The location and views are awe-inspiring. The best section of Rarotonga’s lagoon is a few steps down from Beach Vibe Villa. The villa was a joy to stay in. We didn’t want for anything. The kitchen is stocked with every cooking utensil etc. that you might need. We only cooked 3-4 times in 12 days because there are a great variety of cafes and restaurants nearby. But if we had wanted to cook any of the fresh produce available on the island we would easily have been able to.
The lounge/dining room was very comfortable and leads directly to the deck overlooking the beautiful blue water, coral and fish in the lagoon. When exhausted after a day of snorkelling (snorkels, reef shoes and fins provided by Beach Vibe) and the sun had set with splendid colors, we could watch tv, read the books provided, choose a movie to watch from the large selection provided or sit on the deck and listen to the sound of the waves crashing on the reef or watch the lights of locals out on the lagoon catching fish.
We made extensive use of the outdoor recliners and outdoor table and chairs etc. The beach towels were soft and lovely and the outdoor cushions were handy when reclining.
The bed was big, soft and so very comfortable. The walk in shower is fantastic and the outdoor shower is so useful. The whole villa was very clean and beautifully comfortable. The bed linen and bath towels etc. were clean, soft and fluffy.
We used the provided snorkelling gear, canoes and even the bikes. Everything was in good condition. The villa is sheltered and private with the most beautiful views over the lagoon and out the front are views of the interior mountains. We cannot praise Natalie and Jeff highly enough. They are extremely helpful, knowledgeable and just such lovely people. Thank you Kelly, for giving people the chance to stay in this piece of paradise!
Awesome, absolute beachfront.
An amazing setting, clean bright and cheerful.
Just like the picture and everything we could want.
Restaurants close, snorkelling amazing, relaxing, quiet and wonderful views.
The bikes are to share with next door which could be a problem without a car!
One thing that does needs fixing asap is there was no FIRE ALARM!
Secluded from the rest of the world, looking out over a turquoise lagoon.
Semi detached but you wouldn't know it.
lots of goodies (bikes, boards, masks,towels) even beer and wine on arrival.
weather was wet but the water was beautiful and snorkelling amazing.
Would recommend a car to give you an opportunity to see the rest of the island at your own pace.
Fish and chips, proper meals, food galore all within a few minutes.
only 5hrs from Sydney, we hope to return often.
LOVED our stay! Such a perfect spot right on the beach, just like everyone says it's so good to have the SUP's, kayaks etc all there for you to use, which makes doing things like that much less of an effort. Amazing to have food basics, beers & wine to start with,so appreciated after arriving from our flight! Also the beach was a lot cleaner than others we visited, no seaweed on the sand making a fishy smell (though that may have been from the storm?) Villa is lovely & has everything you need
We loved every aspect of Beach Vibe. It was spacious, clean, modern and well appointed, private, and right on the beach. Most of the time we had the lagoon to ourselves, and there was some great snorkeling out front. We also really appreciated the breakfast starter pack, all the water equipment which was in good condition (we used the snorkels, reef shoes, kayaks, SUP), and the movies/shows on offer.
The local shop (Wigmore's) was within walking distance and had a good range of groceries. As per previous reviews, I still would recommend hiring a car in order to enjoy Rarotonga fully!
Overall we loved our stay at Beach Vibe and will definitely look at staying here again if we return to Rarotonga.
