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 really enjoyed our stay, amazing location directly across from the beach, perfect spot for swimming and snorkelling. House was equipped with everything we needed. Eddie was great, communication was amazing, and he emailed to ensure we were settled several times during our stay. We would recomend to others and stay again next time. Thankyou !

We had a wonderful holiday and made this house our own home for the duration. The property is large and the house is lovely. A few things need updating but we were overall very happy. The location is good, over the road from the beach meant we were protected from the wind. There is a local dog that steals shoes and we lost a few before we realised and stored them all inside. Thanks Eddie, we really enjoyed our stay.

What a great place to stay, excellent spot across from the Fruits of Rarotonga, the best snorkeling spot, House was great for kids lots of space, front and back decks, bbq, coconuts etc. Charlie's is just a short walk down the road, they do amazing food and cocktails, there is a little shop down the road to grab the morning paper. Plenty of sheets and towels, everything we needed. Eddie was great to deal with had no issues whatsoever. Thanks we will be back.

The house is very well set up for both inside and outside living. It has a good kitchen and large lounge. We really enjoyed our stay and will be looking it up first if we visit Rarotonga again.

Great value for a fab location. Just across the road is the best snorkeling. Eddie was a super host that went above and beyond in that - we locked ourselves out and he dropped off extra key to us mid week. We can’t wait to go back to the Cook Islands again. This place was perfect for a group of ladies like us who had an active holiday going out and about and it would also be great for a family wanting a house base. Only thing to note is bring earplugs for the roosters which you will hear no matter where you stay on the islands and they start crowing just before day break! Many fun memories on this holiday!
