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.

Things for consideration
The house has a great layout and great for families. Things to consider are, there is a steep dangerous driveway, ants are present and you will need a car because everything is a long way.

Perfect family retreat
This is a lovely, thoughtfully designed and presented home, perfect for a family or multi-generational group. Huge family kitchen and living areas that open up on both sides, gorgeous deck, sunset facing, wonderful pool area with shaded cabana, large tables for 10 inside and out, and rooms have huge glass sliding doors and shutters. Everything you need for a visit to Rarotonga. It's not on the beach, but makes up for this with the amazing pool (swimmable in July even though not heated), gorgeous views and cool breezes. Ryan is great to deal with - friendly and quick to respond.

The Perfect Holiday House!
We have just returned from 7 nights at Teravaki Estate and hand on heart it is the BEST property we have ever stayed in. . It was our first trip to Rarotonga and while there were many things we wanted to see and do..... we spent 90% of our time swimming in the pool, reading on the day-bed or simply "hanging" at Teravaki. . These are our highlights; . 1. THE POOL - It's deep, so plenty of space to bomb and dive to your hearts content. We've had a week of bombing competitions, relay races, diving competitions, underwater length races, synchonised swimming routines..... you name it, we did it! . 2. THAT DAY BED - Yes, it's as good if not better than the photos. I read 3 books in 7 days, most of them either on the bed or floating on a lilo in the pool when it was too hot. . 3. THE SPACE - The house is HUGE, so there's plenty of room for everyone. From the 10 seater tables (yes one inside and one out), to the couch that looks like it would fit a rugby team..... the place is designed around comfort, relaxing and having spaces for friends and family to gather. . 4. THE VIEW - It's beautiful! You're a small way up a hill behind the airport overlooking the bush and out over the ocean. There's a particular spot in the pool where you can just hang over the edge and watch the world go by. 9 times out of 10 I'd find my husband down there with a beer nearby, UE boom in the background with a big smile on his face. . 5. NO DEVICES - We have a couple of device obsessed daughters who went 7 days without using their ipads once. When they initially found out that they wouldn't be getting wifi the bottom lips dropped and it sounded like their worlds were ending......... then they found the pool, then the bush up the back of the property, then the frangipani trees, then the neighbours dog (renamed Prince for 7 days), then the roosters, then the chicken and her babies, then the tree that had mangos that turned out not to be mangos, then the kids at the bottom of the hill, then the creepy crawly bugs that freaked them out but they kept going back for more. It was like turning back the clock and watching our kids play like we did as kids, pre internet. . Thank you Ryan and whanau for the use of your beautiful home, it was a perfect holiday.

opulent beauty
Situated in the hills above the airport, we loved sitting on the deck with a glass of wine leisurely watching the planes coming and going, majestic views of the ocean and so peaceful. Every room has been finished tastefully beautiful pieces of art decorate this home, and the antique door certainly was a beautiful addition we loved our time at Teravaki estate immensely.

Perfect quality setting for family fun in the sun ... or rain. With this space to share no one cared if it rained.
This place is just awesome. The photos are 100% accurate but simply don't show how when all put together this is a stunning place to get away and relax in. It totally exeeded my expectations and I cannot imagine anyone being disappointed. The owner was so helpful and friendly and the feel of the place is a credit to the Manager. We were a family group of 6 with 3 generations and none of us could think of anything that would make this place better. Thanks for the wonderful hoilday.

PARADISE
My family and I visited Rarotonga and stayed at the beautiful Teravaki Estate. It exceeded all our expectations and more, I cannot recommend staying here enough, you will be have no regrets. The pictures do not do the paradise that it is justice. Ryan who owns the house is amazing to deal with, made booking a breeze and any questions were always answered extremely promptly. I will most certainly be back to stay again with more friends as this gem is some where that cannot be only visited once.
