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.

We enjoyed our stay at Clearwater Villa very much. The location is fabulous and the house was spacious, clean and had a view to the beach. The house has a lovely deck, a garden with coconuts, pawpaw and passionfuit available for picking and is very well equipped. We had a great time and hope to return.

Absolutely fantastic property. The photos don't do it justice! Bedrooms are large, light and airy with great ceiling fans, bug screens on all windows and great through breeze. Kitchen is well set up and the BBQ and outdoor table were our go to for all our meals. Super close walk to plenty of beach bars/restaurants. Lovely quiet neighbourhood. 10/10

Loved our stay in the Cook Islands and definitely want to return , however was a little disappointed in the house. Floor was not cleaned , was very dusty. The main lounge is stained and needs to be replaced as it is very uncomfortable, as does 2 of the ceiling fans ( and you really need them due to the heat). Photo’s of the beach are not the like that when you get there , the coral and rocks are all the way to the waters edge . We did enjoy our stay , however the photo’s are not a true representation of the property.

To our surprise the house was much bigger then expected, rooms and beds were comfortable with all the extras required for a lengthy stay. Quite often we would walk the beach and see no one else. A great find and good location for just what we needed!

Excellent place to stay in Raro. The property had everything we needed for a fabulous stay - including heaps of fruits and coconuts for snacking! The location is peaceful and quiet, yet close to bars and restaurants. However, I would recommend renting a car to get around the island. The hosts were easy to get ahold of when needed. I would recommend this place to anyone staying in Raro wanting to get away from it all :)

Great beachfront location on shared property - no others were staying at the same time although a few locals/neighbours used it as a thoroughfare to the beach so not completely private. Amazing avocados, passionfruit, limes and pomegranate in the garden aswell as pawpaw which wasn't ripe but we arrived to fresh pawpaw and pineapple in the fridge which was a nice touch. Resident dog Coco came to visit daily and we wished we had more food to give her as it seems she was abandoned by the owners of front house :( She was super sweet. So many local dogs make friends with you on the beach which is cute. BBQ was great to have. Lots of funny little chickens and roosters roaming around so be prepared to be woken up early! Word of warning - Wi-fi is not free; you have to buy a voucher from the local store to connect to a Bluesky hotspot. There is also a DVD player in the house which listing does not mention, but no dvds so would have been good to know so we could've brought our own. Lovely relaxing place to stay on the sunset side of the island.

Our stay at Clearwater Lagoon Villa made our “first time” visit to Rarotonga an awesome experience.
A home away from home, Clearwater is perfectly situated approximately 10mins from the airport, 15mins from the main township, Avarua. An abundance of wonderful cafes, restaurants, bars dotted around the island (we recommend, palace burgers, trader Jacks, tamarind house restaurant, Vaiana’s bistro & Bar, Bamboo Jacks, Punanganui Markets). We loved waking up in the mornings & sitting on the back veranda having bfast and listening to the crashing waves of the beach which you can also see from the veranda. The villa itself is open plan living which is so ideal in a hot tropical island where the air easily flows through the house. The property is beautifully maintained and looked after by Mata & Cathy who made us feel welcome and at home while we stayed at Clearwater. And last but not least, “Coco” the dog. The week before we arrived in Rarotonga we sadly had to put our beloved fox terrier, Myley to sleep. When Coco turned up at the house the day we arrived in Rarotonga it brought me to tears. Coco was always there when we were at the house and guarded the house while we slept ... just like my Myley. If you are a dog lover, you will fall in love with Coco. We highly recommend Clearwater Lagoon Villa, it is such a wonderful place to relax & reset. From Jacinta, Chardaye & Jamie, a warm “Meitaki Maata!”

Great place to stay in Rarotonga
We really enjoyed our stay at Clearwater Lagoon Villa. Good location on the Western side of the island. Private access to a quiet section of beach with great snorkeling. Villa had everything that we needed, we loved having the ability to cook at the accommodation when we didn't feel like going out. All at a very reasonable price.
