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.

Faultless from the beginning, during, and until the very end
From the moment you step foot through the "mysterious" entrance to Serenity Villas, a peaceful wave washes over you and you immediately feel you have indeed, arrived in paradise and found serenity. My husband chose the Cook Islands to celebrate his 60th and our two weeks spent in our luxurious villa was nothing short of perfection. On the lagoon..... tick Adults only........... tick Intimate, high end establishment...... tick Value for money....tick Everything ran so smoothly. An informative email prior to our arrival, the private check-in with a lock box for keys, a pantry and bathroom with all of your basic staples/needs (and more). Rick has a wealth of knowledge should you be interested in the history along with current affairs on the island. Otherwise, you will just see him pottering around, making sure everything is perfect for your stay. We loved our morning coconut left for us on our deck (and bananas, passionfruit from the locals), our little visits from Gypsy the resident cray cray cat (who doesn't enter your villa thanks to Ricks strict training). Finally, Rick will welcome you to join him on a Sunday to meditate by the pool and will pass along what he himself learnt from a Balinese healer and Holistic medicine practitioner from Indonesia who personally visited Serenity Villas. He will share with you his knowledge on how to breath, the benefits of meditation, and it will just become yet another memory you can take back home with you.

Serenity found at Serenity Villas
From the moment we walked through the entrance hut, we were in awe of the view, the gardens, the pool, the outdoor shower, king size 4 poster bed, not to mention the snorkeling just a few steps away from our villa. Rick and Jo have thoughtfully developed an oasis that certainly provides the serenity promised in the name,Serenity Villas. Thanks Rick for the little surprises on our veranda and for your little act of kindness. Thanks Jo for the information provided prior to us arriving in the Cook Islands, to ensure we were able to make the most of our stay. Serenity Villas are must for couples looking for a quiet place to stay.

Peaceful Perfection in Paradise
This was the perfect place to spend our Honeymoon. Jo and Rick go above and beyond to ensure the grounds are clean and well-maintained, the villas were designed with tourists in mind and have everything you could possibly need during your stay. The bed is beyond comfortable and the Villa offers a relaxed, secluded, and home away from home vibe. The location is great with a bakery opposite and restaurants within walking distance, everything else is a short drive or bus ride if you feel the need to leave paradise. A few short steps from the deck on your villa to the beautiful waters out of the front, they offer snorkeling (and have a range of gear from snorkels, masks, reef shoes, and fins). If you don't feel like a swim in the inviting ocean the pool is just as inviting and refreshing. We would not hesitate in recommending Serenity for the perfect time in Rarotonga and will definitely be back for many more visits.

Luxurious, excellent accommodation
We have travelled to Rarotonga three times and stay somewhere different each time. We absolutely loved Serenity Villas and will be staying here next time we travel to the Cook Islands. Our beachfront villa was beautifully appointed and had so many extra features that made our stay a little bit special. The pool is beautiful, the snorkelling out front is spectacular and everything we could have needed was in the villa. From start to finish, Jo and Rick ensured our trip was effortless. They have fruit on site which is delicious (the pawpaw and passion fruit were highlights) and the free use of a washing machine was an added bonus. We loved our stay in a super luxurious villa and would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone.

STUNNING
We spent 10 days in this adults only accommodation in beachfront Villa No 1 with unspoilt views and indeed did not want to leave. Top class, well appointed villas and its position on the island make the most of the breathtaking sunsets. Booking direct with Jo made the process smooth and without fault and Rick was the perfect host who was informative, personable and extremely helpful with recommendations whilst also leaving occasional treats of tropical fruits on our deck. This is the perfect place to rest and unwind and would not hesitate to rebook this gem again.

Just Bliss
Normally when I book holiday accommodation online there is usually something that I am disappointed by on arrival. Yes it is safe to say I have high expectations! It’s either the room location, lack of maintenance, dated decor, noise or amenities are not up to scratch. Not the case at Serenity Villas. Villa 4 is Beachfront with unrestricted views and no one able to walk by and because there are just 6 villas and it is adults-only, there is no noise so you can actually relax. Apart from one instance, we had the shared 12x4m pool to ourselves, the villas are exceptionally well-appointed and Rick the Owner cannot help enough with any information needed and the delights of occasional tropical fruit grown on the property left on our deck. We didn’t want to leave. It normally takes us a good couple of weeks to unwind from the pressures of work and life, however after 10 days we felt relaxed and refreshed and this was down to the peaceful and beautiful surroundings of Serenity Villas. I only share reviews when somewhere is well-above or below my expectations and I am delighted to say Serenity Villas is the former.

Exceptional
Absolutely outstanding. Lovely villa with a full kitchen and bbq. Right on the beach with beautiful sunset views over the reef Rick was great, lots of advice on restaurants etc. Pool was brilliant, only for the 4 x villas so we mostly had this to ourselves. Very quiet and restful. Would not stay anywhere else . Just magic.

Sweet Serenity
WOW! Can’t say enough about this place. The pictures on the web site DO NOT do this place justice. Rick and Jo didn’t miss a thing when they built this place last year. Brand new and the best location on the island. The bed was super comfortable and the bathroom was stunning. Full kitchen which we did use and many great restaurants close by. Lots of beach toys and games (thank you for teaching us Rummy-O.) 😊 Rick was very informative and helpful. Thank you so much for your hospitality!
