Welcome to “Tukaka Villa” (in Matavera) – this home should be considered a very attractive option to a resort or a motel. Ideal for Kiwi and Aussie families where you prefer to be more ‘self serviced' and private in your lifestyle. Less than ten years old and recently renovated this home is three bedrooms, with an open plan living area leading out to a large sheltered deck. It is of solid concrete block construction with high ceilings and remains cool with ceiling fans in all bedroom and living areas as well as air-conditioning in the lounge and three bedrooms. The home is private, fully fenced, sheltered and set well back from the main road in a large private garden setting and ideal for a large family or up to three couples. You can drive your car right up to the house and park it out of the sun under the carport, at the rear of the house. The deck adjoins a large 7m x 3.5m decked pool for the family to enjoy all year round. There is a BBQ and outdoor dining table on the deck, 45” Plasma TV as well as docking station/speakers for your iPhone and your music options.

From the airport it is less than 20 mins drive in a clockwise direction. ‘Tukaka Villa’ is about 3 km (5 mins) from Muri Beach which is considered one of the best lagoons on the island. It is safe for children and is a great place to spend most of your beach time. Air New Zealand, Virgin and Jetstar fly from Auckland.

    The house and property was exactly like the photos - it was perfect for us. The swimming pool and the bbq was a hit. The huge covered deck gave us great sun shelter. Beds were really comfortable. We loved it.

  • Location and privacy were great

    Location and privacy were great. Facilities were really good with all that we needed for our celebration and holiday. A well set out house with comfortable beds and lots of extras like games, books, magazines, chilly bin and beach bags. The welcome pack of fridge food, water, tea and coffee was awesome and the fresh flowers a lovely touch. Very clean and comfortable with heaps of space and a pool to cool off in. Great coffee and croissants just a few meters up the road too.

    This is one lovely house, set in a very pretty tropical garden property. We had a fabulous stay here. The weather was a bit windy during our visit, but the pool is so sheltered it was lovely and hot and we were really pleased not to have booked beachside! The location was great for everything. Had a wonderful time in Rarotonga and wondered why I hadn’t come here sooner!

    Good location if you have transportation : Quiet and secure property with immaculate gardens. House well appointed and extremely clean. Shotgun to deal with the roosters would have been useful but no alarm clock needed !
