Our Resort Report

OUR Thoughts on Natura Beach Villas, Ara Tapu, Vaimaanga, Rarotonga
It is hard to imagine a more perfect location. The two Natura Beach Villas are located next door to each other on separate sections and both front an amazing beach and a beautiful natural lagoon across a beachfront lawn framed by mature coconut palms. Both Villas are quite different and have a different tariff structure. In both cases, the tariff includes a service with linen change and gardening every 3 days as well as the use of kayaks and snorkelling equipment, which guests of both villas share.

What Natura Holiday Homes Say About Beach Villas 1 and 2:
“Two beautiful beach houses located on Rarotonga's fabulous pollution-free south coast with icing sugar beaches, crystal clear blue lagoon teaming with fish, coral and seaweed. Immaculate gardens filled with tropical hibiscus, bougainvillea and exotic palms. Tropical trees bearing pawpaw, banana, avocado, coconut, lemon, lime, passionfruit, mint, basil, and curry leaves. Decor features beautiful furniture, original Pacific art, bi-fold doors that maximise indoor-outdoor living, multiple dining options including formal, terrace, garden and beachfront settings, quintessential BBQ, fabulous sunsets. Our 2 beach villas feature Wigmore's Superstore 500m away, Vaima Restaurant nearby, Yellow Hibiscus adjacent, located next to Palm Grove Resort. These beach houses will not disappoint. Ideal for professional families or group of friends seeking something nice.

Natura Holiday Homes provide extra services to you with home cleaning and linen changes every three days; and provide round the clock maintenance support in case of malfunctions.”

Bullet Natura Beach Villa 1
Bullet 4 Bedroom House with Private Swimming Pool.

The house itself, with 4 bedrooms (plus a study which can convert to a compact-sized fifth bedroom), offers plenty of living space including a full-sized kitchen and a large lounge, but it’s the wide veranda running the length of the house which is the special feature. This veranda, with its outdoor lounge area, outdoor dining setting, BBQ and Day Bed, is so big, it’s almost like having a second house dedicated to outdoor living attached to the main house.  The size of Natura Beach Villa 1 is 400m2.

Dining locations abound with an internal dining area (seats 10), a veranda setting (seats 10) and a garden picnic table right on the beach front.

The kitchen with its upright double-door fridge/freezer, cook-top, oven, microwave, full stock of pots, pans, crockery, cutlery and glassware is fully equipped (it’s only missing a dishwasher) for cooking any meal.  Wigmore’s Super Store (groceries, takeaway food and much more) is an easy flat walk only 500 metres along the road.  

Natura Beach Villa 1 sleeps up to 10 people and with its 2 bathrooms, works equally well for 2 couples sharing a holiday while each couple retains personal space.  At this villa, the tariff is set for a minimum 4 guests sharing (additional guests up to a total of 10 are charged at $50 per adult per night), so it also works well for an extended family or a group of friends sharing expenses and, when combined with Natura Beach Villa 2 next door can cater for a total of 16.  For bigger groups of friends or bigger extended families, by combining both villas with Natura Beach Bungalow (located around 500 metres along the road), the three together can jointly cater for a group of 21 guests.

Natura Beach Villa 1 has a minimum 5-night stay policy.

General note re a holiday home stay.
Holiday homes are a very welcome addition to the accommodation options available on Rarotonga.  Obviously, individual holiday homes offer widely differing standards and specifications as to what is included and the services which are available to guests taking this accommodation option. As a general rule, a holiday home is a private citizen’s private residence or holiday place and, unlike a stay at a resort, a manager or owner may not be available on-site. However, the owner (or an agent of the owner) may be available to sort out any problems or maintenance issues encountered (and visits by neighbours’ dogs and chickens!!) It is sensible to maintain a reasonable level of security and to keep up a personal insect repellent program. Through understanding what this accommodation style entails, a really enjoyable holiday can be had in a holiday home in Rarotonga.

Getting to and from Natura Beach Villas
Guests at both Natura Beach Villas enjoy a meet & greet on arrival with flower lei and return airport transfers are provided.

As previously mentioned, these properties are in a spectacular location being right on the beach and only 500 metres from Wigmore’s Super Store for groceries and supplies.  Another feature of the location is the proximity to Palm Grove Resort and almost directly across the road from Palm Grove’s Yellow Hibiscus Restaurant – a very pleasant little beach-style restaurant known for its laid-back family-friendly service and well-priced food.

Natura Beach Villas are almost exactly half way around the island from Avarua (the main town), so, it’s approximately 16km to town either via Muri Lagoon (anti-clock-wise) one way or via Arorangi in the clock-wise direction, the Round-Island Bus runs both ways every hour during the day. By utilising the bus service to get around Rarotonga and due to there being a good grocery shop handy to the villas, it really isn’t necessary to hire a car when staying here.

Kids Policy
Children really enjoy the location and will spend hours on the beach and swimming and snorkelling in the lagoon.
