Set in wonderful gardens the location offers peace and quiet but within walking distance of the beach.Each unit offers you all you need right down to salt and pepper and drinking water an out side shower is great to romove sand and salt from the beach.James and Vanessa being locals know what to do when and where and with there contacts you get the real deal can't wait to go back

We had an amazing five night stay at JJs Retreat and would highly te comment it for your next holiday in Rarotonga.

It is the perfect place to hideaway and relax but also super close to the beach and the islands attractions.

The villas are gorgeous - modern and new with everything you need - a great kitchen, nice new bathroom and shower and very importantly a comfy bed. What I love about the villa is the real Polynesian feel to it. You have your own deck to relax on with loungers overlooking their gorgeous landscaped gardens. There has been a lot of though put into this property with a lot of the furniture handmade by the owner.

James and Vanessa are the ideal hosts. Very knowledgable of the island and super friendly but also give you the space and privacy to have a relaxing break!

Can't wait to stay again in our next visit :)
