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.

peace of paradise
Tree house lodge is located on the sheltered side of the island close to town and eateries in walking distance. Its has a wonderful beach and great snorkeling a short walk through the garden. Whales go right past in the season and the sunsets were stunning. Carlo was wonderful. He really looked after us. Nothing was to much trouble. Having dinner with him was a highlight. We cant wait to go back again and would only stay at Tree house lodge.. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. We didn't want to leave.. Thank you Carlo for such a lovely time. Our little apartment was a cozy place away from home with everything we needed.

Perfect place in Raro
Stayed at the Tree house with family for a week and must say we loved it. The house is very cosy, clean with all the amenities you would need and placed in green garden with plenty of shade. Our host was excelent and made us feel as at home. He helped us with tips to navigate and explore Rarotonga. The beach is really close by and was almost empty all the time we stayed. When and not if we return to the Cooks this will be our first choice.

Can't wait to get back
We've been to the Cooks several times and stayed in different places each time, but from now on, this is the place. Excellent location - 5-minute drive to Avarua, 2-minute walk to the beach (excellent snorkeling just a short walk in front of the Edgewater). The house is back from the road, so no road noise. Two nice bedrooms, two nice ensuite bathrooms, two sitting rooms, and a completely equipped kitchen. The main floor flat can be divided into to two separate units (only one will have the kitchen), but our small group took the whole floor, which was well worth it. We really lacked for nothing, and Roberta was a most gracious host. We are already looking forward to our next trip to Rarotonga.

vacanza fantastica
Ho soggiornato con la mia famiglia per una settimana in questo meraviglioso appartamento posto al piano terra con giardino, verande . Ringrazio Carlo e Roberta per l'ospitalità e le preziose informazioni utili per godere al meglio la vacanza sull'isola di Rarotonga. La spiaggia è facilmente raggiungibile a piedi con una stradina e si può fare snorkelling in un mare bellissimo. Assolutamente consigliato per una vacanza all'insegna del relax .

Like staying with friends on vacation
OK, first...If you want the 'resort' theme, no car, and AC/noise/crowds/eat in the same place 3 x day for a week, stop reading now. My wife, daughter and I just left this secret hideaway 2 days ago, and still missing it. We love VRBO and Air B&B options when we travel, and this is another great find! From first e-mail conversation with Carlo, knew would be great. He lives on top floor, and we rented full 2 bedroom units on 1st floor (pay attention to layout on his site). Property hidden behind a restaurant, but 5 minutes from airport as easy to find. Although not ON the beach, private 3 minute walk, and could hear the surf at night with all the windows open. What we didn't hear was BOOM BOOM Tiki bars, traffic, noise all night. OK, so sometimes a got an early wake up call from one of the many free roaming roosters, but you just roll over and go back to sleep since you ARE on vacation. Summer there now, but with celling fans on, comfortable even with our naps in the afternoon. NO AC needed, just a bathing suit and flip flops. Short walk to the beach, but shallow lagoon at this spot so no good snorkeling close by. However walking the beach at low tide, we saw small eels, starfish, and young fish, just like out on the reef, and didn't even have to get wet. We also lucked out with several really great sunsets, even though rainy season. He has snorkel gear, beach towels, and great advice on were to eat and sight see. Can't say enough about how welcome he made us feel. Just like the whole island. Clean, friendly, and fell in love with it all more every day. Beds comfy, shower/bathroom good, and even if the property wasn't the 4 Seasons, laying out in the private yard under the palm trees made you feel like the rich and famous. Tone down your expectations, your on a small island, EVERYTHING is shipped in. Rent a car ahead of time, best and cheapest way to get around from your comfortable home base. Small, 2 lane road around the island leads you to fun places to eat and snorkel, or just lay on the beach and read you book, Easily see us going back to visit again. SO close to New Zealand and Australia, :-( and next time not flying back to LAX!!

a perfect week in november
We stayed for a week in mid November. The apartment is spacious, comfortable and clean. The beach is 50 meters away and is great for snorkelling and admiring the sunsets over the ocean. The homeowner, Carlo, is very kind, discreet and provides many tips on what to do and how to move around the island. Transportation to and from the airport was very accurate and timely. We felt like at ours home. Perfect accommodation! Thank you Carlo!

Comfortable accomodation with everything you need.
We enjoyed this accomodation, great with two kids as it had a full washer and drier plus a few kids toys etc. While not on the beach it is less than 1 min walk down a private track to the beach. Good snorKling right out front and we even saw whales just beyond the reef. Shops are close by which includes a really good takeaways and an excellent bakery. We had a nice peaceful stay (no roosters!).
