During my recent trip to Raro I stayed at two of the Main Islander properties. This review relates to Tia's Main Islander which is right on the beach. Open your doors and feel the sea breeze gently cooling you down as you paddle in the lagoon at the bottom of the stairs off your deck. I was impressed upon walking... More

What more can I say!? We stayed at Tia's Islander on the Beach, my husband and I and our 2 children. The service was exceptional, the lady who came to tidy up was like a ghost :D You only knew she had been because everything was tidy and clean. Our hosts were friendly and helpful (they do great smoothies at... More

Walking into the house you are immediately impressed by the view through the bedroom. Floor to ceiling glass revels that from bed to beach to spectacular, idyllic swimming in lagoon is mere steps and that the beach has an almost private feel. The house is large, sprawling, like the beach pad you always wanted with a casual air but plenty... More

We stayed at Tia's Islander on the Beach which is a 2 bedroom cottage directly on the beach at Vaimaanga - you walk down the steps from the deck straight onto the sand. The beach here is much less rocky than other beaches in Rarotonga so you don't shred your feet when you go for a swim or snorkle (heaps... More

Two villas called the Sunset Villas are placed on the westside of the island, across the road is a beautiful beach that is excellent for swimming. The one at the front, the Emil is closer to the road so has a better view of the beach but you do get to see more of the road users as well. Generous... More

We enjoyed our 5 night stay at Main Islander - with one exception: mosquitoes! Strangely, this large, ocean-facing beach house does not have screens. While this was not a problem in the daytime, at dusk, well, slather on the insect-repellent (with Deet). The assets of this rental property are a spacious bedroom with a wonderful floor to ceiling picture window... More

I stayed at the Sunset Villas and bungalows and it was amazing. Owners Geoff and Tia were so helpful providing fresh fruit and even DVDs. The property is so perfect, it it right across from the beach and has a spacious living room, full size kitchen, separate bedroom and bathroom. Outdoors is a secluded sunbathing area with a plunge bath... More

My partner and I were most impressed with the Main Islander on the beach house - and it was a perfect place to spend the 10 days together in Rarotonga.

We stayed in the Sunset Beach Resort and Villa (one of the properties of Main Islander on the Beach) for our honeymoon. After 2 days of our stay a maid came to service the villa and left a very very nasty letter for us giving us instructions and after that the owner- Jeff came at a weird time when me... More

We stayed in March 2009 for ten days and i only have great word to say about this place! From the moment you walk into the garden and see the beautiful sea at your foot steps to the evenings watching the beautiful sun sets! The house is very roomy and the free snorkling and kayaks were an added bonus. There... More
