We stayed this villa for 4 nights and really enjoyed staying here. The hosts are very kind and friendly, and the driver who picked up was also nice and friendly. The room we stayed was clean and tidy and everything we needed was equipped. We could do snorkel at the beach just a few minuits away. We really would like...

Definitely on our return list. Very comfortable little resort 30 meters from the beach. Clinton and Maria do a great job in helping you having a very relaxed time. Reef shoes and kayak's are free to use and there is plenty of fish in the lagoon to go and have a look at (snorkels are free for use too). Villa...

Just a stroll from the beach you`ll find this small and cosy complex with spacious rooms and all the equipment possible for selfcatering (movies, beach shoes, kayaks). Unfortunately the apartment wasn`t that clean when we got it (someone must have shaved off all their beard in the shower - disgusting). The owners were helpful and super serviceminded, but be aware...

This small resort, just a stroll from the beach, is the perfect little hideaway. If you are looking for the peaceful and unspoilt island life, this is the place to go. The garden villas are recommended for the real paradise experience in the luscious greens. Good service with a personal touch. Pack your pareu (sarong skirt) and sun screen! Practical:...

Roselle & Eric run a nice well kept set of villas on the north western corner of the main Island of Rarotonga, in the Cook Islands. Our fourth visit to the islands was great. We travelled in August, a really busy time as many Kiwi's and Australians escape winters for sun, sand and a relaxing time. Our villa had a...

My husband and myself spent 2 nights here in August The hosts Eric and Rosallie were most friendly and a great source of knowledge. Our upstairs room was impeccable, clean, tidy and very quiet. We would stay again any time. Our only complaint was the internet service. Rarotonga seems to have a sketchy service and no one line seems to...

Villa 1 and 2 are lovely- garden views, covered outdoor area. Private. We had 4 single beds - plenty of room. A quiet setting compared to large complexes and a 30 second walk to beach and magnificent sunsets . Staff friendly and unobtrusive - lovely

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Cooks Oasis Holiday Villas are located in Arorangi, Rarotonga. We have 8 self catering villas nestled within tropical gardens. Enjoy our fresh water cool-off pool and other great complimentary facilities including snorkelling gear, sun lounges, kayaks and beach towels. We are on the western, sunny and sheltered side of the island where you can watch the fantastic sunsets. The Arorangi district is only 15 minutes to the main Township of Avarua and 10 minutes to the airport. Take less than a minute stroll down the path to the white sand beach and beautiful lagoon. Perfect for sunbathing, relaxing, and watching the whales cruise by (in winter). For some family fun try out our kayaks, or go snorkeling and view the tropical fish. Self-cater or enjoy eating out at one of 6 restaurants in easy walking distance. Our secluded property with its comfortable and stylish pacific rooms combined with our excellent location on the island and excellent service really are a winning combination. We pride ourselves on running a “boutique” look, feel, and service property without the high-end expense. We are family owner operators. Our main focus is to ensure our guests have a great stay at The Cooks Oasis Holiday Villas and enjoy their time in Rarotonga. ... more   less
