“Hospitality at its best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2011

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.

Thank you for your kindness Lucia. We loved hosting you and your husband to our property, and hear you may be visiting us next year- we're blocking out your villa for you! Lucia was visited daily by the local chickens- might have something to do with her feeding them- hahahaha. Lucia and her husband included a visit to Aitutaki during their stay- a must/should do - something to consider when you're planning a visit to the Cook islands.
Kia manuia.

We had a great time at Mary and Charlies Studio Villas. It is a fantastic place, newly built, very clean and very comfortable (everything you need is available in the Villas), we felt like home immediately. Not only the setting (beautiful garden and pool) but also the hospitality of Charlie and Mary made our holiday very special. They even helped us organizing many things. To us it didn't matter at all that the studios are hillside and not directly on the beach, as the family beach is just a 5 minute walk. We would definitely come back to this place next time when we are on Rarotonga.

Roman and his family were our first guests. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience of hosting them, and despite their first week being very windy and wet, they were happy to enjoy and explore Rarotonga at a very relaxed pace. They happily shared the property with a couple of Australia, and i believe visited them enroute back to Europe.Thank you Roman for your visit to our islands. Kia Manuia
