“Wonderfull accommodation, very compfortable and clean and very well equipped.”
Reviewed 10 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

The villa is beautiful and very well equipped with everything you need for an easy and relaxing holiday. The pool was lovely and free use of the kayaks was a great addition.
it is very well situated for restaurants and for the night market which does lovely meals as an alternative.
The host Adam was great and very friendly and extremely helpful, unfortunately we didn't meet Sarah, but maybe next time.
I would certainly recommend Taakoka Villa to my family and friends, thank you for a wonderful holiday.

kia orana. thank you for your comments. it was a pleasure to meet you all. our guests enjoy the close proximity to all the things to do in Muri yet we are just far enough away that you can relax in the peace and quiet of our large beach front section. the kayaks are very popular and a great way to explore Taakoka motu (island) in the lagoon right off our private beach area. look forward to seeing you both again in paradise! kia manuia. adam & sarah

“I love this place”

last year we stayed with friends in the Pool villa and then the Garden Villa, this year we stayed in the studio, absolutely perfect for me and hubby. Great space, lovely big shower, comfy bed we won't stay anywhere else, Adam and Sarah have the best places to stay on the Island.

Have an awesome stay at Taakoka,it was just as shown in photos and what a spot, right next to the beach and with your own pool. Great swimming area. Everyone was in the pool as much as the sea, We all really enjoyed jumping in the pool when we got back from the beach. And everyone made full use of the kayaks. We took our own snorkeling gear and had a blast. (don't forget your reef shoes, there were a few bits and pieces at the house but best to bring your own)
Even though we were walking distance to cafes / shops the road was far enough away not to be noticeable (noise wise). Having stayed closer to the road before the bike/car noise can be annoying. Roosters also seemed a bit quieter here ;)
Nice big open space home with everything you need. Pity didn't have another bedroom so we could have more family with us. My only slight moan would be as we stayed in the upstairs bedroom, it would have been better sleep with a better fan as the heat rises and found it quite warm up there, brought the portable fan up as ceiling fan wasn't doing much.
It was so much nicer renting a house than staying in a pokey hotel room.
Would we stay here again, for sure!

“My island home away from home - a little slice of paradise”
Reviewed 27 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

person found this review helpful

My third stay at Taakoka Beachfront villas and once again we were spoilt by Sarah and Adam's hospitality, the beautiful vista of the lagoon and the friendly morning greetings from the local populace - one cat, two dogs and various chickens.

The villa is stocked with everything you need from an abundance of towels to a handy light for traversing the roads in the dark to the local food markets and on arrival we were welcomed with a platter of fresh island fruits and as a surprise for one guest a delicious birthday cake! Surprisingly the showers are also super good power showers!

Taakoka never fails to deliver and a real positive is the location - you're central to all the key island services, the lagoon, cafes, resorts for when you need a pina coladas and some island fries and the local night time markets but still located out of the hub of Avarua. There are plenty of local places to eat at and they cater to all tastes, culinary needs and budgets.

I would highly recommend hiring a push bike for your stay and exploring the island and all it has to offer. Rarotonga is such a fascinating island and cycling around allows you to experience the culture and stop at the local churches and gardens.

Be prepared to relax when you're there, things are done on island time and it's amazing how quickly you adjust to the slower pace of life when you're lazing by Taakoka's pool.

Don't forget to bring mossie repellent (a must), although the local chemist is well stocked, a back pack so you can easily carry anything you buy from the markets on your bike and reef shoes for when you go kayaking and snorkeling in the lagoon.

Another magic holiday and I'm planning and looking forward to my next visit already.

“Best Sunrise On The Island!”
Reviewed 23 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We have just completed our "fourth" holiday at Taakoka Villas in Muri Beach. It is our most favorite place to stay on the Island. I highly recommend this Villa for its spacious rooms, private swimming pool, spectacular views of the Morning Sunrise rising from the Lagoon which is on your doorstep for snorkeling and kayaking which are provided. Sarah and Adam are the friendliest, efficient and most caring hosts. They will make your holiday one to remember.
We hired the bicycles and cycled everyday. We had everything on our doorstep, Cafes, rental car/scooters/bikes offices and the food night markets are only few doors down. If you want a great Rarotonga Holiday memory, then Taakoka Muri Beachfront Villa is the place you want to stay!
