space to dance around indoors or out. Private sound-proofed rooms to hide away when you need that afternoon nap after a walk to the beach for snorkelling or a swim in your private pool. Or float in the pool in your bean bag lounger while someone else sorts the BBQ. No fights over the couch because its big enough for all. Do take Desa and Phil's advice on what to see and where to eat out. You can't fail to find your happy place here.

“WOW! Luxury is right.. simple yet elegant opulence!!!”
Reviewed 2 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

It was bliss staying at Pacific Palms... what a beautiful place, so relaxing and classy, yet with all the comforts of home (and more!) I slept in the end room and woke up to the most glorious view of the pool... I had no idea that the rest of our group were up and getting breakfast in the living space, as you hear nothing from those rooms, they are so well sound-proofed! We had a great night entertaining and loved the selection of movies on offer. And that couch... oh my god we could get a row of people lying down watching movies, it was amazing! Great hosts, thank you for organising my transfer to the airport... and loved the drinkies on arrival, we did need those after long flights!
Highly recommended.. these guys have nailed it.
