I stayed here for 6 weeks with my husband in January-Feb of this year and I can't wait to go back soon. The room we stayed in, one of the villas, was absolutely perfect and a 5 star quality room. Very clean, very modern, and I loved having our own kitchen and laundry; nothing like clean, fresh clothes whenever you need them! Charlie and Mary were so lovely and so willing to show us the best of Rarotonga. I cannot rave enough about this place, it's absolutely perfect; secluded, 5 minutes from the beach and the stunning mountain views are worth a million dollars. I loved my bike ride each morning around the back roads of Rarotonga, and Te Akapuao is in the perfect location to see the real, authentic people and places of Rarotonga. The swimming pool was literally on our doorstep, and having our meals on the beautiful patio was just so relaxing. Amazing! 10 out of 10 for sure.
