I came across this home and villa and enquired about the accommodation, the communication with the owners Charlie and Mary was very quick and could feel that I could ask any questions. We arrived in around midnight to Rarotonga and even though...

We were lucky to stay at Charlie & Mary's holiday home for 10 nights and it really did feel like a home away from home. Mary & Charie were lovely to deal with before, during and after our stay and went out of their way to help us with our queries, change our dates around, booked our transfers, suggested car/scooter...

The hosts were very friendly and welcoming. A lovely fruit basket awaited us and we were gifted with produce from the hosts often. They were also happy to sort out any airport transfers etc for us.... nothing was too much trouble. Even had breakfast muffins delivered one morn. Have to say we did have trouble with the showers in the...

I have just returned from the holiday of a lifetime in Rarotonga. Fortunate enough to be at a wedding, with 50 of my great friends, I also had the pleasure of staying at Te Akapuao Holiday Home and Studio Villas. From the moment we arrived, Mary and Charlie treated us like we were their own family. Nothing was a drama,...

We were a group of 14 friends, who needed a place to stay in Rarotonga for a friends wedding in Muri Beach - and am so glad we found Te Akapuao!

I celebrated my 40th birthday in Raro and it was awesome to be able to hire the entire property for a really reasonable price, we had our own pool too! It was a fantastic space to have a party where I could invite other friends to. Mary and Charlie are fabulous hosts and make you feel like you're at home....

Il start with the positives...amazing setting, nice hosts and good location. I stayed in the main house and it was clean and comfortable. Negatives - had cold showers for most of our stay and unfortunately this was not fixed during our 9 day stay; the roosters will drive you absolutely insane! Woke us up at about 3am every single day!...
