Ann's Beach House - right on Rarotonga's best beach

Vaimaanga house

3 bedrooms / 1 bathroom / sleeps 8

“relaxing” the service from the owners and Tony was excellent. The house was beautifully located, next door to an excellent cafe, across ths road from a very well equipped grocery store, selling everything from vegetables, cakes, tinned food, fresh bread etc, meat was a little expensive but otherwise the prices were very comparative with NZ prices. The bus service was great and entertaining, albeit not usually on time, but wasnt a problem for us. We really lived on the beach or lawn area of the house, 10 paces to the water. We were unlucky to have about a dozen dogs across the road who de ided to have a meeting at around midnight and 3 in the morning every night we were there, which went on for quite a while, not a great problem for us 4 adults but did affect our 4yr old baby who woke every night to this. anyhow the house was very adequate for us.

Villa Rarotonga - 2 bedroom holiday home

Arorangi villa

2 bedrooms / 2 bathrooms / sleeps 5

“Amazing piece of paradise” An amazing adventure from the time we arrived til the night we departed. The hosts are beyond amazing and so sweet and accommodating. They always made sure we had fresh sheets and towels. The bungalow was very well equipped with everything we needed and quite comfortable....definitely home away from home atmosphere. No issues other than the roosters but the roosters are everywhere in the Cook Islands so you learn to tune them out. The location of this villa was perfect and close to everything including the airport. Best side of the island and less populated than the busy resort side of the island. Very relaxing destination made perfect by our hosts. You can't go wrong staying here.....I am a travel agent and have traveled a lot and so I have a lot to compare it to. Great price as well. Best vacation ever!!! Thank you for the memories!

AVARO HOUSE - Beachside & Swimming Pool

Matavera house

3 bedrooms / 2 bathrooms / sleeps 8

“Awesome House!” We had a group of 12 so this house was perfect and accommodated us comfortably. Tony was very easy going and made our stay hassle free. We booked out the main house and the cottage. I think we bothered the neighbours a little as we were a bit roudy here and there, but they didnt seem to mind! The view by the pool when you first wake up is just breathtaking... perfect spot to relax before you head out to the beach for snorkelling, paddle boarding etc. We snacked on the coconuts that are abundantly growing in the backyard and many of us enjoyed a morning/afternoon siesta by the pool. Superbrown is just across the road, but to save some money, you're better off heading into town and shopping at the supermarkets. One little thing that did bother us all was the mosquitos! So many! And with no fly screens on the doors or windows, you couldnt enjoy the fresh beach breeze without being attacked. We all agreed that although minor, the mosquitos did dampen the experience a little. Just be aware and do what you can do avoid being attached (standard repellents dont work i.e off!, aeroguard and coils)

Comfortable roomy home, private in a garden setting with stunning views out to the reef. Snorkelling and kayaking on our doorstep and our favourite convenience store across the road. Will be our bolt hole when the NZ winters kick in for sure. Nice warm welcome from the manager, with nothing being a problem.

Pacific Time family villa, 2 or 3 bedrooms

Arorangi house

3 bedrooms / 2 bathrooms / sleeps 8

“Fantastic house for a family and the necessities needed for a relaxing holiday” Pacific time holiday house had everything we needed for a family of four including two kids under 5. We were after a place that was like a home away from home and this is exactly what we got. Gabrielle was informative with information about her home and what we could do in the surrounding areas. For those travelling without kids The Crown which is just down the road has beautiful food, drinks and coffee. We had family also staying on the island so we're lucky enough to have some kid free time Car/Bike rental close to home (within walking distance). We hired a car and a scooter so we could experience the island and the kids loved the convertible cars:). Highly recommend a visit to the beach bedside The Rarotongan (just a quick ride own the road) perfect location for snorkelling. Also recommend a ride to Muri which is where the main attractions are. We loved the scenic drive and the kids did also

About Rarotonga

Surrounded by a ring of flame-colored coral that protects an enduring blue lagoon and white powdery beaches, Rarotonga is a tropical island paradise not far from New Zealand. And, even better, it doesn't have the insane prices of Bora Bora or Tahiti.

For the widest choices of accommodation available on Rarotonga, visit FlipKey.

About Rarotonga

Found in the South Pacific, just 4-hours flying time from New Zealand, Rarotonga is the largest of the Cook Islands.

A small island with big smiles, Rarotonga is just 32 kilometers in circumference and feels like a huge beach resort.

Dominated by towering volcanoes, the majority of the people live and work around the coast and in the main town of Avarua. Cook Islanders consider themselves as being a seafaring people descended from Polynesians who arrived from Tahiti 1,400 years ago.

Discovered by Captain Cook in 1773, it took a further 115 years before the 15 island chain became a British protectorate.

Rarotonga is now a popular vacation destination for New Zealanders looking for a tropical beach vacation. With the Cook Islands using the New Zealand dollar as their currency, vacationing on Rarotonga is much more affordable than other nearby destinations.

What to do

Rent a kayak or a canoe on Muri Beach for under 30 NZD for the day, and explore the tropical fish-packed lagoon by snorkeling around the coral reef on Rarotonga's best beach.

Visit Te Vara Nui Village to learn all about the history of the islanders and take in a dinner dance show that tells stories that have been passed down for generations.

Spend half a day out deep sea, fishing for marlin, sailfish, wahoo, barracuda and tuna. The conditions for catching migratory fish in the waters around Rarotonga are excellent!

Hike two hours through the rainforest to visit Papua Waterfall and swim in the natural pool. For the best experience, try to visit after a heavy rain.

Snorkel over the wreck of the New Zealand steamship Maitai SS. It struck a reef on Christmas Eve 1916 while it was stocked with Model T Fords, and they're still there, too!

Top Rarotonga travel tips

Rather than taking taxis or the island bus, rent a bicycle for your stay on Rarotonga and explore the island at your own pace.

While the resorts all serve excellent food, you can save tons of money eating like a local. Stick to small traditional eateries and you can eat well for 8 NZD. A great place to go for fresh fruit, fish, and seafood is the Punanga Nui Market on the waterfront next to Avarua.

Rarotonga is a Polynesian Island paradise with pristine beaches and clear water that offers more than just fancy resorts and over water bungalows. The people are friendly, the weather is great and Rarotonga rental properties on FlipKey can be afforded by families on a budget.
