“The Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2012

What else can we say from being met at the airport thru to the wonderful location this our first holiday to Rarotonga was made special by the friendly couple who took care of us and our every need. The beachfront views had us marvelling every morning we opened the curtains to see the wonderful lagoon colours. getting about was easy when we picked up our rental car and the restaurants and foods varied a little but everywhere we went we believed we got value for money. Iam not usually the sort that likes to comment too much about experiences but our whole holiday was a delight and this property suited us well.

Room Tip: Either of the Villas is very well located both being beachfront.

AMAZING!!! What a way to celebrate a surprise 50th birthday holiday for my husband. From the moment we were greeted by the friendly smile of Marisha at the airport I just knew that this was going to be an amazing holiday. When we arrived at Rendezvous Villas everything from the private pool through to the deck area over looking lagoon was immaculately clean and beautifully decorated and presented. Laundry and kitchen were fully equipped. In the fridge a bowl overflowing with delicious chilled local fruits and other necessities to start our stay off with. The bathroom is lovely and king size bed and room comfortable and perfect. Attention to every detail and more was laid out to ensure that we literally just walked in and this was our piece of luxury paradise to enjoy. Absolutely beachfront from the bottom step of the deck.. just 20 amazing steps across the beautiful sands to dip our toes into the delightful lapping cooling waters of the sea. Sunrises are so beautiful. Location was great if we wanted to be around a little hub of people a 5 minute drive (if that) is all it took. Chad and Marisha are amazing hosts so informative helpful and friendly and genuinely love what they do and enjoyed seeing/hearing how much fun we were having. What and amazingly beautiful relaxing holiday we had and we will be back. Thank you so much for this wonderful Villa!!!

What a fantastic way to celebrate our 50th birthdays. This place is paradise. I will never forget that feeling when Chad opened the gate to our own private pool surrounded by tropical landscape. Just when you think it couldnt get any better than you enter the luxurious villa --my island luxury. I thought i was going to burst i was so excited. The villa is decorated too suit this paradise. I loved that you walk straight out of the villa and you are snorkelling on the reef. Chad and Marisha 10/10 - they were so obliging helpful informative. Fantastic hosts.
This place is special and we will have memories that will last a lifetime ----

I recently stayed at Rendezvous Villas on Rarotonga. We had a wonderful stay and I highly recommend this property! The rooms are huge, clean and have everything you need, very comfortable kind size beds, deluxe amenities, fully stocked kitchen with appliances and laundry facilities. Loved the private plunge pools and the beachfront access right off the front deck.
The management were fantastic, answered any questions we had regarding sightseeing or shopping. I cant say enough about this wonderful property!

My wife and I visited Rarotonga this past Xmas and had such a relaxing and enjoyable time that I felt i needed to share it with others ------ this is not my normal style to write comments but when your experience go beyond what you expect for the price, then I guess its nice to share them.The villa at Rendezvous was all we could wish for, clean, everything in its right place, quite, peaceful and with a lovely private pool. The service was great. Dining out was easy since we arranged a small rental car with plenty of choices of restaurants. The sad part was having to leave anyway our hosts really looked after us and delivery to the airport was timely and efficient.

I must say I enjoy returning to Rarotonga and on the last trip we stayed at the Villas for a few days that gave us everything we were looking for. A peaceful spacious private Villa with steps to the white sand beach and a lovely plunge pool within the courtyard. Chad and his wife looked after us and serviced the Villa as regularly as we wanted plus provided that extra touch of fresh tropical flowers and fruit. Answers to queries or arranging activities were carried out in good time and we had a 'wonderful smooth' holiday. Rarotonga continues to impress with its cleanliness and great range of restaurants and at the end a nice farewell touch where we arranged a late check out to 6:00pm and were allowed to stay in the Villa until our flight departure.

Room Tip: Both Villas are romantic and private and right on the beach.

It's hard to fault the location when you pull back the curtains in the morning and all you can see is beautiful blue water. The interior is also really nice, spacious and well laid out.

It has a great front deck with a nice little beach out the front however the problem was the wind blew directly onshore for the entire duration of our stay, so we didn’t use this deck once. I have since learnt that the trade winds blow from the South East throughout July & August (directly onshore at Rendezvous) & therefore we spent much of our time driving to the other side of the island which was sheltered. The back deck was also sheltered which is where we spent a lot of time. At this time of year, I don’t think I would recommend the Villas. Last time we visited Muri Beach it was in April and we had no problems with wind.

My main gripe however revolved around the booking system. Clearly reading other reviews, there is an issue with the Rendezvous Villas booking system. We booked for 5 nights + a late check out for which we paid additional for. A day before checkout we received 3 phone calls telling us that we had made a mistake with our booking and there were people due to arrive before we left. We were blamed for the stuff up and when I explained the late checkout had been arranged via email (including being paid for and flight detail provided), the response was that they were not privy to this information, despite us receiving confirmation from the reservations manager. In the end it didn’t adversely affect us but did leave a bit of a sour taste.

Despite these minor inconveniences, we still really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it, albeit with a few "howevers…”
