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.

A beautiful "slice of paradise"
Pae Moana is a very modern property with all ameneties that any one could require. It's positioning on the sunset coast is awesome, and being able to walk across their lawn to the white sand and blue waters of the lagoon, with whales leaping out of the water just behind the reef, was amazing. A perfect place to relax and do as much or as little as you want.

A Holiday for everyone!!!
Pae Moana is the perfect holiday spot for all ages. It is situated beside a stunning beach, with great snorkelling, and we even saw a turtle. It contains all the amenities for seaside living, with an upmarket kitchen if you feel like preparing all your meals; in fact you don't need to leave the property, as it it fitted out to accommodate all holiday needs. There's lots to do on the island and the scooters are a fun way to explore and navigate your way around the perimeter. Highlights would be our day trip to Aitutaki, another island with gorgeous beaches and the whitest sand!!! Trader Jacks and Tamarind House are recommended for an evening out as well as the Island Experience at Te Varanui. Pae Moana is the perfect choice for a chilled out, hassle free holiday on the friendly and sunny island of Rarotonga!!!

Perfection!
Pae Moana is the most beautiful holiday home I have ever stayed in! It also happens to be located on a gorgeous beach perfect for safe swimming, snorkelling & kayaking. I can't wait for the opportunity to get back there again! Thoroughly recommend it to anyone considering a holiday in Rarotonga where you enjoy a bit of your own space. The other wonderful thing was that there is a great little beach bar just a short stroll away for those sunset cocktails!

Fantastic property which ticked all the boxes for us - great location too.
Three couples stayed at Pae Moana for nine nights. The property was excellent, with modern fittings and furnishings. The location on the beachfront of Aroa was perfect for swimming, snorkeling and kayaking. Everything we needed for a great holiday was provided. Thanks to the owners and to the property manager. We will be back!

Escape to Paradise
If it's relaxing on an uncrowded beach right at the end of your garden that you are into, then I wouldn't hesitate to recommend a break at Pae Moana. You can expect fantasic safe swimming and snorkeling, magic sunsets and great beach walks. The home is tastfully decorated at the top end, comfortable and everything you can need has been thought of. Enjoy this magic Island and it's friendly people, a memorable holiday awaits anyone who holiday's at this awesome spot.

Perfect location - supreme accommodation
A perfect, new house with everything necessary to make your Rarotongan holiday easy, luxurious and very memorable. Very friendly and approachable manager. Wonderful swimming, snorkelling and kayaking in front of house. Plenty of room on the front lawn and in the house to spread out. House suitable for two families with four children or 3 couples.

5 star stay!
It was our first time in Rarotonga and we didn't know what to expect but what we found at Pae Moana really impressed us from the well appointed rooms to the relaxed 5 star décor, we found every thing was there for a large family to really enjoy their stay, a fully stocked kitchen with all the appliances and gadgets to prepare our own meals. The beach and reef straight out the back door is arguably one of the nicest part of the island [and it was all ours]. We will definitely be back there again... Soon!
