“Gorgeous place, highly recommended - thanks Kelvin.”
Matangi Moana is a spacious, well-equipped and well-designed house, with a beautiful view and convenient location for the town and beaches of Rarotonga. Kelvin (the owner) is extremely helpful, and was very flexible with us on our arrival and departure times which we really appreciated. The house is very reasonably priced too. It's a great base for a holiday (or even a work trip like mine). I would highly recommend it. Thanks heaps Kelvin, and hope to see you again soon.
Response from the owner Thanks for staying with us, and so glad you loved our house!
“Everything you need”
I greatly enjoyed my stay at Matangi Moana. The house is clean and I love the natural light. The sunrises are stunning and the owners are very nice and accommodating. I would definitely stay here again.
Response from the owner So glad you enjoyed it! Next time time your stay for a full moon, they are also magnificent to see rising over the ocean!
Really enjoyed our stay here. Clean, neat and right on beach. Wish I was there now! Fun little store called Tex mart right near house. Get a chocolate donut and then listen to the waves crash! Best vacation ever and spent at a wonderful place!
Response from the owner Thanks Shane, so glad you enjoyed your stay. The rain came down just after you left, so someone was looking after you!
“Exactly what we were looking for!”
My husband and I spent a very relaxing 5 nights at this beautiful home. Loved the front and back decks, and especially the little gazebo near the beach. Well appointed kitchen (and thank you Kelvin for stocking us up on necessities before we arrived on a Sunday!), excellent shower and comfortable bed. What else did we need?! Well, a truck once, and Kelvin kindly offered us the use of his. We didn't see a single mosquito despite bringing lots of repellant! There was always a nice breeze and we slept really well. We had a scooter for transport and there are lots of nearby shops for anything we ever needed. Thank you too for taking us along on your family hike to The Needle, Kelvin, we enjoyed it so much we went twice more on our own!
Response from the owner Thanks for the kind words Nancy. We are so glad you enjoyed our house. And we really enjoyed our trek to the needle with you guys as well.
Hi Kelvin & Ana...We had a wonderful experience at the Matangi Moana Ocean Breeze Villa. Couldn't have asked for a more better host. The house was great for the 10 days we stayed there, my children loved it! It was very convenient for our family, especially with the Tex Mart just outside the house, whenever we needed anything for the home. Waking up to the ocean outside the house was something we still think of since we came back to australia. The deck was amazing especailly during the evening! Overall it was a fantasic experience, since it was my children's first time to the Cook Island, the house was just perfect! Anyone wanting to stay there, go for it! The best part: the view from the back of the house breathtaking & the coconut tress! Thanks very much Kevlin & Ana Regards Kennie Tutai & Family.
Response from the owner Thanks so much Kennie for the review. And also for leaving the house so clean and tidy! It was a plasure having you and the family, and glad the kids enjoyed their first trip to Rarotonga. Ana and I have been staying in the studio ourselves these past few days, as we are moving house and needed a peaceful spot to relax while that was hapenning. And it has been just perfect for that! All the best, Ana and Kelvin
“Great spot, highly recommended”
Kelvin and his wife anna were both very accommodating. Free transfers to and from the airport were a huge bonus, and the house was fantastic. The Beach front deck was great, and the house being two stories with self-contained accommodation downstairs suited us for six people with a baby. The location was half way between town and Muri beach, but the buses were easy to catch when needed, or the provided bikes were a short ride to anything. Kelvin was fantastic with communication and was on hand for any help or advice, including providing snorkelling equipment and advice about what to do and see on the island. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this holiday home.
“Great value, great location, great views...all in one place”
Whether you need a place short or long term, Kelvin and ana's 2 bedroom (upstairs and 1 bedroom downstairs) house on the beach in Matavera, just 5 km from avarua could be for you. Being two-storey you get great views out to sea - to sit on the deck having plucked a pawpaw from a tree in their garden for breakfast as waves crash in is truly fabulous. And if its too windy or you want views of the mountains (perhaps the mist whisping around them as they were one day that I stayed) its also pretty magical. For the fit you can ride a bike into town, otherwise there is a regular bus. There's a wee store out front for the basics. The house is only 4 years old and has all mod cons - phone, solar heating for water, kitchen appliances and a bed so comfy that I slept for 9 hours - no local chickens/dogs woke me! Recommended? You bet...
We stayed in this beautiful beach house for three months during the winter season. The house is very pleasant, well-furnished and with balconies and terraces on two sides of the house, always giving the opportunity to stay outside without getting too much wind. On many occasions we benefitted from the great hospitality of the landlord. Therefore, we do not hesitate to strongly recommend this house to be your first choice of accommodation.
Response from the owner Thanks for the kind words! Look forward to seeing you guys next time you want to escape the cold!!
