Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Jaret was awesome to deal with. Top notch communication, checked in with us to make sure we were all settled in and was only a phone call away if we needed anything. House was very spacious, clean and tidy and great indoor/outdoor flow. Nice outdoor area and pool. Great location with muri a stones throw away, shops right next door and beach across the road. Loved it

Relaxing Bliss!
Amazing place for any family environment, very private with well maintained grounds and pool area…. book both houses for the ultimate family experience, they also offer car hire which is picked up and dropped off at the airport at the end of your holiday experience. Shops are right next door for food, refreshments and amenity’s including a fish n chip shop and coffee cart plus a few more meters to a restaurant/bar….. very highly recommended!

Fantastic holiday home very close the Muri Beach. Good sized house with a great range of amenities. Well set up kitchen with everything you need. All of the rooms are of a good size and also has a great outdoor covered area. Beautiful, well maintained gardens with heaps of space. Amber and Jaret are excellent hosts and made our stay a wonderful holiday. I can highly recommend this holiday home no problem at all.

Great Location Great House
The house is great and as described. Very well appointed with everything you could need. Jaret and Amber were very accommodating. Location is great as well. We loved the kayaks that were there for everyone's use and the pool is very nice as well. Grounds are lovely and tidy. And really appreciated the landline so you could make local calls, really helped with organising stuff! Would highly recommend!

Fantastic large family friendly home
Our family of 4 loved the spacious house and lawn, great pool area and beautiful gardens. Lovely outdoor spaces. Just across the road to the beach and close to central Muri for restaurants and shops. Wonderful friendly hosts. Quiet neighbourhood. Perfect.

Great stay!
We loved our stay at this villa! The major positives were the communal swimming pool and the immediate close proximity to a bakery, liquor store, small grocery store and independent small restaurants. Our local hosts were amazing. They looked after all of our needs and we’re a very close call away. In fact, our local car rental agency was also owned by Jarret and Amber ‘go Cook Islands’ ... absolutely fabulous to deal with! The ocean is located across the road with beautiful black rock stones and lots of hermit crabs and tital pools for the kids to keep busy with! Rarotonga, you are beautiful and wish to see you again!

Wonderful!
Our time in the Cook Islands was perfect, and we loved staying here. We had everything we needed, and the owner was available when we had a couple of questions during our stay. We would absolutely return in the future.
