“Everything was thought of.”
Reviewed 20 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We had a truly wonderful time at this place (we being three couples, and twins toddlers)- the house, gardens and location totally lived up to our expectations, plus more! We really appreciated all the extra things that were there when we arrived, before we had a chance to go grocery shopping. And the kids were thought of too, with a little soft toy waiting for them in their cots- it made a big difference settling them in. And Anita was just perfect as the manager too. When we can get back to Rarotonga, we will definitely look at Pae Moana as our first choice of place to stay.

“Pae Moana - Beautiful”
Reviewed 9 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We landed in Rarotonga pretty excited about our 6 day escape to the heat. Pae Moana is the cleanest and most well run holiday house you'll find. The complimentary car was great for exploring and the house has been very well thought out. The beach is like a postcard, really. The house manager, Anita, was warm and friendly and obviously took great pride in keeping Pae Moana looking it's very best. We WILL rent Pae Moana again.

“Pae Moana Revisited”
Reviewed 4 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This was our second visit to Pae Moana and was every bit as enjoyable as our first stay there 2 years ago. The plantings and palm trees that frame the property were freshly planted during our first visit, so it was great to see them looking so lush and tropical when we arrived. We made an effort to do different activities this trip, including a game of golf; we've never played on a course with so many shared fairways but it was most enjoyable, as there aren't too many courses that have have such spectacular views from the tee boxes. Our night at the Beats on Betela was a fun time, lovely to hear the music of the island as well as our very own Tiki Taane.We tried a few new restaurants, Coco Putt, Vaiamas, Bamboo Jacks, as well as the usual visit to Trader Jacks and Tamarind House, always a great meal and night out. The Shipwreck Bar, which is only a few doors down from Pae Moana was a great little find and highly recommended for meeting up with friends for a beer or cocktail and enjoying the stunning sunset and view at the end of the day. We loved our stay at Pae Moana and recommend it to everyone wanting a relaxing or as busy as you want to be, holiday escape from the chills of the NZ winter.

“Rarotonga Magic”
Reviewed 25 June 2016 for a stay in April 2016

person found this review helpful

The house is located on the western side of the island which in our view is the best location especially for the sunsets it also gets virtually all day sun and is away from the somewhat touristry Muri Lagoon. The house sits right on the beach and the sea is your swimming pool which abounds with tropical fish making snorkling a real pleasure.
The house is equipped with all the mod cons and comes with sea kyaks,golf clubs and even a couple of bikes.
A great place to relax in.

“Beautiful home in a picture-postcard setting on the beach”
Reviewed 8 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Pae Moana is a beautifully-appointed, modern home on the beach. Our family of five adults enjoyed a special holiday in Rarotonga, staying at Pae Moana. The lawn leads to the beach with Palm trees, white/gold sand and to the blue water of the safe lagoon. Snorkel gear, beach shoes, kayaks, paddle board, hammock, deck with lounge chairs for everyone, and wonderful outside dining with BBQ made this home a holiday in itself. Two bikes made popping down for the paper and ice cream easy. Modern kitchen for cooking/socialising at home. Beds comfortable and water pressure in showers excellent. Easy and clear communication with home owners. Pae Moana is an excellent choice for a relaxed holiday with family and friends. Recommended!

“Excellent Holiday”
Reviewed 15 November 2015 for a stay in May 2015

people found this review helpful

WE stayed at Pae Moana in the first week of May 2015 and had a lovely relaxing holiday in a beautiful holiday home.
Not only did we have a lovely modern home , which was clean and well furnished, but also an almost private beach just a few steps from our door. Weather was superb.
The manager was available when or if we needed her and she also called to see that we were happy with the property.
We could have cooked each night, but chose to eat out at the many lovely restaurants on the island.
However we stayed last year with our Son and family and enjoyed lots of BBQ's with the great facilities available.
A great place for either families or the more mature, like us.
We are hoping that we may be able to return next year, can't wait.
