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.

Terry and property manager Kimi was a pleasure to deal with. Property is everything promised.
We had a fabulous time. The house has everything you need. It is right on the beach and very private. Close to supermarket, cafes and beachside restaurants. Can highly recommend it. Felt like a home away from home.

Excellent location and beautiful views
This our second stay at this home. We enjoyed it so much two years ago, we decided to book again. A great location not too far from town and a great place to enjoy the beach and sunsets. The home is nicely maintained and has some recent updates including new windows with screens and dishwasher. The home has a well equipped kitchen, so we were not limited in our gourmet pursuits. The owner responded to inquiries very promptly and provide helpful and useful information on the amenities near the home and use of the home. The housekeeper came to welcome us to the home and provided us with an orientation of the home. We would stay at this home a third time. Kia Orana!

Private, well-equipped and unfussy retreat.
A great home base for our vacation, it was comfortable and had everything we needed, and the location not to be beat. Easy walking distance to local restaurants and little shops, and easy to hop on a bus or hire a car or scooter to explore with. We loved the large, private yard with flowers and fruit trees, and easy direct access to the quiet, sandy beach. We spent plenty of time watching whales cruise by beyond the reef, checking out sea life within the lagoon, and chilling out on the sand with the local kitty (Stewie, what a love!), the occasional dog, and being entertained by hens, peeps, myna birds, and the cocky roosters. Being tucked away from the road and oriented towards the beach, it was quiet and private and we took in some amazing sunsets, never got tired of that view! The house itself felt like a tropical version of a Canadian vacation home, with the pine interior, high ceilings in the living area and lots of windows to keep it light, bright and breezy. With the usual home conveniences, and a few extras that made our stay easy, it felt like a home away from home. Not fancy, but comfortable, and well kept, and everything worked as it should. Thank you to Kimi the caretaker, for being accessible and awesome, and Terry it was a cool surprise to meet you and thank you in person for sharing your home, we loved everything except having to leave. Looking forward to returning to the Cooks, we are totally smitten; Rarotonga was amazing, Mauke something else completely. 2 islands down, 13 to go! Hope we get to call this place our home base again soon.

Good Value very comfortable. Excellent host
Rarotonga is a great blob out place. It is not the bright lights. We stayed at Nikkis two weeks and read 15 books between us which is great as we needed to just step off the world for a bit. We took our daughter and son and law and two Grandchildren aged 5 months and three. It was an incredible family time and the house and the beach really was just the best. Big enough that we didnt trip over each other yet not too big to make management easy. We had a rental car the whole time we were there and if we went again we would do the same. Thanks Terry and Kimi you were the best.

Wonderfully Relaxing Stay
Our trip to Rarotonga was wonderful. The house was lovely and clean when we arrived. We had an issue with running out of water but was resolved quickly, however, if left us unable to use the dishwater for the rest of the trip because it when back to the reset mode due to no water. This property is shared with a daycare in the back which could be an issue for some people if they didn't know in terms of noise. The neighbours on one side were clearing land and burning a lot of scrubs and grass for 3+ days which left it a bit difficult for a few in our party to sit outside on the deck because of allergies. Location is wonderful and the beach is quiet. Ensure you are aware that the taxi actually costs 20 NZD per person from the airport (15 minutes), which was higher than what we were told. It was actually pretty difficult for us to get around using the buses due to frequency and scheduling. We wished we would have rented a car! Next time! Our favourite part of the trip was the resident kitty! He is so lovely and hope he continues to be cared for well :). Thanks for the enjoyable stay.

A wonderful slice of Paradise
This property was exactly what we needed for our family holiday. The kitchen was a pleasure to cook in with great pans and excellent sharp knifes ( even better than ones I have home).The kids loved the Sandy beach and of Cause the warm water.The blue starfish were a big hit as was the whale we saw go past too. I cannot speak more highly of this place it really made our holiday .Thank you so much Terry for letting us share it.

Excellent!
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Niki's Beach House. The house location was perfect, right next to the beautiful beach / lagoon, convenient for local shops/restaurants and town and fully equipped with everything we needed. Can't wait to go back!

Amazing beachfront home with great for a family trip
We absolutely loved staying at Niki’s house during our trip to Rarotonga. The house is in a quiet neighborhood and is literally steps from the beach. We loved drinking our coffee on the back porch and watching the sun come up, as well as walking to the beach to nearby restaurants and snorkel spots. If you are visiting Rarotonga this house is in a great part of the island and is very easy to get to other places you may want to visit on your stay. There are nice restaurants and cocktails nearby, or hop on the bus or rent a scooter to get around and see more of the island. The house is very spacious with a full kitchen, laundry, and lots of private outdoor space. Many days we felt like we had our own private beach! We would definitely stay here again on our next visit!
