I'm reluctant to write this review as I don't want too many people of know of this piece of paradise! I challenge you to find a more perfect location. We travelled as 2 families with young children and were not disappointed. The proximity of the water was amazing and the ability to snorkel when the tide was high and explore for creatures when the tide was out provided great contrast. Our hosts were amazing - delivering a fishing line for our youngest when they saw he had made his own pretend one - to his delight he caught a fish! Don pointed us in the right direction for fresh tuna which was to die for.
We are heading back again this year - and think this will become a regular holiday spot for us. Truly amazing......

Room Tip: If needing 2 Villas book Villa 1 & 2

We spent 5 nights here and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The villas are very well equipped. The fruit basket and delivery of fresh tuna was greatly appreciated. But the best part was the beach - lovely for swimming and snorkelling right outside the villa, and very quiet. We would definitely recommend staying here again.

There are three beach villas and one beachhouse which is right behind that villas in a beautiful garden. We stayed some days in that house and must say, this was the best accomodation on our world trip in the first 6 month! It is 25 m to the beautiful sandy and quiet beach, kajaks are for free, also the BBQ. The house is more than spacious and perfectly equipped, you won´t miss a thing. The owners, May and Don, are very friendly and helpfull and make everything possible to enjoy your stay. We were very sad that we booked our next flights and there was no chance to stay longer... If you want to contact: Raro 22919.

An excellant villa and great beach location. The beach is sandy and very quiet. The villa is very comfortable and Don and May are excellant hosts. Definitely would stay here again when we decide to come back to Rarotonga. We arrived from Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada and were amazed of the beautiful island, people and location.

Our stay in Rarotonga was truly heaven on earth and was made extra special by staying at White Sands. This was truly our home away from home. The location is perfect and we think, the best location on the island. The house was well equipped and we were not wanting for anything (except maybe calmer seas for fishing). However, Don was so generous, he dropped off fish from his fishing trip, knowing we had been skunked! The people are the most friendly we have ever met, on all of our travels!! The snorkelling was fantastic and only steps away. Great BBQ facilities made it so great we hardly went out for dinner which is so not like us. The bus stops right out front making it easy for getting around. You can walk to a couple of great restaurants too. Thank you for sharing paradise with us Don and Mae we loved your spot and look forward to a return visit!

Room Tip: No such thing as a bad cottage they are all the same. Listen to the owners when they tell you to lock the door. The Grinch who stole Christmas paid us a visit Christmas Eve. We left the sliding door open and closed the wooden shutters. They snuck in and took a few things. Even after the break in we continued to leave the door open however, we balanced a chair against the shutters to make sure a lot of noise would be made if anyone wanted to pay us a visit. The people are really very nice. Don't let our stupidity stop you from staying here. It is a great spot.
