My partner had always wanted to visit one of the Pacific Islands and Cook Islands is truly gorgeous. Based on TA reviews, we booked Sea Change and chose to spoil ourselves and stayed in one of the beachfront villas - could not get enough of the amazing water views! Beverly and Craig were such wonderful hosts making sure everything was ok, and Christina was great in organising our activities. Nothing was too much trouble. Villa was stunning and just like the photos (while not Sea Change's fault, the only disappointment was, being there in August, the private pool was a bit too chilly to enjoy). The free bikes were so handy to explore the area - particularly going to snorkel at the fruits, as were the kayaks. The beach is beautiful - enough said. Beverly's hints and tips on where to eat and drink were so valuable - we were luckily saw a whale cruising by on sunset while sipping cocktails! Partner went fishing with Brendon and you couldn't wipe the smile off his face for the rest of the trip after catching a wahoo and tuna. Overall, it was a trip of a lifetime to a piece of paradise!
