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.

Perfect hideaway
The location was amazing, a stones throw from the beach but very secluded property. Carlos was a wonderful host and made us feel very welcome. The flat was very clean and well equipped. Would definitely stay there again.

A great 10 day stay
Carlos and Roberta were wonderful hosts, kind, generous and attentive. We had the apartment facing the back yard. > The accommodation was a few minutes walk from the beach. > The Edgewater resort a few minutes walk away either via beach or by road > Two sets of child and adult snorkeling gear (mask, flippers, sea-shoes) supplied. > Air conditioning was a ceiling fan in bedroom and rotary fan in lounge, cooled us down enough in 28 degree heat. > The safe is large enough for 2 mobile phones, 3 passports, a wallet and some keys. > Not much in way of TV stations, however didn't need these as the entertainment center was stocked with over 1000 movies. > 4 lounges, a table and chairs available outside to lounge about and watch the myna birds and the occasional chicken. > Like the rest of the island - only pay-as-you go WIFI is available. > Hired a car from the friendly Polynesian rentals staff at Edgewater. A highly recommended home-away-from-home and we would happily come back for another 10 days.

It was great!
We had a great stay with Carlo. He was a kind, generous and attentive host. The one bedroom apartment was very nice and included washer and dryer and a great hot water shower as well as all the normal stuff. Carlo has a beautiful, private, nicely landscaped yard just a couple minutes walk from the beach with great sunsets. We would not hesitate to stay there again.

Ideal location coupled with an excellent host in a Pacific paradise
Tree house B&B located at Arorangi is ideally located for an enjoyable cook island experience. Just a short walk to the unspoilt lagoon for a refreshing swim or to catch a magnificent sunset in the early evening everything from dining, car hire, fresh produce, all your needs are close at hand. The accommodation is very comfortable set in well appointed gardens creating a relaxing atmosphere after a day out and about. The hosts Carlo and Roberta are exceptional people always willing to offer assistance or advice if needed. I would have no hesitation in recommending Treehouse B&B for visitors to the Cook Islands.

What a wonderful time we had with you and Margot. You were such happy, gracious persons - and you covered so many of the "things to see and do" from west to east". We enjoyed our conversations from travel, food experience, to host people etc. We had lots in common and would love to see you again here someday to explore more and share new ideas, story or whatever coming in mind. Best to you both! Cheers, Carlo and Roberta

A perfect place!
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! Carlo picked us up early in the morning, stored our luggage, and dropped us off at a nearby resort until we were able to check-in later that day (which he let us do a few hours early). The apartment had everything we needed for 5 nights and was a very homey place to stay. The two fans provided made for comfortable sleeping conditions, despite the summer heat! We walked to the beach (~2 minutes away) to enjoy our coffee every morning, went swimming there almost every day among incredible tropical fish, and enjoyed several stunning sunsets there. We also took advantage of Carlo's amazing cooking one night - served at our chosen on the private deck! Perfect! Carlo also provided a trip back the airport the night we flew out, after again storing our luggage all day. Overall, our hosts provided us with a relaxing, wonderful vacation on Raro. Thank you for everything, Carlo and Roberta!

Perfect location for a private and relaxing getaway
This accommodation was exactly what we were looking for. Located down a long driveway away from the road and less than a minute down to the beach; the Tree House B&B offered privacy for a relaxing island holiday. The ground floor flat was clean and tidy, with all the basics you should need for a short stay. We especially appreciated the snorkelling gear and beach shoes which were available for us to use. There is so much to see in the lagoon just outside the accommodation! The flat backed out onto a lovely private garden with deck chairs for relaxing in the sun. Our hosts Carlo and Roberta were incredibly warm and obliging. Carlo picked us up from the airport and gave us a run down of the local shops and restaurants on our way to the house. Carlo himself is an amazing chef, and we had some delicious meals prepared by him; all served outside on the deck! We had a wonderful holiday and we would not have wanted to stay anywhere else. We would really like to go back one day.

Georgina was a great guest! She was very friendly, clean and respectful of the property. She left my place in great condition and made it very easy for me to prepare for the next guest. I really appreciated that. I’d gladly host Georgina again and highly recommend others to do the same!

Great Host and a relaxing place to stay.
Well to start with Carlo and Roberta, are such warm and beautiful people. We arrived 10.20pm 25th June 2015 to be greeted by Carlo. After taking us to a place for us to get a few supplies etc we made our way to our accommodation. When we walked in it had a homely comfortable feel with everything we needed. I could not wait till the morning, so I went for a walk to the shoreline which would be 100 meters from where we are staying. Every afternoon Carlo would bring us the local paper and make sure we were going ok? With that Carlo gave us some places where we would find great meals and entertainment etc. We tried most of the suggestions and went to the Windjammer Resturant. The staff were great specially the chief (our host Carlo). Our group were all happy with their meals. We will pass on our pleasant stay to our family and friends if they wish to travel to Raratonga.
