The place to stay on the main island of Rarotonga is on the southern coast where ...
  • the lagoon is at its most beautiful
  • the teal blue waters are a snorkellers paradise
  • the white sand beaches are stunning and uncrowdedSands Villlas beach
  • the mountains provide a spectacular backdrop

In this setting, right on the beach, at Titikaveka, are Sand Villas   

We have created these villas ourselves escaping every day routine.  It works for us.
We invite you to enjoy our island home and be part of our Cook Island family.  Rongo and her team will look after you superbly.
You will want to return time and again

Guest comments

A most beautiful beginning for us as newlweds.  We enjoyed every minute here.  Snorkelling right outside our deck - fabulous.  A perfect setting for romance.  We'll never forget it.  Thank you.

We'll be back for our 10th anniversary.           San & Sandeep Bhatha, Vancouver, BC, Canada


This is our first visit to the Cook Islands and we love it.  The beach, snorkelling, swimming and ambience are out of this world.  This is the most peaceful place.  Thank you for creating such a marvelous villa for us to enjoy.  The architecture is fabulous.  Everything is first class for the guests comfort.  Would truly like to stay longer in paradise.          Linda & Larry, Hawaii, USA


Arrived late at night, thought the villa was great.  Woke up the next morning and realised we were in paradise.  We had a terrific time here.  Wish the villas weren't so popular so we could have stayed longer.           Therese and jetil, Norway


Perfect place to come.  Just great to recharge the batteries.  We will return.               Barrett's, Taupo, NZ


Absolutely fabulous.  Beautiful place.  We've got the best accommodation on the island.  Cook Islanders are beautiful people.  Thanks for a wonderful stay.  See you again soon.                    Kirstin, Bryon Bay, NSW, Australia
