“STUNNING!! AMAZING !! RECOMMEND BEST ACCOMO ON THE ISLAND !!”
Reviewed 25 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

person found this review helpful

Where do I start !
Even before we arrived for our vacation, the owners of the beautiful holiday villa (Desa and Phil) were great with communication, answering all our questions and because we were travelling with a newlywed couple, they provided a bottle of champers and beers plus did up there room with flowers and a little gift !!! Already winning with us !!

Now on to the villa! 1 word - Amazing !!!
Large open living area. Kitchen fully equipped with everything so you can utilize to the best of your ability. Both inside and out were clear/ tidy. The rooms all separate, including there own en suites and walk in wardrobes (+ aircon/ TV/ Ceililng Fan) and all face the pool which allows for an amazing view in the mornings.

Property is inland so not right on the beach but we didn't find this a problem. We cruised to the beach when we wanted to. Having the pool onsite cooled us all off all throughout day and night. We all admitted that the pool was definitely a life saver !!!

The above doesn't sum up our accommodation but it is a tease of what you'll receive. HIGHLY RECOMMEND !! We know that when we return back to the beautiful island, this will be our 1st accomo option forsure !!

“Perfect Paradise at Pacific Palms”
Reviewed 1 February 2016 for a stay in October 2015

Desa and Phil have created a luxury home away from home that is relaxing and so easy to be in I didn't want to leave.
We had about 20 people over for dinner one night, plus the six of us and the house and facilities handled the crowd well. We got the barbecue out, made salads and turned the music on. Fabulous.
The bedrooms are sanctuaries so when it all gets a bit much, off you go, close the door, put the fan on and you don't hear anything going on outside.
The large verandahs were we we hung out every day (even when the daily shower came through), lounging on the huge cushions that then went in the pool to lounge on when it all got too hot.
Perfect Paradise

“Like walking into your dream home..."”
Reviewed 4 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Love at first sight - I could live in this airy, light spacious, uncluttered, beautifully furnished, 'good vibes' house. Felt good from the moment you walked in, You can hear and see the sea, but just want to sink into that turquoise pool off the deck and courtyard, and float on one of the huge pool cushions, sipping your gin and tonic. The floor plan is so cleverly designed to cope with a crowd, yet all the tenants have private, quiet spaces and ensuites. More than one cook in the kitchen area is not a problem - and why wouldn't you want to be in that spacious kitchen, seeing everything thanks to the fabulous mirror splashback wall? I want one of those! The owners are to be congratulated on their design and taste. Superb and stylishly cool.

“The Best House in Rarotonga!”
Reviewed 7 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015
1
person found this review helpful

Stayed here for a few nights at the end of Sept and loved every minute of it! This house is amazing....like something you see in a design magazine. It has everything you could possibly want and need. Location is great, on the hillside, directly opposite the beach which is a one minute walk away, with filtered views of the ocean. This makes it very private and quiet, unlike many of the houses built close to the road and on the ocean front. The house is brand new, only completed earlier this year, so absolutely everything works. It is gob smackingly gorgeous and it is impossible to not say 'wow' when you enter.
Everything has been thought of; huge living space, floor to ceiling windows, designer kitchen with everything you could possibly need, [dishwasher, hob, oven, microwave etc..], full laundry, huge leather sofa, flat screen TV with 100 movies on tap, air con, three very chic bedrooms, wonderful beds, all en suite with beautiful towels, bed linen,and stylishly furnished throughout. The curtains are thick and black so lie-ins are easy to achieve. All the bedrooms open on the pool. There are bean bags loungers which can be placed in the pool or kept on the ample sized deck. The whole house and surroundings are immaculate. Desa and Phil, who own and run the house, have done a brilliant job in building it from scratch with all the building materials brought to the site from NZ. The quality and finish is exceptional. Desa keeps the house extremely neat and clean and is a fantastic host. She is a perfectionist so absolutely everything has been thought of and she is also great company.
We loved our stay at Pacific Palms luxury Villa ,Rarotonga and in the time we were there we didn't see a house of comparable design and style on the whole of the island. If you want a lot of space, privacy, quiet, a great pool, proximity to restaurants and access to the beach, all wrapped up in amazing architecture then this is the place for you. We'll be back for a much longer stay next year!

“Truly Perfect”
Reviewed 30 June 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Wow this place really is everything it says, and more besides!
We have stayed in properties all over the world, and honestly couldn't fault this one.
It is luxurious to the core, spacious, and so comfortable, yet has a real homely feel about it. The details are so well thought out - I must have spent the first 24hrs just taking in the little touches of genius in the design and build.
The inside/outside flow is so clever and makes you feel connected to all parts at once - yet easily closed off to create a sense of privacy. As for the pool - perfect.
The beds were so comfortable I didn’t want to get up in the mornings. The en-suites are a dream, but the walk in robes - I want one of my own! There's more than enough storage which is unusual nowadays.
The kitchen is so fully kitted out there's nothing you could need - absolutely a joy to be in.
The location is perfect too! It's on the better side and has the best beaches on the island within easy walking distance. Complete tranquillity, yet so close to all the must-go-to places.
I'm normally very harsh with my comments - but at this place I cannot fault it, or the wonderful care and attention we got from the manager. Perfection!
We WILL be back!
