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.

Great place for extended family
We booked the house for an extended family trip and it worked brilliantly. Grandparents took the downstairs executive bedrooms (noted bigger than studio appartments in retirement villages!) and we, family of 5, took upstairs. Each had their own space but communal area. Get to know the neighbours too - helps for the little odd jobs needed! Recommended for any extended family to stay!

About the neighbourhood
Stans Mansion is located at the end of the Avatiu Valley(Happy Valley) road. We built the house on family land and no vehicles ( except for tenants and family) are allowed to go beyond this point. We are a few minutes drive from the 'hub' of Raro : Avarua where you will find the main business and shopping precinct and in the opposite direction you will find the airport which is also a few minutes drive. Being a small island , it is not far to travel anywhere, but if you have a rental vehicle ( or scooter) you will see much more! The 'cross the Island' walk passes through our family land and that is a must-do for all travellers. Pa conducts tours a few times a week. Raro Safari Tours is run by my cousin Sam and that is also a must-do for travellers. They will pick you up from the house. Imagine , after a day of sightseeing etc, relaxing with your friends on our huge balcony overlooking the gorgeous Avatiu Valley with the flower-scented evening breezes wafting by. You may choose to sit on your own private balcony at the other end of the house and just chill! There is plenty of room for socializing or having time to yourself. It's your holiday
Access
Car advised
How to get there
We are situated on the 'Cross the Island Walk' about 1.5Km inland from the airport and from Avarua. You will need transport, but in Rarotonga , you are not far from anything and you can set off for a different beach/activity every day. The cool balmy evenings of our valley are worth experiencing!
