We stayed at Te Vakaroa in May of this year. It was outstanding. The villa, the location, the beach... everything was more than amazing. There was nothing more we could have asked for and we can't wait to come back again!

Kia Orana, A Boat could be available for renting but generally only the ‘fishing type’ with no real comfort features. There is really no way that you could live on a boat in our lagoon although day use would be possible. Cheers Des Eggelton Director Of Sales Ph 682 55020 : Fax 682 25594 Te Vakaroa Villas

How do you compare with Rumours? Can you kiteboard from the Villas or do you have to walk?
Kia Orana, Te Vakaroa Villas is central on Muri Beach with kite surfing immediately in front of the property --- simply straight onto the beach from the resort. Rumours location and beach does not allow kite surfing since lagoon is too shallow with a lot of coral. Kia Manuia Des Eggelton Director Of Sales

Kia Orana, Yes all villas are equipped with safes large enough to accept a laptop computer for your safety and security. Our property is fully fenced with combination locks on the gates for your continued security. Kia Manuia Des Eggelton Direct Of Sales.

"The 3 upstairs have 2 bedrooms and the 3 downstairs are one bedroom. They all look out to the pool and the beach beyond."
"view from every unit is outstanding and it is right on the best part of the beach!"
"All rooms have great views and share same proximity to pool and beach"
"Villa # 2 is the pick of the one bedroom villas."
"The downstairs villas meant you could pop in and out of your room and leave your things by the pool, it was so safe and relaxed."
