A wonderful villa (No 1) on the ground floor. Amazing views from the villa, across the small but beautifully maintained garden, over the infinity pool to the beach and lagoon beyond. The distant sound of waves crashing on the reef creates a constant (but fairly quiet) booming sound, which we found quite soporific. The Sails restaurant next door does good food and excellent coffee. If you want to chill out without young children around and have access to all the amenities close by, this is the place. We will definitely be returning. A wonderful week.

An immaculate well fitted out little villa with full-maid service including tropical breakfasts brought to you by genuinely welcoming smiling staff. Gorgeous little garden with infinity pool and sun loungers, overlooking Muri beach and the lagoon beyond.

A wonderful week in paradise!

Room Tip: No children under 12

This is now my 2nd time staying here at Te Vakaroa and is my only choice on the island. I love the feeling of the exclusiveness and only having 5 villas in total. The secure access gives you peace of mind to enjoy. Another nice thing is not having young kids running around. It's a special spot, you can do as much or as little as you like. I love staying here and as always, will be back. If you are worried that it's a little expensive, don't be. It's worth it!

Had five nights here at Te Vakaroa and it was heaven! Although this is accommodation, the decor and furnishings made me feel I was 'at home'. Beautiful beach location and a fantastic view from my one bedroom villa. All the staff were friendly, helpful and I was made so welcome. Will definitely return here and stay longer next time!

Room Tip: The one bedroom villas have direct access to the pool

Website doesn't do it justice - if anyone complains about this place then they obviously can't be pleased. Great service, awesome view, safe, everything at your door step. Excellent pool facilities. A shame the spa was out of service when we were there. Only hiccups were a few broken things in our villa, but they were fixed quickly. Would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Kia Orana,
We at Te Vakaroa Villas are pleased you had an enjoyable time during your stay with us. While we endeavour to have all facilities working for all guests all the time, often this is not possible and we apologise for the Spa being out of commission during your stay. Your thoughtfulness in advising us of a couple of minor damaged items in the Villa was very much appreciated.
Cheers
